Microsoft is prepping for a big Xbox One X launch in the upcoming 2017 holiday season, and with that comes a slew of new Xbox accessories. The team is gearing up with new wireless Xbox headsets from LucidSound, Turtle Beach, and Razer, which all support Microsoft’s Xbox Wireless protocol: this means that all of them will be easily pairable with any Xbox One console (no dongle necessary), in addition to Windows 10 PCs using Microsoft’s Xbox Wireless headset for Windows 10. Let’s dive into the details below.
LucidSound has two wireless Xbox headsets, with an in-ear and over-ear option:
- LucidSound LS15X Wireless Surround Sound In-Ear Contour Gaming Headset ($99.99)
- LucidSound LS35X Wireless Surround Sound Gaming Headset for Xbox One ($179.99)
In this video, LucidSound CEO, Chris Von Huben, gives the rundown on these new headsets and how they will connect with Xbox One X. Both Xbox headsets will be available sometime this holiday season.
Turtle Beach follows LucidSounds lead in offering two Xbox gaming headsets, one in the price-range and one for the gamer that wants to pay extra for comfort and sound. The company has two over-ear gaming headsets:
The Turtle Beach Stealth 700 offers the same comfort and style of the Turtle Beach Stealth 600 Xbox headset, but also includes Active Noise-Cancellation (ANC) and Bluetooth connectivity, with the ability to connect to the all-new Turtle Beach Audio Hub app for special customization options. Both Turtle Beach headsets are available now from Turtle Beach’s website and wherever Xbox accessories are sold.
Lastly, there is the Razer Thresher Ultimate for Xbox One gaming headset. The Razer Thresher offers comfort and lagless 7.1 Dolby Surround Sound. The Razer Thresher for Xbox One is available now for $249.99 and is the most expensive headset on this list, but Razer claims that the Thresher Ultimate is their most comfortable headset yet.
While not an Xbox gaming headset, the ASUS G703 V1 is a gaming laptop from the Republic of Gamers line-up of gaming Windows 10 PCs. Under the hood, you’ll find a NVIDIA GTX1080 graphics card, with an Intel Kabylake K-SKU, as well as built-in Xbox Wireless support for Xbox One controllers and Xbox Wireless headsets.
The G703 also has a Self-cleaning cooling system and ultra-responsive display, with a specially designated Xbox key to provide direct access to Game bar to broadcast your games directly to Mixer. Look for the ASUS G703 V1 and all of the Xbox gaming headsets coming this Fall and holiday season leading up to the release of Xbox One X!Further reading: LucidSound, Microsoft, Razer, Turtle Beach, Xbox, Xbox One, Xbox One X, Xbox Wireless
