PULSE Wireless Stereo Headset - Elite Edition
Do you believe in love at first sight?
I bought this headset shortly after my friend bought his. This is THE BEST headset i have ever own I've owned Astros, Trittons, and Turtle beach but this one is 5X better then all of them. The mic is amazing, the Bass Impact is the best thing sense sliced bread. I use them for PC and my PS3/4 and they work great for all of them.
Good Sound, Weak Design
For the price, these headsets gives you great sound both for game play and for chat. However the design is weak this is the second pair i purchase and within six month the sides are cracking. This happen to both pairs and it seems to be from the motion of taking the headset on and off.
The pulse headphones are amazing. I just got my ps4 the same day, and hooking these up is simple. plug it in assign to whom is using and voila. finished. Navigating them is hard at first but it gets better. I also love that you can switch modes, music, game, shooter, ect. I havent downloaded a custom version yet of the pulse and idk if i ever will. The bass is enough to make your eardrums rock. These headphones are simple, and being wireless makes it less of a trip hazard. Only downside that i had was not being able to connect via blutooth to my phone rather than cord, but not a big deal. Awesome headphones I definitely recommend.
broke where the earphone connects to the frame when i went to put them on. wouldnt buy them for anyone else. had them for the ps3 then got a ps4 and waited for the update, it came out and i went to use them and didnt even get a chance they broke the first time i went to put them on. bad design. when i tried to put them back together good enough to tape them one of the wires snapped so definitely stay away from this product
Best PS4 (real) wireless headset out
Okay to start, i recently bought a pair of turtle beach PX4's for call of duty on the ps4. I believe i got trapped by the whole "PS4 Compatible" advertisement the turtle beach website said since it was a brand new system at the time. Got the headset and had to run wires and have a wire plugged into the controller just to get any type of audio. (Mistake #1) Anyway got over that and started playing call of duty with the turtle beaches and they were okay, they were lacking all types of low end (bass) that i thought turtle beaches were known for. The audio coming through wasn't all that crisp either, but good enough. (Mistake #2) after using the PX4's for about a week the headset started cutting in and out to the point where i couldn't hear game or chat audio during the match for 3-10 seconds at a time, that was the last straw, i had to give them up I saw the PS4 update supporting this headset and figured why not give it a try, just received the headset about an hour ago and there is a day and night difference. The turtle beaches are cheap compared to these, even then it comes down to build quality, these are true surround sound and the bass is epic. Don't frustrate yourself getting turtle beaches, just buy these instead
Great all around headset.
I am super happy with my sony pulse elite headphones. Iv had a few different headsets from turtle beach. I wasn't happy with how the batteries would die so fast in the wireless ones and didn't like the pair that had to stay plugged into the playstation. So I bought the sony pulse elites because of the heads up display on my tv screen and the custom sound downloads from the playstation store. I am super happy that they plug in and charge just like my ps3 controller. I give my headphones a full charge while watching Netflix movies and once they are charged fully I game for endless hours, I'm talking 8-9 hours of solid gameplay befor I get off and they are still fully charged. I have yet to have these headphones to go dead on me while im gaming. And this is a must because when I stay up late to game I cannot keep the house up with exploding bombs and gun fire. They are the most comfy headphones iv had yet and will be glad to use them as long as possible. Iv had these headphones over a year and use them a lot and still work like the day I bought them.
Headset is made out of terrible quality plastic.
To start, the headset sounded great. Audio was really good. Well, that's all I can really say that's good about this headset...
For this high price range, you WOULD expect a headset to be comfortable. Although, only after about 2-3 hours of using this headset my ears got very sore. The headband was light on padding. If they didn't have those two pointless round steel circles on each side of the headset, they could've probably put more money into comfort, or maybe made the reinforcement for the headband to made out of better material.
I used this headset quite often as a regular headset for music. But only in my own house, because I got strange looks wearing it around because of shiny earcups and those two shiny circles made out of steel.
Currently, I have a $100 headset that is WAY more comfortable than the pulse elite headset, has a longer battery life, and made out of better material. Go look at it, I've had it a lot longer than the pulse headset lasted me and no problems so far. Universal Afterglows Wireless headset. The prismatic edition is the one I have.
The default as you can is more of a roundish circle, a human head doesn't fit a headset like that. The most ideal shape for a headset is a U shape, except of course the U is turned upside down. This headset has more of a C shape, except the C is facing downwards. So everytime you put it on your head, you make the headset go from a C shape to a U shape. This puts stress on the material around the headband. I used this headset daily. Not just for gaming, but Skyping, going on Hulu/Netflix, and music. After about 5-6 months of owning them, everytime I put them on I heard a slight creak/whining noise. After a while I checked. I stretched them out in my own hands and heard it, then looked at the source of the noise. I noticed a crack, right where the earcups support attaches to the steel circle. Another crack had formed on the other side, in nearly the same spot. My friend also had this problem, he said he taped his up. After looking at YT video reviews, I saw a few viewers commenting saying the same thing happened to them.
Don't buy this headset, it is an overpriced piece of garbage. Even if it had better quality for the band, it's still uncomfortable, they wasted money on those stupid steel circles which COULD have gone to other things. And a terrible battery life.
Great item, if you have a small head.
I love my elite. However, I have a large head and my headset has developed cracks just below the silver disks on each side. This has become worse and now the plastic has broken completely. The headset still works. Just disappointed in the design flaw.
great headset, better than beats
I had turtle beaches up until I saw these. was skeptical when I got them! hands down every bit as good as the best pair of turtle beaches, really great sound, very crisp, very clear. I use them for listening to music as well, and they are every bit as good as beat in my opinion they are better than beats( half the price too)! Now just need a patch for them to work on the ps4 and they will be the best for it at a working mans price!
Just got these a week ago after my cheap bluetooth headset broke. I didn't mind spending the money...as long as Sony delivered a good product. And boy did they ever!! The bass is incredible. You've got to spend a little time dialing the bass and volume in, but once you do...it's on! I play a lot of Battlefield 3 and 4, and you can hear things you couldn't hear with a cheap pair of headsets. You can hear footsteps on the other side of walls and hear far approaching tanks, helis, and jets. I also tried out the Beats headsets, and am very happy that I chose these. Not only do they perform and fit better....they're a lot cheaper!! You save about $100, and they are better than the Dre Beats. If you just want to get the Beats, and spend the extra $$$...do it. The PULSE is far superior and a better value.
