Pros: Large, fairly lightweight, good sound quality, breathable cushions, not much sound leakage for a $100 xbox gaming headset, good customer support.
Cons: Extremely long cable if you are sitting close to your tv/ monitor, sometimes fickle surround sound (see other thoughts).
Other Thoughts: This headset is great if you have a big head like I do, the ear pads are light and breathable (with a small sacrifice in comfort), and the mic is average. The surround sound will sometimes turn off or act oddly. Switching the audio-box thing off and then back on usually fixes it, but this can be a pain in the middle of intense nonstop combat. For example, when boarding up windows in Black Ops 2 zombies, if you look the complete opposite direction from the window, you will sometimes be unable to hear the distinct "boarding up" sound going on. The very long cable can be a pro or a con depending on what your gaming setup is like, but for me it was a con. I had problems after a little while with my first pair of these, but Turtle Beach customer service was a breeze to deal with, and I got a new pair shipped to me quickly. Overall, a very good heatset for the price point.
