i will update this review later but so far.
it all looks very nice, nice box, nice case, and it plays beautifully in the ps3[better than my turtle beach]
only downside [at present] is that i cant connect the optical output to the xbox if i use the hdmi cable!
it can be fitted to the av cable but then i lose a perfect picture but gain perfect sound ,[call me fussy but for the money i just paid i expect both]
it should be ok if you have the new slim xbox, but my 'old' elite is less than 12 months old, and i dont want to change it yet.
i am still searching for a solution to this problem, but if you only have a fat xbox and like playing in hdmi then i would
keep hold of your cash until you are certain.
i havnt worked out if the virtual 5.1 is as good as true 5.1 on the gaming front [true 5.1 is supposed to be better and triton sell them cheaper if you don't care about the black ops colour and logo [sadly i do]
the truth will be told if im top of the leaderboards at call of duty next week lol.
fat xbox connection sorted
easy way.....my tv is only 6 months old, so has an optical output at the rear ..job done [i never knew it was there, its under a plastic bung. i had never heard of optical cables till i bought these headphones]
or... you can buy a xbox cable for 50 dollars [us forum]
or... cut down the av plug plastic [prize it off with a screwdriver]remove the wires and use the optical part and still fit the hdmi lead in [ type in optical/hdmi hack]
hope this helps
update on the update
to get the 5.1 dolby i had to plug the optical lead into the ps3 [not the tv]
trouble is when i swop playing the ps3 and put the xbox on i have to start transfering all the leads over
anyone any sugestions [other than buying another set]?
