GameCon x40 Headphones

Paul D., B&H Photo
30 January 2012
  • Excerpt: These headphones are great. I've had them for 2 weeks and they work like a charm. They are very comfortable to wear and look cool too. They have a built in mic for chatting online that hides if you're not using it. The connection is a little bit of a pain if you don't leave it plugged in.
  • Pros: Comfortable, Great Sound, Stylish
  • Cons: Connection

a good buy, for the money

Fred S., Newegg
3 April 2011
  • Summary: I spent quite a bit of time, looking on-line for real reviews of this & didn't find many. One I DID find, reviewed this & the cordless, in one review. This did NOT mention the feedback problem, nor that the cordless has noise reduction ---while this doesn't.
  • Pros: 1. The sound is pretty good & the unit does what it says it will. 2. It's nice, to be able to control volume, of incoming chat. 3. Cheaper to buy this one, than one of the more expensive models +adapters for 360.
  • Cons: 1. My 360 datacable is 7-8 feet long ---powering this set with USB, means TV & 360 must be < 3 feet apart (no USB=no sound). And not using the controller cable, means I need line-of-site with the 360, to use the controller. 2. Lots of feedback, when using wired controller. 3. Headset seems very a...

Not Compatible with HDMI

Jamieson P., Newegg
30 January 2011
  • Summary: Do not waste your time with this headset. Other brands offer compatibility with HDMI. The lack of this very important feature makes this headset totally worthless. It is not compatible with anything other than an Xbox and if it can not provide sound from a correctly connected Xbox then why is it...
  • Pros: Newegg Delivery and service top notch as always.
  • Cons: As it says in the title it is not compatible with HDMI. I don't know about everyone else but I have not used a Standard analog sound and video out cable since the days of VHS. The USB plug on the headset only provides power not a connection the the Xbox system. Here is the response from Plantroni...

Petite deception !

manu19781, Amazon
16 August 2014
  • Summary: J'ai acheté ce casque 15euros et je ne m'attendais pas a quelques chose d'extraordinaire, pour le volume du son pendant le jeu c'est ok idem pour le son du Tchat mais le micro manque de sensibilité et donc quand on parle tout les debuts de phrase sont coupées. Sinon niveau qualité c'est tres bien !

KEIN USB-HEADSET!! Ansonsten Perfekt!

ghennen, Amazon
15 August 2014
  • Summary: Ich habe das Headset gekauft, wegen des USB-Anschlusses. Dies stellte sich jedoch als Fehlinterpretation heraus, dient das Usb-Kabel lediglich zur Stromversorgung des Headsets... Da ich aber im Audiobereich tätig bin, verfüge ich über die nötigen Käbel und Adapter, um die Cinch-Stecker an meinen Mac...
