    Awesome as Your First Headset

    Ok, getting to it, the PX21 headset is awesome… for the money you pay. Now, I’m not saying that in a negative way. It’s just the truth. Retailed at $79.99 it’s a hell of a deal for a headset with the name Turtle Beach on it, with the capabilities of sound AND chat on both the PS3 and Xbox 360 (and PC and Mac as well, but come on, who cares? There are a few ups and downs though, so here it is. The pros: The headset has features that make chatting and playing a game more engaging. You can control not only the sound and chat volumes independently, but also the bass. That explosion didn’t blow out your ear drum like you had hoped? Turn it up, and enjoy the hearing aid you’ll be using from now on. And that is not over reacting. The volume of this set is intense. If you turn it up ¾ of the way and set the headphones next to you on the couch, you can clearly hear everything as if the TV’s volume was on. It also features Chat Boost which automatically turns the volume up on chatting friends if you’re in a loud gun fight for example. Speaking of chat, unlike the stock headset for 360, when you speak into the mic you can hear yourself loud and clear. So you can not only hear the level at which you’re speaking, that greatly minimizes random screaming in the middle of the night waking up your wife or infant, but it also lets you hear yourself moan and cry when you keep getting shot in the head by campers. More pluses include USB power which means no batteries to recharge or replace, a mute button, and a stereo expander, that when turned on, makes the sound seem wider, surrounding you more instead of just straight up stereo sound. Speaking of stereo sound, on to the cons: A few things are going to hit you right off the bat. You will feel like the set is cheap. It’s fairly flimsy especially after a couple of months of use when it gets worn in. It still feels like it will hold together nicely, but it just gives you the feeling you’re going to break it when you’re moving it around. Which is good or bad depending on the way you look at it. I’m the type of guy who needs to feel the weight of something. I appreciate that the set is light for the sake of comfort, but sometimes I just don’t know my own strength. The clip for the amplifier box is notorious for breaking off due to poor manufacturing. Also a little gripe I had was at the end of the cord, the cable splits off to the USB connection and the audio jack connection. Well you have roughly 6 or 7 inches of leeway because it cannot be separated anymore than what it already is. Which means whatever you’re connecting it to needs to be pretty close together or else you’re going to need some extra cables to expand the length. Something else that I’m not sure is just me or not, but I had a problem with my cable that connects my amplifier box to the 360 controller. It was not picking up the mic and it was also causing another problem with the volume of the game vs the chat volume. Turtle Beach sent me a total of 3 cables with the final one being totally different with it’s own little control box for volume on it. That worked like a charm and fixed all the problems that weren’t from manufacturing. But honestly, before that cable came I was deeply regretting this set. So that little fix made all the difference in the world. Bottom line, the Turtle Beach PX21 is an awesome pair of headphones. Especially if this is your first pair, because what you get at this price you can’t go wrong. Just don’t go expecting 5.1 surround sound from these, remember, they are only stereo. I hinted earlier that stereo sound was a con, and it only is if you are used to playing in a 5.1 environment. This headset does pick up a lot of the sounds you wouldn’t usually hear and it goes above and beyond if what you’re looking for is something to let you play at night without waking anybody up. Aside from these few things I really can’t find anything else wrong with it. They’re comfortable even for someone with a big head like me, the mic sounds amazingly clear, you have complete control over all the sounds of the game, and it’s affordable considering the price headsets that are fully functional on both consoles go for. I would go as far as saying this set is something every gamer needs. So unless you’re really crazy about sound and you just need something to help you play at night, these headphones are perfect for you. There’s not much out there in this price range that does the things this set can do. Verdict: 4/5

