Choosing the best gaming headset for you
First, choose between wired and wireless. Wired headsets don’t need to be recharged obviously, and plug directly into your controller. That said, they will put extra drain on your controller battery, since that’s what it will use for power. Wireless headsets sometimes offer better versatility, and free you from having extra cables all over the place. Some of the best Xbox One wireless headsets also come with a Bluetooth option, which lets you connect them up to a phone or a PC without a cable. Some even let you connect to Xbox and Bluetooth simultaneously for superior sound mixing.
The cheaper headsets will be lighter on your wallet, but you usually take a hit in build and sound quality. For a decent experience overall you’ll probably want to start at around $80 RRP for a wired headset, such as the HyperX CloudX headset. Thanks to Prime Day, the CloudX is enjoying a big saving. If you want to grab something higher-end, the Razer BlackShark V2 Pro for PC is probably the best deal on the list right now.
