As I mentioned previously I bought an XBox wireless headset that was perfectly good for in game chats. The trouble I was having was that I ONLY play COD Black Ops and I only play at night when the kids have gone to bed. This meant that I had to have the volume on the TV turned down pretty low and I was definately at a disadvantage not hearing people creeping round corners or jumping on crates, etc. I tried some nrmal headphones into the TV but the wires restricted the distance I could get from the TV and you obviously had no voice chat.
After a surf round I came up with either the Turtle Beach X41 wireless headphones for XBox or the Trittons. Here it came down simply to price as Amazon had a brief sale on the Turtle Beaches and I got them for £100 instead of £130. I didn’t want to go for a cheaper wired or analogue version because of the hassle with cable tidyness and having to piggyback the cables, I was after an option that allowed me just to use the HDMI connection from my XBox to TV and another single digital out from the XBox to something.
Setup on the Turtle Beaches is exactly this, you simply use a digital cable (supplied) from the back of the XBox into the Turtle Beach box and its all done.
The sound is amazing from these I have to say, turned up or low down voice chat is great and the detail in the sound is amazing. From just using the TV I had no idea that generators hummed or the flies made noises but they all do and it adds a massive amount to the atmosphere of the game.
This is what Turtle Beach have to say about them:
