Xbox One Stereo Headset
works fine until the mic breaks randomly
If I had wrote a review when I first got this I'd have given it a 10/10, the mic works fine and is quite comfortable. it also even works for computers. the problem happens down the line. I used the hedset for a good 6 months on both my xbox and my computer but then suddenly when I'm n the middle of a conversation with friends over XBOX live the mic suddenly stops working. I could still hear the game and their voices just fine but the mic no longer picked up my voice. first I thought maybe it was just a fluke so I got a new one and it worked just fine but it only lasted a month before the mic stopped working in the same manor. I still use my old one to listen to stuff on my computer, the sounds still works just fine, the mic just no longer picks up. this mic is great if you just want to hear your game with stereo and don't talk to people much. but if your like me and are constantly communicating with your team then it might just stop working for no reason
Great, but eventually broke :(
The headphones were great overall. It was definitely worth the purchase... Until they broke. The sound quality was amazing, on occasion they would go out while i was playing video games with friends, but that was the adapter. After about 5 months the mic on them stopped working while playing video games with friends. I don't know if that was also a problem with the adapter, or if it was the headphones fault. It bummed me out because it then forced me to use the terrible headset that came with my Xbox. The 6th month of owning these the right side of my headphones decided to also stop working.... WHICH IS NOT COOL BECAUSE I AM A STINGY LITTLE GUY AND I DON'T LIKE REPLACING THINGS. I am currently calling Xbox and asking for a replacement, because like I said i don't want to spend another $60 on headphones....
Great Headset, Then It Broke.
This headset has amazing sound and comfortability (even if you have glasses). Only buy this is you feel like spending $60 every few months for the same headset, or returning them to try to get a new one.
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!
All good except one thing
Everything about the headset is good. Its comfortable performs well except one thing. If you game for 3-4 hours a day you have to change the batteries everyday or every other day.
Do not buy.
The sound is excellent but the mic sucks, friends always tells me the sound is low. A normal 25 dollar headset last far longer than this one.
Broke within 3 months, read my full review.
To start off, I originally thought that this headset was a great buy. The headset itself is comfortable, I wear glasses so this is a plus. The boom mic rotates 180 degrees so, you can have the mic on either side of your face. However, after using it for a few weeks I learned that were some definite flaws. The headset itself is only in stereo, so games that require you to hear where enemies are coming from leaves you looking around 360 degrees for that chopper or incoming fire. Second, the headset eats batteries, I mean destroys them! If you have the recharging kit like myself, you will get 4-8 hours use from a controller depending on the volume of the headset. Finally, the headset stopped all chat communication at a little under 3 months use. The mic stopped transmitting voice communications but, I am still able to hear my friends...I almost forgot, the ability to cycle your chat volume and game volume is highly confusing. The instructions do a horrible job. You are left to try to dial in the chat and game volume by muting the chat and adjusting the game volume, then unmuting chat to hear if it is at an acceptable level. Overall, this product is flawed, and I wish that I had just saved my money and went with Turtle Beaches which I have owned in the past with no problems(TB X-12's 9/10). The old saying still applies "If you buy cheap, you buy often."
Worth the Money, But....
For the money, they are worth it. Stereo sound isn't surround, but it works well. The controls for the volume of the game and the voice of other players works well, and helps you find a good balance. They do not drain your controllers batteries. The only issue i am having is the comfort factor. If I dont find the perfect place, they start to physically hurt my outer ear. Also, the head band does not fit well with my head. It starts to hurt there as well. I had some triton 720's and never had this issue. This will probably not affect most wearers, but it is something to be made aware of. Even with these fit issues, for the $, they are worth it.
Perfect for getting sleep if you have kids around
Not surround sound. But for those wondering about that..... I was very surprised to hear so many little sounds that I did not hear before from my TV. The Stereo sound is good enough to differentiate right to left and front to back. When I rotate the camera around myself so does the sound. They block out enough outside noise so the in game sound is clear right at your ears. I no longer hear my air conditioner/heater. Yes!!! The chat is also very clear and have not had any trouble hearing other gamers. I can play late night without disturbing others in the house which has added hours of gaming enjoyment. Lastly I would like to recommend these headsets to households with kids. Why? I have found my little brother using these early in the morning while I sleep in on weekends.
Two month wonder
This headset worked perfectly for two months but two days ago the mic stopped working randomly during a game of gta and i did everything i could to fix it and nothing worked. This headset is a hunk of junk. DON'T BUY THIS HEADSET!
