4 out of 5 eggsWorth while but and not expensive!

Pros: I've had these for a month and use them nearly every day. I have a large head and these fit well. They cover my ears completely and are comfy. Great sound, volume, and bass. I use this on PC and Xbox 360.

Cons: I had not problems with this headset. I wish there was some way to use these when I get an Xbox One though.

Other Thoughts: If you don't mind wired headsets then this is the best and most affordable choice.

2 out of 5 eggsFantastic While it Lasts...

Pros: Above average sound quality
Above average mic quality
Bass boost
Cheap price

Cons: The dealbreaker: durability

Other Thoughts: I've owned two pairs of these over the course of almost two years. The first one lasted about a year and a half, and was fantastic while it was in one piece. Unfortunately, after a few months, a crack started to form on the plastic bit that connects the right ear piece to the part that goes over the head. Within months, this piece was bent outwards, and the headset no longer properly covered the ear. I dealt with this for a while before the piece bent far enough that it became unbearable, and I went and redeemed the extended warranty I had fortunately bought.

The second pair was as good as the first for about four months. I noticed a little of the cracking that had killed the previous one, but figuring I'd get another year out of it, didn't think much of it. Then yesterday, the piece snapped through no unusual action of my own, leaving the entire ear piece dangling by a thin piece of plastic. I took it back to where I'd bought it and exchanged it for a model from a different manufacturer.

Good as they are performance-wise, I would advise AGAINST buying these. Turtle Beach would have a five-star product on their hands if only they'd fix this one, EASILY fixable flaw with this design. Alas, this model has been on the market for several years now, and they just don't seem to care, so I'm giving them a bad review. Save yourself the hassle and get yourself something else.

1 out of 5 eggshorrible

Pros: none other than the price.

Cons: I baught this headset for my boyfriend and there are alot of issues with this thing that I am not happy with. The cord is too long,the quality makes static when in skype calls,friends can hear the games he plays loud as day,and the ones he had before which ARE busted are way better than the turtle beach.In all honesty we find it very bad that we can't get a refund when all the other Turtle Beach headsets are refundable.I even hear it in his old headset, how he sounds and frankly he sounds alot better than these Turtle Beach headsets.

Other Thoughts: Go for some others really.This headset is was the worst.I can even buy a Logitech headset for a cheaper price that will last me a very long while that work ten times better than these.

4 out of 5 eggsVery Good

Pros: In a computer using a Creative Labs Sound Blaster Z [equalizer custom Classical settings]. Mid tones and treble are simply outstanding. Bass is good.

Microphone is very good.

Very comfortable ear pads, comfortable tightness [my first set was too tight until they were broken in].

Cons: As others have pointed out, the plastic holding the ear cups is poor. I used care with mine, with the exception of often taking them off of my head too often with the ear cups.

They lasted 19 months, I was very disappointed in losing a great headset.

The volume and other controls on the cord were too easily adjusted with the slightest bump. The second set is much more firm. If this is a regular variation - from poor to good, then quality control should be better.

Other Thoughts: I do not know why a reviewer below said the microphone is poor, I am using a computer and mic fidelity is outstanding.

These headsets do not need care when putting them on or removing them, they need great care.

2 out of 5 eggsDisappointing Durability

Pros: Comfortable fit, good sound quality, easy to use, affordable price.

Cons: Bad production quality, not very durable.

On my 2nd set of X12s now and both have developed major cracks in the plastic after about six months. These are well cared for by an adult, not abused, the plastic should not be breaking after six months of use.

I got the 2nd set hoping my first one cracking was a fluke... ... ... obviously not the case. Will not be purchasing another pair.

Other Thoughts: With a name like Turtle Beach I expected quality. They are very nice out of the box, but breaking after six months regular use is unacceptable.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome Headset!

Pros: Awesome sound quality for this price range
comfortable and fits well
extra long cable for use in big rooms
loud
great for computer, console, music and movies

Cons: none so far

con for me; I sit near my computer so the cable bunches up a lot, but nothing velcro or cabling management can't handle.

Other Thoughts: I use these for all of my communication between games, calls and music. Sounds great with my music. Picks up notes that my speakers, tv or other devices don't. Watched a few movies and sounded like I was in the movie with the actors. Great for anything. Recommended!!!!

2 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Good sound quality.

Cons: These things absolutely mauled my ears after wearing them for a short while. If you have a bigger head, stay away from these.

The headset ended up busting up on me on the left ear. The plastic adjustor on that side just broke to pieces (Meaning I can actually take the left ear off the headset if I wanted to and see the thin chord going into the left earbud). The chord is pretty long as well, bit too long.

Other Thoughts: Very good sound, didn't really have any complaints about the mic from friends I used the headset with. Its just was very uncomfortable and ended up breaking down on me.

3 out of 5 eggsPerfect for gaming, awesome for music

Pros: - Adjustable bass
- Xbox 360 & PC Compatible
- Amazing bass and sound quality
- Amazing mic quality

Cons: - Non-replacable mic
- Requires USB Power

Other Thoughts: This is my second x12 and neither have lasted more than almost a year and a half before the mic had problems and stopped working. I would recommend looking elsewhere. Unless you can avoid moving the mic cable every so often, this might last you. I treated both headsets very well and did not adjust the microphone cable very often and not very much, yet it died twice on me. Aside from this, I have numerous friends who have always reminded me of their similar situations.

(I did not make either purchase on Newegg; I am just an active Newegg user)
