Microsoft launches a new $ 99 Xbox Wireless Headset next month. It is the first wireless Xbox headset since the Xbox 360 days, and it is designed to connect to Xbox One and Xbox Series X / S consoles, PCs and mobile devices via Bluetooth.
Xbox Wireless Headset design enhances almost every aspect of the basic Xbox One Stereo and Wired Chat headphones currently available. Microsoft has relied on the work of Surface Headphones to add similar rotating earcup discs that allow you to adjust volume and game / audio chat balance.
This new Xbox Wireless Headset is also designed to match the new Xbox Series X / S design, with a lightweight frame featuring large leather ear cups and an adjustable padded headband. It also supports Windows Sonic, Dolby Atmos and DTS Headphone: X spatial audio technology.
Microsoft has also worked to improve microphone quality, with a view to Xbox party chats. This new headset has dual beam-forming microphones and voice isolation to isolate background noise. You can also connect the headset to your phone and Xbox at the same time, so you can listen to audio or conversations from your phone while playing.
The Xbox Wireless Headset lasts up to 15 hours on battery, and a 30-minute charge lets you play for around four hours. A full charge will take around three hours. Microsoft is also updating the Xbox Accessories app to include equalizer control, bass gain, auto-dimming sensitivity, microphone monitoring and the brightness of the microphone’s dimming lights.
The new Xbox Wireless Headset will be available worldwide from March 16 at a price of $ 99. You can pre-order the headset today at the Microsoft Store and other retailers.
