5 out of 5 eggsGreat wireless headset

Pros: The audio is clean and crisp on game mode 4 (tremble and bass boost). Bass is just the right amount. Aesthetically pleasing. The Dolby Digital Surround sound is great in games.

Cons: The range could be longer (It's about 10-12 meters). The charging cord could be longer; It's about 3 feet, I would say so I can't really lean back in my chair too much.

Other Thoughts: If you want to use the Surround sound in games, goto the sound menu in the game and try and find the speaker set-up and adjust it accordingly

1 out of 5 eggsShoddy Construction

Pros: Lots of filterable options with easy use side buttons.
Bluetooth connectivity at the same time as PC connectivity for answering your phone.

Cons: Shoddy Construction. Use of cheap and brittle materials. Easily prone to breaking. Errors with USB connectivity. False Advertising.

Other Thoughts: I first purchased these in November of 2013 after seeing them advertised on the box as a surround 7.1 sound headset. Once purchased and set up, their web site informed me that 7.1 was NOT available without a series of drivers. Those drivers were not released for download from Turtle Beach until March of 2014.

The box on the shelf and the spec chart both advertised a feature that would not be available until 4 months into the future. It's blatant false advertising to sell a product that is not capable of the features listed on the box, website product description, and spec charts.

The box also advertised 200 ft range on the headset. I have never managed to get 50ft. away without the headset losing connection. I tried them on a desktop at home, a laptop in multiple places, and on 3 different desktops at other locations. I never got anywhere near the advertised 200ft range.

2 Months after purchase the left side plastic adjustment slide just snapped. I didn't drop them. I didn't bend them, and I didn't join the WWF and wrestle while wearing them. The plastic arms are brittle straight out of the box. I returned the headset to Turtle Beach for warrantee repair. They kept the heaset for a full month before finally shipping me a new unit.

WIth a new unit, and the drivers for 7.1 surround, I was happy with the headset (aside from the range issues) for a few weeks, but then the USB connection started dropping for no reason AND the heaset began turning off on its own at random times.

The only way to turn them back on would be to plug them in, at which time they would instantly turn back on, but with no USB connection (no sound, no mic). I would have to go through the process of resetting the USB connection in order to get them re-connected and working. It's a simple enough process of holding down buttons and wating for flashing lights and then pushing ore buttons, but it should not have to be done 4 or 5 times a night.

Then they stopped connecting all together. I called tech support and they could not get them connected either, so I shipped them back to Turtle Beach. 38 days later, another new headset arrived at my door.

6 weeks later the left side adjustible slide snapped in the same place as the previous set. I simply glued it back together and taped it for support.

3 weeks later, the headset began randomly turning off again.

Don't waste your money on these. The features are nice, and when working the 7.1 makes for a nice gaming experience, but the product is poor quality, breaks eaisly, and has the kind of reoccuring problems that will remind you of the original XBOX360 red ring of death issues.

5 out of 5 eggsZ300

Pros: I've had these headset for a while and there's absolutely no problem with them. The range is decent, and unless you're going to take your headset into the bathroom with you, there's no need for wireless but it works well. The sound quality is great in fact. I do competitions and scrims online with competitive games that require precision hearing. Determining where the sound came from is crucial because if I'm mislead, it could be a win or loss for my team. They do not disappoint much, and preform well for many games. The Mic quality is fantastic actually, i have a youtube channel and all i use is the headsets microphone and it's fantastic. The noise cancellation is pretty good, my computer gets pretty loud due to its CPU Fan, and you can't hear anything in the background. Solid Headset. It also comes with preset EQ which work very well depending on what you're doing.

Cons: Not much to it, solid headset build. Not sure why people would say the audio is that bad, because honestly it isn't. This isn't a studio headset, this is made for gaming, so if you're trying to use these for studio purposes or expecting studio/acoustic audio quality, you're just out of luck.

Other Thoughts: It's just a little expensive, comes with a nice box though.

3 out of 5 eggsGood sound. Nice features. Bad comfort.

Pros: -Great sound quality
-Effortless driver installation
-Cool bluetooth phone feature
-Stylish
-Voice playback is amazing, you hear yourself talking and it helps you form clear sentences

Cons: -Ears touch inside of ear cups, a deal-breaker for me. If you don't mind this or know how to fix it, then disregard this.

