The first official headset for Xbox’s forthcoming Scorpio console has been revealed by Lucid Sound. Now you may think why not one of the bigger players like Astro Gaming or Turtle Beach? Then when you look at the official announcement for the headset, which will be shown off at E3 2017, you start to see that they’ve managed to do something that neither of those two headset makers have been able to do on an Xbox console this entire generation. The LucidSound LS35X is the first officially licensed Xbox Wireless headset that directly connects to the console like an official controller with no need for a chat cable, transmitter, or base station.
The announcement comes via press release, as apparently the company is looking to get out ahead of the E3 avalanche of news. It is, however, the first headset that is confirmed to work on the Xbox Scorpio console. The headset will work with the Xbox One as well, and Windows 10 users can connect the headset to PCs that either have a built-in Xbox Wireless adapter or the USB adapter.
On the tech side, the LS35X is said to use 50mm neodymium drivers, is compatible with Windows Sonic, features head-tracking technology, and is compatible with Dolby Atmos.
The LucidSound LS35X is due to arrive this holiday season, a price tag for the headset was not announced at this time.
