Up Close cont..

The microphone fits snugly in just below next to the cable on the left-hand earpiece as is the norm. With a closed-back you wont be disturbing your family or neighbours as you rock up the leaderboards.

The earpieces on both are very well padded and fit really nicely around your ears. It's a snug fit but not uncomfortably so at all.

Both the SX and SP have in-line remotes to control the volume of both the audio and the microphone. The SP also has a toggle for if you're using them as a USB audio device on either the PS3 and PC, or via the pad on the 360.

As both the SX and SP are visually identical apart from the colouring it was a perfect opportunity to demonstrate the Yin and Yang symbol in headset form. Even if the console wars are anything but harmonious and balanced.

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.

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 use
