The JBL Quantum One features powerful 50mm neodymium drivers, active-noise cancelling, 7.1 spatial surround sound with head tracking and solid software to back it all up. At 13.7 ounces, plus the force of the chat mixer weighing you down, the JBLQuantum One can feel like a burden to put on and take off. Despite that, the headset offers impressive features, making it one of the best gaming headsets you can buy.

The JBL Quantum One is a stealthily flashy gaming headset. It features simulated surround sound, programmable colored lighting, head motion tracking, and even active noise cancellation. The Quantum One's microphone sounds very good in a quiet room, but it can pick up some outside chatter. With the default Bass Boost preset, the Quantum One won't overwhelm you.

The JBL Quantum One provides studio-level sound at an affordable price. Interchangeable between the Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC. It's not quite perfect, but if you want wireless audio on every console you own and spatial audio on PC, the Quantum One is a great option.

Reviewers from Tomshardware have found the following[***]:
The flagship JBL Quantum One offers spatial or 3D audio, three connectivity options and RGB lighting controllable by software. Despite a whopping $300 price when it hits retailers on April 13, the Quantum One doesn't quite make a quantum leap in gaming performance. The Quantum One's uses hi-res certified 50mm dynamic drivers, but its crown jewel is its head tracking.

Pros[**]
  • 3D audio with head tracking
  • 3.5mm audio with RGB lighting
  • Comfortable earcups
Cons[**]
  • Doesn't work with PC, PS4, Nintendo Switch and smartphones
  • Head tracking isn't for everyone
