If you’ve bagged a new console, or are still chasing Xbox Series X stock, a contender for best gaming headset for Xbox Series X is an easy and very worthwhile upgrade to your kit. We’d very much argue that if you’re looking to kit out your setup before getting your hands on the console, a top Xbox Series X headset is still a great move in preparation – plus many will still work with Xbox One consoles, too, so will cover you for your inter-generation period. 

Be you single-player or multiplayer-focused, the best Xbox Series X headset will sweep you into adventures like never before, hearing detail in soundscapes that even speakers on the best gaming TVs and best TVs for Xbox Series X just aren’t able to deliver; for those that do play shooters online, expect to hear footsteps and directional cues to help you get the jump on foes no matter the arena.

Thankfully, because of Microsoft’s backward compatibility pledge, many of the best Xbox One headsets also work on Xbox Series X, which means your search for one of the best gaming headsets for Xbox Series X is quite broad and varied.

How do you know if the device you’ve got your eye on will work with Series X? Simply put, if your headset has an audio jack or USB connection, you’ll be set. Yes, you can bet on there being newer and fancier models coming soon that will take advantage of the Xbox Series X and S tech.

1. Microsoft Xbox Wireless Headset

If it’s in stock, this is the best value Xbox Series X headset

Specifications

Acoustic Design: Closed back, over ear

Drivers: 40mm

Weight: 310g

Compatibility: Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One

Reasons to buy

+

Bass and surround sound excel

+

Excellent value for money

+

Multiplayer mic is nice and clear

Reasons to avoid

Mic monitoring is a little weak

It’s a bit small for larger heads

Often sells out

The official Microsoft Xbox Wireless Headset offers exceptional value with its low $99/£89 pricetag and has spent most of its existence sold out since launch. Quite simply, we can’t find a better wireless contender for best gaming headset for Xbox Series X for such a low price.

Microsoft’s model is super comfortable, although it’s a bit on the small side if you have a larger head. The soundscape is so good we use it over our middling TVs’ audio even when we have the place to ourselves. The bass is powerful despite only using 40mm drivers and the surround sound is way better than it should be for a headset this cheap. We love that the outside of the earcups rotate to adjust volume and game/chat balance too. 

The mic is nice and crisp and can be tucked away around the earcup when not in use. Chat clarity and the extremely stable wireless connection to your Xbox puts a lot of Razer’s more expensive headsets to shame and is giving Turtle Beach something to sweat over too.

2. SteelSeries Arctis 7X Wireless

An incredible gaming headset that works on all platforms

Specifications

Acoustic design: Closed Back

Drivers: 40mm

Weight: 12.4oz (352g)

Compatibility: Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, PS5, PS4, PC, Switch, Android

Reasons to buy

+

Comfortable for long sessions

+

Great audio across the range

+

Decent mic

Reasons to avoid

Slightly lacking in bass

Sells out regularly

The SteelSeries 7X wireless gaming headset is a fantastic performer and is the best Xbox Series X headset we can recommend to all our friends. It’s incredibly comfortable with soft padding around the cups that remain cool for hours and an elasticated band across the crown that feels light with no pinching. We’re big fans of the 24-hour battery and that wireless signal is consistently reliable with zero dropouts during our testing.

The 40mm drivers might lack in bass a little compared to some of the 50mm efforts from the likes of Corsair and Razer, but overall we were more impressed with the audio quality across the range with a rich soundscape and the bass managed to maintain detail that some headsets often lose in favor of general, muddy loudness. 

The mic quality is solid for multiplayer use and retracts into the headset itself when not needed – though even if you want to play without it hovering in front of your face it still does a decent job of picking you up in its retracted position. Volume controls and game/chat balance dials are easy to access without looking too.

The SteelSeries Arctis 7X is marketed as a Series X headset, but it’s actually one of the best buys for a true multiplatform headset thanks to the USB-C dongle (there’s a USB-A adapter too) which can be plugged into PS5, PC, Switch, and Android mobiles.

