this headset is awsome
i was able to hear the sounds of gunshots in black ops 2 and it sounded perfectly it was the perfect headsset
Last about a year
This is a great turtle beach for beginners in headset. They have great quality, great voice pickup and crystal clear chat. BUT the material quality is very poor. It's very cheaply made plastic. I began to notice little cracks right above the speakers where the headset extends. I took very good care of them. But after about a year it begins to to show little cracks from putting it on and off soo much. I wouldn't recommend this headset if your looking off something that lasts for years.
Great Sound Quality, but can be fragile
Well, this is the fourth time I am buying a new one just because they break so easily for me. The first one broke after about a month of use because my foot got tangled on the cord and I pulled it. My second was the same issue, my third headset just broke today for no reason at all. A month ago I did drop it, but it was fine back then, I just put it on today and I feel something is funny, it didn't fit right. I inspected the headset to find it was broken just above the right speaker where is swivels. I attempted to glue it but had no success. I ended up trying it on and breaking it even more, picture of it can be found below. However, I love this headset with a passion, it has great sound quality and a great microphone, I use it to go back and fourth between PC and XBOX. I can't wait to go out and buy my new one in an hour.
A very good mid range gaming headset.
I've had this headset for at least two years now. It was my first gaming headset, excluding the Xbox 360 default mic. I used it for a long time on my 360, and switched it to my PC when I got a new desktop. First off, it seems that a lot of other reviewers claim it is very fragile, but mine still works fine after at least two years (probably more). It probably doesn't sound as good as it originally did, but it still works just fine. It isn't indestructible, but as long as you don't step on it, drop it on a hard floor, let animals chew on it, or give it to someone who might not treat it carefully, you will be fine. It is very good for its price, but it is still a mid-range headset, so do not compare it to a high range one. It has stereo sound, not surround sound, but good luck finding a quality headset with surround sound for less than double the price. The wire shouldn't be much of an issue, as it is one that splits near the end, and you could tie off the excess if you want. I think they were a little uncomfortable originally, but now I can wear them over my glasses all day. I have had a few minor issues, though. First, the mic is way more sensitive than you would expect. If you use it for Xbox, I would recommend pointing the boom arm for the mic away from your mouth. If you have it in front of your mouth, you are likely to get complaints. In addition, don't use it in an area with a lot of background noise. The mic can pick up pretty much anything you can hear. This includes if you pass gas. The second issue is that the volume knobs are very easy to accidentally turn. When you move, it might brush against your clothes and turn the volume way up, or way down. This didn't happen very often, and has hardly been an issue since I switched to PC, since the voice knob only affects Xbox voice chat. The third main issue was very rare, and only seemed to happen on Xbox. Occasionally, when I started my 360, the microphone wouldn't transmit sound, and I usually had to fiddle with wires for 5 minutes or so to get it to work. It was annoying, but rare, and the benefits mostly outweigh the issues. I'm thinking about upgrading to a much higher end gaming headset soon, though. Overall, I highly recommend it as a starter headset, provided you take proper care of it, don't immediately give up if the mic stops, and are aware that the microphone is WAY more sensitive than it probably should be.
AMAZING! I WILL NEVER NOT STOP...You get the point
This headset is amazing! Although I think it is somewhat under priced, the frame is made of mesh material and plastic; it'd be better to use a more durable material such as plastic with a medium to heavy thick coating of rubber so that if dropped the shock is absorbed and the headset isn't damaged. The sound quality is absolutely amazing and I love how you can adjust chat and bass. I am a big time X-box and PC gamer so this headset is handy for both. Thank you for such a wonderful headset!!!!! KEEP MAKING THEM BETTER :D
Amazing with some nice if somewhat pointless adons
These headphones are amazing, I bought a pair a few weeks ago and the sound clarity is absolutely astonishing. The noise cancelling is great too. I sometimes can't hear people yelling when I am in game. I have found that the Bass Booster doesn't really do much. Correct me if I am wrong but I will turn on and off Bass Booster and nothing will happen. The cable is great length for Xbox, but somewhat annoying if using laptops or PC. Also you can't use these in HDMI unless you buy an adapter. Overall Great Headphones though. Much better than any other headset I have had. I highly recommend these to any gamer. The mic is great, it moves easily and is super sensitive. Sometimes it picks up background noise with is annoying if in a party with friends and they hear what is going on around you. Anyway Great sound, mic, noise cancellation, comfort, style, and cord length. Amazing headset for an Amazing price.
A great headset!
I got this headset 1 year ago,and it is still working great today.I would choose any Turtle Beach headphones over any other headset company for the Xbox 360,beacuse any Turtle Beach headset delivers clear in-game sound,from the remote on the cord.I think this is a great headset for offline and online gaming,for action,shooter,and RPG games.
The problem is the wires they get tangled up and it gets annoying when playing. I recomend turtle x32

After a while the cord messes up
After a year to 24 months the cord messes up and it will stop working, Im using zip ties to keep it together and to hold the cord in a good spot that let's me talk because it messes up.
