Tagged: Gaming, Hardware, Live Marketplace, Xbox Live, Xbox One,
Microsoft's new Xbox Wireless Headset, the latest must have accessory to join the Xbox family, is available today in most worldwide Xbox markets at select retailers, including Microsoft Store.
Launching today, the Xbox Wireless Headset offers best-in-class audio and chat performance, a comfortable and intuitive design, and unique experiences customizable to each gamer. With all these benefits, we are raising the bar for mid-tier wireless headsets.
Best-in-Class Audio and Chat Performance
- Low latency, lossless audio with Xbox Wireless radio for fewer pops, clicks, and disconnects.
- Support for spatial sound technologies, including Windows Sonic, Dolby Atmos, and DTS Headphone:X, for realism and audio precision.
- Crystal clear chat with intelligent mic features that focus on speech audio vs. surrounding sound:
- Voice isolation tuning helps the mic pick up your voice, not background ambient noise.
- Auto-mute automatically mutes your microphone when you aren’t speaking, so you keep comms channels clear. You can customize auto-mute sensitivity or turn it off altogether. The on-ear manual mute button gives you privacy when you need it.
- An indicator light on the mic boom turns on when your mic is active, so you always know when your voice is being picked up.
- The Xbox Accessories app on your Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and Windows 10 devices lets you fine-tune the audio controls for a customized audio experience, including equalizer settings, bass boost, auto-mute sensitivity, mic monitoring, and brightness of mic’s LED light.
Comfortable & Intuitive Design
- Outstanding design with high-quality materials and finishes, featuring a durable frame with inner metal headband, rubberized dial rings for grip, and a fully adjustable mic you can tuck up and out of the way.
- Lightweight and comfortable at just 11 ounces (312g), with large earcups and a thick headband cushion made of ultra-soft polyurethane leather designed to fit a wide range ear and head sizes.
- Ease of use and intuitive design with earcup dials for volume and game/chat balance, and on-ear controls for power, mute, and pairing.
- Up to 15 hours of battery life with the internal, lithium-ion battery. Fully charges in 3 hours but even 30 minutes of charging will get you back into the game in a flash with up to 4 hours of battery life. *
Compatibility & Connectivity
- Pairs with multiple devices. Play wirelessly across multiple devices including Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, and Windows 10 PCs and connect to your mobile device via Bluetooth for on-the-go music or chat. You can even pair to your phone and Xbox simultaneously to chat with a friend on your phone while playing on your console.
- Fine-tune audio and chat settings with the Xbox Accessories app, including equalizer settings, bass boost, auto-mute sensitivity, mic monitoring, and brightness of the mic indicator light.
- Wireless updates on your console will deliver the latest features for a premium audio experience that continues to evolve.
Special Dolby Atmos for Headphones Offer
Microsoft has partnered with Dolby to offer a limited activation of Dolby Atmos for Headphones on all Xbox Wireless Headsets until September 30, 2021. Immerse yourself in a more intense gaming experience with pinpoint audio precision and crystal clarity to catch even the subtlest, yet game-changing sounds. †
Dolby Atmos for Headphones activation requires just two simple steps:
- Connect the Xbox Wireless Headset to your console or Windows 10 PC
- Download and open the Dolby Access app
- On the app loading page, you’ll receive a notification at the bottom of the screen confirming activation – “Dolby Atmos for Headphones is ready for use” – which can be verified by the Xbox Wireless Headset trial countdown in the upper right corner of the app Home screen.
