Features
Designed as a premium quality, wired headset for Xbox 360 gamers, the SteelSeries Spectrum 5xb has XL-sized, hear-through cloth ear cushions that fit comfortably around the ear. With the custom-built soundscape via 40mm SunDancer (SCS) units, gamers can pinpoint the direction and locations of noises and movement throughout the game. The headset features a durable, double-braided nylon cord and dismantles into 3 separate parts. Its retractable, unidirectional microphone presents users with adjustable, convenient and clear voice communication for Xbox LIVE.

STEELSERIES AUDIOMIXER- The SteelSeries Spectrum AudioMixer connects the SteelSeries Spectrum 5xb to the Xbox 360 and provides independent audio and voice volume controls. The independent volume controls offer maximum power over what you hear. You no longer have to waste time muting other players.

STEELSERIES LIVEMIX- SteelSeries LiveMix offers players the quick-button option to improve the balance of Xbox LIVE chat and in-game audio, so that voice communication is mixed and amplified over the sounds of gunfire and explosions, without having to increase the volume of the headset and risk hearing damage.

AMAZING COMFORT--The comfortable XL-sized, hear-through cloth ear cushions fit comfortably around the ear, offering you a great audio experience while treating your ears like royalty. It's so comfortable that it can be used for multiple hours at a time. Even if you wear glasses.

TRAVEL FRIENDLY--Going somewhere? No problem. The SteelSeries Spectrum 5xb can be dismantled into 3 separate pieces. This makes transporting your headsets easy and safe. No more showing up at a tournament or a friends' house with broken equipment.

5 out of 5 eggsSweet, light and sounds good.

Pros: The headphones feel very light and the ear pieces are super comfortable. I made a skype test call and the clarity of the sound and the recording was just exactly what I was looking for.

Cons: short cord -- I wish it were about 1 meter longer.

Other Thoughts: Not sure what to do with all of the other wires for the xBox. I wonder if I could make an adapter and find some way to use it on a PC?

Delivery on EggSaver was the fastest I think I have ever had.

5 out of 5 eggsI don't think it's a refurb...

Pros: Have you seen the cost?
It seems these are just extra new in box units being sold (hence the low price).
Good mic and sound quality.
Paracord sleeved cables.
Can produce very low frequencies (50hz tested with audacity).
Retractable mic.
Seems quite sturdy.
Can be disassembled.

Cons: If you plan to use this for PC; the cable coming from the headset itself is very short (3ft).

Other Thoughts: I had to buy two extension cables for this (one for speakers, one for microphone). Not too disappointed about this considering the low price.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome Headset!

Pros: The adapter for the Xbox controller alone is worth the price I paid for this great headset. Now my son can use any PC headset he wants with his XBOX. Awesome considering I was tired of buying 2 of everything and the high end XBOX headsets always cost mroe for the privlidege of using them with an XBOX. Used it on both PC and XBOX sound quality is good. Not an audiophile I don't care about perfection, just good quality voice and sound.

Cons: None that I have found so far.
