Headsets are a plenty in the gaming space now, you can pick up ones with massive amounts of lights, sharp corners, and additional gimmicks. Most are aimed at PC, with other manufacturers concentrating their efforts in either the console market or desktop gaming scene. However, it is hard to find a headset that ticks all the boxes for all of your technological devices and not falls prey to the “gamer” effect, making them look garish.
After spending a few weeks with the LucidSound LS-40 headset, it seems like the company has attempted to bridge the gap even further from their previous model the LS-30. They have done a pretty darn good job at doing it too for £179.99.
LucidSound since their creation as a company, moving away from other headset companies have concentrated their efforts on making a gaming headset that does not look like one. The style resembles the high-end headphones you’d find in a retailer; great build quality, light and comfortable while adding their ingenuity on top to make it work as both a wired or wireless headset with a range of different connectable options.
A 3.5mm cable can be plugged into the base of the headset turning it wired, or if can connect up wirelessly by using a USB dongle. Having a detachable audio cable is a great addition, as jack cables are not usually that tough, breaking after extended uses and usually making a solid connection to the headset render the whole thing useless. It’s a shame that the headset does not support Bluetooth to make a connection via mobile phones easier and wire-free.
