A good deal here for anyone who wants the opportunity to chat directly to their multiplayer teammates across XBOX Live. Dealextreme are offering an XBOX 360 headset with free delivery for just $4.56 (which works out at about £2.76). This is an undeniably great price given that an official XBOX 360 head set will set you back something in the region of £10 to £15.
However this is a fairly controversial deal. Some customers who bought this unofficial headset complained that its components were manufactured to a poor quality. They noted that it feels different to one of the official XBOX headsets which were weightier and less flimsy. So probably not a good idea to hurl it across the room in a fit of game induced frustration! But although it is clearly more prone to damage over time, many customers were satisfied with their purchase and stated that, on the whole, the headsets work very well.
Overall this deal sounds like a bit of a lottery. Either you’re going to receive a headset in perfect working order or one with minor issues which can generally be resolved by making the odd repair. One customer stated that their headset worked fine for a week then broke. However after soldering a loose wire they were able to get it back up and running and have had no further problems. So this deal might not pay off for everyone, but if your feeling lucky and don’t mind taking a small gamble, you could end up making a nice saving!
