Meet The Spectrum 5XB
The SteelSeries Spectrum 5xb is a premium quality, wired headset designed for Xbox 360. At a glance it is a versatile, durable, travel-friendly headset. If you're trying to take your game Xbox 360 gaming to the next level, or you are getting harassed at home because of the noise level while gaming, you may just fall madly in love with our Spectrum 5xb.
The comfortable XL-sized, hear-through cloth ear cushions fit comfortably around the ear, offering you a great audio experience while treating your ears like royalty. It's so comfortable that it can be used for multiple hours at a time. Even if you wear glasses.
And It Sounds Great
With the custom-built soundscape via 40mm SunDancer (SCS) units, you are able to pinpoint the direction of noises and movement throughout the game. Whether it's gunfire, music, or even the sound of someone getting pwned to pieces, the sound is incredible. But they do more than just make games sound great, they help you win. You'll hear everything worth hearing.
The SteelSeries AudioMixer
The SteelSeries Spectrum AudioMixer connects the SteelSeries Spectrum 5xb to the Xbox 360 and provides independent audio and voice volume controls. The independent volume controls offer maximum power over what you hear. You no longer have to waste time muting other players.
Since the SteelSeries AudioMixer is attached to your Xbox 360 controller, it is really easy to operate. You have the same level of control over your controller as you've always had, our AudioMixer doesn't interfere with normal operations in any way. We've made it really easy to have even more control; now you have independent volume controls, microphone controls and access to LiveMix, all within your thumbs reach.
Going somewhere? No problem. The SteelSeries Spectrum 5xb can be dismantled into 3 separate pieces. This makes transporting your headsets easy and safe. No more showing up at a tournament or a friends' house with broken equipment.
The secret sauce. SteelSeries LiveMix offers you a quick-button option to improve the balance of Xbox LIVE chat and in-game audio, so that voice communication is mixed and amplified over the sounds of gunfire and explosions. SteelSeries LiveMix allows you to hear everything that matters in team-based games; you simply click one button to activate this feature. We will balance the levels between Xbox LIVE chat and in-game audio on-the-fly, as the game develops around you, making it easier than ever before for you to hear your teammates.
Best of all, LiveMix works without having to increase the volume of the headset and risk headaches or hearing damage. Yay!
The headset features a durable, double-braided nylon cord. It's so durable that only tigers, lions and normal regular household cats with seriously sharp teeth can destroy it. Notice: no testing has been done with lions and tigers, but we respect them immensely and like referencing them in our product text. Rawwrr.
Hidden Microphone System
The SteelSeries signature retractable microphone system is also featured in the Spectrum 5xb, providing additional convenience and durability. The microphone is unidirectional and delivers clear voice communication for Xbox LIVE. Everyone will hear you loud and clear. Unless you choose to mute. But that's up to you.
