    Bang for your Buck

    Okay, so I had to get a new headset for my xbox one since my bose qc35 wire broke. I didn't want to spend much as my headphones were already $350. I went and got these for around $40. Quality is okay, but the results are exactly what i wanted. Sound is clear, controls and mic are great. Comfort wise it's also pretty good. I've had them for about 2 months without any issue. The cord is sturdy and overall I am happy. I'd recommend these for those who are price sensitive and want something reliable attached with a low price compared to other similar products. I do a lot of research before buying products and this one was the most reasonable for me.

    Total waste of 40 bucks. I've had turtle beach headsets before and loved them. There's no volume to these at all. I bought them because I was tired of replacing the cheesy MS headsets and I wanted over the ear, without the little wedge that plugs into the controller. When I tried them out, I could just barely hear the game audio and voice chat was so faint it couldn't be made out. Tried using the inline volume control, and even tried updating the controller. The boom mic seems to be the only thing that does work as my friends could hear me even if I couldn't hear them.

    Surprisingly good sound

    I hate to give these headphones only 4 stars, and it's really no fault of their own. I blame Best Buy this time. Most PCs (in my experience) have separate green & pink headphone and mic connections. This particular set of cans has a combined connector - requiring you to buy a splitter cable. I had a Turtle Beach DSS module laying around from an older set of Turtle Beach's that worked, otherwise I'd have to buy another cable. Anyways, as I listen to some Motown as I write this, these headphones produce a surprising amount of bass and I am quite pleased with them so far. Time will tell as to longevity, as my previous pair only lasted around 2 years. I'll have to test the mic out later...

    Good mic, decent sound. Good for the price

    For the price, these are actually a pretty decent set of headphones. The mic is really good, however the sound from the headphones themselves are passable—a set of Apple EarPods that are $10 cheaper have a lot better sound. The only reason I bought these were because the mic on my Apple EarPods wouldn't work with an Xbox One controller. The top bar can get a little uncomfortable as it doesn't have a whole lot of space nor padding (so people with larger heads like me might have a little discomfort). The noise isolation from the over the ear works pretty good too. Not a great set of headphones, but when you compare the prices to other gaming headsets, its not that bad.

    Cheap headset

    I purchased these turtle beaches after listening to the displays that where available at the store. They seemed to be decent when listening and i decided to bring them home. They ended up lasting me about 2-3 weeks then the mic would not pick up any sound at all. I ended up exchanging these for wireless AG9's and the sound quality is quite noticeable between the two, if you want really basic headset you can try these but buy the protection or just hope they break within the return period. Overall thoughts sad that turtle beaches would break as quick as they did and being that these are probably the lowest tier headset they sell the sound quality speaks for itself...

    My first gaming headphones

    This is my first gaming headphones that i have ever purchased. Got them so I could play APEX Legends. and let me tell you.... They make a world of difference. I have an xbox one and a quick plug and play is all it takes. I know that there are much more expensive headphones with deeper sound quality and all that, but I'm not a pro, just a casual gamer. I was even able to price match it with amazon turtle beach product. Worth the price range if you want to hear your teammates and footsteps, fire, etc.

    This is a pretty good set of headphones. The fact that they are wired means you will never have to worry about running out of a charge when using them (however, it may drain the battery of your controller faster!). The only gripe I have is that when connecting this to my XBox controller, sometimes the sound doesn't come through. I end up having to disconnect the audio plug and reconnecting it a couple of times. Not a big issue, but still kind of a hassle when I just want to jump into a game quick. But anyhow, it is still a pretty good headset, and at the price I got it for (a fraction of the more expensive headsets), I feel pretty satisfied.

    Great headphones for Gamers.

    The headphones are very sensitive to different types of sounds. Specifically the music, sfx, and voices can all be clearly heard and are distinguishable. The removable mic is convinient as I don't find myself using it often. The mic does work extremely well and does not transmit background noise according to my partners online. The headphones are comfortable to wear and are durable enough to take on the go. Also the adjustable volume controls on the headphone cord make listening to music much more enjoyable. All around this was an excellent find, (especially since it was on sale), and my only regret is that I didn't buy it sooner.

    good headset for PS4

    I am currently using this headset on the PlayStation 4. The 3.5 mm jack plugs right into the controller, and I get great sound from my games. My friends say that my voice comes through loud and clear. They are comfortable to wear for extended gaming sessions, and the in-line muting and volume is nice for on the fly adjustments. My only complaint is that the microphone boom is quite rigid, and doesn't really allow for much movement. But it is detachable if you want to use the headset for audio only. The plastic does feel a tad on the cheap side, but for $40 I'm not expecting top of the line build materials.

