If I had to recommend just one product from this list, it would be the impeccable Turtle Beach Elite Atlas, which has some of the best design and construction work across the entire industry right now, with sound quality to match. The large speakers are packed with airy memory foam, which stays quite cool on the ears and has a channel for glasses. The robust aluminum headband and generally all-around quality construction ensure longevity. This headset won't disappoint.

However, the HyperX range in this price tier is also incredibly robust and is often something I generally recommend across the board. The HyperX Cloud Alpha and the HyperX Cloud II are both incredible headsets, notable for their lightweight, high-quality construction and big sound. The HyperX headsets punch far above their weight when it comes to audio and come with a premium-feeling quality that defies the $50-$100 price bracket. This is a headset well worthy of your attention.

Finally, I would highly recommend the LucidSound LS10X as well. LucidSound is a company that never compromises audio quality, and the streamlined aesthetic may be more appealing to those who want something a little less "gamer"-looking. The LS10X offers a good sound profile with decent construction. I previously criticized the headset for feeling a little expensive, but LucidSound has since dropped the price to $50, which feels a lot fairer.

It's also worth noting that soon, Microsoft itself will be selling an official Xbox Wireless Headset for $99. This headset boasts some seriously impressive features, and if Microsoft delivers on its claims, we expect it to easily make this list in the near future. If you want to push your budget a bit further than $99, you could also take a look at our best Xbox Series X, Series S headsets and best Xbox One headset articles.
