    i like that it comes with two batteries instead of either requiring you to provide your own rechargeable batteries or making you buy the second one.

    I was always scared that my wireless mouse would stop working at the worst times, which sometimes it did. With that in mind, plus that I don’t play on an XBOX, I won’t be buying it. Overall, the features are pretty cool though. Everyone has a complaint that headsets that they purchase don’t last long, hopefully this headset lasts for them, seems to be a good quality headset.

    That’s a cool feature to have when you’ve been gaming for hours. It totally sucks when your wireless mouse, wireless headset, wireless keyboard, wireless whatever slowly dies on you during the most important time of the game. Thanks Raine!

    I like these better than the other featured headsets. I’m sincerely hoping the price is a whole lot lower on these!

    I’m still gonna get Astros but is there any chance this will work with PS3 too because my friend wants this to replace his AX 720s and he wants to use it for both…

    The new Warhead will only be compatible with the Xbox 360, due to the fact that it uses Microsoft’s proprietary wireless technology.
