That is the Turtle Beach Ear Force x32 Gaming Headset. Starting from Turtle Beach you have a quality guarantee; it is the best brand around and has many products to fit all necessities.
They cost 99 USD, which makes them medium priced. If you only want a slightly improve over your present sound system you can get cheaper headsets for 25 USD. If, in the other hand, you want to spend a lot and get the best available, you could try these, for “only” 270 USD
They deliver you 2.1 channels sound wirelessly, perfectly synchronized with your game, so there is zero lag. They have internal equalization, but you have 3 options: “Normal”, “Bass Boost” and “High-Def”. The sound is transmitted from a small device that connects to your Xbox’ sound cables and is USB-powered; it connects directly into the Xbox. It has a range of about 10 meters (30 feet) straight, reduced by obstacles, like walls or furniture. In this model, to get the chat audio you need to connect the headset to the controller like a normal headset, with the difference that you get separated game audio and chat audio controls.
It has another nice touch: it automatically regulates chat volume, so if your game is getting intense and music is high, the chat volume goes high. If you are in a quieter scene, it goes down.
They come in black or white. They have massive 50mm speakers, stored inside a very comfortable design. Your ears won’t hurt, even after hours of playing. The microphone is at the tip of a completely flexible wire, which can accommodate to any position you may want. They also have a synthetic fabric surrounding the speakers and all along the body of the headset; it has a long pad inside to avoid getting uncomfortable because of prolonged use.
They use 2 AA batteries, which can run out very quickly if you are like me and play all day long. They usually last one ore two weeks of intensive use.
I totally recommend these if you want to improve your overall hearing experience while playing Xbox, specially at games like Call of Duty or Halo, where sounds play a mayor role.
