Gigabyte's XH300 headset hits all the right notes


— 9:00 AM on December 1, 2016

Gigabyte announced the fancy-looking XH300 headset at CES earlier this year, and it seems it's headed for an imminent release. The headset is displayed prominently in the company's social media pages, making an appearance on Gigabyte's Facebook and Twitter feeds.

The XH300 offers a set of features that should make it competitive with other headsets on the market. 50-mm drivers power the stereo sound, which can be delivered through a 3.5-mm audio jack or a USB port. The included RGB LED lighting is only available when using the USB connection, though. The headset's adjustable uni-directional mic can be lifted out of the way when not in use.

The headset's build focuses on a lightweight feel, with flexible tubing and a suspension band for a better fit on gamers' noggins, and mesh-fabric earcups to let the ears and skin breathe a little. Audio control is handled through an in-line volume roller located on the headset's cable.

Despite Gigabyte peppering us with posts about the XH300 on its social media sites, we don't know a whole lot about the headset aside from its specs. The orange-and-black color scheme is becoming common amongst gaming-grade peripherals, so we imagine that price and comfort will likely be the headset's best way to stand out from the crowd.
