Turtle Beach Tango Headset for X360 / PS3 discounted at Best Buy...might be clearance as the new headsets are coming this Spring.


Retailed for $299, have been on sale for $250, now they're just $199. I picked up a pair when my X41's died on me this week and I love them:

Have you tried the bluetooth feature yet? I have wireless turtle beaches already, but I would really like to have that feature as someone always calls when I'm playing.

Wanted:
Halo 3 headset that came with Halo 3 edition Xbox 360

I have these and I love the Bluetooth feature! With a touch of a button you can easily answer your cell or listen to music or podcasts! I love it, also these have a rechargeable battery and if it dies while playing, just plug in the included cable and charge while you play! Great headset!

Can anyone comment on if headsets like these would be compatible with next gen consoles? Obviously hard to say with no confirmed console specs yet, but possible in terms of audio connections?

I would be sick if I spent $200 on a headset that doesn't work on the next gen Xbox this fall...

^^Wondering the exact same thing..I don't plan on buying next-gen on release anyway but it would suck to waste money on something that'll be useless in less than a year.

Thats a good question. If you bought them for sound only, then yes if there is optical out ports on next gen. Guessing so.

But the chat functionality would be unknown... Yes they have BT but would probably need software support from TB for MS next gen. Just a thought assuming Sony stuck with BT and MS dropped RF in favor of BT.

FYI Gamestop has the non-CoD skinned PX 5's for $160 through tomorrow.
Edit: Still 7.1 Dolby Surround with the chat adapter for 360, but it's 2.4 Ghz.

On this pair it connects via optical cable into the back of the system so as long as the console has that port it should be fine. If they don't TB will make adapters just like they do for older 360's w/o HDMI and/or optical ports.

No, it doesn't. The bluetooth Xbox adapter is only included on the XP300, XP400, and XP500 and some of the COD Branded stuff, but not on the PX5 or PX3. PX5 and PX3 does include Bluetooth functionality built in, but not Xbox adapter.

These should be compared to the XP400 except it has customizable presets and COD branding.

I think he's referring to the talkbalk feature. It's for chat function over XBL. I have a PX5.

Sorry yeah not the Blutooth adapater, I was talking about the chat cable to plug into the headset/controller as Oregon showed in the pics.

Apparently the adapter is $30 seperately on turtlebeach.com and you have to use AA batteries on the PX5 so yeah the CoD set is the better deal, especially if you have to have the adapter. I got my PX 5's on a sale right after Christmas for $130 new and the CoD set wasn't on sale and I've been loving them so much over my old x31's.

so i guess there is no way to get a store stock check up for them without a product page or a way to get amazon to price match.
I'm going to go ahead and submit the the gamestop price to amazon
it would at least be about the best buy price considering tax

I'm starting to look as well at the high-end headsets. I read some of the internet reviews, and one said the audio quality of the Turtle Beach XP400 (I don't know if this particular model is similar) isn't as good as the Tritton Warhead or Astro A50. I avoided the Warhead since it only has xbox 360 chat. When I read the reviews about the Astro A50 on amazon, it looked like a lot of people were having major problems with it, so I decided against it. Now waiting for the new models to appear this year.

Think I'm going to try XP400's. They are $170 and Reward Zone/Unlocked coupon takes off another $50.

Edit: That was sale price for last week, just changed back to $220.

Heard too many problems with their customer service and mixamp problems. No thanks. At least turtle beach is quick about replacing broken or faulty equipment.

My XP-something-or-other (wired 360 headset) is comfy. That makes me want these. But $200 is still a lot and I don't really want the COD branding. Still, I'd like a wireless headset that works with both 360 and PS3. Question - can it be connected to both consoles and switch between them? Or do you have to pull/plug cables?

Would these work with a PS3 and 360 hooked up to the same TV without a lot of hassle (i.e. unplugging things)? I don't care about chat for the 360. I play mostly on the PS3 and stream HBO Go through the Xbox and play a few games but I just don't want to have to mess around with moving my consoles around and unplugging wires to get it to work with one system and then the other.

I can't type right now... does that make sense?
