Xbox 360 Wireless Headset Impressions

James Woodcock writes: "Well actually I am very impressed. The audio quality is far better than the standard wired headsets Microsoft supply and actual operation of the device is fairly straight forward. Mapping your new wireless headset to your Xbox 360 is very similar to how you add wireless controllers. Hold down the appropriate button on the console and the same goes for the headset. If all goes well, one of the lights on the headset will light up and a connection is established.

To mute the microphone, you press the button on the side of the easy to reach earpiece and just in case you forget, an audible beep will occur every now and then. The wireless headset comes with a spare ear loop, USB recharge lead (no more power adapters it would seem) and a manual. It does take some getting used to as my ear hurts quite a bit after fairly short sessions, but it is not as bad now. The Mic angle is slightly adjustable and the earpiece sits quite happily next to your ear."

This has been on the market for well over a year now! It had problems early on but sometime after one of the dashboard updates, it's been working without a hitch.

I own two since I put in massive amts of hours online.

Dude, it's on your ear. It's as easy as touching your EAR.

Sorry, I found that mildly amusing.

this thing is a great piece of hardware, they did a great job on it, props for this one MS. The vision cam is awesome to, it just has so few uses for actual gaming, I do like the scan your face feature in Rainbow 6 vegas, can't believe how well that works. I hope its in RB6II
