Mad Catz has finalized a fairly sweet deal with Microsoft for exclusive rights to produce wireless gaming headphones for the Xbox 360.

Those powerful headsets will be equipped with Dolby 5.1 technology. Mad Catz will also be working on other headsets for the Xbox 360 that are tied down by wires within the Tritton series, but no exclusivity there.

The fruits of this agreement will be seen during the holiday season later this year.
