    Why would you release a new headset with BT 4.2 not 5.1 ?

    How does it connect to the consoles?

    From what I understand the consoles don't have Bluetooth.

    I couldn't imagine why not either. Wouldn't 5.1 be backwards compatible with the rest before it right??

    Bluetooth is the secondary wireless connection so I guess they didn't think it was important and probably got a good offer on 4.2 chips.

    WiFi. There's a good chance it'll work on PC with the wireless adapter.

    Yes it's backwards compatible. It's probably a cost thing. 4.2 in bulk from some supplier getting rid.

    Wonder if the low latency of these through the Xbox also applies to Xbox One and PC. Interesting headset to say the least, and you have to imagine it's decent after their experience with the Surface headphones.
