"excellent"
5 stars"

i own the wireless headset and its great. no problems sync-ing with my controller or console whatsoever, excellent voice clarity and my friends can hear me loud and clear. I hear about people experiencing problems with static and connection drops etc but I've owned mine for two months and NEVER had a problem with it.

random piece of info, out of a full charge (3 hours or so) you get a solid 7 hours of play before the battery starts to get to 40% remaining!!

"NOT the ultimate Live! Accessory you think it will be..."
2 stars"

Now, I admit when I bought this, I was impressed with its quality, however people constantly complained that they could hardly hear me, or that I sounded very distant, secondly there is no “play and charge” feature, it is “play OR charge” which is a huuuuuge no no from my point of view… I want to carry on the carnage! Also thirdly: whilst at first, the battery life is excellent, even looked after and charged/discharged properly, the battery life diminishes noticeably with extended usage of the unit!

Frankly, you're far better off sourcing yourself a unit called the X25 from Plantronics (the people who make NASA's headsets… so yes, you might say they're good!) because it is far superior, and whilst it is not wireless, it is more comfortable (especially to a glasses wearer such as myself) and a LOT clearer, and I have never in the whole time I have been using it had any complaints from other users regards my microphone with this unit, which I got ALL the time with the wireless one!!

Why waste money on this wireless headset when, eventually; you will run into problems with it… the gripes I state at the start of this review are admittedly small, but for the price, I expect perfection! Which is not what I got from this unit at all, it's about as temperamental as a badly behaved 2 year old with ADD!

A quick side note; as an IT professional, I can categorically state that whatever router you are using (even if you are running your Live! System piggy backed through a PC rather than a router) you will not notice a difference in sound quality (as some people seem to believe), that is purely and simply to do with the connections on the Live! Servers to yourself, and possibly the Internet Provider you use. Cheap "no brand” Routers don't bode well for your life on Live! But they won't ruin your life either, if you can set them up properly, if you stick with Linksys or Netgear you should be fine!

"Not very good at all!"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

Owned mine for about one month and it went dead, it wouldn't recharge or turn on. This has happened to my previous wireless mic but at least I got to use that for six months. Voice quality is way better, thats why I am buying a new one. Plus I have broken two wired mics already :)

"Further to this argument -"
2 stars"

The staticy noises seem to depend on the router the user with the wireless headset is using. I have two wired headsets and both brought the same noise through, and other friends in the Gears of War lobby were complaining about the same noise. The difference in quality between the two headsets is huge. The wireless headset picks up a lot more unneeded noise whereas the wired one only seems to pick up your voice.

"I disagree"
5 stars"

I do not own this yet, but I must disagree with the poster who posted his review of it here. I have friends who own this and when they talk to me online, it sounds crystal clear. Maybe something is wrong with your specific headset, you should get it checked out.
