I often complain about “gamer” aesthetics, but in the case of the JBL Quantum One, the fuzzy design and lighting make it worth it. This headset is very expensive, but it’s for people who have a complete gaming desktop setup and want the best, most immersive sound while gaming (or listening to music while they work, like me). First and foremost, the sound is just incredible. Broad, elaborate soundstage and deep deep rumbly bass make it perfect for video games or any type of media.

At this price, you’ll find a few more features on top of the great audio Dio. These headphones provide spatial audio audio, so it tracks the position of your head when you set them up with JBL software. If you remove it from your computer, the volume goes down. Spatial audio Dio also makes for a killer, sometimes exciting, gaming experience. It also has active sound cancellation and a super-clear boom mic. The only thing I don’t like? Exterior design. If it had been a little more understated, these would have been ubiquitous, my-everyday headphones.

Corded only. Works with PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series S / X, Switch and PC. Spatial audio Dio on PC only.
