    This has been answered many times, both versions work with the PC.

    If you checked the product page it says 16 hours on a charge and charging time is 4 hours.

    A metal headband looks cheaper than a plastic headband? I'm willing to bet the audio quality will be considerably better as well. If we are judging on looks then Bose headphones should be like $80.

    I wish there was a wired version. Hopefully they make one in the future. I'm not a fan of wireless headphones.

    Yes they do. Some restrictions apply as they are primarily designed for the consoles, but they do work on PC.

    Will the Xbox One version require the optical and/or USB connection? Or will the base station (or headset) connect wirelessly to the Xbox using Microsoft's proprietary "Xbox Wireless" protocol?

    No Dolby Atmos? The upcoming wireless Plantronics with a lesser 40mm driver has Atmos and a better battery life at a hundred less MSRP than this (at $150). I got razer for nearly everything else so I would like to keep it consistent. I'm surprised that this isn't Atmos compatible. I sure hope that it's that much more comfortable...

    Just to clarify, Plantronics is including a code to unlock Dolby Atmos decoding on the Xbox One and PC (which anyone can buy for $15 at the moment) -- but it doesn't look like their actual hardware includes Dolby decoding. Razer's audio hub/base station *does* have hardware-based Dolby decoding though, which means you get a legitimate surround sound effect (via Dolby Headphone processing) with other Dolby-encoded optical sources too, like PS4 games, movies, etc. I agree though, a $100 premium is steep assuming all other aspects are equal.

    My only concern is... No Chroma?

    i feel the same .. 250 dollar console only headset that , according to the last post of a razer stuff .. will have tradeoffs when using on a pc .. that does not have chroma on that price range ??

    But are you implying that Razer hub hardware based Dolby 7.1 decoding on a single 50mm driver is better than Xbox One S/X Dolby Atmos decoding on a single 40mm driver at $100 less? The Xbox One S/X probably has more than enough processing power to decode Dolby Atmos with very minimal frame lose. The only positive spin I could give to the Razer thresher is the supposedly superior comfort and the larger driver (despite its inferior decoding tech).

    No, I'm just pointing out the limitations of the Plantronics RIG 800LX in regards to getting properly processed surround sound from *any* source that outputs Dolby 5.1/7.1 over optical. If someone is just using the Xbox One and/or PC, then headsets like the Plantronics will work just fine -- because they rely on the source to do the processing. However, if someone wants to use a headset like the Plantronics with a PS3, PS4, streaming device with optical output, etc. they won't be able to get surround sound since neither the source nor the headset is capable of doing the processing. For some people that's important (like me obviously); for others not so much.

    The PS4 does support Dolby surround sound and it is capable of doing the processing. link1, link2
