The Xbox Wireless Headset is a gaming headset designed for Xbox One and Xbox Series S|X consoles. The manufacturer previously released the Xbox Stereo Headset, which is a wired headset, and this is their first wireless pair of headphones. It has Xbox Wireless technology built-in and is designed to connect to your Xbox console without a cable or dongle. That said, it's also fully compatible with PCs if you use its USB-A to USB-C cable, and it supports Bluetooth, which makes it easy to connect with your phone. It's equipped with a boom mic, has gaming-oriented onboard controls, and works with companion software that has sound customization features.

Our Verdict

5.2 Neutral Sound

The Xbox Wireless Headset is disappointing for neutral sound. Out-of-the-box, these headphones have a bass-heavy sound profile that can overwhelm your mixes. They're also very prone to inconsistent bass and treble delivery, and their passive soundstage is perceived as closed-off and unnatural, which doesn't make for a very immersive audio experience. Luckily, you can customize them using the graphic EQ or presets to help achieve a more neutral sound profile.

Pros
  • Graphic EQ and EQ presets available.
Cons
  • Inconsistent bass and treble delivery.
  • Poor passive soundstage.
  • No call or music controls.
6.4 Commute/Travel

The Xbox Wireless Headset is passable for commute and travel. These headphones aren't designed for this purpose and have a gamer-centric design. They don't have onboard call or music controls, can't fold into a more compact size, and don't come with a carrying case. They also block out virtually none of the rumble from bus or plane engines, and they struggle to reduce mid-range sound like ambient chatter. On the upside, they have a long-lasting battery performance and are comfortable to wear for a few hours at a time.

Pros
  • Comfortable and well-built design.
  • Great battery performance.
Cons
  • No call or music controls.
  • Poor noise isolation.
6.7 Sports/Fitness

The Xbox Wireless Headset is okay for sports and fitness. These headphones aren't designed for this purpose as they don't have a very breathable or portable design. While they shouldn't move around on your head if you're sitting down, they can fall off with moderate physical activity. They also don't have an IP rating for water resistance.

Pros
  • Comfortable and well-built design.
Cons
  • No call or music controls.
6.5 Office

The Xbox Wireless Headset is just okay for office use. These well-built headphones have a comfortable fit and deliver over 19 hours of continuous playback time. However, they won't block out ambient chatter around you, and they aren't the most breathable, so they could make your ears warm when worn for long periods.

Pros
  • Comfortable and well-built design.
  • Great battery performance.
Cons
  • No call or music controls.
  • Poor noise isolation.
6.5 Wireless Gaming

The Xbox Wireless Headset is alright for wireless gaming. These headphones have a bass-heavy sound profile that some may find a bit overwhelming. Luckily, their companion software offers a graphic EQ and presets so that you can customize their sound. They're also comfortable and have over 19 hours of continuous playback time. Their boom mic does a great job recording your voice, meaning you won't have problems being understood. However, they have high non-Bluetooth wireless latency, which could cause audio lag issues during gameplay. If you want to use them on PC via non-Bluetooth wireless, you need to purchase an adapter separately.

Pros
  • Graphic EQ and EQ presets available.
  • Comfortable and well-built design.
  • Great recording quality.
Cons
  • Inconsistent bass and treble delivery.
  • Poor passive soundstage.
  • High non-Bluetooth wireless latency.
6.7 Wired Gaming

The Xbox Wireless Headset is fair for wired gaming. These headphones can connect to Xbox consoles and PCs with their USB-C to USB-A cable. While some users may find its bass-heavy sound profile a bit overwhelming, you can tweak their sound using their graphic EQ or presets. Their boom mic also does a great job recording your voice, although it struggles more to separate speech from ambient sound in noisy environments. Unfortunately, their passive soundstage isn't very immersive, and they're prone to inconsistent bass and treble delivery.

