Headphone manufacturer JLab just launched its stylish new Nightfall wired gaming headset. The headset sports a sleek design, comes with features like a quick-mute mic and 3D spatial audio support, and works with a wide range of devices. Best of all, it costs just $40. You can grab the Jlab Nightfall wired gaming headset at the links below.
The JLab Nightfall features a suspended headband design similar to one of our favorite headset lines, the SteelSeries’ Arctis Nova series. The Nighfall’s headband is adjustable and reversible, with a multi-colored rainbow gradient on one side, and plain black on the other. Both go well with the rest of the headset’s matte black look.
As for the internal hardware, there is a 50mm driver in each of the over-ear cushioned earcups, and it sports a rotating near-field directional mic that can be quick-muted by simply flipping it up (aligns flush against the earcup). While there’s no active noise canceling, that’s not a surprising omission for a $40 headset, and the over-ear design will offer at least some passive noise isolation. On the plus side, it uses a single 3.5mm input, so you can use the headset on PS4/5, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, smartphone, PC, or anything else with an aux audio port.
The JLab Nightfall wired gaming headset is available now for $40 at JLab’s online store.
The Nightfall looks to be a solid entry-level headset choice, but for those looking to splurge on a higher-end model, SteelSeries is also launching a new Arctis Nova 7 model in honor of the Lunar New Year. You can also check our roundup of the best gaming headsets for even more recommendations.
