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 a few easy rules of thumb you can follow while looking for the best deals this Amazon Prime Day. Most of the best Xbox One headsets also work on Xbox Series X/S as well. You could take a look at our roundups of the best Xbox Series X, Series S headsets for other potential Prime Day deals.
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.
