Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Official Xbox One Stereo Headset (Xbox One) (Accessory)
First of all I was a bit apprehensive making this purchase. Should i get the turtle beach xo4/xo7? Maybe even the polk 4 or stretch to an astro a40. I read many reviews and watched videos online etc... Then finally made the decision to order these.
I honestly can't fault these for stereo sound & comfort. They are bass heavy (which I like) and the volume is ample. They are extremely comfortable, even when used on prolonged gaming sessions. For £48 you cant go wrong, considering they included the chat adaptor which is £20 when bought separately! The mic also tucks away nicely when not being used which is a neat feature for such a budget headset.
My one & only complaint is they look a bit squarish when on your head, a tad ridiculous if i'm being honest. At the end of day I didn't buy them to look 'cool' or 'trendy', just for gaming in my man cave!
Yes i'm sure other headsets offer true surround sound and look less ridiculous when being worn, however they come with a big premium and essentially do the same job. If you're looking for a gaming headset to enable you to hear enemy footsteps, talk to friends and be comfortable then these are for you.
