U.S. Army Universal Gaming Headset with 3D Effect
It works perfectly well, and excellent
From the day I got this product for girlfriend, whenever the both of us are playing online I hear her loud, she also receive perfect feedback when I'm responding.
Great sound quality, great durability, Amazing.
This headset is, hands down, one of the best headsets I've used. It's an amazing upgrade from my old Turtle Beach Z11's, with far superior sound quality and durability. Very often, my microphone breaks, but it hasn't even shown a single sign of breaking with this headset. On top of all that, it also has dual functionality between computers and consoles.
However, even though this headset does lead the pack in its sound quality, performance, and durability, it definitely doesn't lead the way in terms of comfort. It tends to leave my ears sore, and even with a smaller head like mine (being a teen) it's a bit tight. After a month of using it, I got used to the tightness, but the ear cuffs are very uncomfortable, but this isn't a big deal and can be overlooked in light of the headsets other great features.
All things taken into consideration, I'd gladly recommend this headset to any gamer who wants a long lasting gaming headset with a microphone and amazing audio quality but doesn't mind a bit of discomfort.
Spending $70 on a piece of Heaven.
Using this made my ears feel super comfortable and I basically had no problem ever since I purchased this headset. You probably can't find anything cheaper or any other headset that works better than this one, within its price range. This product is unbelievable, I hear basically everything I want to hear, footsteps, winds, and even my own breathe. This product also has volume controls letting you cancel some noises out. It's beautiful.
Out of this world!!!
I have never used such a good headset. Well... I have but not for this low price. the closest thing to this would be a turtle beach. it would cost me twice the price to get something as durable and as comfortable as this and the only difference is that it does not have surround sound however, the 3D effects are really good and you can still hear people's footsteps. just a little bit worse than a $120 turtle beach. Its your money but this is the best buy you will find with this price range.
A gift from the gaming gods!!!
I am just kidding. its not from god and I am not trying to offend anyone. I am christian so as you can see I am not making fun of god. its just an expression. Now to the headset. It is amazing; I bought it for 2 reasons. so that I could game without bothering my parents and so that I could watch TV at night with a a reasonable volume (My dad can hear things from a mile away so there was no argument). It is simply amazing. it is extremely comfortable, the design is awesome and don't even get me started on the price. Later, I even found out that there is surround sound on it. I could not believe my luck since to find one as cool, durable and comfortable headset with surround sound, it would cost at least $120 which is twice the price. As they say "There is strong and than there is army strong." This was the second option.
This is a high-end headset, a real step up from anything I've used associated with the Xbox. The thick padding around the earpieces conformed quite well to my ears, and virtually shut out outside noise, a great feature since we live in a noisy environment. Connection was easy to the PC, a bit more complicated with the PS3, probably because I'm somewhat unfamiliar with its setup. I tested the 3D sound with call of duty modern warfare and I did get a shock. I thought I was in the action. Anyhow I can’t get over how great the sound quality of the headset is. I would defiantly recommend it to any gamers.
The most awesome gaming microphone.
This product has amazing sound quality and is better than any wireless microphone and is the most universal mic.
pretty good headset
I would have rated five stars across the board if all the items listed below would have been addressed by CTA Digital. •The head set has great sound. •I would like the headset a lot better if the cord was longer. It is WAY TOO SHORT to be able to sit across the room and play comfortably without someone accidently tripping over it because it is eighteen inches off the floor. I contacted CTA Digital direct to see if an extension was available, but it is not available.• I searched around and found a couple of extensions and made up my own extension for the xbox 360. What a HASSLE. •This item SHOULD HAVE been made at the very least an option for an extra charge. •Also, the "talk back cable" ( wire from headphone to remote) only lasted for a couple of days, however with some fiddling with it, was able to get it to function. •The remote end of the talk back cable SHOULD BE AN ANGLE PLUG. •Other than that , I like the headset. As yet do not know what kind of warranty CTA has. I contacted them about the talk back cable by email a on 16 June 2012. Today is 23 June 2012. More than enough time to reply, but have not heard anything.
the 3D effect on these is amazing. and they are totally worth the money. i recommend these if you play a first person shooter.
Best low-price universal headset you can find
I've had a 360 for quite a while and just recently picked up a PS3.... I was looking into surround sound and ran across the idea of using headphones to get the same surround sound effect. I also had a nephew that was getting a 360 so I figured that being able to communicate with him online wouldn't be a bad idea.... with all these factors leaning towards headphones over speakers: I went headphone shopping.
I was amazed at how expensive headphones are.... especially ones that are capable of running on more than one platform (universal) and ESPECIALLY ones that have surround sound.... I'm not sure how I ran across the US Army Universal Gaming Headset w/ 3D Effect but when I compared and contrasted I realized that I'd be spending over $100 for a high-quality headset that would work on both my 360 and PS3 AND have surround sound.... I've heard lots of good stuff about Turtle Beach and that WAS the direction I wanted to go.... but I wasn't wanting to spend much more than $50 and Turtle Beach didn't have any universal w/ surround sound for that price.
They are comfortable even after using them for several hours..... I have to take a break every few hours or my ears get a LITTLE sore but we're talking lots of hours here.... and it's better after a quick minute-or-two break. There are LOTS of wires in the box and I was somewhat concerned it would be complicated...... it turned out to not be that bad. You just hook up the USB to whatever system you're using, plug in a Red and a White cable into the TV (at least TVs that don't have HDMI Input.... unsure what to do in that case), and if you're using Xbox Live you have one other little thing that connects to your controller. See? Not TOO bad... and you don't really have to mess with it too much after initial setup. Chat and Game volume have separate controls, allowing you to tweak them to your preferred settings.
Only issue: on PS3 and Xbox 360 settings you'll hear a slight hissing that you get used to and no longer hear after using it for a little while..... this can be alleviated by moving the setting to "NOR" (I think that's what it is..... it's the one that doesn't say PS3 or XBOX).... but then you cannot use the "3D Effect" button. The 3D Effect gives more of a surround sound effect than you get when the headphones are in normal mode. You hear "surround sound" either way.... someone walking behind you you actually HEAR behind you, a gun shot to the right you hear to your right, etc. The "3D Effect" makes it more pronounced and I tend to use it in a lot of FPS games for fuller immersion.
Wonderful product. Comfortable, high quality sound, and the price is AMAZING. If you want a good set of headphones and you need them to work on more than one system: GET THESE unless you've got a LOT of money to blow. If you just need headphones for ONE system only you can find cheaper ones but I'm not sure you'll be able to get surround sound at this price. I really couldn't have been happier with these.... maybe one day if these break I'll get a set of those crazy-expensive Turtle Beach Universals..... but I'll be just peachy using these for as long as they last.
