Last fall, LucidSound, which was founded in 2016 and specializes in headsets, recently became part of PowerA, introduced the LS15, a wireless headset for the latest console generation.
The LS15 appeared in two versions. As LS15P for the Playstation 5, Playstation 4 and the PC and as LS15X for the Xbox Series X|S and Xbox One. Both versions can also be used wired, via 3.5 mm cable, with other devices such as smartphones and tablets.
We have the LS15P for our test and tested it extensively on the PC for you.

Scope of delivery
The headset comes together with the plug-in boom microphone, a micro USB charging cable, the USB wireless stick, a quick start guide and a sticker in a simple cardboard box. If you’re expecting high-quality packaging, a case, or additional accessories, you’ll be disappointed here. LucidSound focuses on the essentials. Considering a price of ~€100, this is not too tragic. However, at least a 3.5 mm cable could have been included, since they advertise wireless use on PS5, PS4 and PC, and it is absolutely necessary for other devices, such as smartphones and tablets.
