Right now I have about four headphones at home, one for the Xbox, one for the Play, one for the computer, and others with the best sound, but no audio input. This is because wireless headphones for consoles usually have to be first party to work wirelessly.
That is, there are few wireless headphones compatible with consoles and as beautiful as the new Xbox headset is, you cannot use it on the PlayStation 5.
As strange as it sounds, most compatibility issues between wireless headphones and consoles would be fixed with an optional audio jack port, although this would, of course, take the “wireless” out of the matter.
Barracuda X: Wireless compatibility on dozens of devices
Razer’s new headphones, called Barracuda X, do have the famous port, but they also offer a USB-C transmitter. This connects to various devices and thus the hearing aids can be used wirelessly. This with low latency and with great audio quality.
No need or link, just connect this transmitter to the PlayStation or Switch to start using the headphones wirelessly. In the case of the PlayStation 5, it even supports the console’s famous “three-dimensional” audio.
Unfortunately, on Xbox it is another story. While it is not possible to use them wirelessly with that USB-C transmitter, the headphones are still compatible using the included audio cable. And like other headphones or headsets, it supports Dolby Atmos to enhance audio, as long as you are willing to pay extra for this application.
And if you’re looking to connect them wirelessly to a device or PC, but don’t have a USB-C port, the solution also comes in the box, with a USB-A cable with a USB-C adapter.
For all the above, the Razer Barracuda X are a great option if you are looking for a single headset for all your platforms, both wired and wireless. They also have a fairly competitive price that is among the $ 2,400 Mexican pesos.
