(Pocket-lint) - Om du aldrig har använt ett headset att spela med, har du en revolution på gång. När du väl kliver in i en värld av högkvalitativt spelljud kan det vara svårt att komma tillbaka.

Oavsett om du vill ha det för enspelares berättelsedrivna upplevelser, eller för att ge dig fördelen i multiplayer-matcher, kommer du att märka en stor skillnad när du byter till ett headset - såvida du naturligtvis inte har en häpnadsväckande bra hemmabioinstallation.

Många headset fungerar dock inte på olika spelkonsoler, och det är viktigt att undersöka vilket som fungerar bäst för dig. Vi har uttömmande testat ett brett utbud av headset med våra Xbox-konsoler, genomgått dem och bestämt vilka du bör överväga för din egen spelkonfiguration.

Lyckligtvis fungerar alla headset vi har visat här på Xbox Series X , Xbox Series S och Xbox One, så du kommer att vara täckt oavsett vilken konsol du spelar på.


Vilket är det bästa headsetet för Xbox? Vi rekommenderar för närvarande att kolla in Steelseries Arctis 9X som en prioritet. Andra utmärkta alternativ finns dock i Xbox Wireless Headset , Steelseries Arctis 7X , Corsair HS75 XB och LucidSound LS50X .


Vårt bästa val: Xbox-headset

Pocket-lintBästa Xbox One -headset för 2020 fantastiska hörlurar för festchatt och spelbild 1

SteelSeries Arctis 9X

squirrel_widget_3633181

För

  • Extremt bekväm
  • Bra ljud
  • One-touch-anslutning

Mot

  • Ganska dyrt

SteelSeries tar toppplatsen på vår lista eftersom det spikar den kombination av bekvämlighet och kvalitet som vi letar efter när det kommer till ett konsolheadset. Det är en genialisk översyn av tillverkarens toppheadset, som lägger till Xbox Wireless-standarden för att ge enastående anslutningsmöjligheter.

Det betyder att den ansluts direkt till din konsol som en handkontroll (och att den kommer att kunna göra samma sak för Xbox Series X när den släpps), vilket ger stenhårda anslutningar och ingen märkbar fördröjning.

Dessutom är hörlurarna riktigt snyggt konstruerade och extremt bekväma att bära och, mer än så, har de lätt den mest subtila designen vi stött på i våra tester (bara Logitechs ansträngning kommer nära). Mikrofonen kan även förvaras när du spelar solo.

Slutligen är ljudkvaliteten superb, speciellt om du aktiverar Windows Sonic eller ännu bättre Dolby Atmos för hörlurar. Du kommer att få en verklig fördel i reaktionsbaserade spel för flera spelare och bli helt nedsänkt i enspelares äventyr. Vi kan inte riktigt rekommendera detta headset tillräckligt högt, för att vara ärlig.

Ultimately, though we consider the SteelSeries Arctis 9X to be the top headset to consider for Xbox users, we do also appreciate that it may not be the right pick for every gamer. That's why we also recommend the four headsets below, too.

Xbox trådlöst headset

squirrel_widget_4310224

För

  • Imponerande ljud
  • Gedigen komfort
  • Stort värde

Mot

  • Något medioker mikrofon

Xbox debuterade nyligen med sitt eget officiella headset och det är ett alldeles utmärkt fynd, prissatt mycket förnuftigt men levererar förstklassigt ljud.

Du får superenkel anslutning till vilken Xbox du än har, och fullt Dolby Atmos-stöd om du har en licens.

Även utan det låter det bra och är skönt och skönt att ha på sig. Anständig batteritid och en solid mikrofon avrundar paketet snyggt, vilket gör det till ett utmärkt val.

SteelSeries Arctis 7X

squirrel_widget_4619530

För

  • SteelSeries komfort
  • Bra ljud
  • Bättre pris än 9X

Mot

  • Fortfarande relativt dyrt

SteelSeries har dock inte bara Arctis 9X - dess senaste tillskott till Xbox-serien är den något mer prisvärda (men fortfarande premium) Arctis 7X, och det är ett utmärkt val om din budget är lite lägre.

Komforten är superb, och headsetet är faktiskt extremt likt 9X med några lite lättare och mindre solida designelement som den enda riktiga ledtråden.

Ljudet, i synnerhet, är ganska omöjligt att skilja, och du har samma utbud av kontroller på öronkåpan för snabba ändringar.

LucidSound LS50X

squirrel_widget_3491544

För

  • Fantastiskt ljud
  • Bekvämare än det ser ut

Mot

  • Lite tungt
  • Behöver en dongel

LucidSound LS50X är intressant av flera anledningar. För det första är den trådlös med superb batteritid, men den har också Bluetooth-anslutning och kan paras ihop med två enheter samtidigt och spela upp ljud från båda samtidigt.

För det andra har den anständiga förare och ljudblockerande öronkåpor i konstläder med en bekväm dämpning av memory foam/vätskekylande gelblandning som gör dem till en fröjd att bära.

Släng in några intelligenta on-ear-kontroller, två mikrofoner (på inbyggd, en avtagbar) och en robust ram så har du ett riktigt snyggt headset.

