    Very good headset

    I wanted a headset that was compatible with pretty much everything (XB1X, PS4Pro, Switch), was comfortable for long periods, had good audio quality and some noise cancellation. AND did not cost a fortune. This headset fits the bill nicely. Pick up more than one and you can carry this in your backpack while mobile gaming- no need to take it out for home gaming. Lose it...not a big deal as it is fairly inexpensive. A Win. Also not a bad deal to get the replacement plan for a few bucks more.

    This is simply a headset with a good MIC. Nothing crazy or over the top. If you want good sound with the ability to talk with other gamers, this is the easy purchase. Comfortable, light and durable. Used 1 for my Xbox and upgraded later on. I liked them so much I bought a set for my sister who is into PC gaming and wanted a headset. She loves it and uses every time we play games. She sounds crystal clear and I know it's because of the headset I bought her.

    These headphones are pretty good overall. The sound quality is great and the ear piece is quite comfortable for extended periods of gaming. My only complaint would be the connection point for the cords is a little flimsy so they have a tendency to loose sound or connections if not careful, The microphone has the same issue being a little flimsy. I wouldn't suggest these for younger children who aren't careful in the handling of them.

    Really nice headset! The makers - turtle beach- great products! Full surround sound and no outside disturbances - I bought the insurance and I'm glad -less than a year sometime happened to the wire and I could only hear audio out of the left side. I took them back no box, no receipt, told customer service the problem, within minutes of looking up my info they brought. me a new one and only had to reup $5.00 on my insurance for this New one. Well worth it -head sets are notorious for breaking. I have a small head and this headset fits me perfect! So comfortable

    The headsets are perfect for our needs. When purchasing, we considered sound, look, comfort, portability, and price. A driving force was price. These were purchased within our budget and, quite frankly, they deliver quality of higher priced headsets. Turtle Beach is always a solid decision. The only downfall would be that they are wired, which can only be circumvented by an increase in price to another group of headsets. Great headsets. Great fun!

    A decent pair of headphones

    The headphone ears are rather hard and uncomfortable to use. Since it's listed as gaming headphones, i thought the comfort level would be higher as it's geared towards gamers who sit at home and don't have to care how the headphones look. Also if you plan on using these headphones while watching movies on your bed, find a different pair. The hard ears make it very hard to use with your head leaned against something like a pillow. The sound quality and microphone however were good as they should be for the price. Just wished it wasn't so uncomfortable to use.

    Good lower end headset

    Bought two of these for my kids. They seem to be well constructed and the kids love them. Much better gaming experience for them now so they have told me. Lol I would say one of the better lower end headsets you can buy for your money. But word of caution, make sure you have the newer style XBOX 1 controllers because they are only the 3.5 mm jack. Unless of course you have the XBOX1 adaptor that allows you to use these on the older controllers.

    I bought these to replace an expensive Xbox 360 headset that broke. I didn't want to buy another expensive headset for my Xbox One, and decided to give these relatively cheap Turtle Beach ones a try. They are great and the sound quality is excellent in my opinion. The only quibble I have with them at all, is that I can't hear my own voice over the earphones - but that is almost definitely tied to the fact that these aren't separately powered. But, to be honest, the convenience of not needing to deal with trailing another cord when I'm playing outweighs anything else!

    Good head set that doesn't cost a lot. It is comfortable and does not pinch. Some head sets can be tight but this one is comfortable. Mic picks up my voice well and the speakers are decent. I game occasionally so don't need something that I will wear 12-14 hours but these headphones have been comfortable for 4-6 hours (that's about how long I play at any given time. They work well with my Xbox or laptop. If you are looking for a set of gaming headphones but don't want to break the bank I would give these a try.

    Broke in 4 months

    I bought these just under 4 months ago to replace the normal xbox headset, they were working good and then out of no where they stopped playing half of the sound and my friends could hear me but I couldn't hear them. These were never dropped, abused, yanked on or twisted, they just stopped working. For a replacement or to be fixed I have to pay for shipping, and at that price its almost the same as a new set. Also having wire on both sides of the headset makes keeping extra care of them so something like doesn't happen...even though it did.

