XBox 360 Spectrum 5XB Headset
Headset is Outstanding in Performance!!
I received this headset for Christmas 2012 and was pleasantly surprised. This headset is much better than the "over priced" brands.
Yes, even at my age and a hardcore female gamer, this headset is great when playing games like Call of Duty MW3, Black Ops II, and Sniper Elite, Splinter Cell and even Dishonored.
Once you put the headphones on and begin playing, you are instantly in the middle of the game. The game comes to life and you are in the middle of the action. You feel the effects as if it is really happening to you.
DONT BUY THESE!!!!
Do not buy this headset. It is cheap and breaks really easy. I bought them thinking they were good but they broke in the first month. You can buy the turtle beach x11s for cheaper and they work better. Dont waste your money on this headset. BAD CHOICE!!!
Worked great until one headphone died
These are comfortable and the sound quality is great, but after about 3 months of use one headphone stopped working. Sometimes when jiggled around, it would work for a few seconds and then stop again. I'm assuming it was a wiring problem. I'll be buying a new headset, but not this one.
great but small issues
I love the product, it compares to astro a40's. but mine won't play my friends voices on xbox live. I still think they are a worthy product and are worth every penny! If you are hesitant of getting this headset, take it from me and buy it!!!!!
Worked great, except mic
This headset was a very good one. I look around for a while for a new headset to buy, and these stood out. They are a little pricy, but they are worth it. The only problem I had was the mic attachment, the MixAmp didn't really feel comfortable. Also, it took me about 5 minutes to actually get my mic to work, and when I did, my friends could barely hear me. The sound quality and the setup of the headset are great though. I love how you can use it for an MP3 or iPod. The retractable mic is great too. Worth $90 if you can (watch out for the mic though).
BEST HEADSET FOR THE BUCK
I recently got this headset and this thing just kicks so much butt in terms of quality and sound for the money. I have used other types of headsets before that were more expensive than this one. All I could say when first using them were wow these are really comfortable and made of better quality plastics than turtle beach. Overall I am very satisfied with the headset and recommend it to anyone who wants a sick headset with some good features like the LiveMix which works well and a good break down to travel around with. 10/10
Great headset, but mine were defective.
This headset is wonderful. The sound is incredible, and it's very comfortable. I used it both for Netflix and for gaming, and it's great. My only complaint is that after about 4 months, one of the speakers stopped working for no reason. I never made the sound very loud, I never dropped them, etc., it just stopped working randomly while watching a movie. I was kind of mad since I spent 90$. But I think mine were probably just defective, and other than that they were incredible.
This is easily a 150 dollar value for 90 bucks! It has excellent sound quality and an exceptional mic attachment. The headset has plenty of length for the mic and headset hookup to your HDTV. A switch for switching the headset on and off is hooked right into your controller for ease of use. It comes in a nice glossy black and matches the elite and new 360 consoles.You cannot go wrong with this best buy in headsets!
Great pair of headphones.
I purchased these back a little bit after Christmas. The sound quality is great and I love the fact that you can adjust the volumes for the game and for game chat. Sometimes you need that for the trash talkers if mulitplayer games. And that you listen to your game without disturbing your neighbors or family members in the other room. If your a camper in any COD games these are good for that because you can hear the footsteps and bullets fly on by. These headphones are nice and light compared to other headphones like the Sharkoons. Sometimes I just use it to watch Netlix because the sound quality is so good. My one problem is that sometimes my friends on the other side dont hear me so i have to talk louder or repeat myself for others to hear me. Another plus is that you can use these headsets on your computer to chat with others on msn or Skype. Its under $100 and have a better sound quality and feel to it then Sharkoons or Turtle Beaches. Less cables to deal with so you wont get all tangled and if you prefer wireless Steel Series will be coming out with a wireless pair very soon. These headphones also come apart for traveling but are a little bit sensative.
Great, but not worth the money in my opinion
My friend bought this headset and I went over and he let me use it. I loved the sound quality and it never faded out when I talked into it. I loved it and I was going to buy it until he told me it was 100 dollars. I know that the 20 dollar one can mess with your ears, but I do not want to pay 100 dollars. I think that I will save up for a kinect and use it or just use the text feature.
