Basic entry gaming headset - there are cheaper options,
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I have had quite a few gaming headsets in my time including Turtle Beach (X11 which are wired headsets for PC/Xbox and X3 and XP400 which are wireless headsets), Plantronics (Plantronics X40 GameCom XBox 360 Corded Stereo Headset - White) being an avid PC and XBox gamer. I found this gaming headset very basic and actually preferred the Plantronics headset which is a little over half the price of this one. Although Sennheiser are well renowned for their headphones and the sound is good, I didn't find it too much different to my other headsets. Playing the Xbox quite regularly with my Turtle Beach headsets, I'm used to having game and chat volume at my fingertips but it seems that both of my PC gaming headsets seem to lack this as standard which I do miss. A quick search on Turtle Beach PC Headsets yielded the Z1 and Z11 which are both cheaper than these headsets and had an in-line volume/mute control. Personally I'd say that although this gaming headset was nice, there are cheaper headsets out there that are just as good (or even better) with better functionality designed for hardcore gamers.
