Xbox One Stereo Headset and Adapter Coming in Early March
We’ve all been there. Needing to get away from the nagging missus and background noise from the rest of them in the house for some gaming “ME” time. Congratulations your life has just been made simpler thanks to a helpful announcement from Microsoft. Need to get some game time in while the family sleeps? Or while your mates drink and socialise in your living room? You need the new Xbox One Stereo Headset in your life. The headset intends to allow gamers to immerse themselves in their games and play at whatever volume they’d like. We don’t recommend having the volume at blindness inducing levels.
Releasing across Xbox One markets worldwide in early March, the Stereo Headset will offer a premium audio experience for both game and chat audio. Offering a full-range (20Hz – 20kHz) audio spectrum to ensure gamers can enjoy the deepest bass and the clearest high frequencies, the Stereo Headset will also feature a unidirectional microphone for clear voice capture and over-the-ear speakers to keep those ears comfortable during long sessions on the Xbox One. The Xbox One Stereo Headset will ship with a detachable Stereo Headset Adapter that puts all of the audio controls right at your fingertips. You can balance the game and chat audio levels to hear just what you want, control the master volume, and mute the microphone each with the touch of a button. The headset is shipping at sixty quid.
Never fear if you already have a pretty comfortable stereo headset that is glued to your head the Stereo Headset Adapter will also ship separately worldwide in early March. Volume controls on the adapter let you adjust chat volume levels and mute your headset’s microphone without taking your hands off the controller. Simply plug the adapter into your controller and connect your compatible stereo headset. Add in-game audio by connecting your headset to the back of the Xbox One or to your TV. This crazy little bit of kit can be yours for a score.
