Xbox 360 Modern Warfare 3 Wireless Headset
I read reviews on the wireless mics and I was very skeptical about buying one but I decided to give it a shot anyways . My original intention was to get the black Microsoft version but when I saw that this came with its own charging stand and looked really cool I decided to get it . The Bluetooth paring with my phone and Xbox controller works flawlessly and the sound is great . All of my friends say that the sound comes through very well and you can talk fairly low and it will still pick up . My only complaint is that they should come with different size ear clips because it would make it a lot easier to stay on different sized ears ( however I just put the clip in between my glasses and my head and it stays in place ) , and there's a little discomfort after using it for a while , but you only notice it if you actually press on your ear . However , it's not enough to take away from the overall value of this product . I also think its cool how it works with ps3 and Xbox , and you can easily switch it to another controller with the click of a button. The normal price is a little heavy but i got it on sale for $50 which truthfully would be a great normal price for this.
Great little gadget!
I picked this up today to go with my MW3 console (have had it on order for a while). I'll start off with my first impressions of this product:
1) saw it in the box, got super excited.
2) opened it up and charged it, wanted to use it
3) turned it on, connected it to my phone and then played with the 360 / blue-tooth switch for like 5 minutes listening to the night vision on / off noise
This headset is IMPRESSIVE. at first glance i was skeptical on the design but it's actually quite satisfying. the speaker is clear with massive volume range from whisper quiet to grenade-in-your-face loud, it's easy to connect, it looks rugged and cool but is still subtle enough to wear around everywhere. I've been told the mic picks up really well too, so that's a plus. i also did an audio test to see how much background noise it cancels out, and it did surprisingly well. no background noise will be heard or echoed by fellow gamers / phone talkers unless you're ABSOLUTELY BLASTING your other audio. I also noticed that while playing games, it doesn't seem to drown out the noise in one ear like most single-ear headsets do, which is really nice when you're trying to hear someone's footsteps in COD, etc. no word on battery life yet, as i haven't had it long enough to really notice, but as far as i can tell there's not one thing i don't like about this headset! (amazing that i say that about anything).
after looking at it a bit more in depth, i found that the stand it comes with gets fingerprints on it super easy (most of you won't care, but I'm crazy about that stuff... gotta love high-gloss plastics), and it seems a little weak at the docking plug as it has some minor play in it but it's perfectly fine as long as you're not slamming it into place (if u pay full price for it i doubt you will). I must say i wasn't very impressed with the design of it at first glance, but after wearing it for a few hours i realized that this isn't just a typical headset design (as weird as that might seem). it's VERY comfortable and you almost forget it's there if u have the right ear gel on for your ear (i had to switch to the large one, as i feel more comfortable with it that way), which is cool because they're very easy to swap out. and make a world of difference, but at the same time, i can see it not being fit for everyone's ears.
bottom line is:
if you want MW3 collectible stuff, and you want a new headset that you can wear around, use for everything, are willing to pay the price ($70 seems like a lot at first but when you consider it can be used for 360 AND phones? that's awesome and well worth it), like collecting stuff, are a MW3 fan, and want free shirts for your avatar on live, GET THIS!! if u don't. then don't. It's a really great piece of equipment, so if you don't want the MW3 version i suppose you can get a generic Microsoft version somewhere. but that's not a problem for me as I'm a very big fan of the COD series.
Hope this helps some of you out there on deciding whether or not to purchase this :)
Great Product But..........
This headset is great for the whole MW3 experience and it's levels above the old ones. But I feel like for the price of the MW3 Console, it should have came in the box for $400.00! Come on Microsoft!
Best Headset to Come
its the best mic to date. its a bluetooth for your phone and for your xbox. one sec im playing xbox and get a call i just switch it and talk on the phone. i can plax on live with my friends and talk then go in the car and drive somewhere without even taking it out. wireless mic and bluetooth in one. sick! plus it makes mw3 sounds when it turns on and switches. its full mw3 art. if your a true call of duty fan like me you will need this. even if you have a great mic then use this for your phone. me, i will use it for both. it shows that when your out and about and someone sees it in your ear at the store they know your a real fan. the normal wireless mics are 60 bucks this is worth every penny to buy.
Great Quality Headset and Awsome Bluetooth
I never liked the first 360 wireless headset so when I found out this new one coming out I had to try it. I got the new MW3 headset on Sat 15 Oct when my per-order came in at my local game stop. Ever since than I have fell in love with it. For the use on the Xbox, its got great quality you can hear your friends crystal clear, and they told me its sounds a lot better than the old wireless headset on there end of the conversation. For the Bluetooth aspect of this headset it’s Awesome. I use it with my android phone; the sound quality is better than another Bluetooth headset I have ever used. The bonus with it is that it also works like wireless headphones with my phone. I will hook the headset up to my android phone and when I watch movies, Netflix and, listen to music on my phone all the sound will come out the Bluetooth instead of the speakers bothering other people around me. The only draw back is that it sticks in your ear verses on my ear like the original 360 wireless headset. I had to get used to it because when I first started using it, it was making my ear raw after a few hours of use. (I use it for games and work) I don’t know how the battery life is yet because I have never ran out (with nightly charging). I did watch 6 hours of netflix without killing the battery. I also tried using it on my playstation 3 and it worked well on that too. Overall I love this headset it has great quality on the Xbox, Playstation 3, and Android Phone. I think its well worth the $ 69.95 for the MW3 addition (Like Me) or the regular one for $ 59.95….
I'm putting down the full price tomorrow for the MW3 Limited Edition Console. I cannot wait for bluetooth MW3 comes out I to will be adding this to my collection!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I think that this is a good headset for MW3.
I think that the MW3 headset is a good use for the game because there is no problems with it and it is just really cool and nice. I dont know why nobody wouldn't this cause it is a great use for the xbox game and to talk to your friends and all.
I'm getting the Limited Edition Modern Warfare 3 Console Bundle and this headset finishes off the collection. The custom Call of Duty sounds for the power on and off of both the new BlueTooth headset and my new console will be epic!
I was back and forth on buying this due to there being an equal amount of good reviews to bad. I took the chance and made a deal with my local gamestop manager that if it didnt work i could return it but it actually worked better than i expected. Pairing with the xbox and my EVO 3d went flawlessly and operate quicker. the transition from chat to phone is instant instead of any slight delay i expected. I stream my stored music as well as online (slacker radio) and the sound is very good even though its not stereo. Chat audio in both directions is top notch as well. Unless your needs involve the turtle beach headsets i would definitely consider this.
already preserved the Console now i gotta get the wireless headset!
