ya well I'll most likely get it cause i was waitin for that wireless headset but its not comin for a few little while and my mike right now has problems gettin the other players voices into the headset so i gotta use speaker...this sounds high quality and a must have for those gamers like me who like to toss the headset at the ground when u get frusturated.

08-11-2004, 10:04 PM
well i don't think this headset will last very long when you throw it at the ground, or any headset for that matter.

Hell that's some sweet!

08-12-2004, 12:36 AM
I will definitelty get it, just so I'll be that much cooler with a halo 2 text on the side of it. It'll be a hit with my friends!

08-12-2004, 12:54 AM
Yall think it's worth $50?

08-12-2004, 12:55 AM
50 dollars holy ****... yes. yes its worth it. :lol:

Pretty cool, but, my current headset works fine...especially since I barely use it.

08-12-2004, 02:28 AM
$50. No. Plain and simple. My other one's not great, but i won't spend 50 for this bunch of nothing.

08-12-2004, 03:13 AM
I'll pass, mine works fine. Plantronics makes very nice mics though

Whoa whoa whoa...fifty ****ing bucks...geez who do these people think they are...this controller might be worth the dough but I doubt its worthy of it.

08-12-2004, 12:00 PM
i could use a new headset, that looks about as good as any.

08-12-2004, 12:47 PM
I picked up a little ear bud one for a great whopping $8 Canadian (what is that like $0.37 US or something). After a couple of hours your ear starts to get sore, but for $8 I can't complain. As long as people can hear my cries of pain as they kick my ass at Black Arrow I guess it is fine.

I already own a head set...

Im not that fanboy, where I feel the need to buy a head set because it has a halo logo on it.

08-12-2004, 02:17 PM
I'll probably buy it since I don't have a head set yet. I was planning on buying one with a year of xbox live when halo 2 comes out. I guess I'll probably jsut get one of those and buy the year of live seperately. And just for the record. Anything that says Halo 2 is worth the money.

08-12-2004, 02:20 PM
Anything that says Halo 2 on it is worth fifty bucks..... AT LEAST! .....


08-12-2004, 02:29 PM
I could use another headset as a replacement (mine is kinda worn), but not for $50 when i could pick up a Mad Catz one for $5

08-12-2004, 02:56 PM
Yeah, the Plantronics headsets are AWESOME.
However, they all work on LIVE and you can pick them up at Cell phone stores for half that $$$.
I have 2.

Here's a link to the two and I have them both.

Seriously though, this thing is at least an extra $25 because of the Halo 2 logo, no way is it worth it.
