The Dell Alienware Wireless Gaming Headset features a lightweight, ergonomic design complete with AlienFX RGB lighting. Its ear cushions are breathable and rotate to best accommodate your head while an extendable boom mic folds down when you need it. Its connectivity options include both 3.5mm wired and 2.4 GHz wireless (via the included USB Type-A adapter). When you’re mid-game and alt-tabbing isn’t an option, you can easily adjust its settings via integrated buttons. These options include Game/Chat volume mixer, Mic Mute, Volume, and Audio Preset.

AlienFX RGB Lighting

AlienFX RGB lighting offers users 16.8 million colors and a variety of lighting effects to choose from to personalize their setup. Download the Alienware Command Center software to access these settings.

Wired or Wireless Connectivity

The Alienware AW988 connects to your system via the wired 3.5mm cable. An included USB Type-A adapter will let you connect to your PC wirelessly. The wireless adapter even has a dedicated slot in the headset, so you can keep everything together.

All-Day Battery

The built-in 1200mAh lithium-ion battery is rated for up to 14 hours of use. If you opt to keep its RGB lighting on, its battery life drops down to around 8.7 hours.


Customize your lighting: 16.8M RGB lighting with two zones and AlienFX allow personalized in-game lighting and looks, so your games and accessories reflect your style. Program effects, colors, brightness, tempo and custom animations on over 150 supported games. You also have the ability to create and download unique themes.

Unlock the full features of your headset, download the Alienware Command Center. Compatible with Windows 10 R3 or later.

Mindfully made: We designed our gaming headset both strong and lightweight with ultra-premium materials for maximum comfort and stylish wearability. With a well-made headband, comfortable ear cushions with moisture-wicking fabric and easy-access controls, you can game for hours and look good doing it.


Don’t miss a beat: Your headphones take you deep into the game with sophisticated sound technology. Expect polished, professional in-game sounds with Alienware 7.1 Virtual Surround Sound and a clear, broad acoustic signature. Hi-fidelity 40mm neodymium drivers round out the deep, rich bass and expansive soundscape for an unparalleled gaming experience.

Amplify the action: Multiplayer games demand crystal-clear communication. Make sure your entire team hears every directive and every battle cry with the enhanced, uni-directional, noise-canceling mic with natural voice communication.

Game all day (or night)

Built with a lightweight, comfortable design, the Alienware Wireless Gaming Headset is specifically crafted to let you game for hours with ease. Your breathable ear cushions rotate to fit just how you want them and the microphone has an extendable boom mic that lets you tuck it up and out of the way when you’re gaming solo.

Ditch the cables. Get into the game.

High-performance wireless means you clear your game space of cables. Equipped with lag-free 2.4Gz wireless and a 40-foot range, your headset lets you stay connected, even during snack breaks.

Long live your battery

Your headset has up to 15 hours of wireless gameplay per charge. And when there’s no need for wireless, just plug into the 3.5mm audio port—or pair with your mobile phone or gaming console—until your next marathon session.
