I've never used gaming headsets before but I'm looking to buy but don't know which, options are

Titanfall Earforce Atlas Gaming Headset

or

Turtle Beach Ear Force XO Seven Headset

I'm leaning towards the Titanfall ones as the Turtlebeach ones don't even have a release date yet, but which would you choose?

I'm grabbing the XO Fours because I'm cheap and they seem the same as seven minus the custom side plates and different ear cushions.

If I wasn't cheap I'd buy one of those Polk 4shot ones coming out.

Yeah only just spotted those ones, I don't mind paying a bit more though as those Titanfall ones look cool

Well I had pre-ordered the Titanfall ones then the next day the official Xbox ones were announced so I cancelled and got the official ones, 60 cheaper!

Not on your list, but I use the Astro A50's. They're ridiculously expensive, but worth every penny.

I don't care how "cool" a headset looks - you can't see them whilst they're on your head, and it's not like there are a bunch of other people in the room ogling you whilst you're playing - on the contrary, you're probably all by yourself.

Is the Atlas wireless? I'm only considering the XO7 at this point because it's wireless to the console. Wires ended with last gen for me.
