To answer the question, no, this is a PC only headset, and a pretty good one to boot. The Roccat ELO 7.1 Air appears to hit a crowd-pleasing sweet spot in the world of gaming headsets. Not only can you experience freedom from cumbersome wires, but you can now do so with the audio quality you get with wired hardware, and at an affordable price to boot coming in around $99.99 / £89.99 / AU$199.99. 

A Bluetooth headset losing the wire and connecting via a USB connection. The Roccat ELO Air’s battery life is good, not amazing but good enough for a few sessions ,up to 24 hours of battery life but we haven’t tested it for that long to see if this true. It sits well on your head and features a detachable mic, so you can wear it out the house without looking a d*ck.

RGB lighting

The Roccat ELO 7.1 Air has RGB lighting on the side of the headset if you like that thing. As most RGB light effects is control with the software and you can sync it with your other Roccat products if you care to do so. The software also features some fun features like ability to change your voice to a monster, male or female, ideal for trolling your team mates.

No need to mess around with adjusting the size of the headset as it comes with a self-adjusting suspension strap. The metal frame is sturdy but does creak a little with rapid head movement, but this is a budget wiresless headset. Leatherette covered memory foam on the cans with are comfortable even on long sessions.
