My main concern was the earpiece, however. If this headset had an earpiece that I couldn't hear out of, then it's practically useless. I'm hard of hearing, and not being able to communicate with whom I'm playing with - especially in games that require communication to be effective - is worthy of fury that could bury the Statue of Liberty in fiery feces.
This headset has not failed to disappoint me much. It surpassed my expectations because for the price, I was betting this thing would break within a day or two of getting it. And so without further ado:
-The microphone doesn't just pick up what I say clearly by enunciating every vowel while sipping tea and crumpets with Madame LeFlour, it catches every single half-thought curse that I slur under my breath without coming close to eating the microphone like I had to with the shoddy keypad combo. I was able to play several games without having to raise my voice, even whispering. The only "negative" side of this was when people entered the same room and spoke, my friend could hear them as well, but it didn't seem to be a problem. I heard no complaints of things being too noisy, and there doesn't seem to be any feedback when listening to replays of my voice messages.
-The other microphones that were suggested to me cost $25 and over, not including shipping. This one was relatively cheap, yet it maintains it's durable nature.
-I can actually hear what other person said. It's easy to hear every word my friends said during the course of the last week, in both in-game chat and party chat, without griping about volume.
-It doesn't feel like the metal wire that consists of the.. uh.. Arm of the microphone (from the earpiece to the receiver) is made out of toothpaste and Elmer's glue. I feel like I can bend this forward and backward without worrying it can fall apart at any moment.
-The earpiece makes my ear sore after a while, but honestly, I was playing for like.. 2 in the afternoon to 3 in the morning, so that's after 12 hours of gameplay without taking it off.
-The piece that plugs into the controller is shaped so it can't go in with a keypad already connected to the controller. It isn't really a big deal, though, because I have a goddamn microphone that lets me call people "asperger-galavanting assclowns" instead of having to type out every methodical, punctuated insult with an itty bitty keyboard.
I really like this headset, and not only did I recommend this to a friend that has trouble with his microphone but I might end up buying it for him in the future. Also, my package came two days early, which is awesome. Super awesome.
It has a nice, soft earpiece that covers the whole ear, and a long boom that adjusts to fit either ear. It has the old school style jack, which has the volume and mute at the plugin at the controller (that is the only downfall I have come across, since I like to have the chat pad attached and I am unable to do so with this style). Everyone I talk to says I sound MUCH clearer than I used to, and other people sounds clearer as well. I do have to keep the boom a little further away from my mic, for it picks up sound a little better than I am used to.
All in all, I am super excited to have found a suitable headset for such an affordable price. If it does break on me, it is cheap enough that I will just buy another one to replace it. I already bought another one for our other Xbox. I'm sold!
- if I experience any problems, I will update this review.
UPDATE: After a few hours of use, the boom became loose and wouldn't stay up and would spin around. I just put a dab of super glue and worked it in, and it is fine.
