5.0 out of 5 stars Nice, Modern Looking Headphones, 30 Oct. 2011
This review is from: Plantronics X40 GameCom XBox 360 Corded Stereo Headset - White (Accessory)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Presentation: Good, nice colour, very modern.

Installation: A lot of wires. You have a wire from the usb, a wire from the Audio (red/white) on the back of the xbox, a wire from the controller. I guess it's necessary.

Sound Quality: Very good indeed, although some distortion at high volume levels. They're not super high end pro audiophile sound quality by any means, but pleasant and much better than anything else you're going to get out of your tv's built in speakers or a rubbish mic headset. I'd be happy to use them for gaming, perhaps not my first choice for listening to music, but it wouldn't give me a headache. Bear in mind that the limiting factor in terms of sound quality is likely to be the xbox.

Comfort: I did find my head squashed a bit, the "internal force" is quite strong, but I think you would get used to it. I'm normally a "earbud" user. Certainly no major sharp bits poking into your head or any red marks when you take them off, which you can't grumble about really.

Summary: A decent pair of headphones if you do a lot of gaming at night or in private. Bear in mind that if you talk into the mic, you will be talking too loud, and you will look silly. :)
If you want to use these for music on your pc or similar, you will need an adaptor (3.5mm->2xRCA). You still need to plug the usb in, as that seems to power an amp inside the headphones.

Issues: One major issue, not sure what you're supposed to do if you use hdmi on your xbox, since you don't get the red/white composite sound output that way. So you wouldn't be able to use these earphones in that situation, as far as I can tell!
