Plantronics GameCom X95 wireless Xbox 360 gaming headset review

Whilst at gadget show live the other week, I spoke to a company called Plantronics which all might know does put some pretty amazing audio equipment.

Whilst there they gave me the Plantronics GameCom X95 wireless gaming Xbox 360 headset, this is a high-quality advanced wireless gaming headset and features 40 mm speakers and a high-quality microphone.

I’ve been testing this headset now from about two weeks, during the testing I realised a few things that I like and dislike about this headset.

Some of the advantages of this headset are:

  • The headset uses a small transmitter rather than the Xbox 360’s built-in wireless audio system, which means you get full stereo sound rather than the Xbox 360’s built-in mono, this means the overall sound whilst using the headset is perfect.
  • The build quality of this headset is pretty strong and would probably withstand beating from any enthusiastic gamer.

Similar disadvantage of this headset are:

  • The headset is not completely wireless and the microphone still relies on the Xbox 360 is wireless controls headset input on the bottom of the control, this means you still have one cable hanging around, which could annoy a lot of people that feel wireless over wired is the better option.
  • Also during gameplay online a few people commented that they couldn’t clearly hear what I was saying, which meant I had to turn the microphone volume up to the maximum and keep it there during gameplay, this could be down to the way the microphone is connected to the control using the old connection style for could be down to people with game lag.

Overall this headset is a pretty good build quality and although the microphone has a few issues, I would still recommend that any online game are looking for a decent quality headset should definitely buy this for their Xbox 360.

Although if you are frustrated with wires and prefer to use a wireless headset, they also do sell wireless versions Plantronics website, so I really suggest looking there first before you make the final decision to buy this headset.

The full review of this headset will be available on the you Tube channel, displayed below this post.
