(Pocket-lint) - Xbox has followed up its wireless headset for Xbox Series X/S (and Xbox One) with a wired pair of stereo gaming headphones.
The design is similar, with a lightweight construction and flexible headband.
The earcups are extra large and ultra-soft. The right ear also doubles as a volume dial.
A microphone boom is attached, while other on-ear controls include muting fuctionality.
The stereo cable sports a 3.5mm jack for connection to an Xbox Wireless Controller ( via the port on the bottom). Other than that, everything else is familiar.
Sound support includes Dolby Atmos and DTS Headphone: X, plus Microsoft's own Windows Sonic.
The Xbox Stereo Headset also works with Windows and, of course, any wired mobile source.
Thanks to the absence of Wi-Fi and Bluetooth technology, the headset costs a lot less than the wireless model. Available for pre-order ahead of a 21 September release date, it costs £54.99 in the UK, $59.99 in the States.
It is being released globally, so you can check the Microsoft store site to find out further details and pricing for your area.
