Pros - Performance - Able to get people who are sneaking up from behind you in CoD. Price for a headset better than the basic Xbox 360 head sets. Cons - Wires - which is a Pro also. CONS #1 gets tangled. Volume and chat dial may rub against you or couch and change volume. #2 every once in a while I reccomend you to unplug wires from console and straighten them out to avoid damage to wires. PROS #1 I love the bass volume. #2 Can stretch about 8-10 feet. Also my dog got too excited and stepped on headset but it still works. Look at my pictures for a better example. Also I advise you about other comments how they don't work ect. They may not treat their products with respect and care especially with the wires cracking from being coiled up too long. I had this for one year and the only thing that happened to it was that I left it on the floor and my dog stepped on it. Take care of everything with care and respect and you won't see or make a comment saying the speaker blew out because I had all 3 dials turned all the way up or the cheap wire broke because I never took it out to straighten it. Or cheap plastic because I streached the headset over my head to put it on. Remember respect and care and maybe things will last for all that read this.
Good but wires messed up after a long time of use
the headset was amazing but i used for both xbox 360 gaming and pc gaming and the wires would mess up inside of the headset if i accidentally pulled a wire made it difficult to use after a long time of using the headset. this would be a personal problem and might not happen to everyone. i also had to use duct tape to keep the wires from breaking bad design on their part.
Best gaming headset ever!!
Frist off let me just say this. If you are one of those gamers who thinks that $250 is to much for a gaming headset. You know what headset i am talking about then right?. I seen these on the website. And when i seen the price of them i was like wow!! you can't beat $60 for a headset that works just as well as the other headset that you guys know what i am talking about. It starts with an A Lol. Yea i would pick these over them any day. $60 guys you can't beat that for a gaming headset. Get this headset you will like them trust me on this..
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.
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.
Amazing Sound Quality for less than $100.
Amazing Headphones for the price. Amazing sound quality for the price however after wearing them for awhile they get a little uncomfortable. The Turtle Beach logo on the inside scratches your ear and is a little uncomfortable. The logo on the inside is unnecessary and I suggest scratching it off. If your worried about ruining them then just grin and bear it. Definitely worth buying.
Great Sound Quality, Poor Durability
The sound quality is excellent. Both the chat and game come in clearly. However, in my opinion, this is where the "Pros" list ends. I bought this headset in January and in the beginning of May, stress cracks began to show up on the right side. Near the end of May, the headset broke on the right side(picture included). I take care of my electronics, I don't throw anything in fits of rage, nor have I even dropped this headset. The greatest stress I put on this headset was putting them on and taking them off. I started off with the X11 headset and loved it, and I had it for about a year and half before it broke. I bought the X12's hoping they would last at least the same amount of time. It's unfortunate that the product was unable to last more than 5 months, because everything else about this headset is awesome.
Do NOT Buy
I have owned 2 in the last 12 months and they both broke on the left side with the mic. The are made of cheap thin plastic that breaks after about six months of use.
Was not expecting that...
All I can say is suprising. I got them on a recommendation, and I love them! Suprised at how well they work and how eas it is to use. Would recommend for anyone who likes to hear their games, not the commentators next to them.
Needs easier setup
Excellent quality, but it needs to have a easier setup and when your talking to people the mic is too sensitive.
