"As good as it gets in wireless headsets with 5.1 sound."4.5 starson by ShotgunNostrils
Pros: Very comfortable and well built, solid feeling materials. Quality is evident as soon as you try these on. Super easy to install and operate. The controls are very intuitively placed on the left ear piece and easy to access. color matches my Xbox 360!
Cons: The infrared signal is touchy, if some body walks through your field of view you WILL hear a fuzz. I'm sure some one will come along and use Dect-6 or blue tooth signals and take over the spot at the top of the food chain. But until then this is it.
Summary: Consider your lay out of your room and your components carefully when making a decision on this headset! If you can set the transmitter unit centered...and as close to ear level or at least angle it upwards/downwards toward you ears you will get the most performance. A hinged base would be so welcome on this product ( I have mine propped up with coasters) to get the angle just right. A plasma TV will throw a little more fuzz into the sound too so try to go as far away as possible from a plasma as you can for the lowest noise factor. If you enjoy being mere inches from your screen you will not want to use this headset. It is such a plus to be able to hear all of the sound of a game and all of the chatter of teamates at the same time, it actually handles that very well. Plus being able to turn the main volume down and not have it interfere with other people in the house has been the biggest unforeseen benefit of all. If the price was under 100 dollars I would have given them a 5 out of 5.