Corsair HS75 XB

squirrel_widget_3639949

För

  • Riktigt bra ljud
  • Gedigen byggkvalitet
  • Xbox trådlös anslutning

Mot

  • Inte det bästa priset

Corsairs senaste uppsättning hörlurar är de första gjorda speciellt för Xbox, och som sådana har de Xbox Wireless för den enklaste formen av anslutning.

Det är parat med ett enormt imponerande ljud som klarar av riktigt solid bas och klara höga toner för att ge en riktigt väl avrundad upplevelse. Det är bra för både tävlingsspel och mer avslappnade spel.

De är också bekväma att bära och gjorda av solida högkvalitativa material, så även om de är lite dyra är de ett utmärkt val för Xbox-spelare.

How to choose an Xbox headset

There are almost literally countless headsets out there for most consoles now, and the Xbox range is no different. To help you narrow your options down, here are some points to consider before you make any decision.

Should you go wireless?

A big question with headsets at the moment is whether you want to be untethered by cables - all of our top picks are wireless, for a reason, but that doesn't mean you have to go with one of them. There are brilliant options like the Logitech Pro X which ditch wirelessness to get better sound quality for the price.

Given your controller likely has a 3.5mm headphone jack, you could easily go wired and have a great time. It's up to your personal taste.

Weight is all-important

How much a headset weighs might not be the most glamourous stat, but it plays a huge role in determining how comfortable it is to wear for long periods. If comfort is key for you, it'll be worth your time to compare weights so that you're not caught out if your headset ends up feeling like a chunky monkey.

How key is a microphone?

Some of us only need a headset so that we can play multiplayer games with our friends and not be left out of the voice chat channels. For others, it's all about the single-player immersion. If you're in the latter camp, then you'll probably want to ensure that you get a headset with either a retractable or removable microphone, so that you don't have something dangling in front of your face even when you're not using it.

What is Xbox Wireless?

Microsoft has made its own wireless connectivity standard for Xbox, in the form of Xbox Wireless, and it's brilliant when it's used. It means that your headset will connect to your console when it's powered on, without needing a dongle or any other accessories.

Not every headset uses it though, for a litany of reasons. So, while it's not a deal-breaker at all, it's worth paying attention to when you check out product listings.

How to pair an Xbox headset

It’s easy to forget but, when Microsoft released the Xbox One, its first controller didn’t have a 3.5mm headphone jack. This meant you had to use an adapter to connect a wired headset via the controller, and you might still have to if that’s the version of the controller you use. 

However, more recent editions of the controller, including the newest that comes with the Xbox Series X and Series S, have that all-important jack to let you plug in more easily. Finally, you might find that some wireless controllers use a dongle to connect without cables.

Another less common way of connecting, but arguably the ideal, is through Xbox Wireless – the same standard that Xbox’s own first-party controllers use to connect to your console.  This makes for the most solid connection, the easiest reconnecting, and has the added bonus of being guaranteed to work with the new consoles when they're out. 

In case a step-by-step guide is useful, though, follow these steps to connect your headset:

  1. If your headset is wired, plug it into either the headphone jack on your Xbox controller, or the Xbox One Stereo Headset Adapter to get game audio.
  2. If it's wireless, plug in any dongles provided to your Xbox and turn on the headset to pair.
  3. If it uses Xbox Wireless, press the pairing button on the front of your Xbox and wait for its logo to flash on and off. 
  4. Put your headset into pairing mode by following the manufacturer's instructions, then wait for the two devices to pair. When they have paired, you should see a headset logo to the top left of the Xbox dashboard, along with a battery indicator. 

With that out of the way, let’s dive in and look at some of our favourite headsets.

Mer om den här historien

Varje produkt i den här listan har testats i verkliga situationer, precis som du skulle använda den i ditt dagliga liv.

För Xbox-spelheadset betyder det att du använder det under en längre tid - inte bara för enspelartitlar utan även för multiplayer-sessioner. Vi bedömer alla delar av deras prestanda, från ljudkvalitet över olika genrer till mikrofonprestanda.

Lika viktigt är hur headsetet känns att bära, inte bara i början utan under längre sessioner och veckor efter första användningen, medan anslutning och användarvänlighet också är nyckeln. Om det inte går att lita på att headsetet förblir uppkopplat, eller om dess batteritid är under de annonserade nivåerna, kommer det att räknas mot det. Slutligen finns det den uppenbara frågan om pris - ett headset kanske låter riktigt gudomligt, men om det är oöverkomligt dyrt, har vi tagit hänsyn till det.

Som vi påpekar i alla våra köparguider är det omöjligt att leverera en uppsättning val som fungerar för alla typer av användare, men vi tar till oss ovanstående och åsikterna från experterna på Pocket-lint-teamet för att avgöra ett urval av Xbox-headset att rekommendera.

Vad vi alltid tenderar att undvika när vi sammanställer dessa val är djupgående spec-jämförelser och marknadsföringsjargong; vi vill bara ge en lättförståelig sammanfattning som ger dig en uppfattning om hur varje headset är att använda. Våra domar är kortfattade, men detta är enbart i korthetens intresse. Du kan vara säker på att alla sakerna på den här listan har testats fullständigt.
