If you’re hankering for a wireless headset to use for your new Xbox Series X|S console, Microsoft has got you covered.
Xbox announces its official Xbox Wireless Headset which delivers “best-in-class audio and chat performance, outstanding design and comfort, and unique experiences that are tailored for each gamer”.
Here’s the breakdown:
- Supports Windows Sonic, Dolby Atmos, and DTS Headphone: X for “audio precision”.
- Dual beamforming microphone elements that focus on speech audio vs. surrounding sound, as well as voice isolation.
- Lightweight headphone design, ultra-soft large earcups made of polyurethane leather, meaning it’ll be comfortable to wear.
- Supports Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, and Windows 10 PCs, as well as connects to mobile devices via Bluetooth.
- Lets you customize audio settings and controls via the Xbox Accessories app on supported devices.
- 15-hour battery life; 30 minutes of charging will provide it 4 hours of battery life.
How much for this, you may ask? The Xbox Wireless Headset will cost you US$99.99 and will be available on 16th March. It looks great from these shots & the accompanying promo video, but the real test is how it feels and how it’ll hang onto our ears and head, and whether it’ll be super-comfortable for 8-hours of [insert favourite FPS multiplayer game].
Me? I’m always keeping an eye out for upcoming cans to hear gaming and music audio from; let’s hope these deliver when they arrive this March.
