    The Perfect headset

    Lets start with the build quality, This head set is built to be used OFTEN. It's not flimsy, you can tell Microsoft did their homework. It's got a solid construction that feels good on the head and after many hours of game play has not slipped or bothered my head. It's lightweight has me wondering why my Trition headset was so heavy. Deathlok OG on Xbox Live (Games and Apps Tested with Headset) Netflix, TV, Strider, Call Of Duty Ghost, Forza 5, Twitch, Dead Rising 3, Ryse, Tomb Raider, Titanfall Beta, Project Spark Beta, Killer Instinct. Ear Cups: There big enough to encompass your ears with out being overly hot due to the use of micromesh which while soft allows for optimal air flow making them less of a strain for those of us who marathon game. Audio: Booming audio with out the "Triton HUM" or the Turtle Beach ECHO" I have used both the NEW XO 4 and XO 7 #From Turtle Beach# they still have the echo# This headset has NO draw backs I have found# It's crisp clean audio# Price: $10 Cheaper then Turtle Beach with = if not better quality with no set backs. Ease of set up: Xbox One has been called many things "Xbox One, the all in ONE Entertainment unit" and so on, this have taken that to the headset as well. It has ONE #1# Wire. I like that if I want to play a game or watch TV while my girlfriend is sleeping I can whit this headset hooked up to my Wireless controller and the thin cable that goes from the headset to the chat adapter to the controller. I have owned many, many turtle beach and Triton headsets. I am so pleased with this one that I will never switch back.

    Pretty darn good for the price!

    So the good stuff out of the way: Great price in comparison to other headsets on the market. Comes with the headset adapter if you decide to use a different headset down the road. The sound is actually really good. Plenty of highs, and lows, even sounds pretty good when listening to say your iPod or phone. Minimal cord mess (just the 4' from the controller to the headset. The mic tucks in nicely and hides it's self. Very simple setup out of the box. The bad stuff: The chat can be choppy at times even when out of gameplay. Figuring out the "mix" controls and overall volume was a little bit tricky at first, and sometimes hard to balance between chat and gameplay volume. Would be a bit nicer if they both just had separate controls instead of a "mix" and overall volume control. Now the worst problem I've found with these so far is that the controller "crashes" sometimes. I'm not certain if it's because I have the volume turned up pretty loud or if it does it on its own. When you first setup the headset when you plug it into your controller it does an update to the controller itself. Essentially it's installing software drivers to the controller for the headset. Well, in the middle of gameplay at random times the controller will crash, and force you to turn the controller off and back on essentially doing a hard reset, and then it works fine again. It does seem as though it happens a lot more often when the gameplay gets really loud or there is a lot going on on game. I used these right away with Titanfall, and for anyone who has played it, you know there is a lot of chaos going on at times. So I turned the overall volume down quite a bit and it seemed to help, and doesn't crash nearly as much or not at all. Hopefully this is just a minor driver issue that they will eventually patch later on. So despite the software glitch I still think they're decent and will probably keep them, in hopes they will eventually work the kinks out.

    I'm not an audiophile and actually suffer from a good deal of hearing damage but I still have enough audio perception to judge headphones. I bought these for use with the Xbox One as I was having VOIP issues with my Turtle Beach x42 headphones and I was tired of changing batteries. To start, the headphones are not amplified and powered just by the line power. This does limit their potential but they still perform darn well and produce deafening volume. The things are admittedly ugly with their cone shaped headphones connected by a super wide strap.The integrated microphone swings plenty far enough to be to your liking and when not used stores neatly into the headband. The microphone is quite sensitive and sitting under a ceiling fan will be enough noise to start transmitting in game. Sorry guys! Speaking of game audio, the mic sounds good and game audio received through the xbox one controller sounds good, definitely better than the mono headset included with the console. These headphone use a 4 prong 3.5mm connector that is compatible with all phones and music players and the included controller audio adapter. The speakers have little bass to them. I actually find listening to bands like Linkin Park almost painful as they're almost pure treble. he foam padding is comfortable but does not seal the ears as well as the more expensive options out there. They are wired only with a 3 foot cord that is flat but I haven't heard any crackling or audio transmission through the cord, which is something I constantly experienced with the x42's. Overall opinion is if you want high fidelity audio headphones, keep saving. If you want some good gaming headphones for under $100 that can also be used for voice communication (these include the controller adapter for the XB1) then look no further.

