Hey! I have a very first-world gamer problem that I would love the community’s help/advice on.
Currently, I have a series S at my desk and I currently have no ideal way of having audio from my PC and my xbox Series S at the same time. I need this as I talk to friends using Teamspeak + sometimes put a podcast or video on while I play
I currently stream my xbox to my PC just for audio and play normally however this completely bricks some games. I have seen that the SteelSeries ARCTIS NOVA PRO WIRELESS enable me to connect to both my PC and xbox at once however my experience with their headset has been poor, to say the least!
Is there any other alternative that I could use? Currently, I have a pair of HD650s that id love to use if possible but I am open to other headphones if required
The Lucid’s that do bluetooth and xbox are supposedly some of the best out there if price isn’t an issue. Like the others though I use the Xbox Wireless Headset from Microsoft and it works fantastically for the price.
Currently, using the xbox wireless headset. It is the easiest option.
Before, I used to do the following: If your monitor has a headset jack, connect it with a male-male audio cable to the mic input on your PC. Then, on your PC, you can monitor the “mic” (xbox sound) on your usual headset connected to your PC.
Thank you for the suggestion I previously had the wireless steelseries pro version of those. However they feel apart really quickly (same happened to a friend) and weren’t the most comfortable headphones! That said there swappable batteries are a feature that all wireless headphones should have
You won’t be disappointed. It hits way above what its price point would suggest. I use it just like you want to and it works flawlessly.
Sound is great, it’s easy to control the two different inputs, mic quality is great, it’s comfortable… Quality is great too, I have used mine every day since they were released so coming up on two years soon and they are as good as new.
You can also replace the headset cushions if you want or need to for not sweating the ears. The popular replacement parts seem to cover a lot of different makes, including the Xbox Wireless Headset despite them not listing it:
