This "modern" camo they speak of hasn't been used since about 2003. However, I like it as it takes me back to when I went through basic training in 2001. It just doesn't have that extra "pop" I need to buy it.
Video games are like life, difficult, frustrating, but most of all, they're fun and rewarding when you slow down and enjoy them.
I want a Wireless Headset!!!!!!!!

So, why can't we have a wireless headset for the X1? I'm not talking about wireless game audio, I want a wireless chat headset/earset. I am a game audio snob, and $300 headphones sound like garbage compared to surround sound system, so, I'll just use that. But, I do like to put my controller down and walk over to the kitchen to get a drink, but like staying in party chat, which I currently cannot on the X1...
Wireless for just chat, sure. Wireless for chat and game audio, mixed, is much more complicated. The dongle you plug the into the controller is doing all the processing work. I bought the official wireless headset, the one that was single ear and looked like a bad cell phone headset and I thought it sucked. Probably me using it wrong, but the wire doesn't bother me that much.

The only way to tell the difference was 1st gen had a wall charger, and 2nd gen charged off 360 USB. The 3rd gen was/is a pretty decent dual mode piece. It has a switch on it to go from 360 to Bluetooth, so, it is actually my 360 AND PS3 headset.

Yeah, if I want wireless audio, then I will actually get something with a true audio processor...
Mine was wall charger I think. Being early adopter strikes again.
It won't be for everyone, but I have the X1 Turtle beach headphones and they have great sound quality. They work for what I need, but like Futiles said, you can't put your controller down, stay actively engaged in game chat, and go get a drink.
