Controls

The control mechanisms are spread between the left and the right ear cup, while the power button is on the left ear cup. It also serves as a pairing button. Similarly, you have a mute button and an audio balance dial on the left ear cup. On the other hand, the right ear cup features a dial for adjusting the volume level.

Features

The wireless protocol on the Xbox Wireless Headset has been configured for low latency and lossless audio. It supports some of the most advanced spatial sound technologies including Windows Sonic, Dolby Atmos, and DTS Headphone: X. Attempts have also been made to improve the chat audio quality. Xbox Wireless Headset comes with a dual beamforming microphone that can distinguish between a user’s speech and background noise. The headset has been specifically tuned to only pick the voice instead of the background noise.

You can use the mute button when you are not speaking to clear the communication channel. Alternately, you can even turn on the auto-mute feature. When enabled, this will automatically mute the microphone. You can even check whether your mic is active or not thanks to the indicator light.

Furthermore, you can even customize the sound experience using the Xbox Accessories app. The app is compatible with Xbox One, Xbox Series X, Series S, and Windows 10 systems. It lets you play with the equalizer, bass boost, auto-mic sensitivity, mic monitoring, and brightness of the indicator light.
