12 Best Xbox Series X, Series S Wireless Headsets of 2020

Microsoft’s latest consoles, the Xbox Series X and Series S have released, which means you’ll want a good wireless headset that won’t restrict your movements to pair with these next-gen consoles. As a result, we have reviewed the best Xbox Series X wireless headsets.

Additionally, to make your decision a bit easier, we’ve included a wide variety of Xbox Series X and Series S wireless headsets options based on performance, comfort, and aesthetics so that you can simply choose the right one for you based on your budget and aesthetics. Let’s not waste any more time, and take a look at them.

1SteelSeries Arctis 9X Wireless

Specifications:
Acoustic Design: Closed Back | Wireless: Yes | Weight: 371g | Drivers: 40mm | Compatibility: Xbox Series X, Series S, Xbox One, PC, Mobile, Switch, VR
Key features:
  • Designed and built for the Xbox Series X
  • Dual connectivity
  • ChatMix control
  • Discord-certified noise-canceling microphone

SteelSeries is on a roll with their newer headset models, and the Arctis 9X is certainly one worth looking at if you’re going to be getting one of Microsoft’s new consoles. It gets you all the nice things SteelSeries have to offer but keeps the price a bit lower than the Pro models in the lineup.

The best thing about these is definitely the comfort. The padding on the earcups is brilliant, as it’s pretty thick and very breathable, and the suspended headband design makes things even better. You can adjust the headband, too, so you’re going to get a great fit.

The sound quality is what you would expect from a good SteelSeries headset. Immersion is top-notch, and everything sounds crystal clear, regardless of what game you’re playing. There’s also the Discord-certified ClearCast microphone, which is one of the best microphones out there and gets you excellent voice quality.

Last but not least, you’ve also got Bluetooth to connect to your smartphone while you’re gaming and over 20 hours of battery life. If they fit your budget, the Arctis 9X Wireless should absolutely make it on your shortlist, as they could very well be the best headset for the new Xbox, considering it is compatible.

2Astro A50 Wireless

Specifications:
Acoustic Design: Closed Back | Wireless: Yes | Weight: 380g | Drivers: 40mm | Compatibility: Xbox Series X, Series S, Xbox One, PC, Mac
Key features:
  • Included base station for charging
  • ASTRO Audio V2 tuning
  • Astro Command Center compatibility
  • Mod Kit ready
  • Over 15 hours of battery life

The first thing that comes to mind when you look at Astro’s A50 headset is probably how expensive it is. But take a closer look, and you realize that the price is very much worth it, because you do get quite a lot for your money in a headset that is compatible with the new Xbox.

On the outside, you get a comfortable headset with plenty of padding on both the earcups and the headband. They’re pretty great in this regard, and you can easily wear them for hours at a time. There is also the included base station which functions as a charging place, and a USB sound card, which is neat.

The sound quality is great, and Astro did a great job with the tuning. The sound is relaxed, and the entire experience is pretty immersive. This is to be expected since you have Dolby Audio, but still, it’s worth noting. The microphone sounds really good, too, and you get the possibility to balance the game and chat audio as you see fit.

Factor in things like compatibility with Astro’s Mod Kit and Command Center software, as well as over 15 hours of battery life, the price isn’t all that expensive after all.  

3Turtle Beach Stealth 600 Black Gen 2

Specifications:
Acoustic Design: Closed Back | Wireless: Yes | Weight: 380g | Drivers: 50mm | Compatibility Xbox Series X, Series S, Xbox One, PC
Key features:
  • Excellent comfort on the headband and earcups
  • 15-hour battery life
  • Superhuman Hearing
  • Flip-to-mute microphone

Not everyone who wants a good wireless headset wants to spend a lot of money, and if you don’t, then Turtle Beach’s Stealth 600 Gen 2 is a great option for you. Coming in at a pretty reasonable price, the headset checks all the boxes for a great experience with Microsoft’s latest console.

The sound quality comes first, and with the Stealth 600 Gen 2, we have zero complaints. Turtle Beach has included their Superhuman Hearing surround setting, which puts you in the center of the experience, and is something you will absolutely enjoy. The microphone is flip-to-mute, and when out of the way, it integrates into the headset very well. When in use, it gets you a very clear experience which your teammates will love.

