LucidSound, the company behind one of the best headsets we’ve had the pleasure of reviewing here on the site has announced that they are shipping their second headset, The LS20.
Following the successful launch of the Company’s LS30 headset, receiving critical acclaim earlier this year, the LS20 broadens the range and redefines what gamers’ can expect at a sub $100 price point.
Similar to the LS30 the LS20 Combins high-fidelity audio with a uniquely intuitive control scheme. it incorporates a built-in rechargeable Lithium-ion battery providing up to 20 hours of powered amplification when used with console, PC/Mac, or mobile devices. The LS20 provides exceptionally powerful and vibrant audio, ideal for experiencing every nuance of game audio while being able to clearly converse with online teammates. Featuring Active (amplified) and Passive (unpowered) modes, should the headset run out of battery power, the passive mode continues to provide high-quality audio even when powered off.
Taking design cues from the LS30, the LS20 features the same acclaimed ear-cup controls allowing gamers to instantly and intuitively access game-volume, game-mute, and mic-mute. Plug in a smartphone and volume, mute, mic mute, call, and playback controls are all at the gamers’ fingertips built into the headset. 40mm speakers with neodymium magnets provide deep bass and clear highs, complete with the carefully crafted, signature LucidSound audio acoustics. Bass-Boost enhances the low-end yet further, ideal for FPS games and built-in mic-monitoring allows players to hear their own voice through the headset. Lastly, the LS20 features a removable boom mic as well as an integrated hidden mic, affording truly universal use and sporting an understated design that uses premium materials including an aluminium frame.
“Our debut headset was met with overwhelmingly positive reviews from media and gamers alike and we’re pleased to expand our range through the shipping of our LS20, a product designed to disrupt the category with quality and a feature set previously unseen at this price point,” said Chris Von Huben, CEO of LucidSound. “Many gamers are drawn to the idea of a premium gaming headset, but are reluctant or unable to spend above a certain threshold. There are limited quality options available to the gamer below $100 and we think the LS20 provides the perfect balance of quality and affordability. Our audio engineers have worked tirelessly to deliver best-in-class audio, intuitive controls and simple, beautiful aesthetics that allow gamers to enjoy the headset throughout their daily lives. We believe that this simple but enticing package will allow us to grow our market share and expand our global footprint as we head into the holidays.”
The LS20 Amplified Universal Gaming Headset is compatible with a wide range of gaming formats including the PlayStation®4, Xbox One, PC/MAC, mobile phones, and smart devices.
