Just buy two. Then you have one for each ear.

A full headset cuts you off from the rest of the room, and since we're doing this every night, it's important that we still feel like we can talk to each other separately outside the video game cocoon. Voila, a use for one-sided headset.



You just sold me on this. When I'm plugged into my headphones I don't hear my wife at all. Nicely said. Thank you for extending my marriage also lol.

NO! these WILL NOT WORK WITH YOUR XBOX!!!!!
the last time these were up, woot had them listed as "motorola gaming headset for xbox 360"
the headsets they received shipped with a regular usb end on their cable, that will not work(or even get powered up by) your xbox.
they DO work as a headset for your pc, if you wanna chat with your guildies on your fav. MMO, or for say, skype..

for those of us who bought them last time, (i was in for 3), woot has been feverishly trying to get the correct cables for the xbox360, but the vendor keeps sending them more of the pc cables....
they even gave us a super secret coupon code to try and make up for our troubles...

Had one of these for the xbox. They're alright. I wouldn't get it for PC because of the mono speaker. It's also pretty tight on the head.

Luckily, I've already unlocked shipping, b/c they don't look like they're worth $8. But for $3, it is worth the gamble on possibly getting a good headset for Skype. I wouldn't expect anything priced at $3 to provide high end sound. So just buy one and let's move on to the next Woot-off!

Hey earlyre,

You know how Xbox 360s aren’t the same things as PCs? Well, it turns out not everyone does.

You see, that Motorola “Xbox 360” Headset you bought from Tech.Woot on August 18th? It showed up just fine… with only a PC cable. We tried to get some adapters, twice actually… and both times they turned out to be PC cables too. We’re going to try again, but it’s not looking good at this point. Maybe third times the charm, right? We sure hope so, because if we get any more PC cables, we’re gonna to run out of warehouse space.

Still, what really stinks is that you thought you were getting an Xbox 360 headset, and you’re not. So, we’d like to offer you a xx coupon xxxxxxxx for each headset you purchased. Sure, it won’t fill the void left by all those tirades you planned to unleash on your Modern Warfare opponents, but we think it’ll help. And if you ever choose to venture into the realm of PC gaming, you're one piece closer to being fully equipped.

Keeping it PC as always,
Woot!

Correct. These headsets were mistakenly sold to us as Xbox headsets. We've corrected the listing as PC headsets for this sale. They have a USB connector.

I am continually saddened by the idea that some human beings sit in a dark basement playing computer games. It's even worse when I realize there are people making money off these sad troglodytes by making things specifically designed to KEEP them in the basement by feeding their addiction special equipment like one-eared headsets.

OK, OK, in some cases, it probably IS best if they stay there. (reconsidering) OK, maybe it's best if they ALL stay there.

I bought it when it was supposed to be for XBOX, and it came with a PC cable. The woot gods gave everyone a refund, but it's pretty useless for PC. If you have speakers, too, you can just use it for voice audio though.

Do gamers who sit in the corner of the living room or in a home office make you equally sad, or is it just the basement part?

I'm just hanging out, really.

Well for all the comments about what gamer only uses on ear... I have a good pair of noise-cancelling headphones but often end up with 1 ear uncovered to hear my SO across the table from me when we are playing games together( which is at least a couple hrs a day). If the mic could be reversed to use on the right ear I would be in for a couple... I am used to uncovering my left ear but with my current headset it can get uncomfortable if I keep it that way for any extended time lol. YMMV

bought 2. cheap as hell and i totally fit into the "i need one of my ears to be able to hear my surroundings because I'm not a carefree person that can sit in front of a game for hours without knowing what's going on around me because my wife could be yelling at me at any moment, or one of my dogs might be peeing on my coffee table or my white trash neighbors house might be on fire" category

but ya, i guess i'm the loser that only uses one ear for gaming

Not exactly the same thing, those who are not in the correct environment to fulfill the stereotype should relocate immediately.

These aren't intended to replace the speakers on your PC or console. This is intended to separate the voice chat from the game audio. Not a TON of things will support that out-of-the-box, but I believe the Xbox will, and I think the PS3 also has options to do this.

This is good if you like to play online games, but don't want other listeners to have to hear the typically vulgar, but often integral, chatter of teamwork/rivalry.

Have you tried contacting Motorola? It's possible they can help you figure out the issue with your headset.

If you are still encountering issues, please feel free to contact us at service@woot.com and we'll be glad to assist you.

Just got mine. Very comfortable but the cable that comes with it is CRAP! and not the Buccaneers of Caribbean kind of CRAP, real CRAP! If it hadn't been so cheap, I would demand my money back or at least a new cable. The bad cable makes the headset useless!
