This new headset is unique as it stands out for its hybrid positioning. this new headset is, however, seems to be destined for the video gaming enthusiasts, as well as a nomadic use when one connects it to a smartphone for example.
For gaming, the headset takes advantage of a new design. According to Logitech, it is equipped with a hydrophobic mesh and anti-stain fabric , as well as a soft but resistant plastic. In addition to the two original bags, also made of cloth, this one is made of microfiber, which in the end gives us a very light headset: barely 259g without cable.

The DTS reserved for the PC
If the headset is compatible with PCs, PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and mobile devices, only the PC, unfortunately, takes advantage of the DTS Headphone X.
