Halo Infinite's multiplayer mode is out now so it pays to have the best headset in order to get the competitive edge.
Headsets, as we all know, are great for hearing enemies on the battlefield, and while Halo is a little more run and gun than other titles, hearing what's going on around you can help to enhance your positional awareness...and could help save your skin!
There are a few things to look out for, such as comfort for longer sessions, audio quality of course, and noise isolation for both mic and ear-cups...and that's just the start of it.
To make life easier, we've done the research for you by taking a close look at specs, reviews and other additional features to compile what we think are some of the best headsets for Halo Infinite.
And it goes without saying, these will be great for immersing yourself in the now excellently reviewed Halo Infinite campaign too!
Let's get into it!

Best Wired Headset For Halo Infinite - ASTRO Gaming A40 TR
Manufacturer: Astro | Colour: Black/Red | Connectivity technology: Wired, 3.5mm jack | Compatability:PC, Xbox | Weight: 369g
If you're looking for a cracking wired headset to use with Halo Infinite, then look no further than the ASTRO Gaming A40 TR.
It's already marked itself out as one of our top picks for competitive gaming, and it's for good reason too, thanks to the fact this headset offers up balanced audio with what should be clear mids, sharp highs and a bass that isn't overwhelming.
Alongside this, the ASTRO Gaming A40 TR has the ability to be cosmetically modified to become a closed-back headset to bring with it what should be brilliant passive noise isolation - especially handy for when you need to focus on your game.
This headset also looks the part with some sharp and rugged design and is sure to be pretty comfortable thanks to plenty of padding.
A weight of 369g also reinforces the idea of this being quite a premium headset, too.
Best Wireless Gaming Headset For Halo Infinite - Steelseries Arctis 9X
Manufacturer: Steelseries | Colour: Black/Green | Connectivity technology: Xbox Wireless, Bluetooth | Compatability: PC, Xbox | Weight: 371g
For those wanting a little bit more freedom when gaming, the Steelseries Arctis 9X may just be the headset for you.
It's also made it as one of the best headsets for Xbox Series X in our view, which gives it some pretty good pedigree immediately. This comes alongside other standout features like a 20+ hour battery life so you can game for a good while without needing to charge the headset up.
Expect to find a premium construction too, with the Steelseries Arctis 9X being comprised of a steel headband to offer up some brilliant structural rigidity. You'll also find some fabric AirWeave ear cushions that Steelseries say can keep your ears cool and dry, even during the heat of battle.
As for audio performance, this headset should offer up some rich and clear audio performance alongside deep enough bass. It's also Windows Sonic surround compatible which can increase immersion thanks to virtual surround tech - this works on both PC and Xbox consoles.
The ClearCast mic should also feature plenty of clarity, making this headset a great choice for coordinating tactics with your teammates too, and dual connectivity with Xbox Wireless and Bluetooth helps to keep things convenient.
Best Razer Headset For Halo Infinite - Razer Kaira Pro
Manufacturer: Razer | Colour: Black/Green/White | Connectivity technology: Xbox Wireless, Bluetooth | Compatability: PC, Xbox, Mobile | Weight: 330g
We've featured some of the best Razer headsets on pretty much all our gaming headset lists, and the Razer Kaira Pro joins the popular canon by providing some cool design and what looks to be brilliant performance, too.
With the Halo Infinite version of the headset (pictured), you get this understated green outer shell, complete with scratch marks across the headset and the Halo emblem in blue on each earcup that definitely makes it look the part, alongside some classy Razer Chroma RGB lighting.
The Razer Kaira Pro isn't a slouch when it comes to its feature set, either. You'll find Razer's Triforce 50mm drivers bundled in here that should serve up some powerful audio with plenty of punchy bass.
There's also support for Windows Sonic here - Microsoft's own virtual surround sound offering that should definitely increase the immersion factor The headset's HyperClear mic will also be handy for offering clear vocal performance when you're deep in conversation.
Dual connectivity with Xbox Wireless and Bluetooth 5.0 is also pretty handy, as is the Kaira Pro's quoted 15 hours of battery life with the Chroma lighting turned all the way up, and 20 hours with it off.
Best Official Headset For Halo Infinite - Microsoft Xbox Series X Wireless Headset
Manufacturer: Microsoft | Colour: Black | Connectivity technology: Xbox Wireless | Compatability: PC, Xbox, Mobile | Weight: 312g
The official Xbox Series X Wireless Headset is a brilliant choice for Halo Infinite, especially if you're looking to stay fully immersed within the Xbox ecosystem.
Compared to other gaming headsets out there, this one offers a minimalistic design that reminds us of some of the best wireless headphones out there. Don't let that design fool you though, as there's also loads of padding on this headset to allow for some fantastic passive noise isolation.
If it's immersion you're after, then the Xbox Wireless Headset doesn't disappoint on this front either with support for spatial audio options like Windows Sonic, Dolby Atmos and DTS allowing for you to truly tune in with your game.
The on-board dial media controls also allow you to choose how much you want to hear game audio above, say, voice chat, so you can choose to either have a balance between the two, or go fully into Halo Infinite if you so wish.
The headset's 40mm drivers should also provide some properly thumping low-end rumble, and for those wanting to customise the audio profile, the Xbox Accessories app bundled on the console offers up what seems to be infinite possibilities.
Best Budget Headset For Halo Infinite - HyperX Cloud Stinger
Manufacturer: HyperX | Colour: Black | Connectivity technology: Wired - 3.5mm jack | Compatability: PC, Xbox, Mobile | Weight: 275g
If you're on a budget but don't want to compromise on decent audio and a lightweight frame, then the HyperX Cloud Stinger will be a cracking choice.
It's one of the best headsets under 50 on the market today, making it a fantastic choice for Halo Infinite gameplay, alongside key features such as powerful 50mm drivers to offer up some punchy audio and a wired connection through the standard 3.5mm jack.
In addition, the HyperX Cloud Stinger also features a lightweight frame with a total weight of just 275g and plenty of padding which should make this quite the comfortable gaming headset for those long sessions.
Its design is mean and sharp but also pleasing to the eye and there are some other nice creature comforts such as a clear, swivel to mute microphone and plenty of onboard media controls that should be easily within reach, including a conveniently placed volume roller.
