Today only, Woot offers the Sennheiser GSX 1000 gaming headphone amp and sound card for $129.99 Premium shipped, with non-Prime members charged a $6 delivery fee. For comparison, Amazon is selling the same amp for $230, and today’s deal marks a new all-time low that we’ve been tracking. This amp is designed to work with your gaming setup to deliver high quality sound to your existing headphones. You can have up to four custom sound settings and use the LED touchscreen to switch between them depending on whether you’re using headphones, speakers, or in various apps. You can also adjust the sidetone in your headphones, choosing how much (if any) of your voice is returned to the headphones. Keep reading to learn more.

Now you can opt for the HyperX Cloud Alpha Gaming Headset with HyperX USB Amp for $101 at Amazon. Although this pair offers both the amp and headphones, instead of just a single amp, it’s not as feature-rich as today’s mainline offering. You won’t have sidetone control or four quick settings to choose from, in particular, in addition to losing the EQ settings offered by Sennheiser.

Remember, for casual listening, Microsoft’s Surface Headphones 2 are currently at a rare discount on $225.50 its normal rate of $250. Sure, the $25 savings doesn’t seem like a lot, but if you consider that these headphones haven’t been on sale at all, you’ll realize just how remarkable this discount is.
