Complete Product Description
The DPX21 combines two of Turtle Beach’s hottest products into one deluxe combo package. We took our battle-tested PX21 headset, designed for PS3™, Xbox 360® and PC/Mac® gaming, and partnered it with the Ear Force DSS, our Dolby® Surround Sound Processor, to transform the PX21 into a full Dolby® digital surround sound headset. The PX21/DSS combo pushes your PS3™ and Xbox 360® gaming experience to a new level with the thrilling realism of Dolby® 7.1 surround sound and crystal-clear communication over PlayStation™ Network or Xbox LIVE® and saves you a bundle over the cost of buying the PX21 and DSS separately.

The DPX21 gives you a competitive advantage by bringing out sound cues in the game that are difficult to hear with speakers - such as the footsteps of an enemy sneaking up on you or the loading of a weapon at a distance. By combining online chat while immersing yourself in DSS-powered Dolby® 7.1 channel surround sound, you can efficiently communicate with online players without being distracted from the game.

With its exceptional audio quality, online communication and comfortable ergonomic design, the DPX21 can help you become a better player while making it a lot more fun to play your favorite video games!

3 out of 5 eggsSound Quality is good

Pros: The sound quality was great, much better than my old ones. I mean absolutely fantastic, way better than my Earforce z2's

Cons: This is why it has a 3-egg rating. The size of headphones is very small. Much smaller than any other gaming headset I've used so far. They were uncomfortable and barely fit on my ears. On the box it says "Oversized" this should not be mistaken for "Over ear". I was defiantly saddened with this. I thought I would get over it but I couldn't. If you're going to be gaming then go for something like the z2's. This is why I am returning these to get the Z Seven headphones made b y Turtlebeach, which are fully geared towards gaming.

2 out of 5 eggsFragile! Handle with care

Pros: Good surround sound tech,

Cons: Very very fragile, pivot point on one phone broke within a month. Subsequently repaired with tie wraps and tape. A kloodge if there ever was one.

Other Thoughts: Very disappointing effort for Turtle beach, a company with a good history in sound. C'mon guys, you act like you've never made headphones before... or even seen them.

2 out of 5 eggsGreat When they work

Pros: Clear surround sound audio, works with ps3,xbox360, and any component that outputs audio.

Cons: The wheel thing for game volume has been broken since day one. No serial number inside the headset. where it should be according to turtle beach. Cant get support for it as it requires an sn#.

Other Thoughts: I have been fighting with newegg since i bought them for an rma and they haven't responded in 3 months now.

1 out of 5 eggsDo Not Buy This headset or From This Company

Pros: Good headset for about a month

Cons: The headset ear piece broke off about a week after i got it, when i just pulled it off my head. I did the regular return stuff and sent it in. It took them 3 weeks to return the WRONG headset, after I bugged them for another 2 weeks they finally sent me the right headset with correct parts. The 7.1 and optical part never worked again, but i wasn't about to try to fix that. And today randomly the right ear piece stopped working, do to a short that can't be fixed. I will never buy this company again and i will never recommend this company to anyone.

Other Thoughts: DON'T BUY

4 out of 5 eggsGood

Pros: Long Chord, Great Surround Sound, Xbox360/PS3/PC, Mic has awesome pickup, Comfortable.

Cons: Bass Quality is lacking.

Other Thoughts: Unlike other users, my headphones have last over a year now without any problems that weren't my own(kids) fault. I like that I can use them on my PC, Xbox, and PS3. The surround is great, but I feel it lacks a little on the bass. It has some boost, but it doesn't feel quite right to me. I have been told the MIC quality is excellent. Definitely a giant step up from a Bluetooth.

1 out of 5 eggsSkip it and get the Creative Labs gaming series instead!

Pros: This headset is not that great. I tried in the PS3 and the PCs I have, different sound test were run with different games, operating systems, etc. The bass fell very flat (the dynamic response is only 20hz - 20Mhz, it should be MUCH lower than this for bass!). There was a great deal of humming and hissing in the background both with the normal setup and with the SRS 7.1 module installed. If you don't have a PC that has a special PDIF output on the card then you're in trouble because the humming/hissing won't go away so be warned!. Because of the cost of this thing versus the cost of say something like the Creative Labs gaming series, I can't recommend this set to anyone, sorry. I can only in good conscience give it 3 stars. I am currently using the Creative Labs Fat1lty gaming headset on the PC and PS3 and found the bass to be incredible and the device simple to use. It also has a removable mic which makes things easier. For those that say these headsets are breaking on them you have g

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: I have had these headphones for about 6 months now and have not had any major problems with them. First set of headphones I have ever owned and am pleased with the quality. I have been able to pick up on small nuances in music that I have not been able to with other listening devices. The bass adjuster works well and allows me to decide how much bass I want. The mic also works very well and I have had no issue transmitting or receiving audio chat from others

Cons: I enjoy listening to jazz and screaming high trumpets, and at times when the trumpets get high enough I notice some crackling in the audio. When I turn the volume down the crackling goes away, but I never play anything too loud to start with.

Other Thoughts: Overall a very nice headset that I enjoy listening to music over.

Pros: - good sound ( while it lasted )

2 out of 5 eggsLasted 2 months then it broke

Pros: Long Wire
Excellent Sound

Cons: Price
Cheap materials
Lasted only two months then it broke

Other Thoughts: I bought this for $150 two months ago brand new not on newegg but some other store. All of a sudden now after two months the headset broke how I just put it on my head like any other day and it broke that simple. Turtle Beach has used the most cheapest material that they could have found and assembled this product. Just be aware that it might break. The price is a little bit too high also.
