Best 2017 XBox One Gaming Headsets
Xbox One, according to Microsoft, was the bestselling console for the second half of 2016. With Project Scorpio in the pipeline, Microsoft is aiming to bring in their A-game. But for the right gaming experience, you need the right accessories. If you haven’t checked out the best PS4 accessories yet, go check them out now. This post is all about the best and coolest 2017 Xbox Gaming headsets in the market right now. These have been handpicked from a whole lot of other headsets and they offer stellar audio quality for an immersive experience.
SADES SA-807 Gaming Headset
I have arranged these gaming headsets in the increasing order of their price. The SADES SA-807 gaming headset comes for just over $20. It is the least expensive gaming headset with the most positive reviews on Amazon. The neon green color on the black headset takes the glamor quotient to a high. It is compatible with the Xbox One but also works with the PS4, PC and any other device that supports a 3.5mm jack. The build quality could’ve been improved but there is little you can complain about something that comes for just a bit over $20.
Turtle Beach – Recon 50X White Stereo Gaming Headset
This one uses neon green along with white and it looks dope. The foam is black and it looks super premium. If you are a fan of white gaming headsets, then this is the one for you. The Recon 50X is available for just under $40 and has top notch speakers and a very sensitive mic. It supports the Xbox One, PS4, PC and devices with a 3.5mm port.
Xbox One Stereo Headset
If simplicity is your chief concern, then the Xbox One stereo headset from Microsoft will impress you. It uses a combination of matte black and glossy black on it which looks classy. The fabric ear cups are designed to fit over your ears and are extremely comfortable. Another great thing about it is that it is extremely light. Apart from the high-quality audio for gaming, you also get crisp and clear chat audio. These can be adjusted to independent game and chat audio levels. Overall, it is one of the coolest Xbox One gaming headsets from the house of Microsoft themselves.
HyperX Cloud Stinger Gaming Headset
HyperX would be a familiar name for PC gamers with their high-performance RAM modules. I, myself, own a PC with 8 gigs of HyperX Fury RAM. Coming from a reputed brand like Kingston, you expect only top-notch quality. And Kingston has delivered just that. My favorite part of the whole gaming headset is the HyperX logo. It is done in red and really stands out. They’ve made use of their signature memory foam for the ear cups which perfectly fits all ear types.
Turtle Beach – Ear Force XO One Amplified Gaming Headset
Turtle Beach has a huge collection of gaming headsets and I’ve picked two of my favorites for this list. The Ear Force XO One uses 50mm speakers for crisp and high-quality audio. One thing that I liked about this headset is the placement of foam at the top portion where your head rests. Some headsets have complete foam padding and some have none. This is a thoughtful inclusion which allows for long hours of gaming.
SteelSeries Arctis 3 Gaming Headset
The Arctis 3 is more of a premium offering on this list from SteelSeries. It comes with a lot of premium features which includes a perfectly contoured Ski Goggle suspension band, AirWeave ear cushions made using fabric inspired from athletic clothing and their SteelSeries Engine 3 for personalizing audio profiles and surround sound settings. The Arctis 3 is made from extremely durable plastic and not steel. But if you’re willing to pay more, you can go for the Arctis 7 which is made of lightweight steel alloy.
Razer Kraken Pro Analog Gaming Headset
Razer is probably the most famous brand when it comes to gaming gear. They have some of the best cases, keyboards, gaming mouse and gaming laptops. They produce some stellar gaming headsets too. The Kraken Pro is an example of one such headset. It is available in five different colors but my favorite is the green variant. It stands out and is flashy, just what I love. There are also 2 variants – one with 40mm speakers and a second variant with 50mm speakers.
ASTRO Gaming A40 TR Gaming Headset
The last one on the list for the best Xbox One gaming headsets is also the most expensive at $150. The A40 TR gaming headset from ASTRO looks almighty. The foam pads and the overall construction is top-notch and made using premium materials. This headset is not meant for casual gamers and is for the hardcore pro gamers and audio engineers. If you want more reasons to get yourself one, how about these. The A40 TR is the official equipment for Call of Duty: Black Ops III, has support for Dolby 7.1 and also has a removable/swappable mic. What more can you ask for in a gaming headset?
