Warhead 7.1 Wireless Surround Headset
the best headset for xbox you can ever have!
I had this headset for 2 days and it's been fanomal for me literly iv been using I been using it im a person who goes in to detail and specs about head I highly recommend this for a games.!
Wow what a difference!
I am an inexperienced online game player and play MOHW. This headset makes a huge difference in K/D ratio.
I have a 3 dimensional understanding of where people are around me with these headphones.
The wireless chat is awesome and very clear to coordinate with your fire team buddy.
No strange static like with my Turtle Beach X42's.
Woudl be a great headset IF...
This headset would be great if:
-It wasn't $300 (you can get a much superior product for $300)
-It didnt break every two to three weeks (Had a terrible buzzing noise the first time, and the right ear cup completely blew apart on the 2nd and 3rd headsets I received)
-The headset didnt have a piano gloss finish (While this makes the headset look really slick, it sumdges really easily, and scratches even when using a microfiber cloth to clear the smudges, etc)
That being said, the Warhead 7.1 would be a great headset minus everything before mentioned. The sound is great (tho I didnt find much difference between this unit and the AX 720's I owned a while back). The comfort of this headset is 3 out of 5 for me because the top headband is made out of a rubber like material instead of memory foam like many other similar headsets. Setup is a flash as all you need to do is plug it in, pair with your 360 and you're off and running. Overall, for $300 retail or wherever else you may find it, this headset is a pass to me. I actually received nothing but problems from MadCatz customer support when trying to call and get a refund (basically just didnt want the headset and didnt want to have to wait for replacements constantly). They said because its been after 30 days of purchase that I couldnt return it. Well, let me tell you, the pawn shop took it just fine and I got myself a new set of Steelseries Spectrum 7xb's and they are far superior on sound and comfort and have a far superior build quality.
DONT WASTE YOU MONEY ON A HEADSET THAT ISNT EVEN GOING TO WORK ON THE NEXT GEN CONSOLES! ITS A 360 ONLY CHAT CAPABLE HEADSET! BUYER BEWARE
3 out of 10 (and thats being generous)
A top notch piece of equipment
Coming right out, I got the headset at $200 and they are very match up to the price, as they should be. They produce excellent sounds in-game and through voice chat. Experiences with other tritton headsets have had this buzzing effect and this one doesn't have it. Very clear. The battery last for a very long time and charge quicker than they last. I was actually very surprised. I was also surprised by the feel of the headset. It looks bulky but doesn't feel like much. I am very satisfied. A buyer would definitely get their money's worth if they paid for them
Top Notch Headset!
Upgraded from the earforce x42's to these. Sound Quality is superb. So nice not being tethered to the controller anymore! Very handy having independent battery level indicators, 2 charge packs and music volume control all built in. My only complaint is that it doesn't relay the dolby digital signal - so I'm going to have to get an optical splitter for those times when I'm not wearing the headset and still want surround sound.
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.
