- The headset’s sounds is sweet with Dolby 7.1 Surround Sound with sonic lens and audio presets you can customize your game experience to get the full experience from your audio.
- The bluetooth lets you chat and take calls without interfering with your game.
- The chat boost limits the loud explosions so that you can hear the background better and the dynamic boost keeps your voice heard above the din of battle.
- The mic boom is removable and can be replaced with an optional talkback cable
- Comfort is high with oversized cushioned earpieces.
- The silencer gate can be difficult to set up as it eliminates the background noise. Sometime this can be a fine line between loosing the background noise and loosing the soft sounds of the game.
The Bottom Line: The XP500 is just amazing. It just doesn’t get much better than this. Well actually, this is just the base model of the XP500 line. With the upper level headsets you get an increase in sound quality but I think you will be quite pleased with the features and sound you get from this model.
