    Not for adults

    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.

    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!!!

    I definitely recommend this for gamers looking to replace their Xbox headset without breaking the bank. For kids this is more than enough for a gaming headset. For an adult, this should satisfy the average serious gamer. Now your TV will likely still give you a better range of sound than anything but top of the line headsets, but for the price, I think the sound on these headsets is quite good. Also you can turn off your TV volume and game or watch TV with these quite well.

    Look elsewhere

    Not worthy of $40. I purchased this headset a week ago to replace my X12s that have stopped picking up audio. My biggest gripe is the lack of the Mic Monitoring feature found on other Turtle Beach products. Other issues include a terrible removable microphone that never goes in properly and a very uncomfortable headband that is painful to wear after even a short period of time. I plan on returning this pair to the nearest Best Buy store. Look elsewhere for a budget gaming headset, because this product is far from the best.

    After receiving an Xbox One, my son needed a pair of headphones that would allow him to converse with other players on the game’s internet website. We have purchased Turtle Beach headphones in the past and have never been disappointed. So, we purchased this pair, Turtle Beach Ear Force. The headset is very clear and has a removable microphone. Easy to use and comfortable to wear. No complaints! Once again, we are very happy with the quality and the great price from Best Buy.

    I needed a new headset for my computer and decided to get another Turtle Beach Headset since I was always satisfied with them. Only drawback for this pair is the cord is too short, and it didn't come with the Y-Splitter to plug in back of the computer. I like the fact it has one plug to tplg into the computer, but it's too short and you can not buy any extensions to make the cord longer

    I bought these to replace some awesome cheap turtle beaches that I bought about 4 years ago (which still work great, but don't work with my new setup unfortunately). They are alright for the price, fairly comfortable, but the sound just wasn't good enough for my needs. I play a lot of FPS and I couldn't even hear where shots and explosions were coming from so I had to return them. They'd probably work fine for some but I just couldn't recommend them for players of Call of Duty, Battlefield, etc.

    The price point is great but the headset doesn't last. We've bought 3 pairs and each pair stops working around the 1 year mark. Either the listening or the microphone capability stops working. It's still a Good headset to get as a gift because the kids always use them as a backup when friends come over. If you are using it as your primary gaming headset then know that you'll need to replace it in a year.

    My son has just gotten into playing Xbox online so he was excited to get some headphones with his own money he's saved up (he's 9)... come to find out his controller doesn't even have a port for headphones so I had to buy him an adapter. Well, these headphones are hit or miss. Sometimes they work, sometimes they don't! I wouldn't really care if they were headphones I bought.. just hate to see his disappointment. But as the saying goes, you get what you pay for! Christmas he will be getting a better pair!

    I use both version, single ear and mic with this over ears and mike. Both have their pros and cons. Now some Pro's: Great sound, comfortable, great price. removable mic, can be used to hear game while having your TV or AV equipment muted. Con's: My ears get sweaty from time to time but not often. harder to hear others in the room, since you cover both ears. I would recommend these, but not if you want to talk to people in the room while you play. My son and I both have a pair and he loves his also.

    Great for Work Conference Calling

    I'm not necessarily using it for it's intended purpose of a gaming headset. I'm using for conference calling for voice over IP and connecting it to a phone jack on a cordless phone via an adapter. It works great and is very clear. My only concern is the that mute/unmute switch is very sensitive. I have the same function on the phone and don't use the built in one on the headset. I have a piece of tape over it so I don't accidently bump it. I got such a great deal on them that I bought 2 keeping 1 as a spare.

    Excellent Headset for Casual Gamer

    I picked this headset up after my Xbox Official one died in 3 months. So far the sound has been excellent, my friends can hear me in chat, and probably an awesome feature is the ability to remove the talk piece. This is handy because I use my headset for my sound, and it gets annoying when I'm watching something on Netflix and I have the talk piece in my face. I can't recommend enough. Totally worth the purchase. Games I play for reference: -Warframe -Halo 5 -Battlefield 4 or Hardline -Destiny

    Great Headphones at a really good price

    I bought these to replace a pair of Polk Headphones that I used previously with my xBox one. The Polk headphones were much more expensive however not better. I really like the fact that these can be worn for a long period of time and not have any “ear fatigue” or physical discomfort. Pros: Cost | Sound Quality | Ease of Use | Removable Mic Cons: It doesn’t come with the controller puck so you will need a new controller with the headphone jack in it or buy a puck (this is what drops it to a 4 star for me).

    My son was using cell phone ear buds after buying his new Xbox on black friday at best buy. He complained other gaming friends couldn't hear him well. His friends had a variety of sets and he wrote them down and I did my research. He is very satisfied and can't believe the excellent clarity of the head set. I have used them too and they are unbelievable. They are also built well and very durable which is great when used by any teenage gamer. Great buy!

    Good sound, bad mic

    The sounds quality is very good and works well with the games I play compared to some other headsets I have used, however I have had issues with the mic going in and out of working, sometimes not working at all. Picks up way too much background noise IF it's working properly. Has a little switch for muting and I muting the mic, and after about a month of use, it no longer mutes when I switch it to muted. If I had the box I would return and pay more for higher quality.

    Best headset for gaming!

    This headset is perfect for gaming, I got to hear everything in the game really clear and loud as I want it to be. The volume control pad took a while for me to learn how to adjust the gaming, chat and both volumes but once I got it i was able to control it easily. The comfort level is alright but play too long and my head and neck start to ache. I also used it for other devices like my phone and laptop and the sound is much better than my skullcandy headphones and my phone's Samsung earplugs.

    I was looking for a headset tat I could use the few times I play late at night and don't want to disturb the family. This was priced right for what I needed. I particularly liked that the microphone is detachable because I don't play online very often The over the ear headphones fit well and the sound quality is pretty good for gaming. If you are looking for an affortable headset with a detachable mic then this is a very good choice.

    Better Than the Standard Headset

    The basic one-ear headset that came with my Xbox was busted and I didn't want to spend a ton on a high-end one, so I grabbed this. I can hear things around me much better in-game and it is comfortable enough for me. Not a fan of the wires though as it is constantly twisted up, no matter what I do. Again, it is good enough for what I need.

    Sounds Great, Construction Iffy

    Our Initial impression was that these were cheap plastic and would break quickly. We have been pleasantly surprised, however, that they are still holding up to near daily usage since Christmas. The sound quality is very good and the gaming mic makes for a decent online gaming experience. There are definitely higher quality headsets, but you will pay a significant premium for them. If you are on a budget and want good sound quality, these might be the headset for you.
