Xbox 360 Bluetooth Wireless Headset
SUPERB alternative to original wireless headset
Ive owned one of the original style Xbox Wireless Headsets for well over a year now, but rarely used it. I always found myself going back to a wired mic w/ boom because it hurt my ear so bad, and it always felt like it was about to fall off. Then one day I saw this advertised on XBL on the Tech with Tina show. I knew this would be 100x better since its the same design as the official PS3 sets. And get this... It even WORKS on my PS3 also. It says "Xbox 360 Bluetooth Headset" right on the screen. Ironic, isnt it?
This set sounds great, its extremely comfortable, even through 50 waves of Horde. And the battery has a great ratio of charge/use time. Xbox nailed it with this one, this set is awesome in every way. To the people who are giving it a 2/10, you are obviously doing something wrong, or have a defective set. The ONLY bad thing about this headset is the price tag. It cost as much as a new game, but its definitely worth it.
JUST GOT IT!
Lightweight, comfortable on ear. Range is 30 feet, no disconnect from 360 like previous headset. Some people say they hear static when I talk, but I can hear everyone fine. Also, they say it cuts on and off when I start and stop talking, I believe this is the noise cancelling device working. Tried it on my left ear and friends couldn't hear me. Noticed the microphone is pointing down on my left ear and up on my right? Ear loop seems fragile but I'll give it a while. Bluetooth works and headset makes 360 sound when switching from XBOX live chat to Phone calls. A must buy if you need a new headset!
I have had this mic for over a year now and have had no problems. All these people on here write bad review about this product need to realize it is a bluetooth headset, which means you have to charge it for 24 hours even if it say just for 2 hours. I play on XBL everyday and thee sound is crystal clear and everyone I play with can hear me fine. I bought a second one for my step-son and he has had no problems as well. I recommend this mic to everyone.
Worth the Purchase!
I think this headset performs excellently! I had no problems with the set up, it's super easy, you basically just turn it on and sync it to your 360 console, could not be simpler. I like not having to see the mic out of the corner of my eye or have cables constraining me to a foot and a half from my controller. People were complaining about it not working on their left or right ear because it is pointing the wrong direction. The earpiece is adjustable, you can move it to fit your preference. It is not the most comfortable design because the earbud piece does not go all the way into your ear, it functions as more of a support that rests on your inner ear, but after a while you completely forget that it is there. I had no problems hearing others and they have not experienced any problems hearing me. The bluetooth is also an awesome feature, because instead of having to remove your headset during gameplay you just flip a switch and you can answer your phone, and then immediately flip back and you are reconnected to your console. Great quality and it is a very good headset to buy if you are looking for a cheap wireless headset.
Such a great product!
I went into my local GameStop looking for a traditional wireless headset & when the store clerk mentioned this one to me, I was very intrigued. I took this product home & quickly became very impressed! The battery lasts a long time & the audio quality to and from the device sounds great- much better than my old wireless headset. The design is sleek, well thought out & very functional. I love being able to switch from a LIVE party to a phone call & back again in just moments. I highly recommend this to anyone who hates having to put the controller/headset down in the middle of a LIVE match for a phone call.
I'm seeing a lot of reviews about this mic, saying that after they first purchased the product, that their friends seemed to have difficulties hearing them, or hearing a lot of static. I also suffered from this defect, but only IN THE BEGINNING. Now-a-days there's so much static, and electrical currents in the air, some devices have a problem with some interference. at least with this product, i felt as though it just needed a little "warming up." After about 3 days after opening the mic, all the interference and static stopped. Since then i have moved to a whole different part of the city, and it still works great. Don't forget that this mic is also bluetooth ready, which can sometimes be a major issue with other cell phone mics and devices. previously i had used the older wireless mic from Microsoft, and for the most part it was great, only very uncomfortable and easily broken. This one is very convinent, if you're someone that gets a lot of phone calls during gameplay, or just in general. All it takes is one flick of a switch and you can be on your phone, it'll even ring in your ear if your getting a call. Typically my phone isn't ever close to me, and my house is fairly large, and i can still receive calls through the headset, crisp and clean sound. As far as XBL goes, I haven't had a problem since the very first three days. I love the mic, I guess I may be a little more patient then some gamers.
i love this mici can go probley 30 feet away its awesome!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Amazing thing to have! :)
This bluetooth headset has great sound and a fair price. This product is a must buy! Anyone who bus this headset will enjoy.
The functionality of this headset must vary from person to person. some people say it is horrible, but it works fine for me. The range is great, my Xbox is in my basement and i can go a lll the way up to my second floor room and other peoples voices only break up a little. The battery life isn't great, but i recommend right when you're done playing, just plug it in to the Xbox to charge and it will be fine. The only other problem is that the mic is not as powerful as it should be, you have to speak clearly for people to understand you. this is the only headset i have had, so i can't really compare it to anything, but the sound quality is good for me. It is better than if you are talking on cell phone with three bars for sure.
best mic ever
i had the regular xbox360 mic for about 5 years and it finally broke so i went out and bought the bluetooth and it has so many features and i hear crystal clear and my friends can hear me i would reconmend to this someone
