Microsoft Announces A New Xbox Wireless Headset After 7 Years

The last Xbox headset that we ever remember was probably the Xbox One Stereo Headset released back in 2014.

So it has been a while, but Microsoft finally announced their new Xbox Wireless Headset which seems to boast several features with a budget-friendly price.

With a sleek and minimal look, the Xbox Wireless Headset features dual beamforming microphones, voice isolation, spatial sound technology and an auto-mute function. All of which points to advocating crystal clear communication and background noise reduction. An adjustable mic and rotating cup dials are also included in the modern design.

The headset works for Xbox systems, PCs and mobile devices through Bluetooth and boasts 15 hours of wireless play and a 30-minute charge for 4 hours of play over the USB-C. Customization will also be included for users to control their equalizer, auto-mute sensitivity, mute light brightness and mic monitoring.

However, it seems like the wireless headset doesn’t come with an audio jack for plug-and-play, unlike the PlayStation 5’s PULSE 3D Wireless Headset.

The Xbox Wireless Headset is priced at US$99 and will be released worldwide starting 16 March. Pre-orders are currently available at the Microsoft Store.

Or if you can’t wait, there’s always Razer’s Kaira Pro for the Xbox Series X.
