    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

    If you are new to getting an Xbox One like we were this Christmas, you need to know that whether it is these gaming headphones or any others that use the 3.5 mm jack connection, you will NOT be able to use them on the Xbox unless you buy an expensive adapter for the jack or you buy an off-brand Xbox controller that actually has the 3.5 mm jack built in to it. These and the green version of these both have only the 3.5 mm jack and cannot be used on the wireless Xbox controller that comes with the console. The headphones themselves are very decent quality for sound and quite comfortable with all the cushioning. So they are worth it if you either have a controller for the Xbox that can take the jack or you can use these on the PS4 controllers without a problem, as they have this jack.

    Got these on sale for $20. That's about all I'd really want to spend on them. Sounds quality is good. Mic works well. Mute button and volume controls are easy to use and access. Padding around ears is pretty comfortable. I found two negatives with the headset though. When I'm in party chat, I only get that audio out of my left ear. I have to switch the settings to get all audio, party and game, in order to hear chat through both ears. Then it's hard to hear them with the game audio coming through as well. The other negative is the padding at the top of the headset isn't all that comfortable during longer sessions. About every half hour or so I have to readjust to try to make it more comfortable. Decent headphones though for the right price.

    returned unopened due to reviews

    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.

    Overall, the headset is outstanding. As a gamer, I look for the best headset and a low price, and this is it. It provides a very dynamic sound, which allows me to hear where my enemy is approaching from. My teammates can hear my call-outs very clearly and with ease. The downside of the headset is that it tends to get uncomfortable at the top due to it only being slightly padded, but when you're in the zone, you forget all about it. It covers my ears completely and drains out any background noise. It's controls are very simple: on/off switch for your voice, and a volume control to control the output to your ears.

    Best Backups or Primary for the $$

    I have Astros, and PS4 Gold Wireless (both are) but when I seen these on sale for $39 I couldn't pass up for a "wire backup" solution. These plug into my PS4 controller no muss, no fuss, plug and play. Everyone says my voice sound great (Better than my PS4 Gold which sound like you're in a tube) about the same as the Astros. The sound quality is not at par with the others, but it is surprisingly good. I used these as everydays for a while, over my PS4 Golds, until the Astros went on sale, and if those fail I will use these over the Golds I purchased my son a backup pair also I mean at that price, you can't beat it. Highly recommend these!

    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

    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.

    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.

    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 packaging is silly

    Bought them as a gift for a friend that has an Xbox One... when the box came in, it said PS4 all over it- yet the title online says that they are for Xbox one (which they are compatible with). Called Best Buy and the nice lady attending me was confused as well as to why the box would say PS4 on it when it clearly isn’t system specific. Apparently with this model, the blue and green packaging read either Xbox or PS4 on them which makes it very confusing for buyers.

    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.

    Great sound and easy to use. Two problems though. The plug in for the controller is at an angle so the cord gets in the way no matter how you have it sit. The other problem may be a PS4 thing: when the headset is plugged in then the sound only goes to headset. There is no sound from the TV. Which is ok unless someone else does want to listen/watch while you play. For the price it is at: I like it and enjoy it; minor issues aside.

    The headset is nice, if you send al the audio to the headset, it balances your friends in a party’s voice and the games noise really well. Never had a problem hearing my friends. This may just be me, but after a while of wearing the headset, I do have to take it off for it becoming a little uncomfortable. It doesn’t feel that way up front, but after a while, I find myself having to adjust it to get comfortable again.

    Turtle Beach always does a great job on their products, but I feel like these specifically are a home run! Great material for the ear covers, I love the cloth material compared to the leather because your head doesn't get as hot. The headset expands and pivots in multiple points so it is a super comfortable fit, and of course the sound quality is excellent. I would rate it 6 out of 5 if I could!

    Loved the sound quality, sometimes I think there's someone in my room and turns out to be some background conversation in a movie. Not sure if it has some kind of simulated surround but you can tell the direction the sound is coming from in movies/games. This is not one of the more expensive sets, yet, it has an extremely satisfying sound quality and a good bass too. Getting two more for my kids.

    I go through a lot of headsets because the cord fails right where it plugs in the controller. This headset finally fixes this issue by introducing a 90-degree connection where the cord connects to the controller. I bought this set as an early Black Friday deal so it was 50% off which made this headset an amazing value, but even at the normal price, I think you'd be getting your money's worth.
