Inside the cardboard shipping box, a clamshell-style plastic package holds the headset and all its accessories.
Inside the package you'll find the headset, a wall plug power adapter, amplifier/volume control module and all the cabling and adapters you'll need to connect these ‘phones to your Xbox (or 360). There is also a brief instruction booklet included, but it's really unnecessary. This set is truly “plug-n-play”.
PRODUCT PICTORIAL AND WALKTHROUGH
The AXT Headset is very well designed and includes a microphone on a flexible stalk with a swivel connection to the left-hand earpiece. The microphone stalk allows precise placement and can be swiveled out of the way when not needed. A single cable enters the left-hand earpiece from the bottom, reducing the cable clutter of a two-cable system. The earpieces are connected by two rubber-coated metal loops that keep the headset in place, while an adjustable, padded headpiece conforms to the top of one's head.
The design provides a lot of flexibility, allowing the user to get the phones in just the right configuration for extended gaming comfort.
The earpieces are well padded and covered in a faux-leather material that is very supple. The earpieces also swivel laterally to provide a very comfortable fit for even the largest of heads. The earpieces also do a good job of muffling environmental noise. The oval foam material covers the speaker chamber.
