Steelseries Arctis 9X
This headset doesn’t need a USB dongle to pair with your console, and using Bluetooth, it can be used on both your Xbox and a mobile device so that you can take calls while gaming. Or alternatively, you can use it with any Bluetooth-enabled device, such as Nintendo Switch, making this a multifunctional and versatile headset. The SteelSeries Arctis range–especially higher-end models like the 9X–offers a good mix of mid to high sounds that have a crisp delivery, and the headset itself can easily be worn for several hours thanks to its plush design and superb headband design.
The earcups have a generous amount of padding, and the two-piece headband design–an adjustable elastic band reinforced by steel–significantly reduces head strain in our experience. Out of the box, you’ll get up to 20 hours of battery life from a full charge, and for games where teamwork is essential, it has a bidirectional microphone that allows your voice to sound clear.
