Best Headphones for Xbox One

Best Headphones for Xbox One

Purposed to create a world of yours - where you're free of the undesired sounds of day-to-day life - at the touch of a button, is what every noise-canceling headphone oughts to do. While a lot of them do just that, they might not sound as extraordinary as the Sony WH-1000XM3 headphones we recommend. Or it might not be as voguish as the well-performing elegant Bose 700.

I got the DT-770 Pro as a support for mixing, because unfortunately I do not currently have the opportunity to edit my room acoustically for my studio monitors. So now I use the speakers for the regular work, while I use the headphones for the delicate places where I have to work very accurately. To anticipate it: For this purpose, the headphones work great for me!

It was particularly important to me that the entire spectrum is reproduced as unadulterated as possible so that I can make the most accurate decisions, especially in the bass range. The headphones deliver this without any problems.

We've compiled a List of Best Noise-Cancelling Headphones in 2020

Whether the advertised transmission range of 5 – 35000 Hz is maintained, I can not say, I don’t think any human could hear past 20000 Hz; however, all frequencies that are heard for me are played back and it goes damn deep!

​Audeze, one of the most prestigious brands of high-end hi-fi headphones, dived in March 2018 into the gaming industry with a new top-tier gaming headset for high-caliber players. The event was of enormous surprise and truly intriguing; Not only because of the blending of an elitist brand like Audeze with the medium of gaming, but also for the expectations which had arisen by the upcoming of an alluring pair of gaming headsets and the unreal promises they’ve made.

Ergonomics

It doesn’t take long to realize the majesty of Audeze Mobius sound once donning them on your ears. As one of the best gaming headset, the audio quality is the second most intriguing aspect after the immersive soundscape generated by the planar magnetic drivers and Waves Nx technology for 3D audio immersiveness.

Not only does the 100mm planar magnetic drivers emulate the most authentic immersive cinematic experiences, they also achieve an admirable level of precision and responsiveness. The complexity of the captivating, imacculate surround sound with the dramatic and vivid sounds filled with details make it almost impossible to take them off your head. The experience is truly addictive.

SteelSeries ARCTIS 9X

Best Bluetooth Gaming Headsets for Xbox

Why we like it: The SteelSeries Arctis 9X is one of the best gaming headsets in terms of comfort. The other points are not to be outdone either, between Bluetooth connection, a good microphone, and quality sound, would it definitely have everything to please?

SteelSeries still wanted to keep the aesthetic aspect of its Arctis range, and it is no worse. We find there a very discreet helmet, almost all in black, with a mat on the ear cups and steel at the level of the headband. This one is very robust and is surrounded by an adjustable elastic headband, to adapt to all heads. The manufacturer claims 20 hours of operation. The figure is fair: at medium volume when connecting via Bluetooth, the headphones operated in the region of 18-19 hours.

The headphones have very high-quality sound, capable of not only delivering powerful bass but also providing excellent detail across the entire frequency spectrum. And there is also a built-in equalizer with the ability to adjust the sound for yourself.

Verdict

Arctis 9X is designed specifically for the Xbox One and connects to the console as a controller via Xbox Connect. The same technology works with computers on Windows, but only with the help of a special receiver, which is sold separately. So, if your main platform is Xbox One, then it is worth considering buying this headset.

Their range of products includes: controllers, mice, gaming headsets, gaming chairs, accessories, and the RIG models.

Why we like it: The Plantronics RIG 800 LX Dolby Atmos® headphones for Xbox One were awarded “Innovation Award” by CES 2018 in the gaming category. Even today, the RIG 800LX is one of the best Xbox One headsets available on the market right now, and perhaps the best budget gaming headset for Xbox console.

Gaming headsets from Plantronics has always distinguished by high sound quality at a low cost, and the RIG 800XL is no exception. The brand, therefore, remains faithful to a certain audio signature, characterized by round and pleasant low frequencies, and precise treble. Whether in terms of autonomy or range, Plantronics has never disappointed, and it is not with the RIG 800 that this will change.

HyperX CloudX Flight

Best Mid-End Xbox One Bluetooth Gaming Headphones

Why we like it: HyperX Cloud Flight stands out not only for its proprietary design but also for the phenomenal 30-hour run time without recharging, sound quality, and range!

HyperX could offer digital 5.1 in the DTS or Dolby Digital standard. The high price for a 50mm driver became clear when I started listening to music. Unlike devices from the bottom shelf, HyperX Cloud Flight offers excellent bandwidth separation. High tones do not cause so-called flicker.

The design is based on an aluminum plate. All other elements are made of matte plastic. Faux leather is used for earpads and headband. The pads offer a soft and relatively airy touch, although we have known more airy in the category of closed gaming headsets.

The headphones themselves are very lightweight, only 286 grams without a microphone and cable. HyperX Cloud Flight is supported by the proprietary HyperX NGenuity Software application in which you can adjust the volume of the headphones and microphone and track the battery life.

HyperX Cloud Flight delivers high-quality sound in games and movies. Good, albeit imperfect. In films, the dynamics are very well emphasized: explosions, shootings. Unfortunately, the sub-bass is, on the contrary, almost nonexistent.

Key Features

  • Extremely complex and versatile
  • Accurate 3D audio imaging
  • Resourceful sound spectrum with excellent bass and crystal clear sound
  • Fairly precise detatchable microphone

Creative Soundblaster H6

Best Budget Xbox One Gaming Headphones

Why we like it: The H6 is packed with features, some of which are rare among other headsets in this price range. The best of these are the built-in EQ sound profiles, which bring wider sound to your console – without the need for software or an external physical amplifier.

With clear treble and mids, sufficient bass, and built-in equalization options, the sound quality is absolutely admirable for PS4 owners. The fullest and most customizable experience of the H6 is found on the PC using Creative’s easy-to-use Sound Blaster Connect software.

The comfort level of the H6 is very good overall and has a leatherette finish on particularly soft foams. Obviously, because the ears are perfectly encompassed, the insulation that results is good.

Naturally, the virtual multi-channel sound scheme 7.1 is mentioned. The sound here is more natural, which is good for listening to music, but – these headphones are not bought to play your favorite tracks.

Verdict

The headphones have a pronounced bass, and in some MOBA games, FPS or racing sims, the user will get a good deep sound. The voices are quite lively, explosions, gunfights, environmental noises – everything sounds very natural. However, when it comes to music, there are problems.

Key Features

  • Extremely complex and versatile
  • Accurate 3D audio imaging
  • Resourceful sound spectrum with excellent bass and crystal clear sound
  • Fairly precise detatchable microphone
