Design of the Xbox Wireless Headset

If the Xbox Wireless Headset gaming headphones have one thing in common, it’s that, in addition to being easy to use with Xbox, they’re a nightmare to use on other platforms such as PC.

At 310g, it is a touch hefty for an all-plastic headset but not so heavy that it presents difficulties. Instead, the Xbox Wireless Headset is quite snug. The ear pads are thick and wrapped in plush leather, providing a good seal, but the head is quite tight.

The circular side panels of the Microsoft Xbox Wireless Headset operate as knobs to manage game/chat balance and headphone volume. Along the bottom corner of the left earphone, there are additional controls for connecting and muting the microphone.

In addition, this headset comes with an app if you’re playing on PC. The Xbox Accessories software is meant to help set up the Xbox controller for use with a PC, but it also provides a limited set of options for the Xbox Wireless Headset.

Audio Quality

The sound quality of the Microsoft Xbox Wireless Headset is about average for a gaming headset, with fairly accurate high-range sound and significantly increased bass and midrange sounds.

The improved mid-range output means that nobody’s voice is lost, even though high-range sounds can be difficult to hear in bass-heavy situations.

In the game, such frequency responses make the sounds of explosions and gunfire much louder than it would otherwise be. However, those sounds are louder, the piercing aspects should still be heard.

In addition, this improved mid-range reaction should guarantee that communication or voice chat between players is finally recovered in the heat of battle.

Battery life

According to Microsoft, the Xbox Headset can last up to 15 hours on a single charge. Not the longest on the market, but not bad.


For wireless gaming, the Xbox Headset is superb. These headphones provide bass-heavy sound quality that some people may find too much. Fortunately, its associated software includes visual EQ and presets for personalizing their sound.

They are also snug and have over 19 hours of play time. Their boom mic records your voice well so you can be easily understood.

However, they’ve substantial non-Bluetooth wireless latency, which can cause audio lag during gameplay. You will need to buy an adapter individually if you wish to use them on a PC via non-Bluetooth wireless.
