    TRUE GAMERS ONLY

    OK!!! I’m going to start off by saying I’m a true GAMER... 24hr gaming sessions.. been playing games my whole life.. now I’m a PS4 gamer and a PC gamer.. This HEADSET IS MILES APART FROM THEM ALL I’m talking specifically in the PS4 category SKIP PAST THESE OTHER HEADSETS REVIEWS FOR MY TRUE REVIEW ON THIS I have used the Astro a50.. great sound.. battery life after months literally goes to life support LoL.. over time the button on the ears fade .. decent.. REAL HEAVY.. headset.. TERRIBLE MIC Astro a40Tr.. great headset.. great MixAmp.. sound quality great.. mic is TERRIBLE.. Also on PS4 the MixAmp echos in party chats.. if you don’t believe.. just do a quick google search and come back.. Turtle beach elite 800.. great all around headset.. battery life fades.. VERY EASY TO BREAK...buttons on ears are touch sensitive.. not very loud.. Hyper cloud revolver S.. TERRIBLE FOR PS4.. No chat and game mix AT ALL.. literally TERRIBLE..DONT BUY FOR PS4 Razor Thrasher $250.. TERRIBLE.. no equalizer.. no audio mix.. no bass boost.. surround sound sucks and party chat is very robotic sounding when surround is on.. OHHHHKAYYYY.. So now we get to the RIG 800HS First foremost.. a sturdy headset.. very comfortable.. especially for my big head.. mic is EXCELLENT.. easy to use up or down mute.. SIMPLE.. just like the A50 Game Audio/Chat mix.. IS PERFECT AND SO EASY TO DO.. right on the ear.. small little nob.. most of the other headsets don’t even have this or let you do this in the PS4 party settings.. THIS IS A MUST.. 100% WIRELESS.. BUT.. you CAN CHARGE WHILE YOU PLAY.. JESUSS CHRIST THANK YOUUU.. it is the same cable you use to charge your controller.. WOW.. AMAZING.. 4 equalizer settings.. at a touch of the button on your right ear.. all pretty decent.. .. Doesn’t have 7.1 or any of that stuff.. But nowadays.. that is just a selling point headsets use to sell.. not that important if you have headsets like this that can do all of that.. I’m going to give you the honest truth.. (Ease of use (Wireless no cords.. buttons....setup..etc)11/10) (Party CHAT Game Audio mix..10/10) (Equalizers.. 7/10) (Pure Volume loudness.. 7/10.. 10/10 would be ears bleeding) (Battery Life 10/10.. also can charge and play at the same time) Price for this is only $159.99 All the other headsets are 200+ and all have very bad killer points.. For the amount of money and the easy of use and THIS IS MIND BLOWING..

    Great headset to play with surround sound really helps to pinpoint where those other guys are sneaking up on you from. I0 didn't realize when I bought them that the wireless hooked up to the IR port, but the response time and directional quality are outstanding. I had to learn how to configure my sound settings so that I can hear when I am not using them and then reconfigure when I do. That is really the only downside. Not sure if these work with multiple players on the same console?? Only one IR port in back of the PS4 pro, and the settings don't reflect the use of multiple sound channels. These might just be useful for single player type action. Thus only 4 stars this time.

    Terrible Sound

    Just purchased these tonight, as my son wanted to upgrade from his Turtle Beach 400s. Was going to go with the TB 700s but these looked pretty great and the sales associate highly recommended them. He just hooked them up, adjusted all the sound settings etc. and the sound is awful. His TB 400s were much louder than these. I can actually hear him talking to me when they are on the highest volume. I was expecting alot more than that for the higher price tag than the TBs. Pretty disappointed. The reviews were great but we dont care for them at all. Going to return them tomorrow and try the TB 700s since we have always had great luck and great customer service with Turtle Beach!

    The sound is great! , connected in 5 mins. Watched wonderwomen with these on and that movie went from 10/10 to 20/10 picked up everything. Gaming just aswell! mic was on point no issue can get out ur way to. The reason I choose these were the fact that 200 and up headsets I read tends to have little things that go out that breaks a whole headset easy like a luxury car. This is the best bang for you buck. And for 20 bucks more 2!.. Yes 2! Years warranty. So you can breathe easy when you finally break these. And did I mention the sound a crazy good?

    The surround sound during game play is very nice. Headset controls are convenient and we'll placed. The self adjusting gear is comfortable and simple. The only down side really is the need to change the sound settings to switch the output to the IR port. Then, if I want to go watch a movie on Netflix, I have to go and switch the settings back to HDMI. Not a simple plug and play for multiple purposes, unless you're going to keep the headphones on all day. Not sure if they are all day comfortable or not. No idea how multi player sound would work on the same console either. Maybe there is another setting for that? 4 out of 5.

    Coming from a gamer whose every disc is scratch free and setup is spotless, mid range priced headset are the way to go. No offense, but I tried both Astro, and Turtle Beach, both wired and wireless. Not a fan, I've always had problems with either operating or charging. If you don't want to drop mid prices the original Sony PS4 headsets are fire too, had a set for going on 6 years. $$$ doesn't always guarantee quality.

    Very nice sound and great range for wireless BT. Cool features that allow you to easily bring voice chat to the front or in game sounds to the front while gaming and chatting. Very comfortable to wear even during long excursions while gaming. Noise cacelling is top notch as well. Just a bit over priced for the overall performance of surround sound. Look for them on sale if you can wait.

    The heat set is super light and very comfortable on your head. All of the features are easily achieved with well-placed buttons and a good mic. My only complaint would be volume. Dumping big money into a head set, you would expect this to be extremely loud. The sound field is big, but the volume leaves a little to be desired.
