That's what people who know anything about audio call "soundstage" RX700s have much wider soundstages than any Turtle Beaches.

They have much bigger budgets and more reason to spend more on them. Both of us are talking about a single headset, the X11. Nothing comparable to them for $60 for consoles besides maybe the cheapest Tritton, but they have shoddy quality still.
RX700. Don't know why I have to keep saying that.

To plug it into my TV? Sure as hell won't plug into my 360. And even if it could, how do you expect me to control game and mic volume?
What? You can use RCA-3.5mm and then plug your headphones in directly, or you can plug the 3.5mm male into a soundcard and output it to headphones. Xbox has game/voice volume sliders

Virtual surround is absolutely vital for console gaming if you want an edge.
Lol.
No, you're right, that's why every professional gamer uses virtual surround. Wait.

Part of audio quality is soundstage, or what you call "positioning". In music, it lets you separate instruments and vocals. In games, it helps you figure out where sound are coming from in a match. Again, research helps.

1. You clearly don't game on a console. Soundstage means next to nothing on consoles because you aren't able to emulate surround with software alone on consoles like you can on a PC. I've tried using my RX900's (As I've said I own 3 times now, don't know why I have to keep saying that.) for gaming on my 360 and it does not work nearly as well as my X11s.

Soundcard? How many times do I have to tell you this conversation is strictly consoles only. I can't exactly plug in an X-Fi here bud.

You think that's how it works automatically somehow on a console? Research does help. Experience helps a lot more. As I've said, I've used both the X11 and HARX900 for gaming on my 360. The X11 is considerably superior when it comes to positioning.

You're busy researching on the net hoping to find some answers, ive used both setups and speak from experience. Your point is obviously too biased.

You have absolutely no idea what you're talking about. What does software have to do with soundstage?
For the record, I have an Xbox 360 (since 2005) and a PS3. Before that, I had a PS2 and an Xbox. Before that, a PS1. Played Halo 2 and 3 semi-competitively.

For the third time, input sound into soundcard, output through headphones. Do I have to draw you a picture?

Make up whatever stories you want. Being an active member of the OC sound forums and Head-Fi teaches you a few things. I'm speaking from just as much experience as you are.

Alright lets get a little tally going.

$25 - soundcard
$15 - various adapters, vol control, rca, etc (and I'm being generous here)
$40 - headphones
$10 - clip-on mic

vs

$60 - X11

Not only is it cheaper... It's simpler, more convenient, and considerably less annoying to mess with...

WOAH, just cause you can surf a forum you're some type of audiophile now?

Experience will beat your internet searching any day.

Mhm. And the first setup sounds 100x better. If you wanna save $20 and get terrible skullcandy quality, go ahead. The soundcard isn't even required, and you can get all the adapters for $5 from radioshack.

Being an active member of Head-Fi for 2 years and having heard/bought various professional audio equipment over 5 years does make me an "audiophile", yes.

EDIT: I have more experience than you.. why do you keep bringing "experience" up?
