NACON, a leader in premium gaming accessories and parent of the RIG audio brand, proudly unveils the RIG 900 MAX HX. Licensed for Xbox, the 900 MAX marks a pinnacle in wireless game audio, merging new-to-market Dolby Personalized Audio, dual wireless connectivity with Bluetooth audio, and a seamless charging base station for the definitive gaming experience.

The 900 MAX is the first gaming headset to feature a customized 3D audio experience with Dolby Atmos Headphone Personalization.  Conventional headphone surround experiences are designed using generic head and body types without considering the natural diversity of the human body.  Dolby Atmos Personalized Audio uses your phone and the Dolby Personalization App to build a tailored acoustic map from a detailed analysis of your ears, head and shoulders, creating an exceptional immersive experience.

“Innovation is born from understanding the demands of gamers,” said NACON Head of Development for RIG, Jack Reynolds.  “The 900 MAX embodies our commitment to crafting a definitive gaming headset that delivers exceptional wireless performance across all their devices and tailors the audio experience to each player.”

Boasting phenomenal connectivity with low-latency 2.4GHz wireless and Bluetooth 5.1, the 900 MAX HX lets you connect wirelessly to all your favorite gaming devices, including Xbox, PlayStation, Nintendo Switch, PC and Mobile.


Command your audio with the versatility of dual-mode wireless on the 900 MAX HX. Low-latency 2.4GHz connection via USB wireless adapter gives you a competitive edge, while Bluetooth 5.1 allows you to game on the go with platforms like Nintendo Switch—cycle between Game, Bluetooth, or Dual-Mode, ensuring no interruptions when you are in the zone.


Customize your Dolby Atmos 3D audio experience with the revolutionary Dolby Personalization app. Scanning the shape of your head, ears, and shoulders, the app creates a unique acoustic map to produce a more accurate Dolby Atmos experience tailored just for you. Experience a rich 3D soundscape that provides depth and dimension, allowing you to detect every sound before your opponents.

Engineered with reinforced steel, the 900 MAX HX showcases a premium headband, ensuring durability even during intense gaming sessions. Weighing in at just 295 grams (10.5 ounces), this ultralightweight headset boasts SNAP-FIT earcups with breathable dual fabric and a headband sling, providing unmatched comfort for all-day gaming.


Never run out of battery mid-game with 50-hour battery life on a 2.4GHz connection and up to 60 hours using Bluetooth. Just dock the headset and recharge via the base station, ready for your next session.


Powered by high-sensitivity 40mm audio drivers with enhanced bass and a precisely tuned acoustic chamber, the 900 MAX HX is designed to produce accurate audio without fatigue. Experience the advantage and immersion of ultimate game audio.


Bluetooth connectivity unlocks access to the 900 MAX Navigator app on iOS and Android devices.  Pairing your headset with a mobile device unlocks advanced customization to personalize your audio experience further. Select pre-set equaliser options for different game genres and music, or completely customize them yourself, adjust mic sensitivity or monitoring levels, and test headset functionality. (Navigator App will be available as the 900 MAX reaches retail shelves in mid-September).


Using a directional microphone paired with noise rejection technology, the 900 MAX HX provides crystal clear voice pickup in all gaming environments. Flip-to-mute functionality instantly mutes your voice without needing to interrupt your game.
