Default Xbox 360 headset advice wanted.

So, Ive only ever used the cheap headset that comes with the Xbox 360 but I would like to upgrade to something better. I sit about 13 feet from my Xbox when I play and it seems that many wired controllers would reach so im not completely hung up on a wireless set - especially if i can get good sound quality for less money with a wired set. Ive gone to the store and looked at different options but im not well enough versed to really know what is better. I understand that the units that cost more are higher quality but id like to stay in the 100 dollar price range...but id like to get a decent set for the money.

Nick, he wants over hear sound form the TV.

Honestly Pat, as long as you don't throw them around and rip them off of your head, for $100, go with the Turtle Beach Earforce X32. http://www.turtlebeach.com/product-d...r-force-x32/58 It's the safe, smart bet and it's solid/wireless. You should get some rechargable batteries along with it. They have packs for like $12 at CVS.

Turtle Beach: Owned 5 of them, from $30 versions to $130 versions. They tend to break if you're rough with them. Sometimes you get wireless interference, but the sound is great for $100 and people hear you well.
Astro: Eric had a pair, they worked great. He heard everything clearly and his mic was very clear. My friend Ty has a pair, he has no complaints; except he has to flip a switch once an hour to fix his voice. I don't know if he's customized it at all. My friend Junior has the same switch problem.
Tritton: I have worn them once, there wasn't anything special. My aquaintance Chris has a pair that physically broke. I just don't trust Madcatz, which is the company that makes Tritton. Madcatz has always been cheap.

Skullcandy makes headsets, Afterglow.... and a bunch of other companies, but the 3 mentioned above are the top 3 most popular.
