Red Samurai Xbox 360 Communicator Headset
this headset works great for what I need it for, communication it doesn't play game sound which I new that. The only problem I had was a static tick sound when my friend said something but the problem fixed its self. when u plug it in it has a very quite static noise but when you talk to someone or turn it down a little u don't notice it. If you need a goo headset and are on a budget and don't really need game sound in the headset get this one. I have one quite a few games and had just more of an enjoyable Xbox 360 experience with this headset this is my first headset and going to be the headset i recommend to people who don have one. Also I forgot to mention that this headset is super light and comfortable as well as it feels high quality.
Better than expected
My son got his usual GameStop gift card as he does every year for Christmas and he wanted a new head set,he has gone through 5 in a year and 3 of those were Turtle Beach brand. He says this one is the best one ever and he plays a lot. Normally after a few minutes he is complaining about his head set,not this one he isn't and that is a relief for me :) I put it on as he asked me to listen to how good the sound quality is and it is great! Awesome product at a decent price :) Recommended by a daily game players Mom!
Not Bad for <$30
Worked great right out of the package. Obviously not going to be the highest quality, but what do you want for $30? Read the directions when hooking them up and you shouldn't experience any abnormal issues. At least 2 of the poor reviews are most likely user error. Yes, they rattle when you take them off and they aren't the most comfortable, but compared to the basic 'single ear piece' communicators this is a huge step up. Stereo sound gives a more realistic sound enviroment during game play and the volume levels are more than sufficient. My biggest complaint is that my mike is barely audible; wish there was a volume control for that, but it's no big deal. If you want higher quality, pay more money. If you're looking for an upgrade from the basic communicator and you don't want to brake the bank, these aren't too bad. And Gamestop has always been good about exchanges, so I assume that if I have a problem I can always take them back.
Good but Easy to Break
I got these because I wanted a good audio headset and this was exactly what I wanted. The one ear piece makes it so I can still hear whats going on outside. However it can break easily if you drop it or bend the mic to far. It is good but it breaks easy so be careful.
Fake Turtle Beach XC1 is a fake!
I had purchased this communicator on 12/8/2012 to regret it immediately. I have had pair of Turtle Beach XC1's - which by design are practically identical - but consider this product substandard on all fronts. The audio quality is terrible. Normal level sounds are distorted and just to be useful the volume can not exceed half. The earpiece is not secure. When you're finished gaming and remove the headset the earpiece rattles loosely, seemingly ready to fall apart at any moment. Generally this headset is uncomfortable. The design contorts the positioning of my glasses and I never did find a comfortable adjustment. The only positive would be that the mic was very clear according to those I'd talked to in-game.
A standard XBox live headset is in many ways superior to this - more costly - option.
I just bought this mic yesterday from my local gamestop the online store says they did't have any in stock within 100 miles so i went to go get a cheap one and saw it i had to have it. It is light weight very loud and crystal clear communication. I love it and if it ever breaks i'll be getting another one. I didn't give it a 10/10 because nothing is perfect there are flaws in everything and for this the flaw is the holes in the ear piece if someone is sitting next to me i can hear them talking while im trying to play but other then that i love it
Great for the price!
Good for the price. I have had no problems about hearing other people at all. They may not be turtles but are worth it if you are on a budget.
I have had this headset for less than a month, the speeaker doesnt work half the time and maybe once an hour i have to unplug the set and plug them back in to get the mic to work right. I've had $10 headsets the worked way better.
I looked at the comments when i came home from buying these and it was pretty good.. It only sounds bad when you in a lobby with some little kids then it sounds mess up but i dont mind that.. pretty good sound like its blocking them out. If you need some sort of back up or some nice cheap headsets then get these. !!!
Decent, however not reliable
This headset is mediocre. It performs well, however it is not very comfortable in my opinion. If you do buy this headset be aware that its usb connection is very fragile. If you accidentally trip over the cord and move the usb slightly it will stop electrical connection into the mic and headset.
