looking at buying headphones for my 360.

there r a few competitors out there such as:

  • Tritons ax 360, pros, 720s and 900

  • Turtle Beach x4 and x41

  • Astro a40 and mix amp

i am completely lost, i dunno which one to buy.
i hear the astro a40s are amazing but they come at a hefty price.
i am willing to pay for them as long as they are the best but could someone
give me any personal reviews if you have used any of the above?

The Ax360s look perfect for the job in my books

The turtle beach x41, not too sure about, you can get 7.1 working on the PS3 through optical with a few hacks, but on the Xbox360? not too sure, I don't think it has 7.1 output, only 5.1. Meaning that the 7.1 would probably be simulated, taking the outputs from the front and rear and mixing them into the centre

X4 and a40 = good though

You'll definitely notice it, I used to game about 5 years ago with the old Zalman 5.1 channel headphones, really helped in UT and CS, especially when you can hear someone coming up behind you

I have moved across the ditch.  Now residing in Melbourne as a VOIP/Video Technical Trainer/Engineer.
