This is on PC side but I'm thinking about upgrading to these https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...441af50d5ca179
and then buying a separate mic. This is mostly because I'm not happy with the audio quality on the Hyperx mic when recorded or streaming.

I don't get why it's so hard to find a simple operator/telemarketer style headset that's actually built well.
Still looking for an answer to this. MixAmps look like they're all USB and junk at this point. Does anyone even make something that you can pass the audio from the damn controllers through anymore (3.5mm controller->mixamp->headset)?

I just ordered a portable headphones amp to power my good headphones from the Xbox controller. This is probably your best bet.

But will a standard headphone amp work with a chat headset or screw up the mic?

I believe so. I’ve heard many people use this method.

Hit me up if you have any questions.

Thanks! Just remembered I ordered this and you'd said Sept. Amazon says 10/31 but I assume that's a placeholder date. Please let us know when you know the date, thanks!

Yeah, soon as the reviews are out in October(hopefully they advance some to the community experts), I'll be picking these up.

All I really want for gaming is a really good one of these that works for PS4 and Xbox. Even ones that are supposed to be "premium" have mixed reviews though. Never loud enough, break easy, etc. https://smile.amazon.com/Headset-Can.../dp/B075K3MY5W

BTW, if anyone is going to be at PAX Prime this weekend in Seattle, you can demo the LS35X at our booth and at Microsoft's booth.

Any ship date yet?

Great! I'll be anxiously awaiting my ship email

FYI Amazon now says This item will be released on October 10, 2018

edit: quick question - how do these charge? Just Micro USB like usual?

They use micro-USB to charge. Early reviews should start popping up soon.
About how long will we get on a full charge?

New Surface headphones just announced at the Surface event.

I could be interested if the performance will match the price tag and incorporates with the Xbox well.

Xbox and PS3 Gamertag = Xerostomia
Wii = I'm too lazy to get the number

Did he say $375? I don't think it's possible the performance will match the price.

Yes, I think the price will be $350. Here is a CNet review. Apparently MS has been working on this for the last 3 years in secret. I 'trust' that with a Surface label, it will be a premium product, perhaps over priced. The real question is if they will streamline the integration with the Xbox (I have to believe that they would). With 8 mics, the voice quality should be really good.

If the LS35X is similar to the LS30, then these headsets are garbage. Not sure why anyone would be hyped about these headsets? For wireless Rig 800 is probably the best, but stick with wired as it's the best way to go.

What specifically makes 'em garbage? Also, if wired was an option, the 35X wouldn't even be in play to begin with.

The LS30 is not highly rated and these 35's are similar just wireless. I'm saying it's just best to go wired over wireless. Best headsets are Hyper X Cloud Stinger, GSP 300, Arctis Pro, GSP 600.

"not highly rated" as what? where?

I like my LS20's. I want the fully wireless, no wires at all even to the controller. I want around ear instead of on ear. And I want under $200 new.

I had the A40's at launch. Wires suck. I had the A50's too. Still wired to the controller and had a lot of firmware issues with talkback.

No interest in wires anymore, so the L35x's are my choice to try for now. Even the Rig 800's have a wireless base. The L35x's connect direct with the WiDi on the Xbox One.

Same here. I've the TB Stealth 500X, and of course the ear cups snapped off the headband like most other owners. I'm waiting for some online reviews before I pull the trigger.

ok what the hell Amazon.

"Delivery date change for your Amazon.com order

New estimated delivery date:
Monday, October 15, 2018"

I was supposed to get these release day, today. After a year wait, I think I deserve that. What is going on? I was going to get them today and use them for a raid tonight.

edit:

I spoke to Amazon, and they said the manufacturer did not give them enough stock to cover the preorders. Which seems like a bad move, considering how long we've been waiting and the prep time available. Should have at least gone out in the order they were purchased.

Hope you like them. I cancelled my preorder pretty late. I just don't see myself using it much once the A16 gets here. I so rarely use a mic that my current setup is too hard to give up. I really hope it's great since there aren't many options for completely wireless.
