LucidSound brings the noise at E3

The video game industry is constantly evolving. From high-powered hardware and consoles to video games that adapt to the decisions you make, there’s no denying that video games are beginning to become more immersive. As that landscape changes, gaming peripherals aim to stay ahead of the competition by creating products that take your gaming to the next level, and one of those is sound. During E3 we had a chance to check out some brand new headsets from LucidSound, a newcomer in the world of gaming headsets.

Here are a few of the headsets we got to check out during our visit with LucidSounds.

It has the same oval earcups as the LS31 to deliver maximum comfort and noise isolation. The headset will feature a DTS 7.1 Surround sound to deliver rich, dynamic audio for all current gen consoles. The LS41 will also come with a new and improved USB transmitter which will allow for much-improved placement when connecting to your console.

The LS41 retails for $199.99 and will be available later this year.

Personally, I own several gaming headsets, which are all great in their own way, but when I had a chance to listen to the audio that LucidSounds’ headsets produce, I was blown away. It was loud, rich, dynamic, and definitely delivered a punch. Even at the highest volume, I didn’t notice any type of distortion. Using the LS35X while playing Call of Duty WWII gave me a sense of immersion as I heard the snaps and cracks of heavy gunfire. One great feature that I liked about LucidSounds headset designs were that microphones and ear-cups were easily detachable. So if you were ever to break or lose them, you can buy them separately directly from their website.
