The Xbox Wireless Headset is just $100, and it's something that we needed to see what you get for that price point from Microsoft itself.

Can it pair to the Xbox and Laptop/PC at the same time?

Is there any way to disable the Xbox from turning on whenever you turn on the headphones? Sometimes I just want to use these through my PC without having the Xbox on.

Nice gadget, but horrible headphones. Positioning is terrible and its totally garbage for music listening. I like features like double connection and interface for setting sound level separately for team and game, but I just refund it for sound and discomfort in using on my head.. Nice try Microsoft, lets go for one more lap please

It’s honestly a fake review. I’ve purchased this headset and I’ve gone back to my old wired one. It’s just the mute on/ mute off feature. What he is saying isn’t true so he is probably getting paid of by Microsoft . Whilst listing to this video I put my headset on still can hear the video...

I like the look of some of those shoes, but $135-155? Idk bro. That’s like 28-31 bjs downtown worth of sneaker. Normally I only like spending 9-12 bjs on a shoe. Tell them to cut their 99000% mark up down to like 200% and I’d buy a pair and give you a tip in equal value to what you’d receive for me buying them

I'm having issues with audio constantly popping on this headset when using it with the Xbox USB adapter on my windows 10 PC. I am also having issues with the Bluetooth cutting out when listing to audio with this head set on my iPhone (I know my iPhone bluetooth is working fine, tested it with 8 other speakers/headsets). I RMA'd my first pair, and the replacement pair is doing the same thing; any thoughts?

The bass issue is in Forza not the headphones, I’ve tried multiple sound bars with subs and anything above idle has basically zero bass
utubeballbag 21 giorno fa
The main reason I want this is because of the Dolby Atmos integration which he didn't mention.
RaptorSixOne 21 giorno fa
You can use Dolby Atmos with the TB Ear Force Stealth 600 Gen 2, also $99 (I have). Just have to pay a few bucks for the Dolby download, while these give you a 6 month free trial.

It’d be nice if the offered a more expensive model with upgraded drivers and a better mic. They could probably make something fairly decent for another $20, and amazing for another $50. Ahh well, it’s a nice product for the price point, and I suppose if you’ve gotta buy several for all the gamers in your house, then it’s a pretty sweet deal.

Why don't you auction off the xbox controller for charity--like there's even a charity that focuses specifically on giving gaming stuff to kids in hospitals which might be a good choice. Or maybe something related to the environment?
