Microsoft’s new Xbox Wireless Headset now available for pre-order

Microsoft has just announced the new Xbox Wireless Headset after building two generations of Surface headphones and Surface Earbuds.

Best-in-class audio performance

Experience high quality audio with a low-latency, 100% wireless connection to your Xbox console, without the need for a dongle or a base station. Supports spatial sound technologies including Windows Sonic, Dolby Atmos, and DTS Headphone:X for realism and audio precision that fully surrounds you.

Comfortable & intuitive design

Play comfortably for hours with the ultra-soft earcups, lightweight design, and customizable fit. The rotating earcup dials of the new Xbox Wireless Headset provide an intuitive way to change volume and game/chat balance. Quickly adjust and get back to the game. Fully adjustable mic tucks up and out of the way when not in use.

Crystal clear chat

Voice isolation focuses the mic on your voice to reduce background noise. And when you aren’t talking, the auto-mute feature automatically mutes your microphone so you keep comms channels clear, while the manual mute button gives you a privacy option when you need it.

Tailored to you

Use the Xbox Accessories app to fine-tune the audio controls, including equalizer settings, bass boost, auto-mute sensitivity, and mic-monitoring levels. Pair directly to your console with Xbox Wireless radio without the need for a dongle, cable, or base station and connect to your mobile device with Bluetooth® to listen to music or chat while on the go.

Keep your comms connected

Whether you’re coordinating to overcome co-op challenges or throwing down with online competition, you need a headset that can endure your most intense gaming sessions. Enjoy up to 15 hours of battery life with the internal, rechargeable battery.
