    Don't buy Turtle Beach, they don't last

    My son received these as a gift and after three weeks, the microphone stopped working. I went through all of the troubleshooting steps on Turtle Beach's website to try and resolve the problem, but nothing worked, so as suggested, I contacted Turtle Beach. By the time Turtle Beach customer support got back to me, I'd already returned the headphones to Best Buy and gotten the Sony Gold Wireless headset (Turtle Beach's response when I told them the headphones had been replaced? "Thank you for trying our product, I'm sorry it didn't work out.") This is the second pair (this model, and another model) of Turtle Beach headphones that have just abruptly stopped working for us in the past 2 years or so. Each set was immaculately cared for, and still broke in a short period of time. We won't be buying any more Turtle Beach products. I do give props to Best Buy though for making the exchange quick and easy. Unlike Turtle Beach, Best Buy made the return painless and now we have a headset that works as it should.

    I was what some would consider a blindly loyal Turtle Beach fanboy. This headset cured me of that real quick. There is no separate volume control for voice chat and game chat. Nothing you do in the console menus can change this either. Voice chat was always blaring way too loud and I couldn't hear the game audio. When playing a game like Rainbow Six Siege or Battlefield, this headset is useless. The sound profiles even sounded terrible for the game audio when running on muted chat audio. I would highly recommend you don't even touch the box. I ultimately bought the Sony Gold Wireless, which I was able to price match through Best Buy from another retailer for $64.99. The Sony's were way better. Don't buy these Turtle Beaches. Ever.

    I like this head set. I have sevral wired headsets and this one is my favortie but not without some drawbacks. Pros: light weight good controls great sound quality mic seems well built Cons: smaller ear-muffs (on the ear vs over the ear) discomfort after long play ( I don't notice it until I take them off) They are small for my BIG head... This set seems to be about hte same size as the offical sonys .. I hope they hold up better. I have a larger head so the fit is a problem for me... my playtronics fit much better but the sound quality on these make this headset my go to pair. They feel fine while playing and are light enough for long game sessions but my ears hurt after I take them off.

    Nice and comfortable headset with great amplification of noise during game play when utilizing the USB connector. Was able to hear enemy footsteps and which direction they were coming from. Had these for a little less than a year and it started to go out to the point where only one side worked intermittently while the other side completely died out . I'm not sure what kind of warranty Turtle Beach offers but I had already misplaced the receipt and I didn't purchase the additional warranty through BestBuy. Lesson learned. Won't buy again.

    I normally love all my turtle beach purchases but these headphones are the absolute worst headphones I had ever bought. Thought these would be comparable to the turtles I have for my Xbox but they aren't even close. The headset is light, flemsy and poorly put together. Felt like I was going to snap them in half putting them on my head. The pad on top for your head might as well be plastic and gives zero comfort. I took these out of the box put them on my head for 3 mins then decided to return them. If you need a cheap pair do not buy these, buy an off brand for less or if you can afford $30 more get the PX24's.

    I was looking for a headset that wouldn't break the bank but give me decent sound and a good mic...this headset was the one I chose to buy, it hasn't disappointed yet. I use it on my ps4, playing black ops 3 and the sound it gives out is awesome and the mic is very clear from what my friends say on the other end. I also listen to music on my computer with these and even though it isn't amplified they still sound very good....this headset has a separate usb to audio cable that connects to the ps4 and the headset connects this for the amplification part...the cable doesn't work on the computer and the headset has to connect directly to the computer or speaker headphone input

    I purchased and returned about 4 headsets before settling on this set. What I wanted the most out of my headset - believe it or not - was to be able to ever do slightly hear myself while I’m talking. None of the other headsets did that for me. I really hate the dual wires coming out of each earphone, but I like the adjustable microphone and getting that voice feedback with these. I’m afraid that one of these days when I go to take off the headset, I’m going to rip one of the wires out.

    Nice pair of starter headsets

    This is my first pair of headsets, so the bar was pretty low. But I'm quite happy with them. I have a big head and it fits it just fine. The ears a covered and I can tell which side enimes are coming from in a pretty noisy game. The mic is nice, doesn't pick up background noise like fans and stuff, unless it's very close to the mic. Doesn't even pick up my breathing, just talking. And I'm a bit of a mumbler, so I'm happy with that. Overall , nice starter headphones. Not top of the line, since they feel a bit cheap and the headband area could be more comfortable, but good for what I use it for.

