LucidSound LS35X is the first gaming headset to connect with Xbox Wireless tech

LucidSound has announced its latest gaming headset, the LS35X, is the first to connect to Xbox consoles and compatible Windows 10 PCs using Xbox Wireless tech.

The new headset uses the same tech as the official Xbox Wireless controller, meaning you can pair it to your Xbox One console in the same way. That should ensure compatibility with all past and future Xbox One consoles as well. As for PCs, the headset will work with the Xbox Wireless Adapter, which has been available for some time for connecting Xbox One controllers to PCs. Further, since Microsoft started licensing Xbox Wireless tech to PC makers in 2016, the LucidSound LS35X will be able to easily connect to PCs with the tech built in as well, without the need for extra wires or adapters.

Aside from its Xbox Wireless tech, the LS35X headset packs 50mm neodymium drivers and 3D surround sound via Windows Sonic for Headphones on Xbox One and Windows 10.There's also head tracking tech on board, along with compatibility with Dolby Atmos for Headphones surround sound.

There's no word on price or availability yet, but we should learn more on that front soon.
