5 Upgradedyorkshire40 | 25/04/2010 | See all yorkshire40's reviews (5)I bought these to upgrade from the X1 and i have not been disappointed,these headphones are superb!!.The sound quality is excellcent,the headphones are light and very comfortable.The major fact for me was the absence of the "cables" that came with the X1,wireless is superb!!.The fact that 2 pencil batteries are needed is a minor concern but for sound,convenicence and just sheer quality these i highly recommend!!.Best thing is if you have the chat pad for your controller you can connect your headphones to it,where you could not with the X1s.They are simple to set up and are a total joy to have.Whats all so impressive for me it that you can connect them to a PS3 as well as a XBOX and you get fantastic sound quality,all though the mircophone seems "not to respond",but if you just to game on your own they are brilliant:).If you can strech to the price which is very reasonable for a great piece of kit,get them do not bother with the X1 and just get these!! sheer excellcence in design and thought,for XBOX/PS3 gaming these are superb!!.For the battries just get 2 rechargable pencil batteries,they last about 25 hours,brilliant!! brilliant!! brilliant!!.On-line chat as well is supeb!! you will find its other players have the problem now who still use the old mircosoft headset.I bought mine through PLAY.com and received them within 2 days,set them up in 2 mins and was away!!.Thank you Turtle beach for giving us gamers something acutally worth paying for!! money very well spent!!.Also they feel and look "quality" and "sturdy" rather than some that are cheap and flimsy.Go on treat yourself!!.
