    Lightweight headphones with excellent microphone

    I bought these for my son when his previous pair of headphones broke (those were a different brand). These headphones are very lightweight and comfortable, but what struck me most was the quality of the microphone. We play online games together and chat over Teamspeak. The clarity of the microphone is amazing compared to the previous headset he was using. After testing this one out, I'm planning to pick the same headset up for myself.

    I needed a headset with inline controls to mute while streaming. I hate to talk over my party chat so I tend to mute but also have a Fusion A controller that only has the 40MM jack, so the adapter doesn't work. This was perfect. They're comfortable, portable and just great for the money. The sound is the absolute greatest but it gets the job done. If you're looking for a cheap headset to game with, these will work great.

    I owned a pair of these for my Xbox One and decided to purchase a pair for my PS4. The sound is alright and there isn’t much functionality, but the headset is worth it for the price. I use them so that I can play games late at night without waking anyone up. If you’re looking for stellar sound, these aren’t for you. They simply get the job done.

    Sine the new Xbox One S doesn't come with a headset, I had to pick up one. I wasn't going for anything fancy because all I needed to do was hear and talk to my online friends. WOW, this thing has some really good sound. Nice high, mid audio. There is some good low, but not enough to blow your eardrums out. I previously purchased some expensive AudioTechnica wireless headphones for watching movies while not disturbing anyone around me. I now use this instead!

    I got these for my father. I figured he could use an upgrade. They are cheap, so I didn't have high expectations for them. The fit was comfortable for me, but not him. We added some foam in the top corners of his head to give his ears some relief. The sound is better than what he was using, but a bit tinny for my liking. Overall, it's likely what you expect.

    Picked these up after being highly disappointed on the single ear entry level price point set you find at all major retailers. Dual ear headset with great audio quality and excellent speaker with great range, makes these the best bang for your buck. Turtle Beach offers more options on they're higher end price points headsets, but you can't go wrong with these as a starter set. Best overall quality and value for the money you would spend on any other brand.

    I needed a chat headset. Since I'm deaf in one ear I figured I'd go with headphones so I could hear the game sounds as well. I'm a PS4 owner and have headphones for it but they won't work with the Xbox. I didn't want to spend a lot of money but I did want something comfortable. This really fit the bill. I can wear these for hours, the sound is good and my playing partner doesn't complain that he can't hear me on chat. So ya, if you are on a budget, pick these up!

    Had to replace the headset that came with my Xbox One and this was on sale at the time for $40. It was a great buy. Took a bit to realize that I had to lower the in game volume to boost the chat volume but once that was done it was perfect. These are noise canceling headphones at all so if that is what you are looking for then these are not for you. If you want just a decent pair of headphones that will allow you to chat over Live then these are great to own.

    Serviceable Budget Headphones

    They work, but these are probably some of the worst sounding headphones I have owned. Voices and mid level sounds are very difficult to pick-up. If you have a newer Xbox One controller, this set will plug into the 3.5mm Jack on the controller. If your controller is older, you will need an adapter sold separately by Microsoft. Again, it works and is fine for FPSs, but they aren't terribly comfortable and I found myself wishing that I had spent a bit more.

    I’ll start with audio quality, these sound ok but the volume is rather low on these when using on a PS4 and the bass is underwhelming. there’s also a noticeable crackling sound that comes and goes, it was constant at first but resetting the controller helped a lot. Something like the XO four sounds much better. On a side note, these actually sound much louder on an Xbox one and there’s no crackling.

    My son has a pair in green and suggested that I get them I tried them out and I ordered mine right away, but got mine in white to go with my Xbox, they sound great especially if you're playing games where people sneaking up on you you can hear from which side they're coming from also if you're up late and don't want to disturb anybody while watching TV you can use it to binge watch. I play dead space with these and the scare factor is enhanced.

    Solid Headset

    This is a solid and pretty cheap headset for the Xbox one. I didn't want to break the bank just to play with my Xbox friends as my PC headset was not compatible with the Xbox one. As a result these headphones fit the bill. They feel sturdy and fit my head pretty well. The sound is reasonable and my friends have no complaints to how the mic sounds.

    Was shopping around Best Buy for a cheap inexpensive headset/mic to get by and found this. Don't expect it to be like $200+ gaming headsets but you get what you pay for. It works well and doesn't make your ears hurt after long gaming sessions. Clarity is good and detachable mic gives it a clean look. There's a small static noise that emits from the headphones from time to time but it might be because of my front panel jack being jacked up.

    I have never owned a gaming headset for the Xbox One console until I purchased this one. To go from the chat headset included with the console to this one is a world of difference! It adds a whole new level to gaming. You can hear sounds from everything and everywhere. Some sounds you can't hear playing from the TV speakers alone. It's comfy enough to wear for hours for the serious gamer. I'm sold! This is a great buy for the price. Can't beat it!

    For the price of $30 its worth it. The heat set is kind of small if you have a big head like I do. I'm bald and it barely fits. If you have an extra $20 you don't mind putting towards a headset, I'd suggest spending it. I have another $50 headset and you can feel and hear the difference. But if you want to save the money this headset is fine, it works.

    My compatible box for my x12s was slowly breakin so I decided to get a new headset. I chose these because they are decently priced and are double ear which I'm use to. The only con I see with it even thougj it has where I can have chat and game volume at the same time it can get overwhelming quickly because you can't control the volume like you could with the x12s...also the mic is on the left side lol I'm use to it always being on my right

    Hope you don't need the warranty

    The headset overall is comfortable and easy to use. My complaint is the fact that the set failed within 1.5 months of use. No problem, until you have to deal with Turtle Beach. The warranty programming is all email, ok, but the warranty period takes 10-14 business days, making you be without a headset for 3 weeks. Also you have to pay for the shipping there but they are nice enough to send it back. Not very happy to be honest.

    I am incredibly happy with my purchase. This headset has its own volume control which comes in handy while playing games. Please note that you do need the adapter if you are attaching this to an older XBox One controller. The speakers have a very crisp sound. My friends have told me the microphone works very well too. At a lower price than most of the comparable headsets on the market, this was a great product at a great price.
