Xbox has announced a new wired Stereo Headset, launching on September 21 for £54.99 / $59.99.
The new peripheral looks to be a more affordable alternative to the Xbox Wireless Headset, which was released earlier this year. Compared to that one, the new Xbox Stereo Headset will be wired but will still include "clear microphone performance, high-quality ear cushions, and a volume control dial on the right earcup".
Microsoft is calling it an "entry-level headset", featuring many of the design elements found in the more expensive Xbox Wireless Headset. It features an adjustable headband with plush cushioning, ultra-soft large earcups, and easily accessible volume controls.
Audio on the Xbox Stereo Headset will also support "high-fidelity spatial sound technologies including Windows Sonic, Dolby Atmos, and DTS Headphone".
"We are pleased to announce our Xbox Stereo Headset, available for pre-order today. With the new Xbox Stereo Headset, we are bringing everything you expect from Xbox products like performance, stand-out features, quality, and accessibility to deliver immersive experiences across console, PC, and mobile devices. We also wanted to bring you more value to the entry-level headset category, including clear microphone performance, high-quality ear cushions, and a volume control dial on the right earcup."
Pre-orders are available via the Microsoft Store, with a price of £54.99 / $59.99. As highlighted, this could be the perfect alternative for when your wireless headset is out of charge as well, or if you want to play on your PC. But most importantly, it's a perfect entry-level headset, complete with many of the features found in the Xbox Wireless Headset.