    My boyfriend is a big gamer, you name it, he has it. Luckily for me, these headphone are great and super inexspesive. He said that these headphones were better than his 100$ pair. For those of you interested, it’s worth the money. Make sure you read the box for comparability! It’s not for every gaming system, but Best Buy has a easy return policy. So don’t stress if these aren’t the right ones! I guarantee they will be worth it!

    After a good 3 year run with my old headset, the mic died out on me. I was previously a Turtle Beach User but didn't want to spend over a Hundred Dollars on a headset. I found the Recon 50 and plugged it in, the audio was amazing and I was hesitant about the plug in Mic,..but it made my voice even more clear in my Teamspeak. I highly Recommend this Headset! A+++

    As with previous Turtle Beach, the sound quality is really good. But they are not very loud when plugged in to Xbox One remote. Plugged into an audio device are much louder and still sound great. In-game sound is just quieter at max volume for adequate chat level to be heard. Noise cancelling design good enough for lower sound to still be quite usable in most settings. Average family room fine, loud party not so much.

    Works good but fails easily - treat them with care

    I have a 9 year old child and they use this headset as well as I do. The only reason I bring this up is because my 9 year old if much harder on things than I typically am. He adjusted the mic a lot and would drop the headphones down etc. After about 60 days the mic wouldn't work unless it was held in place or twisted to just the right angle. Basically, if you buy this set just take it easy on it and beware of how you lay them down otherwise you're bound to hit this same failure as me. They're inexpensive but they work great if you are super careful.

    These headphones work great with my Xbox one x. They are very comfortable and sound very good, which surprised me considering the cost. I realize they aren’t the greatest either, but for the price they have been great! I have several other high end headsets both for music, and pc gaming but unfortunately needed another headset that would work with the Xbox and these fit the bill very well and didn’t break the bank. Great buy!

    Padded headphones with a removable microphone

    I got tired of using earbuds and lightweight headphones when streaming movies and many other things through one of my desktop computers. These have worked out very well doing what I do with them. The line cord for them was only 3' long, though, and that did not fit the bill. I ordered out another four (4) conducto extension cable, that was also 3' long, and added it to the original connection, thereby giving myself an ample 6' of cord to make it a lot easier to move around in the area of these computers. The whole thing worked out very well.

    I purchased this headset for my 10yr old son and he loves them. The cups are small and the noise level is low even when turned up to max level. These are perfect for a child but not for an adult. These are cheap so no big deal if they get broken. These are not for you if you want a great quality headset. I only recommend these to parents if your child wants a headset. They are great your kid if this is his first jump into an online, game chat experience.

    I was looking at phone headsets because I started working from home and have several skype meetings a day. A BB employee listened to what I wanted and lead me to the gaming section. These are perfect. Zero complaints. Perfect cord length to my laptop. Excellent over ear coverage and sound for voice. I have had several compliments on the mic. Easy mute button on the cord. I use the skype mute control, but this mute is still easy to find and use. The cord is probably a bit short if you need longer than head to laptop.

    I got this headset for my XB1. The sound is great and the mic works fantastic. It is only getting 3 stars because, when I have my controller plugged in, my mic has a continuous buzzing that my party chat hears until I unplug my controller. Meaning that if my controller dies, I have to keep my mic off unless I am talking in order to keep playing while charging my controller. The ear muffs rotate and make the headset sit much more comfortable than other headsets I have used.

    After looking at all the $60 -$100+ headset and almost giving in to purchasing a headset for both the Xbox One and PS4 since all of them were system specific I ended up pulling this from the bottom shelf and its Universal!!! Even the clerk was suprises they had this after about 20 min of looking and doing research for me. I did have to buy an adaptor for the Xbox one controller but even still the headset with the adapter was less then your standard system specific headset. Has great sound, feels comfortable, and its Universal!!!
