Who says you must spend an arm and leg on an honest headset? The Xbox Stereo Headset that was introduced at present on Xbox Wire is on the market for pre-order as of proper now on the Microsoft Retailer for simply $60. In accordance with the weblog publish, Xbox desires to deliver “extra worth to the entry-level headset class.”  

From the appears of it, the Xbox Stereo Headset shares lots of the identical options as its wi-fi counterpart, the Xbox Wi-fi Headset, one of many finest wi-fi gaming headsets I’ve used this yr. You continue to have quantity controls constructed into the sizable plushy ear cups, and though it lacks Bluetooth, the headset does have a 3.5mm headphone jack, one thing the costlier model was sorely missing. You do lose out on the accented inexperienced trim that was on the wi-fi model, however the headphone jack is inexperienced, so yay!

The $60 value may be very aggressive in a crowded headset class, and if this headset makes use of the identical 40mm drivers because the wi-fi model, which was already aggressively priced at $100, it is a hell of a deal. Although, I would like to see full tech specs earlier than I get too excited. 

The Xbox Stereo Headset will probably be out on September 21 for $60 and is on the market for pre-order now.
