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.
