Universal Afterglow Wireless Headset
REAL honest review (revised)
check out the pic..so this is a real review..for people that want to know how the specs perform..im listening to music right now and it sounds incredible, they are just like my skull candy aviators....easy as ever to just plug your phone or mp3 in and just hit play or play and wait for a call..in game iv never met something so clean, the way the sound pops, exploisions smh, and when emp's go off in cod its the most wicked theater rumble you could ever hear..at first i wasnt sure about putting them on cuz the extension to fit different heads is different but it u get used to it the 2nd time u put them on..i had to return a repair and have pdp themselves send me a pair cuz my friends said i sounded horrible..i got this pair back and told my friends i was on my old headset so they wouldnt be bias and they said i sound fine now..the volume dials are easier than turtles, they are lighter than turtles..the blue lights up my ceiling and whats cool is i can turn the lighting off if the battery is low or just to shut it off, i havnt needed to extend the mix i figure just keep it in..again, THE SOUND IS OFF THE WALLS..i play borderlands 2, cod all the stuff to rly test them out and i keep finding new things it does..you know how music cycles between both ears? it makes the game do it to! so its just insane..1 cord, no dumb stuff its allllll built int he headphones so all they need is a reciever to pick up game sound which is a ncie little cord from your tv to the xbox usb..BUY THEM, if you have a problem fine w e they are new you know, get a replacement i called pdp witht he 800 number the headset gave so they get true feedback send out a tested pair..either way amazing, i gave the design a 9 only cuz i think they could have made the ehadband smaller but still kicks
Great for gaming, producing, or recreation
Overall, the headphones are sweet. I am a video producer and audio engineer, as well as an avid gamer. I wanted something that would give me clear audio and booming bass. These work fantastic for picking up enemy footsteps or for EQ'ing your bass guitarist. They will rattle your eardrums and rock your socks off. My fellow audio engineers and gamer friends are astonished by the overall quality and mesmerized by the wireless and universal capabilities. I traded up from Turtle Beach px21's that I used for a day an could not stand the background noise and electrical feedback. They do lack comfort for larger heads due to the lack of adjustability; however, it is nothing unbearable. If you want quality prosumer headphones to give you an edge, or to crank your music, then these are for you.
Best gaming headsets out there!
I've wanted to let you guys know that this is an actual review of my PDP wireless afterglow headsets I rated this 10/10 because these are the best headsets ever the guy at GameStop said that that the headsets were too "Plastic" I simply told him "Look man I know what I'm getting okay?" He tried to recommend turtle beach x32 but I told him "No no no!" Haha best choice I've ever made is these headsets I took a pic of my headsets to show you that is is a real review so you gamers that do all nighters and have a cat etc...etc...etc... These are the headsets for you no lie best headsets ever and best price and quality best $100.00 I've ever spent..
Best Headset Ever!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
When i got the headset i was so excited and i had it for 2 weeks and its still great. BUY THE HEDSET. its worth the money!!!!!!!!!!!!
All around wonderful device
I bought this headset because I was looking for a wireless headset so I would have to deal with all the cords tangled around my feet while play my Xbox. I saw these online and the style alone caught my eye. The range on them is ridiculous I've walked all around my house and even parts of the yard and didn't lose signal. The comfort took me a few hours to get used to because I was so used to my old turtle beaches but now when I put them on they feel great. They hold a charge for about 6-7 hours of straight gameplay and then you can plug them into your console and charge and use them at the same time. The only bad thing about these I have found was that the voice quality I put out isn't as high as my turtle beach x12. Several people have asked me when we were in party chat why my mic sounded like I was in a big room or why is my face so far from the mic, when really it was right near it. Besides that, probably one of my better purchases of the last year, great device, highly recommend.
