    I recently sold my packed in microsoft headset to help pay for MW2, so i was wondering if you guys could recommend me some replacement head sets wired or wireless (though, i'm sure wired would be the cheapest). I remember using the Microsoft one a couple years ago when i first got my 360 and i had a couple problems with people hearing me and the volume for hearing them was kinda low.

    USA, that big island near Cuba
    If I remember right, the first couple generations of headphones bundled with xboxes were pretty poor.
    Your best option for a replacement would be checking out a site like DX (they have several available, all for less than ten bucks) for a cheap solution or try a pure gaming website for a more quality, pricey option.
    If you really want to go ghetto, the port is just a 2.5mm jack so you could probably use an old cellphone headset [​IMG]

    wait, so i can use headsets that are specifically made for 360? Well, actually i want to use the headset more for party chat than for actually hearing games or anything.

    by the way, is it possible to use bluetooth? I think my mom has a wireless thing she uses for her cell phone. Maybe she will let me use it. Hope i can figure out how to work it.

    no, you can only use bluetooth headsets that are specially made for the xbox. you will not be able to use the cell phone one.

    You should buy the cheap-ass things from DX. Not those which cover your whole ears, you can't hear the game then.

    I don't mind not hearing the game, since i want the headsets mostly to just chat with friends on Xbox live.

    Also, i checked around Amazon and found this product: http://www.amazon.com/Xbox-360-Over-Ear-He...8713&sr=8-1


    It seems to have mostly good reviews and its really cheap. Any of you guys have this or know anything about it?

    Over there.
    I'm no expert on this or anything, but I use Turtle Beach X-somethings, the cheapest one. I want the wireless X-41s though, do I smell a Christmas present? [​IMG] But yea, Turtle Beach headphones are okay, and they cover your ears, and you can connect it to the TV so you can hear the game too.

    I have actually bought that exact headset. It works pretty well. Volume is not the greatest. At the highest volume, voices are just a tad low if the other players' mics aren't close enough.
    Everyone seems to hear me fine, so the mic on it is good.

    I had a Mad Catz ear bud mic thing that was crap. Once I got MW2 I ended up buying that headset. I would go with that if I were you.

    Yeah, the over the ear headset has been pretty good ever since i got it last year. But it has some trouble picking up my voice at times. It may be just me, since i talk softly.
