In the not so distant past, we took a look at the X-Tatic SX stereo headset from manufacturer Sharkoon and whilst we thought it was a great product, it wasn’t compatible with a well known platform. This is of course the PlayStation 3. The SX headset was a prime candidate for PC usage as well as Xbox 360, especially with its Xbox styling in white and green, but for PS3 users they would have to look around for something else.

The something else comes in the form of the X-Tatic SP headset from Sharkoon which is very similar in design to the SX baring the colour scheme but is compatible with PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 as well.

The SP seems to be more geared towards the PlayStation audience with its black colour scheme but with full compatibility across the board, we feel this may be the one to get for gamers who use multiple platforms. Let’s find out shall we.