    Perfect Headset

    Ok well I started out with the X11's by mistake and used those for two weeks before getting these, the X11's worked great as well. The friend who recommended me to get these returned the PX 21's and purchased the wireless X31's I think they are. Only problem is constant replacing of the batteries, even rechargable ones. Pros----Everthing and I mean everything all the features worked great. And the chat boost is a great feature I found myself adjusting the chat volume a lot with the X11's and also died at times while doing so in CODMW 2. I have a 5.1 Dolby Digital Surround Sound and at night I do not have it as loud as I want it to so the family is not bothered while sleeping. While this is not 5.1 it beats a low volume surround sound system at night and definitely beats my 50 inch hdtv speakers. The controls are easy to access and the clip helps out like you wouldnt believe the X11's also didnt have this. It is a good by for anyone thats want to enjoy the sound of the games they are playing. And the mic moves around great on the X11's the foam on the mic tip contantly would rub against my trimmed mustache and it just got really annoying at times no problem with this one for anyone with facial hair. And the clip is great to its another thing the X11's was missing. Cons-----The one thing I noticed is that the ear cups are not as large as the ones on the X11's I have kinda large ears and my ears could fit into the cups completely on the X11's these not so much its a snug fit but it doesnt bother me because how comfortable the headset is the other issue is the over the head cushion isnt as large and soft as the X11's. Finally, any of these headsets you are gonna be satisfied with except for the cheap model that is like $30 that is not for a gamer wanting to get the best sound it should be for PC only. The X11's and any model up works to full description. It was a great buy for me realated to gaming. Hope this helps.

    Won't last more than a few months...

    I'll begin by saying that I'm writing this review about 6 or 7 months after purchasing the 3rd (and final) pair of these headsets. I tend to prefer later reviews over ones made immediately after the purchase since reactions at that time (both positive and negative) tend to be knee-jerk in nature. You have a better sense of how a product truly is after using it for a few months. Anyways, I hope this is seen as a fair review as it's not my intention to slander the company or write some over-the-top negative review. I simply want to help others make an informed decision about purchasing these headsets. I also hope the company reads this and improves their product. I mostly used the headsets for gaming on my Playstation 3. I also used them on my PC for creating a few narrations for my college powerpoint presentations. First, I will say the headsets sound great with games. I could hear just about every subtle nuance that other headsets don't pick up. They were comfortable and the mic adjustment was very good. The sound/volume controller was also very good as there are separate controls for the game and chat volumes. I found this to be easier to customize than the Sony PS3 headsets as volumes tend to differ over various games. The controller also had a clip on it which I would attach to my shirt so I could quickly and easily adjust while playing. Anyways, I was extremely pleased with these aspects of the headsets. What I disliked about them are the poor craftsmanship. Like I mentioned above, this was my 3rd set. Now, I will admit the first set I broke was 100% my fault (accidentally sat on them.) The second set died about 6 months after purchase. The problem - something happened to the wiring that connected the headset to the volume control box (I could get the sound back when I would wiggle the wire where it entered the controller but it would go away as soon as I i let it go.) Thinking this was just an isolated problem, I went to best buy and bought another set. 6 months later the same thing happened again. I could understand it once, but the exact same occurrence twice in a row... In my opinion, that is the manufacturer's fault and poor quality. I didn't handle them roughly nor did I ever pick them up by the wire. They were always picked up by the headset so I wasn't at fault the last 2 times. In conclusion: I loved the headsets, but I simply cannot afford replacing them every 6 months. I think others will enjoy them, but buyers beware. I have since replaced these with the PS3 wireless headphones. The PS3's do not sound as good and aren't as customizable, but if they last longer than six months then I will gladly sacrifice the quality for longevity.

