Audio is one of the most important things you could have in a stream and even while simply gaming with your friends. Failing to clearly alert your teammates of a nearby enemy or crack a sly joke that’s sure to get the chat LULing is crucial for the gaming experience to be seamless.
The HyperX QuadCast comes packed with all your communication necessities including anti vibration shock mount to avoid background noise, internal pop filter meaning no need for extra attachment in front of microphone, and a quick tap-to-mute sensor with LED indicator for all those potty breaks.

Okay I know what you’re thinking.. “But these don’t have kitty ears on top, I don’t want them!” Don’t worry, Razer makes kitty ear attachments for any headphones. The Beyerdynamic DT 770 Pro headphones are, if only one thing, comfortable. These headphones are originally designed for audio mixing and meant to be worn for hours so there’s no skimping on the comfort. Trust me, I have a pair of them and they’re incredible!!
These are perfect for any headphone upgrade and the sound quality is sure to satisfy the audiophile in your life. When these are on sale they’re worth their weight in gold, not to mention they look professional as heck.
Normal list price: $104.99

Take it back to the classics with this adorable portable handheld console. You may have seen this suspiciously powerful device take TikTok by storm recently. The Powkiddy looks just like a GameBoy and can play just about any retro game you want to get all nostalgic about again from the NES all the way to the PS1. Animal Crossing? Yes. Sonic? Yup. Pokémon? Of course. Shrek? CORRECT. You’ll never want to come back to reality.
Normal list price: $349.99

Having a quality monitor will change your experience more than you’ll ever have realized. In my humble opinion a 28” 4K monitor is the perfect monitor size especially if you have just one monitor. But if you’re a real gamer bro and you have that dual monitor set-up like Ninja, grab two of these while you can.
Samsung has been at the top of the monitor and tv display game for a very long time now and these are no exception. Effortless gaming, incredible 4K clarity, and one of the best looking displays you’ll ever use.
Normal list price: $709.98
Current sale price: $679.99

If you can manage to cop one of these this holiday season, the investment is well worth it!

One of the quickest and easiest ways to spruce up your streaming setup is with some cool color changing LED’s. The best part about them is you can conceal them behind and around any hard surface to create a moody atmosphere as the colors fill your room.
Most LEDs just like these Govee 50ft color changing LED’s come with a remote or an app that allows you to customize the colors, patterns, and brightness intensity of the lights. Some apps even allow you to store your settings in a theme so you can set up your lights once, and every time you turn them on, your favorite color and custom settings are already set up for you. And one of the best things about the Govee system is they will all link together with their other lights within the app for a complete color changing room experience. Just think the Phillips Hue lights but on a budget.
Normal list price: $12.34
Have you ever wanted to know what dead fish tastes like? What about your brother's stinky socks? Well now here’s your chance!! If you’ve never tried Beanboozled, this is one of the best stocking stuffers money can buy. There are 2 beans that look identical, one is a normal flavor like peach, and the other is barf. This is truly a game of chance at its finest.
Buy them for your family, your weird uncle, or your streamer crush. They’ll be sure to thank you when they first bite into any of these disgusting flavors. Even if they aren’t on sale, seeing their faces is worth the money.
(And don’t worry guys! If it’s not in the budget, you can still do 4 interest-free payments of $3.09 for 4 months!)
Normal list price: $149.99
Current sale price: $119.48
The Elgato Stream Deck is honestly a command center for your computer. If there’s one item on this list that I hope Santa brings me this holiday season, it’s this. We all know what this is but let’s briefly go over it for the noobs out there. The Stream Deck allows you to customize buttons that instantly trigger unlimited actions with a tap. Changing your stream scene in OBS, sound alerts, camera changes, custom hotkeys, or anything your heart desires, besides me ;)
The stream deck isn’t just limited to OBS actions either, it can be customized for basically any program that has key or mouse commands. This thing will change how you use your computer and make it so much faster while doing so.
Every gamer deserves a lil something special this holiday season, so don’t forget to treat a friend, or treat yourself. Be sure to check back in for more gaming deals to come early 2023 as there are many upcoming games the Vyrus crew is highly anticipating!
What are you hoping to get for Christmas this year, gamer? 🎄🎮
