The X-Tatic AIR is a wireless gaming headset, which was developed for the Xbox® 360 and PS3, but is also compatible with PC, Wii as well as TV sets and other sound sources with RCA audio outputs. The digital 2.4 GHz transmission technology of the X-Tatic AIR ensures clear voice and gaming sound within a radius of up to ten meters from the console or rather the transmitter unit*, while the enclosed NiMH batteries support gaming sessions of up to ten hours**.
The X-Tatic AIR adjusts perfectly to the shape of your head
with its adjustable, padded headband, soft ear cushions and
individually adjustable ear cups. It guarantees a comfortable fit even
during all night gaming sessions.
Two separate analog audio inputs allow it to be simultaneously
connected to the console and attached to a TV or other audio source.
Through the transmitter either audio input can be selected. Connecting
the AIR is quick and easy with little effort. Also, the X-Tatic AIR can
easily be connected via USB to a PC.
Through the noise-canceling microphone background noises are
effectively minimized, resulting in voice commands being clearly and
precisely understood. The microphone can be detached from the headset,
so that it is not in the way when in use with a music player or TV. If
needed, the microphone can be muted through a corresponding button on
the headset; a built-in LED on the microphone indicates when the mute
function has been activated. Chat and game volume can be regulated
separately to create a perfect sound balance and ensure clear
communication with other players at all times.
If after three minutes no adjacent sound is detected the
Auto-Sleep function activates the Standby mode, which ensures that
power consumption is reduced to a minimum. The practical headset
suspension at the base of the transmitter allows secure storage of the
headset when not in use. Depending on spatial conditions the hanger can
also be removed.
Ambient noises are effectively isolated through the closed,
ear encompassing headset design. At the same time it creates an
enclosed area around the ears allowing the sound dimension of the 40 mm
drives to fully unfold. Three preconfigured equalizer modes offer
appropriate sound settings for use in different sound settings***.
The X-Tatic AIR was specifically tailored to the needs of
gamers: For particularly extensive gaming sessions, an extra set of AAA
batteries for the headset can be charged battery-charging station of
the transmitter while in use. Thus, after a brief battery change over,
another ten hours of additional gaming can commence. This charging unit
also offers the possibility to charge AA batteries since they are
needed in the Xbox® Gamepad. Corresponding AA and AAA batteries are
already included within packaging of the headset. A warning signal
indicates the low battery level while in game mode, allowing enough
time for a change.
The transmitter unit of the AIR also offers a USB charging
port. Since USB ports on the PS3 are rare, a corresponding USB charging
port is integrated into the base: Here, the Gamepad can be easily
charged. Of course, the charging port is also suitable for other
compatible devices (i.e. smartphone, MP3 players, etc.). Both the
battery and the Gamepad charging function are available even if the
transmitter unit is in standby mode.
The headset controls are easily accessible on the headphones.
This ensures that the gameplay is not interrupted for long periods of
time while searching for the right buttons.
