However, because of its price tag, gamers are looking for other options that can provide a better gaming experience without breaking the bank. 

The Haymaker Difference


The Haymaker is slightly more affordable than the SteelSeries Acrtis Nova Pro. But considering the number of features it has, it’s a more attractive option.

Surround Sound by DIRAC

The Haymaker is the only headphone custom-tuned by DIRAC, a well-known company offering digital sound solutions. Its premium 7.1 surround sound adds to the overall listening and viewing experience.

Active Noise Cancellation Feature Works
Perfectly While Plugged In

One unique advantage of The Haymaker is the ability to use active noise canceling even while the headset is plugged in via an auxiliary cord or a PC controller. Typically, headphones lose this capability when plugged in, requiring users to rely on battery power for the noise-canceling feature. The Haymaker breaks from this trend, offering 30 hours of active noise canceling while plugged in, making it a versatile choice for users who prefer or require a wired connection. This feature sets it apart from competitors, which generally do not support active noise canceling in wired mode.
