    Default LucidSound LS40 Premium Wireless Gaming Headset

    Anyone have or tried these? If so what they like?
    Or know where in SA one can get?
    What I've read up I like.

    Doubt I have cash for such headsets, but interested.
    Look like a good pair to replace my 10 year old, derelict, Trittons. That I totally love due to their amazing sound.

    I have one for the Xbox. Was super cheap on sale here (300). Used them once, prefer the Astros.

  4. Saying Thanks:

    Sure it's the LS40's? Cause seems very current this model (2018. ). Hard to believe it's on sale already.

    Hmm, not wireless enough for me.

    These guys seem to have some serious production issues to build stock. Check now the Xbox One version is only launching 1 September so it's been like two years since it was announced.

    LS40 is just available second hand on Amazon.

    I think they also use a dongle so not 100% wireless, the LS35x connect direct to the xbox without any dongle, no I see on their websight they bringing out new models already

    But the appeal of this is that the dongle makes in true 7.1 splitting from optical cable. That's something I've had struggle to find with headphones.

    Unless when they say USB they mean to dongle and that's still wireless?

    But games generally only use 5.1 sound tracks anyway.

    So are the other two channels just made up?

    See it's DTS-X based which is an odd choice since most games are Dolby.
