Ear Force XO FOUR
Not what I expected....
I bought these on their release date and to be honest was disappointed with this purchase... I had high hopes for these headphones. But to answer some questions you guys probably want to know. 1 no need for batteries. The mic is detachable. The headphones are very comfy. Work on my iPhone and tablet really well!... There's a wire u connect to the xb1 and it updates ur head phones which is cool. (I hope they update the sound quality), There is a wire though, only one. It's the one that connects to your control. It also has an adapter that is connected to the control. That's it. Now the bad part of the are 2 things!!! 1. That adapter I spoke of is the same exact one that Xb1 is selling for like $35 to plug in ur headphones! I mean c'mon man if u already have a wireless set, don't waste ur time buying these or the sevens... 2. The sound quality is garbage!!!!! I'm sry guys I'm just being honest. If u don't believe me get ur phone or tablet and put the head phones on and hear the huuuuuuge maaaaajor difference!!!!!!! I kid u guys not!!!! It's so much louder and better for my iPhone and tablet then for my games... I hope that wire I was given updates the sound because it's really weak. Don't get it twisted I mean u can hear the noises really clear and crisp but it's very very low!! Very low!! My x32's were waaaaaaaay better than these I'm really sry guys... That's about it guys... Good luck and I hope this helped out a lot of u guys...
I baught this product today and updated it. Instantly started working perfect. But make sure u keep the controller charged and don't let it get low for maximum experience. Don't let other ppl tell u different till u try it your self.
Well first thing is first these are a very nice looking pair of headphones, they sound awesome, and there is only one cord that plugs into the controller. The only thing is they are a little snug on the ears, maybe they just have to break in a little bit but other than that i love these. Great if ypou wanna soundwhore people in cod haha. thumbs up!
Its a Decent Headset for the Moment
Did alil research before buying these. Only difference between these and the XO 7 is the interchangable face places and the ear piece pads are leather. Not worth the extra $60 in my opinion. This headset looks cool and its doesnt have 5.1 and it doesnt have Dolby (blame microsoft for that). now the Titan Version of Turtle beach has the 5.1 but doesnt have dolby it will be your best choice but the most in price. But only negatives about this headset is its uncomfortable. the ear pieces swival but the head band part is so stiff if you got a big head like me u cant get any comfort and feels like its clintchin your temples together. also the mic is just straight and it wont bend or curve. it picks up voice pretty nice and the sound overall is ok for just normal surround sound. But if I was you i would get these to hold you over until turtle beach comes out with something better and Microsoft allows dolby digital for those headsets.
sound is bad
It sound like a $20.00 headphone and to small for the head..............................................................................................................................................
This headset works great. Fits nicely, isn't to heavy, and the sound, while not like having my 7.1 on, is great. I'ld like to clear a few things up I've read in other reviews. First, you CAN hear game and grp chat at the same time. Both chat volumes are adjustable independently of each other, just take a few uses to master the controls. There is also instructions online if you can't figure it out. I would prefer an inline control like the 360 set I have, but it is what it is. It does eat up the battery life of the control, that's for sure. Easy solution, buy rechargeable battery or have a second controller handy. My only complaint, like many others, you can't hear yourself talk, so I feel like I'm being to loud sometimes. Final thought, if you want a head set now, don't hesitate to buy this one.
almost complete junk
I pre ordered this headset thinking it would be another good product from turtle beach. i was wrong although the sound quality is good and the feel is good the things interfere with the fuction of the controller in the game. the sound cuts in and out. the headset kills your batteries in your controller fast and they will cut the connection of your controller to the xbox. you have to either try to power your controller off or take the batteries out to reconnect it. i am just going to spend some more money for theadapter and use my old set untill turtle beach can work these horrible kinks out
Nice headset for a 100 bucks
I originally bought the xo sevens, but I am a smaller guy and have a small head and those were just too big for me and I didn't like that the ear cups weren't breathable. I had heard that the xo fours were a little bit smaller, so i returned the sevens and got the fours. These fit me alot better than the sevens, they were a little tight at first but the more I use them the better they feel. When I received the fours the mic was missing the wind screen, like I hear alot of other people have been missing. I contacted Turtle Beach customer support and they got back with me in a couple of days. They told me it was a mix up on there behalf and that they would be sending me out a mic windscreen asap. I have to say really great customer support there. Now for the sound, they sound great, I had the X31's before and these sound better than those did. I definitely can tell which direction sounds of the game are coming from. The xo fours sound exactly the same as the xo sevens, so no difference there. As for people saying they are not "surround sound" that is microsofts fault not Turtle beach, as the xbone at the moment is only pushing stereo through the adapter. All in all I would recommend these to anyone.
Great product with a few shortcomings
Overall, I am very pleased with this headset. The sound is actually very good, and I have experienced few issues with static/popping or audio drop during gameplay. My only complaint is that there is no feedback when you are talking into the mic. Definitely not a deal breaker, but the headphones do a great job of keeping any outside noise almost inaudible. It feels a little weird not hearing yourself when you talk. The design and aesthetics of the headset are great! These look and feel much better than the previous gen. of Turtle Beach headsets. It's a nice modern design and they have some weight to them. Everything you need comes in the box, as well. The chat adapter is needed and is included. You also get a usb cable to let you update the controller for the headset, which takes 2 minutes. LONG story short, here are my key features: 1) Great sound/chat quality, 2) essentially a wireless headset (only one wire running from headset to chat adapter on the controller), 3) removable microphone, 4) design/aesthetics - the headset looks really slick and you can use it on any device to watch tv, movies, etc. My only two complaints: 1) lack of feedback through headset when talking 2) price-wise I think they are little over-priced.
Do not buy this headset! I bought 2 from GameStop and they don't even come with the wind proof foam on the mic that is shown on the box or on the Turtle Beach website. On top of missing pieces, the XO Four has a cheaply made headband that is doesn't fit roundly on your head as other Turtle Beach headsets have in the past. They are extremely uncomfortable. The speakers literally sit on your ear. The sound that it produces is subpar. I have owned the X11s, X12s, and XP300s. The X11s and X12s fit more comfortably and produce better sound for half the cost. Not at all impressed with this next gen headset.
