No matter what headset you buy, they allow you to communicate with players on your team. Which is essential if you want to consistently win. The other thing that all headsets will do that you may not think about is privatize the game sound. You will no longer have to play game sound out of your tv. This may not seem like a big deal but your family or anyone you live with that’s in ear shot will greatly appreciate this new luxury. Games have a lot of little sounds that give you information or immerse you in the game that you don’t realize. I guarantee you that your mom in the kitchen is tired of hearing that you team has a UAV or that your losing bravo for the millionth time.
Good headsets will provide you with surround sound to allow you to have echo location like tracking with your ears. Of course you wont just be able to instantly track opponents with your ears. Sound whoring is a learned skill just like aiming, movement or map awareness. So it will take some time get good at. In Call of duty this is a huge part of the game and I win a lot of gun fights because I know where someone is at.
The last thing I wanted to mention before we get into this video is the price of headsets. I’ve used Astro A40s for the last 5 years and I absolutely love my astros. However, with the mixamp astro A40s come in at $250. There is diminishing return when it comes to these headsets. Some of them will cost $30 and will be like 70% of the quality of my Astro A40s. So keep in mind that for not a lot of money you can get most of the quality that a top end headset could provide. The difference is not night and day but it will be noticeable.
As always Ill leave a link to all the products featured in this video in the description.
Number 5 – NUBWO N7 Gaming Headset - https://amzn.to/31LjmQX
Coming in at $25 this headset features dual 50mm speaker drivers, a noise canceling mic and an auto adjusting band. This is a great beginner headset for anyone on a budget. If you are into FPS games and want to start having a noise advantage, then this would be a great option for you. Otherwise the over the ear headset will just help with noise cancelation and immersion. For the price this is one of the best headsets you can get.
Number 4 – Turtle beach battle buds - https://amzn.to/38oKfLZ
For just $30 the turtle beach battle buds is the best in ear gaming headset. I’ve never been a fan of in ear gaming headsets but this is great for anyone who doesn’t need a surround sound headset. While you will have left and right sound you wont be able to track opponents the same way you’d be able to without up and down or back and forward sound. If you play a lot of fighting games or single player games then this is a great headset for you.
Number 3 – HyperX CloudX Stinger Core - https://amzn.to/2NVcZ5k
For $40 the CloudX stinger core is a perfect entry level headset for gamers on the Xbox looking for a great headset at an affordable price. This Official Xbox licensed headset features all the basic aspects gamers want for their Xbox One; great sound quality, comfort, convenience, and reliability. An adjustable steel slider and soft ear cushions provide comfort for those long nights of gaming, and the flexible, swiveling mic lets you position the microphone just where you want it for optimal comfort and sound quality. You can stay immersed in your game thanks to the closed cup design and directional 40mm drivers that feature enhanced bass tuned for console gaming. With a 2-year warranty and free tech support, CloudX Stinger Core is designed to reliably provide audio satisfaction for the long run. The HyperX CloudX Stinger Core is an affordable headset, perfect for playing Xbox One games.
Number 2 – SteelSeries Arctis 1 - https://amzn.to/38tIdKj
For $50 you can get the wired version or for $100 you can get the wireless model. Wireless connectivity works seamlessly with its included dongle, and I have had zero dropouts or latency issues with it on both xbox and Nintendo Switch. The Aectis 1 has a detachable clear cast noise canceling microphone that provides natural sounding clarity and is discord certified. Mic quality is excellent as well as audio quality, it’s perfectly balanced and not ridiculously skewed towards bass, and the volume can be raised very high if you want. Battery life so far has also been great, it’s something I haven’t had to worry about when using and I only had to charge them once every week out of habit. The headset itself doesn’t feel flimsy and seems decently built, It’s light and surprisingly comfortable to wear.
Before I reveal my pick for the best headset for the xbox in 2020 I want to show some top contenders. These are my honorable mentions.
The Astro A40s are by far my favorite headset. It has excellent comfort, sound quality and durability. Astro gaming has been upgrading and refining the astro A40s for over a decade. The Astro A40s have many unique features. Like customizable speaker tags and the mix amp with its own set of features. As I said earlier I have used this headset for the last 5 years only using other headsets to test them for this channel.
The other headset I wanted to mention was the turtle beach XP 7 I tried this headset at MLG Anaheim and was shocked by the quality and noise cancellation. This is one of the most engineered gaming headsets I have ever seen. It is also one of the most expensive. For $250 this is just too much for most gamers.
Number 1 – Razer kraken - https://amzn.to/3gx11v7
For just $65 this 3rd generation Razer Kraken is the wired headset for competitive gamers. Its large 50 mm drivers deliver powerful and clear sound. It’s engineered for long-lasting comfort with cooling-gel cushions. A retractable microphone ensures your callouts are always delivered in absolute clarity. Cooling gel-infused ear cushions reduce heat build-up, while a soft cloth and leatherette combination provides comfort and sound isolation so you can enjoy gaming for hours.
