Rated 8 out of 10 by Collectadot 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.

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!
Rated 10 out of 10 by Freestyler Amazing!
This is deffinately the best $150 I've ever spent for my Xbox 360. These things make so much of a difference it's unreal. From the moment you get these things hooked up (takes about 5-10 minutes) you instantly hear every little nuance of the game. Every foot step, gunshot, explosion, engine noise, everything. You can instantly pin point where any sound is coming from. It's almost unfair to the enemy when you have these on. My only complaint is that they get tight on my head and I have to take them off and let my ears and head rest after about an hour or so. But I think that's because I have big ears that don't quite fit in the cups. I have found that if you wear a baseball cap it helps ALOT. You will NOT regret buying these, best of the best.
Rated 9 out of 10 by donjuan1313 Unreal sound,Kind of expensive,Worth every penny.
Let me make it clear I did not just go and buy these like you would a loaf of bread. I did online research in store research, Looked at at every pair of gaming headphones that are out there and im telling you these headphones dollar for dollar will Destroy tritons hands down. First off I will never buy a product made by mad catz AKA Triton, Why? If they cant make a ps3 controller I like and would use, then im surley not going to drop 170$ 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
Rated 10 out of 10 by Paiden28 Love the headset
I can hear other players on the the game that are behind me, to the side and, all around. I end up killing more people than I ever did without it.
This is the only headset that does the 7.1 surround so far that I see. There are wireless ones, but they only do the 5.1 surround sound max, as far as I can see as well.
The only thing that I don't like about it is that there are cables that get in my way some times, but the cable is long enough to stay on the ground. lol.
Other than that, I can also wear the head set for hours on end and they never end up being discomfortable. I also wore them while watcing anime on the PC and the I could hear characters to my right or left before they ended up on the screen which was very cool.

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.
Rated 8 out of 10 by HAppyGamertagmandudewomen 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).
Rated 9 out of 10 by NyteRider Outstanding!!!
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!!!
Rated 10 out of 10 by MaximusPrimeX7 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!
Rated 9 out of 10 by TheAmazingPig My first turtle beach, AWESOME!
The dpx21 is awesome. It had great surround sound and very easy to understand. The design itself was very good. But this product had some flaws. For example, the wires were too long and it was kinda hard to connect the wires but of its longness. And it is somewhat kind of loud. I just bought it today and it was awesome. I tested it out and my sister said it was loud even though i didnt put it on the max and she could hear it when i put it on. If you are going to buy this, beware of its wires. Overall i like this turtle beach,
