Pros Great build, based on great philosophy. The DSP is a boon and really works well for games, producing a crystal clear sound (you can hear a pin prick). Bluetooth function is also a huge bonus.
Cons PX 5's DSP is awesome for games, but bad for movies because the default settings of the DSP sets the surround channels way too high and channel levels cannot cannot be individually adjusted (the crystal clear pinprick that worked so well for games became
Summary I love the design of this product and where it is headed, especially in terms of an onboard DSP. However, without it the PX5 is just another close-ended headset with bluetooth connnection, and the DSP ultimately fails to deliver due to poor customisability.
Pros The best sound i've heard in years, especially from headphones. It's comfortable and the buttons are easily accesible.
Cons Bluetooth adapter for the Xbox360 is sold seperatly. For $250, they could have at least thrown that in. Would have been nice for a "charge" option to plug the headphones into instead of using disposable batteries.
Summary Excellent product, very pricey especially for gaming, but any hard core gaming enthusiast should have a pair.
Pros 1) Wireless and bluetooth to play and speak in PS3
2) Digital RF Wireless Reception that alow me to be behind a wall and still be able to hear the sound
3) AA Rechargeble Batteries
Cons 1) The built quality could improve, it´s a lot of plastic, but I love the textile material of the headset cups that are much more resistant and durable
2) It is expensive
Summary This is a amazing headphone, now I can play all the night without disturbing my fiance and my neighborbut. By buying these headphones, I did not know how important and beautiful sound of the games. Without a decent sound you lose at least 30% of the game.
I love the option for AA batteries because I live in Brazil and I can find these rechargebles batteries anywhere. So I will not have to buy Unique batteries that are hard to find and when found they are extremely expensive. And if some day the company fails, I'll be able to continue using my headset because the batteries are common.
But this headphone is extremely expensive, $250,00 is more than the price of a new console. I think a fair price would be something around $120,00.
Pros This thing was absolutely amazing. The sound was crisp and clear, mic was great, and the sat very well for extended periods of time. Bluetooth was amazing when paired with my HTC EVO.
Cons 2.4 Ghz broadcast channel causes problems with wireless.
Summary This product is amazing in all ways except for the 2.4 ghz issue. It causes both my xbox 360 and my ps3 to disconnect from the internet. It also causes problems with my laptop and desktop that are wireless. If you want amazing sound, these are by far the best out there. If you want wireless internet, however, you may want to look elsewhere.
"Great product"on by shmeaball
Pros -50mm speakers that give you great surround sound
-Completely wireless for PS3
-Everything everyone else said
Cons -Echoes sometimes(More info in summary) on xbox
-For the AA batteries, just get rechargeable batteries and you will be fine
-If you have a wifi base near you head set or base station then you may get some popping sounds in the head set when someone is on
Summary My first head set and I have to say, I have used the X-31's and X-11's and they don't even compare with the PX-5's. The only problems anyone should have with this product are the popping noises when there is RF interference, not completely wireless, but the only wire is from the head set to the controller, and the echoing when people are talking to you. Also the surround sound is only 5.1 on xbox because the xbox does not support the Dolby digital 7.1 surround sound. Otherwise it is a grate product and if you have the money, you should buy it because it gives you a competitive edge in games.
