Conclusion and Final Thoughts
With everything that LucidSound put into the LS30, I expected this headset to go for $200. Instead, it’s a steal at $150. $150 gets you a multi-platform wireless headset, packed with onboard controls, great looks, and overall respectable sound presentation. LucidSound found a way to provide you with, at the very least, wireless inbound uncompressed sound quality for two current gen and two previous gen consoles. Xbox made it tricky for many headset manufacturers to establish completely wireless solutions a price lower than $200. The LS30 gives you 100% of its functionality with cable usage only necessary should you want to chat. They even provide you with the cables. Otherwise, if you’re playing by yourself or just watching a movie, you can still have a 100% wireless experience.
The onboard controls are quick to pick up and easy to use. I’ll take independent onboard control of my game and chat volumes over the use of a balancer, any day.
The LS30 is also a comfortable headset that looks quite attractive for outdoors wear. I’m not saying that I haven’t worn gaming headsets outdoors. I’m just saying that a headset that looks like this actually masks the fact that it’s a gaming headset. The LS30 is a versatile headset ready to handle practically any gaming or listening scenario, and it does so effectively. For anyone that’s looking for a headset for the PS3, PS4, Xbox 360 or the Xbox One, the LS30 is a headset you must consider. If you’re sold, it’s available at retail right around the corner on Monday, 3/14/2016. Do check it out for yourself here.
