Dedicated Xbox headset is released30 September 2011 16:40:14
Xbox 360 gamers can now play their online games on Xbox live with a dedicated gaming headset.
Mad Catz has released the world's first official co-branded headset designed specifically for Xbox gamers.
The Tritton Detonator headset features stereo sound, 50mm Neodymium drivers, selectable voice monitoring – which allows the gamer to filter out their own voice - and a detachable boom microphone.
Gamers looking for more than a headset can easily remove the microphone to allow the Tritton Detonator to be used as headphones for a variety of mp3 players.
The makers were exited to see how gamers will find the new accessory.
"Releasing a co-branded range of headsets has enabled us to offer an enticing feature set and quality audio which we are certain will appeal to the passionate gamer," said Darren Richardson, the president and chief executive officer of Mad Catz Interactive.
There are now more than 20 million Xbox live gamers, according to maker Microsoft.
