Afterglow Universal Prismatic Wireless Headset
Perks & Flaws
With this headset, the afterglow lights with a variety of colors makes this look like well worth over $100, but...it's actually not. The audio and bass output is astonishing, but there are problems for the mic when coming around a good 3-6 months of use. If you are some one that just loves to play so much on games online, practically a gamer that uses the headset everyday, this is definitely not what you should dip your money into. The durability from the mic itself doesn't last that long because of the simple fact that pulling the mic out from the headset on the side, actually creates a risk of messing with the wires too much, and creating a disconnection that MAY seem like the mic is working, but when in reality you're just talking to yourself.
Returning these to the store as they are sub-par. Sound quality is muffled and the sound cuts in and out at lower volumes. At higher volume, there is static. The chat volume doesn't raise the volume enough for you to hear the conversations in the game, and on the other side, your buddies hear you sounding like you are in a garbage can. Overall I am extremely disappointed with these and should have gone with my first choice, Turtle Beach PX4's.
I am extremely happy with this headset. I don't recommend using the "headphones" plug directly to your TV, otherwise you may hear some weird static. I connected them through my speaker system, and they sound amazing and clear. First game I played with them was GTA 5. When I was playing, the sound of the car was so real, I actually felt I was in it. Also, being able to change the color is a plus!! I recommend this headset to anyone!
im sticking with turtle beach
first of all i have always used turtle beaches (which i do reccomend) and when those gave out finally i had to look for something else. i wanted the same thing but i have an HDTV now so i looked for something that came with an adapter. i found this after looking a deciding it was good enough i purchased it and went home to try them out...right off the back i had issues my friends could barely hear me and when they did i sounded like a synthesizer or a robot i finally after a week tinkered enough so it worked then came the battery life issue..it would only last for an hour and a half after charging for 10 hours...then finally today started the playback cable issues where it would only work in a specific position THANK GOD it finally died so i could get something else cause i cant take afterglow anymore and i do not plan on getting another ever again
Personally, this is the best headset I have ever had. The Three audio modes are all great in their own respects. I have already suggested it to friends and plan to continue to do so! Amazing!
Good but bad
I love this headset but with me experience i had lots of trouble the modes and great the sound is great the mic is great but the thing that made me return was that it interrupted my connection, a lot. Not every game but most now if you have a wired connection it should not be a problem but for people going wireless PLEASE consider the following this distance is >100 ft and the 3 modes are great! but the thing is that you pay for what you get cheap but very troubleshooting the interruption with the internet connection is very very bad it kicks you out of games and it sometimes makes your voice very muffled and cracky. I would recommend this for a wired connection, not for a wireless internet connection .
Good but bad
Once I went to gamestop I found this. Then got it and enjoyed it alot. The pros about is its nice blue lights everytime u turn it on. The way you can walk quite a distance from it and still can hear the game or your friends. Also its buttons from behind like the game volume and the sound of your peers. The cons is that if your headset dies it makes a medium to loud sound and then shuts off if it isnt charged. Another thing is when u pull your headset wire where you can talk to people MAKE SURE you dont pull it to hard and if you keep on doing that it will most likely break and wont be able to talk to friends. It happened to me. Now im letting u know.
The design is the best on this headphone, I loved how I can change mode and is very confutable. The best i like about this headphone is that you can use it for iPhone or any mobile device too. The bad thing is when you want to talk on xbox live, you still have to plug in to the remote.
This headset will give you many things that you would want out of a headset. I went through 4 Turtle Beach® Headsets and a Triton. Either they blew out or they were defective. And the bass on this headset is outstanding! Whenever you play games like Mortal Kombat or COD, The bass is overwhelmingly strong. I'd highly recommend this headset for a PS3.
Terrible customer service by PDP
Bought this for my son but the mic never worked. Called the 800 number for PDP's customer service but was only directed to the website. The website was not much better as the live chat was not available and customer service was non-existent. Filled out a repair ticket on line and told them they had two days to contact me. Three days later, nothing. Finally, after 4 days I received an email saying that I would need to return the head set to PDP for replacement. Replacement would take 2-3 weeks! TERRIBLE customer service by PDP. I returned the head set to Gamestop and exchanged for a different company's product. SAVE YOUR RECEIPT if you buy this product!!!!
