    White noise and mic quality

    Posted

    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

    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.

    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. 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.

    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.)

    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.

    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.

    I bought this headset for my little brother after using Turtle Beach in the past and it was very easy for him to set up and use with the Switch. Which Switch comparable headsets are hard to find. My only complaint is the mic is slightly on the lower end but by all means is not quiet.

    The sounds this headphone produce is fantastic and the microphone is fantastic too. Talking to my friends with this microphone is beautiful no shouting into it. The sound quality is very good for the price of these headphone.

    I bought this headset to use with my Xbox 1, and I’m glad I did! This headset has a short aux cord that plugs right into my controller for easy set up. Also a great feature is it is rechargeable, does not need a power source. Overall great product!

    I have an old pair of XO,s that this pair is comparable to but these have to be charged so I'm returning them. I don't understand how these need to be charged because they are plugged into the xbox controller. The search continues for the next headphones.

    So i play online with my buddy. I can barely hear out of them when he talks. He even has his volume up all the way. I would rather have bought SkullCandy Hesh 2/3 or Crusher Headphones for better resutl. But if i play alone i can hear just fine.

    Heads up that though this is a wired headset it does require a charge to function due to the built in amplifier outside of that it sounds good and is comfortable but if you prefer a wired headset like I do don't go for this one.

    I was tired of hearing my kids battling on Fortnite so I bought them these headphones for Christmas. By the end of each day the kids are yelling and I can hear all of the talk because their headphones have ran out of battery.
