PX4 Universal Wireless Headset
Alright headset, definitely not worth $150.
I bought this headset a little over a week ago and have to say, the design and feel of the headset is great. However I have had a few problems with the headset already. The first thing I noticed was that the contents of the box didn't have much to help me in terms of setting the headset up/pairing them to my PS4. The turtle beach website has a good guide, but it would have been nice to have directions in the box. Next, for a $150+ retail headset, the sound was OK. I have to say the features of changing angles of sound in the front and rear is awesome, and the EQ/limiter options are great, but the sound isn't as crisp and clear as I'd like for the price. As for the major problem I encountered, I noticed my headset will work for a while (about 20-45 minutes) before the sound starts cutting out and getting choppy and distorted, almost like a CD when it skips. Turning the headset off and on doesn't fix the problem, and it will only go away by restarting my console, which is a huge inconvenience. I'm not sure if this is just a defect in my headset in particular, but I will be returning mine to check out other options. I hope my review will help a few people in their buying decisions.
WORST MIC QUALITY IN THE WORLD! GET THE PX22
After having a few tests with the headsets my friends could barely hear me and the surround sound isn't to die for. I recommend to save ur money and just get the turtle beach PX22 good quality headsets even the mic is good. Its like the ps4 version of the XOFOUR's for the xbox one. And also the PX22 is only $60 not $150 dollars!?
160 bucks of GARBAGE!
So i decided i would stop cheaping out and by one nice headset instead of multiple cheap ones as i have many different consoles. For starters the BLUETOOTH doesnt work on my ps4. I connected to to my cell using the provided cable and it cuts out every other word. It worked with the xbox one ok but even with the MICROSOFT ADAPTOR i couldnt chat without the kinect. It worked the best on my xbox 360 but after playing for like 5 hrs straight the transmitter just cut off. Keep in mind that this is a week after my purchuse. To top my experience off, turtle beach wanted me to pay shipping and handling, which added up to roughly 20 bucks for a replacement. So 159.99 plus tax plus 20 more bucks and a 2-3 week wait without a headset. This is the last pair of turtle beaches i will ever buy.
Good Headset for all but PS4
Game audio sounds amazing, but it will on off for a second at random times. For 120 bucks or more that's unacceptable. I am planning on selling this headset and getting the Sony Gold. I love Turtle Beach but this headset is no good for PS4 due to lacking blue tooth capabilities. However, on PS3 or 360 it should be decent.
awesome but a few things need to be fixed
I bought this headset for me. It is a great headset. The only big thing that bothers me is that it is very hard and confusing to set up. I do not think it is worth 119 bucks but it is still a good headset. It is by far the most comfortable headphones/headset i've ever had. Once in a while the sound stutters but other than that it is fantastic. And the sound quality is fantastic.
Great surround sound !!
I purchased these for my PS4 last week and they sound great.
My only complaint is I wish they were a little bit louder. You can crank the volume up all the way and the sound is crystal clear but I wish it went another notch or two volume wise.
It would also be nice if Playstation releases a patch so you don't need a chat cable from the headset to the controller to chat online.
These are also great for my android cell phone bluetooth so I can answer my phone through the headset with the push of a button.
Pass on this headset
there are alot of things wrong with this over priced headset. my main problem with them is the pain they cause after only wearing them for a short time. i dont have huge jumbo ears either, they hurt all around the ear, and seem to squeeze the head. the sound quality is a joke as well, i was much more satisfied with the previous model, the Px3, thats why i seemed glad to buy these. the px3 is ALOT better and ALOT cheaper. dont buy these, unless u want poor sound quality and a migraine headache with sore ears after playing call of duty for one hour.
This set of headphones are the best I have bought by far!! Sound Quality is great, comfort is great and also very user friendly.
Dont understand people and bad reviews
I bought these when the ps4 came out, and must say they've been great. I do have an issue with the chat cable to use them as a mic, but thats because sony isnt releasing a patch for them. The price is a tad steep i think maybe 30$ less would be perfect. The design is great i play online or watch movies a lot, probably 2-4 hours a day and they are very comfortable. I've had no issues with sound cutting in and out, the time i have was playing nba 2k14 which is because the game not the headset as others are having this issue. The sounds are great, no problems like other people are complaining about sound cutting in and out, they've been solid. i do love how you can turn the ears so they lay flat when i put them down or have them around my neck. The adjustments to change how the sound comes through for different directions are great. Sorry for the grammar and non paragraphs.
Poor for the price.
I decided to give these a try since my official PlayStation Pulse headset does not work (as of yet) with the PS4. Setup was straight forward and easy, not as comfortable as the Pulse headset (PX4 a little tight by comparison) and sound quality was sub-par for the price. Audio sounds far too thin on any EQ ("tone") and surround setting. Trying different EQs to boost bass just winds up adding a slight reverb to the mids and highs and really doesn't improve bass performance all that much, which is extremely poor to begin with. The PlayStation Pulse will be a far better buy when the PS4 is patched to get it working. I do not recommend this product.
