    I first went to best buy to pick up a pair of razer krakens, but the fact that they were not USB kinda killed it along with the ear pads being to small for my ears. So I went and looked up reviews on the turtle beach z22's. Probly a far better headset then I expected. The sound quality is amazing and the boom for the mic is nice compared to the kraken. Every sound comes out clear and the volume switches are nice when on skype or ventrilo and I still want to listen to music without it blaring. The ear pieces are nice and fit comfortably over my glasses but the only thing I wish was that they were pleather instead of the cloth. That's my only con to this headset. But otherwise then that it gets a 5/5. At this point in time it is a great headset. I've had them for a few months and they havn't digged up or scratched. Broken off anything. The wire is nice and thick so you don't have to worry about that. They sit great for hours of long gameplay with little pressure on your head. For the price itself you really can't beat these.

    I use the Z22 for recording a podcast with the Big Comic Page and originally set out to get Turtle Beach's Seven headset. However, after finding out it wouldn't be available in time for a recording session, I settled for this guy. I was surprised the sound quality was great as it was although it doesn't have surround sound so gamers might be disappointed with that feature missing. Like wise if you're on the move the wired setup might be a problem. Personally I'm still torn on whether or not I should have gone wireless, but for podcast this setup works. These things are comfortable! They're light weight and the the foam used in the headband and cones themselves allow for hours of comfort while gaming/recording. If you're debating picking these up just go for it, you and your wallet won't be disappointed.

    I am mostly very happy with this headset. It is comfortable to wear, lightweight, and sounds great. The cord lengths work well for me. Just generally nice. The mic boom is a little annoying for me. The boom is incredibly flexible, for the whole length, and the pivot point is incredibly stiff. I am really worried I am going to end up breaking it off one day. It's hard for me to speak to durability at this point, as I have only had it a few months. But so far so good.

    These headphones are very comfortable. The over-ear pads completely cover my ears and prevent the speakers from smashing my ears. They do not completely keep out exterior noises, though. The sound quality is excellent for my needs. I'm primarily a gamer and rock music listener, so I cannot really rate for audiophile application. These phones are great for my uses. I think they are good value for the price.

    The Turtle Beach - Ear Force Z22 headset is comfortable and easy to use. It comes with a handy multi control adapter which can connect to your computer and other audio devices. It blocks out white noise and provide an immersive audio experience. It can get a little tight if worn for an extended period of time. Overall it is a quality product and will not disappoint.

    Why did i buy this

    I've been owning a x12 headset for over 4 years, and it recently broke. When i went to the store to replace it i decided to upgrade to the z22. All i can say is this was a bad choice, as i use it for gaming and need to talk with my team, but the microphone is not working at all. It is not even recognized by the computer.

    Although sold as gaming headphones they work very well to use the voice-to-text and text-to-voice features on computers. The boom mike quit on the first pair after about 6 months (but that is with daily use). However, the company was great about replacing them. The Best Buy extended warrantee was worth the money in convenience for replacing them.

    I bought this a few weeks ago. You have to pay more since it's a Turtle Beach headset, but it's definitely worth the money. There has been no glitching whatsoever with both the microphone and the speakers. The sound quality is unbelievable and the in-line amp makes it even better! I would definitely recommend this headset to a friend any day!

    I bought these for my 10 year old grandson along with some other items. The cost was a little higher than I would have liked, however my grandson uses them constantly. The sound quality is good and they appear to hold up with all the wear and tear a 10 year old puts them through. He really likes them.

    The TurtleBeach Z22 is more than likely the best quality headset that i have used. Great audio quality, Dual audio stream, easy to set up, and a great price. Very durable and light design. Bass and Treble controls along with split audio/ voice volume control. Very glad a bought this item.

    This item was purchased as a replacement for a lower-level set of headphones from the same brand that was several years old and had survived heavy use. We moved to this product for the additional features over the cost. We are very happy with the purchase.

    They're a great set of headphones. My only problem with them is, since I wear glasses, I have to offset them a bit because they press the bends of my glasses into my head, and it starts to ache after a while. Other than that, they're great!

    Amazing Headset for PC! AWESOME sound quality, and the build quality was way more than expected. Very solid, it doesn't feel like it's going to break at all! The cushion for ears is very soft and keeps outside noise out very well.

    I was after a headset with usb connectors and not a 3.5mm connector. This has both and will not work with my keyboard. Also it is not very comfortable. Took it back because it was not what I was looking for.

    My Son loves these headphones! He uses them on the computer and he uses them on his Ipod connected to Skype. He can communicate with his friends while gaming through the microphone, and he loves that!

    overall great headphones for the price. my computer sometimes fails to load the drivers properly. Again these headphones are awesome. However, the equalizer piece is a little bulky.

    The bass, treble, have no effect on the sound, the sound goes blank between conversations when watching a movie. Plugging the head set directly in to computer with out AMP in works good.

    This product was supposed to be the same as the wireless. It was certainly not. This product had a constant buzz when turned up. It works but it's quality didn't equal it's price

    These replaced my old failing headset for mostly gaming purposes. So far so good. I do like the controls on the cord and the ability to use them with my phone / portable MP3.
