I've been reading on the Elite 800s all day. Looks like they will only offer support for the PS3/PS4. They are releasing a headset for the XBOne, but it appears to be a lower model the Stealth 500x, which is similar to the Stealth 400 they will make for Playstation. I really like the potential of the Elite 800 with the TAC. I'm wondering how it will compare to the Astro Mixamp and headphones/mic (Q701). I wish there was more info available. I'm afraid to pull the trigger now because I think the Elite 800s sound like they are going to be awesome when they come out.
Okay just keep in mind that these are supposed to be the same $300 price as the A50. When you get a lot more doo-dads for the same price, something has to give. Likely it's going to be sound quality. Since the A50 doesn't have the best SQ to begin with, I wouldn't get your hopes up.
Now the standalone TAC is what really interests me (and folks on this thread) because it's looking to be a Mixamp-killer on paper. Guess we'll find out in 6 months...
Best Buy has a product spec up for the Elite 800's which I swear wasn't up earlier in the day. Anyway, they have a release date as 10/24/14, not sure the accuracy but it's something, maybe the TAC will be at or around there as well. I'm drooling over these.
Eh, I wouldn't get your hopes up. TB doesn't make the best headphones. If you're in the market today, get a sweet set of cans and hope for the TAC to be a good upgrade.
