    Great average headset.

    i bought this to compliment my Halo reach Xbox 360 console i bought last week release date. I decide to review of this headset, the bottom line its the same as regular average wireless headset you get as black or white version, nothing of a change besides the design for Halo reach theme. The wireless headset made with plastic casing and center black rings is piano black and shinny and stands out., The power coating silver finish on this headset is good quality its not shinny its made with same material and color of Halo reach console, The battery life is very good since its new, but older whites still works for me, it comes with black charging USB to charge. Its good headset for average mic and speaker for gaming. Not be compare with Turtle beach,Tritton or Astro .My suggestion when1st time getting one is fully charge it for good 2 hours to max out the charge on headset so next charge can set maximum capacity every time charge it . Headset a must for Halo fans otherwise get the black headset.

    Best Wireless Mic for Xbox 360

    Posted
    Suggestionable

    This Halo Edition Xbox 360 Wireless Mic is definetely worth the money compared to previous generation of wireless mic that microsoft sold. With this one, I been told by friends on xbox live that my voice sounds more clear and not chopped up when I used to own the White wireless mic. The Halo reach also has a nice design to it which makes my xbox 360 halo reach console. This Headset is not meant for just halo fans, I personally find this a good deal considering it does the job and plus it cost much less than those turtlebeach headset which to me seems like a bit big and annoying around your head. (*feels like wearing a baseball indoors. ) Halo wireless mic feels like you are wearing a bluetooth headset and excellent sound and volume control!!

    Decent

    I purchased this headset shortly after it came out and while it has decent battery life for a wireless headset (I'm generally on it for about 6 hours before i need to recharge it) the microphone on it could be so much better. I find sometimes i need to yell for it to pick up my voice while other times its sensitive as can be. Not sure if this is due to some setting in the xbox system or just my headset. other then the annoying microphone having trouble picking up my voice this headset was fine. It wasnt too heavy around the ears though the ear piece design wasnt really my favorite and did eventually begin to bother me but that wasnt till i was done gaming for the night so it wasnt a big issue. I guess if you want a wireless headset this would be the one to get but i myself will be getting one of the wired headsets with the boom mic's since the dog got a hold of it and chewed it to pieces so i cant really say too much on how long this thing will last before it wears out from natural use.

    Best 360 headset I have used!

    I don't have much to say besides I love this product! I have been searching for a good 360 headset to game with, and wasn't having much luck. They all were corded and the volume was never loud enough to clearly hear what your friends are saying. I also had issues with the mics not picking up me talking. After trying the headset that came with the 360, a purchased Microsoft headset, a Plantronics headset, and a Madcats headest, this one ended my quest! Great looking, loud, clear, and fits very comfortably on your ear. The price is a bit more than most look at when looking for a 360 headset but I assure you its worth it if you are looking for quality and clarity, as well as comfort, in a gaming headset. Combine it with a Halo:Reach themed controller or even the 360 bundle for a great looking setup!

    Works great, but uncomfortable

    I got the standard headset with the Halo Reach bundle and used that for a while, but then got tired of constantly trying to wiggle the cable so that it would transmit correctly. Finally I got this to replace that, tired of fighting the other one so much. It picks up my voice great and doesn't pick up surrounding sound that much, so it works very well for what it was designed to do. However, after a little while, the headset really starts to hurt my ear. It does come with a couple of different sizes, but I've tried changing them to no avail. The weight of the headset completely resting on my ear is just too much for it to not eventually start hurting. Maybe I just have big ears or something...

    I was a bit uneasy about buying this type of headset at first due to some reviews about comfort. I love this headset! Very, very easy to set up and control mid game. Easy battery level listed right on the mini-dashboard alongside your controllers battery level. Fast recharging. Great quality. It does begin to hurt slightly after prolonged (8+ hours) of use but around that time the battery would be running dry anyway so you'll get time to rest your ear while it's charging or just change ears. I highly recommend this product!

    Pretty Good Mic

    I got this when Halo Reach came out and so far it has been a good mic. You have to talk a little louder than normal for it to pick up the sound, so you cant be talking low. If you buy this and plan to use at night make sure your parents don't mind hearing you talk at night. Other than that the mic has good battery life and looks great!

    Needs shorter recharge time

    Overall very happy with this headset: 1.) Its very lightweight so it doesnt bother your ear. 2.) Doesn't come across my face, so I can eat while playing without getting food on it. 3.) Battery lasts a long time 4.) d One complaint I do have is the battery takes a long time to recharge the manual even says it can take up to 6 HOURS to fully recharge.

    Halo Reach Headset rocks. I absolutely love the design and the feel. The most comfortable headset I have ever worn. It also picks up sound very well. Works way better than a standard headset. Very hard to locate but persistence is the key.

    I had trouble

    I had frequent disconnects from my unit and I was told that my voice was very crackled on the other end. I assume it was from interference because I have a lot of 2.4 Ghz electronics in my home. It is too bad I was really looking forward to using a wireless headset.

    i'll never go back to a wired headset. it is light, easy to use, doesn't tether you to your controller.

    Not working sometimes. Annoying! Although, its lighweight, it is useless because of garbled sound.
