Wish it was more durable

Pros: I love the sound, I love the bass, I love the fact you can control the volume and bass with the external amp. The loudness was just fine, can be very loud if you want.

Cons: I've gone through three of these headsets, two myself and one for my son. All three broke at around 10-12 months of use. Tried super gluing the headset back together ( breaks at the thin plastic extenders ) and got a few more months out of them. If they had metal bands, this would be a 5 egg product.

Other Thoughts: I love the sound quality of this headset so much, I keep coming back despite the fact they break within a year. I find it odd that the X12 has a seemingly more comfortable head band than the P12 or else I'd have given those a try. When I was buying these, they were only $58, now they are almost $80, I'll spend a few extra elsewhere for better durability.

Good but not Great

Pros: Decent sound quality
Good mic
No latency (because wired)

Cons: Volume adjustment isn't always split between channels evenly and while adjusting introduces a lot of static
Tries to crush your head and if you stretch it out enough so it doesn't (slowly over a few months) the outside of the band breaks (in my case just after the warranty was up)
Way too long of a cable
Constant low level his from the amp

Other Thoughts: I never tried to get a replacement even though it is technically broken, I just put some tape around the broken section and it's fine like that.
I have since stopped using it but for online gaming I may end up go back to it since it has a better mic than what I replaced it with.

Good budget headphones

Pros: - Got them as a gift in 2014 and they still work %100 til this day!
- Great bass with the massive drivers and bass boost
- I enjoy hearing myself through the headphones, I find it more natural
- People on the other end say the mic quality is high and recordings come out pretty clear as well
- For the first hour or so they are really comfortable to use
- Super long cord so I can get up and walk around without taking the headphones off
- Its very convenient to have a mute switch and volume switch on the cord

Cons: - Only real con I have is after I'd say about 2 hours of wearing them my ears start to hurt a lot. Its very irritating and I have to take them off for a bit before putting them back on. Honestly just gives me a good reason to get off my computer haha

Great Headphones for the price!

Pros: Great Sound Quality
Comfortable Fit

I've owned these headphones for over a year, and they still sound as good as the day I bought them. For the plastic used, I've yet to run into the issues others have had, and I'm not gentle on them. Ear cups fit great and are soft, so have gone hours without issues (other then taking them off if it gets to warm in the room and I've been sweating).

Cons: None yet, aside from the cord (it's really really really long), but these were made more for 360 console users then PC Master Race.

Other Thoughts: I've seen other reviewers with issues like broken pieces and bad sound issues, but in my experience I've had none of them. The hearing yourself through the mic can be fixed in Windows (Sound options, can't remember what it's called), but sometimes I do like it as I can hear if family is calling my name.

Great but comes at a price.

Pros: -Great audio quality for the price
-Versatile
-I was so satisfied, I have owned two.

Cons: They break easy, out of the two I've own both have broken right around the swivel joint. Now that being said they have fallen off my desk a few times but then again I have a pair of XO FOURs from Turtle Beach that have been through the same with no problems, so I think TB learned there lesson.

Other Thoughts: All in all if your planning to buy from Turtle Beach try the newer models.

Best Gaming Headset For A Small Budget

Pros: Exceptional sound for the price. The headset itself works great for gaming, music, movies, calls, etc. Great highs, mids and lows (hard to find a good set that can hit Bass hard, but still manage full range). The mic quality was a little shocking given the price plus how good the audio is. Better than a number of expensive standalone mics. Not to mention that the mic boom is metal instead of some plastic or rubber like so many headsets seem to prefer.

Cons: -The biggest con of most all Turtle Beach headsets is the fact that they use plastic for their parts. Specifically the adjusters/section that goes into the head band area and connects to the earphone brackets. It's a dual layer structure that cracks with time. This said, I treat my electronics well, and manage to get about 2 and a half years out of mine. Would be exceptional if they'd simply implement a little aluminum there.
-The cord is LONG. Not so much a con, and not why I took an egg off, but definitely have to use the included strap to wrangle it in if you aren't using them from across a room.

Other Thoughts: I've tried a fair number of headsets over the years. Mostly lower end, but I'm venturing into more expensive variants now (speaking of those around the 200 dollar range). For $60 and below, you can't get better than these. The plastic still makes me nervous, but if you're kind to your gear, you'll get a good lifetime out of them.

Did the job, but way too brittle.

Pros: - Descent Sound
- Ear Cups are fairly comfortable, was able to wear them for long periods of time.

Cons: As said these are descent gaming headphones, but way too flemsy.. i've owned 4 pair of these, with the original two being sent back to Turtle Beach for RMA replacement. They both broke on left adjuster arm above the left cup. The cheap plastic cannot take day to day wear and tear for more than 6 - 8 months. Given i did wear these almost daily for 1 - 6 hours a day, i would expect simple take on / take off use to not break these headphones. The 2 RMA models also broke in the same spot. Good components, bad materials holding them together.

Happy with the product.

Pros: The item was as described well packaged no problems.

Cons: This seller is not open on weekends. I paid for a 3 day delivery from new egg not knowing this. It wasn't mentioned anywhere on the sellers profile or the order from new egg. Just a heads up to anyone ordering that wants their order faster. The seller didn't even acknowledge that I had placed an order for several days or even charge me for the order. It was after I had sent them an email asking what was taking so long that my order finally was completed and my card charged and another several days after that before the item was delivered again after the weekend. Because they are not open weekends. Hope this helps the next buyer avoid some confusion and delays. :)
