Nacon and RIG are back with another high-quality gaming headset option. Best of all, the Rig 600 Pro HX Wireless Headset is universally compatible with PC, PlayStation, Xbox, and Nintendo Switch thanks to a universal wireless adapter!
Thanks to the Rig 600 Pro HX Wireless Headset, you do not need to have multiple headsets for multiple consoles. That is honestly the best selling point of these wireless headphones as you’ll save money and de-clutter your gaming room.
Normally, Xbox has proprietary headphones thanks to the Xbox Wireless standard, so that means that you need to look for Designed for Xbox labels or otherwise find workarounds like Bluetooth dongles.
The Rig 600 Pro HX Wireless Headset features both Bluetooth 5.1 and a universal low-latency 2.4GHz wireless USB-C adapter that you can plug into everything from Xbox to PC. Plus, Bluetooth 5.1 is perfect for connecting to your smartphone or tablet.
The Rig 600 Pro HX Wireless Headset features around-ear headphones. The black headset should fit snugly on most heads, and the earcups are comfortable around the ears. Like the Rig 500 Pro HX Gen 2, it features a high-quality build for the price.
Another nice feature is the discreet chat-optimized omnidirectional microphone. If you only want to use the headset to listen, you can flip the mic into the earcup and the flip-to-mute functionality will do the rest of the work. This is also great for storage and to avoid damage to the microphone.
In addition to being officially licensed for Xbox, the Rig 600 Pro HX includes Dolby Atmos for Headphones. Gamers can experience three-dimensional audio when they connect the USB-C wireless adapter to an Xbox console or PC.
The main downside is that the charging cable is slightly shorter than two feet long, so you can’t realistically charge while you’re using the headset. The battery life is decent for the price, but you may need to recharge it more than you would like if you regularly play long sessions of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II.
According to Nacon, the Rig 600 Pro HX has an 18-hour battery life on a 2.4GHz connection and up to 24 hours using Bluetooth. In other words, a fully charged battery should definitely last you at least one day, if not several days.
Another minor gripe is that you have to download a separate Dolby Access App to use Dolby Atmos and 3D audio. This is not Nacon’s fault though, so it’s not really fair to ding them for that.
All in all, the Rig 600 Pro HX is a good headset at a fair price that even comes with a free Dolby Atmos subscription. You can find it at Walmart.
