    A good headset for beginners.

    First off let me begin by stating that I have had numerous headsets from Turtle Beach, and aside from one or 2 they all fit comfortably and worked to meet my standards for the price. Turtle beach is known to make reliable and good headsets and the customer service they have provided me makes up for any of the small issues I have encountered. Now for the review. I bought this headset as a replacement for the stock one that came with the Xbox one. It fits large heads comfortably, there is no long messy wires that get in the way, nor do you need to hook anything up to your tv. The headset comes with a usb to plug into the side of your XBOX One and into the head of your controller. You need to do this because your controller will require an update. This may be an issue for people who do not have internet. After the controller is updated, simply unplug the usb from both the controller and the headset and add the volume control to the base of the controller. This is where you will control the volume for your headset, both game or chat. Maybe you don't want to use the headset for gaming, maybe you stream movies from the Xbox and want a better sound experience, or don't wish to wake up your partner or children. Excellent news, the microphone is removable. So you can store it safety when it is not in use. There is a few cons that people reading this might want to be aware of, for one this runs off the battery in your controller. This obviously leads to your controller dying quicker and that can be expensive. Also, it isn't a very light headset and long term wear can be uncomfortable. Final quirk I noticed is a little bit of audio popping, but we can add that to dying batteries. All that aside it is a solid product and one I do not regret purchasing.

    Great Headset

    The Turtle Beach XO Four Stealth is a good gaming headset. I bought this headset when I bought my Xbox One, and it is awesome. First off, it comes with an adapter for the Xbox One controller. It is easy and convenient to use and includes a sound mixer for the in-game sound and party sound. There is one problem with the adapter, however. Whenever the battery dies and the controller turns off, the adapter stops working. When you turn the controller back on there is no sound. You have to unplug and plug it back in to make it work again. The bass boost on the adapter is an awesome addition to it though. The sound quality of the headset is good, and the surround sound is wonderful. This combined with the sound canceling makes you very immersed in the game. The microphone quality is also good, but there is another problem. The microphone can not move very well. It can bend, but it cannot move out of your face. You have to unplug the microphone to move it away, and sometimes it is easy to forget to put it back on. This means that if you are eating or drinking it may be a bit annoying. Despite this little inconvenience, the headset is still great. It is also very comfortable. I’ve had it for about a year now, and it is still working fine. I would recommend the headset, but don’t expect it to be perfect. I rate this headset 4/5 stars for these reasons.

    I don't think it's any surprise that Turtle Beach is synonymous with quality and their place in the market as it relates to gaming headsets. That said, how much do you need to spend and how does that relate to quality? I had planned on buying the XO One version, however this version was on sale and with my rewards I opted for this version instead. As poorly as this might relate to my personal self image, I have a giant head. These fit over my head just fine with adjustment room to spare. The headphones themselves fit very snug and do an excellent job of sealing out ambient noise. As far as vocal quality with the microphone, it's excellent for what it is. Gain is adjusted primarily by how far away from your mouth it is. There are settings within the Xbox to augment the capabilities of the headset. The sound quality is great, however I can only offer this as it relates to game sound, as I have not used it for music. Given the ability for the headphones to conform to the ear, they get HOT. Not through their operation, but by sealing in body heat. They do not use batteries, but are powered by the controller. I'm using this with the newest version (2016) of the Xbox S controller, and while you can plug them directly into the controller, I still used the included volume controller because it offers muting and volume control and adds virtually no bulk to the controller. I'm very happy with the quality and features for the price, and I think you will be also.

    This is my first headset purchase.. prior to this I was using the headset that came with the xbox for chat only. I spend quite a few hours online, so i wanted something nice without breaking the bank. This was a good compromise especially on sale. I've only had this for a couple weeks, so far I can say its been a good purchase. Turtle Beach has been around the audio game for a long time, so its a reliable brand. Although I have no other experience to compare to, I find the sound to be nice and the mic pickup and positioning to be good. I thought the plug-in adapter for the controller was going to be cumbersome and in the way, but its really not and all the buttons you need to adjust the sound and right there. I use the mute function a-lot as I tend to snack while I play and the button is right dead center for easy access.. i love it. Also, battery life so far has been consistent with what i was getting. My only complaint thus far is that after a couple hours of use it starts to get uncomfortable. I'm hoping there is a break-in period. I do have big ears, so getting the ear cuffs to completely cover my ears doesn't quite happen. I either get a soreness around my ears, or at the top of my head from where the band sits. Usually i can re-adjust and i'm good to go. Perhaps for me its just getting used to this style of headset.

