Warhead 7.1 Wireless Surround Headset
best wireless headset out there period sound is awesome !!! chat works great altough you need to turn down chat on the console or you will blow your head off and hit will hum a little, tight fit around ears could have better padding on top of head, of course there exspensive but there worth it if you want true wireless astro a50 were ok but the mic was a probelm sound was ok but these trittons are way better two batteries so you never skip a beat!!!
Excellent Acoustic's,weight and battery life
I requested this headset for Christmas and got them how cool is that. But the better thing is the functionality of these phones. I spend a lot of 10 hour days gaming with my sister and in use is this headset. We have never been cut short with battery life. Weight and sound is of equal importance to me. This headset will please you in both of these areas.
Done with MadCatz
I originally purchased the halo 4 version of this, but the mic did not work. I didn't think it was a big deal and I sent them to madcatz to be repaired. After waiting for several weeks I was emailed that they no longer carry the halo 4 version and that I was going to receive these instead. Not a big deal but when I finally got them and hooked them back up I had the same exact issue. Madcatz has been a pain to deal with. Other than that the sound quality isn't bad so I give it a 3
Better than Turtle Beach
So i've had Turtle Beach x12 headsets, 2 of them. Both of which had good sound and such, but the wires were a hastle. I looked into Tritton headsets because all of my friends seemed to enjoy them much more than Turtle Beach. I found out these were coming out, but were the same price as Astro a40's... With further research these are a better buy because A.) I'm not a commentator, and B.) these are wireless. One more thing that I should tell you, the buyer, My good friend just bought Turtle Beach px3's and says there just as good as mine, but based on my research Tritton's blow them out of the water. This is an amazing headset. However with all good things comes a few flaws. Very minor flaws consiting of the sound. When you first use the headset you need to let it break in, give it time. It sounds a little staticy but that's just because it;s a brand new, straight from the factory product. The only other flaw is if you don't adjust it from time-to-time, it hurts your head a bit, but maybe that's just me. Regardless I love this headset.
Best Headset so far
I have had a couple different Turtle Beach headsets and also the Tritton AX Pro wired set. Most recently I purchased the Turtle Beach Black Ops Tango headsets and after having them a couple weeks I returned them they sound very tinny. Then I got these and they are awesome, it comes with two rechargeable batteries(one in the headset and one in the base charging) so you always have a fresh battery. One of the coolest things is for chat the base syncs with your Xbox, so there is no puck or wire going from your headset to your controller. These are a truly wireless system.
Great headset, but...
I've been using the headset for the past two days and my take on them are as follows: ... Best battery life/battery system out there. Hot swappable batteries is a must for any $300 headset in my opinion. Decent sound, sometimes a little 'tinny' due to the lack of great bass. The Equalizer is garbage, but overall the audio is decent. The mic picks up EVERYTHING... and from what I have found there is no way to adjust it's sensitivity. Comfort is the same as all other Trittons, basically they are just decent in this category. Overall my only real complaint is the lack of bass, but I didn't buy these things to listen to music anyway. Solid headset, I would recommend to a friend.
i just got these in the mail today and all i can say is wow!! when i got them all set up which only took about 5 to 10 minutes i was shocked by the speakers in them. they where so clear and listening to the tv compared to the headset you can really tell the difference. the sounds in the game just are so much clearer and make the gaming experience much more fun. The Pros: great construction- they are built very well, speaker clarity is astonishing, easy set up and play design, great battery life, and over all just an awsome headset. The CONS: a bit pricy i would have to say these should sell more for around 240 to 250 not 300, and also it is a little bulky so if you game for like 4 hours or more these will start to weigh down on you and my ears started to hurt from the amount tension but the padding does help a lot. over all i am glad i made this my new gaming headset. LOVE THEM AND ANYONE WHO WANTS TO GET A PAIR I HIGHLY RECOMEND THEM AWSOME JOB ON THE TRITTON WARHEAD 7.1. thank you gamestop and thank you very much Tritton

Tritton Warhead Vs. Astro A50
After 3 days of casual gaming my A50's took a digger! They stopped working altogether & are a Paperweight! Not only the did Astro A50 Headset fail the Dolby button on the Mix-Amp box failed as well.
Talk about Bad! The A50’s headset couldn’t even out perform my Turtle Beach "Earforce X41's" cause after having issues with the A50's, I plugged my turtle Beach Headset back in & they WORK!
Oh & another Nail in the Coffin for the A50's is this: When I go on the Asto Gaming Website to get a Phone # to call them about the problem's I am having with the A50's, they have me fill out a form & say they will get back to me within 24 hrs. I can't even talk to anyone at Astro about my problems with their product, I have to fill out a form & wait (that is terrible Customer Service)!
I am done with Astro, going back to my Turtle Beach & may look at the new Tritton Warheads coming out on August 6th.
Finally a headset to look forward to.
Let me start by saying how much I hate turtlebeach headsets. I've owned 3 and have had nothing but problems from them. The customer service sucks (when you finally manage to talk to a live person) mostly they seem to take a if we ignore them they'll stop bugging us stance. To finally have a headset that doesn't need a cord running to the controller is a big plus. I have these preorded and can't wait to hook them up to my xbox.sd
