Plantronics Gamecom X95
by Mark R
Some of you might remember our review of the Gamecom 777 from Plantronics, and I got a chance to try out the Gamecom X95 for the Xbox 360.
The purpose of the Gamecom X95 is so that Xbox players can go with wireless headphones. What happens is the wireless transmitter connects via USB to the Xbox 360, and then sends a signal to the headphones. It isn’t completely wireless, as there is a wire to connect the controller to the headphones.
The end result is more immersive gaming with 40 mm speakers, and it has specially designed earpods and headband. The design is as sleek as it is comfortable, since the designed earpods redistribute the pressure around the ears.
Other features include a volume control on the headphones themselves, not to mention a very cool flip-up microphone boon. There is also a mic-mute button that lets you know when it is on.
All in all, it lives up to its name of being an advanced stereo gaming wireless headset for the Xbox 360. Just to let you know, it is not USB rechargeable. In other words, you will need two AA batteries, that are included with the product. You can get the X on the Plantronics site for a price of $99.99.
