All of the games debuting at E3 2018 may be creating the most buzz from the conference, but accessory makers are getting in on the action, too. Among them is LucidSound, which has revealed a fresh lineup of high-end gaming headsets – two of which are designed to connect directly to your Xbox One without a base station.
The main draws here are the LS15X and LS35X, which are both Microsoft-licensed with Xbox Wireless tech built in. Xbox Wireless is the same tech that Microsoft uses to connect wireless controllers to Xbox One consoles with the press of a button, and these new headsets will work the same way. Included are built-in volume and mute controls, along with a sleek design and support for Dolby Atmos and Windows Sonic for headphones.
Outside of its Xbox-centric duo, LucidSound has the LS25, which is built for esports enthusiasts. The same volume and mute controls are on board here, as is a dual microphone design with a removable boom mic. The ear cups are also made of memory foam for long-term comfort.
Finally, LucidSound has the LS31 and LS41, both of which are updates to existing lines. The LS31 boasts upgraded drivers and a replaceable ear cup design. A boom mic is also on board, and LucidSound is talking up the premium feel and design of the headset. As for the LS41, it packs everything the LS31 includes, but with DTS surround sound, gel-cooled memory foam in the ear cups, and a rechargeable battery that can last up to 20 hours.
So far, there's no word on pricing or availability. However, for reference, the prior generation LS30 launched at a base price of $149.99 (though it's down to $110 on Amazon right now). The LS40, on the other hand, came at a premium price point of $199.99.
