Mobile Gaming Headset
For full immersion, a gaming headset is absolutely essential. If you have a mobile with Bluetooth, then the best route to go here is with a Bluetooth-enabled headset.
Although more expensive than a wired connection, this allows full portability with no worries of getting wires tangled. The best on the market currently is the Steel Series Arctis 9X. It has a battery that will last you 20+ hours, can be used on your Xbox, and has a noise-cancelling microphone for improved clarity.
For a more budget option, you can opt for a wired connection. Here, it is a good idea to aim for something with a 3.5mm audio jack. The best option here at the moment is the Razer Kraken X. It is super lightweight for those gaming sessions on the move.
