The ergonomic design means this wearable speaker can sit comfortably on your shoulders, without feeling heavy. Since there’s a built-in mic, you’ll also be able to chat in-game with your teammates, and the brand says the mic is smart enough to tune out ambient noise. There are six dedicated sound modes as well, including stereo, cinema, music and three gaming sound modes.

The three gaming sound modes are perfect for the Final Fantasy version of this neck-set, with a dedicated role-playing game mode, optimized for FINAL FANTASY(R) XIV Online to give you as much of an immersive experience as possible. The four speakers embedded in this audio set are all designed to deliver surround sound, with clear, sharp audio that will almost make it feel like you’re wearing noise cancelling gaming headphones.

This neck speaker is wired though, which means you’ll need to have it connected via its USB cable always, but since it’s about 10 feet long, you won’t have to tug it or readjust it once it’s on. Plus, the original version and Final Fantasy version of this neck speaker are on sale right now, with prices starting at just $148.

There’s no telling when these gaming deals expire though, so if you’re looking for an ergonomic audio device made specifically for gaming, choose the Panasonic SoundSlayer Wearable Speaker System — take advantage of the limited-time deal before time runs out.