3. Turtle Beach Stealth 700 Gen 2

A superb and confirmed-wireless Turtle Beach option

Specifications

Acoustic design: Closed Back, over ear

Drivers: 50mm Nanoclear

Weight: 382g

Compatibility: PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PC

Reasons to buy

+

Doubles battery life from the previous generation

+

Incredibly comfortable 

+

Great microphone accuracy

Reasons to avoid

Might be a tight fit for some

Revamping the Stealth 700 for Xbox Series X, this significantly upgraded variant – coined ‘Gen 2’ – is a substantial upgrade on its predecessor and well worth the price of admission. In fact, the Turtle Beach Stealth 700 Gen 2 could claim the top spot in time.

First up, and importantly, the redesign means that they will work wirelessly with the Xbox Series X without a dongle – they’ll connect directly to the console. This is a big plus. 

The redesign upgrades the aesthetic too, with a subtle finish, and a flip-to-mute mic that folds neatly into the earcup. At the same time, the buttons have been reorganized and moved to just one earcup and are well sized and spaced out. This revamped design makes the headset incredibly comfortable, with supple memory foam cushions with Aerofit cooling gel being a highlight, ensuring you can wear them for hours at a time with no aches or pains. 

However, the proof is in the pudding and the Stealth 700 Gen 2 headset sounds excellent. Its large drivers give you some great all-around sound, and the ability to fine-tune the audio to your liking with the Audio Hub adds depth to the possible soundscapes. The Superhuman Hearing feature is a worthy inclusion as well, and it can give you the edge in online shooters. At the other end of the scale, the bass boost can provide some serious rumble during a heart-pumping campaign mission. 

A great headset that’ll cover you for both Xbox One or Xbox Series X, and a super competitor for the best gaming headset for Xbox Series X you can buy.

4. Corsair HS75 XB Wireless

Positional audio and a great mic are ideal for multiplayer

Specifications

Acoustic design: Closed Back

Drivers: 50mm

Weight: 13.2oz (374g)

Compatibility: Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One

Reasons to buy

+

A quality mic

+

Great audio with big bass

+

Comes with premium Dolby Atmos app

Reasons to avoid

Quite big

Pretty expensive

The Corsair HS75 XB Wireless is a ‘designed for Xbox’ product and has quickly become one of our favourites in the race to be best gaming headset for Xbox Series X. First, unlike other dongle-free Xbox Series X headsets, the connection here is super smooth with no audio signal dropouts. A booming pair of 50mm drivers see the headset excel at the most enthusiastic of battles and you’ll enjoy 20 hours of action between battery charges.  

Premium audio enthusiasts will be keen to hear this headset comes with free access to the Dolby Atmos app on Xbox (usually $15/£15), complete with audio presets for gaming, movies, and music, and access to equalizer settings, which is especially handy as we found we wanted to adjust the treble down a touch as it was a tad piercing on a few occasions. Not many games support full-on Dolby Atmos audio yet, but the app’s settings are worth experimenting with for any game, especially as you can switch on positional audio, offering a potential edge in online shooters.

If you enjoy online gaming, then Corsair’s mic makes this a superb gaming headset for multiplayer. Not only is it super clear, but it offers some of the best mic isolation around, doing a great job at cutting down on background noise around you.

The build and design quality goes some way to justify the high cost with the brushed metal earcup yokes feeling like they’ll protect the headset from any drops – on their sides at least – while looking good too. Leatherette coverings around the headband and cups, along with soft padding, make the HS75 XB a comfortable wear. They do feel quite large though, even on the smaller band settings it was quite a loose fit, especially over the ears – but then again this helped our ears stay cool and we weren’t planning on taking them out for a run.

