Microsoft launches the new Xbox Wireless Headset for the Xbox Series X|S. The Xbox Wireless Headset features spatial sound processing by including custom audio hardware to offload audio processing from the CPU, dramatically improving the accessibility, quality, and performance of these experiences. Supported spacial sound technologies include Windows Sonic, Dolby Atmos, and DTS Headphone:X, delivering realism and audio precision. The Xbox Wireless Headset can simultaneously pair to your phone and Xbox.

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 mute light. The Xbox Wireless Headset is compatible with Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, Windows 10 PCs, and mobile devices with Bluetooth. Charging gets you back into the action in a flash: 30 minutes of charging provides about 4 hours of battery life, with only 3 hours of charging to reach up to 15 hours of battery life when the headset is not in use.
