If you’re a gamer who knows what they want, and that’s the best Xbox One headset – well, we’ve got some good news for you. After inspecting, experimenting, and generally tinkering with a flood of the latest gaming headphones for consoles, we’ve narrowed down the selection to the best Xbox One headset…and come up with the one headset you can’t do without.

#3 Pick Plantronics Rig Flex LX

 

The Xbox-compatible version of this headset is affordable, lightweight, and has great sound.

Price: $70 | Weight: 7 ounces | Connectivity: small cable with inline mic and longer cable with headset mic

These lightweight headphones have great clarity and are perfect for less intense gaming sessions when you want something easy and comfortable to wear. While some of the other headsets sounded better to me, it’s easy to see what the Rig Flex models are so popular: They tone down the features and size to provide a headset that focuses on fidelity, with a price everyone can afford. Notably the mic has options for both mobile gaming and more serious console sessions where quality is more important.

You’ll need to be careful with this headset, because the Flex isn’t always packaged with an Xbox One adapter for the Xbox controller. This adapter is absolutely necessary to use the headset with Microsoft’s console. Look for Rig Flex LX options that are specifically compatible with Xbox and ship with the adapter…or buy a different adapter of your own.
