Priced at $59.99/£54.99, the Xbox Stereo Headset is billed as “a great entry-level headset that includes many of the features” found in the premium Xbox Wireless Headset released earlier this year.
Available to pre-order ahead of its release on September 21, the headset sports “ultra-soft large earcups”, on-ear volume and mute controls, and supports spatial sound technologies like Windows Sonic, Dolby Atmos and DTS Headphone:X
“To generate the best possible experience across gaming, team chat, music, and movies, the team tuned the headset to replicate the intended audio recording source that the creators wanted you to experience,” said Jessica Tsujikawa, senior product marketing manager for Xbox.
“The result of this is hearing the audio as close as possible to how it was recorded, by ensuring clean mid & high frequency performance with strong bass.”
Microsoft will launch the latest colour in its range of Xbox Series X/S wireless controllers on August 31. Priced at $69.99, the Aqua Shift Special Edition comes in a blue colour that gives off a ‘shimmering’ effect.
Its release will follow the recent reintroduction of Xbox’s Design Lab service, which allows players to customise their own controllers.