Amazing and Affordable
When you first open the package and hold these in your hands, you'll immediately feel how well they are built; solid and sturdy. Nothing about them seems cheap or skimped on. And when you put them on your head you will immediately feel how comfortable they are; large PU leather pads are the perfect shape for the human head.. Then, when you play games, music or movies... you will be in awe of its amazing sound. All levels of noise are blended together so well that you'll hear everything. I challenge you to play a game without them and then, again, with them; you will pick up on subtle sounds otherwise lost. The only gripe i have about them is the large clear plastic piece that holds the two headphones together. They look a little bulky and silly on your head...but who cares really? It is purely a cosmetic gripe, but a gripe nonetheless. Also i wish there were a way to turn the blue LEDs off, if there is a way, it's not obvious. I highly recommend these to anyone who loves sound.
First let me make something very clear. I am an Game Stop SMGR. There, now that we have that on the table here we go. Myself along with every SMGR in the company received a pair of these headsets for free this yr. as part of our Conference PKG in San Antonio, TX. It's PDP. It's Afterglow. I honestly didn't really care. The lights are cute and all, but performance is something that has always been lacking. Well, after being stuck traveling for 21 Hrs. and putting these head sets on so I could drown out the noise of the airport I can tell you all that I will be pushing these head sets onto every customer that steps through my door these holidays. Crisp clean sound, Deep bass along with a clean sharp design and a low price point for what you get and these things are GREEEEEEEEEEEAAAAAAaaaatttttttt. Seriously, buy them. My only complaint is that for someone who wears glasses, I can sometimes have an ear cup push the side of my glasses into my temple which can cause an head ache. No other complaints.
Would be good if more comfortable
My little brother got this headset at Gamestop. They look like a fairly nice headset if you're into really flashy stuff, and $90 isn't that bad for a wireless set. However, when I tried them on, they immediately felt very uncomfortable and I was surprised that there was no way to adjust the band. I'd say I have a pretty average size head for an adult male and these were definitely too tight on me. Even my 12 year old brother said he thought they weren't comfortable, but he might have a larger than average head for his age. For PS3 and PC players, I would look at the Playstation PULSE headset. They are in a different league as far as quality and comfort go, and they've been selling for only 10-25% more than these lately, despite having a much higher MSRP. Last but not least, this Afterglow headset uses a lot of wires connected between the TV and the console. I like that both the PS3 wireless headsets only require plugging in a USB dongle, which helps cut down on wires.
Great headsets, worth the price
I was looking around for a good pair of wireless headsets and stumbled upon the PDP Afterglow Wireless headsets. After spending a few hours playing with them (xbox 360/PC), I gotta admit, they are worth the price, although they are far from perfect. For starters, the design is a bit clunky, but it's not a dealbreaker in my opinion, the thing that really bugged me was the mic, sure it has a nice quality, but it picks up noise from people that are nearby, and when I mean nearby, I mean the fact that I'm on my room and my grandparents are in my living room, and even though I can't hear them, my xbox live party can hear everything they're saying, and the fact that since I use a fan in my room, the sound on the mic becomes unbearable, but that was to be expected. Besides those minor complaints, the sound quality is amazing, they are really comfortable and the fact that I can go to the kitchen and never lose connnection to the headsets is incredible. A must buy if your looking for a low priced wireless headset.
Good product, one major issue.
I am currently using the headset with my computer at this very moment. The sound options are great, and they fit comfortably. I really do enjoy the lighting of the headset, it makes me feel.. cool. One major problem I personally have though, is the fact that there is NO MICROPHONE MONITORING like on a turtle beach headset. When I say microphone monitoring, I mean, you can't hear yourself. This is a problem because I live with roommates, and if I'm up late at night playing games, and I've got the volume of the headset up, and I try talking, I can't hear myself. So I end up talking a little too loudly, and might wake someone up or something of the sorts. Don't get me wrong, this is a great headset, but I was told that these do in fact have a microphone monitoring feature. I feel that this feature is essential in any gaming headset such as these. Although, if I am wrong, and there is in fact a microphone monitoring feature, please correct and tell me how to enable it.
