Who says you have to spend an arm and a leg on decent headphones? The Xbox stereo headphones that were announced today Xbox Wire is available for booking in advance at Microsoft Store for only $ 60. According to the blog entry, Xbox wants to add "more value to the category of incoming headphones."
Because of their appearance, Xbox stereo headphones share many of the same features as their wireless counterpart, the Xbox wireless headphones, one of the Best Headphones for Wireless Gaming I used it this year. You still have volume controls built into the big, soft headphones, and while it doesn’t have Bluetooth, the headphones have a 3.5mm headphone jack, which was much lacking in the more expensive version. You miss the accented green finishes that were on the wireless version, but the headphone jack is green, so yeah!
The $ 60 price tag is very competitive in a crowded category of headphones, and if these headphones use the same 40mm drivers as the wireless version, which was already aggressively priced at $ 100, it's a big deal. However, I would love to see the full technology specifications before I get too excited.
The Xbox stereo headphones will be released on September 21 for $ 60 and are available for pre-book now.
