The HUHD HW-398M is a great headset for gamers on a budget. They’re stylish, modern, wireless and built-well, making them one of the best low-cost Xbox One headset options.
It has fairly large ear cups, making them perfect for pretty much all shapes and sizes. They’re soft, extremely comfortable and are designed to better retain their shape than other headsets at a similar price point. Sound quality is also exceptionally good considering this headsets low cost, making you hard-pressed to find anything that’s better than this for the money.
The microphone is well-built and completely detachable, making it great for packing away when not in use. However, when attached, the microphone does seem to stick out a little akwardly, which can effect how clearly your voice comes through as it struggles to pick it up as well as other Xbox One headsets.
Designed with the Xbox One in mind, the Polk Striker ZX offers is an impressive gaming headset considering it’s price point, offering performance and quality that is up there with some of the higher end Xbox headsets currently available on the market.
The Striker ZX’s microphone is a bendable, maneuverable, retractable and omni-directional boom mic. It’s very good at picking up sound, which may see you getting into the habit of muting it frequently, and slides back over the left ear cup for easy storage after use. The mic could extend a little further, however, it’s certainly good enough to be picked up loud and clear when playing, with extremely good quality and clarity. The sound from the headphones is also of very good quality, with the games we tried it out with sounding absolutely great, giving you a great immersive experience.
