Default Earforce headphones?

Anyone know where in Australia I can get these Xbox 360 headphones? - they do not ship them here. They would be ideal as you can hear voice and the game in the head phones.

Xbox 360 Wireless Headset

Also, anyone tried them or heard about them from anyone?

Only place i can think of is E-bay.

Than again maybe this could be a business opportunity. Thought about becoming the Australian distributor?

Thanks - I ordered 1 from Ebay. Last time I looked they did not have any, but I found some now.

I seem to die 4 times as much without headphones as I don't have a surround hookup where my 360 is. Downside, when I wear the headphones I cannot communicate. ( and give back some trash talk to the American kids)

I do have a little $5 dongle that accepts a mic in the 360 controller. I can clip a normal pc mic on my collar and wear my normal headphones, so will try that as well in the meantime.

I have also ordered Rainbow 6 v2, but for now online I am COD4ing.

How would you rate the sound quality? What did it end up costing you?

Are you sick of questions?

Doh! Sorry the way I read it I got the impression you had them already.

Look forward to your review.

Finally got them and I am very happy with them.

Mind you I have only played COD4 with them atm. It is good to hear the game and people sneaking around as well as being able to talk.

It took a bit to set up but finally figured it out. I have the HDMI cable so had to go back to the box to get the extra audio plug that was included and lucky I had some red and white audio cables lying around. (would need those if wasn't using HDMI)

As far as headphones, I think they are on par with others that I use for the stereo etc, however I would say they have more depth and seem to be able to play much louder. Pretty sure I am hearing things in game that I couldn't before, especially distant sounds. After a day I am now used to them.

The live voice is pretty good too and I can quickly mute myself. In fact, I usually keep it mute until I want to say something..

They are also comfortable and feel quite hearty (not cheap or flakey).
