With the LX55 USB RGB Gaming Headset, Lioncast presents its latest headphone-microphone combination. As the successor to the LX50 in the USB version, it offers not only RGB lighting, but also 7.1 surround sound. In the version only with jack plug both extras are missing. Whether the USB headset tested here can also convince, you can find out here in the test.
Design and Workmanship
At first sight the LX55 looks simple and shows, except for the Lioncast logos, no bells and whistles. The entire headset is black, only the inside of the auricle is red and bears the inscription Lioncast. From the padded headband to the large oval earcups, which nestle elegantly into the holding straps, everything creates a harmonious picture. The whole thing is rounded off by RGB LED illumination of the logos and a ring around the auricle.
The aluminium headband of the headphones makes the whole construction very stable without losing the necessary flexibility. In addition, the band has a foam padding at the top, which is stylishly bordered by a seam. So the gaming headset adapts effortlessly to any head. It is a pity that the ear cups cannot be folded or turned for transport. All in all, the design of the Lioncast LX55 headset is more than successful. With its clear and simple lines it looks really good.
As the design suggests, the workmanship is excellent. The headset feels high quality. Despite its flexibility, it is still stable and robust to withstand the influences of a heated gaming session. Only the inline remote control looks a bit cheap and does not quite fit into the overall concept.
