Plantronics GameCom X95

 

Decent sound

Poor range. Unreliable connection. Only works with Xbox 360 without additional cables. Batteries aren't rechargeable

The Plantronics GameCom X95 is an inexpensive wireless headset, but disappointing performance and Xbox 360-only compatibility without additional cables make it a poor choice for most gamers.

WORTH CONSIDERING

Plantronics GameCom X95 Wireless Xbox 360 Headset Review

 

Plantronics are a relatively new player in the gaming peripheral industry, especially when compared to the likes of SteelSeries, Razer and Logitech. They do however have plenty of experience with other types of audio products aimed at both corporate...

Reasonable Sound Quality ; Good Value For Money

No Integrated Battery ; Can't use Microphone with PC

KitGuru says:  The GameCom X95 offers good value for a wireless headset but we feel the X40 is a better overall purchase.

Good sound quality, poor mic

 

Over all if you dont plan on using the mic much this is a good headset. I rated it 3/5 cause of the top cushion comfort, and the mic issue.

The ear cushions are comfortable. The 40mm speakers get nice and loud. The sound quality is great, very clear and crisp

The Mic (when turned on) cuts in and out, you can see your mic turn on and off in games such as COD. Also some people in the lobby complained that my mic was making an awful noise. The cushion on the top of your head get uncomfortable after a while

I have used Turtle Beach & Tritton headsets for my XBOX 360. I bought this for my son to replace Turtle Beach X1 headset that broke, didn't expect much but these sound just as good as Turtle Beach X31 or maybe even better. The only drawback on these...

The audio is as impressive as my 5 channel PC. Also because I get the console audio my TV is turned down and preventing bleed over on the microphone.The design is nice as each side controls one function of the headset. The right side is the console...
