4 out of 5 eggsgood if at the right price

Pros: Good sound quality for the 129.99, questionable if paying retail, works well through 1/2 the house, surround sound works nicely and the multi program although rarely used are a great bonus when they are. Very comfortable headset for it's weight (more comfortable then my wired razer weighing much less),

Cons: AA batteries, you will need to buy rechargeable as you will use alot of them, (usually once a day of heavy use I change them out) does get the occasional audio interference. Using it with your PC does require Bluetooth, and switching to your phone and back often requires a reload of the program I'm using. Biggest problem is the Mic. it is flat out horrible, low sound output and even when boosted through aps, everyone complains how bad it sound. If your screaming at newbs on a FPS go for it the quality will make their ears bleed, but if your leading a raid on WoW, or a fleet in Eve, you'll be looking for a mic alternative. (not to mention cutting out cause of dead batteries)

Other Thoughts: Not even close to worth the retail price, for 130 it is a decent buy thou.

3 out of 5 eggsGreat Product - Deceptive Title

Pros: They sound awesome and the presets are nice. They're really comfortable and I haven't noticed any pressure points even after hours of wear.

Cons: Battery life is horrible - less than a week playing an hour a day. But I gave them a 3 star because the title is extremely deceptive - THESE DO NOT CONNECT TO A COMPUTER USING A USB CORD for sound and microphone anyway. They do plug into your computer so you can put additional software on them or download more presets but I'll say it again, you can not connect these to your computer vis usb and use them for audio and microphone. The do have audio imputs on the base - so I'm using mine with my PC by plugging the output from my soundcard into the base and then using a different microphone. In order to send voice from the headset you either need to have bluetooth or be plugged into an xbox controller - it won't plug into a normal mic jack on the computer or work via USB. Which is really disappointing because it would be so easy to put the proper jack on them somewhere or just use the dang USB cord that it came with. Anyway, I'm keeping them because I got them refurbished for cheap and the sound is awesome - but I wouldn't buy them for a computer again, I'm sure they are great with the xbox or ps3 - but why put "USB Connector" in the title if all it does is update through the usb - it doesn't "connect" sound or voice through the USB.

3 out of 5 eggsNot worth it

Pros: Wierless, and bluetooth alowed me to play music and play.

Cons: I don't know if I got a bad one, but on mine the base goes all wiered one me and fluxuates constantley, chat is staticy, and the presets editor soft ware can't find my headset when I hook it up.

Other Thoughts: I only payed 104 $ for it refurbished and could not imagine paying 250$ for this thing.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat Headphones for all platforms

Pros: (I now own a pair of Astro A40's with amp so the review will mention the two)

-Very light, does not hurt my head like the Astro A40's.

-Great sound quality. Clear and crisp highs and mids. Comparable to the A40's.

-I LOVE the mic monitoring (hearing your own voice in the headset so you're not shouting).

-Battery life is decent.

Cons: -Ear cups are a little too shallow for my big ears and tend to hurt after an hour or so.

-Bass is very shallow and not very deep. This is 1 area where the Astros beat this TB headset.

-Bluetooth only mic (unless using on XBOX, then it's wired to your controller). If using on PC a cheap dongle will suffice, but it adds to the cost of the headset.

Other Thoughts: BE AWARE that any 7.1 or 5.1 or any surround sound headphones will only be as good as your sound card if using on your PC. This was my first foray into the audio quality world and I learned this the hard way. Quality headsets like this NEED an optical port for one, otherwise you're wasting your money listening to analog with such an expensive headset. The Turtle Beach Audio Advantage Micro II is an easy fix for this, however it only gives expanded stereo, not surround sound. You'll need a sound card with Dolby Digital Live to truly appreciate these or any surround sound headphones on the PC.

4 out of 5 eggsFar from plug and play

Pros: Fair audio and mic quality, nice looking design, tons of features,

Cons: Bluetooth reliant mic, fair audio quality at high price tag

Other Thoughts: This headset for PC is absolutely dependent on the Preset Manager and giving the mic a work out. You can find it at http://www.turtlebeach.com/community/preset-community

Was extremely frustrated with the headset until I fixed it using that

1 out of 5 eggs

Pros: None

Cons: Very hard to set up correctly, also has a lot of problems working in a home that has other wireless tech being used. No matter the settings I couldnt get the things to work right without turning off ALL my other wifi and bluetooth items, in a home with 6 other wireless toys this just isn't doable. Also, although TB says it CAN BE USED WITH PC, it takes a LOT of set up and only does it half way. Very bad buy, normally I love TB items but this one really crapped out.

5 out of 5 eggsGood RMA experience, and product

Pros: Product seems to work as advertised, but I'm no sound technicien. PX5s definitely as surround effect that, upon downgrading to stereo headphones, they could not handle. If you carefully and gently slip the ear cups over your ears individually (note the swivels) you can get a tight snug fit that shouldn't wear down the pads too quickly, even with larger ears.


Primary reason of review is company's own RMA.
The headphone struts (always too weak for my tastes it seems on any set) snapped, a sent it in as instructed, and got a new one a day after it cleared their chech (two weeks in all or so).

Now, more good stuff after disclaimer - I do not represent Turtle Beach or their policy, this is hearsay.
The RMA process overlooked some self repair work I did - it didn't do further damage to undamaged parts of the unit, but the evidence of it being a plain break had melted away. The sum refurbishment cost for them would be the same and they didn't get all beaureaucratic about it and send it back to me.

Cons: Headset mic seems a little lackluster compared to my desktop mic - it might be related to the bluetooth set up I have, so defer to someone with PS3 on that.

Other Thoughts: I don't have the biggest though and I think they would do well to sell some oversized pads, the device is FAR from uncomfortable though.

If you have the time you can customize the [LEMONS] out of these phonse