    Great Gaming Headset

    This headset is excellent for gaming, and at a reasonable price. It is only wired to the controller, so don't let the "Wired" moniker turn you away from this product, you are not attached to the XBOX One at any time while playing, unless you're charging your controller. It would be 5 Star, except it sometimes does not let audio come through if you turn the XBOX on at the console, instead of on the controller. This is an easy fix, you simply disconnect the headset controller from the game controller, and reconnect. It's easy to disconnect. The bass boost is great, and has two settings. You can probably get away with the lower setting, but you won't want to when you're playing video games; the explosions are great with this headset. Another bonus to this headset is that you can use it with other audio sources, i.e. stereos, iPod/iPhone, etc. It's a regular audio jack, so it will double as your over-the-ear headphones if you want them to. You're buying a good product.

    Big sound for tiny money

    I had been looking at picking up a headset for my Xbox One for quite some time, and somewhat stumbled on this one on a random visit. I know Turtle Beach has some impressive setups, but I've only tried out the highest-range products that would make my car payment remind me not to forget about it this month. Tried these comfy, over the ear dealies on, and the sound made some stop in my tracks. For well under $100, this headset separates you from the outside world and focuses you on your game. With the bass boost control button on the controller attachment, I can meter how much I want my fillings to shake; and I don't even have to shout at the masses when in multiplayer since the microphone actually projects my voice into my ears, avoiding the 'I can't hear myself so I'm gonna yell' problem. With adjustable chat-to-game volume buttons, and a wide volume range, these headphones are ABSOLUTELY worth the money. The only downside of these is a rather short cable that attach you to your controller, but otherwise it's not enough for me to pan this product. Love it.

    I have purchased multiple headsets, searching for a perfect pair. These headphones are not only light weight, but you can wear them for hours and forget you have them on. I use these headphones EVERY day, excellent sound quality, excellent mic quality, and you can use these for Xbox 1 controllers and PC. The mic is easily detachable, so if you are using them for just headphones and don't need a mic, you don't need to worry about it getting in your way. Just pull it out. I literally have nothing bad to say about these headphones, the best I have ever used and I would recommend them to anyone who is considering using a headset for everyday use, such as gaming, and watching movies etc. I heavily recommend these headphones, they are noise canceling, and have great surround sound. The speaker cups themselves turn very well, and the headset can fit any head under the sea. Crafted by angles, and made of air. 10/10

    Overall a good product especially since it was on sale when a purchased it. I had the Xbox one stereo adapter for over a year and it worked before but somewhere along the way it stopped working with three different headphones I had. So I wanted to get a new one because I like to be able to play games without disturbing others. I had turtle beach headphones before for my xbox 360 so I decided to give them a try! The sound is wonderful and the microphone works great for chatting with others. The only thing keeping this from 5 stars is the headset is tight fitting on my head and becomes uncomfortable after an hour or so. Maybe a blessing in disguise though so I don't spend too much time playing games!

    I owned this headset for only a few days, so from a long term perspective I cannot elaborate on my experience with it. I ended up returning it because, hence my 4-star, the headset is tailored to people with smaller heads. Comfort aside, sound quality is great! It does include a Turtle Beach brand headset adapter which is a big plus. The adapter itself has integrated EQ options that really extend the performance boundaries of its stereo drivers. I used to own a last-gen Turtle Beach Tango (XP500 equivalent) headset so I do have genuine experience using their products. Although not as high end as the Tangos, the XO Four Stealth delivers premium sound with solid build quality at a cheaper price.

    I chose this because my xbox one mic died and didn't realize I picked up such a great product! The head set attaches via a cable to the provided sound controller that hooks to the bottom of the controller... Sound is then sent wirelessly from the console to the controller... I can adjust the volume at the controller and if I'm not chatting, I can remove the mic so it's not in my face while watching shows or playing games... Another nice feature is that you can adjust the balance of chat and game volume so one doesn't drown out the other... The ear pieces fit comfortably over my ears and provides decent sound isolation, and I now realize how much sound I've been missing from gaming over regular speakers...overall I'm very pleased with my purchase.

