Xbox One does not include a headset in the box

Microsoft’s Xbox One headset will not be included with the Xbox One hardware.

The one-ear mono headset and microphone will be seen as an essential purchase for online multiplayer users, but will have to be purchased on top of the £429 console.

Microsoft has, however, pointed out that Kinect includes an integrated microphone, meaning that online voice communication will at least be possible.

Note that Xbox One headsets will include a proprietary connection, Ars Technica reports, meaning that standard headphones will not be usable without an adapter.

PS4 will include a mono earbud and microphone in the box. The current 250GB Xbox 360 does include a headset whereas the 4GB SKU does not.
