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.
Looks good but they should've included one with every console.
It's not included! Com'on - wasn't that something the Xbox 360 did right? Since I'm already complaining - and now paying for it - why is it wired? It has a more complex plug that the 360 headset, shouldn't things be progressing simpler? Oh, and another thing, Astro should be talking to MS about having compatiblity for their current headset. (ie A40s)
the xbox one doesn't have to have a head set. The Kinect is a mic also. I am not defending I'm just stating a fact. Although some people prefer headsets for late night gaming so they don't bother others trying to sleep.
Can you imagine the background noise with Kinect MICs? You're going to hear Echoes, Babies, Chatter, and just randomness shit. Kinect for a MIC is a bad idea sorry.
Its not included? Wtf? Its like ms is doing a 360 on everything they did right on the 360!
360 is a total circle coming back to the same point you started at so if they did a 360 at this point in time than nothing would change. If they did 180 degree turn they would be doing the opposite. That's why we see names like XBox180 being written.
Lol, a 360 would mean that MS decides to take the mics away only to come full circle and include them again. This is a one80.
did you pass high school man?! it's 180 :p
Haha... I goofed up on that one! I meant 180... So i got distracted when i was writing it! Lol
no, the One.Eighty.
If it's not included then I don't know what's going on with MS. That was one of the biggest complaints regarding the PS3 (even though you could use almost ANY Blue Tooth), and people praised the 360 for having a mic with each console. And they just drop it. If true then the money must really be blinding M$. Someone must have taped two quarters over their eyes, because they can't see anything but how to maximize profits even if it cost us some of our previous fans. This M$ would rather have 50 million gamers that they can keep under control 24/7 then 80 million who may want to purchase a few used games every now and then, shop around for deals on XBLG subscriptions, and maintain smaller business.
Never understood why more people DIDN'T have a mic on PS3 since, at the time, EVERYBODY was walking around with those damn Blue Tooth headsets in their ears in public. Maybe Sony should have advertised it better...but damn..really?
I agree Kratos. But as far as head sets go, I never had a problem with the one that came with the Xbox. Just bought the wireless on so I could walk around the house hands free while I chat.
not included in the console? the ps4 headset is included in the console but the xbox ones isnt? wow the playstation 4's online commmunity is gonna be way better with everyone talking on mics and at 399 dollars it cant be beat. ps4 is the definitive next gen game console experience.
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.
