News – Xbox 360 Headset Getting Improved Sound Quality

The Xbox 360 is getting an update in the autumn that will improve the sound quality of the headset Microsoft has announced.

The upgrade will improve the codec and audio infrastructure, which doesn’t make a lot of sense to me, though whatever it all does it makes for clearer audio, which is all that matters in the end.

At the Edinburgh Interactive Festival, Xbox Live Europe general manager Jerry Johnson had this to say “It’s time for us to move on, especially if we want to think about broadening – a crackly headset on the top of your head – not what people think of when they talk about popular entertainment.”

The upgrade is set to arrive around the same time as Kinect.
