B&O gave no additional details regarding pricing and availability of its new Xbox audio products. However, one Twitter user pointed out that the image in B&O's post resembled its $85,000 Beolab 90 speaker system (opens in new tab).
That said, it's possible that B&O could release a Series X specific speaker or perhaps gaming headsets that mirror its design. Microsoft's next-gen Xbox Series X console is slated for a Holiday 2020 release date.
