1.0 out of 5 stars So NOT wireless!, 26 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Afterglow Universal Wireless Amplified Stereo Gaming Headset (PS3/Xbox 360/Wii/PC DVD) (Accessory)
I'm really disappointed with these headphones. Not only do they look ridiculous on my 11 year old son but they are not "wireless". The way that they get round this is by adding tonnes of wires and bits and bobs to the devices you are connecting to. For example: to connect to an XBOX that is connected to a TV by HDMI you need a cable from the XBOX to the audio channels of the television. However, if you THEN want to connect "wirelessly" to your PC or laptop you need to unplug the cable from your XBOX and from the back of your television and plug it into your PC/laptop. If you like hiding your wires behind the telly then this is just unworkable. So you end up using the cable to listen to your PC.

The headphones DO NOT HAVE BLUETOOTH so you can't use them wirelessly with your phone/ipod/mobile device. These headphones are way overpriced for the lack of features - why didn't they make them properly wireless? or include bluetooth?

The sound quality is good though but you can buy good quality wired headphones for less.

What you're after is a blue-tooth headset - one that will pair with multiple devices -however not being an xbox man I dont know if the latest xbox has bluetooth audio..prehaps somebody else can tell you that..

.. all these gaming headsets function in pretty much the same way.. install a dongle (the transmitter) - feed the dongle an audio signal (the wire from the dongle).. the connection from the dongle to the headset is then wireless - often worked be ways of an rf signal..
