Looks familiar, no?
Looks ok I guess... But will it be comfy?
Well the 360 version of this is great.
They're horrible, the audio is bad, the speaker goes out, or the port eventually dies. However, it was still brilliant to have one included with every console. That simple gesture is now a requirement going forward (or a build in mic on the controller).
I agree with both of you (omni25p & Abizzel1), it was a good headset, yet turned to crap over time. I went through three throughout my years of gaming on 36o. It was so light I would forget I had it on.
Would it be possible to use a bluetooth headset with Xbox One? Like, would I be able to pair my Playstation Wireless stereo headset with PS4 and Xbox One? One more thing. Will Xbox One come with a headset like PS4? Too lazy to search on Google :D
@zeee I don't think so, because if that was the case the current Turtle Beach headsets would work with the X1 since the PS3 uses Bluetooth to run them currently, so there would be no need to buy new ones.
Microsoft doesn't use Bluetooth it uses a new wifi direct connection for the controller for better audio and quicker recompose. ps3 uses a slow Bluetooth 2.1 which reduces the audio quality because bandwidth is under 3mbps vs 360 wifi direct 250 mbps...
hated the 360 version. Went through three or four of em. This one looks like it might be a little bit more sturdy and a bit more durable
@Omi25p Sorry about the disagrees. Dont worry ill give you a bubble because i too like the headset. People around here dont want anything positive being said towards the One or 360. Sony fanboys were bad before, they are impulsive/repulsive now.
With the XBOX 360, the black ops headsets would have a buzzing sound that the USB connect didn't have. I'm more interested if now both the PS4 and XBOX ONE will have the same buzzing sound when plugged in.
@coolbeansrus What the has this gotta do with Sony fanboys? If anything your comment is bordering on fanboyisum lol
It looks like it only costs them $0.50 to make these things....
Because of the X1 being bundled with Kinect 2.0 this headset will not be included in the box. I can't stand the customer service agent look, always thought people on 360 headsets looked dorky and this one is following that trend. Prefer my blu-tooth mic, crappy audio quality > looking like a dork I guess :/
Better than PS4's headset...I don't know why they didn't include a bluetooth headset since they are cheap. The 360 version of this lasts for a while but obviously its not top notch quality or anything. I've had about 3 or 4 of them in the past 5 years.
I disagree...Xbox One headset looks like a Customer Services Agent...maybe they want you to get used to calling them...? PS4 headset is cheap and functional as the mic is in the pad as well. Big deal about bloody headsets....
Had my wireless one for 5 years and still going.
Problem is it isn't bundle with the xbone which means voice communication will be mostly through kinect. I can just imagine how bad that will be with echoes and tv noise and not being able to hear your teammates over in game music. I think the community won't be as vocal.
PS4 will also have a mic in the box. Just saying.
360 headset was the crappiest headset I've ever used. This one doesn't look any better, unfortunately. Really couldn't expect much when they were included in all console purchases. Better off buying a Triton or TB for both consoles imo.
does this come with the xbox one if not its dumb and useless im not gonna spend 499 for a console 60 dollars for live and then 60 for this headset.
It's pretty sad that they won't include this, nor include compatibility with 360 headsets.
The Kinect is a mic in itself.
Think about the echoes, background noise, distortion of TV sounds. Every lobby is going to sound like white noise.
@stage88 - If all that background noise isn't bad enough, you've got those special people who think their music should be everyone's soundtrack. I hate humans sometimes.
I just stated a fact and I get disagreed. I didnt say kinect mics wouldnt have problems. FFS n4g!
PS4's mono headset looks better... what can I say I personally think Japan make better stuff.
bubble up, good one
It looks good, but I really wish it was over the hear headphones. Earbuds tend to fall out of my ear sadly :/. I'm glad that I can use my Turtle Beaches with the PS4 controller though =D.
I've got a 7.1 Asus ROG Vulcan headset. I love it!
yeah with the ps4 you can use any headset even ones you already own. the xbox one is only compatible with new headphones you buy specifically for xbox one. xbox live community is gonna suck now. everyone is gonna be on the ps4 this new gen.
Ear bud headsets are garbage, they hardly work, have crappy sound, and the audio pickup on the microphone is horrid. They skimmed on the headset so they could focus on the console, and still make sure everyone has a microphone. Doesn't change the fact that ear bud headsets suck, the 360, and X1 are no different, but still they're bad. I'd advise everyone to get a set of Turtle Beaches at the least, Astro's if you can afford them.
I had two ear bud headsets with my PS3, the one that came with Warhawk and the official Sony one. The Warhawk one did suck, but the official Sony one was great all around. I only use it for communication though. All other sound is through my home theater system.
