Xbox 360 Wireless Headset X41
The best headphones I have laid eyes on...from the wireless feature to the bass boost, this is an overall great product. the re is only one problem i can thick of and that is that it needs two AAA batteries, but if you are like me and have four rechargeable then you are set....charge one pair while you use the other. It works a around. There are only 3 wires,one is a chat wire, you can control almost any thing you want on the base stand. My rating 5/5 stars
Super Sonic Hearing
Well I would like to start off saying that this headset is an awesome design! But the way this thing works in reality is not what I thought it would be like. When I first got this headset it acted poorly when I was in an Xbox Live Party but now it is acting a little bit better. So before you get so fed up that you send it back just try to mess with it a little to make sure everything is plugged in right. When using this headset while in the middle of a game like say Campaign of Assassins Creed 3 you can hear the sound of someone behind you walking up towards you. So overall it it a great buy!
Awesome headset never had a problem
all i have to say is buy it it is awesome. but make sure you get some rechargeable AAAs i have had this head set for a year now and have had no problems. so buy it that's all i have to say
This is a great product. The overall design is amazing. You can hear things amazingingly. the dolby 7.1 surround sound is amazing. Simply amazing all i can say
Turtle Beach x41 headphones review
These wireless headphones are a great value for 7.1 surround. Can take optical signal from pretty much everything. Sounds is good and bass boost helps when activated.
Headphones are comfortable and felt great on longer wearing sessions.
Chat boost works well, but if you have the volume turned up, you won't always hear your own voice.
A few cons though, clicking can be heard if near a wireless router. Clicking was more obvious when using a wireless connection from a Wii in the other room.
Another con was that the optical cable included in the package didn't connect to my optical outputs or the base, therefor digital input "pass thru" was useless. Emailed Turtle Beach and explained my problem. Said they'd send out a new cable, but I never got it.
Other than that, I have 4 rechargeable AAA batteries. This works well when you don't want to buy new batteries. Got an extra AAA 4-pack and headphones are always powered.
I've had this set for a while now and still works great for my home theater.
i tried out this headset for all but 2 days before i decided to exchange it for the Tritton AXPROs. Turtle Beach headsets are light, which is good, but the only reason they're light is because they are made with cheap material. I didn't find anything positive about this headset besides the weight. The mic is really sensitive so even the smallest sounds might be heard by people in your lobby. The wireless 2.4GHz has quite a lot of interference with all your other electronic devices (laptop, wireless router, phone, etc.). You can hear crackling noises coming from the headset and that becomes quite irritating after a few hours. The battery life is terrible if you don't buy rechargeable batteries. The regular batteries lasted me about 4 hours before the headset started shutting off and i ended up hearing only people's voices and no game noises. I gave up after this because i wasn't about to spend more money on batteries and have interference. Honestly, turtle beach headsets are way overpriced for the quality you get. Turtle beach has to be the worst headset brand out there that you can find in stores. I would not recommend this product to anyone. It's quite terrible.
can i marry this thing?
love it love it love it! speakers are amazing, its comfy, and easy to set up! if you are serious about gaming and want an edge get one!
this headset is not worth the money
This was my first gaming headset and i was very excited with the 7.1 surround sound. The sound quality at first was amazing and i loved it very much however my wireless rouder is in my room and the frequancies mess with eachother and it causes a lot of static. And then the whole having to change the batteries everyday and those batteries dying in the middle of an intense game of zombies really sucked. Another bad thing was the fact that if my wire going from the headset to the controller was not in the perfect spot it would echo. I bought a new wire thinking it would fix the problem but no, that only made it where i could not stop the echoing. Literally the only good thing is that yes they were really comfy.
Simply the Best!!!
Sound: These headphones sound amazing!!! It's exactly like a movie theater. Once you have the bass boost on, it feels like you're right there in the game. There is also chat boost so when things start getting loud you can still here your teammates scream for your help. Design: These headphones are extremely lightweight for the quality you get. It is made out of a surprisingly durable plastic and has very nice padding at the top of the set for supreme comfort. Also the mic can be removed if you chose not to use it. All controls are located on the left headphone for easy on-the-spot access. However there are some cons. One is the price, If you can afford these you should definitely get them, the sound quality is worth it. Two is that it takes batteries. You don't necessarily have a thousand extra AAA's. I bought an energizer rechargeable battery kit for 10.99 at Walmart and it charges both AA and AAA batteries. If you're willing to invest in rechargeables, then batteries shouldn't be a problem. Lastly there is one issue that sort of bugs me. Sometimes if there is something in the way of the receiver or if something close is on the same 2.4 GHz frequency, then you may hear small sound pops. Other than these easily fixed problems this is an absolutely great headset. Great for MW3, BF3, and Skyrim. Once you hear the Turtle Beach X41 you will never want anything else.
Buy good batteries
At first I plugged them in by my wireless router and cordles phone, and they were horrible. I moved all that stuff away to another room and they still didn't work. Then I bought some really good batteries and they work awesome. The sound is unreal. I mainly played MW3, but a friend brought BF3 and that was cool too. I love these just make sure nothing is around them that will cause static.