5. SteelSeries Arctis 9X

The best Xbox One headset is a top new-gen choice too

Specifications

Acoustic design: Closed Back

Cable length: 4.3ft / 1.3m

Drivers: 40mm

Weight: 13 oz

Compatibility: Xbox One, PS4, PC, Switch, Mac, Mobile

Reasons to buy

+

Wireless

+

Superb sound with 3D spacial on Xbox

+

Excellent battery life

Reasons to avoid

It’s expensive

‘Only’ 40mm drivers 

The SteelSeries Arctis 9X is top of our current-gen guide for good reason, and it’s specially engineered to work wirelessly within Xbox’s ecosystem and hardware. It has a wonderfully rich audio experience and impressive battery life in addition to a seamless connection that’s going to continue with the Series X and S console. While the headset comes with 40mm drivers (which are smaller than many similarly priced competitors), they’re well-tuned and deliver audio that punches well above its weight while retaining a nice clarity and richness. It’s a great package for anyone that’s serious about sound and getting the most out of their Xbox games.

The SteelSeries Arctis 9X’s mic is also clear, comes with decent noise-canceling, and is retractable for when you’re not using it. While you can never completely remove that microphone, it’s hidden enough for you to use this headset as an everyday device, connecting to phones and tablets via a Bluetooth connection. That’s a real bonus. You can even plug in via the 3.5mm connection if you want to connect to other consoles or devices – although you lose a number of features like 3D Spatial Sound if you do so.

Finally, the trademark SteelSeries ‘headband’ design offers good levels of comfort. This means you can play for hours without really noticing that you’re wearing the headset (which clocks in at a respectable 1.2 lbs / 372g).

The top Xbox one headset really is one of the very best gaming headsets for Xbox Series X.

6. Razer Kaira Pro

One of the best from one of the best

Specifications

Acoustic design: Closed Back / over ear

Battery life: up to 15 hours

Drivers: 50mm

Weight: 0.73lbs (330g)

Compatibility: Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, mobile

Reasons to buy

+

Fantastic surround sound

+

Adjustable profiles

+

Game/chat balancer

Reasons to avoid

Mic doesn’t impress as much as it should

Because it’s an Xbox Series X headset designed to serve every tier of the Xbox experience, the Razer Kaira Pro puts ease-of-use at the forefront. Powered by wireless and Bluetooth 5.0 connections, it’s flexible and easy to swap between your Series X or your cell phone.

The audio experience doesn’t suffer for it, though. Because the Pro is fitted with Razer Triforce titanium 50mm drivers, you’re getting a wider breadth of sound in the high, mid, and low ranges. Plus, the surround sound that accompanies them is absolutely convincing – it sells a sense of place in a way no TV speaker could.

The addition of downloadable software and an onboard game sound/chat balancer rounds out what is already a tempting package. Indeed, the former allows players to tweak their audio experience to taste or get straight into the action with pre-set profiles.

7. Audeze Penrose X

A premium, high-end contender for best Xbox Series X headset

Specifications

Acoustic design: Over-ear, closed-circumaural

Cable length: Wireless (c.50″ / 127cm aux cable)

Drivers: 100mm Planar Magnetic

Weight: 11.3oz / 320g

Compatibility: Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One , PS4, PS5, Nintendo Switch, PC, Mac, Mobile

Reasons to buy

+

Rich and detailed sound

+

Comfortable over lengthy play sessions

+

Easy to use and tweak game audio and chat volume in the mix

Reasons to avoid

A large price tag

It’s easy to burn through the battery life

Microphone is a bit finicky

The Audeze Penrose X are high-end gaming headphones for those of you looking for the very best build-quality, performance, and versatility. Of course, the device comes with a high-end price tag too, costing just $200 less than your Xbox Series X. Still, you’re going to get a practically unrivaled audio experience out of the Penrose X; deep bass, incredible clarity, and a real depth and detail to the sound that helps to immerse you into your favorite virtual worlds and give you better insight into the action unfolding around you in multiplayer arenas. 

