Afterglow AX.4 Communicator for Xbox 360
Not worth the hassle to try.
I just picked up a pair of these from my local store to replace my beloved headset that has died on me today. I saw a few reviews figuring it wouldn't be the best but I figured I would give them a shot. Giving it my small test run to see if its up to par with my last pair I went into a party with a friend. The hearing is decent, slightly more muffled then I'm use to, but the volume at which I have to speak is ridiculous. I practically have to speak in a yelling manner for the microphone to pick up my voice. If I placed it directly next to my mouth like most pairs it can pick up my voice at any volume I speak in, but its not close enough in its designed position to hear me. I would rather go with any other brand of microphones then these.
Waste of cash
I bought these at Walmart for $20 because my brother stole my good mic. I'm browsing around the electronic department, looking for a cheap mic and I come across these. They looked cool, and the box made them look like they were worth the buy...I was wrong...Yeah they're comfortable and I can hear my friends just fine but in order for anyone to hear me, I have to yell into the mic...It gets very frustrating when I'm telling my buddies to "Go left!" or "Watch out cuz there's a bunch of people in that building!" and they can't hear a single word I'm saying
Buy a regular mic
This mic was terrible. I had a regular headset for close to a year and it eventually just decided to stop working. I then went to a nearby store and found these for $17 and thought it was quite nice and it looked like a decent headset. I took it home and when i plugged them in, i found that i had to speak quite loudly in order for someone to hear me like i was listening. Its been less than two weeks and suddenly they just started crackling and i couldnt hear any of the people in my party. I had been told that they break easily but i didnt realize that this is what they mean. My recommendation, spend a few more bucks to buy the normal headset if you're strapped for cash, and if you are not, then buy a good headset from turtlebeach or triton.
The best product I have had for low money.
This is an awesome product, because now I can talk to my friends and here them it so great to have this product, and if you are trying to save $$ I would recommended this product.
Worth it if your trying to save $$
After reading the reviews a lot of people did not like it. So I decided to buy these. They are kinda comfortable but could of been better. This headset is perfect for people who have deep voices such as myself. But the LED lights drain your controller batteries so if you don't own a play an charge kit or charger base then I wouldn't recommend this for you. Again for those who have deep voices this would be for you but if not fond of buying batteries or dealing with controllers dying on you quickly then don't buy this.
I was blown away by the built quality of this headset. It's very lightweight and comfortable, can wear it for hours. Speaker quality is terrific and it seems everyone can hear me even when my TV is very loud. I bought it after my 1st party headset cable broke, i was going to buy another Microsoft one but went for this one purely for its looks at first. I sure am glad it sounds as good as it looks. Highly recommended.
DO NOT BUY !!!!!!!!
THIS THING IS TERRIBLE MY FRIENDS CANT HEAR ME. THE MIC IS ONLY AN INCH FROM THE EAR PIECE SO U HAVE TO YELL!!!! I HATE IT AND SO DO MY PARENTS DO NOT BUY THIS.
comfortable but not as good as i hoped for
i recently bought 2 sets of these there really comfortable i forget there even on my head at times mic works great and others can hear me great but hearing them sounds kinda like your talking in a halway its not very clear but it works the button on the ear speaker is what mutes it and un mutes it wish it had some sort of button else where but for the price it was good built pretty strong as i can tell and the ear foam surround is love no more ear hurt after gaming for a few ours...
Waste of your money.
the headset was missing a piece and i coulden't even plug in DO NOT BUY really big dissapointment. really it should be $0.00
I was looking for a cheap, cool mic to buy.. Sadly I bought this one. When I got it and used it the lights were cool and all. One problem. NOBODY CAN HEAR A WORD I SAY! Not only is the mic right next to my mouth but I have to say what i said twice for people to hear me. And i have to yell it. WILL BE BUYING A NEW MIC! Wasted my time and money.
