XBOXHome: "Again, we’re looking at headphones here which compliment the Xbox One, not merely work fairly well with it"
The Microsoft brand headset works and feels extremely good.
I dont recommend TB headsets. They are low quality and will break eventually.
Mine has been fine so far...but Im guessing you had your longer than mine. What specifically was the fault on yours? were they for XB1 or X360 also?
it was a PX21 and an X12. My PX21s broke after 1.5 years of use (left earcup fell off). I then purchased the X12, with the DSS amplifier. After 8 months of use, the same problem, left earcup fell off. Now im using an Audio Technica ATH-M50 and I plan to buy a clip on mic. The sound quality and build quality is outstanding compared to those headsets I had. Headphones usually have a greater audio quality than headsets. I learned its better to buy some headphones and buy a separated mic, instead of headsets. Of course the price range is different, but every TB headsets building materials are almost the same, no matter the price tag. The ATH M50s are not gaming ideal (mostly for music), but with the DSS on it is pretty good.
That sucks. Hopefully these XB1 headsets are more durable. I used the standard official wireless for years on my x360. these are my first turtles. Admittedly I got suckered in by the titanfall design, but they do sound descent, enough, just not great.So far they been workin fine though. I know about audio technica from my music production background. I can certainly agree with your choice. They make good quality audio gear.
I own the TB CoD 500 delta's for the 360 and have been VERY happy with them. The mic works well for chat and the sound is real good also. The hardest thing about them was the initial set up which is a pain in the A$$. Once set up ,them work great and have had NO issues with quality what so ever. Although I do treat them like a new born baby. Will I buy another set of TB's for my XB1? Hard to say,although the Astro A50's were my other choice for the 360 ,but could never find them in stores. I plan to get santa to bring me a xb1 headset for xmas. Hopefully by then there will be alot of choices out on the market.
I love xbox, I'm still disappointed that you gotta have an extra adapter for headphones, it's next generation and still not wireless... So mad had to buy it just so I can use my A50.
Im waiting for Astro to come out with a new wireless headset like the A50. Logitech already announced a completely wireless headset that will work with the Xbox one and not need the chat cord for it to work. Im gonna wait about 6 months hopefully by then we here something from Astro.
I'm holding off for a set Astro A50's also. They may not be the 1st out for the 1,but that extra time could make them a better choice in the long run.
Playstation Gold headset works well on it and it's been on sale recently for $65-$75. Works on PC too.
I got the titan fall headset (basically reskinned turtle beach X0-fours)..also got the controller :) . coolest looking headset I ever owned. good sound too, but could be better.
Adapter plus the Siberia v2 (non-usb) version. Most comfortable headset ever. Just need a splitter for under 10 bucks to fit the adapter.
I'm using my Astro A40's with the wireless mixamp they no longer sell. Of course I had to buy the stereo adapter just to get game chat working, but the mixamp allows for a much better surround sound experience. I've tried to use the headset plugged into just the stereo adapter and the sound is pretty disorienting. Hopefully Microsoft is working on a firmware update for the "stereo adapter" for a great surround experience. It should be possible.
