Just in case it’s escaped you, Microsoft have been a little bit more understanding regarding the non-OEM headset users community. This is good news because it means that you’ll be able to use a lot of different headsets with the Xbox One. Having said that, it’ll still be best to check out which are the most compatible.
It’s probably best for users to buy a new set so you don’t have to go through the process of connecting up to the unit only to experience a poor audio performance. If you agree this is the best plan, then you may wish to look at the following headsets which are compatible.
Turtle Beach Ear Force XO Seven
Turtle Beach has over 35 years of solid experience behind them when it comes to audio accessories for different types of gaming consoles and other devices. They’ve really taken their standard to the next level with the Ear Force XO Seven. The quality of sound from these headphones is very high, particularly for gaming and they provide you with the option of customizing them to your own appearance and design. It’s also possible to swap the speaker plates.
If you’re the type of person who is never away from your mobile device, the Ear Force XO Seven will be a really good companion too. This is because the headset is fully compatible with mobile devices. The microphone is detachable so you can remove it if you wish. These are noise cancelling headphones which limit outside noises so they perform better when using services such as Skype and are better for concentrating on games. They deliver a really crisp, clear audio sound.
Turtle Beach Ear Force XO Four
These are another excellent model from Turtle Beach. The Ear Force XO Four is really a stripped down basic version of the XO Seven. What you get is a headset that is just as good as high-end models available on the market, but at a very affordable price. If cost is important to you then the XO Four may be a good choice.
On the downside, because this headset is cheaper, it doesn’t have all the customizing features you find on high-end devices such as the XO Seven. There are, however, some really good features such as compatibility with mobile devices and a detachable microphone. They’re also noise cancelling headphones and the surround sound is excellent which makes the Turtle Beach Ear Force XO Four a good choice.
Polk Audio 4Shot Headphones
Polk Audio’s 4Shot Headphone are really one step ahead of the rest in some ways. Namely because they have an adapter included in the package which will let you directly connect to the Xbox One’s controller. It’s probably also worth mentioning that Polk Audio spent an enormous amount of time to find the gaming industry’s top rated and best audio specialists to design this headset.
Spending time seeking out the best specialists resulted in a perfect collaboration between two groups which resulted in the superb design and quality of the 4Shot Headphone. The really good thing about this is that Polk Audio didn’t only concentrate on sound quality but the design and comfort is also important. These are very comfortable headphones which can be worn for extended periods during marathon gaming sessions.
There’s a look at just three headsets which are compatible with the Xbox One. Any of them would be a good choice as we believe they are some of the best when it comes to sound quality, design and comfort.
