Microsoft has introduced a wireless headset for Xbox One and PC consoles – Xbox Wireless Headset. Completely wireless, the accessory is notable for its spatial audio and long-lasting battery. The device is compatible with both Xbox and computers and cell phones and will reach consumers next month.
Inside, there are 40mm speakers with a frequency range of 20 Hz – 20 kHz and an impedance of 32 ohms. The headset supports Windows Sonic, Dolby Atmos, and DTS Headphone X spatial audio protocols.
The compatibility is a must for new games. TV shows and films with such sound are also a pleasure to watch. Next, what else do gamers need? Nice microphone.
The Xbox Wireless Headset features dual-beam microphone elements that focus on the user’s speech. There are also noise reduction features and its setting.
Another exciting feature: if the user is silent, the microphone is automatically turned off. If you don’t trust automation, you can use the physical button the old-fashioned way.
The wireless headset has a black look with some green details. Besides, with Bluetooth connectivity, the device does not depend on any wires except during charging. The accessory weighs 312 grams.
The ear cushions are made of polyurethane, the frame with a metal headband, and the possibility of adjustment. The microphone can be removed if necessary.
The cups have scroll wheels that control the volume. The headphones look good: there are some gaming notes, but not full of them. The concept is somewhat reminiscent of Razer models but without the torn-eyed RGB lighting.
The headset will work up to 15 hours on a single charge. A 15-minute charge will give you four hours of use, and a full charge will take three hours.
Price and Availability
Currently in the pre-sale phase, the Xbox Wireless Headset will be available in the United States from March 16, 2021. There, the suggested price of the headset is $ 99.99.
