Best Xbox Microphone Headsets

Updated on October 2, 2009

Xbox Headset

When playing regular Xbox 360, you don't really need a headset, but if you plan on playing Live, you'll want and need a headset. It will make communication so much easier with your opponents and teammates.

You will get a headset with your Xbox console, but it's just not going to last forever. You will eventually need to purchase another microphone headset. When you do go to purchase another headset for your xbox, you'll want to make sure that your money is well spent. If you're trying to go cheap, at least get a decent cheap headset.

When choosing a headset for your xbox, you'll want to consider a few things before you buy a xbox microphone headset.

  • How much do you want to spend?
  • Do you want corded or wireless?
  • What style of headset do you want?
  • What features do you want? (Ambient noise blockers, volume control, etc)

Over Ear Headset

Although it's not wireless, which many gamers prefer, this headset is pretty durable. It's clear and loud for both you to hear and other people to hear you. It's a cheaper priced xbox headset, but it is durable, and you'll definitely get your money's worth.

Max Live Headset

This headset is a little more plain, but it's compatible with both ears and the microphone integrated in the headset... Well, that's really all headsets, but hey it works and it's pretty durable. There's really nothing special about this headset, and it's kind of on you if you purchase it, as it doesn't seem to last as long as the others, but it's cheap... Really cheap, which makes it favored, even though it is short term. Buy a few at the same time and save on shipping, if you're trying to save money.

Stereo Headset

This on is a little bulky but it's going to give you more of a sound experience with its line amplifier volume control for the game and for chat. There's an adjustable microphone that works with your xbox as well as PC, TV, and speakers. This headset is really geared towards sound, and even though it does look bulky, they're comfortable and more lightweight than you think.

Headset Communicator

This headset looks pretty cool. It's got a mini microphone, and the headset goes around your head and curves around your ears for stability. You can selectively mute players if you want to, as well as taunt, challenge, and strategize with your teammates and opponents. There's even a col voice masking feature that allows you to alter your voice.

Under Ear Headset

This headset is pretty cool. It curves around the underside of your ear. It is wired, but that's ok because the xbox headset is able to provide decent communication. This headset will not work for everyone, so keep that in mind, and it is supposed to fit a little loose.

Wireless Headset

Wireless is definitely favored among most gamers because that's one less cord that can get in the way of optimum gaming, as long as you can control and still get clear communication within a good distance without having to sit on the TV. Well, you get about 30 feet of range with this headset, and about 8 hours of play per battery charge. You can plug in the AC wall adapter for convenient, quick charging, though. This headset is more of an ear piece, and really resembles a Bluetooth headset, in my opinion. It'll fit on either ear and comes with two different sizes of ear grips.

      Never buy Wireless's! They get bad reception and turn on/off. They also just randomly stop charging and stuff later too and theres no way to fix it. If you buy a wireless, get the halo 3 edition, they have no bad problems at all, but they might be expensive now :P