Comfort is also top-notch, and Turtle Beach didn’t hold back when they added padding. Both the earcups and the headband have ample padding, which results in an overall very nice experience. The weight is pretty reasonable, too, which only adds comfort.

Factor in the long battery life, which is up to 15 hours, and at this price, the Stealth 600 Gen 2 actually offers a lot of bang for your buck. A really good pick for the new Xbox.

4SteelSeries Arctis 7X Wireless

Specifications:
Acoustic Design: Closed Back | Wireless: Yes | Weight: 354g | Drivers: 40mm | Compatibility: Xbox Series X, Series X, Xbox One, PC, Switch, Mobile
Key features:
  • Designed for Xbox Series X
  • Lossless 2.4GHz audio for zero latency
  • Discord-certified microphone
  • Unparalleled comfort
  • 24-hour battery life

A slightly better-priced variant than the highest-end models in the lineup, the Arctis 7X is specifically made for the new Xbox – it even has Microsoft certification for that. And with what is basically unparalleled comfort, the price becomes even more attractive.

On the outside, you get the trademark Arctis design – thick, plush earcups, suspended headband design, and a subtle overall look with green accents to match the Xbox colors. SteelSeries follow the “if it ain’t broken, don’t fix it” philosophy, and it works wonders with the 7X Wireless. This is one of the most comfortable headsets out there, and it also looks really good, too.

The sound quality is excellent as well, and SteelSeries go as far as calling this the “signature Arctis sound”. This means an immersive experience where everything is very clear, and an overall balanced sound signature that’s just perfect for gaming. The Discord-certified microphone works pretty great, too, and your teammates will be able to hear you very well.

Overall, when it comes to choosing a headset for the new Xbox console, SteelSeries has an excellent competitor in the Arctis 7X Wireless, and the reasonable price makes it an even better choice.

5Audeze Penrose X Wireless

Specifications:
Acoustic Design: Closed Back, Planar Magnetic | Wireless: Yes | Weight: 320g | Drivers: 100mm | Compatibility: Xbox Series X, Series S, Xbox One, PC
Key features:
  • Audeze Mobius 100mm drivers
  • Dual connectivity option
  • Memory foam for added comfort
  • Detachable boom microphone
  • Compatibility with Audeze HQ app

Audeze is a pretty popular name in the audiophile industry, and the Penrose is their more wallet-friendly foray into the gaming world. The Penrose X is the Xbox-oriented variant, and is a very appealing proposition for gaming, getting high praise all around.

The best thing about the Penrose X are the drivers – these are the Mobius 100mm planar magnetic drivers, and they’re the same ones found in the higher end Mobius headset. The sound quality you’ll get from these is pretty much perfect, and the level of immersion Audeze has achieved with tuning is truly stunning. Then there is the detachable boom microphone, which records your voice as clearly as possible, and is made with Shure, which is a guarantee for quality.

Comfort is great, too, thanks to the memory foam padding in the earcups and headband, and the overall low weight of the headset. You can easily wear these for hours at a time, with zero issues.

Factor in the decent battery life, as well as the possibility to use both low-latency 2.4GHz wireless, and Bluetooth, and you can easily see why this is a great choice for a premium gaming headset. If you’re getting the new Xbox, certainly consider them.

6SteelSeries Arctis 1 Wireless

Specifications:
Acoustic Design: Closed Back | Wireless: Yes | Weight: 252g | Drivers: 40mm | Compatibility: Xbox Series X, Series S, Xbox One, PC, Mobile, Switch
Key features:
  • Lightweight and very comfortable
  • Microsoft certified
  • Steel-reinforced headband for durability
  • Very affordable price

If you’ve ever used any of the Arctis headsets by SteelSeries, you’re probably used to the level of comfort they provide. What’s interesting, is that even the most wallet-friendly option, the Arctis 1 Wireless, comes with that same comfort, and a price that’s incredibly attractive for budget-oriented folks.

The signature thick padding on the earcups is present on the Arctis 1, and it gets the same breathable treatment you’d expect from a premium headset. There is no suspended headband, but there is ample padding on the conventional one, so you don’t miss out on any comfort. And at 252 grams, they’re very lightweight, too.