    Pretty Unbelievable For A Cheap Headset

    I thought I was going to regret buying this, but this headset was actually pretty decent, surprisingly. The sounds were great for a headset* (Headphones have the best quality because they dont support the microphone). The thing bad about this is that the wire is a bit on the long side, I always accidentally run the wire over with my chair. A major problem is that the mic is absolutely horrible!!! But hey, a 20 dollar or so headset with great quality and plenty of space for your ears? Great buy. I use this for competitive gaming and the 3D sound NEVER fails me! I LOVE how there is so much space for my ears!

    I have bought turtle beach headsets ever since I got a PS3 back in the day. I got this headset for my PS4 a while back and I dropped in one too many times and broke the microphone connector. So I had to buy a new one and it has been working fine ever since. The only fault is the durability, so make sure you store it in a place where it won't fall. The sound quality is good and the mic quality is fantastic. This is a good purchase if you don't want to spend the money on the top end headsets that are either wireless or what ever. Easy to connect and manage. Would recommend!

    Awesome for PC gaming, really good sound and mic

    I use discord, Steam, Blizzard games, Origin, GOG...etc. I have been a pc gamer since 1990. For the cost the sound quality you get and the fact that your voice is crystal clear, proves that you don't need to spend a lot to get good quality voice/audio. Music, games, skype, movies all sound great. But the treat is how clear and good the audio is on a PC talking through discord. Works great. Communicating while playing overwatch is a breeze and actually sounds good. Just really though...configure your PC correctly to get the most out of these. Awesome buy!

    Nice headset, but removable mic has issues

    Purchased one of these for my son for Christmas, and initially the headset seemed great and had good sound for the price. But after a couple of weeks he complained that the microphone was "staticky" and kept cutting out. We exchanged it for the same model, only to have the same issue. Not sure if it's an issue with this model, due to the removable microphone, or we just happened to get a couple of lemons. Eventually we returned that one and switched to an Astro A10 and have had no issues.

    I've only had the headphones for a few weeks. I mainly bought them for late night gaming while my wife is asleep. She does not hear any of the audio and I hear it extremely well. I've used both the amplified (straight to PS4 via USB) and straight to controller setup. Both are wonderful and I am very happy with the quality. I've worn them for a couple hours on end with no comfort issues. Microphone seems to be good quality as well, and like that I can disconnect it.

    It is a plug and play. The sound quality of the headset is great. Even with the volume turned all the way down (one step above off) I still hear everything with in the game and my team mates I am playing with. The only reason I am giving this a 4 star is because I was hoping this headset had game and chat volume controls on the headset and I wouldn't have to go through my console settings to change the volume levels. Still, with the price of this headset. You can't go wrong.

    These headphones felt cheaply built, not very comfortable to wear. The audio was way too quiet despite multiple attempts to adjust settings. Also, the sound didnt work in the right channel speaker. Maybe it was just a bad set but I was disappointed. The box was already partially crushed when I bought them, sure enough they didnt work. Returned them.

    These work fantastically, and the price is perfect. Very comfortable, with 1 minor exception being the top part that rest on your head. It has a small padded section, but honestly I could barely tell there was any padding at all. Only noticed it after wearing them for about 3 hours, so honestly it's negligible. Cord is about 3 feet, but has an additional cord that can extend that another 10 or so feet but then you have to hook it into the usb. Detachable mic, works great as well.

    I was recommended this brand by one of the sales associates. They claimed they were one of the best and by the looks, specs, and functionality of the product, I agree. The microphone disconnects and that's pretty cool. We also use these for our daughters iPad whenever she's playing on it. Great price for a great headset. I probably wouldn't even spend the money for the bigger, fancier models. This model is awesome and does everything you could want for the price.

    I was looking for a headset to replace my old one which ended up not working well with the microphone. I wasnt looking to spend much because I had just bought the first one within the previous 2-3 months. For the price, this headset gets the job done. Does a good job of keeping outside noises out (within reasonable expectations) and keeps gaming sound loud and clear. Meanwhile you dont mistreat the headset it will keep working for quite some time with no issies.

    Purchased for my son for Christmas and by February they weren't working. Reached out to Turtle Beach for replacement the first of February, per their instruction and determined the mic is the problem. We were advised a replacement mic was mailed, and they offer no tracking service one parts are mailed. It's been over a month an still not replacement part. I'll pay more for a headset that can more easily be replaced and tracked.

    If you're looking for the best gaming headset for a low price, these are perfect for you! I recently bought some of these Turtle Beaches and I have to say, these are one of the best gaming headsets I have used for my gaming. The sound is really great that it actually sounds like you're in the game! The sound of the mic is incredible also! When I play with my friends online, they can hear me great! I was really satisfied with these turtle beaches.
