-- Old Lyme, Conn. – November 28, 2011: Xbox gamers no longer need to turn around or look over their shoulder to know what’s going on in the game. Sound engineers from world-leading audio specialist Sennheiser have developed the perfect headsets to assist gamers in hearing what’s happening around them even before they can see it.
The two models, the X 320 and X 2, are Sennheiser’s first ever Xbox headsets and have been developed for use with Xbox LIVE®. In this online community, more than 35 million players from around the world come together to compete in games, while being able to talk and interact with each other.
The headsets’ technology is based on expertise gained from Sennheiser’s PC gaming series—one of the best selling gaming headset series in the world—and includes new features specifically developed for Xbox gaming.
The top-of-the-line X 320 features Sennheiser amplified stereo sound, which boosts the Xbox 360’s audio experience. A professional-
grade, noise-canceling microphone ensures that only the gamer’s voice is heard. Dual volume control lets gamers independently adjust the game’s audio and fellow players’ voices. The automatic microphone mute feature allows gamers to mute the microphone simply by raising the boom, thus eliminating the need for buttons.
The single-sided X 2 headset is designed as a durable and robust alternative for cost-conscious gamers who do not want to compromise on quality. As with the X 320, it also features a noise-canceling microphone.
Xbox LIVE is one of the fastest growing gaming communications platforms worldwide. That, coupled with the need for gamers to be able to communicate with teammates in the game while being able to hear top quality sound, led Sennheiser to create ideal headsets specifically for the Xbox system,” said Christian Ern of Sennheiser Communications.
The two headsets are designed to be worn for hours of continuous play, without sacrificing comfort and quality. Each includes a two-year warranty.
The X 320 (street price: $149.95) and X 2 (street price: $29.95) are available now from select retailers.
