I've got a pair of XO7's coming to GameStop on preorder (supposedly in tomorrow). Realistically, now that MS has decided to limit the controller output to stereo, I may not keep them. I can get full 5.1 DD through the optical output -> XP510 base -> wireless
to XP510 headset and stereo chat through the (cheaper than the new headset) adapter by itself.
The only reason I'm even accepting the XO7 is to try it out, then connect the 510's and compare them. There's a (slim) possibility that audio (either game or chat) will be better with the XB1-targeted headset.
Forgot to add- if the 510's sound as good, I always have the option of leaving the base connected to my 360's audio out, then just swapping the 510's between controllers (and accepting only stereo from the One).
well im paying $165 for my polks, but I dont consider that to be "overpriced" considering if I get 5 years of high quality sound out of them then thats only $33 a YEAR for what I figure to be high quality..also im hoping for more like 8 years of high quality
sound lol..but that may be a stretch.
@drcyrex you can get the XO4 here in the UK for £70 from www.greenmangaming.com seems like a fair price for me (GAME are charging £90).
What are the differences between the XO4 and XO7? I've been looking but I can barely see anything. They both seem to do the exact same audio quality, but the X07 has a "premium" look and has removable ear plates or something.
