If you're looking for high-value wireless, grab the SteelSeries Arctis 1 headset. It won't blow your mind, but it's arguably the best wireless PC headset option on the market right now, with its decent build quality and solid sound. Sadly, this version is only compatible with PC and PS4 for wirelessness, but you can add a 3.5mm cable to get Xbox compatibility too.
Choosing the best gaming headset for you
There are dozens upon dozens of great Xbox headsets out there, so choosing the best Xbox One headset for you can be a daunting task at times. Ultimately, researching the sound profiles and features of each headset will yield the best results, but there are few easy rules of thumb you can follow while looking for the best deals this Amazon Prime Day.
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 over all you'll probably want to start at around $80 for a wired headset, such as the HyperX CloudX headset, and around $150 for a wireless headset, like the LucidSound LS35X or the SteelSeries Arctis 7X.
