The Microsoft Xbox 360 comes packaged with a headset that plugs into your console's controller, allowing semi-wireless gaming. However the sound quality is less than crystal clear. While Xbox 360 doesn't support internal Bluetooth, a headset can still be connected to the console by connecting a Bluetooth receiver to the headphone jack of your controller. This allows truly wireless communication during your gaming, with all the sound quality your headset allows.
