    Great: Almost perfect

    Posted
    MrMcSprinkles

    I have been a hardcore Halo player online since Xbox Live came out. I have had this product since it came out, and it works perfectly. You are not restricted by any of those anoying wires anymore either. One of my good friends was also quite impressed with this new product, so he decided to get one because he was tired from trying to keep that wimpy headset (the one you get eith your Xbox system) on his head. Now we can hear each other, the game, and anyone else. You can hear every footstep, and every shot with the wireless headset. I highly recommend this product. Some people have had some issues losing it, or with it not charging. IT IS ONLY NOT CHARGEABLE WHEN IT IS COMPLETELY, 100% OUT OF BATTERYPOWER. Otherwise, after every "gaming session," just put it right back on the charger. As for losing it, you must be pretty unorganized, or not play Xbox Live at all. As for buying the product, I do recommed buying the extra warranty on it, in case it does break, then you can just go back to the store, and get a new one, or a different one maybe. I highly recommed this product to anyone who is weighed down by wires enough to go wireless.

    Decent Headset

    Posted

    This is a great overall headset for the xbox 360 console, there are a few down sides, but everything has a negative point, right? The headset gives crystal clear output and input results, it's so light that you even forget you're wearing it... the downside though is the actual battery life, it lasts for appr. 5-6 hours or so, but as we all know, if you're playing Halo 3 you'll be playing for more than that... along with that the charging cable is short so it's not like the plug-and-play for the 360 controllers where you can play while it's charging. Perhaps if they came up with a cable you could attach to the controller and charge it at the same time it'd be the perfect headset. On the plus side, it costs the same (at least at the moment) as the standard version, so getting a great headset with Halo 3 decals to flaunt to your friends as you tear through them and laugh at their futile attempts is, to me, a great investment... though I do advise you to keep it out of the reach of puppies, as I just recently found out :(

    I recommend this headset to anyone, not just Halo fans but anyone that needs a headset for the Xbox 360. This Wireless headset has extremely good sound quality and when speaking gives out great quality voice to others listening to you. It is wireless and can go about 20 - 25 feet away from the console without bringing the controller with you. Also adjustable sound volume, great rechargeable battery life (If you charge it for 6 hours before your first use as the manual says), and a mute function. The only real downfall to this is the mute. When you are on mute the headset beeps in your ear once every 20 - 30 seconds. I suppose this is to let you know you are on mute. Also, in order to mute and unmute yourself you have to tap the power button on the outside of the headset (the orange button). This means taking our hand off the controller for a couple seconds. Again, a great buy!

    Worthwhile purchase

    I've had this headset for about a month now, and it's worked very well for me. I know the earlier headsets used a wall AC charger, so I was pleasantly surprised by the usb cable that came with mine. The earpiece is extremely comfortable for multi-hour online sessions, and sound quality is exceptional. My only complaint is that when I used the wireless headset and my brother used the wired one (set up on separate controllers), I had intermittent ability to hear and talk to my friends, even though the wireless headset was set up for the first player controller. That was the only time I've had any problem with the product, and it's not something I plan on doing a lot anyway. Highly recommended.

    Great product, but you better get a warranty.

    This product is FANTASTIC in every way except that it has known issues that cause most units to fail or stop working after a few months of normal use. I would recommend buying this, however GET THE WARRANTY FROM BEST BUY or you'll end up like me with a headset that won't turn on or charge after only 2 months. Just do a few Google searches and you'll quickly see there are a significant amount of issues with this headset. Trust me, you DO NOT want to deal with Xbox or Microsoft Support...they'll drive you mad. It is well worth buying the warranty at Best Buy and doing a simple exchange. Of all the headsets, this is the best...it's just a shame there are some problems you'll have to deal with like me. That's my 2 cents.

