xbox 360 headsets, help me

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hi guys,

If I'm in the wrong section could you please redirect me..anyhow lemme begin...
Looking for some help on finding a good headset for XBOX 360 gaming as well as equally movie watching.

So far I have tried:
  • TB X11's --kept em for a second cheap headset
  • TB X41's --wasn't very impressed with them having paid $210 total, so returned em
  • TB PX5's. I bought a pair for $255. While I was impressed by them merely in comparison to the X41's...I still don't feel like I'm getting the best bang for my buck so-to-speak. And I only have 27 days or so to return them to find a better headset.


So what I'm looking for to be more specific:
  • Surround sound
  • Best sound quality I can get, not only gaming but movies
  • Decent Bass
  • Decent Mic
  • Decent comfort level
  • Wireless would be a nice perk but not willing to merely sacrifice the above for it

Price range: $300 MAX

Please help me out guys, I'd really appreciate your experience and expertise!

For Xbox 360, ditch Turtle Beach all together and get some Logitech F540's, Steelseries 7XB, or look into Astro's if you want to spend $200+

Get the astro mixamp and turtle beach HPX. Thats by far one of the best combination you can have with the astro mixamp.

why so much hate on the TB's ? Ive had my x11 's for about a year i would guess and used for xbox back in the day and now for PC only, i think theyre absolutely great quality sound and ive stepped on them a thousand times and have never had them break or anything .