    Great Headset for the Price

    Posted
    Reebekili

    I read a lot of reviews on this product and other headsets as well and decided that for the price I would take a chance on this one. I play specifically MW2 on the PS3. I will address to two biggest complaints first. (1) Background noise or hissing, etc - I noticed this sound when I was setting it up and had zero sound output from the tv or game. Once I was playing or watching a movie it was gone. So for me it was a non issue and it sounded like the white noise you hear in large buildings. (2) Cords - The cord is 16' feet long, which was just the right size for me to get to my chair and have enough room that I was able to set the sound remote in my lap. I have a 52" widescreen. One end goes into one of the controller ports and they you have three connections, one to the headset, and two to the yellow red on your TV/Stereo. It has a jumper that attaches to the TV and then you attach the ps3 yellow and red into the back. Similar instructions if you are running HDMI. Either way the cords are out of sight to the back of the TV and not an issue. Now for the good stuff - the remote (in line) is great, you can control the game, mic, other peoples mic's, base, etc with the touch of a button. Directional sound is great, I can hear people coming from all directions. It took a little getting used and I died a few more times than normal because I was looking around, hmm is some really coming from behind me, turn, look, confirm, shot dead. Once I got that hang of it, it was much better than straight TV. Comfort, I dont have big ears so the cups fit fine, I was a little sore in the first 10 minutes but after that everything was fine. These have been great and hopefully they last. So for the price, $70-$80, I think these are perfect for those that want quality sound but don't want to shell out $150+ for some of the top models out there.

    This headset is WELL WORTH the $80 price tag. It is extremely comfortable. The sound on this headset is incredible. Especially for the new Call of Duty: Black Ops. I was able to hear footsteps from an enemy far behind me that I wouldn't be able to hear on the normal TV sound. The headset looks and feels great. It does not look like a geeky headset. It had padding (nice thick padding) around the ears, and on the top. So you never feel discomfort from it. Being able to listen to the chat and game at the same time may seems like it wouldn't work. But trust me, it does. I have no trouble listening and communicating with teammates while listening to any incoming enemies. You can have the volume as loud as you want, and it will not disturb anyone else. These are perfect for playing late at night. To make it all better, the headset works with HDMI. You don't need any different cables. All you need is the cables the heaset comes with. Just plug the headset in as it tells you to in the manual, and you're good to go. If there is one problem, it is that the cable is long which is good and bad. The good is that you can play as far away as you want and don't have to worry about anything poppping out. The bad is that the cable could get tangled up.

    Good Headset for its Price but not very durable

    Anonymous

    I needed a new headset really badly there was a wide variety but i felt this was a good headset and that it would last me a long time. I used it for about 4-5 weeks. Then one day i go to use it and the left speaker didnt work. I found out that the cable connected to the control box on the wire broke or got loose and that causes the speakers to stop working dont understand why this happened but it did maybe it fell or it got pulled on i dont know. I sure got mad though i just bought this headset for 80 bucks and now it wont work. However after a couple hours of trying to figure out how fix this problem i moved the cable a bit and i could hear the sound so i just pulled the cable down the front of the control box and taped it there. Few days later stopped working again and i couldn't get it to work again for a while so i just used the headset with only one speaker. But unfortunately two weeks later that speaker broke also. Till this day i still haven't been able to fix the wires but i found a way to tape the wire so both speakers work now just hope it stays that way. Having said this. This is a great headset its very comfortable and lightweight it sound great. The stereo sound is better than just listening to your TV sound. And while playing games like black ops or mw2 you can hear things you couldn't have heard without a headset. However this headset isn't very durable. After a while you feel like you could break it if you drop it on the floor or if you trip on the cable by accident and pull the headset. There are many other headsets out there that can last longer than this one and cost around the same price. This headset has many different issues and ways that it can break. The speakers can stop working, wires can break, you can easily break the speakers off from the top of the headset by accident, ect.

    Although the TB PX21 headset was awesome while it still worked (literally just quit last night, worked great for about 8 months) I was able to stay away from being knifed several times being able to hear my attacker before they hit. Worked great with Battlefield and Halo games. I mainly purchased this headset because I was sick of the MS chat headsets dying after a couple months of use and figured I needed an upgrade. Awesome sounds, things blowing up and it can get loud from time to time, but after all I had the volume adjustment at my fingertips. Crisp and clear audio from gaming and watching movies. The problem is that I'm 6'3" and the wire from the amp to the headset is too short. Even clipping it to my belt and sitting down the cord got pulled which eventually ended up killing the wired connection. First one ear then the other. It's not totally severed because the mic still works. The wire from the USB to the amp was overly sufficient measuring at 15 feet long, but the wire from amp to headset is around 2 feet (since I'm tall I need more like 3 feet). Probably a great gift for your gaming child that only needs 2 feet of wire. With the Mic right in front of my mouth my gaming friends would complain to me that I was too loud. So eventually the mic ended up over my head which they said was perfect. I guess I'm a loud talker. I am researching wireless headsets to replace this unit.

