With surround sound, unrivalled on a dedicated gaming headset, the LS40 dramatically enhances competitive online gaming.
With DTS Headphone:X technology working in harmony with LucidSound custom tuned drivers, gamers can enjoy audiophile-grade 7.1 surround sound, which remains crisp and exceptionally detailed thanks to uncompressed wireless technology. Advanced channel-hoping engineering actively searches for the optimum wireless connection, dramatically reducing interference and providing a rock-solid signal with the console or host device. In addition, the LS40 features two distinct surround-sound modes and three enhanced stereo modes, catering to all forms of media. Each mode is announced to the gamer via a voice prompt allowing for easy mode selection.
The LucidSound signature control scheme returns with enhanced features allowing gamers to individually alter game and chat volume simply by rotating the ear-cup. The LS40allows easy adjustment of controls with no need to search for buttons or ungainly rockers or switches. All-new smartphone control provides full support for cell phones allowing gamers to take a call, hang up, and control audio playback using the discrete button fashioned into the center of the earcup.
Designed for sustained gaming sessions the integrated rechargeable battery provides up to 15 hours of uninterrupted use and a new selectable on/off mic-monitoring system allows players to hear their own voice through their headset.
“It’s been less than a year since the inception of our first headset and we continue to strive to bring new levels of excitement and innovation to gamers,” said Chris Von Huben, CEO of LucidSound. “Our single biggest request from gamers is for the introduction of a surround sound headset and we’re confident that the highly anticipated LS40will set a new benchmark for premium gaming audio, proving well worth the wait.
