Best Overall

Strong, viable, and downright marvelous, the ASTRO Gaming A50 looks like a gaming headset that was intentionally made for the Xbox One. This high-end headset hits all the right spots that make it the best in overall performance for the console.

Pros:
  • Superb surround sound quality
  • Awesome ergonomics
  • Suitable color palette
Cons:
  • Very expensive

Before anything else, just look at the colors of the ASTRO Gaming A50. It is honestly just breaming with the right specs to make this a highly effective Xbox One headset. The ASTRO Gaming A50 is a Dolby 7.1 surround sound headset that can automatically plug and play on both the Xbox One and a Windows 10 PC. Everything about it is great: the ergonomics, the soft padding, the adjustments, the light build, the colors, the microphone, it is everything you could ever want to enhance your Xbox gaming experience. Just mind the price, that is.

Best Value

The HyperX Cloud Stinger makes a great budget gaming headset for the Xbox One. The Stinger edition is the cheapest of the bunch and still retains lots of value to make it a reliable headset whether you are playing a singleplayer campaign or an expansive multiplayer game.

Pros:
  • Excellent surround sound
  • Good mic quality
  • Very affordable
Cons:
  • Not so ergonomic
  • Thin cable

The HyperX Cloud Stinger is one of the 3 Cloud series versions. It just so happens that the Stinger is the cheapest of the bunch – and the best for budget gaming. Easy to plug on the Xbox One, the Stinger is abundant in features while costing less; making this a highly valuable gaming headset at an affordable price. There is nothing much to say about the Stinger except that it has very good stereo quality with 50mm directional drivers, an ergonomic finish and a lightweight build. We do have to criticize about the mic, however – since it sounds quite muffled. But hey, it has noise-cancelling so that’s not so bad. Overall, buy this if you want an affordable yet effective gaming headset for the Xbox One.

Best Surround Sound

The Razer Kraken is an absolute beast when it comes to all-around gaming. This headset is enjoyed by many gamers across different platforms but it is mainly because of its stellar surround sound quality for a very good price.

Pros:
  • Top-notch audio
  • flexible mic
  • Good price
Cons:
  • Not so ergonomic
  • Pads are a bit stiff

The Razer Kraken is no stranger to the gaming world – whether you’re playing competitively on Apex Legends or saving humanity on Halo. Whatever the case, the Razer Kraken never disappoints – especially when it comes to the sound quality. You see, it sports a couple of 7.1 surround sound speakers but they are the most amazing surround sounds within its price range. Not only that, but the mic quality is good too. You can also configure its settings thanks to the 50mm directional drivers in it. The Razer Kraken is an icon in gaming – and if you have it for the Xbox One, it shows your true colors as a gamer – mostly because of the green tint on both items.

Best High-End

If you prefer something more on the posh side, the Sennheiser GSP 600 Gaming Headset is the way to go. It includes all the essentials that make it a great gaming headset and further beyond. Do you need a highly reliable headset for competitive games like Halo or Gears 5? Then, the Sennheiser GSP 600 Gaming Headset is your ideal choice.

Pros:
  • Good stereo quality
  • clear mic
  • Very ergonomic
Cons:
  • Very expensive

Sennheiser GSP 600 Gaming Headset is a powerful tool that is not easy on the money. But the pay-off is shown once you experience it. Without a doubt, the Sennheiser GSP 600 Gaming Headset is a marvelous accessory for the Xbox One whether you’re mowing your way through the Locusts in Gears of War or securing your defenses on Siege. According to the product page, the Sennheiser GSP 600 Gaming Headset includes a flip-to-mute mic, a volume control wheel and a very ergonomic design with a flexible headband.

Best Limited Edition Headset

The ASTRO Gaming Call of Duty A20 is a limited edition headset for the Xbox One. If you cannot see the bigger picture, this ASTRO A20 headset has a custom Call of Duty design all over – which makes it perfect for a CoD fanboy. Whether you like CoD or not, the A20 performs its best during high-explosive games.

Pros:
  • As good as the A50
  • 15+ hours battery life
  • Fast charging
Cons:
  • Slightly heavy
  • Quite expensive

The ASTRO Gaming Call of Duty A20 is what we would personally describe as an MLG-type of headset. It is a heavy-duty gaming headset that includes specs that works best for multiplayer games beyond Call of Duty. The design itself is pretty good – the usual CoD type of design and one that you would expect from a company that targets the mainstream action game demographic. It shares almost the same aspects of the A50 except it is wireless. The mic quality is pretty good and the sound quality is top-notch. Nothing much else we can talk about here except if you are a big fan of the franchise, this one is definitely for you.

What We Would Buy

It always comes down to preference. If you want the best of everything, you should obviously go for the ASTRO Gaming A50 if you have the money. But if you cannot afford such price, there is always the ever-reliable HyperX Cloud Stinger. If you prefer something best for competitive games, you opt for the Razer Kraken. Are you convinced that the more expensive is better? Well, the Sennheiser GSP 600 Gaming Headset is what you should definitely opt for. And finally, if you love action FPS, wireless gaming and CoD combined, the ASTRO Call of Duty A20 Wireless is the most optimal option.
