With the Warhead 7.1, Tritton delivers very good simulated surround sound to Xbox 360 users. More significantly, it's the first fully wireless third-party headset for the Xbox 360. It also has very good battery life, and solid, interference-free wireless performance. However, at $300, it's priced on par with the gdgt Must-have Astro Gaming A50, a cross-platform headset that offers a nearly wireless experience with the Xbox 360. If you must go fully wireless, and you'll only be using your headset with an Xbox 360, the Warhead is a the best available option. Otherwise, the A50 is a more versatile choice.

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.

It delivers premium quality 7.1 surround sound, something not even Microsoft's first-party hardware does. That makes it a product without peer, mainly by merit of not being tethered to your controller or having to spend a half-hour behind your television rerouting audio signals.

The Tritton Warhead is for gamers who will pay for wireless reliability at the cost of versatility and true audio fidelity. It's a great way to experience Gears of War 3 with friends online, just don't expect it to be the centerpiece of your home theatre setup.

You might find that competing offerings from Turtle Beach and Astro come out stronger in one category or another, but the Warhead is a brilliant piece of Xbox 360-exclusive gear that offers much to justify its $300 price.

This is a really good gaming headset for an xbox. That is the trick though, for xbox. If you were intending to hook this up to several devices and switch back and forth it would be a pain and the mic wouldn't go. The fact it comes with dual batteries so you charge one while using the other is...

The sound quality and sound stage wre both excellent . The orange tritton logo of yesteryear gone and I think this new silver acscent look looks phenomenal and as with all trittons it's looks like it just came out of a science fiction movie and the base stand could pass as a futuristic missile...
