With an in-line amplifier and separate connectors for mic and line signals, the X11 also makes a great PC gaming headset.

That means you’ll react faster and take them out before they take you
out, giving you a competitive edge that can make the difference between winning and losing. You’ll also enjoy unsurpassed comfort during extended game play thanks to the large, deep-cushioned ear cups and rugged, lightweight design.

In-Line Stereo Amplifier
The X11 includes a powerful in-line amplifier unit with built-in volume controls to adjust the game audio and incoming chat levels. The amplifier uses DC-coupled technology for a wide frequency response, low distortion and deep, clear bass. A built-in mute switch lets you turn off the headphone mic when you don’t want to be heard.
The X11 amplifier incorporates a built-in Bass Boost feature that produces deep, rich bass tones by increasing the volume of low frequency sounds – just like turning up the volume on the sub-woofer on your home theater system. Bass Boost improves your gaming experience by kicking-up the sound level of explosions, gun shots and other deep-bass sound effects, making them even more dramatic.
It's hard to hear yourself speak when a headset is covering your ears, which causes you to talk louder than normal. The X11 corrects this annoyance with its Microphone Monitoring feature. Just like a telephone, the X11 adds a portion of the microphone signal into the headset signal, so you can hear some of your voice along with incoming chat and game audio. It’s just enough so you can easily sense what you're saying, but not so much that it's distracting. Microphone Monitoring not only keeps you from talking too loud, it also eliminates that annoying "clogged ears" feeling when talking while the headset is covering your ears.
Independent Chat/Game Volumes
Conventional communicator headsets compromise your gaming experience by covering one ear for hearing chat audio and leaving the other ear for hearing game audio pumping from speakers. The X11 overcomes this problem by combining stereo game audio with online chat in a high fidelity stereo headset, so you’ll get a better gaming experience with privacy and clarity. Separate volume controls on the amplifier let you adjust the game and chat levels, so you can easily balance them and never have to worry about missing a cue from your teammates.
Works with PC and Mac
The X11 can also be used to enjoy games, movies, music, or VoIP chat on your PC or Mac. All of the on-board features that make the X11 a great XBOX® headset also work on these other platforms. The cable includes separate 3.5mm plugs for the game audio and microphone signals which easily connect to your PC/Mac sound card.
Powered By USB
The headset amplifier is powered by a single USB port on your XBOX, or from a nearby PC/laptop or Mac - so there is no need to fuss with a separate AC power adapter or batteries.
