Rated 4 out of 10 by pridesblood Good quality, poorly constructed
I bought these 3 months ago. The part that plugs the microphone into the controller stripped a month later, exposing the wires. Now I have to use electric tape so that people can hear me, and even then it's staticy and cuts out. It sounds crisp and clear and is great for sound, but you need to be very careful with the part that plugs into the controller, and I mean really careful. I'd advise getting a cheap turtle beach like the x12 or find another good deal online. Great sound quality but if your going to use it to talk, be extremely ( and I treated this like a baby so I'm talking about huge amounts of care) careful and you should, I hope, be fine. Otherwise it's great, it plays game sounds clearly, has a great mic bending design, and feels sturdy other then the wiring, although I do wish it would play sound through both my Xbox and tv.
Rated 9 out of 10 by Sammy777 Very Good Buy
I bought this headset just cause it was cheap. But I tell you it's very worth the buy. I'm guessing in the reviews they do some weird things with it and not take care of it. The sound quality is pretty good and very above average (In my opinion). The design is really light and the only problem is the cable is to long. Fortunately for me, I use this headset for pc, so I didn't need to undo the twine that holds the rest of the cable length. (This may be a problem to console gamer's if they don't take care of their stuff very well). The mic actually works and as I said before, I guess you need to take better care of your stuff. But there is just another small downside. If you wear these head phones for a little to long, your eyes might start to hurt just a little bit, (Since the design was to fit exactly in your ears). But that could only be me :) So these are the Pros- Very light, great design quality, mic very good, sound and bass control added to the headphones for console systems, and sound quality is excellent. Cons- Cable length (may be a problem for console gamer's who don't take care of their things well) If you wear them to much your ears might hurt a little bit Overall- Excellent Buy
Rated 9 out of 10 by CoDguy2123 Good Durable Headset for Semi-Hardcore Gamer
I got this for xbox 360. This is a great headset for a casual-hardcore mix. The sound is very good and you can hear better than the normal TV. It also has SURROUND SOUND! I was pleasantly surprised when i found this out. The microphone is a tad bit sensitive but that helps in a way because it always picks up your voice. The only problem is all the WIRES! If you are getting this for pc they shouldn't be a problem, but the xbox has some cause for concern. you cant really go within 5 feet of the xbox so if you dont play right infront of the tv this wont work for you. Anyway, it works great, so you should get this. if you have problems with connection leave a comment and i may be able to help.
Rated 9 out of 10 by Folie Love them. Definitely satisfied!
I just bought these the other day, and I already love them. I don't see how anyone can complain about these when they are at such a low price. The bass in them is incredible, and the sound is so good that it blocks out most outside noise pretty well too. Also, I'm a female and a lot of times headsets don't fit me right. Turtle Beaches were too big on me, and it made it very uncomfortable, but these fit comfortably so I was definitely happy about that! My only complaint is that I can't hear myself in the headset when I talk, so I feel like I'm pushing to talk because I literally about can't hear myself. That's the only reason these get a 9 out of 10 instead a 10 out of 10 for me.
Rated 9 out of 10 by ComradeElric Great value
This headset is worth the 20$, even if I payed the regular price of 30$, I would be satisfied. If you can't afford the Turtle Beach X12s, this is the next best thing. They are relatively comfortable for long gaming sessions. The mic is high quality, but I did notice it picked background noise and the headsets audio, causing feedback for other players occasionally. One downside is the mic jacks adapter, it can be easily broken off in your 360s controller if you aren't paying attention when handling the controller. As always, follow the instructions when setting up your headset and it will work fine. (Looking at you people who rate products low because of your own incompetence ^^)
Rated 10 out of 10 by LesIncomparables For $30, this headset is nothing short of amazing!
Still hard to believe this in only a $30 headset. I owned several Turtle Beaches over the years and while they are great, clear and comfortable headsets I gotta say that this headsets sound quality is absolutely outstanding. The sound quality is almost as clear, but definitely sounds fuller. And it has bass! Plenty of bass! Bass was always something my TBs lacked. Not the best looking headset, but the sound is just amazing and awesome. At this price nothing can beat it. Oh btw the mic is sensitive and great too.
Rated 4 out of 10 by CoDguy2123 (UPDATED) WAS good, but then.....
At first, the headset worked like a charm. Stereo sound and good mic made me think this was a GREAT deal. Even though the cables were a HASSLE, i got over it. But then,4 months later, The wires, which twisted and turned in every way imaginable, suddenly stopped working. The mic cord decided it wasn't going to pick up ANY sound anymore. I should of known it was bad, considering that their main focus is PC and their website is trash. Save yourself the hassle and buy those turtle beach X12's everyone has.
Rated 6 out of 10 by AlbinoTheMexican Great for the price
this headset is exactly what you'd think it would be...cheap. i bought the headset when it was $30 expecting it to be comparable to turtle beaches. I was wrong. the sound is okay, the mic works better on xbox than PC, and the hookup is just as confusing as any other headset. overall, it's great for the $20 price, but if you're looking for a slightly more expensive one, I'd save up for the Earforce X11 or X12s
Rated 9 out of 10 by jayberry3220 Great buy!
Ive used many headsets before and this one tops them all especially because of price and quality. first of all the qualitiy is amazing. as good as a turtle beach but just cheaper and more cost efficient. the only down side to it is the design. while the design is alright the turtle beach still physically looks better. but all and all id pick this over a turtle beach any day. because of the price and quality

This headset has an overpowered bass that sounds bad when played loudly or with something with medium to high bass. The amp does not work with the pc (not tested with xbox yet). It sounds horrible with techno, ESPECIALLY DUBSTEP. The good thing is that it sound great with games like Battlefield 3 ect. It wraps around your ears which is comfortable, and it almost gets rid of all sounds around you.
