July 26, 2011, By Christian Davis

When it comes to online gaming, communicating with your friends is essential to having the complete experience. If you’ve gone though various headsets and still aren’t quite satisfied, Microsoft may have one that you’ll love. Today, a new Bluetooth wireless Headset was announced as well as a brand new media remote.

The fact that the headset(shown above) is using Bluetooth technology, you can now go from talking with friends on Xbox LIVE to talking on your cell phone without changing headsets. You can even connect the headset to your PC as well. Switching from Xbox LIVE to a phone call and vice-versa is as easy as pushing a button and really simplifies things for those who don’t want the hassle of various peripherals. Battery life is nice and comes with 8 hours of talk time and up to 300 hours on standby.

Also coming out this fall is the new Xbox 360 Media Remote. Consoles today are used for much more than gaming and the Xbox 360 is no exception to that. The remote will control the Xbox 360 Dashboard, DVD, CD playback, navigates through Netflix, Hulu Plus and any other available media on the Xbox 360.

The Bluetooth headset will be available this November for $59.99 and the Remote will also be available for this November for $19.99.
