Turtle Beach XO Seven, 19 May 2014
As the only current premium headset for the Xbox One, the XO Seven has quite a substantial price. However, for the quality of both the product and the packaging it comes encased in, I would say it's a definite buy. The memory foam encircled in the light leatherette is so comfortable I forget I have them on my head sometimes after long play sessions. The wire is also not of a rubber texture and is actually one of fabric. I've found that because of this, they never tangle--as that can be infinitely irritating to deal with. The flexible mic stem and mic filter are detachable and incredibly easy to work with. The packaging, I'd like to mention again, is something that you'd definitely keep them safe and dust-free in. With a magnetic seal on the box and a felt opening tag, you're dishing out the extra cash for build quality and certainty--as opposed to the XO Four headset, with which I've also had a chance to play around. This headset comes with a proprietary Xbox One controller connector which has chat/game mixers, a mute button and overall volume control buttons. Game sound quality is superbly crisp. Compatible with smartphones and computers for music and video et cetera. You can blast 'em or keep the gunfire and frag explosions moderate. Up to you! Standard delivery was three days from England to Ireland. Five stars for my first great experience in enhanced gaming audio!
