These are very solid headphones. The sound quality is great. For gaming, its solid, but what surprised me is how good these are for music as well.
They connect seamlessly with the xbox, and I haven’t had any connection issues thus far.
The audio quality over bluetooth is indistinguishable from the quality over the xbox connection. As opposed to the Arctis, whose bluetooth audio sounded significantly worse than its other audio connections.
The build quality is wonderful, except that the right dial on mine was a little bit less smooth than the left one, and it seems unintentional.
Comfort-wise, they are definitely too tight at first, but after breaking mine in by hand (not literally breaking them, but sort of stretching them out since they are quite flexible) they are maybe only 5% too tight. They are a bit too heavy, though. The built-in cooling gel feels really nice at first, but the feeling wears off after you’ve had them on for a while. Then they make your ears hot compared to the Arctis, which are lighter and cooler all around. But that is really one of few categories in which the Arctis wins, in my opinion. Putting these headphones on and feeling the cooling of the gel every time is so nice.
The EQ’s are solid, but not quite what I’d ideally like them to be. That’s the second place where the Arctis wins, since fully customizable EQ is a very nice feature that these are missing.
Ultimately, for $100 less than the Arctis Pro Wireless, these are wayyyy better. They are superior in every way except for being a bit less comfortable and lacking customizable EQ. Yeah the Arctis Pro Wireless has a second swapable battery, but the battery life on these is at least 50% longer than a charge of the Arctis from my experience. I literally haven’t had these die on me, after weeks of owning them.
Based on my experience with Arctis, I’m confident that these are better than the more comparable Arctis 9’s. Arctis’ tend to be buggy from my experience, and their audio is worse even with significant EQ adjustment. These are just a great value with the best quality you can expect from a gaming headset, which are know to cut corners and tack on a premium. These, the Lucidsound Ls50x, are definitely the way to go if you are an xbox player going wireless.
- It sounded great on various games, especially Warzone, which is the main game I needed it for.
-It’s quite the comfy headset as well, sits on the head firmly.
-The build quality has a very premium feel, weighs as if it’s made of higher end materials.
-Pretty hefty bass, sound is very detailed and accurate.
Now the BAD (dealbreaker for just about anyone)
-The mic is MUFFLED. If you take the time to look accross YouTube videos, reviews on Amazon as well as other websites, most of them have the same issue. The microphone sounds muffled, to the point your teammates can’t hear you sometimes especially during intense engagements. As one of my friend put it “you sound like you’re talking through a cup with a sock in your mouth”.
-Did all the research I could, so many forums with all the same issue. There’s an update for the Snoop Dog edition, since that variant of this headset dale out earlier, but this headset comes shipped with it preinstalled, so no point in trying to update.
-No amount of mic monitoring adjustments helped with the issue.
-From many others resolutions with this issue, it doesn’t seem like one exists, most got replacement mics that still didn’t work, or bad customer service. I’d like to save myself time with dealing with that route and just return it for one I know will work.
Do yourself a favor and pass on this one, it’s probably the perfect headset if it worked fully, but otherwise, if you’re gonna spend $250, spend it on one you know will work and don’t have to gamble on. Part of purchasing these high end items is their reliability and dependability. Sadly, this one came short, maybe one day they can maybe update the headset or figure something out.

LS50X looks great, it has this premium feel. Ear cups are large and very comfortable. The cooling gel is great. They are a bit heavy, but not too heave, it didn't bother me. The headband is comfortable, although not as much as the ski-goggle band on Arctis 9x. I really like the controls, pushing the ear caps is easy and works great. Volume and balance control is OK, it's a bit tricky to sometimes get it right, but it's not bad. The range is good, about a meter or two better than headsets that connect directly to the Xbox, without a dongle (9x, Thresher). Mic monitoring is loud and feels very natural, better than on Thresher and much much better than on 9x. It also stays on and doesn't need to be turned on every single time I turn on the headset. The sound is loud and clear, no issues there.
USB-C for charging! One less gadget that uses micro USB is always a good thing. Finally, the included case is really nice and not too bulky.
Turning it off is weird, you have to hold the button for about 3 seconds, but you don't get any notification when it's time to let it go. I just hold it for a while, and usually it's enough to turn it off, but I am never sure.
They turn off on their own every once and then. There is no warning, no message, I sometimes just stop hearing anything and I discover they are off. According to the manual that should happen when there is no sound coming either from Xbox or from Bluetooth for a while. But that's not the case, I can be playing a game and have sound constantly, and they would still turn off randomly.
The turning off issue could be just a faulty headset, but the next issue is by-design.
When you use the Bluetooth on LS50X to have a phone call while playing, everything that you are saying is sent both to your caller AND to Xbox at the same time. So all the people in the party or in the game chat can hear you talking on the phone. At least with the party chat it's relatively easy to go into settings and mute your own mic (although it still requires a couple of steps that should not be necessary, especially if you're in a hurry to pick up an incoming call, but it's not too difficult). As for the in-game chat, it depends on the game. Gears of War, for instance, don't offer this functionality. When I emailed support asking how to mute my own in-game chat on Xbox, I got instructions for disabling it in Call of Duty. If you only play COD, I suppose that's not a deal breaker... What's worse, that seems to be by design. The white model of this headset (the Snoop edition) originally would only send the microphone input over Bluetooth during a phone call, not to in-game/party chat. But since it has been released, a firmware update changed this behaviour to always send microphone input everywhere. Which means it was an explicit decision to do that. Why would anybody think that's a good idea? That's beyond me... Unfortunately the black model comes with the firmware already updated, and I couldn't find a way to downgrade it.
Great hardware, poor firmware. If you can only have a single headset but need both Xbox and Bluetooth, I suppose it's a valid choice. But you can probably get two great headsets, one just for Xbox one just for Bluetooth and still pay less than what this costs. If you are thinking of using both Xbox and Bluetooth for phone calls at the same time - don't bother, it will only frustrate you. Try Arctis 9x, they don't have this issue. Or the Snoop version of LS50X, just don't upgrade the firmware.
If it was just randomly turning off, I'd try the support, maybe there is something that can be fixed, or I could get them replaced. But the concurrent microphone use is a deal breaker for me, so I am returning them, and I will wait for something that does it right. Or a firmware update that addresses this issue, if it ever comes out.
