Okay, so I was about to buy the Astro Gaming A40 Wireless System (a.k.a.
details
2011 Edition), but after reading some reviews (I liked the CNET one) and lots of different opinions, I just got so confused. A lot of people says the Astro A40 are the best gaming headset ever created, and that they so superior than the Turtle Beach X41. Then there's the people that says you should get the Turtle Beach X41 cause they have 7.1 Surround, a way better bass, and are cheaper (and wireless, but that is no longer a problem). Is there really a noticeable diference between Surround... Read more →

x41 or x31 working with OS X
details
I was wondering if anyone has had luck getting these headphones to work with OS X? I wouldn't mind shelling out the cash for the x41 if I knew they were dual use but after some google searches I came back pretty empty. Just a little bit of txt on Turtle Beach's page that it should work on Mac / PC minus the mic.

PS3 hookup: Any analog to bluetooth adapters?
details
When I first started reading about these, I seem to remember finding a site where somebody had linked to a bluetooth adapter that converted an analog headset to bluetooth. Using this, the person had supposedly made the headset work with the PS3 as well. It's basically a bridge. Anybody know of something like this? IIRC, it was a linked to something on Amazon that was about $15. I just can't find it.

Little tip stop help stop the crackling.
details
I got these two items to replace the wire from the controller to the headset. I like having the mic volume and mute button on the controller rather than on the wire. It also helped reduce the crackling sound that these sometimes make. http://www.amazon.com/Xbox-360-Headset-Adapter/dp/... http://www.monoprice.com/products/product.asp?c_id...

Turtle Beach Ear Force X41 vs. Astro Gaming A40 vs. Tritton AX Pro
details
With MW2 coming up I'm thinking of doing a surround headset shootout. Anyone used all three? What do you think? I've been hearing the X41 build quality is a little cheap and the audio isn't the most impressive; the Astro appears to be simulated surround only (which I'm not about to go for) but I hear it's a much better built device; the Tritton seems a little on the lower-end side and I haven't heard a ton on these guys. http://gdgt.com/turtle-beach/ear-force/x41/...
