atlas headset/X1 headsets

#1ALV9Posted 2/23/2014 11:55:44 PM
i wanna discuss which is the best headset to invest in for the X1... right now its good timing for the atlas headset to be out bcuz my turtle beach headset from 2008 is failing based on volume control... i read the atlas headset is able to adapt to the 360, PS3 & PS4 as well but its not completely wireless just wired between the controller to the headset... not wired to the console unlike the 360 TB headsets...i could use one headset for my consoles
theres a standard $99 x1 headset which seems generic but threre are several wireless x1 headsets for $160... no info if they can adapt to othr consoles to my understanding but i assume they use a usb port etc...

so whats your opinion on purchasing these headsets as described? which one would you suggest and why?

x1 doesnt use a usb for headsets it uses the adapter that attaches to the controller. as long as it has a 3.5mm jack it will work

Shouldn't have any issues using any of those headsets.

Buy the best pair you can afford. I personally just purchased the xp510's and love them.

Stay with turtle beach though and stay away from Astros. I will never consider an astro product again after what I went through.

I think so. I love my xp510's that I just purchased.

ive been using the X11 ear force since halo 3 was out and the audio exceeded my expectations but didnt like the cord attached to the 360, had to constantly watch out for it... thank goodness the next gen headsets are beyond that
