Getting a gaming headset for your console requires a lot of researching and one needs to take into consideration several factors such as price, comfort and compatibility.
Some headsets come pre-packed with an adapter, whereas others require you to purchase one. Since the headset is used for a prolonged period, gamers need to consider its weight and utility for long gaming sessions. Apart from the fact that the headset sits comfortably, one also needs to keep in mind the battery support offered.
Factors such as if the mic is good and has noise canceling, the clarity the headset offers are also important criteria.
