Mad Catz & Tritton Xbox 360 Wireless Headset Set For E3 2011

We have reported on a few different types of headphones recently including an official set from Sony for $99. We have also reported on a company called Mad Catz who has managed to gain exclusivity for Microsoft Xbox 360 wireless headsets which is something that was non-existent until now.

Now these new cans are set to be displayed at the E3 event as we heard through Engadget’s Sean Hollister. He gives us some of the details about the device including the fact that they don’t need to be tethered to your controller which is a plus as it makes things a bit tidier.

Over at IGN who is the original source their author says that there will be three different headsets and they will all be under $300. We would hope that the price would be a lot lower than that as you can buy a whole new Xbox 360 for that price!

The top of the line headset is called the Warhead 7.1 which uses 5.8 wireless technology and the base station only has two cables that you need to connect the console. You can even plug in your iPod or iPhone and use the headset to listen to music! One of the best features of these headsets is you can have up to 4 sets of cans connected to one central station which will massively cut down the noise.
