Design and workmanship
The LS15P is completely finished in matte black. There is a black logo on a dark gray background on both earcups, and glossy black LucidSound lettering on the temple. The headset is slightly textured in parts, but this is only noticeable from close up. Visually, the LS15P is simple and unobtrusive, which has its advantages.
LucidSound deviates from the standard when it comes to the controls. On the left side there is the power on/off switch, the power LED, the micro USB port for charging, the 3.5 mm connector for wired use and the connector for the microphone. On the right side, there is only the EQ switch.
Of course, the other usual controls are not missing. To make the controls easier to use, LucidSound has moved them to the outer sides of the ear cups. If you press the logo on the left, you mute the sound and press it again to turn it up. The ring around the logo can be rotated to adjust the volume. Similarly, you can mute the microphone and adjust the chat volume on the right. After some time to get used to it, we liked this solution very much. Furthermore, each keystroke is confirmed by a voice.
The headset is completely made of plastic and makes an overall stable impression. Nevertheless, we would have liked the use of some metal, especially on the ear cup holders. The ear pads of the LS15P are made of artificial leather and there is also padding on the underside of the earpiece. The padding feels very comfortable, and we also like the firmness very much.
The microphone is also completely black, can be bent well but not too easily and remains reliably in position. Our only criticism regarding the design is actually the USB wireless stick. With a length of almost 6cm, which protrudes from the USB port, it seems huge for today’s times. Especially when used on a notebook, the size was always annoying, as we had to remove the stick every time we stowed it away.
The LucidSound headset also left a very good impression when it came to wearing comfort. The length of the headband is adjustable in 7 steps and the attachment of the ear cups is also very flexible. These are sufficiently large and shield ambient noise well. Furthermore, they can be rotated by 90°, which allows the headset to be stored in a space-saving manner.
The already mentioned synthetic leather pads also proved to be very good in the test. They are not too soft, but also not too firm. The weight turns out to be very low at 283 grams including the microphone, also thanks to the plastic. The headset fits very well and is still comfortable after several hours.
