For those in search of a wireless headset that combines exceptional sound quality, wireless convenience, and long-lasting comfort for those marathon gaming sessions, the LucidSound LS35X is a must-consider option. In our in-depth LS35X review, it garnered a flawless 5 out of 5-star rating from our editor, Jez Corden. He lauded its direct-to-Xbox connectivity, which eliminates the need for any cumbersome dongles or adapters, and its detachable microphone featuring an LED indicator and a mute button.
The microphone outshines many competing headsets in terms of both clarity and noise cancellation. With the mic-monitoring feature, you can effortlessly hear yourself while speaking, and should you prefer not to engage in voice chat with other players, the mic can be easily removed.

I have my own love for LucidSound's distinctive design, which incorporates earcups doubling as game volume and chat dials. This ingenious feature allows you to effortlessly fine-tune sound levels to your liking, eliminating the need to fumble around for the right buttons. I consider LucidSound headsets to be my all-time favorites, largely thanks to this indispensable feature.
Also despite being wireless, the headset also includes a 3.5mm headphone cable for added versatility. This means you can easily use it with various other devices or conserve battery power when needed.
While it's true that the LucidSound LS35X often goes on sale due to its age, I've rarely come across a deal as remarkable as the current $48 price point, and when I do I always share it as it's a total steal. This price makes it a clear and effortless recommendation, even in a market saturated with numerous other headsets, given that it has been a few years since its initial launch. It stands out prominently among headsets in this price range and seamlessly integrates with Xbox consoles without needing any additional devices.
As someone with extensive experience testing various headsets, I value simplicity wherever possible, and the LucidSound LS35X excels in delivering precisely that. At $48, I wholeheartedly recommend it.