You’ll also love the sound quality, which is on par with more premium models on the market today. They sound great, and while there is no virtual surround sound, the level of immersion is very, very good. The Discord-certified ClearCast microphone sounds phenomenal as well, which is another reason to love the Arctis 1.

Last but not least, you’ve got a respectable 20 hours of battery life, which is more than enough to get you through a day or two of gaming. At this price, the Arctis 1 Wireless is basically a steal.

7Razer BlackShark V2 Pro

Specifications:
Acoustic Design: Closed Back | Wireless: Yes | Weight: 320g | Drivers: 50mm | Compatibility: PS5, PS4, PC, Xbox, Mobile
Key features:
  • THX 7.1 surround sound
  • Triforce Titanium drivers for excellent sound quality
  • Detachable cardioid noise-canceling microphone
  • Gel-infused earcups for added comfort
  • Wired and wireless connectivity

When you think of Razer, your mind probably wanders towards flashy products that attract a lot of attention when seen. And while they do have such a reputation, the BlackShark V2 Pro is something of an exception to the rule, and a good one we might add. It’s subtle, it looks nice, and it performs on par with, if not better than the similarly-priced competitors.

On the outside, the BlackShark V2 Pro is all about being subtle. It’s all black, and there aren’t even colored accents anywhere on it. The Razer logo on the headband and earcups is blacked out completely. And no, there is no RGB either. And we love it.

The sound quality is excellent. Razer used their Triforce Titanium 50mm drivers with excellent tuning, and you also get THX 7.1 surround sound for an even more immersive experience. In games, this does make a massive difference. So does the Hyperclear microphone Razer include – voice communication is great.

All things considered, the BlackShark V2 Pro does have a lot going for it. And if you like the aesthetics, and they fit your budget, by all means, go for it.

8LucidSound LS35X Wireless

Specifications:
Acoustic Design: Closed Back | Wireless: Yes | Weight: 396g | Drivers: 50mm | Compatibility Xbox Series X, Series S, Xbox One, PC, Mobile, Switch
Key features:
  • Gel-cooled earcups for comfort in high temperatures
  • Dual microphone setup
  • One-button connectivity with Xbox
  • Included travel case

LucidSound may be one of those brands you’ve never heard of, but their LS35X is a great choice for people looking for a wireless headset for the new Xbox Series X. It’s comfortable, it’s built like a tank, and it sounds good. It does come at a price, though, so let’s see whether or not it is worth it.

On the outside, the LS35X screams premium. You have metal around the earcups and leather on the headband, and the earcups are gel cooled to make sure you’re comfortable even when it’s hotter than you’d like. They look really good, too, with an all-black design.

The sound quality is really good, too. The surround sound works with Windows Sonic and Dolby Atmos, so you do get the immersive experience you want, and you can adjust the volume with the volume wheel on the earcup. The dual-microphone system has mic monitoring and advanced noise cancellation, so comms should be good to go, too.

With up to 15 hours of battery life, it’s easy to see why the LS35X could very well be your introduction to the brand that is LucidSound.

9HyperX CloudX Flight

Specifications:
Acoustic Design: Closed Back | Wireless: Yes | Weight: 315g | Drivers: 50mm | Compatibility: Xbox Series X, Series S, Xbox One, PC
Key features:
  • Official Xbox Licensed headset
  • Built-in chat mixer
  • Excellent comfort for longer gaming sessions
  • Detachable microphone with LED mute indicator
  • Up to 30 hours of battery life

HyperX is a brand that’s synonymous with comfort in their headsets, and the CloudX Flight is no exception to that. Yes, it’s far from cheap, but for that price, you’re looking at a lightweight and very comfortable gaming headset that is officially licensed by Microsoft for Xbox.

On the outside, the design is rather simple. It’s a black headset with green accents, so it’s just in line with the Xbox color combination, and it looks right at home. There are no complex situations with the design – you get a pair of thick, plush earcups and equally thick padding on the headband, too, and this is an excellent combination.

