GMX-1 Mixer could be a difference maker.
Skullcandy has a new headset out, and not only is it for the Xbox One, but it also includes an impressive Halo licensed design. More importantly though, the Skullcandy SLYR Halo Edition for the Xbox One is the first Skullcandy headset to be designed by famed headset maker ASTRO Gaming. The headset includes the GMX-1 Mixer, which connects the SLYR to the Xbox One controller. The entire kit was developed with input from 343 Industries, and thus the Halo design goes beyond the aesthetic to the actual audio and chat reproduction.
The newly redesigned Skullcandy SLYR Halo® Edition for Xbox One features the unique and powerful GMX-1 Controller-Mounted Mixer, which works with the SLYR headset to deliver game-to-voice balancing, volume control, and push-button mute. The Skullcandy SLYR Halo® Edition for Xbox One also features a new custom headset color and graphical treatment.