    Very Nice Headset

    I bought this headset due to the fact that the color was as close as I could get to match my black Elite system. I never had any other wireless headset so I can only speak for this one but so far (having it for 4 months now) I have not had one issue with it. It has always stayed connected and gives awesome audio quality. I just wish I would have bought two due to not being able to charge it while talking on it. Oh well needs to charge sometime. The good thing about this thing though is it WILL charge while the system is powered off. So I can just plug it in while I sleep and when I wake up PRESTO its charged. The only thing I wish is that Microsoft would have released a BLACK headset to match their system.

    Great headset

    This is a must buy for any xbox live user. This headset is much better than the wired one for more reasons than just getting rid of the cord. The sound qaulity seems to have improved slightly and the mic pick up of your own voice is alot better. Also the wired headsets seem alittle flimsy and break fairly easily, (atleast for me and my friends they did, usually the foam falling off or plastic headset breaking) especially if you have little brothers and pets that can get ahold of them. The wireless headset feels and is very strong and durable and syncs up with the xbox very quickly and with ease.

    Amazing headset

    This headset is great for people like me who can't seem to keep their wired headsets in working order. I broke 2 headsets in my controllers and I got tired of breaking them so I went out and picked up one of these. I just got into Halo about a week before Halo 3 came out and if you like Halo, this headset is for you. Sometimes it connects to controller number two when i only have one controller turned on but it's not really that big of a deal. My friends hear me clearly and vice versa. Definitely recommended.

    Cooridinate it up

    The headset looks nice, the only copper on it being the power button, instead of the volume buttons or the microphone piece being copper, which would be way too flashy and could have reminded you of your grandma's earrings...woah. The Halo 3 logo could have been done up a little different-i.e. spell out "Halo 3" instead of the circled 3, but its low-key and still represents. Smooth looking earpiece though if you've got the Special Edition console. BOOYA!

    The battery is one of the issues that I have with the headset itself. The one thing that I recommend is that if you wear glasses do not get it. It never seems to stay on if you wear glasses. Every now and than you sound really distant from the microphone. But I never seem to have signal issues (that's the great thing). Maybe Xbox will make a next-gen headset that has in ear and a different ear groove.

    This is a great product to buy if you are looking for a wireless microphone for the 360 or if you're a halo fan. It sounds alot better then the standard wired microphone that comes with the pro console and it has a long battery life. The first charge takes a while but once thats done its great. A must buy for halo fans or people needing a replacement for a broken microphone.

    I have 2 kids who have destroyed numerous wired-headsets for the xbox 360. We bought the wireless, and it is much more durable and reliable than the wired ones. In the end, I think I have saved money because I don't have to keep replacing broken headsets. Downside, the charge lasts for a few hours, you have to remember to recharge.

    HI I just got my halo3 headset and it is sick. It sounds better then my wired one and my friends on Xbox live say the can here a lot better now. It looks sweet and I can go about 20 to 25 feet away from my Xbox and still talk and I don't have to bring the controller with me. You can’t go wrong on this one.

    Wow. If you are a true Halo junkie like I am, you need one of these wireless headsets. There are not going to be alot made, so trying to get your hands on one is going to be harder then trying to land a super hot supermodel for your girlfriend or boyfriend. Hurry and get one for yourslef today before they all run out.

    Good product. I like it because it matches my Halo 3 Xbox 360 perfectly and it is wireless. After a while wearing it, (20 mins) it does get a little bit uncomfortable. Also, it does have a low battery life and you have to charge it but it comes with a charging wire like a cell phone charger.

    Not Very Good

    OGHowie

    This headset needs to be improved because you must talk very loud for others to hear you. I returned my first one for this reason but I had the same problem with my 2nd wireless headset. Charging also takes very long (6 hrs) and only gives you 8 hrs of talk time. I'd go with a wired headset over this one.

    I love this headset, i just got one for christmas. It is very comfortable, has fairly good audio clarity, and is very nicely designed. The wireless range is fair, although you will find yourself trying to stay close to the 360. (although its better than being wired to it...)

    This might seem like it cost a lot. but it is worth it and the communicators are more durable than the standard sets. This communicator is also very fitting and doesn't hurt with a slight spot that makes it so you don't have to custimize it much for your liking.
