Turtle Beach


Universal headset for PS3, XBOX 360, PC or Mac

Hear PSN, XBOX LIVE, or online chat plus stereo game sound

Stereo Expander creates a wider stereo panorama

Heart-thumping bass boost adds sonic realism

The built-in Bass Boost feature, which enhances deep-bass effects and makes the game audio even more dramatic.

This is similar to adding a subwoofer to a home theater system where extra bass introduces additional depth to the overall sound. The Bass Boost effect allows you to hear deep audio cues that would otherwise be difficult to hear, resulting in a valuable advantage over your competition.

Chat Boost dynamic talkback lets you hear chat when the game gets louder

Chat Boost automatically increases the online chat levels during intense gaming sequences, so communication from teammates isn't drowned out.

As the game audio gets louder, the chat volume is automatically increased so you can continue to hear what everyone is saying. When the game volume quiets down, the chat level gradually returns to the normal volume setting. You can see it working by looking at the chat level light, which gets brighter as the game gets louder and the chat level increases.

It's a simple solution to an annoying problem, and it happens automatically, so you don't have to adjust anything!

Eliminates game sounds picked up by chat mic

Independent controls for game audio and chat volumes

Mic monitoring allows you to hear what you're saying

If you're wearing a headset, it's hard to hear yourself speak, so you'll tend to talk louder. Just like a telephone, it mixes a portion of the microphone signal into the headphone signal, so you can hear some of your voice along with the online chatting and game audio. This lets you easily sense what you're saying, but not so much that it's distracting.

1 out of 5 eggsListed as new but is refurbished

Pros: None

Cons: Item was listed as new, item is not new, item is refurbished. Shipped in box with no padding or bubble wrap to protect the items from being scratched or otherwise damaged in shipping. Did not come in the box that was pictured, came in a plastic bag. Headphones were hastily put together and cushions were not secured to the headphones, when they were taken out of the bag the cushions fell off of the headphones. A sticky substance was on the top of one pair of the headphones. Several things to let you know that your money is not being spent on a new item, at least by this particular seller. And $9 dollars in shipping will just get you a UPS box.

3 out of 5 eggsGood while they lasted

Pros: Pretty good sound quality and relatively comfortable and easy to use.

Cons: These are more "on ear" rather than "around ear" so they get a little uncomfortable after a while. They ended up breaking for me after about 3 months of use. The wiring inside the rubber casing was very loose and only transmitted to one ear or the other when you wiggled around the cord, and wiggling cords is not good.

1 out of 5 eggsNot good

Pros: quiet

Cons: didn't last, keeps breaking, left sound quits working, sound for both comes out of one side

Other Thoughts: Quit working a month before warranty was finished, was sent a replacement unit and it quit before a month of use. This item is used by an adult and not abused in any way.

2 out of 5 eggsLasted 6 months

Pros: Great sound quality
Great mic quality

Cons: Incredibly cheap feeling
Uncomfortable and heavy
Long cords are nice, but this length was just in the way all the time even trying to keep neat
Broke even though never dropped once
The design is terrible and the material is the worst part. I knew after getting it that it was only a mater of time before one of the joints broke. I was very careful with it but still one day out of nowhere the connecting bar just snapped when picked up.

Other Thoughts: I would not recommend getting this again should it come back in stock. I only had it 9 months and it broke.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Amazing.
Nice bass and chat boost.
Crystal clear Mic
Crystal clear sound
Long cable

Cons: Breaks Easily
One side goes out after a couple weeks

Other Thoughts: I've had a pair for more than a year before, but they kept breaking after a couple months even after proper care. They were replaced under the warranty, but it's still something to take into consideration when buying these.

Other than that, there's really no problems with these.

5 out of 5 eggsReview after PC use

Pros: Good quality cound and Bass, microphone has great sensitivity and ear cups are very comfortable

Cons: If used on a laptop or not dostant from desired device, the still bundeled cord can weigh a lot and makes me fear it possible damaging the USB connector if your not careful. I reccoment un-wrapping the cord's legnth to a moderate extend of using it at a stationary PC

Other Thoughts: While comfortable, the initial stregnth of the ear-cups being forced together is a little strong, and may make them somewhat un-comfortable to wear early on. Other than that it is a high quality produck and I would highly consider buying it again should the need arise

3 out of 5 eggsBoop

Pros: Sound quality is amazing

Cons: Headset plastic moving pieces are loose and cheap.
The headset is very tight and uncomfortable, this must have been built for children and they did not label it.

Other Thoughts: I would not buy this if you are a grown adult. Maybe for a teenager or younger. The headset is so small that it has not fit my friends or I in our 20's. Its almost painful to have on after 30 minutes of gaming. While the sound quality is incredible it is not worth the discomfort.
