Plantranics the best


This headset is the best bang for the buck. I had to buy a new xbox headset every year. I have had this one 3 years no problem and works better the the original microsoft brand

Wrong Add


Make sure that you do research on it at other websites

None i couldn't use it

i was going through the headsets for computers, then i came across this, it looked nice and it didnt mention anything about Xbox, so i ordered it, whne it got to my house, it said it was for the Xbox and i couldn't use it for my PC

So i gave it to friend, and he's happy with it. however a couple of problems happened with him. 1) whenever his controller vibrates it makes the incredibly loud and anooying static noise that everyone in the chat channel can hear and 2) when it's not...

Microphone swings both ways, looks good, adjust and is semi-comfortible for Xbox use

aside for comfort, it sucks for xbox use. i have to speak just as loud as with the official xbox headset, which by itself is reason enough not to get it. infact I wanted a replacement for that reason

Really Good


My friends have told me that the new Xbox360 headset is much better than the original one, but I can't compare as I have never used that one.

These are way more durable then the original 360 headset. I throw them around, nothing happens, and the sound quality is better

PLANTRONICS Xbox 360 headset (over-the-head style)


Mute button and volume adjustment inline with headset cable, not flimsy or cheap feeling as the low price would suggest

The headset band which goes over the head is slightly oddly shaped, making it sit on the head a little strangely, but nothing which bothers me too much or gets in the way
