Hold on there, skipper.

If you’re serious about getting the absolute greatest value on headsets, read this detailed list and let us help you decide which set is best for you.


1. Xbox One Stereo Headset

If you’re looking for a cheaper product with awesome features, the standard Xbox One stereo headset might be the perfect fit for you. With a solid over-the-ear design, the headset is comfortable and stylish. It’s nearly wireless, too, considering the only cable required runs from the headset to the controller in your hands. The headset plays game audio as well, bringing immersive game audio straight to your ears. A detachable volume mixer allows you easily adjust audio levels on the fly.

Price: $44.82 (25 percent off MSRP)

2. Turtle Beach Ear Force XO Seven Premium Xbox One Gaming Headset

These Turtle Beach headphones do much of the same things as the standard Xbox One headset listed above, only better (hence the higher price). But when you buy a Turtle Beach headset, you’re paying for quality, which is why the company makes the best-selling gaming headsets available. With the XO Seven Premiums, you get awesome in-game audio, a noise-canceling mic, comfortable over-the-ear cushions that eliminate distracting noise, and the ability to customize the headset’s plates for a look all your own.

Price: $114.64 (28 percent off MSRP)

3. Turtle Beach Ear Force XO One Amplified Stereo Gaming Headset

If you don’t have the cash to shell out for the $100 XO Sevens, the XO Ones might be a good alternative. At nearly half the price, you’re still getting Turtle Beach quality, though the design and comfort aren’t as intuitive. Still, it has features the XO Sevens do not, including the ability to hear yourself talk and the option to boost audio bass for a deep sound, and those two features might be enough to make them more valuable than the XO Sevens. Plus, this headset works with mobile devices.

Price: $64.79 (19 percent off MSRP)

Buy the Turtle Beach Ear Force XO One Amplified Stereo Gaming Headset here.


Pros:

  • Bass boost
  • Mic monitoring
  • Work with mobile devices
  • Text here

Cons:

  • Headset kind of small
  • No surround sound
  • Reportedly quiet
  • Cord a bit short when using with mobile devices

4. Turtle Beach Ear Force XO Four High Performance Xbox One Gaming Headset

The Ear Force XO Four headset acts as a middle ground between the pricey XO Sevens and the cheaper XO Ones. Even though this set lacks the bass boosting option, you won’t need it, considering the XO Fours provide superior, louder gaming audio. Rather disappointing is that this headset doesn’t feature mic monitoring, but if you’re primarily using these to hear your game better rather than talk online, there’s still plenty of value to be found.

Price: $80.96 (19 percent off MSRP)

Pros:

  • Can hear game and chat audio
  • Cord only from headset to controller
  • Quality isn’t as great as XO Sevens
  • Simulated surround sound

Cons:

  • No mic monitoring
  • No bass boost
  • Reportedly uncomfortable around big heads
  • Not true surround sound

If money isn’t an issue, the ASTRO Gaming A50 Xbox One headset may be for you. For starters, the headset is completely wireless. It uses 5.8 GHz wireless technology to deliver clear audio straight to the headset with no interference. The A50 is huge and comfortable for any sized cranium, and the battery lasts several hours before requiring a recharge. The mic is on the quiet side, but if that doesn’t bother you, this headset provides excellent value.

Here’s another headset in the expensive range, but again, with Turtle Beaches, you’re getting what you pay for. True to their name, the Stealth 500X Premiums are completely wireless and provide up to 15 hours of gameplay before requiring a recharge. Many users reported that this headset is too quiet, even at max volume, and others stated that the audio quality isn’t worth the price, but the Stealth 500X Premiums are user-friendly, free of wires and great for single- and multiplayer gaming alike.

Price: $229.95

The TRITTON Kunai headset might provide the best value if you’re looking for a great price-to-quality ratio. At only $80, you’d expect this set to miss standard features (there’s no mic monitoring), but really, it provides great audio quality whether you’re playing your Xbox One, talking to your mom on the phone or listening to music on your laptop.

At first glance, this headset looks just like the Turtle Beach Ear Force XO Seven headset listed above. There are key differences between the products, though. One is that this headset comes with Superhuman Hearing, which allows you to “pinpoint quiet audio cues like enemy footsteps and weapon reloads.” It also comes with volume presets to customize your game sound and mic sensitivity. It’s up to you to decide if these extra features are worth another $40.

Price: $159.95

While not as popular as Turtle Beaches, TRITTONs or ASTROs, these PDP Afterglow Karga headphones are loved by those who buy them. It has the standard features, like the ability to work with phone and tablets, a noise-canceling mic with audio monitoring and a comfortable design. Some users reported poor audio and mic quality, but overall, the product is solid if you don’t want to break the bank. Plus, that green glow looks pretty cool, am I right?
