  better Than the Cheaper Headsets? Mine broke after 2 days!

| | See all RandomDude's reviews (2)

I have had many headsets in the past usually the cheaper version which have lasted around 2-3 months. I bought this in hope of better build quality. After 2 days of recieveing the item the mic no longer worked. In my experiance i would not advice this over the cheap ones and the build seems pretty simular.When working on the otherhand these offial headsets do have better quality sound as it is louder and quite clear.

Where do i begin? there's alot of bad reviews about this headset but unfortunatly its needed. i'm now buying my third since January as the other two broke within weeks of buying them. i was thinking of buying a wireless one but friends who have purchased one have steered me away due to having to buy batteries constantly. so in my view if your a casual gamer and not looking to spend lots of money buy one of these. if your hardcore and money is no worry buy the wireless one.

1) Light and Comfortable
2) Cheap!
3) Great sound Quality

  Decent product

This headset is great. Good sound quality, very light, not too expensive and quite a good build quality. Mine just died (just the speaker, the microphone still works) after 2.5 years of almost everyday use, which is quite good in my book (my iPhone headset died within 6 months). Must-have for online gaming anyway, so there's no way around buying one (or more than one) :)

  Break Easily

Very fragile and break easily if not careful. You'll probably get through 2 or 3 in a year.

Ive had mine since launch and its not broken yet! Great product light and easy to use! Also prefer the mics with the controls on the bottom of the controler rather than the one with it half way up the cable!

  breaks way too easy

People keep saying take better care of them, but no matter how well you look after them, theirs always one time you leave them out and they break.
I take care of everything i own very well
But im on my 3rd in a year now
My second one just stopped working for some reason, hadnt even stepped on it or anything, just so fragile

People keep saying that these break easy, they are fragile but just look after them and they'll be fine had mine for a few years now.

Sound is great and its light and comfy!

Its not fragile - some people cant look after it properly. I've had mine for 2 years now and it works perfectly. Also really comfy.

  What a con. A ticking timebomb.

I've had four of these headsets now. I treat them with coton woolled gloves. All four have broken and now I don't use them.

I have come to the conclusion that these official headsets are purposefully built to break. So much money is made from people buying their 2nd and 3rd plus heaset. Why would microsoft change this money making idea?

I would advise people to keep their receipt!

Advantages. Cheap. (for one unit)

The sound quality is good.

Makes other headsets look brilliant.
