The best Xbox One games offer fast, fluid gameplay and stunning graphics but, for many gamers, the best games really come to life through an Xbox One headset. For one thing, headsets deliver immersive audio that really helps to transport you to the heart of the action. But that’s not all; if you enjoy gaming with friends, a gaming headset can enhance the social dimension, ensuring you’re heard loud and clear by your opponent next time you smash a screamer into the top corner or take them out with a precise sniper shot.
Our huge collection of Xbox One gaming headsets feature the latest models from top gaming equipment brands like Razer, Turtle Beach and Logitech and showcases an array of performance and entertainment enhancing features. You’ll find an extensive choice of wireless gaming headsets for the Xbox One, which makes sense – wireless gaming frees you up from irritating cables, allowing for more specular celebrations!
Comfort is another important consideration, especially if you’re embarking on marathon gaming sesh. Luckily, our Xbox One headsets are designed to be worn for long periods and tend to be lightweight, ergonomically designed and adjustable.
Clearly, audio performance is also all-important. You want an Xbox One headset that delivers impeccable clarity through the speakers and the microphone, ensuring you can chat with your teammates as though they’re sat right next to you. For crystal-clear audio we recommend a headset with noise-cancelling microphones – offered by HyperX and SteelSeries among others - that will reduce background noise and isolate your voice. Let the banter commence.
Immersive virtual surround sound. Hearing every tiny detail. This undoubtedly gives you the edge during your gameplay – so make sure your Xbox One headset lives up to your expectations. You won’t miss a single footstep or reload.
Connection type is one of the first decisions you’ll want to make. For most choice, opt for a jack. But you’ll also find USB connectivity as an option and, of course, Bluetooth or WiFi in an Xbox One wireless headset. Whether Forza racing or Halo missions are your style, you’ll be totally in the zone.
Regardless of whether you’re going for an Xbox wireless headset or wired number, you’ll want to zoom in on comfort next. Those with cushioned headbands and memory foam earcups help make marathon sessions all the more manageable. Also consider how you like to access your settings. Many have controls on the earcup, for example, like select models in the ASUS and SteelSeries headset ranges.
