Great sound ; Microphone Monitor lets you hear yourself talk ; Comfortable for long-term use ; Very long cable

In-line amp and control located too close to head ; No clip for in-line amp/controls

I got this headset about 2 months after I got my Xbox 360 for Christmas, and I have to say, they are very reliable and have good sound. They are pretty durable, but my only problems are with the cords. I got my cords tangled up too much and it started...

Mostly use it for gaming but listening to music is even better; this X12 headset is a great improvement over the X11 with more highs and lows and an adjustable bass that takes the sound in the game and really makes it lifelike....
