New Xbox 360 Bluetooth headset unlocks business casual achievement (video)

The new Xbox 360 wireless headset has a form factor that ought prove familiar to anyone who has ever watched a businessman chew out his secretary while ordering at latte at Starbucks. The peripheral connects wirelessly to the console via its standard radio frequencies -- its similarities to a non-gaming Bluetooth headset are more than just skin deep, however, with the earpiece doubling as just that, making it compatible with Bluetooth-ready phones and PCs.

Taking some tips from the Official PlayStation headet I see. Good on you 360 gamers. Just a question as I don't own a 360, what is the bundled 360 headset like quality wise, confort wise and function wise? Is it good enough for those who aren't too fussy to simply use it and never need to purchase a better version?

What tips is it taking? Being Blutooth? Lol. As far as the headset that's bundled, it's good enough for people who aren't childish and break everything or people who aren't audiophiles. I would skip over all of these headsets, because I've owned them all minus this new one, and just pick a pair of Turtle Beach or something similar.

I just use Turtle beach as well

WrAiTh Sp3cTr32261d ago

Yeah, because the Turtle Beach X11s are the same price as this headset, although not Blutooth or wireless, and they'll definitely deliver a way better gaming experience.

Its taking a similar design, glossy piano black, can connect to both your phone and your console, even the design looks similar.

Off Topic: I recently bought some TB DPX21's, man have I been missing out. Game audio sounds awesome, and chatting is even clearer. Love it.

i had the orig. 360 headset and it felt like a little rock (pebble) in my ear lmao, seriously

CommonCent2261d ago (Edited 2261d ago )

The Blutooth only works for your cell phone, there is no blutooth transmitter in the Xbox 360.

M$ is such a rip off, wtf do u need a bluetooth headset for when the 360 dont have bluetooth it has ghz or w.e. its called... im not thats smart, but anyway, im assuming its to use with a phone too... which no1 really even wears them anymore and u can get a cheaper 1

consolez_FTW2261d ago (Edited 2261d ago )

Exactly man, plus this is $60!! wow, might as well get a turtle beach for that price!Plus for gaming turtle beach would definitely be the better option, I love my TB P11's, really great gaming headsets.

Where do you live where people dont use Bluetooth headsets anymore with their phones? Some hills in Kentucky?

saberfly2261d ago

Or you could use it for your Xbox and your Playstation 3.

Otheros002261d ago

How to fail the M$ way:

1.release a product branded the same as another product
(in this case the xbox 360)
2.Make it not usable with the product that it is branded after

I bet people are going to buy that headset thinking it will work for the xbox 360.

"The peripheral connects wirelessly to the console via its standard radio frequencies"

Am i missing something here? Because when i read the article it said it connects to the console.

MerkinMax2261d ago
