Our review of the LucidSound LS10X gaming headset
The LucidSound LS10X they are gaming headphones simple but effective that promise a remarkable gaming experience at a more than competitive price. Let’s find out more.
The LS10X are wired headphones with one more than classic style but no less elegant. A nuance of blacks and dark grays characterizes the pavilions and the solid plastic structure. I’m very comfortable to wearthanks to lightweight materials and a fair amount of padding on the pavilions and also on the headband that rests on the head. These features, combined with the weight of just 256gmake them very light so as not to weigh you down during longer gaming sessions.
The headphones come with a 3.5mm Jack input which makes it compatible for Xbox, to attach to controller, but also PCs, smartphones and tablets. The dual microphone system includes a removable and flexible microphone with a red LED that indicates when the microphone is muted. In the headphones there is also a internal microphone which works when the removable is not present. This is more effective for smartphone calls than for in-game use. When the external microphone is not present, it is possible to insert a handy silicone plugincluded in the package, to cover the entrance and prevent it from filling up with dust.
THE pavilions offer remarkable comfort, thanks to the memory foam coverand mount a 50 mm speaker. The right pavilion doubles as Quick-Access Controls. In short, it allows you to raise and lower the volume simply by turning the outer part. By clicking it instead, you can change the microphone. These are simple but quick commands that hide perfectly in the design of the headphones.
Moving on to the more technical side the LucidSound LS10X boast Windows Sonic surround sound quality. We are faced with a technology designed specifically to guarantee immersive surround sound on Xbox being a headset made under Official License for Xbox Series X |S. The loudspeakers, we recall from 50 mm, also ensure deep bass and crisp highs.
The double microphone guarantees a remarkable recording quality, far from professional microphones but perfectly in line with the types of headphones and above all considering the price of these (which we will see later).
Our test of the LucidSound LS10X
During our test we tested the LucidSound LS10X practically everywhere and we were delighted with their adaptability. Although they are designed to work best on the Xbox Series X | S and Xbox Onewe used these LucidSounds on PCon Smartphoneon Tableton Nintendo Switch and even on an older one Nintendo DS. The headphones worked great on all devices. The length of the cable, just over a meter, is in fact suitable for using headphones on a portable console or attached to the controller. If used on a PC, it can be quite short especially if the case is not really close at hand.
With the LucidSound LS10X we have played both casual video games and the most competitive video games and challenging. For the latter, the surround effect proves to be more than useful for understanding the movements of the enemies and predicting their positioning. In this regard, the audio controls have proved to be very effective, fast and super intuitive: acting directly on the outside of the pavilion is very simple as well as fun.
There versatility of headphones is reflected not only in compatible devices, but also in the variety of uses. The quality is optimal not only with video games but also with music, movies and TV series. A pair of headphones for all entertainment.
