4.0 out of 5 stars Bad sizing options but overall a decent set January 21, 2006
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
If you're playing on XBox Live, you really need a headset. Most games involve voice coordination between people on the same team, and sometimes even discussions with your opponents.

I'm not sure why my experience was so different than the previous reviews. Maybe they got an older version of the headset? It definitely seems to be the same unit - made by Microsoft, for the XBox 360, the basic model.

This headset is relatively inexpensive, and has a padded earphone and microphone. The earphone is adjustable, to have the headband part expand and contract. This lets it fit on larger and smaller heads. The microphone rotates, so that the unit can be worn on the left or right side. It only spins down to just under a 90 degree angle, though, so this forces you to wear the headset with the band right over the top of your head. At that spot, the microphone is pretty much right in front of my mouth (I prefer it a bit lower) and the opposite-side "bracer" part is digging into the skin just over my non-earphoned ear.

I don't know what it is with these headset creators - but at its smallest setting, the unit is still too large for several adults I know. That makes it even worse for teens and kids! That being said, I find this problem with a lot of headsets, so it's something you just have to deal with.

There's a relatively long cord, and it plugs right into the base of your controller. It doesn't interfere at all with wireless controllers. The base part has a mute button as well as a volume control.

I didn't have any problem at all hearing other players when I was online - their voices came through very clearly. Also, the unit fit very snugly into the base - I didn't have any problems with static or dropped signals.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not really worth your $20. March 14, 2007
By Mahalie
Fun: 2.0 out of 5 stars   
I had one because my Xbox 360 came with one. It worked for a while, but considering how well I take care of my things, I didn't expect it to suddenly stop working. It's cheap and not very comfortable. I preferred the original Xbox headset that went around the back of the head. I also never had a problem with that one. It lasted as long as I needed it to. I would suggest using this until it breaks, and it will, then move on to something else. Perhaps the wireless headset. You can't really play online without some sort of headset.

1.0 out of 5 stars Good headset, until it has an early death December 20, 2006
By Javier
Fun: 2.0 out of 5 stars   
I liked this headset that came included in the pro xbox360, though I'm not a big fan of the headset wrapping around the top of your head like traditional headsets, I would have liked it to wrap around the back of your head like the original headset for the original xbox. The headset was good to decent quality in terms of the way it is built but seems a bit to plasticey and not of superior quality but its good enough, it has a good microphone and a good loud speaker and comes with volume control and a mute switch. Its a good headset for general use and decent if you compare it to better ones made by plantronics, but the sad part about this product is that it had an early death. The microphone dies after a while making the entire headset useless, even with good care it died. After a about a month or two the microphone first starts making a lot static on the other gamers recieving end and then the microphone just doesnt pick up any sound at all. I take good care of my headsets, I still own 2 of the original xbox headset (which are years old) and have a halo 2 headset and all work perfectly. I also have seen this headset have the same failures to many other fellow xbox live friends and all have had to revert to other headsets.

1.0 out of 5 stars Give some serious thought to getting a better headset. November 11, 2009
Fun: 1.0 out of 5 stars   
The headset that came with my xbox was wired and lasted a while before crapping out. When it did die, the mic simply stopped working though I could still hear. I went out and bought the 17 dollar wired headset as a replacement as the wireless ones are ridiculously expensive. I'd had the replacement headset for a month when it started crapping out too. I don't understand the design change as the plug into the controller is much less secure. Now the function of the headset comes and goes. I have to jiggle the wire where it connects to the controller to get the mic to work though I can usually hear everyone.

I'm guessing microsoft just cut lots of corners in making these as a headset should last at least a year. Everyone I play with has had similar problems. I'm suffering through jiggling the headset as opposed to wasting another 20 bucks on one thats just going to do the same thing. I'm not quite ready to put the 60 bucks down on the wireless version. Then to have to have one more thing with batteries that will die in the middle of a battle.

Also, the volume on this headset is horrid. I can barely hear people with it on max volume. Overall a much worse product than the original headset that I assume is no longer available. Its a really basic piece of hardware and essential to the Live experience. Why can't they do it properly?

5.0 out of 5 stars Official Microsoft Xbox 360 Headset August 29, 2010
By NeO JD
Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
What can I say, it's the normal Xbox 360 headset that you get when you buy your 360 (If you buy it with LIVE of course). I was hoping for the original model where the mute switch is on the bottom and that's what I got. My first mic lasted me 4 years and I'm hoping this one will work for just as long.
