Considering the amount of money in gaming, it can only be a good thing for when I’m long gone.

I don’t know a single gamer that has any headset above 300€

Most have in the 80-150€ range

But if there is a market...

Agree, but with some clever marketing to the eSports/Gamer YouTube big shots, there might be a mild halo effect.

Not a space i know that well, but not a ridiculous move by B&O.

I have the winner, and 50% of my Gamer friends have this. There is a great market for this.

And also this is a winner but it is not good compared to my H6, but compared to the price it is understandable as the Steelseries is cheaper.

So I am looking forward to be able to buy a proper gaming headset, even if it would be way over 300€ which it sure will be.

Also when it is B&O you would properly use it for other then gaming, which people dont tend to do now.

If they make it multi purpose they’re onto a winner. Bose do an ANR headset that has a mic boom port on it. You can add an aviation boom and appropriate leads and hey presto your £300 headset can now be used on aircraft. I have a David Clarke aviation headset and they cost £900!

So everyone here has a Bose headset for work and pleasure. And when they want a boom box

, which brand do you think they’ll naturally home in on? Hopefully the same thing could happen for B&O.

This is great news!

Bear in mind an Xbox doesn't have bluetooth for it's wireless audio connection to the console, it uses a proprietry wireless audio technology to eliminate lag which is inherant with bluetooth. 

This could impact price...
