Work as advertised

Ekim, Amazon
13 August 2013
  • Summary: Kind of a chintzy set, but what can you expect for the price? If you need a cheap headset that just work this is the one for you. Don't get the offbrand crap, it won't last nearly as long and will be even chintizier.

Works well but really hurts my ears

Gregory C., Newegg
14 October 2011
  • Summary: Not intended to be worn by people who wear glasses. I would go with the new Bluetooth Wireless headset from Microsoft coming out Fall 2011.
  • Pros: The actual usage of the headset is great. I can hear and told I'm heard clearly. The charge lasts quite long.
  • Cons: The headset really hurts my ears after wearing it for 5-10 minutes. Perhaps it's the fact that I wear glasses, which the design was not intended for.

2.5-Year Follow Up

Anonymous, Newegg
13 June 2010
  • Summary: Solid option for using on Windows or an Xbox 360. Just be aware that after long-term usage you can expect to have moments where the audio is dropped for a second or two. The older it gets the more frequently you'll experience this.
  • Pros: -Works well on the Xbox 360 and in Windows (assuming you have the wireless adapter from Microsoft) -Comfortable -Charges quickly over USB -Decent audio quality both ways
  • Cons: -No simple way to replace the battery -Audio cuts out on occasion after about a year and a half of almost daily use -When the audio momentarily cuts out on Windows, whoever is listening to you will be greeted with a very loud and unpleasant buzzing noise which may test your friendship with the ot...

OK, but should get something else

Thuy T., Newegg
10 February 2010
  • Summary: This is the headset that comes with the Elite, and it's overall OK. However, its not very durable. If you send it in to microsoft, it takes about a month or two to get back, plus you have to send it yourself with your own box+packing material.
  • Pros: Cheap By Microsoft Portable Protected wires
  • Cons: Feels cheap Very fragile Warranty isn't the best

  • Summary: Was a bit uncomfortable at first but you eventually get used to it.
  • Pros: Great Sound Quality, Wireless, Holds Charge well
  • Cons: Cuts out every once and a while. A couple times a night it seems to disconnect then reconnect. Get interference from other devices. I haven't pinpointed what is causing issues but some nights I just can't use it because of the static.

Good Till It Breaks

Anonymous, Newegg
23 October 2008
  • Summary: If you have the money get the wireless one if this breaks.
  • Pros: Great sound quality, gets the work done and better than having no mic on Xbox Live.
  • Cons: It is a good mic, but Microsoft made it to fragile. This is the 5th one i have been through, and i don't have the money to pay for the wireless one. So when you buy this beware of it breaking, and try to take good care of it.

User Review

Timothy C., Newegg
24 September 2008
  • Summary: Found a quick fix... Take the earhoop off and use a headband to hold it to the ear. For me, it's still better than being tied to my controller.
  • Pros: Works just fine.
  • Cons: Ear hoops are for small and smaller ears.

Decent Product

Matthew W., Newegg
6 April 2008
  • Summary: Why, oh why, did they go to the expense of making a Halo 3 Edition headset but not a black one. I'll never understand why Microsoft went to the expense of making many colored remotes but paid no attention whatsoever to corresponding accessories in those colors.
  • Pros: Device works as advertised. This is rare in the gaming community.
  • Cons: Not very easy to setup. If you're very familiar with the xBox 360 it shouldn't pose a challenge but if you are new to it, you'll need the manual.

Good inexpensive alternative to buying off the shelf!

MintOreo, Amazon
22 March 2008
  • Summary: Item received isn't exactly the one pictured. I received a white headset, slightly different model without any packaging (wrapped in bubble wrap). The item works, so I am not complaining, its a great savings, because the ones in the store are more than double what I paid.
