The headset is sleek, glossy black, with a padded vinyl headband and plush earpads. Unusually, the headset is powered via USB, yet connects to a standard 3.5mm jack for audio. It is definitely less common to have both where one is usually preferred over the other, but this is the inevitable nature of the beast where multi-platform hardware is concerned.
The microphone as previously mentioned is detachable, attaching securely below the left ear. There is an in-line controller with a mute switch, volume controls for the mic and headset, and an input for the XBox controller connector.
