    What would yall recommend for a headset for the xbox one? Basically I am looking for headphones for RDR2 and future games. "surround Sound" effect with atmos or something would be nice. I got the Lucidsound LS35X's but they keep cutting in and out like it is losing wireless connection. I have read that a firmware update helps this but I cannot get the firmware update to work bc the firmware updater is PC only and I have a macbook and I still can't get it to see the headset through parrallel's. I am still trying to find a PC to do the update but if I have to take these back, what headphones would yall recommend?

    I don't know anything about this really. But I believe my brother and a friend have both used Turtle Beach headsets. They may have similar PC firmware though, not sure.

    The old post disapprovingly in my alt accounts thread with my real account so people don't suspect it's me.

    Got these about 6 months ago and they’re pretty awesome. Wireless set with 7.1 surround sound. Comfortable and I’ve never even had the battery get low on me.

    I like to buy from bestbuy and get the warranty too. Have four kids and they like to destroy my stuff

    Get the cheapest ones possible from Walmart so everyone else can hear everything going on in your house while you play and ask very loudly if anyone else has a mic. That is always a popular decision.

    I have Astro A-40s with the additional mix amp pro. They’re great. Around $250 I think.

    I use ear buds cuz I hate wearing huge headsets. I wish companies would start designing ear buds more specific to gaming but idk what that would entail

    Plantronics are usually the best bang for your buck brand on the market.

    Got the backbeat pros and eventually backbeat pro 2s and I’ll never overpay for Bose/Sony

    Did you ever have Astro A40's or A50's? I've had A40's since the end of the 360 era and they still work great for me but I have been looking at those for a while because the cups look similar to Astros which are very comfortable to me.

    I haven’t, but I’ve used my brother’s A-40s before. These are real comfortable, but most comfortable set I’ve had is the Hyper X cloudcore.

    Post made me think of Arthur saying his horse commands like “it’s okay guuurl” to Alexa and I chuckled.