When paired with Dolby Atmos on Xbox Series X, you should expect to find a virtual surround sound offering that will also elevate your favorite movies and TV shows too. The Penrose X doesn’t disappoint, regardless of whether you’re pushing the action in-game or settling in for some of the most audio-intensive media that Hollywood has to offer. The Penrose X is expensive, but it’s also an investment for the future. It’s a premium headphone offering from Audeze that delivers a quality, depth, and density in its sound that few of its peers are able to match, and for that reason, it really is one of the best Xbox Series X headsets you can get.

8. Turtle Beach Recon 500

A refresh for the model ends in great quality and value for XSX

Specifications

Acoustic design: Closed Back, over ear

Drivers: 60mm Eclipse

Weight: c.600g

Compatibility: Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, PS5, PS4, PC, Switch, Mobile

Reasons to buy

+

THAT excellent sound

+

No ‘gamer aesthetic’ flare or design quirks

+

Zero distortion

Reasons to avoid

Nothing special about its construction materials

If you’re after an Xbox Series X headset that’s new, fresh, and from one of the best in the business – and doesn’t cost an arm and leg – then the Recon 500 set could well be for you. 

You won’t find lavish gamer-y design flairs or the most premium construction materials on the Recon 500, then, since Turtle Beach’s latest in the long-running line costs less than $100/£100. What you do find, crucially, is sound so good it takes you aback, and offers an Xbox Series X headset experience that is terrific in quality, and not too hard on the wallet. Savings can also be seen in the headset being a wired variant – which will help to offer flexibility, multi-device compatibility, and a reliable connection, too.

Wood composite injection technology. 60mm drivers. Dedicated woofers and tweeters per earcup. It doesn’t sound like the recipe for crisp, precise sound, and yet it all comes together in a powerful surge of ultra-responsive bass, detailed high end, and a pleasingly flat EQ curve with just a bit of audible kick further down the spectrum. 

So that’s yours. Take it to the bank. But what isn’t coming along for the ride is much in the way of added features – this is a simple wired model with just a mic mute, detachable mic arm, and volume scroll wheel in the way of physical controls. Not one for perennial tweakers then, but for those who enjoy value in their quest for the best gaming headset for Xbox Series X, as well as simplicity, and fundamentally great audio, this is one to really consider.

9. Razer Nari Ultimate for Xbox

Haptic feedback and excellent wireless audio

Specifications

Acoustic design: Open Back

Cable length: Wireless

Drivers: 50mm

Weight: 15 oz

Compatibility: Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, PC

Reasons to buy

+

Haptic feedback feels good

+

Superior audio quality

+

Very solid wireless

Reasons to avoid

Mic isn’t the best

The Razer Nari Ultimate is definitely a strong contender for the best gaming headset, but it demands a high price of admission. However, if any headset goes a long way to justify its cost, it’s the Nari Ultimate – and that price has also been coming down in recent weeks and months.

In addition to bringing excellent surround sound, the headset also offers haptic feedback, which means it vibrates in time with the audio so you can literally feel the big noises (usually explosions). Initially thought of as a gimmick, it genuinely is successful and enhances immersion and how you experience a game. If you’re big on action titles, this headset is definitely for you.

Elsewhere, it’s worth noting that the Nari Ultimate is a wireless contender for best gaming headset for Xbox Series X and that the battery life is surprisingly good considering its wealth of features. Similarly, it’s unexpectedly comfy, subtly designed, feels good if you’re wearing glasses, and has a retractable mic. In fact, the only real issue is the mic; it doesn’t offer the same premium sound quality as the rest of the headset. 

If you can see past this and want one of the best audio experiences going, then there’s nothing quite like the Nari Ultimate. If you have the cash, we’d recommend this for the feel of using it alone, as it’s easily one of the best Xbox headsets we’ve ever tested.