    Poor quality headset

    Posted
    Dakers69

    I purchased the PX21 for my daughter to use with her PS3. Within 3 months, we started having issues with it. The wiring broke from the headset to the volume control and lost sound to one speaker rendering the surround sound useless. Thinking we had possibly damaged it and since the warranty was out, I purchased another PX21. Once again, within a couple of months, this headset failed as well...the same broken wire issue. It was outside of the warranty period, but I purchased the 2 year warranty on it this time and returned it for replacement. Within a month, the ear muff pivot broke off...it was not dropped or abused...it just broke. The replacement headset I received failed in 2 weeks...again the wire broke going into the volume control. In short...I have purchased 3 PX21''s...bought 2 extended warranties and have MAXED out my warranty returns. Best Buy has been gracious to replace these units under their warranty, but has said no more. My current head set failed a couple of months ago. I disassembled the unit volume control and repaired the broken wire to the control board [not recommended for the average customer]. Both ear muffs have broken off where they attach to the head strap. I have repaired them as well with plastic epoxy. More than a dozen failures of this product...many the same failure...tells me they have a quality issue. They offer a warranty that reflects their confidence in their product or it would be a 1-year warranty versus 90 days. Kudos to Best Buy for making an effort to support a "defective" product...but I would avoid this product at all costs.

    Nothing's Perfect

    I got these headphones/mic 7 months ago and use them regularly. They work wonders when playing Call of Duty online if you have the expander(surround sound) on. They give you that feeling like you're really there, and often at times i jump and turn when I hear footsteps behind me. These have a little control box type thing that allow you to adjust bass, chat, and game volumes. The mic has an on/off switch. The clip on the control box is a big plus. When I first saw the clip, I thought I wasn't ever gonna use it, but I use it every time i wear them. I just clip it onto my pantleg and can adjust at any moment with ease. Also, another use that many people may or may not know about is when sitting in a COD lobby with a lot of other people with mics, you just plug this baby in and no more voices blaring through the TV. The only downfall I have with it is I like to listen to music when playing my games. That can be fixed by wearing one earphone from my MP3 player. Oh, and after many hours of wearing ( like 3 hours) the top of my head where the headphones sit gets a little sore. For $80, not too bad. Good investment for 3rd shift workers and late night gamers.

    I bought these after i tested the over priced Skull Candy gaming series and the Tritons. Lots of time and returns have lead me to my final answer. I am pretty picky about what i get for my monies. I would have to say that by far trading in some old games for some store credit or using BB reward points to lower the price tag a little, these are AWESOME. I play FPS online, all the way to Grand theft Auto with these bad boys and i am so happy. The sound, quality of build, and easier sound controls have been a blessing! A bass control? Awesome for more detail in sound. Like LOUD gameplay (if you desire) ?. AWESOME volume. being able to slightly hear yourself in the headset as you talk has greatly reduced my accidental yelling because most sets you can hear anything but the game so you dont notice your talking SO loud! Like i said. I searched and tested lots. Im a fan of skull candy's NEWER better quality sets and a bose fanatic. Sound is NOT a problem. I am SO proud to own these and even happier that i can stop looking! Thanks to my buddies for telling me to get these. They warned me about the others but i didn't listen. I was cheap about it and thats what i got... Cheap junk. Seekers reading this, just get them. If you dont like them Best Buy will take them back NO HASSLE. They know me by first name by now because of all my trial and errors. But it was worth now that i have selected these.

