The delivery of the Thrustmaster 280CPX headset …

The great Harry Houdini could not have done better. It is simply amazing how much Thrustmaster can put in a relatively small carton.

Inside there is a inlay made out of recycled carton …

… which holds 3 audio cables, the control unit incl. connection cable, the swivel arm with the microphone included and various booklets.

Of course, the star of the evening must not be missing. The Thrustmaster 280CPX incl. a short connection cable.

All in all we can say in terms of delivery the Thrustmaster 280CPX can fully convince us. But did Thrustmaster really thought of everything? Let’s first take a look at the technical details.
