    Great Sound and feedback...however...

    I bought this 3 months ago. Before I get into the negative stuff, I will say that the sound and the feedback from the mic is amazing and I loved it when I first got it. It was definitely my favorite headset that I ever bought for gaming since I could just turn the feedback volume down to only really barely hear myself and not hear any of my surroundings. It was great! But this is a two star review for a reason... First off, the fact that I have to charge it at night is a huge annoyance however I got use to it and it doesn't bother me as much as it use to but again...huge annoyance... The one thing I HATE that has been annoying me for the past two-three weeks is the fact that the left speaker sometimes just doesn't want to work and I have to mess with the volume on the side to get it to work. The mic feedback also is starting to go and I need to mess with that volume as well. I just don't think this was worth the money I paid. Even though the sound and mic quality are AMAZING, the speaker and feedback going out sometimes are just super annoying and not very helpful when I'm playing a game that relies on sound. Also, there is a slight static noise but I was aware of that issue with Turtle Beaches since I have had one before with that same issue. It doesn't bother me as much as others, but that is definitely a negative as well.

    EXCELLENT BASS AND VOLUME

    Don't waste your money if your not trying to get surround sound. My primary goal was "loud" with "bass". I wanted these for my XBOX ONE X. Mission accomplished. I highly recommend these from Best Buy. Usually in stock for about $70 or less, whatever. OMG, the best sounding loud and full of bass headset I've tried, and I have tried quite a few. No complaints. Easy hookup, nothing too confusing, I could go on. Plug and Play your heart out. Again, no surround value, just loud with Bass. Plus, nice leather like ear pads, you can't beat those for comfort. The mesh ones get uncomfortable and hard to clean for multiple wearers. And, these are all black, not glossy either. Plus, another bonus is the carbon fiber headband and ear piece trim. Sweet. Mike is short and swings out of your way unlike those bendable mic's. Get one today if you fit this description, very durable and fits well with those with average sized heads at least. I couldn't be happier, lots of bang for your buck too. These are my thoughts, Battlefield V player for hours and hours of enjoyment and comfort.

    Great headset for great price

    I’ve had turtle beach headsets on more than 3 different consoles, nothing beats the comfort and quality sound that turtle beach offers. Most comparable to the astro A10’s which I owned for one day and returned because they were too uncomfortable. Only cons I have to this headset is the material around the ears, would be better if it was the mesh type material but pleather is what you pay for on a $60 headset I suppose. And also the length and inability to detach the headphone jack from both ends. This is the one thing Astro A10’s are better in. More breathable material and an interchangeable cable. Once the turtle beach one gets a short, it’s over!

    Squeaky joints and White Noise

    I bought this headset to use with my Xbox One and Nintendo Switch while playing FPS and RPG games in which hearing people walk around you is important. For this purpose the headset is great, the sound is crisp, clear, and has good bass. However, the left ear piece makes a creaking noise like a door hinge without lubrication if I move my jaw line at all. There is also white noise in the background during periods where the game does not have louder audio. This is about what I expected for a headset at this price, much better than the xbox traditional set.

    White noise and mic quality

    I recently purchased this product for my Xbox one. Immediately when I first put it on I realized that it was extremely uncomfortable and bulky . Then I plugged it in to my controller and then i heard a irritating white noise that wouldn’t go away no matter what I tried. After that I got in to a party with friends and they told me my mic quality was muffled and and bad, they even recorded and showed me. And after a couple games of fortnite a realized the product wasn’t for me and I will be returning it tomorrow

    Good for console gaming, not for music

    Bought this because I was looking for a good headset that would work with PS4 & PC. I've been told Turtle Beach was a great brand to go with, but I found with these, in order to work with PC, a splitter needs to be purchased in addition. Sound quality is fair, but if your looking for headphones to listen to music at high quality, this is not it. Also, it says "wired", but there is a battery pack in it that needs to be charged. This headset should have just been made completely wireless. Otherwise, pretty decent with console gaming & chat.

    This headset was for my son for Xmas for his XBOX One, he and I both are very disappointed. The audio is really quiet, even after fully setting up the headphone settings within the XBOX menus. I would not recommend this product to anyone at any level of gaming even if it were a quarter of the price. Might I also add that I am a Turtle Beach fan I have a 10 year old headset for my computer I refuse to replace, true 5.1 surround in each speaker, yes a center, left/right, rear and sub in each speaker (4 total speakers per ear).

