Good for bigger heads, and good space for ears. Not the most comfortable for long game play. Audio settings not very customizable, u get what u get.... microphone doesn't block out background settings that well, which doesn't matter if u live alone i guess... they don't have Bluetooth to link to phone for example, so would be strictly for gaming..

They are good. But must do firmware update out the gate. They are old school loud. I've gone through some recent headsets and these have the ear bleeding volume if you wish. Also you can buy replacement ear cups or boom mic from LucidSound website when needed.

I've used the PS4/PC version of these for a while (LS31) and I think they're fantastic. It's the same headset but without the native Xbox wireless pairing chipset. No headset will natively pair with BOTH xbox and playstation due to licensing issues.

I was shopping around for a headset that I could use for all my gaming systems (PS4, XB1, PC, Switch) with as little fuss as possible as well as take with me for traveling and I tried several different ones.

It ended up coming down to Lucidsound vs. the Arctis 1 wireless

I really liked the Arctis' usability and they were extremely comfortable on the head but their ear cups were a little shallow so my ear's rubbed on them a bit.

But the biggest complaint I had was that even at max volume the headset was just too quiet.
I tried two different sets thinking maybe I got a bad one at first but that's just how they are designed.
Many other folks have similar complaints from what I found....so it's not my hearing


I like a little boom so I looked for something that could deliver a punch.

The LS31s get PLENTY LOUD and still sound great.

The only issue I had with my Lucidsound was that the ear cups would make my ears hot after a bit. I ended up buying the cooling gel pads from their site and they made a HUGE difference. I can wear them for hours and hours now. This LS35x model comes with the cooling pads out of the box.

They are a tad less comfortable overall than the Arctis but they are still far better than most other headsets I've tried. HyperX was another very comfortable model I tried but they didn't sound nearly as good.


You just need to pay attention to which model you are buying and how it works with other consoles if you plan to use more than one. The LS35x will pair natively with the xbox and allow you to hear game and chat audio totally wirelessly. With any other console it requires the cable plugged into the controller and limits sound quality.

The LS31 model that I have is actually a little more versatile but would require the chat cable to be plugged in to hear voice chat while connected to Xbox. If you just want game audio, it works great wirelessly with the dongle


There was also an issue with the plastic on the hinges above the ear cups beginning to wear and crack which some other folks had as well. I contacted Lucidsound and they sent me another brand new set with no issues....so bonus points for great customer service.

It's a smaller company but I've been really happy with my headsets and would get another one from them for sure.

I've been rocking LucidSound for about 3 years now and also think they're the best mid-range headset you can buy (in terms of wireless "gaming"). Obviously you can build a much better DIY headset for gaming, but it's not going to be plug and play wireless like these are.

I've had the LS20, 30 and now the 41. My 20 is still going with no issues (3 years now) but the plastic on the 30 began to crack after about a year of HEAVY use. I'm talking 8+ hours pretty much every single day of the year and constant switching from PS4 to PC for gaming/work.

When the 30 started to fall apart, I contacted support, sent pics of the cracking plastic, and Micah (the support GOD) sent me a brand new LS41 with no questions asked. Because of this f***ing unbelievable customer support, I'm pretty much a lifelong customer. Micah even stated that the LS30 had widespread durability issues for people with wide heads like I have (both the headband and ear-cup hinge clamps cracked. I guess fat heads just stress the plastic too much, but so far the LS41 is almost a year old and I've had zero issues.

The only other wireless "gaming" brand I'd consider is SteelSeries, but I've seen so many horror stories regarding broken plastic and horrendous customer support that I'm not willing to give them a shot. There's absolutely no way in hell they'd ever send you a new headset with no questions asked, and if they did, they'd require you to return the old one and go through the whole RMA process.

I've messed with Corsair headsets too, recently. Both went straight back to Best Buy because I wasn't happy.

LucidSound is a newer company, but they really do have some great products. Most underrated audio brand in gaming, no doubt.

Costco also sells them from time to time, so that's another huge plus, as you can always return them if you're unhappy or something breaks outside of the manufacturer warranty.

My kid was looking at some turtle beach for Xbox one that were sold out everywhere (even refurbs) and just saw these at game stop and had me them, said they were well reviewed and $130 is a solid price. He wanted wireless without needing dongle or anything and these are supposed to get it done. He works and has his own money so he has learned to research. I look forward to his review.
