Ear Force DPX21 5.1/7.1 Surround Sound Wired Headset with Chat
Great Sound Quality, Sub-par Build Quality
While I will not deny that these are amazing sounding and the mic quality is awesome, the construction is a little bit iffy. The ear cups are held on by a tiny piece of plastic about 3mm wide and 1mm thick. This allows the ear cups to move and rotate and all but the slightest bit of pressure will snap them in a heartbeat. I am an adult and very careful with my expensive hardware such as these but that does not exclude me from having accidents. I was accidentally sitting on the cord and went to place them on the table in front of me when a friend came in. As I did SNAP the ear cup attached to the cord broke and was hanging by a tiny little wire. I have fixed it with a little JB Stick Weld and it works fine. The other ear cup has since broken while taking the headset off and I have had to fix it as well. Overall I am satisfied with the headset I just wish I did not have to ghetto-rig them to continue to use them.
its the best thing id recommend to anyone
ITS PERFECT I LOVE IT. the only thing u need to do is just take care of it like all other headsets. but this is the real deal ill recomend these headsets to anyone who loves shooter type games. my last thing to say is that its better than any other headset i ever used.
Unreal sound,Kind of expensive,Worth every penny.
Let me make it clear I did not just go and buy these like you would a loaf of bread. I did online research in store research, Looked at at every pair of gaming headphones that are out there and im telling you these headphones dollar for dollar will Destroy tritons hands down. First off I will never buy a product made by mad catz AKA Triton, Why? If they cant make a ps3 controller I like and would use, then im surley not going to drop 170$ on thier gaming headphones MAD CATZ = JUNK. With that point being made you also need to be aware what ever headphones you decide to buy once you place them on you head you CAN NOT RETURN THEM,So make sure you get the ones you really like or can afford.Now to the turtle beach DPX21 Surround sound headphones They are light,comfortable even after 15 rounds of black ops,and are 100% not fair to your enemy's. Your kills will increase no doubt about. I have had these bad boys for two weeks now and can never go back.The sound will blow your mind.Buy these as soon as you get paid. And just to let you know this review was done by someone who knows technology and how it works,Im 29 with a masters degree in computer engineering so take my word for it these things are SWEET. oh yea I use these for the PS3
You would think your TV already has good enough sound, but you're wrong. Surround sound is amazing! It really puts you in the game. Although it was kinda wierd at first, because it really does sound like some one is behind you. There's nothing like playing a FPS, and waiting for some one to make the mistake of making a sound. You really can hear everything. There's a couple things I don't like about this particular headset. There's always a slight hiss, and you can't get rid of it no matter how much you mess with the settings. I don't like having all the wires, but the reviews for a wireless headset were full of bad reviews. Go out, and get a headset with surround sound. You won't regret it. Don't worry about the haters. If you're not cheating! You're not trying!
Above all the rest! A+
After reading reviews, days of research, and trying different sets out, I found these to be far superior to others. The sound is excellent, you can hear everything that is going on around you, not just in FPS's like COD: Black Ops, but also in any other game that supports Dolby Surround Sound. The sound quality is better than words can describe, although the price is a bit much, if your willing to put down the coin, your looking at the best of the best.Take it from somebody who has really done his research, for the hardcore gamer, this is for you!
I just bought these headphones to replace my slightly worn Turtle Beach P21's, which I loved btw. I decided on the DPX21's after trying Sony's wireless set(not a fan) and Turtle Beach P11's, which GS had in store, but are more entry level headphones. The DPX21's are the definition of intense gaming. I strapped these on last night for the first time playing Battlefield 3, and found myself ducking multiple times because of helicopters buzzing by me and the sound of bullets whizzing by. As far as wired headsets go, look no further. This will be the last set you ever want to buy!!!
DPX21 is EXCELLENT
I've bought two sets of DPX21's so far and have not had a single problem with either. The sound quality for the price is amazing; and, since they're wired headphones, I don't have to worry about buying batteries! Also, I've had issues in the past with feedback and network interference while using wireless headsets in conjunction with wi-fi internet. For the price, you can't beat this AWESOME headset!!!
Good Sound quality, Bad Build.
I really enjoyed the performance of this headset. The sound was great and the clarity of the chat was amazing. There are a few flaws with this headset though. Though the simplicity of the idea of changing game and chat volume with knobs, they were too easy to turn and i found myself having to re-adjust them everytime i played, due to them hitting something and turning themselves. Another flaw was that the headset is not very sturdy. One of my speaker's plastic snapped where it connected to the overhead strap, causing it to stick out and not fit snugly on my head ( Which it did before).
These headsets are dope. Not your standard entry level heatset so the price is high but every penny well spent. The sound out of these are excellent so long as your not wanting to blast the bass and the volume (sound gets a little distorted). Comfortable for long game sessions that dont last over 6+ hrs. Wires can be a hassle if not kept in check, i used the bread ties that came with the headset. Overall review- 9/10
"I Hear You..."
Game Changer? Cheater? Hacker.... These are all the things I have been called since buying this product. One of the best investments any Hardcore Gamer should not be with out. The DPX21 is the best headset I have ever owned to date, with the 5.1 to 7.1 DD surround sound you will hear EVERYTHING... and I mean everything. Hearing those footsteps that eluded you with your 2D sound coming from your TV is now expanded in 3D, know where there coming from before you even look. This headset is a Game Changer. ((Pros and Cons)) (Pros) - 5.1 to 7.1 DDSS / Extreme BASS / Total Customization (Turn Up Chat, Game, Bass interdependently) // (Con) - 2+ Hours of Gameplay can start to strain your ears.
