Here's Mad Catz's Official Xbox 360 Wireless Headphones

Mad Catz's official Xbox 360 headsets has one thing nobody else has: They're totally wireless. There are three models, but the two you care about are the Warhead and Devastator. The former's Dolby 7.1, the latter's stereo.

I didn't get to wear them, much less listen to them, so I can't tell you the two most important things about them: how they sound, and how they feel. But, specs-wise, they're both are using 5.8GHz wireless to reduce interference and 50mm drivers. The Warhead's base station has a built-in battery charger, and it comes with a pair of hot-swappable batteries so you'll theoretically always have juice.

No prices, but I'm thinking well over $US150 for the Warhead, and maybe somewhere around there for the Devastator. More details here: [Mad Catz]

    i don't quite understand... "They’re totally wireless"
    my px5's are wireless. what are you trying to say? the sound gets from the console to the device without wires? i dont think so.

      I wish my bloody px5's would hurry up and get here.

      From the linked press release:
      "Truly Wireless - Utilizes Xbox 360's secure Wireless Xbox Live voice communications (no cable to the controller)"

      So I think they're trying to say they're the first wireless 7.1 headphones that support voice chat in particular without additional cables? Or do the PX5s do that too, I couldn't tell from their site?

        With the Turtle Beach PX5s and X41s you need to connect a wire from the controller to the headset for Xbox chat, apart from that though the in-game sound is delivered without wires.

    Yay Tritton!

    These shall be a perfect upgrade from my existing wired Tritton gear.

    i think they are saying its the first one using the official MS wireless tech which until now has remained a MS only thing... they are pretty stubborn with that..
