Xbox 360 Ear Force X32 Wireless Gaming Headset
The headset has an overall great sound quality and all plus it is wireless which is very helpful. I only have really two complaints about it. One the battery life, if you are like me and use them upwards of about 8 hours a day you will need to change the batteries at least once a day so I would recommend getting a few rechargeable AAA batteries. The other complaint is if you are like me and have a large head and need to use the largest setting possible eventually no matter how careful you are with it both earphones will start to break, the plastic will break and the earphones will start straying further and further from your ears and will start to fall off and eventually break completely. This started happening to me after about 8-9 months of use.
Sounds great but some large flaws
I got these headphones for my son for Christmas.
Good quality build and they sound great.
BUT, they have some flaws.
First, getting it set up was a real pain, ok that can be expected. But they don't tell you on the box that if you are using HDMI for your console that you will have to go buy a separate audio cable. Would have been nice to know that before so that I could have the cable ready to go without making a trip to the store again.
Secondly, if you want to use the microphone, you have to plug in a cable from the headset to the controller. What is the point of that? We wanted wireless, that is not wireless.
Third, these thing EAT batteries faster than I can buy them. You have to turn them off after playing (the auto shut off does not work very well) otherwise the batteries will not last 24 hours. Even then I am still buy a LOT of batteries.
Had I known all of the shortcomings of this headset I would have just bought a wired set.
Decent sound quality but not worth the money.
When I first bought the x32's I thought it'd be an alright set. I was going into gamestop knowing I was buying a 7/10 headset. I bring it home, set it up, and it works pretty well.. For about only a week.
When I changed the batteries out, the headset stopped pairing to the adapter, but when I had the factory batteries in the headset, I heard a very loud obnoxious buzzzz through the ear pieces. So long strory short, I have a piece of semi comfortable plastic sitting on top of my xbox, and the turtlebeach company will not help with troubleshooting.
Every remedy I have found online does not work for my piece of plastic, so please.. Don't go and waste money thinking these are better because they released after the x12s. In my opinion, the x12s have better sound quality than these anyways. Just deal with all the wires until you can afford the astros. Thats what I am doing.
HOPE THIS HELPED!!!! :D
Turtle Beach x32 Tips <--- Read
Tips: Yes. I know you guys have been hearing buzzing noises and stuff. If you have the chat cable in your headset and controller it will make a noise. To stop it just pull it out!!! Or change the batteries. The batteries that come in some of them aren't too good. So just put in 2 NEW triple A batteries. Some of these methods will work. If you hear a buzzing noise then pull out the chat cable. If you hear beeping that means you need to change batteries. If you are experiences different things, at least try to fix it. My Overall Rating: Overall this mic is amazing. Nothing bad about it. If you hear buzzing or beeping check the tips out and see if they work. They work for me. They are actually very comfortable once you break them in. Down side to me was that I was hoping to get Surround Sound with this headset, but I didn't. That's the only down side to me, or at least the "bad part". The designs on turtle beaches are really cool, but this one wasn't the best. It's really worth the money. Thanks for reading, and I hope these tips helped!
Okay to start off, this is by no means a bad headset. It is not very battery efficient and its not the best fitting headset either. But if you can get over those its good, BUT like a lot of the turtle beaches it transmits over the 2.4ghz frequency which is the same that home phones, wireless routers, wireless xbox 360 controllers and quite a few other things, what that means is if any of those things get close enough to your headset transmitter then something is going to get screwed up. Sometimes its just some crackling in the headset but with the router your internet will get cock blocked from your xbox. This has to do with proximity or if your headset gets shut off it will also block your internet. If you can ignore all this its a great headset (especially for the price) but i would recommend a wired headset, because of the lack of transmitter and no need for a reliance on batteries.
First off, let me just say i dnot know why people are giving this headset a bad review. I have had it for about a month now and it is amazing. I had my Turtle Beach Foxtrots for a while and wanted a new pair so I looked online and had a hard time selecting what pair I wanted so I just went to a local gamestop. I was thinking about getting Tritions but then I tested these because there was a staion set up with these (X32) and X42s which are more expensive. I listened through both and they sounded exactly the same! Some of my friends have astros and tritions and they all complain about them. I enjoy the wireless. Altough not completely wireless due to the talkback cable going to the Xbox. The sound quality is great and I love not having to have a mixamp because almost all the buttons you need are on The left ear of the headest. My only complaint is that they TEAR through batteries. I usually need to change they every 3 to 5 days. I would highly recomend spending the money to get rechargeable batteries. As long as everying is set up correctly then you should have no problems.
I tried to sync the the headset about 20 times and it won't sync so now I don't have game sound this headset is trash
Not your typical Turtle Beach product. Bought a set for the wife because her X4 chat chord finally broke and they don't make them anymore. Was a pain getting them to pair up with transmitter. Worked great when they finally did, good sound, effects, etc. But then they just QUIT! No sound, no nothing! Paired them back up again, worked fine, then just quit again! Would come back briefly if we tapped the headpiece, but then no sound again. Brought them back to Game Stop and got another set. Same thing, they would work for awhile, then just QUIT! The second set also had a noticeable annoying buzz that would not go away at all. The set beeped when the batteries got low, then made an awful screach that would not stop until I pulled them out. Look, I'm still using a 4 year old set of X31's and have had no problems with them at all. I'm really disappointed with this next generation set, and would not recommend them to anyone even though I am a Turtle Beach fan. I hope they check and/or fix whatever part of the manufacturing process they changed to make these, they seem cheaper than previous models. Very disappointing...
Worth every penny
This headset is one that I am very fond of. I adjust the headset to a setting that enhances the sounds in call of duty with the buttons on the side. The design of the headset is in my favor and it is very comfortable. The price could've been lowered, but qualifies as a gaming headset for the Moderate/Heavy Gamer.
It's okay until you turn on the mic
It's pretty good for sound as long as you have the mic off when it's on it constantly buzzing in my ear and I have to keep adjusting the position for the least amount of buzz I absolutely hate that. When I'm talking to my friends I need to turn the mic on and off so that I can stand using them the only reason I'm giving it a 4 is because I like the sound alone you can hook it up to your tv and watch your shows and not bug people but to be honest this isn't the best for playing games if ya wanna talk to your friends at the same time also it goes through batteries pretty fast and has an annoying beep it does for like 15mins sometimes others it'll give ya 5mins I'm kind of tired of them but don't have a lot of spare money to get a different one. I would say DON'T BUY THIS unless you want a headset just for sound
