The Xbox 360 Wireless Headset with Bluetooth is taking wireless communications to the next level with a sleek appearance that evokes the Xbox 360 console design, noise cancellation, and Bluetooth 3.0 technology. Easily switch from Xbox to Bluetooth mode to answer calls with the flip of a switch. Blue and green LED rings of light visually show which mode the device is in. The device comes with three sizes of ear gels and an ear loop to ensure a comfortable fit during extended gaming periods. The device allows up to eight hours of talk time and up to 300 hours of standby on a single charge.
