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.
I originally bought this to replace my old wired headsets due to the ports on my 360 controllers no longer working. After getting it set up an hour after buying it, it worked pretty okay. Sadly, I live in a place where I cannot talk too loud, so it didn't pick up sound then if you're talking lower than a slight yell - in my opinion. After having it for about six months it randomly started disconnecting while still being turned on; I had to shut it off and turn it back on to make it work again, still while charged. Other than that it holds a great, long-lasting charge even with being so old for me. It works on either ear as well, so long as you put the small plastic clip on the correct way. Easy to mute and unmute the sound, and to turn the volume of the earpiece up and down if you're hard of hearing. I have yet to use the Bluetooth capabilities for I don't use Bluetooth.
Very great condition after 1 year!!
So, I've seen that 50/50 of people are liking and disliking this Xbox 360 Bluetooth Wireless Headset. I was scared at the cash register when buying it. Right now I'm an experienced user and will give you all the details. I used the headset on both ears and worked perfect, plus all my friends can hear me clearly even when not wearing the device. I've used it up to 25 feet as my maximum range, and to tell you the truth, sometimes my friends on Xbox Live can/cannot hear me (as it has to send the signal to the Xbox. I use a Xbox 360 Slim device. Sometimes my internet adapter that is hidden on the Xbox turns off or just fails to load for the motherboard. I usually have to turn off the Xbox or go to my Ethernet Options. Don't be scared by this, it's a simple fix. The Bluetooth part is very useful when driving, listening to music from your phone, or not wanting to pick up your phone (It automatically answers for you). It lasts at least 2 hours and up to 5 hours (Depending how your using it). I bought my headset about 1 year ago, so take my word for it. Hope this was very resourceful if your wondering to buy it or not.
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.
For the money you can't beat these, clear sounds, battery last, be sure not to waste your money if these bad boys are still being sold. . .
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.
This item is terrible!
If you buy this product i will guarantee you will highly dislike it! it will catch every little sound like a fan. I bought this in hopes it was good but when i joined a party with my friends & i had my fan aimed at me on low & my friends on xboxlive kept yelling at me telling me to leave the party or turn on my mic because they said that it sounds like a hurricane was blowing wind directly into the mic. Also trust me when i say it will fall off ur ear most likely. waste of money!
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.
Good But not great/2 for 1
The main reason I bought this item was so I have the same headset for my Xbox 360/ps3... And it works great for that fact, plus I have smaller ears and it fits pretty good for me (it come with three different sizes of ear buds and the ear hook) it is fairly simple to connect to 360 and ps3....BUT when I was testing out the feedback on this item there was ALOT of background noise it was picking up with static, now I don’t know if that was just my side or if others were hearing it as well…but that’s not a big problem for me im just glad I could have it hooked up to my 360/ps3 =) Double thumbs up to that
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!
