I have been through a few pairs of Xbox headphones over the last 7 years of my consoles life. Over the first 5 or 6 years i had two pairs of Turtle beach stealth 600s and never had any issues, however wanted to upgrade last year as i figured it was time. Last summer i research a new pair of headphones heavily and settled on the Lucidsound LX35's, which were at the time number one or two on many people's list. I had a ton of trouble with these, they were heavy and bulky, and they never really felt like the kind of pair i would expect as someone's number one. After just 6 months of regular usage and treating them what i would describe as very average, the right side plastic cracked and the earcup was basically falling off. After that disappointment i went back and researched again and settled on these which again are number one or two consistently on everyone's top ten list. I picked them up a little over a month ago, despite reading some sketchy reviews on Reddit, and immediately was impressed by the construction, and feel. I will break down a few pros and cons below, but the TL:DR is that they are worth the money.
Pros -Excellent sound, i use them for a variety of games from Call of Duty to Sea of Thieves, and the sound is great. There are several sound profiles so you can set it to where you want it. -They are comfortable. My gaming sessions can span from an hour to 5 hours, and throughout that time i have not had any issues with fatigue. They do get a little warm at the ears, but I never really realize until i take them off and the cool air hits my ears. -Connection is reliable. When i boot these up they connect immediately, throughout the last month or so there may have been once or twice when they didn't connect immediately or they skipped a bit, however it is not a constant issue at all. -Construction is solid. As mentioned my last headphones cracked at the point where the band meets the ear cup, even though these have an even smaller connection, it feels more solid. -TV/Movie viewing is awesome. I frequently watch TV in the background while doing dishes or cleaning up, and i will throw these on to be able to hear without blasting the TV. Sound is rich and easy to adjust. -Bluetooth connection is an awesome feature. Kind of crazy that more headphones dont have bluetooth along with the xbox connectivity. It is a great feature to have, i enjoy listening to music while playing games, and to have it pipe in along with game sound is nice.
Cons (to be honest, difficult to come up with these which is a great thing) -The volume button on the right side is sensitive. There have been more than a few occasions where i put the headset on or take it off and accidentally knock the volume up or down. It is something to look out for, and i still think with time i will get better at avoiding it. - The microphone muting system. I am reaching a bit here, but coming from turtle beaches where when you flip the mic arm up it mutes automatically, on these headphones when you push the mic into the headphones, it does not mute it. Would be a nice feature if it muted but regardless the mute button is large and it is clearly muted with the red light. -Charging. no USB C kind of sucks, and it definitely does not make this device future proof as you will always need to carry around a micro USB. -No mic monitoring. Again a bit of a reach, but coming from headphones that have this feature (allows you to hear your own voice playback in the headphones) it took a bit to get used to. It was useful to me as it let me hear how loud i was being, and being a loud person it helped me shut up. -The head band is large. Another reach, but the headband is very thick and it always leaves a rather large indentation in my hair after pretty much any gaming session. If you have any sort of social engagement, I wouldn't recommend wearing these beforehand, which kind of sucks if you want to get that last round of COD in before heading out to dinner with friends.
Overall, these are excellent and i have already recommended them to a few friends. The pro's FAR outweigh the cons, and most people will absolutely love them.
Hasta ahora estoy bastante satisfecho con estos audífonos para videojuegos y voy a puntualizar pros y contras. Pros: -Sonido: que no quede duda, la calidad de sonido de este headset es muy superior, incluso a algunas marcas bastante reconocidas en calidad de audio (tengo un Sennheiser GSP 600 y no pensé que nada sonaría mejor, pues el 9x si lo hace) de verdad escuchas todo alrededor y puedes saber de donde viene, básico para quieres jugamos FPS y Battle Royales -Micrófono: El micrófono tiene una calidad impecable y un sonido muy claro, puedes ajustar el volumen del mismo y el monitoreo (escucharte a ti mismo, para evitar gritar) en la app para la computadora. -Estructura: El marco del headset es de acero inoxidable lo cual lo hace sentir bastante resistente, el resto es plástico, sin embargo los materiales se sienten de muy buena calidad. La banda elástica es textil. -Completamente inalámbrico, no dependes de ningún accesorio para conectarlo (solo Xbox one, para pc necesitas el adaptador inalámbrico) -Comodidad: puedo pasar horas con este headset y la sensación de tenerlo puesto es mínima, comparado con otros headsets que tengo que son pesados o ejercen mucha presión sobre la cabeza u orejas. Los cojines de las orejas dejan respirar la piel y no guardan el calor como otros materiales (piel, vinilo) -Conectividad Bluetooth: Al tener integración Bluetooth puedes conectarlo a tu smartphone o computadora y puedes recibir llamadas, escuchar música o audio del equipo al que estes conectado mientras juegas. Contras: -Versatilidad: Es un headset diseñado exclusivamente para Xbox y Windows así que no puede usarse en PS4 o Nintendo Switch. -Rango de señal: La señal inalámbrica de este headset no es tan buena como la de los controles inalámbricos, el headset se desconecta del Xbox a una menor distancia que los controles inalámbricos y al regresar al rango casi nunca se reconecta de forma automática. La señal Bluetooth tiene un rango muy bueno. -Precio: Es un headset en rango de precio Premium, la verdad es poco accesible.