    Turtle Beach is simply the best gaming headsets for console gaming in my opinion. They have the most affordable price and sound. With the head set running simply off the controllers power makes this head set technically wireless if you remember back in the day with xbox 360 and RCA cables spliced through it. Iv'e owned dozens of headsets and brands and turtle beach seems to be the headset I always come back to when looking for a headset on xbox. Iv'e had this headset for 1 year and 6 months now and still works great with no complaints. Good comfort, good sound, easy sound mixing for game chat and game volume, and makes gaming on console twice as better experience.

    Purchased this headset to replace my old x12 which still work well but I didn’t want wires going to my tv anymore. This headset sounds great and chat is nice with the included turtle beach adaptor for the controller. Bass boost, mute and game/ chat adjust on adaptor make it very convenient. Got these on sale for $54.99 so makes it that much better lol. Only issue is when plugging in controller to charge the battery requires you to power cycle the controller for sound to resync. Obviously not a issue if using AA batteries. Overall Very happy with this headset.

    I had to buy these because none of my others were compatible with the xbox one.... Sound and features are decent.... The only part I wasn't used to and didn't like was having to be wired to the controller and plug into the adaptor. These also only work on the xbox one, but I bought them knowing that and that's what I needed them for so it fit the bill. Purchased these so I could watch movies with good sound and not bug anyone, and play some multiplayer games and be able to have live convos while doing it. I also bought these when they were on sale so feel good about the purchase.

    They are really good on noise cancelling, people will literally walk into my room and I won't even notice them unless they get in my field of vision or tap on my shoulder or literally yell. The noise is great, the bass boosting works, the volume control works because I can turn the game down and hear my friends talk. The size of the headphones are big, which some people may like and some others may not. Everyone's different, it doesn't bother me too much. I mean every high end, good quality headphones are big. It is a personal preference :) I recommend this to anyone who is looking for a good gaming headset around this price range.

    I've went to few best buy stores, for the Turtle Beach headset display and i absolutely loved these. The mesh cushions are very comfortable and so is the leather headband, mic monitoring is good along with bass boost (off, mid, and high) which you can tell the difference. They fit over the ear and firm, along with the speakers folding sideways to lay on your chest when your headset is around your neck. Mic is not as easy to bend for adjustment (since I'm used to having mine next to my face) but it gets the job done.

    I have owned many different headsets from turtle beach in the past and they have let me down, but when they made these for the xbox one man did they get a whole lot better. For starters they made the headset not to heavy but not to light when u have them on your head. The price for these were not to bad if u have around $80.00 to spend. This headset comes with a chat pad with 2 levels of bass boost. Finally, I don't know how many times I have had my controller slip out of my hands and the plug would get pulled out of the chat pad and that plug would not break.

    The sound quality is great. I've been using these while playing Halo 5, and I can hear things I didn't even know where there. For example in one of the multiplayer levels, I had no idea the whales made so much noise haha. They are extremely easy to connect. Simply attach the adapter to the bottom of your controller. My only complaint is sometimes the adapter will come lose from the controller while adjusting the volume and you'll lose audio before it reconnects again.

    rich, crisp sound. accurate when telling direction of noise in first person shooters once sound is set to "surround sound". only plugs into controller, has no wires running to xbox or tv, a big plus. 3 level bass boost available. volume doesn't go to insanely high levels but is more than loud enough for my taste (i've never turned it past 75% of full volume, usually staying closer to 50% full volume) headset DOES have mic monitoring, allowing me to hear my own voice and know i'm not yelling at my teammates/party chatters. would and have recommended

    Got this headset for my husband as a gift, after reading multiple reviews I chose this one because of its high demand and stars! I was looking for a wireless headset bit all of them were above my price range. Well this headset came with some sort of adapter that you hook into the controller and the headsets auxcord plugs into the adapter, I love this feature because it was close to wireless as you're going to get. Very sturdy and doesn't look cheaply made at all, I'd give this 5 stars ONLY if it was wireless overall completely satisfied!

    These headphones are good. Great sound and fairly intense bass. The price was fair for the quality received. Adjustability is nice and makes it easy for others to use. Headphones can become slightly uncomfortable but only after a very extended period. Otherwise, the pads around the ears and on top are excellent. Would recommend purchasing rechargeable batteries for your controller as this product drains the batteries much more rapidly than without the headphones. This product is overall a great purchase. Would highly recommend.
