What's the Xbox Wireless Headset?

The Xbox Wireless Headset apparently features 'best-in-class' audio and chat performance that includes low latency and lossless sound. It includes Windows Sonic, Dolby Atmos, and DTS Headphone: X, and should help players hear crucial sounds such as enemy footsteps in a high amount of clarity.

“We spent a lot of time in the audio testing chambers trying to characterize and understand how the headset reproduces audio in different room environments. It goes in your living room, game room, and dorm room and we want it to sound the best for all types of audio.” said Erik Garcia, Project Architect and Lead. “In the same way, the team studied game-play to ensure  great sounding chat, sensitive mic to prevent background noise.”

The microphone has voice isolation so that it'll pick up your voice rather than the background ambient noise that are ever-present in gaming lobbies. There's also an auto-mute function to keep your chat clear and a manual mute button if that isn't to your fancy. The headset also connects across multiple devices that includes the Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, and Windows 10 PCs. You can connect the headset to both your phone and Xbox at the same time, so you can chat on Discord while pwning noobs online.