Other Thoughts: Bought these to replace my war-torn x42's (great headset, but not optimized for PC's). Was greatly impressed by sound quality, however, note that 7.1 surround will create a big-room type effect that you may or may not like. This is just dolby with headsets, not this particular headset's fault. I loved every feature of these, but the fact that my ears touch the inside of the cups is a big no-no for me. It starts to hurt after an hour or so, and is extremely annoying. Enough so that I had to return them. If this doesn't bother you, consider these as your next headset upgrade.

4 out of 5 eggsPretty good

Pros: -Good sound
-Bluetooth works great!
-mic is detachable

Cons: - Range is a bit short

Other Thoughts: Watch what others say I've head this headset for awhile now and haven't had any problems, some people just cant take care of stuff and they don't feel like cheap plastic either.

2 out of 5 eggsBad Sound Quality

Pros: Long Battery Life
Bluetooth wireless works well
That's about it

Cons: Sound quality is terrible, get better sound from iPod head phones
It doesn't sound like surround sound at all
Cheap feeling for it's price
Not comfortable, not suited for prolonged use.
Buttons are really unintuitive
mic is cheap and fragile, will break quickly

Other Thoughts: Not a good buy. I would rather spend money on something with better sound quality. These just have absolutely no bass whatsoever. My iPod headphones had more bass, and those are notorious for lacking in that area. After prolonged use they get very painful, and actually started to make me feel nauseous, which I've never felt before from a pair of headphones. If you just want to play for an hour on a rare occasion they are probably good, although you can do that with a lot cheaper sets. If you want to really enjoy a video game experience though, look elsewhere.

1 out of 5 eggsZ300

Pros: bluetooth works flawlessly. Mic when working is very clean.

Cons: Mic died in a week, Turtle beach support is really poor. picked up my first support email with in 48 hours was not bad but now its been a 5 day wait for my support agent to get back with me. no true surround sound. its stereo with emulated surround sound. your 2$ headset has the same "surround sound" lack of bass is also a bad con wireless range is very poor on the unit braking up in 15 feet totally drops at 20

Other Thoughts: This was my first turtle beach product. i have always heard good things about them so i decided to give them a try. Big mistake I can deal with the sound quality for music but the complete misrepresentation of the surround sound, lack of wireless range. and the lack of support being able to read and reply to emails
drives this product in the mud. i would get a G930 has true surround sound

3 out of 5 eggsNot bad, but not good for the price.

Pros: Nice quality when it works right, (see cons)
I like the bluetooth feature alot.
Decent material and quality, haven't had anything break yet.

Cons: I often get break ups over the wireless from my Laptop, not sure if theres interference or something, possible, I am going to eventually get a wire so i can connect directly via 3.5mm, I don't get breakup over bluetooth.

Speaking of wireless, the little usb transceiver that comes with it gets really hot, that can't be good.
I can't wear them for too long due to my ears not fitting completely in them, their more round than oval like they should be. but I can still wear them for a good 3 hours, maybe 4 if i push it, but if i do my ears hurt afterwards.

Other Thoughts: This was given to me as a gift from my grandmother, If I had to choose a headset I'd probably go with the logitech g930, My ears fit in them better, and they are 100$ dollars less, seriously, 200$ for these headsets, i think im paying 120$ just for the name "Turtle beach"
Thats another thing, for years I thought turtle beach was amazing.... This sadly disappointed me.

2 out of 5 eggsgood sound, but....

Pros: sound is good, wireless and blue tooth works great

Cons: head set is made of brittle plastic and breaks easily. for 200 bucks you ought to be able to set it on the table without it breaking.. both ear pieces have broken at different places on the frame... real bummer

4 out of 5 eggsDoes what I wanted.

Pros: -Lightweight
-Wireless with multipoint connections, meaning I can connect to my PC, home phone, and cell-phone all at the same time.
-When using the wired audio the mic still works
-Fantastic mic. Both from a recorded audio perspective, and from the fact that it swings out of the way.
- Range is better than the tactic3d, and bluetooth range is even better.

Cons: - Slight hiss when no audio is coming through. This is supremely annoying, and I don't understand why they couldn't figure this out. The tactic3d's I tested had this same issue though.
- I'm constantly accidently pressing the tone and drc buttons. These "features" are wasted on me, and I don't feel as though they should have been integrated on the headset. Most people set these how they like them, and then forget them.
- Drivers could have more range and volume.

Other Thoughts: I compared these to the "Creative Sound Blaster Tactic3D Rage Wireless USB Connector Circumaural Gaming Headset". That headset was overly huge, and cumbersome, also it didn't work with bluetooth. The Tactic3d was also very tight on my head.
