It should arrive next month, and it’s the Xbox brand’s first wireless headset since the Xbox 360 days.
The new headset is designed to connect via Bluetooth to Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, Xbox One, computers, and mobile devices.
The speaker design optimizes almost every aspect of the Xbox One Stereo headphones and the basic wired chat headphones currently available.
Microsoft has relied on its work with Surface Speakers to add similar rotating earphones that allow you to adjust the volume and balance of the game or voice chat.
This new Xbox Wireless Headset is also designed to match the Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S design with a lightweight frame that houses large leather ear-disks and an adjustable cushioned headband.
It also supports Windows Sonic, Dolby Atmos and DTS Headphone: X spatial audio technologies.
Microsoft has also worked to improve the quality of the microphone, with group chats in mind.
This new headphone features dual-configuration microphones and sound insulation to help isolate background noise.
You can also pair the headset with your phone and Xbox at the same time, allowing you to listen to audio or calls from your phone while gaming.
The Xbox Wireless Headset lasts up to 15 hours via battery, a 30-minute charge via USB-C lets you play for about four hours, and a full charge takes about three hours.
Microsoft is also updating the Xbox Accessories app to include equalizer control, bass boost, auto mute sensitivity, microphone monitoring, and microphone mute light brightness.
The new Xbox Wireless Headset is available worldwide from March 16 at a price of $ 99, and you can pre-order the headset starting today through the Microsoft Store and other retailers.
