Microsoft released a wireless headset a few months ago, and most people who gave it a shot absolutely loved it. Now, the company has announced a more affordable version of the headset that drops the wireless functionality while still maintaining most of what made the headset great.
The headset is officially called the Xbox Stereo Headset, and it features a $59.99 price tag. That is pretty reasonable for a headset that offers solid audio quality specifically designed to take advantage of the Xbox. Of course, it features a 3.5mm plug, so it can also be used with PC and mobile devices as well. If you choose, this can be your go-to headset for gaming, music, podcasts, and just about anything else you could want to listen to.
While the headset is budget-friendly, Microsoft promises that it features clear microphone performance and high-quality ear cushions. Like the more expensive Xbox Wireless Headset, it features easily accessible on-ear controls for volume and mute, which are great for adjusting your audio experience quickly.
