Microsoft has announced a partnership with the high-end headphone company Bang & Olufsen for a new “designed-for-Xbox” headset that carries a premium price tag. The Bang & Olufsen Beoplay Portal wireless headphone set is the first product in the new “Designed for Xbox Limited Series” program and costs as much as the Xbox Series X: $500 USD.
The headphones are available in Black Anthracite, Grey Mist, and Navy Brass. The black pair released today, March 30, while the Grey Mist and Navy Brass are up for preorder.
The headphones will work with any audio input, but they also have a range of gaming-specific features. The headphones let you customize the game/chat audio balance, and you can also mute and change the volume directly on the headphones or through the Bang & Olufsen app.
