LucidSound’s E3 2018 Headset Lineup – Audiophile’s Bliss
LucidSound is known for their sleek, sexy headsets, and if you’ve had the chance to use one, you’ll know why. This year at E3, they had an impressive lineup of headsets that I had the privilege to demo, and they were amazing! Previously, their headsets had circular ear cups, but they’ve now switched to more oval-shaped cups. This is definitely a good call, because my only complaint about their headsets before were that they would crush the top and bottom of my ear. Even with their super squishy ear-cups, after an hour or so, they’d start to get sore. It should be noted that I have somewhat big, stupid looking ears, sometimes makes hats look really dumb, and headsets really uncomfortable. Now though, I’ve got no complaints, and they went one step further to really wow me. Now, they’ve got this amazing cooling gel inside of the ear cups that goes on top of the foam in the headset (the part that’s against your skin). It stays cool the whole time you’re using the headset (and somehow makes them even more squishy and comfy).
Below, you can catch the official press release from the guys and gals at E3 for some more specific info. Don’t judge me, it was a lot to write, so copying and pasting was more viable.
