    Great bit of kit I said, well it was 'till I tried it on - tried being the operative word :(

    I know I'm really opening up to a complete p**s take here but my head is too big :clown:
    Unless there is a way to adjust the length of the mic (which I have tried to do to the point of breaking the damn thing) this is going to be useless for me.
    When I can eventually get it in place the mic is either digging in my chin or I'm eating the bloody thing! :laugh:

    Please someone else say they are having the same problem :blush:

    You do know the headset sits behind your head don't you?
    My brother used it to start with sitting on top of his head like a normal headset and thought i felt a bit wierd till he discovered his mistake :)
    If that's not it..bloody hell you must have a big head! ;)

    I don't find the headset too small (after a little bit of stretching!) but I do find that it's damned uncomfortable to wear with glasses. The regular MS one is fine, 'coz it's got the soft rubber over the ears, but the R6 headset just digs in. Ouch. I think I'll save the R6 one for guests!

    On that note, if I'm playing Moto GP on Live with a guest, will they be able to use the headset or not? If not, I think I'll avail of GAME's generous returns policy and get the regular R6 game.

    I guess it's just me then :(

    I really can't get the frickin' thing on at all without the mic bit in my mouth.
    Maybe they ran out of plastic when they made mine? :)

    You will have to change your XBL gamertay to "The Mekon". :rotfl:

    I'm in a similar situation to you though - massive head. The standard XBL headset just about fits me OK....

    No the headset is in a special pack for £10 more - Well worth getting as its very easy to brake the normal Xbox live headset, so a spare comes in handy. Amazon.co.uk are doing the special pack for £39.99 with free P+P
