Xbox and PC headset with ANC and Bluetooth?

Hey everyone,

 

I'm looking at upgrading my aging Corsair Vengeance 1500v2 headset for my PC and would like to also replace my (competing brand) Xbox headset.

 

I know Corsair recently released the HS75 headset for the Xbox that is almost perfect, but I'm disappointed in the lack of Bluetooth connectivity and also the fact the headset does not support Active Noise Cancellation on the speaker (not the mic side).

 

Is there any chance that Corsair are going to release a "HS75 Premium" edition that builds on the solid foundation of the current headset but incorporates bluetooth? If they can also add ANC to the headset I know from searching online they will satisfy a currently vacant gap in the market as I don't seem to be able to find any Xbox Series S compatible headsets that support ANC!

 

Please Corsair, release an improved HS75 with bluetooth and ANC!

Hi M_Taylor40,

 

Thanks for your suggestions - I think there's definitely a general interest in ANC headsets. Personally, one big concern I see would be integrating a viable battery life for an ANC gaming headset. If we look at Bose's QuietComfort 35 Series 2 Gaming Headset for example, they chose to go for the wired connection despite the base QuietComfort 35 II being a wireless headphone.

Hi Corsair Albert,

 

Thanks for your response.

 

I agree that battery life would be a concern for some, but I believe this could be mitigated by allowing the user to turn the ANC feature on/off as desired, while specifying the battery life of the headset with the feature off/on as 20h/12h as other manufacturers do.

 

As for the PC connection this could be primarily using Bluetooth with the ANC feature selectable but in the case of a low battery, provide the ability to use the USB connection to effectively use the headset as a wired USB headset (again with or without ANC enabled).

 

In all honesty I would mainly use the ANC feature when playing games that heavily rely on audio cues for gameplay or setting the atmosphere, but also when the world returns to normal and I'm working in an office again I would love to block out any distracting noise from my coworkers :D:. At other times the ANC feature could be disabled to provide better battery life and I would be very happy with the compromise.

 

Obviously the option to include a larger capacity battery that supports fast charge would sweeten the deal, but for me personally a 12h battery life with ANC enabled would be enough as I would just need it to get through a working day and possibly a few hours of gaming on a night after my children are in bed.

 

Hopefully you will be able to figure out the best way to implement ANC as there's definitely a gap in the market, and I'd rather have a headset with a suitable design that I can use at home and work like the HS75 rather than some of the slightly hideous designs that some companies use (looking at sandy aquatic animals there! ;):)

 

Thanks,
