Which is the WIRELESS HEADSET to have these days?

Hey Everyone,

Had my TB X41s since release and they have been brilliant, but I'm tired of buying new chat leads for them every year, and I don't like that they have a wire there anyway to be honest...

When I bought wireless, I thought that they would be totally wireless... Hey Ho... There ya go...

Anyway I was wondering if anyone who has tried different types of WIRELESS (no chat lead) HEADSETS out, could give me some pointers on which ones to go for?

Thanks for any advice...

Most headsets even though wireless for all the game sounds require to be plugged into the controller in order for the mic to work. I assume that's what Outrageous is referring to. You also hear other players talking much better if plugged in to your controller, at least in the case of my X41s.

I am very tempted by Astros Outrageous, but haven't made the jump yet, so can't recommend them.

The chat lead is the wire which goes from your controller to your headset... Not needed for game audio, but needed if you want to use your mic...

Pain in the bum, which is why I want to go 100% wireless now...

I upgraded from the TB X41's to the TB PX5's,although the PX5's came supplied with the chat cable i purchased the bluetooth XBA adapter which gave me the freedom of having no cables at all,only downside though is the chat through the bluetooth is not as good quality as using the cable.

How are those PX5s compared to the 41s, and is the Bluetooth usable?

Might just buy the bluetooth kit for my X41s...

if you like your TB X41's you will love the PX5's,sound quality is very similar as they are both full dolby digital but the PX5's have a few more options too,they have 8 standard presets which are programmable to your liking,maybe you want more bass?or hear footsteps more clearly?you can also download mic presets so you can make your voice sound like a chipmunk or whatever you prefer,great for making friends laugh lol.Also the headset is totally compatible with the ps3 which is great if like me you want just one headset for both consoles.

The XBA adaptor will only work with a bluetooth headset and is usable,my friends said they could not hear me as clear but i did improve it a little with a downloaded preset which made my voice louder,plus side if you want the PX5's they are quite reasonable in price now as they have been out a while,hope this helps you

I bought a set of TB X32($100 @ Best Buy) after trying my roommates. I am sold on using them now. Only had them a month or so, so I can't speak on the durability of the chat lead.  You can unplug the wire from the headset to the controller if you don't want to chat and still hear the game play. Worth the money to me
