E3 2016: Lucid Sound Heaphones Ears-On

Lucid is hoping to change the landscape of affordable gaming focused headsets that were the focus of the companies’ E3 2016 offerings. Consisting of the readily available LS30 headphones and the upcoming LS40 & LS50 headsets, LiquidSound is poised to offer a range of headsets whose features rival their competition. Don’t count out LiquidSound just yet because I’ve been using a pair of LS30s for all of the video editing that I’ve done during the convention. Read on to find out why you should give these up & coming headphones a listen before choosing your next gaming headset.

The LS40 is compatible with all of the major consoles including the PS4, Xbox One and Xbox 360 as well as any devices that is compatible with a standard 3.55MM jack, so if you’re like me and you can’t live with your iphone then the LS40 might be your new best-friend. In the box owners will find a standard 3.55MM cable, a 3.5MM to 2.5MM cable, a wireless dongle and a USB charging cable. That’s right, using their own proprietary 2.4GHZ wireless standard owners can plug-in the included USB dongle to their console for wire free quality sound. Just make sure to charge your headset before you use it because the hardware inside of the Liquid Sound LS40 requires power from an internal battery.

I’ve used the LS30s for the entirety of my E3 experience as well as casual relaxing after the convention. While doing the hour long demo for Nintendo’s stunning The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild through the Wii-U Gamepad’s built in headphone jack. The LS30’s noise cancelling & cushioning pleather cover drowned out the sound of 100s of others also playing the game quite well and allowed me to become fully immersed in the land of Hyrule for the entire demonstration.

You can find out more information about these headphones at their official site. Please be on the lookout for our full review in the coming weeks once we’ve had a chance to try the headset in a full environment.