    Amazing Headset for an even better price

    So typically I am very skeptical about buying actual branded products made by the same company that makes the system. Usually they are very cheap and honestly aren't very reliable. Microsoft has changed my mind completely. Not only is this the most comfortable gaming headset I own, but the best one I own and I've spent money when I had a PS3 to get the wireless $200.00 Trident headset. You get a lot more than what you pay for. The sound is fantastic, none of my friends complain about the mic sounding to quiet it's just about perfect. It is by far the most comfortable headset that I've had and the ear muff portion goes around your ear completely. I can wear them for 5 or 6 hours straight without being uncomfortable or complaining about them squeezing my head. Not to mention the way the next gen consoles do their sound, there isn't a hassle to hook them up to your tv to get in game sound as well. Perfect headset for the price and I would recommend it to anyone who doesn't want to pay over $100 for quality headsets because you don't have to. One negative is the fact that it drains your controller battery. But on the other hand I may be getting a little picky because I only had to charge my controller twice in the last 8 days. If you're looking into this headset it is definitely worth the money and you'll be more than satisfied.

    Great sound, Not so good voice and function

    Ultimately I would only recommend this product to somebody who doesn't have Xbox live friends to play with. As it has great sound, I found the microphone is extremely quiet. I'm always being told that I cannot be herd which is very annoying especially with the problems that plague "Xbox live party". Amongst that problem the microphone is not very maneuverable and the thing I find to be the biggest issue is that there is no option to have the microphone on the right side of your face. its only functional on the left. I do not know how big of a difference it would make but it drives me nuts when the microphone is always in my line of sight especially given the fact that I basically have to eat it (and scream) to be herd. Ontop of those problem the headset either works when it wants to or has a loading process that I was never informed about. Turning your remote on and joining a party chat, the headset either doesn't work at all or takes thirty seconds of fidgeting to work. Sometimes I even press the mute button to see if its working properly and the orange light does NOT* turn on, indicating a chance that it isn't even connecting properly. Buy this product if you are a SINGLE* (having no friends) competitive gamer in the market for a cheap headset. Purchasing it for any other use, you will find it to be near useless as it will only drive you up the wall or into an insane asylum.

    Great sound, comfortable fit

    I bought these so I would not wake up anyone in my house playing games when they are sleeping or if they simply do not want to hear me playing games. The sound is clear and does have a nice depth to it considering the price. I consider myself an audiophile and feel I do not lose much from the games I play while wearing this headset considering the price point and my amount of use. Both chat volume and game volume can be controlled independently. The headset is wired to an adapter that plugs into your controller which is included with the headset. No wires need to be run to you television or Xbox itself. The headset itself is comfortable although it is big but so are any headsets similar to this model. The microphone for chat tucks cleanly and seamlessly out of the way when not in use. I do notice the microphone picks up a lot of background noise. My ceiling fan at medium setting will cause the microphone to pick up sound causing me to transmit chat at all times when not muted. I am not sure if there is a setting through the xbox itself to control this. Besides the sensitive microphone and the bulkiness (which is again normal to headsets like these) I would definitely recommend this product to anyone looking for a headset for their Xbox.

    Excellent budget solution for Xbox One

    Picked this up for $60 and I'm very impressed with the quality of the sound, the quality of the microphone, and comfort of the headset. Sure, for $60-$80 you're not going to be getting true 5.1 or 7.1 surround sound, but I think that the Xbox One and this headset do an admirable job of creating a good audio experience. I'm not an audiophile, but they sound great to me! My friends also say my voice sounds perfect through the microphone, which is really slick the way it hides nestled up in the headset. Setting it up is also super easy. Just plug the headset into the adapter, and plug the adapter into your controller. That's it. Now you get audio and can do chat through the headset (don't forget to mute your TV!). Last, I've worn it for a few hours at a time and have found it to be really comfortable and lightweight on my head without feeling cheap. Overall, I think if you're in the market for a more affordable solution for headphones on your Xbox One, it's a great buy.

    Very Good Headsets!

    First off ladies and gentlemen, out of all the years of going to Best Buy THESE headsets made me make an account so that I could tell you how great these headsets are. Long story short, I was actually going to get the Turtle Beach XO's on Black Friday but they were out so I was on my way out the door but for some reason i turned around to see what else they had and that was the best instinct ever. The sound is very good in fact better than my $200 Turtle Beaches on 360. What impressed me by Microsoft is there is an update for a controller for some reason that wow'd me lol. Very crisp sound and i'm extremely picky when it comes to sound quality and they're comfortable too around the ears. Only thing I had a concern about was that the usb cable was a little short but that's no big deal at all to me. You kind of get a free battery in a way. The XBOX One is great but when I say this headsets takes your game to a higher level I mean just that!!! Because of these I put in a 8 hour session on Advanced Warfare last night!
