Despite a few detractors, I give this product 4.5 stars. If you are an Xbox owner and need headphones, the Tritton Warhead 7.1 Dolby Wireless Surround Headset, are THE premium headphones to get. They are officially Microsoft Licensed for Xbox. They include everything you need to hook them up, cables etc, including two long lasting lithium batteries with in stand charger. The sound is fantastic, the surround features and in game chat are flawlessly implemented. They are comfortable to wear, are truly wireless, and incredibly easy to set up and use. If money is no object, you are a heavy Xbox user and need headphones, then I would wholeheartedly recommend the Tritton Warhead 7.1 Dolby Wireless Surround Headset to you.
My beloved mother sent me several hundred dollars for Christmas; I called to thank her, and during the conversation she insisted I not use the money she sent for bills or something practical, that her gift was to be considered, "Mad Money", and I should treat myself and get whatever fanciful and ridiculous thing I wanted.
I have wanted a pair of nice gaming headphones for a long time, but I could never justify the high cost. Now with my "Mad Money" I could afford them, but which ones to buy, there are so many.
So I did a considerable amount of research comparing the pros and cons of the myriad of high end gaming headphones, e.g. Amazon and YouTube user reviews, Professional Gaming and Electronics webzine reviews etc. After all my research I narrowed it down to the Astro A50s, the Turtle Beach XP500, and the Tritton Warhead.
I chose the Tritton Warhead for the following reasons:
1) I primarily game on the XBox, I don't game on my laptop, and don't own a PS3.
2) They are the only wireless officially Microsoft Licensed for Xbox headphones and as such have superior technical implementation of chat features and on screen Xbox battery power monitoring.
3) Easiest to setup and use, it is not fiddly at all, you sync and go.
4) Generally outstanding reviews from ordinary users and professional reviewers.
I won't go into a lot of detail, but I was very impressed when I unboxed the unit. It was obvious somebody put a lot of thought into this product. To begin with all of the components were firmly tied in place and protected against damage during shipping. Everything needed to get started was included, cables, clear concise Quick Start and User guides, two lithium ion batteries with different colored logos so you could tell the two apart. Using the quick Start Guide, everything went together quickly and easily, ready in 15 minutes, except for the charging which took the obligatory 8 hours.
While they are a tad heavy and you are aware you are wearing headphones, I found them to be quite comfortable on my head. I was worried the faux leather would make my ears sweat and feel sticky, but it was not an issue, even after I played several marathon gaming sessions; they never got too hot or sweaty.
Overall Sound Quality:
I am certainly not an audiophile, but they sounded super to me. The ear padding blocks outside noise well. The surround sound was better than my home theater surround sound. It was so uncanny that I found myself double checking to ensure I had actually attached the head phones. There are three presets which you can quickly select using a button on the headset. Each preset is supposed to be optimized for various functions:
The sound is excellent overall for gaming. The in game surround sound is implemented very well; I can very clearly hear where opponents are in the gamescape. Voice chat was clear and crisp, but when Selectable Voice Monitoring (SVM enables you to hear your voice through the speakers) is enabled and you have not adjusted your headphone and Xbox chat volume settings, you can hear every annoying background noise, like your own breathing or the girlfriend watching TV; Tritton really should have implemented an in hardware noise canceling solution. However, they did include an instruction sheet explaining how to adjust the headphone and Xbox chat volume settings to eliminate the "hot mic" issue.
I am not a big music listener, but these sounded good to me.
I watched several Amazon Prime HD Dolby movies with my head phones and the movies sounded great, as good, if not better than my home theatre system.
Nothing is perfect and I have encountered a few minor glitches. For example: a couple of times I lost sound for seemingly no reason using the hardware Mute function on the headphones. To get the sound back I had to power cycle the Tritton base station. I still have not narrowed the root cause of this issue down.
One glaring hardware omission is the lack of an Optical Out port, both the Turtle Beach XP500 and Astro A50 have an Optical Out port allowing you to port Optical Audio to your speakers, for when you want to watch a movie with the spouse.

2nd I'm 48, wear bifocals and am slow with my reflexes now. Some game maps I do good, others I stink.
I got these today. So easy to plug up and set up. Pretty idiot proof. I had to try them out.
So far I grasp what all the gamers are talking about. These are only stereo but you can hear footsteps. So far I can tell a difference and it helps my game play. Super scores, nah not in my cards. Up-ing my scores oh hell yeah. It gives me an ever slight advantage. Slight is the operative word with me.
Now I'm getting used to them and trusting what I hear. I've got wasted a few times so far when I could hear em coming up behind me. Granted these aren't the super surround sound but I can sometimes tell what direction the steps and shots are coming from.
So far no hiss I've read about. In between matches it's just clear sound. No other wifi stuff is interfering.
The only bad I have is they are (so far) tight on my head. I have a small head and ears. The things fit good on my small ears. For people with big ears I don't know how they'd feel. The volume adjustment is easy, so far the chat adjustment I'm not sure about. I can hear people talking, it's not overly loud or to quiet. I haven't used the mic yet to talk. Will do an update after I've had em a week or so.
Right now I'm happy.
Update 2 1/2 days later.
The ears cups definitely are to small. As I said I have small ears, and they bug me. I can't leave em on for extended periods. I have to take em off every few minutes and readjust em on my head. Sometimes I'll get em in just the right spot and it's ok for awhile.
Sound is still great. No hiss or interference. The stereo sound is great, I turn my guy and you can hear stuff moving to the other ear.
Gotta knock the rating down on account of the ear cup fit. If they'd enlarge the cups these things would be great.
