I have one and ironically the headband broke this week which is why I was searching for deals. I thinj the break was my fault although I don't remember stepping on it. Regardless I am buying another and I'm glad I found this deal. I considered upgrading to the LS40 but with this deal I just don't think it is worth it.

I will say that this is the overall best headset I've ever owned. Before this I was exclusively upgrading Astro headsets every year so I genuinely buy high quality gaming headsets. LS headsets have great sound, are comfortable, and the ability to easily switch and mute the chat and game audio on the fly is amazing. I highly recommend.

On thing I will mention is that the dual channel (chat and gaming) setup can be finicky and requires a bit of tech savvy to keep it going well.

edit: also just a heads up you will need an optical audio in to get the dual channel audio working.

Saw these at Costco a while back and been keeping my eye on them. Have the Turtle Beach 420X+ but are slightly uncomfortable and buttons are kinda hard to find. Hopefully these are a great substitution.

Reviews are terrible, I'm sure it was never worth the 150$ to begin with. That's not how you determine a deal

Not sold by Amazon, just fulfilled by them. Makes me wonder how the warranty would handle that, as I know some companies are flakey when not sold by authorized dealer.

I wanted th really like the LS30 for XB1, sound is great but chat is terrible for other ppl due to spastic static bursts. I turned on IPv6, updated controller software, everything could think of.. could never chat during games so they went back to Costco.

I also had a lot of complaints from my friends regarding chat quality but I found an easy fix: I bought a cheap foam cover for the microphone. The mic is super sensitive, adding a foam cover dampens it & I no longer have any complaints for my mic quality.

Overall this is an excellent headset and a great deal. A little while ago the left ear cover on mine developed a tear along the seam (probably from using them too much while exercising & sweaty). I contacted LucidSound for a replacement and they sent me replacement covers for both left & right ear covers free of charge even though these were long out of warranty. Great gaming headset from a great company.

I just received mine and it didn't work on my Windows 10 PC. After detecting it, the device disappears immediately. I tried to update firmware and still no luck (https://lucidsound.zendesk.com/hc...are-update). By the way, you will need provide your own mini-USB cable to update firmware for the headset, since the cable in the box doesn't transmit data. Go figure.

I am returning this.
