Call of Duty: Ghosts Shadow Limited Edition Amplified Gaming Headset
NO WIRES, MY BUTT!!!
On 12/6/13, i bought these for myself with my holiday discount. I read on the box and the info online that i wouldn't have to worry about any wires, that was a lie. Being powered by USB, i thought it was a wireless USB transmitter that transmit the sound from the console into the headset. After i took it out to look at it, to me it had too many wires. First it had the a wire running from headset, second you had to plug that in into the USB transmitter and finally you had the chat wire. I immediately packaged it back up and returned it. I have the earforce X32 headset and i love it way better than this one. I like the design, saving batteries is a good thing, but i rather buy batteries over and over again than using this headset.
Great! Except the cord.
I love every thing about it but the really long cord i believe could be shortened or just done away with and replaced by a WIFI dongle or something.
I thought it would be better.
I got this headset just so I wouldn't have to use that horrid one that comes with the PS4. I thought it would be pretty good since it had a $100 price tag but I was wrong. It does fit your head good and it has pretty great sound quality... But after wearing the headset for a 3+ hour gaming session, they really start to irritate your ears. The mouthpiece picks up every sound around you (dog barking, walking, etc.) and is a bit bulky. I feel like this headset is just a glorified set of PX21's that they put a CoD: Ghosts decal on. I regret buying these and I wish I would have waited and gotten a better headset.
Good But High Price
I, like many people, just bought a PS4. The mic you receive with the PS4 is quite poor. I wanted a decent headset but didn't want to pay the extra $60 for the PX4 headset. This headset is a great substitute, but I feel you pay a lot for the COD skin. Pros: Fit head well and have sound quality equal to that of the Turtlebeach X12 headset for Xbox 360. I have no problems hearing and chatting with other players online. Cons: With the earpiece material was better suited to block out surrounding sounds. Overall I would recommend this headset to a friend, but if you have more money, I suggest purchasing the PX4 Wireless Headset.
Universal X12's with a fancy design
This headset is decent, but you have to talk louder than ever before for the mic to catch your voice. I only play 1 console (xbox) so the universal feature is useless for me and compared to the x12's, it feels like i paid 40 bucks just for a COD Ghosts headset skin. I suggest get the x12's and save 40 bucks.
