Specifically the Xbox Series X or Xbox Series S — which is where the new official Xbox Wireless Headset comes into its own. It may not be as versatile as we hoped or offer up the sort of sound quality that you’d consider truly impressive — it’s hard to look past the value you get here for $150 AUD.

A snippet.

In terms of hardware the out-of-the-box sound is the sort of bass-heavy response you find in the more affordable side of the gaming audio spectrum, which does impact the clarity and the impact of the rest of the frequency range. It’s here, even after messing about with equalisers and profiles, where the Xbox Wireless Headset features sound best described as good for the price point — if a little flat. And in some cases, which we’ll dive into a bit later on, impressive.

Outside of the core audio response the Xbox Wireless Headset is again, all Xbox. Which, sounds a little redundant but it highlights the lack of true versatility – device wise – with Microsoft’s offering. Not that the intended use is to connect this up to a competing console, but the lack of a 3.5mm option or a dedicated PC-dongle paired with the not that great Bluetooth performance keep this as something you’d only really use with an actual Xbox console out of the box. Again, redundant — but when connected to an Xbox Series X or Xbox Series S, the Xbox Wireless Headset begins to shine.
