Now that’s the real question: What IS the best Xbox One headset? 

There are a variety of headsets out there that you can use for your console. You can say that the best headsets you can get are those with the highest price right?

Well, my answer is NO.

Although some may disagree with my answer, I believe that obtaining a good proper headset does not require you to purchase the most expensive headset. I understand that some people won’t have a problem purchasing a high priced headset to get the best quality there is. However, I also understand that some people don’t want to spend that kind of money for just one headset.

Instead of telling you which headset is the best to use, I will give you brief overviews of what I think are the top 3 best Xbox One headsets that you can get that are not too pricy and offer good quality.


1. SADES SA-807

By: Sades

This headset is available in Amazon for just $17.99 (price may change).

It comes with ear cushions that make it comfortable to wear for a long period of time. What I thought was nice is that the cushions are designed to cover your ears to block out  sound coming from outside. It also has a 3.5mm plug so you can also use it to listen to music from your phone or tablet.

To my surprise, this headset is also compatible for the Xbox 360! It comes with an adapter so you can plug it in the controller. You may not need the adapter since you already have an Xbox One, but it would be a great use if you have a close friend or family member that still has an Xbox 360 that can use it.

The stereo sound is not too bad because it can capture every effect during gameplay such as footsteps in a FPS game. It delivers great sound quality.

You’ll be able to talk online since it comes with a mic and in-line controls to change the volume or mute the chat audio. The mic is omnidirectional so you can adjust it to any position you like!

With a low price I believe that the Sades SA-807 offers good quality for the player.


2. Afterglow LVL 3 Wired Headset for Xbox One

By: PDP 

The Afterglow LVL 3 Wired Headset is available for $29.84 in Amazon (price may change).

Now this headset has 40mm drivers that deliver great audio experience. If taken care well these can last you for a long time. What I like about this product is that the cushions are made of really soft leather, which can be very comfortable to wear. 

In-line controls enable you to mute/unmute the audio and control the volume. The mic adjusts up and down and you can also bend or even twist the mic! It also captures your voice really well and clear so your buddies, or other people online, won’t have any trouble hearing you. The wire of the headset is flat so it wouldn’t get tangled into a bunch.

The only thing that may bug other people is that the headset does not have a lot of bass. I mean, the bass is not so little that you won’t be able to hear the effects of explosions, punches, cannon fire, and other things like that. It’s just average but I don’t think it is a big deal.

No need to worry if this headset will have a lot of weight because it doesn’t. It is very light that you’ll barely notice it when you move your head.


3. DIZA100 Gaming Headset

By: DIZA100 

This headset is available for $27.40 in Amazon (price may change). It’s also available in two colors which are blue and red. It comes with a splitter cable in case you would like to use it for your PC. The stereo sound is fantastic. Even though it is not surround sound, it gives you great audio for an affordable price. Its weight is very light and its design makes it really comfy to wear for a long time. 

The mic rotates for 120 degrees, but the downside of it is that you can’t bend it. That’s no problem because this mic captures your voice to be very clear and rich. There’s no need to talk loud because it won’t be necessary for this mic.

One awesome feature that this headset has is the LED lights that can light up! This makes the headset look super rad. So you’ll look like a badass while gaming. Not only does it look good but it is strong as well. One hard pull won’t damage the headset so this mean it can last for a long time.

The bass is a little better compared to the Afterglow LVL 3, but both offer great quality for a great price!


Any of these 3 headphones are a great choice to get. With these affordable prices they deliver great quality for the average player!

    O m g……I love the DIZA100 Gaming Headset and I am not even a gamer. I am on the computer a lot so could still use it for Skype and for listening to music. The LED lights did it for me. Great price too!! Want!!

    My son can be pretty tough on the equipment, so knowing that there are affordable choices for headsets out there is a big help. He won’t have too many lawns to mow so he can go out and buy his own and quit borrowing mine!

    I noticed these are all wired headsets, are there any wireless options in the same price range? Thanks for doing this review, I look forward to seeing more of these in the future!

      I’m glad that you found this article helpful! I did look to see if there were any cheap wireless headsets but, unfortunately, I wasn’t able to find any.

      However, I will look into it again and hopefully I can find some within the same price range as these headsets.

    Thanks for the recommendations. Looking to upgrade my xbox 360 to an xbox one soon and will likely need a headset. These all seem like good value for the price, and look great!

      No problem Adam! That’s awesome that you will be upgrading to an Xbox One. Now that the Xbox One S came out you will have the option to choose from that or the original console!

      Although I already own an original Xbox One console, the Xbox One S seems like it is worth buying considering its small size and cool new features.
