Microsoft has launched a pair of new wireless headphones named Xbox Wireless Headset. This is the company's first wireless headphone release in a very long time. These headsets are compatible with both Xbox Series and Xbox One series consoles along with Windows PCs and smartphones.

The oval-shaped ear cushions are made up of polyurethane leather and foam cushioning. These materials should make them comfortable to wear even for long durations.
These headphones come with direct pairing with the console. It can even be connected with a smartphone at the same time so that whenever you receive a call, you can listen to the ringtone do not miss it. Other useful features include auto-mute and voice isolation that should deliver an enhanced gaming experience. It further supports Dolby Atmos, DTS:X, and Windows Sonic audio technologies for an immersive audio output.
The battery life on these headphones is claimed to be around 15 hours and features a USB Type-C port for charging purposes. A full charge will take about three hours but it is said to last for four hours with just 30 minutes of charging. Microsoft has priced the Xbox Wireless Headset at $99.99 in the United States. These are already available for pre-orders in the country and are will land in other parts of the world sometime next month.
