Great Headset !
on 22 September 2012
Before i bought this headset i was using turtle beach x11's which were wired, the wire became very tangly and the mic jack always pulled out so i decided to get a wireless headset.
the sound from the headset is really good although one of the equalizer settings is basically unusable because the bass is just so heavy the sound becomes distorted with certain game sounds.
the live mix feature is pretty handy, although i usually have a lot of friends in an xbox live party when I'm playing a game so i tend not to use this feature due to the game volume constantly get quieter then louder again, still a nice feature to have though
i was expecting the headset to be heavy because its wireless but it's surprisingly light AND doesn't have that cheapish feel to it so build quality is good!
the battery life is pretty good on this headset i use rechargeable AAA batteries and they last for about 20 hours of gameplay which i think is what SteelSeries said to expect from the headset
it has a nice design to it, it goes well with a black controller !
it has great noise reduction as well so you cant hear whats going on in the house :P
there are only 2 minor problems i have though
1. I'm used to turtle beach x11's and they have a feature which allows you to hear yourself speak whilst talking to you're friends, unfortunately this headset has not got this feature so it could take a while getting used to if you have used turtle beach previously, sometimes you find yourself shouting, but as i said it's not a major problem.
2. I think that most wireless headsets suffer from interference from other wireless signals, i'm not sure as this is the first wireless headset I've had but my internet modem and router are in the same room as my xbox and headset so i do get some interference now and again but it's only a little crackle nothing major.
I moved the router and the headset transmitter as far away from each other as i possibly could and i did help a little bit but if you are in a different room from you're router then you probably won't have problem with interference :)
All in All this headset is really good and i was quite lucky as well i bought this when it was £47 on amazon, now it's £99...BARGAIN
