Your headphones are crapping out in a couple of months because you're looking at $20 headphones. Spend a little more, the quality will be better in the audio as well as the overall construction.
yeah, I know for 20 bucks it won't be the best thing going...but I would think since it normally costs more that it might be slightly more durable.
I was thinking of the tutrtlebeach x12 instead, but if the XL1 is similiar, then the price point is right.
Is the x12 the best headset for the 360 in the 50 and under price range?