    Comfortable, but Frustrating

    If you have no experience with amplified headsets (like I was), know that this one requires its own charge even though it isn’t wireless so be prepared to charge it up every few uses, or more if you forget to turn them off after taking them off like I do, which means I have to sit about a foot away from my monitor with the headset plugged in to be able to use them. Also, the top isn’t completely rounded like the picture suggests, which can look a little weird when they are on your head if you’re someone that cares about that.

    Great sound quality beats some cheap 25 dollars I previously had from Amazon. The reason it didn’t get a 5 star rating was because of the material quality, wasn’t expecting much but could’ve been better. You can hear a little echo of your voice, not that bad but you can hear it. Cord also feels really thin like it can rip easily, first turtle beaches so I don’t know if it will be durable. Let’s hope but overall great sound I like how the headphones have a swivel action going on. Pretty comfortable light weight.

    No ear strain after many hours of usage. It is slightly tight however, but no complaints as this is person to person thing. Sound is great and the bass is very clean. I never have it up past half-way and its very loud. Definitely for the crowd that prefers rich bass. Hearing others through chat is crisp as well as hearing yourself. I use it with a PS4 and have had 0 issues with it. The charge lasts a very long time and is recharged rather quickly.

    Sounds are good but Quality is Bad.

    Sounds are good. The louder the better. But the quality of this product is not what i expected. I just pulled the 3.5m jack to my controller and bam! Its already broken.. the 3.5m jack remain inside my controller. So be really careful when pulling it out. Good thing bestbuy replace it. Otherwise i have completely don't know what to do with it since i just purchase it for a couple of days and its already broken even on gentle use.

    The Turtle Beach - Recon 200 WIRED headphones are great. The noise cancelling and comfort is really good. The only thing that made it a 4 instead of 5 is that it needs to be charged. I didn't expect to need to charge wired headphones. It isn't a problem until the battery runs out (because my kids forgot to recharge), the headphones no longer work. Other than that, these are a great buyl

    If you’re serious but like, not so serious about gaming, it’s perfect. For maybe even watching movies, it’s perfect. The sound quality is good. The adjustable knobs on the side are very helpful. The only issue I’ll have, is when I take my headset off and place it down but the mic is still down, it’ll go into the ear cuff and make a screech sound. But other than that, it’s great.

    Sound Great/Uncomfortable to Wear

    Overall it's a great headset. Sound great and the volume control is very convenient. Battery lasts a few hours before needing to be charged which is good. Downside is that the headset gets really unconfortable to Wear after an hour or 2. Also the Mic gets catches a lot of sound in your house. But besides those 2 things it's a great buy.

    Bought these for my son for Christmas. They appeared to be awesome headphones, but he hasn’t been able to game with them since he got them. He can hear other players, but the mic will not work. I did all troubleshooting properly and it still won’t work. I sent the company and email for support and they were not helpful. A week later, I am now having to return them.

    Almost forgot how good Turtle beach was. I guess I thought back when I had my Xbox they couldn’t make something great for PlayStation, I had no reason to believe that. When this headset quits functioning, I’m buying the same one again. Great quality, great sound, great mic. The only issue I have is muting could be a button. But instead it’s moving the mic arm up.

    If you have kids that tend to go through headsets like they're going out of still (because they seem to break them all the time), THIS is a good, reasonably priced alternative! Sound good and reasonable feature set. (For added assurance, get the Geek Squad coverage just in case! It's WELL worth the minimal investment for NO hassle returns/exchanges with BB.)

    This Turtle Beach headset looks and feels great but the sound is lacking, at max volume most games are hard to hear. I have all the settings in the Xbox and on the headset turned to max. I have always been a Turtle Beach fan, my headset for my computer is a 12 year old true surround Turtle Beach headset that I would not trade for anything currently on the market.

    Battery Life and Noise Cancellation

    Got these headphones for my brother and tested them a few times myself. They are great with blocking out background noise that can be a distraction definitely when playing online games. They could do better in the battery department. Although you can be alerted when they are low seems the battery dies quicker than some of the alternatives.

    This was probably the fourth or fifth replacement for my son for his ps4 because he is very rough with them when he gets upset while playing the game (woosah)... They have been great so far with no complaints or problems... I even purchased a pair for myself for my xbox one and they work great...
