Microsoft is launching the Xbox Wireless Headset in the next month. It’s touted to deliver “best-in-class audio and chat performance” plus “outstanding design and comfort.”
The $99 Xbox Wireless Headset promises high-quality audio, lots of handy features and an understated design built to match your console. The headset launches on the 16th of March, and you can preorder it right now from Microsoft.
The headset supports several spatial sound technologies, such as Windows Sonic, Dolby Atmos, and DTS Headphone: X on Microsoft’s next-gen consoles, which is certainly a major boost to immersion. Its mic “provides clear and intelligent chat audio quality,” with voice isolation and auto-mute features that will ensure your words get heard when they need to be.
You can even pair the Xbox Wireless Headset to your console and mobile device at the same time, making it easy to listen to your favorite music or take a call while mowing down aliens in Halo. These cans should charge up pretty quickly too, as Microsoft is promising four hours of battery life from a quick 30-minute charge, and 15 hours of juice after three hours of charging.
