The new Lioncast LX30 offers an affordable entry into the world of gaming headsets for around 50 euros. Whether the quality and sound of the 7.1 surround headset with RGB lighting are convincing in addition to the price, we took a closer look and listened to in the following test.
The Lioncast LX30’s auricles are closed to prevent annoying background noise from entering the user’s ear. At the same time other people in the room cannot hear what is happening in the game or what music the headset is playing because of the good isolation.
The company Lioncast, which according to its own statement has the goal of producing the best input devices and headsets for players, uses neodymium magnets with a diameter of 50 millimeters in the LX30. The impedance is 32 ohms.
According to Lioncast, the entire human audible frequency range from 20 Hz to 20 KHz is reproduced by the headset.

Design and Workmanship
The workmanship of the headset works well considering the price. The auricles and the temple are made of plastic, which has a high-quality effect. Metal was probably not used for cost reasons. The padding of the temple and the ear cups made of imitation leather also look solid. So far no wear could be noticed here yet.
The microphone on the left side is on an arm that can be removed if necessary. Due to the extremely high flexibility, problems with the longevity may have to be feared here, which could manifest themselves in loose contacts. However, this is only an assumption that was not confirmed in the test and can only be verified after a long time.
Also the sheathing of the cable leaves no reason for complaint. It is thick enough to prevent cable breakage without restricting movement. The remote control on the cable also makes a good impression.
Apart from the silver logo, this can otherwise only be individualised using the black design and the RGB lighting, which offers many adjustment options.
