1 out of 5 eggsSound cuts on and off

Pros: Wireless
Okay sound quality
Work with both PS3 and Xbox 360 connected at the same time
Light and comfortable

Cons: The headset feels cheap for its price. I expected a more robust construction. Now to the big problem that made me return the item: These work %100 when playing games. But for movies the sound randomly cuts on and off repeatedly. This doesn't happen all the time but when it does it ruins the experience. I have done everything I could to remedy this problem. It just doesn't go away.

Other Thoughts: I think it's very odd that it works for games but not for watching movies. Does it have a brain? Like saying, oh, so you're watching a movie instead of playing games?!

3 out of 5 eggsEhh, Wireless is good!

Pros: *Wireless works better then advertised
*Easy to setup
*Can be used with just about everything with audio jack
*Like that it warns you by sound if the device turns off or on or from low battery life.
*10 foot Long USB cables. (in fact to long for PC use)
*Mic boon can be bent in anyway
*Can charge and use the headset at the same time.
*Battery life is pretty good.

Cons: *Feels cheap
*When the device sets idle for to long it shuts off if no audio is detected, But sometimes wont turn on the mic but only the headphone.
*Half the buttons are useless on PC, can't turn the audio up or down which would be nice if not near your PC.
*Audio sounds like an old AM radio, Only why to fix this is to run an Audio Enhancer (Breakaway Audio) to get any sort of good sounding bass.
*AUX audio port don't work on PC.
*Pads on the ear cups are stiff.

Other Thoughts: Its a good headset, But would look else where for this price if your all about quality. I got better audio with a $30 Gamecom headset from Best Buy.

The wireless on this works better then what it says, even when a ton of wifi equipment is around it. The cables are super long, The charging cable can nearly reach ont he other side of my house.

Read the instructions to properly pair the headset, also the AUX does not work if used on PC, Also the profiles do not work either, it even says so in the manual. No volume on the headset for PC.

I bought this at Best Buy for cheaper then what newegg is selling it for, but like I said the Wireless is good, but the audio could be better.

1 out of 5 eggsPX3 Garbage

Pros: Good audio quality when works

Cons: Never pairs with base, can take an hour to get it to work properly, shuts itself off after 5 minutes requiring another hour to turn back on, almost non existent customer support, horrible battery life. Mine never lasted more then an hour off the cord, and after 9 months I could no longer take off the cord

Other Thoughts: Dont Buy, waste of money

3 out of 5 eggsHigh tech but VERY uncomfortable

Pros: high quality audio from both speakers and microphone, great flexibility in adjusting the headset (easy movement of the mic in literally all directions, extension of the head piece), extremely long usb/charge only cord which allows me to keep the headset plugged in but still feel as thought I'm using it wirelessly because I can reach every corner of my room without removing the headset,

Cons: microphone inexplicably shuts itself off regularly when the headset is not used for over an hour, and there is no way to know this has occurred until the person(s) with whom you are communicating says that they cannot hear you (it's an easy fix to disconnect the usb/non-charge cord from the box and then reconnect it to the box, but it is very irritating to have to do this several times a day). headset was initially very comfortable; however, after wearing it several hours daily, the padded band puts so much pressure on the top of my head that frequent headaches result no matter how I reposition it or how loose/tight I adjust the band. also, the heavily stitched seams on the ear cushions constantly rub the lower front part of my ears and irritate the skin enough that it's sensitive to touch and forming callouses/scabs. the earpieces themselves are so tight that they press inward on both sides of my head and make the headaches even worse, particularly if I'm wearing glasses. this is the only part of the headset that cannot be adjusted (the pressure applied between the earpieces), and it forces me to take off the headset frequently.

Other Thoughts: The tech aspects of the headset are excellent and beyond comparison, and the only reason I cannot give it a perfect rating is the extreme discomfort in wearing the headset due to the downward pressure from the band and the massive inward pressure applied between the ear pieces, making it feel as though my head is locked in a vise.

1 out of 5 eggsBuyers Beware

Pros: It has good sound when it wants to work. Also the distance you can go with this is pretty good too. Went to the other side of my house and didn't notice any pops or static.

Cons: Oh boy, where to start. First off, I'd like to point out how awefully made this headset is. Its made of extremely brittle plastic that will shatter on you if you pick it up the wrong way. I had this headset for one month and the bracket decided to pop off on me and only got worse from there. As of this review, I have this thing held together with electrical tape. Second, and what really gets me angry, is the battery life. If you look on the box, it says it can do over 6 hours of use. That's a complete lie. The manual also says that you can charge and use the headset at the same time. That is also a lie.

The battery life on this is, to be frank, complete garbage. I had this headset charging for over 13 hours and it could only hold a charge of 2 hours. Not quite like Turtle Beach claims right? And the charge while you play option? I couldn't tell, because I would detach the charge cable after I was playing a game or listening to music and it would just be dead and have to wait over an hour to have it usable.

The next thing to know about this headset is that it does not like to play well with wireless routers. The minute I cut my router on, the headset would not work at all. I heard you have to tinker with your wireless signal for this to work together, but why do you have to do that? With a headset no less?

