It may have taken a little longer than we liked, but Microsoft has finally unveiled its first console-focused headset since the Xbox 360 generation. And, luckily, it looks as though it was worth the wait.
The Xbox Wireless Headset works with Xbox Series X, Xbox One, and Windows, meaning last-gen users and PC gamers can also take advantage of this new release. The headset features a low-latency, dongle-free wireless connection to the Xbox and supports immersive audio through Windows Sonic, Dolby Atmos, and DTS Headphone:X technologies. The mic and soft ear cups are adjustable, so you can find your perfect fit, and rotating earcup dials allow you to control volume and game/chat balance. Voice isolation makes sure your teammates can hear you when they need to, and an auto-mute function keeps unintended background noise from screwing up your mission. USB-C charging provides up to 15 hours of battery life, which should be plenty of time for your next gaming session (well, hopefully). The Xbox Wireless Headset is available now from Microsoft for $100.
