Halo 4 Warhead 7.1 Wireless Surround Headset GameStop Exclusive
Over priced but worth it
I think it could a cheaper price. Say around $150. Other than that it is good. I play with it allot and almost never need to put it on the charger.
I purchased this headset three weeks ago. The headset is very comfortable and sounds amazing. I have played several times online with my brother and the mic works great. The best little extra is that each battery lasts forever and when needed a fresh spare is all charged up for a quick swap. The Warhead is by far the best Xbox headset available.
I just got mine and there just mind blowing to me. I have the Slim Xbox with the built in optical and i tried them on my old xbox with the adapter the surround didn't sound as good but still great. if the headset lit up that would be awesome and its great to listen to music with and the no mic cord= half the COD/Halo rageing. I wear 14g horseshoe style earrings and i have no problem with them bothering them. The no cords if anything is what makes it more worth while than anything else because i fall asleep with my headset all the time watching netflix and now i don't have to worry about choking at night from my x12s i will say they do need some breaking in tho there kind of tight at first hopefully not forever.
Great Gaming Headset
Warhead (7.1) has Stellar sound, Strong bass ideal for fps like battlefield,cod,& the grandaddy halo.If your an xbox player these are for you 100% wireless no dongle no chat cable just press power, also you can use these on other platforms (audio only) ps3,blu rays etc. I tried the astro a50's & and the bummish turtlebeach tangos (5.1) and they're just not up to par.but they are expensive and so are the other ones. trade in some old games and get these thats what i did.
The best headset I've used.
Found these in my Gamestop the day AFTER Halo 4 came out. I got them because I've never owned anything other than the Xbox Wireless Mic. Anyways, this headset is FANTASTIC! It makes me feel like I'm thrown right into the game. I can now tell which direction the shots are actually coming from, so now I don't have to spin around searching drastically for my enemy. The design fits perfectly over my ears and is really comfortable to wear. The only complaint I have is the rubber under the head band, some times it catches on my hair and removing it when it does is painful. In comparison to other quality headsets I've used, this blows Turtle beach out of the water. It's truly wireless interface is amazing how it syncs right to the console! The EQ settings that are made for games, movies, or music is amazing as well. 10/10 On my scale of headsets. Would buy Triton's again.
Hands down the best headset I've ever used
This headset blows away Turtle Beach and Astro. Its so sturdy, and the sound is phenomenal. Since they are sturdy, they are heavier then some of the other brands I've owned, but you wouldn't know it once you put them on. The battery life is awesome, and with one battery always charging, there is zero gaming interruption. Another great product by tritton!
These are not 7.1 surround headphones!
BUYER BEWARE! These are marketed as 7.1 surround headphones, and are priced as such, unfortunately they are just regular stereo headphones with a decent DSP that simulates surround through stereo headphones. If you remove one of the changeable ear pads you will see that there is only 1 speaker per ear. As stereo headphones they are a fair consumer grade wireless headphone. Wireless coverage area is much less than the 33 feet claimed on the box (more like 15 feet). Sound quality is OK, but sometimes feels a little over processed. Now some of the good things about these headphones, Two batteries really are nice to have one to charge, one for use, great call! The headphone covers are very comfortable for consumer grade headphones, unless you have really big ears they will stay off of the headphones. They breathe decently and your ears won't sweat much. Another nice thing is the integrated XBOX Live voice chat, works great! If these headphones were half the price and not marketed as surround they might be a fair deal.
As awesome as this headset is when i first got it, i was so excited to not have a wire anymore between my headset and controller... however with that being said here are my thoughts on it:
Two rechargeable battery packs
Easy synch up with xbox (easiest i have dealt with)
Okay volume for gaming. I wouldn't say its true 7.1 ss as some others have already said... i wanted a volume 11 and barely got an 8.
receiving chat is terrible! static breakup was almost a constant problem when chatting with my friends... as long as they stayed quite it was okay but one of my friends has the x12 headsets and was always louder coming through and i could never hear him properly.
Avoid if your a party player as you will be frustrated; if you play with friends. Also if you dont mind not having a very loud game noise coming through i guess it would be alright. the design is awesome and ease of use couldn't be more simple in my opinion. This headset is not worth the 300 bones to dish out.
As a result i ended up returning this and getting the Astro A50's. despite having a cable running from controller to headset its much more superior to the warhead. also i get true 7.1 ss and its loud.
will never get rid of these quality is great and proud ive bought these but didnt buy them here wish i did would saved 40$ but over all amazing
1. Optical Audio cable is of poor quality to be included with such an expensive headset. 2. Battery Charging Cover is difficult to open if you do not have fingernails. The solution I made for this was going to walmart, going to the fabric section and asking for a 'sample' of black ribbon (they give free samples) Then glued the ribbon to the inside of the magnetic battery cover so i can open it without having to pry it open. The audio seemed to work well, except for a slight crackling sound when the volume is cranked up and no audio, which i think is normal. I wish the headset cradle/stand would be easier to dock, i mean.. it works, but sometimes it doesn't match up perfectly and needs an adjustment to get the perfect seating.
