Plantronics GameCom X30

 

The Plantronics GameCom X30, the company's stylish follow-up to its Halo 2 Edition headset for Xbox Live, is an upgrade from the standard Xbox 360 headset and won't interfere with eyewear.

Offering a uniquely stylish design, the Plantronics GameCom X30 is lightweight, comfortable to wear, and eye-wear-friendly--plus, it sounds good

The Plantronics GameCom X30 isn't wireless, nor is it the loudest headset we've tested

Plantronics X30 Xbox 360 Headset Review

 

Innovative, stylish, and sleek. Functional? Our Review.

Plantronics' X30 Xbox / Xbox 360 headset is a rather nice product. The innovative form factor is indeed very comfortable, and will allow for far longer Xbox Live sessions than any competitor. While the sound cancellation technology may result in...

Plantronics GameCom X30 for Xbox 360

 

In the previous iteration of the Xbox, arguably the best headset made for online communication came from Plantronics. Released in conjunction with Halo 2, the Halo Communicator was highly sought after and widely regarded as combining a comfortable...

Excellent performance, Very comfortable, attractive design ;

None to speak of ;

If you are currently looking for a headset or own an official one and are looking to upgrade, check out the GameCom X30. The price is fairly high but once you have used it we are confident that you won't be disappointed

Plantronics GameCom X30

 

I've gone through many (3 so far) xbox live headsets from microsoft. i broke down and bought a Jabra Ear Boom headset built primarily for cell phones, and while the molded ear buds were initially comfortable, i found that over extended periods i would...

Comfort, Boom Mic (not in-line)

none, yet... durability might be an issue with the swivelling parts htough

Consumer review by:

Average overall with reasonable price onsale

 

I would not buy unless it's around $17. Everything is average for this product at this price range. Sometimes it does not sense your voice. You need to move the mic very close to your mouth. Once you able to fine the right position, it is solid. It's a...

Great for price

 

it might be a little uncomfortable at first, but once you get used to it you forget it's even there. I played for 8+ hours the other day with some friends and even after all that time it still felt comfortable. I haven't had any problem with other...

cheap, lightweight, small, decent sound, comfortable, still working just like new more than a year later

audio quality could be better, but it's good enough considering the price. Feels kind of flimsy but i haven't had any problems with durability

Go another route..

 

I've had this headset for at least 18 months now. The chat sound quality is great and from what I'm told the voice quality the mic broadcasts is great too. The mic boom spins so you can wear it in your left or right ear

This ear piece is a pain, literally. If you play for more than an hour or 2 at a time you have to take this out of your ear. It literally hurts. The earpiece is oval shaped but not in a such a way that it sits correctly in your ear. It's wide from...

Good for the price

 

A great option if your looking for a cheaper headset, just be ready for some initial uncomfortablility.

This device worked fine for me for just over 2 years before the mic finally gave out. I paid just under $20 for it at the time and I was quite satisfied. The earbud was a bit uncomfortable at first, and again when the rubber came off after my dog...

A bit annoying at first, takes some getting used to

Consumer review by:

No problems

 

I've had this for about 2 years now and easily the best fitting and best clarity of any

I've not had any problems with it. RE the other comments, it is lightweight so if you are moving, it the mic will move away from you, but it does have a shirt clip which is meant to prevent that. Any similar headset like you would find in a call center...
