LucidSound LS40 Surround Sound Headset Now Shipping
LucidSound have announced today the they are officially shipping of the LS40 Wireless Surround Universal Gaming Headset, their flagship headset in the LucidSound range. First announced at the E3 Electronic Expo earlier in the year, the LS40 is the first headset in the range to deliver surround sound audio, the feature most requested since LucidSound began shipping their debut headset, early in 2016.
Powered byDTS Headphone:X audio technology, LucidSounds audio engineers have worked closely with the team based at DTS to accurately tune the 50mm Neodymium drivers, resulting in highly detailed positional audio, specially crafted for gaming. LucidSound states that gamerw will be able to pinpoint every enemy footstep, approaching threat, and track teammates in battle – even from behind – as this provides an enormous advantage resulting in a more thrilling gaming experience and notably improving the performance of the player.
With DTS Headphone:X technology working in harmony with LucidSound custom tuned drivers, gamers will be able to enjoy audiophile-grade 7.1 surround sound, which remains crisp and exceptionally detailed thanks to uncompressed wireless technology. Advanced channel-hoping engineering actively searches for the optimum wireless connection, dramatically reducing interference and providing a rock-solid signal with the console or host device. In addition, the LS40 features two distinct surround-sound modes and three enhanced stereo modes, catering to all forms of media. Each mode is announced to the gamer via a voice prompt allowing for easy mode selection.
The LucidSound signature control scheme also returns with enhanced features allowing gamers to individually alter game and chat volume simply by rotating the ear-cup. The LS40 allows easy adjustment of controls with no need to search for buttons or ungainly rockers or switches. All-new smartphone control provides full support for cell phones allowing gamers to take a call, hang up, and control audio playback using the discrete button fashioned into the center of the earcup.
Designed for sustained gaming sessions the integrated rechargeable battery provides up to 15 hours of uninterrupted use and a new selectable on/off mic-monitoring system allows players to hear their own voice through their headset.
We are hoping to have a review of this headset as soon as we can, and well let you know when we can do it.
