Wireless... sort of. You still need to hook up a wire from headphone to controller for mic functions.
white matches 360.
headset/headphone works well.
Xtremely comfortable fitment.
Need to cross R w/ L as the other reviewers have said. Even the turtlebeach site says this.
The wireless distance isn't far. Anything that get in between sender to headset will cut off sound, such as a hand wave...etc.
Sender is bulky and is not a hide away unit.
Left ear is louder than right.
In Gears of War, my setting for the effects is down to 1, music off, and chat volume max. My chat gets drowned out by game effects still. For example when the train rolls by I completely can not hear my team chat...
After a few weeks my mic broke. Need to send in for RMA.
I've since reverted back to the oem headset.
Sound quality is on the high end of average. Extreme bass doesn't sound that great when cranked up, but at reasonable volumes, it is just fine.
If I had to do it over again, I would probably buy something else spending a little more if necessary. If you need wireless headphones that also allow you to talk on XBOX live, I don't know of a competing product that beats this.
Not so with Turtle Beach's 360 EarForce X2 headphones. While the overall sound quality is lower, you can hear other players very well. I much prefer these headphones over the higher-end Trittons.
If you need headphones to also listen to movies, TV, etc, get the Trittons. But if they will just be used for Xbox Live gameplay, get the Turtle Beach unit.
With either set, remember to adjust your personal settings, "Voice" to "play through headset and speakers."
Hope this helps!
I'm an avid gamer and overall I am pleased with this product as it is probably the best of it's kind on the market as of today (Dec '06)!
I had no problems setting this product up although I would suggest following the user guide b/c it is confusing otherwise.
The sound quality is good enough for the price. The base is pretty decent which I was surprised by. I can adjust the sound settings as needed (note: the manual touches on this specifically).
The headset is comfortable and light-weight.
I can even use the device to listen to MP3's or DVD's if I'm using my Xbox 360, which is cool. I haven't tried to use it for other applications but it should be able to work for other devices (the company lists PC as 1 of it's uses), you'll need standard RCA jacks or perhaps you could get some sort of converter kit if you only have a mini-jack input.
Works fine from 10 feet which is as far as I've tried it. You do have to be within sight distance to use the product, the signal will not recieve around obstructions although others may still be able to hear your Team Chat even if you can't hear them because the Team Chat goes through the 360 controller's wireless signal as opposed to the infrared signal that the headphone's use for In Game Audio.
The battery life is really good from my experience. I have used the product for about 10-12 hours total and have not had to replace the provided batteries. Even so, I plan to get some rechargable AAA's as batteries can get expensive after a while.
I didn't realize I would need to plug in a cord to my 360 controller but I guess that is not a huge biggy.Read more ›

It's great overall.
But don't use it for too long.
It heats up your ears.
This thing works great and is a must have for late night gamers. Great sound quality, long battery life, what more can I say.Published on March 15, 2008 by Stan C. Porch
Well when these worked they worked fine other than the fuzz you get if you block the path to the receiver. But after a few months things started breaking randomly on them. Read morePublished on March 2, 2008 by Jacob Lepine

These headphones are just okay. They work well I guess but are pretty cheaply made so I am always afraid that they will break. Read morePublished on October 30, 2007 by J. Allen

My first EarForce X2 didn't work-- the connection to the mic input on the controller is flimsy (they call it "lightweight" in the documentation). Read morePublished on October 19, 2007 by Matthew T. Franklin
