Just in time for E3, LucidSound unveils a pair of new wireless gaming headsets. Expected to launch in time for this year's holiday shopping season, the new headsets combine advanced audio engineering with the latest in modern design aesthetics to provide a next-generation audio experience for all gamers.
Following the company’s LS30 debut headset, the LS40 introduces DTS Headphone:X audio technology. Featuring 50mm drivers, the headset's sound is tuned in-house by LucidSound audio engineers to deliver "audiophile-grade" 7.1 surround sound. In addition, gamers can select between two surround-sound modes (movie and gaming) and three enhanced stereo modes, (regular, wide and front speaker) to further customize their audio preference. The LS40 also utilizes advanced uncompressed wireless technology that is designed to eliminate interference. Furthermore, gamers can individually alter game and chat volume without needing to locate ungainly buttons, and the all-new Smartphone Control provides full support for cell phones, allowing gamers to take a call, hang up and control audio playback using the ear-cup alone. LucidSound says the headset's integrated rechargeable battery provides as many as 15 hours of uninterrupted gaming and its built in mic-monitoring allows players to hear their own voice through their headset.
The other newly-announced gaming headset, the LS20, combines high-fidelity audio and advanced gaming control. Compact enough to be portable, yte large enough to be powerful, the LS20 is sleek, discrete, and remarkably adept at rising to the challenge of any and all audio environments. Featuring "Active" and "Passive" modes, the LS20 features a built in rechargeable battery, providing powered amplification when used with console, PC/MAC, or mobile. It also works as a regular wired headset when the battery is powered down.
“In the run up to the yearly E3 Electronics Expo we have once again seen an influx of gaming headsets announced, all of which adhere to the typical gaming aesthetic: lighting up for no apparent reason, gimmicky features which distract from sub-par audio and awkward, angular designs which we believe hold little appeal to the modern adult gamer. LucidSound is forging a new path, focusing on real innovation and intelligent design with a gaming lifestyle appeal we believe has yet to be seen in this category,” said Chris Von Huben, CEO of LucidSound. “Gamers and media have reacted with overwhelming positivity to our debut product and we’re excited to launch our two new headsets which we believe will help us build market share and address new sectors of the market with hardware we believe gamers will love.”
The LS40 gaming headset features universal compatibility with practically any gaming platform and can be used with PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, PC/MAC, mobile phones, and other smart devices,. The LS20 is compatible with PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC/MAC, mobile phones, and other smart devices.