    I recently returned a similar Sharkoon product, and I have to say that this is what I should have bought in the first place. I'm a bit of an audiophile, so I am able to notice just a hint of background noise on these, but I think that's par for the course and it doesn't detract from them at all. For listening to music I have a set of Skullcandy Hesh that I'm very happy with. The PX21 is on par with the Hesh for sound quality, and the PX21 is more comfortable to wear. The mic is probably about the best design you can ask for. it easily bends to wherever you need it to be, and because you can put it right next to your mouth it won't be prone to picking up extra noises from your room. The control box is great too. The clip is a nice feature, muting, unmuting is easy. The independent knobs for chat and game volume is a great feature. You won't be disappointed with this one, even if it's a little more money than you were hoping to spend. One last note: use all of the cables that you are supposed to... I have an HDMI cable from my PS3 to my TV and I tried using the audio output from my TV, and fell for the oldest audio pitfall of all - ground loops. (my PS3 is on a UPS, the tv is not) Even if you have an HDMI cable and have your old RCA cable is tucked away in the basement, drag that puppy out and hook it back up. Use the RCA to 1/8" jack that comes with the PX21, and you'll hear the difference.

    Good Headset

    Posted
    JayK82

    The headset is a definite buy, if you are looking for an alternative for sound other than your display for the PS3. I currently have a 24 inch 1080p computer monitor, so connecting with HDMI provides very low quality sound. Using this headset as both system and chat sound output, the quality way surpasses that of the monitor. The headset provides rich deep sound with surround like quality. The only downsides to this device, are that it sits loosely in my PS3 USB slot, and will cut out the power ever 2 seconds until it is adjusted. It might be that I have one of the original models of the PS3, but it is definitely annoying when this happens on occasion. When it does happen, a simple reseat of the connection usually fixes it, with positioning of the headset cable. Also, there is minor feedback if your chat volume is near the game volume on the device. If you are sensitive to a little static, then I would suggest a better headset. Playing Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, it is an excellent headset for this game. I have it setup where game and communications are going to headset. The sound, mic, and bass all work great, with minimal setup and configuration. Other than a very little feedback, the headset is great. Again, a definate buy if your looking for a somewhat cheap alternative for your sound output.

    Decent sound, Uncomfortable

    This headset has decent sound. Unless you put and equalizer setting with it, it doesn't have good separation. The Bass setting also messes things up. The bass setting has too high of a cutoff and makes everything sound muddy. The way that the headset sits on your ear will put pressure on them, and they have a tendency to get hot. I've had them for a week now, and maybe returning them or taking a break from them for a while. They are actually starting to make my ears swell along the edges. I've worn more comfortable dollar store headphones. The mic, and chat boost functions are about the best features on this headset. The work very well. The inline chat control is also a very nice feature. I first had this feature on the Triton AX720s (too bad these weren't quality, I would never be writing on this headset) and couldn't live without it now. At this point I would recommend the cheaper Turtle Beach X12s. They are a far more comfortable headset. However it does lack the inline chat control (unless hooked to an Xbox 360) and chat boost functions. However, if you intend to game for a few hours they are the better choice. I know Turtle Beach can do better than this. This is the outcast of their headset line. Their other products are lighter and more comfortable.

    I bought these for my boyfriend for two reasons.... #1- Because I know he (and I) would love to have the advantage of being able to hear everything in the game very clearly. #2- Because I wanted him to be able to play whenever he wants, even at 2am, and I won't have to listen to it or feel like I am in the middle of a war zone!! The sound quality is great and I am impressed with how many things I can hear in the games that I never heard before. The mic works really well and it's nice to know it won't die on you like the bluetooth one always does. The part that I am disappointed with is the fact that the noise projects from the headphones almost as loud as if it were coming straight from the tv!!! If you are getting these for your kids or significant others so you don't have to hear the noise of the game, you will be disappointed too. If you are getting them to enhance your gaming experience then go for it.

