'ZDNET Recommends': What exactly does it mean?
ZDNET's recommendations are based on many hours of testing, research, and comparison shopping. We gather data from the best available sources, including vendor and retailer listings as well as other relevant and independent reviews sites. And we pore over customer reviews to find out what matters to real people who already own and use the products and services we’re assessing.
When you click through from our site to a retailer and buy a product or service, we may earn affiliate commissions. This helps support our work, but does not affect what we cover or how, and it does not affect the price you pay. Neither ZDNET nor the author are compensated for these independent reviews. Indeed, we follow strict guidelines that ensure our editorial content is never influenced by advertisers.
ZDNET's editorial team writes on behalf of you, our reader. Our goal is to deliver the most accurate information and the most knowledgeable advice possible in order to help you make smarter buying decisions on tech gear and a wide array of products and services. Our editors thoroughly review and fact-check every article to ensure that our content meets the highest standards. If we have made an error or published misleading information, we will correct or clarify the article. If you see inaccuracies in our content, please report the mistake via this form.
Headsets, headphones, and earbuds are popular gifts to give over the holiday season, and we've spotted a deal on Amazon you shouldn't miss before we all down tools and have our celebrations.
For a limited time, the Razer Nari Essential wireless gaming headset is on sale at Amazon. While you normally pay around $100 for this gaming accessory, Amazon is offering 50% off the typical RRP, bringing the cost down to $50.
The Razer Nari Essential wireless gaming headset is lightweight, comfortable headwear that has earned positive customer reviews worldwide. The headset offers THX Spatial Audio surround sound, basic noise cancellation, an adjustable headband, gel cushion earcups, and a microphone.
Razer has included audio controls and a mic button on the headset for convenience. You can extend the microphone while it's in use -- for example, during a gaming session with friends -- and then collapse it to keep it out of the way when you're only listening to music.
You can expect up to 16 hours of battery life on a single charge. The headset is compatible with PC, PS4, and PS5 gaming consoles.
