Call of Duty is going back to black this year with Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War! The latest instalment in the annual shooter franchise is scheduled for release on November 13 for both Xbox One and PS4. 

The game is a direct sequel to the original Black Ops game released back in 2010 and will feature the series trademark fast-paced multiplayer as well as the always-popular Zombies mode. 

To help you get the drop on your enemies every time, we’ve put together our top picks for the best headsets for the Xbox One and Playstation 4, from budget picks to premium options.

    The BEST headset

    Logitech G Pro X

    The Logitech G Pro X has to be one of the most comfortable gaming headsets on the market, which is a key feature that separates the best headsets from the rest. 

    There’s so much more to this headset than its wearability though, the tournament-level mic means your squadmates will never have trouble understanding you again and the PRO-G 50-mm drivers mean you’ll hear everything from the loudest gunfire to the quietest footsteps. 

    This headset has been designed with pro players in mind, and it delivers a professional experience.

    The best budget headset

    HyperX Cloud Stinger

    If you’re after a new headset for Black Ops Cold War but budget is a key concern, then fear not you don’t have to break the bank to get a quality product. 

    The HyperX Cloud Stinger Core offers a surprisingly solid audio experience, and unlike some budget headsets, it’s comfortable to wear even during long periods of play. 

    The very chunky earcups give the whole headset a pleasingly rugged feel as well.

    The best wireless headset

    SteelSeries Arctis 1

    If wires are a deal-breaker for you then the SteelSeries Arctis 1 is a truly spectacular wireless headset. 

    With a detachable ClearCast noise-cancelling mic you’ll teammates will hear every order you give, and the headset features the same drivers featured in the award-winning Arctis 7 headset giving you a clear edge over enemy players. 

    If you’re playing Black Ops Cold War on Xbox make sure to grab the Xbox variant here.

    The best chat headset

    Turtle Beach Recon

    If you’ve got an advanced speaker setup at home, or just solely want a headset to talk to your friends, then the Turtle Beach Recon is the way to go. 

    Easily plugged into the headphone jack on the bottom of the PS4 or Xbox One controller, this headset will allow you to strategise with your squadmates while still enjoying the benefits of your home audio setup. 

    Plus, the single ear-cup has an open design so you can still hear game audio in both ears.

    The best PlayStation headset

    Gold Wireless

    The PlayStation Gold headset is not only one of the slickest looking headsets on the market, it’s 7.1 virtual surrounded sound makes it a headset that might just make the difference between getting a kill or being killed. 

    There are two mics hidden within the earcups of this headset, so you can talk to your team without needing a physical mic hanging in front of your face. 

    Plus, when you’re not playing COD on your PlayStation, it can also be used on a PC or even an Xbox.

    The best Xbox headset

    Turtle Beach Stealth 600

    Turtle Beach is one of the most well-known manufacturers of headsets out there, and the Stealth 600 headset is one of its finest creations. 

    We love the flip-up mic that actually integrates into the headset, which makes it super convenient to store when the headset isn’t in use, plus the high-quality audio experience we’ve come to expect from a Turtle Beach headset is very much present here.