Pros
  • Graphic EQ and EQ presets available.
  • Comfortable and well-built design.
Cons
  • Inconsistent bass and treble delivery.
  • Poor passive soundstage.
6.8 Phone Calls

The Xbox Wireless Headset is fair for phone calls. Its boom mic has a great recording quality, so your voice sounds natural and clear. However, it struggles to separate your voice from ambient noise in moderately loud environments like a subway or busy street. The headphones also have poor noise isolation performance, making it hard to hear the person on the other end of the line.

Pros
  • Comfortable and well-built design.
  • Great recording quality.
Cons
  • No call or music controls.
  • Poor noise isolation.
  • 5.2 Neutral Sound
  • 6.4 Commute/Travel
  • 6.7 Sports/Fitness
  • 6.5 Office
  • 6.5 Wireless Gaming
  • 6.7 Wired Gaming
  • 6.8 Phone Calls

Differences Between Sizes And Variants

The Xbox Wireless Headset comes in one color variant: 'Black'. If you come across another variant, please let us know in the discussions, and we'll update our review.

Compared To Other Headphones

The Xbox Wireless Headset is a wireless gaming headset designed for use with Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S consoles. These comfortable and well-built headphones have Xbox Wireless built-in and support Bluetooth for more casual use. Ηowever, they have higher latency via Xbox Wireless than headphones like the Razer Kaira Pro Wireless for Xbox or the SteelSeries Arctis 9X Wireless, which could create audio syncing issues when you're gaming. Unlike the Razer or the SteelSeries, they also offer mic and audio support with Xbox and PC via USΒ and have low latency when used this way. While some users may find their especially bass-heavy sound profile overwhelming, their companion software offers a graphic EQ and presets, meaning you can customize their sound to your liking.


Check out our recommendations for the best headsets for the Xbox Series X|S, the best Xbox One headsets, and the best gaming headsets under $100.

They also have a channel mixing dial, a better overall boom mic performance, and are compatible with Xbox Accessories software, which offers a graphic EQ and presets to help you adjust their sound. However, some users may prefer the Stereo's wired 1/8" TRRS design. The ear cups are also more breathable.

Sony PULSE 3D Wireless

The Sony PULSE 3D Wireless and the Xbox Wireless Headset are two gaming headphones and depending on your usage, you may prefer one over the other. The Sony have a more neutral default sound profile, which some users may prefer, and they can be used on PC, PS4, and PS5 consoles with full compatibility using either their analog cable or USB wireless dongle. They also have low non-Bluetooth latency. You can customize their sound using their graphic EQ and presets too, but this feature is only available on updated PS5 consoles.

The Xbox Wireless Headset has a sleek and minimalist look that's very similar in design to the wired Xbox Stereo Headset. It's mostly made of black plastic with green accents on the ear cups to match the Xbox's style. While the mic can't retract or detach, you can wrap it around the ear cups when not in use.

The Xbox Wireless Headset is comfortable. The ear cups have a roomy fit, and their faux leather padding feels good on the skin. The headphones also clamp well on the ears, so you won't feel too much fatigue when wearing them for long gaming marathons. However, the ear cups don't have any range of motion, so you can't adjust their angle and position for a more comfortable fit.

The Xbox Wireless Headset has an alright control scheme. It lacks call and music controls but has gaming-oriented controls that are very easy to use. There's a dial on the left ear cup for channel mixing and one on the right earcup for volume control. The dials have stops at their max and min settings, and the channel mixing dial clicks at the middle point, so you know when your game and chat audio are balanced. There's also a mic mute button on the left ear cup with a light to indicate when the mic is on, as well as a green button for powering the headphones on and off and for pairing. There are different chimes for on, off, and pairing, so you can tell what command you've registered.

Breathability
Avg.Temp.Difference 7 °C

The Xbox Wireless Headset is passably breathable. They have an over-ear design, so they trap in a bit of heat, which could make you sweat. While this could be a bigger problem if you're wearing them while running, it won't be too troublesome if you're gaming.

