    This is my first actual gaming headset. I bought it on sale. I use it for the ps4. I normally use the ear piece that came with the ps4 or I use my phone earbuds. The audio sounds great when playing online & it has actually helped me get a little better at COD WW2. I can hear the footsteps better & know which direction they are coming from. When I have the audio & chat both coming through the headset, it can be a little hard to hear my friend talk sometimes b/c of audio of game is mixed in. But if I change the settings on the ps4 for chat only, I can't hear the game audio from the TV b/c of the headset. That is a good thing b/c the headset blocks out the noise pretty good. They are very comfortable and since they block out noise pretty good, it means I won't have to hear my gf talk and ask questions when I play ps4. lol

    With a family member who's always wanted a Turtle Beach headset (or one by their competitors) for FPS games. this Black Friday price cut was thought to be a good X-mas present, until reading and watching reviews (which I should've done BEFORE purchasing it) made it apparent that this item is not what we wanted, so we returned it unopened. Want to hear the footsteps of those enemies sneaking up to stab or shoot you in the back in Call of Duty? Well, apparently you'll need a $100+ headset for that type of sound setting in the Turtle Beach line or better yet a $200+ gaming headset which is out of our price range. According to reviewers, the mic quality would be an upgrade from either the one bundled w/ PS4 consoles or any generic headset w/ built-in mic (like Skull Candy), but to us that wasn't worth the price tag when so few people use mics on games these days anyways.

    I had purchased this headset for my son, and it worked great for almost a year, before he started experiencing issues then the cord ended up cracking from what looks to be normal use. The replacement warranty really came in handy, so I got the exact same headset, after one day of use the sound became an issue as only specific sounds would be heard though the headset. After taking a look and trying various resets on the PS4Pro we determined it was the headset. I did notice that the feel of the Recon 150 just seemed lack in quality. Ended up being full return and choosing a Astro headset over the Turtle Beach - RECON 150.

    I got them on blk Friday for $40 and totally worth every penny. I use to have a wireless (ps4 gold headset) and it was huge update. I was just tired of charging two devices I didn’t mind the headset being wired. The sound and comfort is way better. The only Negative I had it did kill my controllers battery faster. No big deal yet but it might be to some. All I do now is charge it every time I’m done having a gaming session before I didn’t. I would charge it every other day. I haven’t tested out what’s the max time I’ve gotten on a PS4 battery charge but so far I’ve gotten like 5-6hr min with still a little bit of battery left

    Mic goes out quickly

    I barely got this headset 2 and a half months ago. I was so excited because it was my first good pair. I work a lot, so I don’t play as much as I would like to. It was a really amazing headset at first too. Anyways, the microphone completely went out on me. I can still hear everything and everyone perfectly, but no one can hear me. I’ve messed with every setting, tried different controllers and nothing will make it work again. I’m very disappointed that very little use and it went out. I feel like I wasted $60.

    My wife got tired of me playing Call of Duty over our surround sound system. She couldn't take all the shooting and explosions late at night. The saying goes happy wife, happy life, so I wound up getting headphones. I noticed these on sale for black Friday, and figured I'd make the purchase. My favorite feature so far has been the detachable microphone. It's easy quick to connect, which allows me to correct those players calling you a "camper". As if.

    I can hear people very clearly and they say they can hear me very clearly too so that's great. I like how the mic can be removed so I can use them casually for music. My only complaints are that I wish the ear pads were more comfy, they get irritating after a while. Also, at first I could only hear people in one ear and I couldn't fix it, however a day later they worked just fine and it hasn't happened since. Finally, I don't like the connection for the headphones. Its that inconvenient "L" shape and it when connected the PS4 controller it feels weird pressing my fingers against it.

    The sound on these is great, and the mic seems to not have echo or feedback. At least no one I have ever been on a party with has said anything.The headset is very comfortable, and I have worn it for hours and hours at a time. The only thing that bothers me is the jack that goes into the wireless XBOX controller. It is a 90 degree angle one, and the one I had before was straight. I thought the straight one stayed out of the way better, but that is nit picking.

    I purchased the earphones and mike for my son to use with gaming programs. The microphone worked well but we have not been able to make the earphones work yet. It may be a setting we have not set correctly but I expected to go home plug in the headphones and play. I will keep trying to figure out what is wrong but the headphones are not so user friendly and neither are the instructiond.

    You get what you pay for, decent cheap headset that is a big upgrade to the little earbud mic that playstation gives you. Sound quality is okay for the price point and no complaints about mic quality. It's not very comfortable if you play on wearing these for a few hours, i find myself having to take them off every couple of hours since the pads are hard and doesnt have much give.

    I bought these headsets thinking that it work work with my xbox one x controller, it does and it doesn't. Let me explain the headsets work perfectly for game audio, but for chatting and other mic related issues it doesn't. It should state that it doesn't on Best Buy's website. Very disappointed cause I drove all the way out there to purchase these.

    Bought this headset while it was on sale for $39.99 which is the price of the Turtle Beach headset that I have been buying and replacing once a year when it stops functioning properly. I figured I might as well buy the next model up while it's the same price! Great headset, comfortable, sturdy, the sound quality is crisp and clear. I hope that these last longer than the Recon 50s I've been buying!

    Bought this for my son for Christmas for use with PS4. Good headset, good sound quality and seems to be up to the task. Appears to be built robustly enough to stand up to a teen's less-than-delicate handling characteristics. We'll see. I've been very happy with my own TB PX22 headset and it's lasted quite a while so hopefully this will live up to TB's reputation as well.

    These headphones are pretty solid. I didn't know they plugged into the controller so that was different and cool. I'm use to getting TB headsets that have a bit more bass in the sound so that's something I'm missing with these. Other than that the sound quality is great, they feel comfortable, and the removable mic is awesome so it's never in the way.

    Bought this for my Xbox one. Liked the blue color. When I went to use, it wasn't natively compatible with Xbox controller. I had to purchase a separate Xbox controller adapter just to use the headset. May not have bought it if I had known that.

    I purchased these for my son since his other gaming headset gave out. He loves them. The block out noise around you when he has them on he can’t hear me calling him. I guess that’s a good thing for him when it comes to gaming. As for us parents lol not when we are calling our children and the don’t respond. All in all a good product and satisfied.

    Got these when they were on sale to play Fortnite on my PS4. The cable connects to the controller and is definitely long enough. It has enough volume and the mute button comes in handy. If you have a big head, these might not fit you though, as they do not have much adjustment room

    I bought this item on a whim because I needed a headset that connected via 3.5mm port to use my Elgato game capture device with the PS4. The headset works great. It took me awhile to figure out that the microphone has a little knob that should be aligned when you push it into the hole. At first, I just thought the fitting was bad.
