Get your gaming on with our top 7 list of best headsets for Xbox and PS4. Live the adventure to the fullest and immerse yourself with the best gaming headsets that combine great audio performance, comfort and mic quality.

est Headset For Xbox and PS4:  Top 7 Options For Gamers

Whether you want them to communicate with your friends while gaming online, feel more immersed in your game with high-quality sound, or just trying not to disturb others around you, a good pair of gaming headsets can offer many benefits. Trying to find the best headphones for your Xbox One or PlayStation 4 can feel overwhelming with all the different types of headphones on the market.

With so many different options and styles to choose from, the following seven headsets are the perfect match of sound quality, ease of use, price, and microphone functionality for both PlayStation and Xbox users.

Turtle Beach Atlas Elite Pro

Many gang headsets skimp on the quality of the microphone, which leads to your voice sounding muffled to others listening to you. If you are a competitive gamer or one that plays many online games that require constant communication with your friends or teammates, the Atlas Elite Pro has an excellent microphone.

Also in this set’s favor is its price as it can be had for around $100. The few downsides are that the bass can be a bit loud for some users and it cannot fold away like other headsets on this list.

ASTRO Gaming A50 Wireless Gaming Headset

Overall, for sound and microphone quality, you cannot get any better than these can. With 7.1 surround, these also come Dolby Atmos-ready so you can get the absolute best out of your gaming audio setup.

As you can imagine, this headset does not come cheap. At a whopping $250, these can be even more expensive than the console you are using them with. For those audio aficionados looking for the absolute best sound regardless of price, these may be the ones for you.

GXT-383 7.1 Dion

Wearing a headset for hours upon hours can be uncomfortable, but this pair is perfect for those who are constantly annoyed by the discomfort their current headset is causing. With extra padding on the band and around the ears, you will never catch yourself adjusting your set to make it sit better on your head. The sound quality is respectable as well. With a 7.1 audio channel for surround sound gaming, it offers a rumble feature to simulate bass. With many headphones, bass can lead to audio distortion, but with the GXT-383 7.1 Dion you feel the bass with the added rumble function.

Logitech G430

Cheaper headsets can feel just that; cheap. However, there is a budget pair of gaming headphones that offers a respectable sound at a respectable price. The Logitech G430 does not offer many of the fancy features like other headsets on this list, but that can be a good thing. It does not come with any digital audio boxes, rumble bass, or wireless connections. It instead offers decent 7.1 sounding audio with bass and treble that does not muffle or distort the sound of the game.

While the microphone is not the best, it will ignore background sounds with its noise-canceling feature. Priced at around $40, it may not be the highest quality or sturdiest headset on this list, but it does offer the most value.

LucidSound LS40

LucidSound may not be a household name in the world of gaming headsets, but they have turned a few heads with their LS40 model. This headset is an all-around gem for those looking for a quality sounding, durable, comfortable, and wireless features. Unlike many gaming headphones, these are actually stylish enough to wear outside the house.

Most wireless headsets suffer from two faults; battery life and sound quality. This set, however, fixes both of those problems. With DTS 7.1 surround sound, its audio quality should be good enough for most users. For the battery, the LS40 comes with a 15-hour battery life, which is the best you are going to find in a headset without completely breaking the bank.

PlayStation Gold Headset / Xbox One Stereo Headset

PlayStation Gold Headset / Xbox One Stereo Headset

Two very attractive options for Xbox or PlayStation gamers are the headsets made by Microsoft and Sony themselves. These two headsets offer surprisingly decent audio quality and are both very comfortable to wear as well. The attached microphones are nothing special but are average quality and passable for typical online gaming.

The major downsides for these two sets are their build quality. The plastic parts feel cheap and fragile and are easy to snap. If you are someone who puts a lot of wear and tear into your headphones or travels with them a lot, these may not be for you.

SteelSeries Arctis Pro & GameDAC

SteelSeries Arctis Pro & GameDAC

This headset is one of the best ones you can purchase if you are looking for overall sound quality. The GameDAC version of this set comes equipped with a Hi-Resolution audio converter box. Simply put, for gamers looking for perfect audio on a wireless set, you are looking for this one.

The two major downsides for these headphones are price and wireless distance. If you are planning to use these more than six feet away from the console, you are going to experience some audio issues.

If you are in the market for a good pair of gaming headphones, there are so many options available. Also available but not included in the above list are the many different gaming earbuds you can use as well. In the end, it all comes down to the specific needs you have and any one of the above headsets is a good option for what you are looking for.
