I originally had the basic wired headset which comes with the xbox 360 premium console. Unfortunately this one was broken by my mum who hoovered up the wire causing it to rip out. I then bought a second one of these which broke of its own accord, and i was then rather fed up with the normal wired headset and opted to go for this new wireless headset, and thought it would be even cooler to get the halo edition one for only a small amount more!
It was quite a bit more expensive at £30 to the normal wired headset which is only £15, but i felt it would be a worthy investment and would survive longer than the previous ones.
It certainly has and i have now had this headset for about 6 months and have not had a single problem.
It is certain the perfect headset for both hardcore gamers and for just casual gamers.
Firstly, being not wired makes it far more practical as you can move more freely without being attached to the controller, and you can also walk away from the controller without suddenly having your head grabbed back by that really annoying wire.
It is also very small and compact and fits nicely on the ear and i have found it to be very comfortable, even when wearing it for a few hours. It even comes with two different sized ear holders - suitable for most ears! It is also hardly noticed and you look quite cool and even feel like you are some sort of soldier or something like that.
Of course a headset itself is necessary on xbox live in order to meet and talk with new or existing friends and to make teamwork a key part of certain games. You can even boast to other gamers about how well you did in the previous race or game, etc.
The headset also has useful features such as being able to adjust the volume or even to mute your voice so you can listen and not talk - which can sometimes be very amusing!
The headset itself comes with a wire to plug it into the xbox to be charged which will only take a few hours to get to full and it can last for ages it seems (i'd say about 8 hours). But there is no need to worry as it will give you a warning beep when it only has 30 minutes of life and then again at 10, etc. Of course the fact that it charges through the USB means there are no extra costs for batteries - so another benefit there then.
Another great feature which is very apparent is that this is actually a limited edition halo 3 headset. The actual headset and functions are exactly the same but it includes some really cool artwork on it and consequently looks so much better than the plain headset. It's great to show off to your friends and also fits really nicely with one of the two limited edition halo controllers - and I also own one of these!
The headset includes the special halo logo and includes the main halo colour scheme all over - no costs spared!
