Immerse Yourself in the Future of Gaming Audio with the Xbox Wireless Headset

When we were designing Xbox Series X|S, we wanted to ensure that games feel true-to-life, load incredibly fast, and sound as if you were dropped in the middle of the action. We embraced spatial sound processing by including custom audio hardware to offload audio processing from the CPU, dramatically improving the accessibility, quality, and performance of these experiences. Having a high-quality set of headphones at an affordable price for your new console or existing Xbox One will help you feel immersed, react faster to the action, and connect further with your gaming worlds.

With each new generation of our Xbox accessories, we've raised the bar for innovation by focusing on performance, stand-out features, quality, and accessibility to deliver immersive experiences across console, PC, and mobile devices. We are excited to build on this legacy with the latest accessory to join the family: the new Xbox Wireless Headset.

Apple's Rumored Mixed-Reality Headset To Include Dual 8K Displays & Cost 3,000 USD

Apple has been rumored to be working on a mixed-reality device for some time now, expected to launch in 2022 and target the premium market. We have recently received information from a source with direct knowledge of the device who claims the new headset will feature dual 8K displays, eye tracking, inside out tracking, and swappable headbands. The report details a late-stage prototype device with a sleek curved visor design attached to the head with interchangeable headbands that offer features like spatial audio and extra battery.

The device would not include any traditional controllers instead relying on inputs such as eye movement, and hand gestures, or a physical finger ring device. The headset would include limited augmented reality features such as pass-through video from the over dozen cameras mounted on the device. The report also corroborates previous reports with an estimated price of 3,000 USD launching in 2022 and targeting first-year sales of 250,000 units before releasing a more advanced AR device in 2023.

Apple Reportedly Developing VR & AR Headsets For Launch in 2022 & 2023

The Apple VR headset codenamed N301 is currently in a late prototype stage and may be announced sometime in 2022, if this timeline holds then Apple may announce their AR glasses the next year in 2023.
