Spoiler alert: Your glorious return to office life probably won’t happen anytime soon.
Even as some states gingerly lift their stay-at-home orders, “much of corporate America is in no rush to return employees to their campuses and skyscrapers,” The New York Times reports. Capital One has reportedly told tens of thousands of its employees they’ll be home at least through Labor Day, and Amazon’s work-from-home order has been extended until October. Meanwhile, both Google and Facebook have told their workers they don’t have to come into the office until *next year*. (Lordt, 2021 seems so far away.)
If you haven’t already, it’s safe to say you can go ahead and build out your work-from-home setup. We really like Dell’s Alienware line for gaming gear, but its premium headsets, keyboards, and mice can also do double duty as responsive and dependable WFH accessories. Here are a few that are on sale:
This lightweight, completely wireless headset boasts some seriously impressive audio quality for its size: With Alienware 7.1 Virtual Surround Sound and hi-fidelity 40mm neodymium drivers for oomph-y bass, your morning Zoom meetings have never sounded better. It’s also got adjustable, breathable ear cushions and a battery life of up to 15 hours on a single charge, making it totally suitable for all-day use.
It normally retails for $229.99, but Dell has it on sale for just $159.99 (a $70 savings) with free shipping in one business day to boot.
Featuring 15 programmable macro key functions, onboard memory, and over a dozen RGB lighting zones, the mechanical gaming keyboard included in this bundle has what people in the biz call “brown switches.” (Basically, that means the mechanisms underneath its keys are quiet and springy.) For its part, the mouse has a 12,000 DPI optical sensor and matching RGB accents.
You can buy both items together for just $139.99 (a savings of nearly $65), or snag them on sale individually:
