While the major hardware manufacturers in the gaming industry have their own lines of official accessories that will accompany you on your console experience, there are also third-party options that are worth paying attention to. For example, JBL Quantum 360X is positioned as the wireless headset designed for use with an Xbox Series S and X.

JBL Quantum 360X are mid-range wireless headphones that allow you to have a gaming experience without audio delays while adding some advanced features developed by the same manufacturer. Their Bluetooth connectivity does not prevent them from being used from a computer, mobile device or even a Nintendo Switch , so you will have limitations in sight.

Logically, the visual style has been one of the first decisions that the manufacturer has made in its intention to approach the Xbox ecosystem, so this time you will have a single version for sale that combines black color on most of its structure but with a green stripe on the inside of his headband as well as on the pads.

Precisely with respect to its clothing, it can be noted that the JBL Quantum 360X is based on resistant plastic on its exterior but also some PU-coated viscoelastic foam pads so that your ears feel comfortable and pressure-free after long periods of use. The total weight is 252 grams.

Broadly speaking, it can be indicated that this model follows the same line of what we have already seen in headphones such as JBL Quantum ONE , although in this case the bet has been raised with support for RGB lighting (in addition to other advanced 3D audio technologies and cancellation active noise that explain why its final price ends up being much higher).

JBL Quantum 360X has official Xbox certification

JBL Quantum 360X invites users to focus on enjoying good sound quality while gaming, from recognizing the quietest footsteps in an environment to the power of explosions in an action title. For this, 40 mm amplifiers have been incorporated.

As seen in the images, the built-in boom mic adds to the good vibes when it comes to communication as well, supporting detachable directional voice focus with the addition of a silent mode for those late-night gaming moments you don’t want to wake up. to the whole family.

A very attractive detail is the addition of a game-chat sound adjustment dial, because due to the fact that separate audio cards have been integrated, it is possible to modify the values ​​separately between the volume you receive from the game in real time and the communications of the other players with whom you are sharing the game in order to balance the listening experience to your liking.

Unlike other superior proposals in its catalog, such as the case of the JBL Quantum 910X, which complements wireless connectivity with a 3.5 mm jack for use via cable, here it is possible to synchronize with your gaming device via Bluetooth 5.2 but also to use of a USB dongle with support for 2.4 GHz frequencies , promising an optimization of the input delay so that there are no differences compared to wired headphones.
