Since we were never without battery power while using the Warhead, we basically had to force ourselves to stop playing MW3 long enough to write this review. The Warhead is a solid offering from Tritton, proving the company has finally caught up to the latest generation of gaming headsets. The sound it produces is respectable; the fit is fairly comfortable; and all of its features prove to be extremely useful and enjoyable. What's more, the Microsoft collaboration has paid off handsomely: The on-dashboard battery readout is a welcome addition, and the exclusive integrated wireless-chat functionality makes the Warhead the most convenient headset available for the Xbox 360. So here's where that leaves us. If audio quality, personalization and cross compatibility are your foremost considerations, we'd still recommend headsets like Astro's A50 or Turtle Beach's XP500. But if you're willing to let go of a little fidelity and EQ customizability, the Warhead 7.1 offers the best overall user experience we've seen in an Xbox 360 headset.
