Here’s a couple of tips to help you choose the best headset:
One of the first things to decide is whether your xbox headset needs to be universal or not. Universal means that your headset can be used with different hardware – so the Xbox 360, PS3 and on the PC. If you are someone who uses different platforms, then you might want to consider a universal headset, rather than investing in different headsets for each. Of course the different heasdsets will work with sound, however if you want to be able to use voice as well, which is so critical for online gaming, then it is worth investing in a universal headset. For example you might want to consider the Tritton AX Proor the Tritton AX 720.
As a general rule, the more you pay for your headset, the better the quality it will be, and so your enjoyment of playing games will be dramatically increased. However, another decision you might have to make when looking at the top end of the Xbox Headset market is whether you want true 5.1 surround or virtual 7.1 surround. For example the Tritton AX Pro gives you True 5.1 surround which gives incredible directional sound – perfect for hearing someone sneaking up on you on Halo Reach or Call of Duty. Whilst not giving you quite as good sound as a pair of high quality stereo headphones, the audio sound is still amazingly crisp and accurate – games sound truly alive.
In contrast you might choose to buy the Turtle Beach X41, which offers virtual 7.1 surround sound. The stereo headet, with large 50mm drivers create deep bass and amazing audio, which is instantly noticeable. When coupled with the dolby virtual surround gives impressive results. However, the directional accuracy is not as good as the true 5.1 Tritton AX Pro, however as a multimedia headset, the X41s are superb.
Ultimately the decision about which headset to buy for your xbox is a difficult one, it’s well worth getting your hands on a pair to check out yourselves – or have a look at some of the online reviews available.
