While you have the Lioncast LX55 on, you immediately notice the high wearing comfort. With a weight of around 325 grams, it is not one of the lightweights, but it is not too heavy either. In the test it snuggled gently around the head without building up too much pressure. Thus one can carry it also over longer time without problems.
Thanks to the light foam padding, even spectacle wearers can use the headset for longer game sessions without unpleasant pain. In the test, even after several hours of use, there was no excessive heat development under the earcups, so the ears did not really sweat. The wearing comfort is therefore more than solid and therefore offers a high wearing comfort, even if the somewhat oversized inline remote control is sometimes annoying.
Linocast wants to convince with the USB version of the LX55 with 7.1 surround sound. Of course you shouldn’t expect miracles. But actually in the test you could better judge the position of noises and thus also opponents in games like Battlefield V or Overwatch. This significantly enhanced the gaming experience. The sound benefits in particular from the 53 millimetre drivers, which clearly reproduce a wide frequency spectrum. Whether highs or lows, individual sounds are not blurred and are clearly distinguishable from each other.
The headset is connected to a PC via USB on the inline remote control. It can also be connected to a console, smartphone or tablet via a jack plug, provided, of course, that a corresponding socket is available. Here you can also adjust the volume of the earphones and mute the microphone. You can also switch off the RGB lighting at the touch of a button. This, as well as the 7.1 surround sound function, can unfortunately no longer be used if the headset is only connected via the jack plug.
