    I still have and use my Halo 3 ODST xbox 360 controller, mainly for PC nowadays. Still like the design. :)

    Gavin is 100% right about what he said about Digital audio being worse than analogue, that said, all Audio that we hear is converted from Digital to Analogue because sine waves aren't digital, digital is limited to square and saw waves.  That also said, the DAC's (Digital to Analog Converter) used in idevices are cheap and nasty and colour the sound majorly, which is why apple made the move they did, by doing that they've made it so that companies like Sennheiser can make Lightning port USB powered sound cards for the iphone that make it's shitty sound quality 100% better.  That also said, I'd rather spend $200 on a Cowon and an extra $100 or so for a shitty cheap phone than spend $900 for an iphone.  But that's just me.  

    Also on a side note, the only truly analogue form of music reproduction these days is records (Vinyl) played through a direct sound system, if you run them through a modern amplifier it's likely being converted to digital to add effects and surround sound.

    The best controller in my opinion is the Forza 6 Xbox One controller.

    Michael spent more money on an individual controller than I'm willing to spend on a console, controller and game bundle. That's some food for thought I guess.

      Gotta love the extremes of online comments.   One of the worst companies on this planet?  Seriously?   Shall we just ignore Time Warner Cable and Comcast then?  You know, the ones with the worst customer satisfaction rating every year for the last decade?   How about some Japanese Whaling company?

      Outside Xbox are MUCH worse. Watch their most recent Battlefront video. It begins with them screaming, crashing into each other, and apologizing.

    Maybe it's just me but I feel like the automated calls have gotten worse recently. Like I never used to receive this many but now it's practically nonstop to where I just don't answer my phone, a real problem when you're looking for a job.

      You can sign up for the do not call list, at which point it's illegal for companies, (aside from certain things like charities), to call you for the purposes of marketing. I'm on the do not call list and have been for years, and I don't know that I've gotten an automated call or telemarketer since I signed up.....

      That's the thing though, I've been registered since 2003. My mom registered it before even handing me my first cellphone so I have no idea what the problem is.

    I got an elite based solely on thier recommendation when it came out and it was unbelieveably great for 3 months and 6 days and then while playing my right bumper was all of a sudden loose and that was when i realized how shitty the bumpers design on the elites were i also learned that the warrenty for a $160 contoller that i expected to last for years was only for three months. i have since fixed it myself but it is shocking how something like that could happen and as i found out while researching a fix how often the same issue occured at the 3-4 month period for so many people without a word from xbox other than just buy a new one

      Yes, they know that but their argument is that you can't charge your phone and use wired headphones at the same time

      @Mattmac09 Didn't they show that you can charge and listen to headphones at the same time?

      @IamNyan You can charge your phone and use wireless headphones at the same time but y charge and use wired headphones together you need to buy other adaptors for the phone which in the end just costs more and more money

      @IamNyan Not to mention that the wireless earbuds have a battery life of their own and unless Apple has pulled off a miracle, have vastly inferior sound quality to any decent priced wired headphones.....

    The lighting connector probably has analog out pins (much like usb c) which basically means the adapter will only be different in looks when compared to the 3.5mm jack.

    Funny thing, we haven't had "analog" audio for decades now, if not a century. "Digital" has taken over as the main method of audio transmission whenever we started using the headphone jack as well as it was the first method of long distance communication for telephony audio. We consider traditional headphones to be analog when in fact it's using a circuit and amplifier to process the electrical signal and convert it into a waveform that the speaker will reproduce. Wireless audio is only as good as the speakers that are being used and the method they use to send and receive the signal. Wired holds the advantage for latency, however with how fast we've made wireless tech, it's nearly indistinguishable from the wired counterparts. If you don't want to believe that bluetooth is just as good, if not better than, traditional headphones, that's your choice. But with how many advantages it has, bluetooth is here to stay and will provide the same exact quality at the very least (varying only by brand). If you want a gaming equivalent, look at wireless controllers. Wireless controllers have the same exact disadvantages, yet we use them regularly and the industry even made the switch on their own because of how well the controllers sold during the previous generation (granted PS3 was on board from the beginning). I'm only saying all of this because it is a fallacy to believe that wired will "always" be better.

    gav: the digital to analog converter is your music player app. <3

    geoff: im sorry to say this but get a bluetooth aux thing (jabra makes one i have from like 2006) this IS a downgrade and it sucks but its the only alternative i know of and will let you charge/listen at the same time

      Watch a year from now, the biggest selling point of the iPhone 8 is that it has a headphone jack again.

      also... why did i get downvoted for explaining where the D/A converter in iphones is and also offering a solution to a new problem?

      All honesty, Samsungs are pretty shit too. Nexus 6x, while a little big, is the best phone I've ever used. Such a clean OS.

      Because they like them? It bewilders me how people care so much for what other people do. If they're happy with iOS and apple products that's on them. Use what you want.

      I'm using a 2015 Moto X, couldn't be happier with it. My mother uses an iPhone 6S and loves it. People are all different. It's all good.

    Seriously though, I would love to get an Elite controller. Maybe in Red.
