New Xbox Headsets On The Way
Those flimsy headsets you get with the Xbox 360 might finally be bin food when, later this year, new official high-end headsets arrive.
Microsoft has partnered with peripheral maker Mad Catz, who will release the co-branded headsets during the "2011 holiday shopping season", donning the Xbox logo alongside Mad Catz’ Tritton branding.
The range will offer both wired and wireless units, including a high-end set that dons Dolby 5.1 Surround Sound, so you can hear Xbox Live’s four-letter expletives from all directions.
Darren Richardson, Mad Catz’s president and CEO, said: "The headphone category is the fastest growing category in the video game space - and this agreement assists Mad Catz’s Tritton brand in furthering its leadership to provide high-quality, innovative headphones that allow gamers and audio enthusiasts alike to enjoy a superior gaming and listening experience."
