ok so i usually play through the night since there are much more players on line then (UK) time but i live with the parents so i want a headset and adaptor that will allow me to hear the game play, anyone chatting and i want to chat , so in other words i need something that will filter the sound of the games and people chatting to me so it will definatly need an adaptor for that and 2 earfones rather than 1

anyone know of any headsets and adaptors to do this

If you have 40-50 spare I recommend Turtle Bech x11s! Get them from Amazon for 40 and I just got some and there amazing.. amazing doesnt even descibe it actually!

The sound is epic, especially when explosions happen in a game, you get the base rumble all over and then the muffles sound before everything comes back into focus.

You can chat with them and set the volume on the voice and the game sound seperatly, as well as mute vioces, yourself or have on! Its HDTV set, so you just set it all up via youe Xbox/HD Cables and you're good to go!

I'e only had them for a week and its the best buy I've done in a long time! You can just take them off, put them around your neck, put the sound up and its still loud enough and perfect quality its great!

I have 2 of those and they are awesome, I love them and so do my kids.
I can hear things now that I never knew were in the game by playing the sound through the tv. Highly recommend them, you won't go wrong with these.

You can get them off other sites but they maybe a bit more expensive?

You dont need adaptors. You can play via a standard tv or a HD one with or with and HDMI cable etc.. Its best to have an Elite/S though for better quality + surround sound effects etc

Worth it though asImportz says, you'll hear things you never knew that were there and the sound of a gun going off it lovely!

the kind of tv i have should not really make any difference unless when i change my settings for my video on my xbox to 1080p it makes changes on the audio also ??

If so i have a Panasonic VIERA anyway which is fully HD 1080p 100000hz so its capable of the best which i have it set up for using the HDMI lead and settings for it also, god i remember the difference the day i got all that stuff i was stunned lol so if these headsets are as good as you say, this will make my gaming experience amazing, i cant wait =D !!

And yeah it is an ELITE i have .

XLCs are the oldest and are a lot quiter, also the mesh around the headphones is extremely uncomfy and itchy.