Altamente recomendable, muy buen sonido. Los compare con unos TMaster de 7.1 y suena mejor. Comprados con HyperX Cloud y el sonido es mucho más alto. Puedes escuchar tu celular mientras estas en las chats grupales. Botón de muteo y luz en el micrófono. Ligeros, excelente rendimiento de batería. No batallas nada para sincronizarlos. El Envió llegó sin problemas a Mexico. Valen la pena si estas buscando Headset Wireless.
De inmediato se percibe la calidad y durabilidad de los materiales. Tienen un diseño bastante clásico, por lo que puedes usarlos para escuchar música sin tener ese aspecto gamer. Con respecto a la calidad del audio, es excelente. Realmente son muy inmersivos y logran gran detalle. Excelente para shooters. Son bastante cómodos a pesar de las largas sesiones, no llegan a lastimar la cabeza ni las orejas. La duración de la pila es excelente, más de 15 horas sin problemas.
Los botones que trae la diadema son bastante intuitivos, por lo que rápidamente puedes ajustar el mezclador de volumen del chat y juego, así como el volumen general sin la necesidad de abrir la interfaz de xbox.
Otro gran punto a favor de estos audífonos es poderlos conectar a tu xbox y algún dispositivo bluetooth al mismo tiempo, lo cual te permite escuchar música o atender llamadas sin necesidad de perder detalle del juego.
Definitivamente una excelente compra, no creo que haya mejores audífonos inalámbricos para Xbox en este momento.
I love that this headset connects both to my PC via the Xbox wireless adapter and to my phone via Bluetooth. Mic quality is stellar on PC for a wireless set, and audio quality is great. Comfort is good; something to get used to over time.
One issue I had when installing this was that it actually requires the new version of the Xbox wireless adapter for PC. I tried using the older, larger model which didn't have audio as a feature.
Open Box for 175$ CDN is a steal. Performs great in all aspects. Dolby Atmos/Windows Sonic integration is great. Microphone sounds ultra clear to my friends. Battery life is really long. Connects flawlessly everytime to my Xbox One.
They were awesome but unfortunately didn't work for my PlayStation. Which is what I was looking for. But it connects to your phone and the quality there is what I'm basing my review on. Mic sound was great sound quality was awesome 3d effect was stellar. Honestly, the most comfortable headset I've ever worn, comfortable for 8+hour sessions. Great battery life. 5 stars all around
I ended up getting the 7p for my PlayStation and even tho I didn't want them enitially I kept the 9x for my Xbox one. Hands down best headsets ever. Wow.
Before buying this I watched several product reviews and comparisons with models and brands. I decided to go with this one for a few reasons.
1) Xbox connectivity - I have an Xbox one X, and wanted a good wireless headset for that. With the same connection as the Xbox controllers, I have had zero connectivity problems, and I game quite a bit.
2) Bluetooth - I wanted something that I could also use wirelessly with my PC, and my motherboard has bluetooth built in. You have to plug it in via USB if you want to change the audio mixer, and other preferences, as well as have bluetooth turn on automatically.
3) Wanted something that would work with my iPhone, and the bluetooth works great for that also. You can also connect via audio cable, but why would you.
Pros - The sound is great, haven't had any problems with it. - I'm told that I sound great on the mic, like i'm in the room. - Once paired with the Xbox, it works like a controller, so it will turn on the Xbox for you. - Battery lasts all day, like 20 hours. - Volume controls and mute on the headset are positioned well - Retractable mic is nice, and it has an LED on it to indicate when it's muted. - Comfortable for my ears, but I've heard it's not been the same for some others. - You can change the headstrap, but I'm not sure I care enough to do that.
Cons - Doesn't noise cancel or isolate, but I don't need that in my home which is where it will be primarily used - Once paired with the Xbox, it works like a controller, so it will turn on the Xbox for you. Every time. I only put this here because when I want to use it with my PC, it turns on the Xbox also, and I have to turn it back off.
I don't write allot of reviews but these exceeded my expectations. For me, these flat out perform better than my Gen 3 Astro A50's. I Bought these to use on the Xbox Series X because the Astros Gen 3's don't work on the Series X. I did a ton of research and of course I was leaning towards another Astro Purchase. However, not only are the Arctis 9x significantly cheaper but to my ear they sound better. I believe they are cheaper because they don't need a base station. So basically less clutter and cables which is a bonus. And there's no need for a cable to run to the xbox controller for the mic. It works wirelessly. I haven't had any connection issues like some others have mentioned in reviews so another bonus. I bought these on Amazon Prime Day and got 30% off. Now they were half the price of the Astros, but the quality is on par with the A50s. I play allot of COD and the Dolby Atmos sound really blows me away and helps me detect enemy movement better than my old Astros. Even at full price, these Headphones are a great deal. Do your research but know I have the highest praise for these and am confident to recommend them.
