Pretty easy to set up all necessary cables are supplied along with a small power unit no bigger than a box of cigars.This has a kind of neon blue power light which is pretty cool.
They are extremely comfortable although maybe a tad on the heavy side,but as soon as you slip then on the weight goes unnoticed.
I put gears of war on last night and powered up my headset the sound is crytal clear using optic connection straight to my 360.
On the cord from the headphones is a small device which enables you to control left, right ,centre ,rear channel volume (1-10) and heres the clever bit. Also on the control is the vibration dial. Ive never experienced rumble headphones before and was quite surprised how effective it was.Really adding to whole game experience ,grenades sending faint shudders through your head whereas buildings collapsing and earth quakes making hair stand up on the back of your neck.
Overall Im really pleased with these, the microphone also works extremely well no more crackling and cut offs as I got with the MS headset.
So if you've got a PC a 360 a PS2 or are getting a PS3 you wont go far wrong with a set of these. Great surround sound which will go to a deafening level. Hear the footsteps of your enemies before they reach you.
The inclusion of a heaphone to plug into your xbox 360 is great and it all works perfectly with live. The only quible i have is that you can't really hear other people's voices in multiplayer because all of the sound effects drown out the voice.
Basically if you want 5.1 that isn't overly priced and v.good quality then get a pair of these and get ready to be blown away! Thank You Sharkoon!
and if your wondering were the hell the the toslink connection on your xbox is its a small black port on the back of the AV cable that connects it to your tv. after finding all this out the hard way all i got was a loud hissing noise from the headset, until after 20 mins and 4 glasses of wine I wiggled the connection in the back of the xbox and then KABOOM! these babies came online.
They are amazing, Im normally a pc gamer and have some speedlink medusa headphones, these pee all over them, the sound is crisp and clear the bass makes the side of your head vibrate. There are people that say you can't hear voices on xbox live unless you set the audio output on your xbox to stereo, not strictly true you can get a good balance on 5.1 it takes patience and some fiddling with the seperate volumes. the mic is very good but quite sensitive.
There are a lot of different switches for time delay on the control box and a lot of other crap I dont understand, but the upshot is although quite pricey, playing COD4 and Gears of War late at night I've nearly S**t my pants on a couple of occassions. Highly Recommended
if i play on live and want to hear someone speaking i have to have it on 1.1 sound as the front and rear speakers drown out the voice.
so playing online kill the experience but normal single player stuff is unbeatable with these babys.
I would recommend these to anybody and can ensure that they will be one of the best investments that you will ever make.
