Gigabyte’s XH300 headset hits all the right notes

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.

    ‘Gaming’ headphones = garbage.

    And now, garbage with RGBLEDs

      They might be okay, but you’re better off buying some comfortable open circumaural cans like those of the Sennheiser HD5xx series and getting a decent separate mic.

        Indeed. Even entry level cans from a real headphone company almost always sound better and if one cares about voice quality at all, a cheap condenser will outdo any headset mic. The combined cost can often end up being cheaper than many USB headsets

        Atleast this one doesn’t have a million sound channels and looks like it may be reasonably priced…

    Round and bulky headphones suck, they’re not ergonomic.

      ‘Round and bulky’ is how you get sound out of headphones that doesn’t suck.

    I guess there must be a market for these flashy LED-ridden things. I would also guess that market doesn’t typically read TR. 🙂

      Make it a Disco Mirror Ball and we’ll flock all over it.

      Cheers!

        Don’t forget the glossy black plastic!

      Judging by the number of posts TR makes about LED crapware, that might not be true.
