Alienware recently announced that it would be expanding its gaming lineup with a whole new lineup of gaming peripherals and accessories. That list includes the a couple of gaming headsets, keyboards, and a gaming mouse.

In addition, the earcups are also equipped with soft memory foam, wrapped in a breathable fabric that the brand promises to provide plenty of resting space around the ears.
The Alienware AW520H also features a retractable boom microphone, and is even equipped with the brand’s AlienFX RGB LED that syncs with the self-styled Alienware Command Centre. Connectivity-wise, the headphones connects to a PC via USB port by default, but they do come with a 3.5mm adapter, should you wish to connect them to other compatible devices or gaming consoles. In terms of availability, the AW520H will be available in North America and China from 14 April onwards, while the rest of the world can expect it from 19 May onwards.
Moving on to the Alienware AW720H, this headset is like the AW520H, the major difference between the two is that this model is completely wireless. Connectivity for this headset is done via the 2.4GHz USB-C wireless dongle. In terms of battery life, you’re looking at up to 30 hours of continuous usage from a full charge.
In terms of availability, the AW720H has already been available in China since 17 February but will be available in North America from 2 March onwards and 31 March for the rest of the world.

In terms of availability, there’s no word on the latter, but the full-sized wireless keyboard will be available starting from 14 April in North America and China, while the rest of the world gets it from 19 May onwards.
Finally, there’s the Alienware AW620M wireless gaming mouse. Described officially as a sculpted right-handed mouse, the brand says that the shape of this full-sized gaming mouse even features a dedicated thumb channel, which it says makes it ideal for RTS, RPG, and even MMO games.
