Product Description

Product Description

No longer will you be caught out by the enemy's soft footsteps sneaking up behind you, or the distant reload of weapons because your speakers can't pick them up. The EX-05 comes with true-to-life stereo acoustics that make sure you hear your enemy, before you see them.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gioteck EX-05 Wired Headset (PS3) 22 Dec 2011
Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Ordered this Headset yesterday and it just arrived. Delivery service was very good, packaging in good condition.
The item comes in a stylish package with a window which allows you to have a look at the headset itself, looks fantastic and good quality.
Feels very solid and build quality is good. All accessories included (wires and connector; instruction manual).
Set up was very easy, and adjusting sound settings on PS3 were straight forward, the instruction manual is very clear. You can hear your own voice while adjustments are done and the microphone quality sounds outstanding.
Headset feels very comfortable, you can adjust it to your needs. Ear pads are comfortable and surround easily your ears without creating any pressure (I've got small ears anyway). The microphone is adjustable as well and it's very flexible.
Sound quality in game is very good, you can distinguish all sort of different sounds and it's very clear (glass breaking; footsteps; machine gun feels proper 'heavy'). Sound volume are easily adjustable on connector, which is in hand, for both game and chat.
Still playing around with it, with different games. I did find out some games allow in their options to adjust sound settings (headphone surround) which increases a bit the overall experience (black ops). Besides this, I'm still trying to find out a way to adjust in game bass levels, if that's possible.
Overall a great product. There are plenty of options out there, at higher prices, but this headset really has it's own way of showing off in the crowd.
Very happy with it and recommend it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Flawed but decent 29 Nov 2012
By Sam P.
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I'd like to be clear; I didn't buy this from Amazon.
Overall, this is a decent headset. I've owned a pair for about a year now.

- The sound quality is excellent. I've also been told that the microphone picks up clearly and loudly (I could speak from 3 meters away at normal volume, and it would trigger voice activation).
-They're quite comfortable for long periods of time. I should know, I'm a World of Warcraft raider.
-They look rather neat and unconventional.

-Whilst the headband is indeed lightweight, it is also not very sturdy. The strap on mine partially broke after a month or so (one of the bands broke free on one end). While it is still quite usable, it was somewhat uncomfortable to wear if not adjusted correctly.
-The paint on the side of the earphones is not durable at all. I have a habit of scratching lightly at the earphones, and straightaway I noticed paint coming off.
-The software can be quite finicky. I once had a period where the headset would not work due to random driver issues.

So in general, it's a decent headset and worth your consideration; just make sure you're not too rough with it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great headset 15 Mar 2012
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I bought this one instead of the more expensive gaming headsets hoping that I'd get some decent quality, and I did, they were absolutely brilliant, a great upgrade from my gioteck EX-01.

The sound quality was very good, although it's just stereo, not surround. The correct balance of treble, bass and mids, added to a rather comfy headband and earcups make it good for long games. It's also really comfortable while wearing glasses.

The microphone is also good quality, my friends immediately noticed a difference while voice chatting on the PS3.

The headset feels sturdy too, I have a denon headset which doesn't feel as tough, and was a bit higher-priced.

if anything, I should say that the headband, although providing great support and comfort, needs to be adjusted properly before gaming, if you have it tilted, the braces will end up hurting the top of your head.

I have a set of Turtle Beach Ear Force X11 aswell and would say over all these are more comfortable to wear over long play sessions, with soft, oversized fabric/foam earcups, the sound on the Gioteck set is I would say better.

These are a well made, great sounding and the mic works well to. A good buy.

They work great on x-box and PC i cant say as for PS3 as not tried, the only thing is you will need XBOX 360 HDMI AV CABLE+OPTICAL RCA ADAPTER so they work with your x-box, PC they are just plug and play.

5.0 out of 5 stars gioteck ex05 wired haedset 13 Dec 2011
By silks
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Brilliant!!, so realistic that i was looking for the grenades going off behind me!!
not only is this headset very comfortable but it actually improves the game play feeling by completely emersing you direct into the heart of the action on screen, purely because it feels so close and clear. i have tried many headsets but this by far is the best, even though its wired direct to my playstation, there is enough cable to reach anywhere as not to obstruct the gameplay. I have even started to use the headset when im watchin bluerays on my ps3 purely because the sound quality through them is so blindingly good!!

5.0 out of 5 stars My first headset, EX-05 Has set the bar high. 30 Dec 2011
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Firstly, I got these from GAME but you get the same headset, so I can't comment on delivery ect, I can talk about quality, ease of use so on.

Secondly, When I got these and tried them I was disappointed, On PC they sounded crap and on Xbox they didn't work.

However !
The PC problem was my USB was the slightly broken one, and the Xbox problem was my Tv, not the headset.

After a long wait, (and some swearing) I got it to work on my laptop, (proving it was the faulty USB) and using it perfectly on a different Tv for Xbox, and ever since I've loved using them :)

Why ?
-I can finally talk to others on xbl/PC and they can hear my voice, no white noise ect.

-I can play Xbox with the Tv sound off, and hear everything (and I mean, everything) through the headset alone, and thus replaced my 7.1 Surround-sound, yes ! They're that good.

My only complaint is the fittings, which is subjective to each and every person.
Because although you can adjust the height of the ear-cups, you can not do the same for the crown of your head, although after stretching them, they fit like a glove.

With these you can hear the enemy footsteps, and they're weapons reloading.

But they won't hear you.

Unless they have a pair too.
