2.0 out of 5 stars It Functions Well, But it Still Needs Some Work December 10, 2006
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
The "earloop" design is a little unsettling at first, but with a little readjusting it will fit quite comfortably (for many people, anyway). It does happen to be twice the size of most Bluetooth headsets currently available, but since this is the first wireless headset for the Xbox 360, I'll give them a little bit of leeway. Also, the lightweight nature of its design somewhat negates this fact. The unit also has no problems connecting with a 360 controller either. The real fault actually comes from using the headset on Xbox Live. You won't really notice any difference hearing other people than if you are using the regular wired headset, but the microphone is just the way too sensitive. While hosting a number of games, I noticed every once in a while there was a player whose microphone would seem to pick up a constant string of background noises, if not, the player breathing himself. That players mic always seemed to be constantly sending feedback (or white noise), as if they were constantly rubbing up against the mike. I now learned that it was actually a byproduct of the Wireless Headset itself, not the fact that someone just had and "over-sensitive" mic. Now that I knew the problem was in fact the wireless headset itself, I found that the only thing you could do was to turn it OFF and then back ON again, which would alleviate the problem. Depending upon which game you're using at the time, this might happen to you at least once every two hours. Yet, on other games it might not happen at all.

It's nice and having a wireless headset, but if you like to play a lot of Xbox Live (20+ hours a week), you might just want to stay with the standard wired headset.

2.0 out of 5 stars Very Disappointing November 5, 2006
By Ron
Fun: 2.0 out of 5 stars   
After waiting months for this to arrive I was very disappointed with this product. The earloop took a little getting used to but over all it did fit comfortably. I was a bit surprised at the size of this thing, its twice the size of most bluetooth headsets out on the market. I had no problems hearing my friends on XBOX Live, they came in loud and clear. It was also very easy to link the headset to the XBOX 360. The real problem comes in with the sensitivity of the microphone. The mike would pick up every little sound in the room which became very distracting to the other players. It would also start broadcasting feedback to the other players for no apparent reason. Once it started doing this the only thing you could do to stop it is to turn it off and on again. After having to do this 5 or 6 times in one evening I decided it was time to bring it back. Hopefully Microsoft will resolve this issue in future releases, until then its not worth the money or frustration.

2.0 out of 5 stars Good for you.....but not your friends November 23, 2006
By Opcode
Fun: 2.0 out of 5 stars   
I picked up MS's new wireless headset a couple of days ago. I have to say I was very impressed with the unit. It is small, light, and all things considered, comfortable to wear. I hopped on Gears of War and it worked like a charm. I could hear everyone crystal clear.

*However*....during the game, a few people were complaining about racket. They said it sounded like someone's tv was too loud.....or perhaps a fan was going in the background. I came to discover in the lobby, that my in-game voice-active indicator (the little cartoon bubble that appears over your character when you speak) was ALWAYS on. That was a clear indication to me that it was *I* who was responsible for the racket.

Everyone yelled at me and said it was very distracting. I turned my TV all the way down, and my fan was off. It was *completely silent* in my room, but it was still happening. I ended up having to switch to my old headset to keep from annoying everyone.

On a side note - a friend of mine also bought one (before me) and I remember telling him the same thing ("turn your TV down..........turn your fan off..."). Even he said it wasn't loud, and the fan was off.

All in all, this headset is a big disappointment. The people with whom you play will be very irritated with you due to the constant "buzzing" sound coming from your mic. I have a feeling I'm going to be muting a lot more people now that this mic is available for retail purchase. I would stay away from this mic and wait for second generation...

1.0 out of 5 stars Do not buy this December 28, 2006
By J. Lau
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
In a glance, this looks like a nice product. It's nicely designed, although it might be a little uncomfortable at first. You have to pull your ear though the little loop. The sound comes out nice and clear. The charger is nice, and the little LEDs are nice. Finally, i can go to the bathroom without having the lug the controller.

HOWEVER, people in your game will complain getting feedback. It will sound like your voice is echoing to others. The worst part is, is that it will make everybody else's mic echo too.

Problems from not syncing to feedback has been reported EXTENSIVELY on the official XBOX forums.

4.0 out of 5 stars A positive review January 28, 2009
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
If you read most of the negative reviews look at the date. Most of them are from 2006. This is 2009. Yes there are a few from 2009. The thing about the headset is it does work, in fact it works very well. I read a lot or reviews who were stating that they could not get it to sync up and buzzing sounds and drop outs.

I can tell you this I do not have any of these issues. Keep in mind it runs on a 2.4 gzh wave the same as oh cordless phones, wireless routers, people maybe having problems with that. Me I have a wireless network and no home phone, just use cell and this headset works awesome.

The mute button works (silver button that just has to be pressed 1 time), I can hear every one and they can hear me. I know that in Left 4 Dead on the wired headset (which I just got my xbox for Christmas of 08) I had to some times have to have the mic litarly in my mouth for me to be heard or speak very loudly. Not the case here.

It picks up my voice. Also this is very light weight. You almost forget you have it on. It does have a tendency if it's not on your ear right you can feel it which is why I gave this 4 stars. I would have given it a 4 1/2. This is a 5 star headset. Do yourself a favor, I know it's as much as a game, but it's worth it.
