The countdown to Christmas is in full gear and it's feeling frugal yet festive today. We started the week with laptop deals, then made our way to lifestyle essentials and today, the focus is gaming!

One of my favorite anchors, John Anderson, made the request for a gaming headset on-air yesterday and he echoes the sentiments of countless other parents, grandparents and gamers.

My favorite universally-compatible gaming headset works with virtually any console, phone, laptop or PC. The top-rated CXCase 2017 headsets feature an omni-directional microphone and superb noise cancelation. It's as great for gaming as it is for voice calls, interactive chats, Skype and Facetime.
