The XTATIC comes in nice bold packaging with a clear panel enabling you to get a look at the headsets without opening the box, and there is a Velcro front flap that also contains a bullet-point feature list. The reverse is fairly compact thanks to the multiple languages covered as befits a product for the European market.

Both SX and SP come with a box containing the cables necessary to connect the XTATIC to the consoles. Similar to the SteelSeries 5XB we reviewed earlier the connection method entails some pass-through cables between the console and the TV. Both come with the controller cable for the 360 Pad which then connects to the inline remote.

The microphone for each is detachable to help with transportation, and also should you want to use them purely as a set of headphones.

Both the SX and SP have logos printed on the well padded headband. The SX in particular follows the colour scheme of it's relevant console well.

I've got a Sharkoon Rush Headset and Rush Gaming Mouse. I have to say for the money they cost me, they are superb bits of kit. Pity I know nothing about Sharkoon as a company, but will happily look at their products in the future.Quote

Captain Caveman
well, unfortunately they're only stereo. If were making the argument of a multipurpose headset for listening to music and gaming on the PC and console the boring old stereo wont do it for gaming enthusiasts. I use Triton AXpro 5.1 surround. My only complaint is that the ear cups are too small in diameter and depth for extended useQuote
