    The Xbox One headset is here

    Aquí están los auriculares de la Xbox One

    What you see in the picture is the official wireless gaming headset for Microsoft’s new console, the Xbox One.

    Its simple design is not too different from the Xbox 360’s; it features speaker and microphone, volume control and a mute button connecter to the console’s controller.

    The oficial headset will not be only one, though, since others have already been announced, like Turtle Beach’s, as well as some other devices for the Xbox One such as Polk Audio’s speakers or the Mad Catz controller, just to name a few.

    Some may think that the console’s price (500 USD / Euros) would mean Microsoft would offer a better headset tan the one that will be included with the console. We’ll suppose it will simply get the job done, without offering an extraordinary sound quality. If you want ‘a little extra’ you’ll have to spend a few more bucks.

    ASUS Vulcan PRO vs Creative Aurvana Live! (CAL!) Gaming Headset comparison

     

    In last article, we do a datial review about ASUS Vulcan PRO Gaming Headset, For comparative purposes , we tried the Creative Aurvana Live! headphones, While not a headset (no mic) it is a good example in regards to audio for a range close to $ 80, Compared to approximately $ 130 for the ASUS Vulcan PRO in Chile.

    Creative Aurvana Live! (CAL!) Gaming Headset

    Sound

    As for the sound, the CAL! have a notable advantage with respect to detail and soundstage.

    Both headphones, have their fair share of the low registers, perfect for a gamer. However, the CAL! provides a more controlled, deeper bass than the Vulcan PRO.

    In the middle the CAL! is also superior to the Vulcan PRO. The middle area of ​​the CAL! is nice and warm, and unlike the Vulcan PRO, the voices are heard clearly.
    In the area of ​​high, both have shortcomings, the CAL! has a warmer less aggressive sound than the Vulcan PRO. Yet the CAL! has better detail in this area.

    Games

    Performance in the game is not so distant from the “musical” field, although the latter requires a higher level of detail and requirement than in the game itself.

    The first impression in the “battlefield” is that in the CAL! sound feels more “free” and not as “forced” as it is in the Asus, this may be due to a more open soundstage by CAL! and the emphasis on insulation at all costs seen in the Vulcan PRO. Despite this, the “positioning” is not affected but clearly not the same sound of the steps or distance shots. Not everything is dreary, however, for Vulcan PRO, because with these headphones is gained a more entertaining experience in terms of explosions and gunfire.

    Insulation

    Here the Creative headphones lose the battle, as these have negligible insulation, in favor of a better soundstage. For example a fan 5 feet away from the CAL! heard without problems; however, with Vulcan PRO even passive insulation achieves a significant decrease in fan noise, without the activation of the ANC, the trump card of our Asus.

    Comfort

    While neither headphone is a nightmare to use, clearly the CAL! wins in terms of comfort. The Vulcan Pro is much more robust than the CAL!. Also the Vulcan PRO is much more rigid than the CAL!, Plus they have a weight of 200 gr., Compared to about 340 gr with battery included the Vulcan PRO.
    Regarding the cable, the CAL! is lighter and thinner, which may irritate less considering the stiffness, width and extent of the Vulcan PRO cable.
