    Xbox 360 Headset Recommendation

    Our Xbox 360 headset has just decided to die (in the middle of a MW2 fragfest......sheesh) so am on the lookout for a replacement.

    Official ones seem to cost around the £15 mark but I was wondering if anyone had any experience of the 3rd party ones for around the same price (may even push it to £20 if it's exceptionally good).

    Any recommendations?

    Thanks.

    The sound quality isn't as good as the official wired headset but they last a lot longer.

    I take it these are 'old' xbox headsets that you need an adapter for?

    Correct

    You don't need the adapter. It helps eg some control but you dont have to have it.

    I was still using my original Xbox headset a few months ago. But it finally died

    get a wireless

    I have had numerous headsets, the official XBOX 360 Grey one is the best, Wireless die with batteries and stuff.. CBA with that.. If not go for the big Xforce ones thata re 40 quid

    i get a good 10 hours out of my wireless, easy to plug it in when you turn the console off as usb works with the xbox off.

    I have a couple or original xbox grey ones somewhere, unused, and never likely to be used, as I dont use nor ever will use Live.

    If you want I can see If I can dig one out and you could have it for cost of P&P.

    I've got a spare 360 wired one you can have for 5iver+postage, say £6?

    :-D

    Will I need to buy an adapter for it or is it just 'plug n play'?

    Havent a clue, its still in its packaging as it came out of the box, only time I use a headset is for Skype. I tied Xbox live once, and havent been back since.

    Perhaps someone more knowledgeable could advise if this works without an adapter, if it does and ya still want it, and I can find it in the garage, pm me your details and I will send it off.

    Thanks for all the help.
