The newly released Xbox Wireless Headset is the first wireless Xbox headset that Microsoft has offered for Xbox users since the 360’s heyday. This new offering is designed to connect with Xbox One and Xbox Series X/S consoles, PCs, and mobile devices via Bluetooth. Borrowing from its work with the Surface Headphones, Microsoft has added similar rotating ear cup dials that lets users adjust volume and game/audio chat balance. Microsoft has also worked to improve microphone quality, with Xbox party chats in mind. This new headset has dual beamforming microphones and voice isolation to help isolate background noise.
Designed to match the Xbox Series X’s color scheme and general aesthetic, the Microsoft Xbox Wireless Headset comes with an adjustable cushioned headband, polyurethane leather earcups, and an adjustable mic. Microsoft claims the headset has four hours of battery life per 30 minutes of charging, with a full charge taking around three hours. Microsoft has also updated the Xbox Accessories app to include control over the equalizer, bass boost, auto-mute sensitivity, mic monitoring, and brightness of the mic’s mute light. The Xbox Wireless Headset is available to preorder now and will be available worldwide starting March 16th.
