Hi mate,

Haunt seen the Ms one, but Turtle beach has also a new headset XP500 I think it's bluetooth/WIFI, BUt the only problem is it uses a dongle that .plugs into the controller's normal 2.5mm socket.
so it's only wireless to the controller not the xbox, if your also having problems plugging in a headset to the fanatec wheel then your will probably still have the same problems with a bluetooth adaptor.

I don't think the xbox has Bluetooth, so I'm assuming that the Ms headset also works the some way...

It would have to be 500 times better than the old one to be even worth $5.

Nothing compares to Turtle Beach.

Found this little snippet if true then it probably wont be worth a squirt of piss.

It's generally accepted that while Microsoft may excel at creating software and platforms, it struggles with hardware. Just ask anyone that's replaced an Xbox 360 (that's just about everyone, right?). Also on that list: The original Xbox 360 Wireless Headset and the barebones Media Remote.

That's why we think you'll be excited to learn that Redmond is replacing both products with newly designed (and enhanced!) versions. The Xbox 360 Wireless Headset with Bluetooth will be available in "early November 2011" worldwide for $60, a $10 premium over the existing headset. In exchange for that $10, you'll get Bluetooth support, so you can use the headset with other devices, like cell phones and your PlayStation 3. It still connects to the Xbox 360 "through the console's standard radio frequencies," so it remains to be seen if audio quality will remain a problem.

How loud can't u move the mike away from u?? try covering it with something to block the mike. if you know about electronics you could wire a small resistor into the mike inputs. there is a bit of room inside the unit.

Put it this way, i've got a similar design headset for the PS3, and i hate it. Unless the thing that sticks in your ear is super soft, don't bother, the current headsets are superior.

As i was looking to get a new wireless headset as using the cables standard headset u get with your xbox in my fanatec wheel seems to not work proply.. as i can bearly hear anyone .. it like the volume is turned right down..

Anyways ended up getting a set from the UK as it was cheaper then buying the original xbox headset again.. so when it arrives i will give it ago.. as from the past the original xbox headset i have .. has been playing up.. from memory in the last V8 series a few of the guys were saying there was screeching coming from my head set.. when on my end i couldnt hear anything.. i could see on the screen people were talking durig the race but i couldnt hear nothing .. and when i did everyone was like " DON man your head set turn it down "

hopefully this new headset will rid me of this problem..

DOH!!!! my bad i scim read the posts and some comments were about the head set i was talkn about..

i think the guy at JB's had no idea.. As just read RU mentioned the dongle goes into the controler and the shop assistant said it goes into your XBOX usb port..

Guess i will have to wait and see now.. hope its 1/2 decent compared to my old headset..

Yeh realised after being able to sit at my desk and have a read.. but hard when the boss sits next to u.. one of my probs is i skim read to quick..

after reading i did notice you guys were mentioing the headset i was talkn about.. as when i skim read i just seen turtle beach this and that so thought u guys ment the headphone type headsets..

once i get it i will test and let u guys know if they are actually better then the original ones.. im hoping they are ...