    Good entry level stereo headset for Xbox

    So far so good. With as many different headsets as have broken on us so far, we are hoping these will last a while. In our initial use, the sound quality is decent and the mic picks up conversation well. For their cost, I would say you are getting what you pay for. We have had better headsets, that cost more money, but they didn't last any longer than anything else. For anyone looking for a decent set of stereo headphones with a mic, and who wants to spend as little money as possible, you may want to check out this particular pair before looking at anything else.

    Inexpensive alternative

    I bought these headphones, so I could have an extra set. My kids like to watch Netflix on my One and they tend to leave my Xbox headphones laying around. I am comparing these the Xbox headphones. The TBs sound just a bit better and I can hear more sounds over the Xones. The comfort is much better and they allow for more air movement so your ears do not sweat. I paid $40 and I feel that was a great price for the quality of the product. If you are looking for a inexpensive alternative, look no further! You will need to purchase the headphone jack adapter for the Xbox one controller to use the TBs.

    Bought this for my Son’s 11th Birthday. He’s impressed by the clear output, no static. His friends can hear him perfectly. Although, just like any other headset, you can hear everything else in the room but doesn’t drown you out. The mic is detachable, which may not be a good thing if you loose items a lot. He likes to take it off when he doesn’t want to talk to anyone and has learned to place the mic somewhere he doesn’t forget. We looked at various headsets with mics, and this one is the winner, he loves it!

    I didn’t have many expectations when I bought these headphones. I had dropped quite a bit of $ for my PC headphone/mic set, but I needed a quick set to play a game with my friends on the PS and I didn’t have time to research. For the cost, this product works fantastic. After about 4 hours I could feel the pinch, but they are comfy. The sound is good, the mic works good (according to my friends). Again, for the cost, this is a solid buy. Never heard of this company, but I’m a full supporter now. Quality for less $, yes please!

    It works; son uses it and at 14 years old, he's pretty rough on his stuff. Last Turtle Beach headset was purchased from another retailer as a free add on bundle but don't think it lasted more than 3 weeks. So far, this has seen steady use for a month (knock wood). Sound quality is better than the previous and the mic pics up everything. Only complaint about these cans is we can hear the other gamers which might not be such a bad thing. Compared to my own Plantronics 7.1 that I use on my PC, the Turtle Beach don't hold a candle to them. But for a kid that really doesn't have any higher standards, these are just fine.

    I got this headset because my old PS4 headset broke and I was looking for something that was inexpensive and simple. This headset is the same as the PS4 version except for the color. It also comes with an extra cord to connect to computers, but is the same price as the PS4 version. Just plug it into your PS4 controller and you can communicate with friends battery free. The sound quality is very good and I'm told that the voice quality is also good. They are very comfortable and I have worn them for multiple hours with no discomfort. The headset seems to be well built and I expect them to last for a long time.

    I got these to replace my old headset because I read reviews saying it had a good mic and was comfortable. Despite having a wire splitter for the mic, from the same brand, I couldn't get the mic to work whatsoever. If I plugged it into only the mic output it was noisy and had a lot of static I couldn't reduce even when I changed the volume settings. If strictly used for hearing they'd be fine enough, though I find they're a bit uncomfortable on the top of my head. Disappointed overall, but not the worst I guess.

    Good Headset for the Money

    The Turtle Beach EAR FORCE Recon 50X is a great headset for the money. We all know the headsets that come with our console are of sub-par quality and definitely need an upgrade....especially when playing any FPS like Battlefield 1 or Call of Duty. The Ear Force Recon 50X is great headset that isn't going to break the bank. It doesn't have DTS or any higher end features like the Stealth 800's, but the sound is good and the headset is comfortable on the head. Plus with the boom style mic communicating with friends or teammates is easy and voice is clear...

    These headphones are good. They're not amazing.... They do a great job with surround sound on games. They can be used on xbox or PC. My ONLY problem with them is the same problem with most wired headsets - the headphone prong can be broken off if you're not careful. We have 9 kids in the house - and I've gone through several of these....but not really because of the headphones, but because a child has left it plugged in and yanked it, stepped on it, tossed it, etc. Grrr, kids. :)

    Comfy, clear & easy to use. No bells & whistles, but good for simple online gaming use. I've had all different types of headsets ranging in price & these are a favorite. Be aware, they do not come with an adapter for Xbox, so you will need to purchase one separately, but they are cheap so that wasn't a huge deal. Works great as is with PS. I bought them for my bf, but I always steal them. They're actually more comfortable than my Stealth 600's.

    These are fantastic phones, crisp sound and many features for tones you will never need. Charging stand/dock is very convenient and battery life is long. So the downside is that the ear cup cushion is not padded enough to keep the harder cartilage portion of your ear from rubbing against the inner mesh of the earcup this is extremely uncomfortable after an hour. I have small ears too so you need tiny ears for long time comfort also the leather cup gets warm quickly and in general adds to discomfort. Truth betold i loved them and i returned them. went with the a50s from astro never looked back..