The sound quality is very good, too. The 50mm drivers are tuned very well and get you an immersive experience when you’re gaming. HyperX has included a detachable microphone with mic monitoring, and a chat mixer that lets you balance the sound levels as you see fit. It’s all very well thought out.

Last but not least, wireless performance is top-notch – you get 2.4GHz wireless connectivity for zero latency and up to 30 hours of battery life. The CloudX Flight just checks all the boxes, really. What else could you need?

10Astro A20 Wireless

Specifications:
Acoustic Design: Closed Back | Wireless: Yes | Weight: 318g | Drivers: 40mm | Compatibility: Xbox Series X, Series S, Xbox One, PC, Mac
Key features:
  • ASTRO Audio V2 tuning
  • Comfortable design with plush earcups
  • Flip-to-mute microphone with excellent quality
  • More than 15 hours of battery life

While the A20 Wireless by Astro is certainly not cheap, it is their more budget-oriented headset that still manages to tick a lot of boxes that make a headset good by all standards. It is made for the new Xbox consoles, with a design to support that, and it performs great in just about any scenario.

On the outside, the black and white design with green accents looks nice and modern. It’s a simple design but it works for the A20. The headband is pretty stiff, but comfortable, while the earcups are plush and soft – perfect for comfort.

The sound quality you get is great, in part thanks to the ASTRO Audio V2 tuning that’s similar to what you get on higher-end Astro headsets. The level of immersion is pretty good, too, and we have no complaints there. The microphone works very well, and you get flip-to-mute, so you can get it out of the way quickly if you don’t need it.

Last but not least, Astro’s A20 boasts over 15 hours of battery life, which should be more than enough to get you through a day of gaming, and you can charge them overnight. If they fit your budget, by all means, give them a shot.  

11Corsair Virtuoso RGB

Specifications:
Acoustic Design: Closed Back | Wireless: Yes | Weight: 360g | Drivers: 50mm | Compatibility: Xbox Series X, Series S, Xbox One, PS5, PS4, PC
Key features:
  • Immersive 7.1 surround sound
  • Premium memory foam ear cups
  • 60 feet signal range
  • Broadcast-grade omnidirectional microphone

Corsair is one of those brands that while primarily oriented towards the PC gamer crowd, has a couple of products that are great for console gamers, too. A prime example is the Virtuoso RGB headset, which is a wireless headset that’s compatible with the Xbox Series X and Series S, and while at a premium price, gets you pretty good value.

On the outside, the design is very modern and minimalistic. Corsair used some premium materials, such as metal to hold the earcups, and throughout the headset in other places, and the material used on the headband feels very nice, too. Did we mention the premium memory foam earcups and RGB logo? Yes, that too.

The sound quality is really good, too. You get an immersive 7.1 surround sound experience, with a pair of 50mm drivers that work very well. The microphone is great and cancels out pretty much any outside noise. Overall, we have zero complaints about the sound quality.

Pair this with Corsair’s Slipstream wireless technology for zero latency, as well as up to 20 hours of battery life, and you see why the high price of the Virtuoso RGB still makes it a good proposition.

12Turtle Beach Stealth 700 Gen 2

Specifications:
Acoustic Design: Closed Back | Wireless: Yes | Weight: Unknown | Drivers: 50mm | Compatibility: Xbox Series X, Series S, Xbox One, PC, Mobile, Switch
Key features:
  • Durable design
  • Nanoclear drivers for excellent quality
  • Flip-to-mute microphone
  • Up to 20 hours of battery life
  • Excellent comfort

Turtle Beach’s Stealth 700 Gen 2 is a gradual improvement over its predecessor, which makes it an only better choice for people who liked the first ones but wanted a slightly better audio quality. With excellent drivers and microphone, and great comfort, should you be taking a closer look at them?

The sound quality is pretty good, and you have Turtle Beach’s 50mm Nanoclear drivers and reconstructed acoustics. This gets you an immersive experience with a relaxed, well-balanced sound overall. The microphone is pretty good, too, and when you flip it up to mute it, it disappears in the earcup.

Comfort levels are better than you’d think. There is more than ample padding on the earcups and headband, so the Stealth 700 is a great pick for extended gaming sessions. Oh, and did we mention you also get Bluetooth and over 20 hours of battery life?