    Ever play a game and you can hear just about everything happening on your teammates TV's with their blue tooth head sets in??? I thought one of the best things about this is headset is you don't have to worry about the volume of your tv feeding into your mic! The separate volume adjustments for the game and for voice chat is great! You can also just mute it if you're not in a talkative mood. I found that the sound is richer with the Expander option turned off which pretty much makes that feature useless. The bass sounds great! Hearing the bass of explosions in the background is almost surreal. The set up was very easy, one thing to note though, I use an HDMI cable to connect to my HDTV and the head set has the red and white audio hook ups that it needs. Along with my HDMI I had to plug in my old audio/video cable to the back of my PS3 and basically change the sound settings to play sound through the "AV Cart" so audio would play through the audio cables my head set was connected to. Overall, love the head set. Easy set up. Love the extra long cord allowing you to get comfortable and you don't end up bothering anyone while they're sleeping!

    At first my father got me a bluetooth headset and it had a very bad connection and it always hurt my ear after using it for over an hour or two. Then I finally decided to get headphone style that covered the entire ear and one that connects to my television and PS3, when I went to the store it was like okay I could get one that was extreamly cheap and easily breakable or I could get one that was a bit more costly but have a way better lifespan and better gaming qualities. I finally decided to get it. Once I finished the set up which was kind of dificult it was totally worth it right from the start it was amazing. That night I played online all the way to midnight and it was still comfortable. It is the best investment I ever made. Now we got another PS3 for the tv room and am definetly getting another turtle beach for it

    Headsets I've owned: Rocketfish wired gaming headset, Tritton GOW3, Logitech F540. Primary uses: Xbox 360 and PC gaming I bought these to replace the Rocketfish Gaming Headset I returned. They were compatible with everything and sounded great if you don't care about surround sound, but was still able to hear is something was in front or behind me. The downfall was the material used for the earcups. I would say I have slightly larger ears that point out a bit and they ended up hitting the inside of the headset and caused soreness after a couple hours of use. Also they felt really flimsy. I don't know what it was but the plastic just felt thin, but it did make them light weight. Switching between PC and X360 became a pain with all the wires and the mic is a little difficult to adjust up and down. Sidetones were moderate and not adjustable. These were the best sounding out of the group in my opinion. I ended up with the Logitech F540s for wireless with no surround sound.

    I researched for a new headset because my bluetooth was never that comfortable in my ear. I watched many reviews on youtube, read many reviews on various websites and I chose these. Let me say first, the sound quality is AMAZING. The headphones are very lightweight and comfortable. The microphone moves so if you don't feel like chatting you can move it out of your way. The in-line amplifier is great. If you don't want to hear the other people talking, just turn the chat volume all the way down. Problem solved. Need more bass? Turn the bass volume up. These headphones get very loud so be careful with the game volume when you are using this headset. I don't even think I have mine turned up half-way and it's LOUD. Overall I think this headset is a great buy and worth every penny.

    Improved by gameplay

    I never thought I'd say buying a new headset would improve my gameplay on MW2 but it really has, I was kind of skeptical of the cord and the fact that to head the game I'd have to listen to it through the headset. But I instantly got use to it and oh boy it sounded GREAT compared to my TV speakers, and the surround sound in the headset has helped me get kills in MW2 I probably wouldn't have gotten before, I can hear a lot more stuff than just my normal TV speakers and I can tell where people are with it. For me I suggest this one over the bluetooth headsets, for one they hurt my ears after a few hours and you gotta charge them, this one has a cord long enough for me and it doesn't need to be charged, plus you can use it to listen to movies and music, it's a GREAT headset in my opinion.

    Great Headset, until it broke

    The PX21 was the first "expensive" headset I tried and as such turned out to be one of the best I've ever used. However during the year I owned it I had to replace it twice, and eventually, just throw them away as the warranty ran out. Its hard to describe my dissatisfaction with this set, I enjoyed using it from day one and with a little wire work made it perfect with my preferences. The problem lies in the fact that I invested "as a gamer with a budget" $99 dollars on this set and underneath its great looking features, and appearance of quality, it still has problems with the wires cracking, and eventually breaking. If you decide to buy this set, my best recommendation for making them last is not to take advantage of the long wire it comes with, it eventually becomes twisted which then breaks it at the base and on the headset. Best just to keep it bundled up.

    No, I would not recommend this to a friend
