Rated 6 out of 10
by Alstaygdup 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...
Rated 5 out of 10 by ImUrDaddy84 Good sound but WILL break
Out of the box they look good, but dont feel great. The ear cups are too tight, and after extended game session, they will hurt. The sound is good for what it is...Stereo. You will not be disappointed with the sound. Your biggest disappointment will be, THEY WILL BREAK! I have owned multiple different headsets, and these are by far the least durable. The speakers WILL NOT LAST. Might be right, might be left, but one of them WILL break. And your replacement WILL eventually also break. It is what it is with these.
Rated 10 out of 10 by extdewme Great Buy, No Tech Fails
I have been using these since I bought my One last year, I have had no tech problems using them, great sound quality, some reviews had been saying you cant hear your voice when you talk. This must be a problem on their side, they work just fine. Only problem I ran into was i wish the padding on top was just a little thicker, after hours of play it started to hurt, but i adjusted them and continued. I would recommend this buy to any of my friends, its a great price range and are very durable. Thanks for selling a product that makes gaming so much better!
Rated 7 out of 10 by HurtnFeelnz 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.
Rated 1 out of 10 by Groot Premium Price, horrible quality.
I went out and picked this headset up because I had owned Turtle Beach headsets in the past that I was very happy with. This particular set was in my possession for not even two full days before I noticed the problems.
For one, the left speaker broke and stopped producing sound on the second day, which made me return them.
Secondly they squeak SO LOUDLY that even my friend on the other end of the mic could hear the plastic's noises. This happened for virtually no reason at all, so don't think "I can live with it" lol
Third, you really feel their weight.. it starts to not only hurt the top of your head where it rests, but your ears start getting painful too.
Finally the sound quality is worse than the 65, and 90 dollar sets I have owned before. They are not even close to being worth their prices... and I wouldn't ever get them again.
I guess I should also add that you can't hear yourself speak when wearing them like even the cheaper sets allow, so you're constantly trying to figure out how loudly you're speaking. Very annoying.
STAY AWAY. For your own sake.
Rated 9 out of 10 by Snipesum XO FOUR headset long lasting
This headset I got in october of 2013, very good quality for the money. The only reason why I am buying a new one is because i spilt coffee on it.
Rated 9 out of 10 by Leprechaunjohn MUST READ
I bought this headset as my first nice one for the Xbox One and since I first wore them i have been in love, until about a week or so ago when my first pair blew a speaker. i was still under warranty with Gamestop so i was able to get a new pair for free. Today I was watching a YouTube video on my console and my no more than a week old, $120 (when i bought them) headset, that has barley even been taken out of its case, blows another speaker... I am truly aggravated right now at the face that i have now dropped $120 on a headset that let me remind you, is the best headset i have ever owned when it comes to comfort, performance, and chat but obviously it lacks quality when it comes to how it is manufactured because i haven't dropped it once or listened to my games loud.
Rated 10 out of 10 by csparkman definitely worth it
Was fuzzy at first when I plugged it in but once I updated it with my controller it sounded perfect ...better than the $200 ones for sure
Rated 8 out of 10 by Myccal Decent Headset
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.
Rated 10 out of 10 by xbone1 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.