The Xbox Wireless Headset has sub-par portability. These headphones are bulky and can't fold into a more compact format, which is normal for gaming headphones. They also require an Xbox Wireless adapter if you want to wirelessly connect them to your PC without using Bluetooth, and it isn't included in the box. You can still use their USB-A to USB-C cable for audio.

Build Quality

The Xbox Wireless Headset has a good build quality. The headband has a plastic coating and is reinforced with a metal band, and the headband and earcups have faux leather padding. The headphones feel sturdy and should survive a few accidental drops and bumps without breaking. However, the yokes have very little range of motion, and the ear cups don't swivel. They also creak slightly, most noticeably on the right side, and the dials make a faint grinding sound. It may not affect every unit, so if you own these headphones, please let us know your experience in the discussions below.

Stability

The Xbox Wireless Headset has decent stability. It should stay on while you're playing video games but isn't intended for use during workouts and is likely to fall off your head if you make exaggerated movements.

Treble Amount
-3.46 dB

The Xbox Wireless Headset has an extremely bass-heavy sound profile. Using the default 'Game EQ' setting, which is the flattest EQ, these headphones deliver a very thumpy, boomy sound that some users may find overwhelming. Luckily, they have a couple of EQ presets as well as a graphic EQ that you can use to tweak their sound to your liking. If you're looking for a more neutral sound profile or if you would like to see how the other EQ presets stack up against the default setting, you can see a comparison graph here. For over-ear headphones, we also do a sweep with humans and match the crossfade. Anything below 600-900 Hz are human measurements. If you prefer a less thumpy sound, you can also try tweaking the bass levels using a custom EQ preset with settings like those displayed in Custom 1 or Custom 2.

The Xbox Wireless Headset has disappointing frequency response consistency. Audio delivery can vary depending on fit, positioning, and seal, so you're likely to experience deviations in bass and treble. You may notice a drop in bass if you have thick hair or wear glasses.

The Xbox Wireless Headset has satisfactory mid accuracy. There's still a bit of overemphasis coming from the bass range and into the low mids, so if your game audio has lyrics, like the song Time Fall by CHVRCHES from Death Stranding, the vocals get a bit muddied by the overemphasized bass. The rest of the range is well-balanced and neutral, though, so vocals and lead instruments are still present, detailed, and accurate.

The Xbox Wireless Headset has mediocre peaks and dips performance. There's a large peak throughout the bass range, adding thump, punch, and significant boom to your audio, making it sound muddy. A dip in the low to mid-mids further thins out and nudges vocals and lead instruments to the back of the mix. Another dip in the low-treble veils the upper harmonics of vocals and lead instruments, while a peak in the mid-treble makes sibilants harsh and piercing.

The Xbox Wireless Headset has a great imaging performance. The weighted group delay falls mostly below the audibility threshold, resulting in tight bass and transparent treble. The L/R drivers are also well-matched in amplitude and phase response, which helps ensure objects like voices and footsteps are accurately placed within the stereo image. However, the drivers have a mismatched phase response that's audible with frequencies from the mid-bass to high-mid. It's particularly noticeable on the right side and with vocals and can create holes and inaccuracies in the stereo image. Imaging can vary between units and can indicate a manufacturer's quality control and ergonomics.

The headset is also equipped with an auto-off timer to help conserve battery life when you're not using it, and you can use it while charging. If you're connected to a device via Bluetooth and use its USB-A to USB-C cable to connect to your PC or Xbox, you can play audio from your device and PC or Xbox console at the same time. However, if you're using Xbox Wireless on your PC or Xbox and plug in the headset to charge, the PC overrides the wireless audio, and the USB audio takes priority.

It has low latency on iOS and Android, so you shouldn't notice any audio syncing issues if you use them to watch a video on your phone. Its latency on PC is much higher, though, and it could interrupt your gaming experience. However, some apps compensate for latency, so your real-world experience may vary.
