There are few people who have been lucky enough to have tested as many Xbox One headsets as me, across all formats, shapes, sizes, and price points. Out of all the headsets I've used, this particular one is easily in the top three for me, for its quality, convenience, and comfort.
The LucidSound LS35X is in a league of its own when it comes to design. The soft, airy cups are infused with generous amounts of coolant gel, creating a dreamy experience that is hard to give up. They also have one of the best microphones on a headset in this price range that I have used, along with a versatile soundscape that provides a tactical boost in games, and an immersive experience for media.
The LS35X is also fully wireless, and for Xbox One, you don't even need a dongle. It connects directly to your console using the same radio signal as your Xbox One controller, for a completely convenient, no-hassle setup experience. It lacks Bluetooth for use with other devices, but you can add in an Xbox Wireless USB dongle to get it working on PC, or use the included 3.5mm cable instead.
For Black Friday it's currently on sale for $150, which is $30 lower than the usual asking price. If you've been on the fence when it comes to grabbing a new headset (or want a rock-solid Christmas gift for that Xbox fan in your life), now is the best time to buy.
