I've been looking at the Arctis SteelSeries 9x for a while now due to its ability for audio and microphone on Xbox Series X and PC via Bluetooth, and audio (only but no microphone) via Playstation 4/5. The discount finally pushed me to buy one for myself.

Are there any Xbox Series X headphones with a mic that don't have a shitty bass response?

Quote from jenesuispasbava :
RIP, bought one from Best Buy last week for $200.

Great headset: does Xbox wireless with console and PC, simultaneous Bluetooth (I use it for listening to podcasts from the iPad when playing on the Xbox), and has a 3.5mm jack if your computer has neither Xbox wireless nor Bluetooth.

Two issues: charging is via micro-USB and not USB-C, and wireless range with the Series X (and possibly all Xboxes) is pretty terrible - works fine when I'm on the couch some 10ft from the Xbox and TV, but if I move to the kitchen about 20ft away I get interruptions in audio. Even Bluetooth has better range and consistency.
Buy this with the discount and when it comes in, take it back to Best Buy!

Quote from jmr2198 :
General consensus is that the 9x are worse than the new 7x, and that even on the 7x, which have less technical issues, and will work on both the Xbox Series X and PS5, the build quality is just awful, and for the few that have gotten the 7x, they are just falling apart. See reddit steelseries sub, and you will see what I am talking about. Many people with the 7x, reporting that the headphones just fall apart during regular use, still under warranty (the 7x just came out), and steelseries is refusing to replace or fix their headphones.

Add to that that the 7x are only 40mm drivers, that they have fairly weak bass response. I don't know why they would just not have made them 50mm drivers.
I've had these since April, got them for 135 and they're by far the best headset I've ever owned. What do you mean by "they are worse"? I've had zero issues with quality in any capacity, genuinely curious if I should be looking for or expecting issues.

I will clarify that I sometimes have issues connecting to my one x, but I had issues connecting to headsets wired to my controller in the past as well. I connect via Xbox dongle instead of BT on pc and it works fantasticly.

I bought this headset to my teenage son and it died after 3-4 months. Don't know what the hell he did to it, but I know its dead. $200 on amazon. I could've used that money for hookers and alcohol. 😢

If my primary use is a headset for work from home and don't have a console, is this good? Want to use with my laptop and Bluetooth for my cell phone. Want a mic that doesn't pick up to much background noise. Don't care about bass but want good sound quality for the headphones. Want comfort to wear most of the day. Thanks. Was thinking the arctis 3 bluetooth before seeing this.

How do these compare to the Turtle Beach Stealth 700 first gen. Had them for a spell and since using them on my series x , I get alot of crackling . They still sound good ,but that crackling does getting annoying.

If you don't have a console; get the Arctis3 with Bluetooth instead. They are basically the same for what you are looking for and should work on PC or MacOS. The mic is pretty good and there is a red light on the boom the lets you know when you are muted.

If you are willing to spend the money and really are only interested in a work headset; maybe look at the Jabra Evolve 75. That's what I use and it's great. You can connect two Bluetooth devices at the same time. Listen to music on your phone while you are dealing with meetings and the mic quality is top notch. It also has great active noise canceling; but I prefer to hear what's going on around me so I don't use it.

Thanks. I like the jabra evolve 75 but don't think I want to spend that much so currently thinking between:
Razer Kaira Pro Wireless

SteelSeries Arctis 3 2019 Edition Wireless

My friend uses the Arctis headset for work and he says he likes it. I have an Arctis 9x; but I haven't really used it for work and haven't given it much attention since I bought them. I can say they are comfortable to wear and the batteries last a very long time. I also like how the Arctis look, which is a personal thing but nice for me in my profession to not look like I'm wearing a gaming headset at work.

Good luck. Your top three all look like good options.

My recent experience with Steelseries was lackluster at best.

While the headsets offer a great sound range with games, it is ok with music. It does offer a 4 selectable EQ that you can preprogram from their Windows app and used to the phone. It helps.

The bluetooth range is decent and so is the xbox, but it not reliable beyond 20 feet. You can use with PC using cable or XBOX Windows Adapter (range is poor). I had random hard disconnects (very annoying) using either radios.

The BIG problem (super negative) is the design of the joints that hold the headband to the earpiece. This is a serious weak point, and the major cause for warrant issues (from reading posts). Support is via email, web case, or chat. Expect to provide high resolution pictures, serial number and proof of purchase. Replacement is via an email code waiving the cost of a like headset.

Honestly trying to decide between arctis 9, TB gen 2 and black shark v2 pro. I wanna get the best for GAMING with great surround sound, hearing footsteps, pinpointing gunshots. Gotta have the Bluetooth feature. Maybe drop x sennheiser too.

Really wish Astro would've been ready for next gen release with a fully compatible mix amp instead of having to buy a $40 adapter separately.
not sure if you knew but if you undate fireware on whatever you have it works with just the usb now. so you dont need that adapter