10. Corsair HS35

A no-frills budget pick

Specifications

Acoustic design: Closed Back

Cable length: 6ft / 1.8m

Drivers: 40mm

Weight: 8.8 oz

Compatibility: PC, PS4, Xbox One, Switch, Mac, Mobile

Reasons to buy

+

Excellent value for money

+

Decent sound

+

Nice and clear mic

Reasons to avoid

Lacks features and extras

Only stereo sound

Taking advantage of the audio jack connection again, and offering a solid budget choice to get you going with your new Xbox console, the Corsair HS35 is the best gaming headset for Xbox Series X for anyone looking to save money and still get a decent device. This is a thoughtfully designed piece of kit, with a sturdy yet comfortable build and some impressive audio qualities.

Thanks to memory foam ear-cups and a comfy headband, the Corsair HS35 is comfortable for long periods of play. Its design is also robust enough to withstand being pulled on and off your head with a carefree attitude and survive the odd bump or two. 

The audio won’t win sky-high awards, but it’s on a par with most mid-range headsets and manages some snappy treble. In addition, the mic is clear and detachable, and there’s a color-coded cable that plugs into any 3.5mm connection. Simple, easy, and very affordable, so perhaps a risk-free Xbox Series X headset.

11. Turtle Beach Stealth 600 Gen 2

The best mid-range wireless headset

Specifications

Acoustic design: Closed Back, over ear

Drivers: 50mm

Battery life: 15 hours

Weight: 580g

Compatibility: Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PC

Reasons to buy

+

Solid battery life

+

Comfortable for glasses wearers

+

Excellent audio and microphone accuracy

+

Next-gen compatible

Reasons to avoid

Plastic across headband feels cheap 

Ear cups started to hurt after long-term wear

The second generation of Turtle Beach Stealth 600’s are a great low-to-mid level wireless headset compatible with Xbox Series X, Xbox One, and PC. 

With nicely-tuned 50mm drivers, a solid-but-unspectacular 15-hour battery life, a comfortable fit – even with glasses – the bang for buck value is strong. Throw in an easy setup process, and a very accessible price tag, and you really are off to a winner. This is certainly a great choice for gaming on a budget, as the sound quality is top-tier and the microphone sensitivity is ideal for those who want to communicate without shouting. However, because of the reasonable price, the headset plastic does feel a bit cheap, especially across the headband and on the ear cups, and unfortunately, the ear cups do get a little uncomfortable in longer gaming sessions.

However, the Turtle Beach Stealth 600 Gen 2’s are a good sequel to an affordable wireless headset. It looks pretty good, feels pretty good, and sounds great – a no-brainer if you’re looking to get a pair of headphones ahead of the next-gen release that won’t bankrupt you. This is definitely one of the best wireless gaming headsets, and certainly of the best Turtle Beach headsets.

12. EPOS | Sennheiser GSP 300

Great value Sennheiser audio excellence

Specifications

Acoustic design: Closed-acoustic, over-ear

Cable length: 2m

Drivers: N/A

Weight: 10.2oz

Compatibility: PS4, Xbox One, Switch, PC, Mobile, Mac

Reasons to buy

+

Sennheiser-quality audio

+

Excellently clear mic

+

Comfy

+

Affordable (for Sennheiser)

Reasons to avoid

No chat/game audio balancer

Limited features

Design is OK

As I said in my review “Getting a Sennheiser-quality headset like this, at this price point, and with this device-versatility, is an excellent proposition and one that is easy to recommend.” If you’re desperate to get some Sennheiser-level audio quality without paying the premium price tags, then the GSP 300 is just the best gaming headset for Xbox Series X for you. It’s compatible with every device and provides detailed audio, excellent surround/directional accuracy, and great overall richness. Its microphone is great too though it being non-detachable does perhaps preclude it from being a good match for Xbox players who want something for mobile too.

In an ideal world, it’d be nice to have some features but the stripped-back approach helps to keep the costs down too. Its sheer bang for buck value cannot be denied though and this is one of the best gaming headsets going for less than the three-figure mark. A great option for those wanting to get something excellent without breaking the bank for their Xbox Series X headset.
