Pretty damn nice
on October 17, 2011
I just got this today, so understand that before reading the rest of the review. I have already set up the bluetooth for my phone, and have used this as a standard online headset. There is a switch which allows you to swap back and forth, which comes in real handy when you're in the middle of a battle, and you get a call from your invisible girlfriend. To set it up with your Xbox, there is the standard wireless connection button you would find on all wireless controllers, and the boot up sounds rock. There is no mandatory USB connection to make this work, despite reviews I found on other websites. There is a docking station to charge it, but it's not mandatory, as the headset itself plugs right into MOST cell phone chargers. The appearance of it is quite nice, and will go well with the Limited Edition 360 coming out Nov. 8th. You also receive a free Avatar item with the purchase. The code for both Male and Female white t-shirts comes in the packaging.
The overall sound quality was fairly good, though it got a bit grainy while using it in Bluetooth mode. Nothing too severe, but it's there. The loop around the ear can be switched to fit either your left or your right ear, though I prefer the right side, because the MW3 logo is right-side-up. It also comes with 3 different rubber disks to try and fit your specific sized ear hole. I have a fairly small hole in the side of my head, so I actually removed the rubber piece completely, to accommodate. Overall, I like this one better than the Halo Reach wireless headset, which I paid a similar price for. The 2 main things that sell me on this is the Bluetooth, and the micro USB charging capabilities. I hope this helps out, if you have any questions, post them as a comment, and I will respond.