Funny thing is: They are all made in china!
How can i get more bubbles here?
I cant say............ because I would lose more bubbles, lol.
Be happy with what you have. :)
Troll and make flame war comments. And then once in a while, pretend to stop a flame war. I should have like 9 bubbles by now lol, but I've lost maybe 4 and they won't give me any more.
Oh ok thanks :)
Be pro sony and u should be fine. Then again, why do you care about bubbles anyway? People who care about bubbles are usually biased in their comments.
It's hilariously ironic that I can justly bubble you down for being off topic.
Ima blue tooth person so ima get a blue tooth for cross chatting
There is no Bluetooth on Xbox One...I asked our media rep. She says no so here's hoping turtlebeach releases an adapter cause I love my XP500 headset and I am not even remotely about to spend another $300+ on a new one. Screw that.
I thought Xbox One did support Blu-tooth, could swear it was in their feature set diagram. :/ Well that sucks
For 499 the dang thing should be included.
its not. it was posted in here before.
You don't need the headset peeps kinect is all that's required for Skype and multiplayer games.dont rush out and buy any headphones use the ones you have now.
If you actually use communication on multiplayer games you would know the benefits of a headset over a normal mic. Everyone you are talking to would just hear themselves from the speaker output rather than having all the sound come out the headset. Also having the mic right next to your mouth rather than next to the console (where kinect would be) is another problem with what you said.
True just imagine trying to keep quiet at night the TV is low and you would have speak loudly for kinect to hear you if you wanted to let someone know something. *i got the left flank* *What you say?* *I said: "I GOT THE LEFT FLANK!* *YO KEEP IT DOWN*
just go get a wii speak man...... BEST MIC EVER :s
Your'e kidding, right? How is the Kinect, which is going to be 8-10 feet away, an adequate replacement for a mic? How is it not going to pick up background noise? How loud am I going to have to yell for it to pick up my voice and not have it think I'm giving it commands? Why would I want my comms coming through the tv speakers for everyone else to hear? Having a headphone by my ear keeps the comms seperate from the game sounds. I prefer keeping my conversations somewhat private; with me being the only one to hear whats being said to me. A wireless headset should have been standard for the next generation. This is an area PS4 also failed but at least there including a wired one.
headsets is the only way to game online. them open mics are dumnb and i dont recommend. not only do you hear everybodys background noise but the people in your houses can also hear the swearing and stuff others are saying. headsset is what you need and its what xbox 360 owners said as well on why xbox 360 was better for online community dont be hypocrits. also guess what the better online commmunity will be on the ps4. get a ps4 or be talking to no one and gaming with no one on the xbox one. i still do not understand why you guys are fighting the ps4? you should be wanting to get it its better in every way.
If you have headphones the tv sound is down low use your brain peeps you have it for a reason
"If you have headphones the tv sound is down low use your brain peeps you have it for a reason". Funny you tell us to use our brain yet you didn't think of the most common scenario, a lot of people don't play consoles sitting so close to their tvs like they do PC gaming, so tell me, how is it possible to us headphones sitting lets say, 2-3 meters away? Oh and before you say you could plug it into your xbox controller, you wont be able to use any 3rd party headsets/headphones that way from what we know so far.
Hopefully it wont break every 2 months like the 360 one does.
i bought like 3 of those headsets until i decidee to break down and spend 200 on a set of 7.1 universal turtlebeaches
Nothing sounds worse than a standard mic, i hit the mute immediately if i can hear the game in the background, it's extremely distracting especially with shooters. A high-end headset (i.e. TurtleBeach) is the best way to go. Better sound quality which heightens sense of awareness and cancels out any background noise that could be a distraction.
still rubbish to pay extra atleast ur existing bluetooth headsets that work for ps3 can still work on ps4
More squeaking children. Great. /s
Don't hate go look up the vid on kinect 2.0 and lern something
I don't know about the kinect mic, it picks up you and the neighbors across the street..
For the next generation a wireless headset should have been standard and included with every console. I'm glad to see though they went back to the old style of putting the volume and mute controls on the controller input.
May I take your order please?
I gave up on these when one zapped my right ear. Didn't injure, but was unacceptably fail...
I wonder if these will last longer than a month unlike the 4 xbox 360 wired headsets i had to buy until i got a wireless one
I've had mine since 09 and have no problems with it. People obviously don't know how to take care of things.
Well if the earpiece failed every time i don't know what i did wrong to break it . Maybe i used it too loud idk... but ive been using my wireless one since 2008 still working
I changed more failed 360s than last gen headsets
looks ugly as fuck what the fuck is that ? a fast food restaurant worker gear ??
hey everyone check this poll http://www.xboxonevspsfour....
PS4 the win