For the final negative I have for this is the beeping. Oh man the beeping this thing does. Every five minutes it starts beeping at you when there is no audio activity so you constantly need to have some sound going in order for the headset to not shut off.

Other Thoughts: I mainly used this for my gaming PC and it worked just fine for the first month. After that, it just went down hill. Poor design choices horrible battery life, and the list can go on. This is a headset to go good with the PC I built because I wanted everything wireless so I didn't have to worry about cables and what not in my room. But the leaps I had to go through to get them to work was ridiculous. I've never had to literally fight a piece of equipment to work until I had this product.

As a final thought, I warn EVERYONE about the customer service for this company. If you ever wanted to get in contact with Turtle Beach, you can't call them up. You have to send them an email with proof of purchase and just wait for a response. Is that what you call customer service? Just wait around till you got someone to answer your email? This isn't a small company either since its been said to "the number one gaming headsets/headphones company" as according to their website.

I will never buy another product from Turtle Beach ever again. And I warn everyone who buys this equipment to not buy it.

2 out of 5 eggsTrying to be everything makes everything you do suck...

Pros: decent sound, music and games sound good. The big drivers help music with a lot of depth of sound.

Cons: I don't know if this is on everybody headset but with my unit there is a very regular, random, low beeping tone that comes out of the headset, it can be very annoying and there's no way to fix it that i know of.
After a few minutes the head set throws a fit if sound stops coming out and makes more annoying sound for another 5 min before finally shutting off.

Other Thoughts: IF YOU DON’T WANT TO READ THIS WHOLE THING JUST GET TO THE PART THAT SAYS “READ THIS”
I was really excited to get a pair of these for my PC. It was like "Ya it's wireless, and I don’t have to roll over my cord anymore, and it’s got a mic!" the cons far outweigh the pros... This headset is a bad idea. The idea behind it is that you can use it with any system, Xbox, PC, PS3, and its one of the only sets that TB makes for the PC, the only other one is 300$. Because it tries to do everything it does nothing well. Its multi-platform, but using the same set on multiple platforms is impractical and dumb. It takes way to long and is too much of a hassle to be worth moving regularly between say, your PC and your Xbox. There are very few setups where you CAN actually move back and forth and even fewer that work well. Having a set that is ONLY for your Xbox and a set that is ONLY for your pc is a much better way to go when working with your sound. On top of all of this the fact that this headset is so poorly designed and that there selling it for 150$ is almost insulting to me. The set up for the PC is confusing and frustrating. For the PC you have to manually download your presets to the headset using TB’s preset manager which is extremely difficult to find on top of being a waist of code that is confusing and doesn’t tell you if its working properly. (For those who are wondering, presets are like the EQ for your iPod, but for the headset itself) the PS3 set up isn’t much better. The presets that are built in are still not worth your time. It advertises 9 built-in presets but all you have to choose from are no base and no treble (sounds like a 60’s radio) treble with no base, base with no treble, or have too much of both, and the rest everything in between. In Xbox and PS3 modes its dampens noise when there is very little sound, theoretically so if you’re playing call of duty you can hear peoples footsteps seeking up behind you. Don’t try to listen to movies though because when Mufasa dies in The Lion King your headset thinks that Simba’s quiet tears are actually full of 12 year olds from call of duty trying to shove there knives into your squishy parts.
The headset really does throw a tantrum when you leave it alone. 5 min of no sound… beeps for 5 min before actually shutting off. So when you leave it on the couch because you’re done playing video game, instead of oh I don’t know just shutting off after 5 min. It tries to call you back for another five minutes so you can shut it off manually! IT TRYS TO CALL YOU BACK… and it’s not like you’re going to hear it from the other room right? That is… unless you’re like me and you ware it almost all day but aren’t necessarily using it… so it beeps in your ear constantly…
READ THIS:
The only thing this thing is good for is playing call of duty… if you don’t play COD all day, don’t buy it. Period. Logitech makes some great PC headsets for a much better price. Turtle beach does make some other good stuff too

1 out of 5 eggsDo Not Buy these at all

Pros: they worked for almost a year

Cons: They broke along a screw I thought it was my fault/ then they broke on the other side same spot, finally today they started falling to pieces the two earpads are hanging by wires rendering it useless. In all this is a very flimsy product for 100+ dollars. It would also randomly drop sound making push the volume up only to have it silent.

Other Thoughts: I did not buy these from newegg, there were purchased from a local walmart. In case this is important I do not think it had anything to do with the place of purchase just the quality of product, or lack of.

2 out of 5 eggsOkay

Pros: -Wireless
-you can listen to your ipod and play videogames at the same time.

Cons: It is not what i expected really when they advertised that you can hear footsteps loader and lower the gunshot noises it does not do it by much at all i tried all the profiles on my headset while playing Call of duty and cant tell much of a difference at all.

Other Thoughts: don't waste your money on turtle beach this is my 4th headset from them the previous ones were defective. I am currently saving up money to buy the Astro gaming A50 headset
