    Hello everyone that are reading this and thanks for stopping by. As you can tell by the title, this is involving the Xbox one. This kinda walks the line of my last discussion on how Razer could use their Razer headsets for personal emblems/logos, but the over all idea of this that Razer should invest into the Xbox one, because not only they get business out of it, but because the Razer loving fans out there would love to use more for the Xbox. My idea is that Razer should use the advantage of the optical input on the Xbox, and as well bring back some old ideas back onto the table. For instance the Razer Tiamat 7.1 headsets mix-amp. This idea would bring back the mix-amp control station out onto the scene once more, the only thing they have to change really is the 3.5 audio jacks into and optical cable. And not forget the some additional ideas that us the community want and also that Razer can provide.
    If you guys like this please spread this idea out so Razer can see this and don't forget if you have any comments about this please comments below so we can discuss further on this subject.

    I for sure would be interested in some more affordable cross-compatible devices. Considering that Xbox is trying to merge with PC a lot, having devices which work perfectly on both mediums would be highly useful. I guess it's a matter of the payoff and how much it's worth it? The good news is that now that Microsoft is recovering from being the less popular current gen console there's more of a chance companies will focus on the now larger userbase.

    Thank you for your thoughts about this idea, and I think the price should be around the same prize as the Razer Tiamat 7.1, and thats $200 but I think that Razer could either around that price (hopefully less) if not not much more. But remember Astro gaming and Turtle beach have their top of the line headsets almost $300, and as of right now Razer have Kraken headset made for Xbox one but it plugs into the controller and it wasn't that good from my personal experience and that is $100.

    Yeah I tried the Kraken Mobile headset and I wasn't super keen on it. It was doing some pretty dramatic things to the sound which I didn't fully agree with haha. I prefer my headsets to try and present as much of a 'true' sound as possible. But of course there is always that tricky balance between quality and price, and deciding where to place the product.

    I think one of the best reasons Razer should be doing more for Xbox though is that they share the same colour scheme :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

    Yeah same here with the audio problems but also with comfort, it kinda crushed my ears and started putting presser on the sides of my head over a period of time. And nice idea of the color scheme to combine Xbox and Razer.

    Yeah that can be a problem with heaps of headphones. It's why I like adjustable around ear designs instead of many on ear ones.

    Pretty much the same feeling about that here too man.

    So I actually just got some new headphones like 10 minutes ago which I'd ordered recently, they're Plantronics GameCom P80s and...I'm actually really really impressed with them. They were an absolute bargain at $36AUD (~$26USD) and they have very very good sound...I think even better than my $200 Logitech Ultimate Ears ones. Not only that but they're wireless and have a built in microphone which turns on and off automatically depending on what position it's in, and has an alleged 10 hours battery life. The sound is crisp and clear, with just the right amount of bass, not overpowering but distinctly there. Only problem is I think they only work on PS4 and PC, although I'm going to try plugging them into my Xbox just for fun and see what happens.

    I mean they were reduced from a bit over twice that amount, but it clearly demonstrates that it's possible to create a really solid product without a huge pricetag. Sure, they're not metal or anything, but I'm thoroughly impressed with them and now I'm probably going to sell my other headphones as I won't need them anymore given this has more features and equal if not better sound...

    Maybe Razer should take a look at them ;) If they had the Razer design and perhaps slightly more premium build quality they'd do very very well indeed!

    But Razer cant always take other companies designs or whatever.

    Yeah I don't mean taking their design so much as listening to the audio and finding a way to craft headphones who's intent is to create more accurate audio instead of "enhanced" audio, as messing around with the bass etc. can make the headphones unenjoyable for anything other than FPS games.

    Like for me, I use the Razer kranken pro for my gaming on Xbox. Not only it works for Xbox by either the controller or even better yet what I have/using the Astro gamings Mixamp pro. That's why I suggested Razer should make their own version of the mixamp, because without me using the Mizamp pro its hard to adjust the audio levels perfectly.
