Xbox 360 Wireless Headset – Review

Release Date: November 22, 2005
Manufacturer: Microsoft

If you’ve been keeping up with Microsoft accessories, you’ll be aware of the Xbox 360 Wireless Headset. Also, if you’ve been pondering whether it’s worth it, i’ve already got you covered.

The first question most people ask when it comes to things like this one is: Do I really need this? Well, we all know that the answer to that question – because you get a headset with your Xbox Live subscription initially. A better question to ask is whether you should spend $60 on it. My answer: That depends on the person.

Personally, It ROCKS. First off, it’s a bit lighter on the head than the Xbox Live headset for the 360. Mostly, that’s because it’s not wrapped over the top of your head, but over your ear.


Connecting the headset is as simple as connecting a wireless controller. Press the connect button on the controller, and it finds your 360. You might notice on the inner sides have four numbered lights next to the connect button, and they let you know which port your headset is connected to. You’ll also notice on the lit quarters of the Ring of Light on your 360. If it’s on a port you don’t want, tap the connect button and it switches ports.


You might notice a slight echo at first, but it shortly fades away. Other than that, it’s just as good as the corded headset – and that says a lot.


The Xbox 360 Wireless Headset is pretty nice. Whether or not you want to purchase it depends on your personal tastes, but i’m happy I did. I’d recommend it!

    I have to say that i’m not impressed. I bought mine about 2 weeks ago. And i’ve already got my money back. Now let me tell you why. When I opened it I loved the sight. So when I turned it on, it worked great. So After playing about a day It started to have bad syncing problems, and would shut of everyknow and then. So I turned off my xbox 360 and it worked again. I was willing to let it pass and forget about it. But one day It did the same thing again! So I turned off my xbox360. Still nothing? Yes! Still NOTHING! So I tryed charging it, Wouldn’t turn on when it charged. Maybe it’s just the charger. Or! maybe that this is a piece of shit. I would not buy it If I were you. What i’m buying is the Turtle beach x31 headset. It $100.00. They also have a better one Called the x41. Or if thats to expensive they also have 60 dollars ones and less. So If you want to try it go ahead but Your losing your money on the Microsoft headset. So Make sure you keep the recipet!

    What I’m saying to you is To try it urself. It diddn’t work for me. I liked the thing it was cool just had bad problems. Plus the Turtle beach is waaaay!! more comfortible. Seriously! I would tell you. That if your gonna buy a 60 dollar piece of shit, Why not buy a 100 dollar thing that actualy works? I do not understand these peolpe saying. “OMFG IT WORKS SOOO WELL” Welp, Guess they are on crack!
