Xbox One Stereo Headset
This is a great value of a gaming headset. I would highly recomend people buy this. Great sound, bass, clear. Games like titanfall, forza, bf4,cod sounds amazing. You need to get it, its great.
I am happy about these stereo headsets
Just to let all know that I waited until these went on sale for 60 $. Gamestop is always offering some great deals, and what I wanted was a stereo headset with good bass. I was after something I could wear at night so I would not bother visitors that were asleep and for in the dark games where I would hear scary things that went bump in the night. I found myself looking to the right and left as well as all around. Ofcourse Playing in the dark like with doom. I am looking forward to a few games that will be comeing out like the new alien and 1 that appears to be a complete mind( beep) LOL:) of a horror game , dare I say it The Evil Within. You horror fans need to check it out! If these are what you want don't let others talk you out of them. I found that my friend had a scratchy noise with them, but when I told him are they pluged all the way into the adapter, well problem solved! Sometimes the easiest probability is the answer. Take care all and keep on gameing!
Was a little hesitant at first...had a few turtle beaches in the past but decided to try them out since they were a Microsoft product. With a low price tag ($60 w/o the adapter) it's defientley worth it!! There extremely comfortable with amazing sound really went way passed my expectations.
Pretty good for Microsolf
Its a good product for its price, im glad Microsoft finally came out with one. it has this small little flicker noise but that's not from the headset its from the adapter. I put my head phones into the adapter and it did also. They will probably come out with an update for it. But overall its a great headset.
They sound great, they're comfortable, and most of all its a great value compared to the other headsets. They are really simple to use: Just plug in the included adapter on the bottom of the Xbox One controller and then plug in the headset into the adapter. Then you're all done, no messing with cables to the back of the box or messing with settings. They also work with anything (your music player, PC, etc,) as great sounding headphones, so they're not just for gaming.
Bad overall quaility.
I bought these and they were very disappointing. The plastic they use to make this headset is very cheap, and the ear cups were small and uncomfortable. The headset itself is also very small and can not be adjusted at all. For the price this headset is very poor. I would recommend getting the turtle beaches instead.
3 returns later and I STILL get 24/7 static issues
I had to return the headset 3 times to Gamestop. After I updated the headset on Xbox One thru a controller update they get static non stop afterward. DO NO UPDATE THESE THRU THE XBOX ONE CONTROLLER UPDATE! STATIC ISSUE! Worked fine before I updated them. Now I have to return my new pair tomorrow for the 4th time. Not worth the money at all. Defective stereo headset adapter provided with every stereo headset. DO NOT BUY! Gamestop carries limited stock of these and you will have to drive far to return at different locations.
Great for the price
I have a better headset but, it was more expensive. I needed one for my Xbox1. For this price I couldn't ask for more. It's very comfortable. Very good stereo sound. It's not surround sound. I love that, other than a wire to the controller, it's wireless. It also works with my iPhone and PC.
No Surround Sound
For the majority of people, the primary reason to get a nice stereo gaming headset is for surround sound so when your playing games like Call of Duty you feel immersed in the game and can hear footsteps and all of that. With this headset, a detail that Microsoft has been somewhat hiding is that this headset DOES NOT HAVE SURROUND SOUND. In my opinion, that is the most important feature for a Gaming stereo headset. If you don't play shooters, GTA, or anything where surround sound would be cool/important than maybe consider this but if you do play games where surround sound is important, than forget about this headset. Sadly, even the Playstation Gold Headset for Playstation 4 has high quality 7.1 surround sound and it's only $20 more. Pretty disappointed in Microsoft for this headset.
There is no reason for anybody not to like these! They cost so much less than any others and they are actually better! I have a friend that did a review video on all of the xbox headphones with the sound comparisons and he agreed that these are by far the best quality and sound!
