    A bit bulky but light enough to wear for long periods of time.

    Not a fan of bulky headsets. This one sucks.

    I find it uncomfortable and much too. bulky, now triple that because I am a female. However, I didn't have many choices with an Xbox One. I have been rough with the headset for a few months now and the sound quality is still good, but it gives me a headache from the weight of it.

    You get what you pay for. Headphones work well but are not very loud and mic is a little bulky.

    Really like these. Wish they weren't quite so bulky though.

    Great gamer headset and actually pretty good for watching movies. Comfortable pads, just looks dorky. Will be for the kids.

    The sound quality is excellent. It is one of the best sets I have heard. The design could be a little more streamlined.

    The Ear Force Recon 50x gaming headset from Turtle Beach is the right product for you! If you are someone who is just getting in to the competitive gaming scene or is just a serious gamer, look no further. This headset will cover all the needs and expectations you have for your first legitimate gaming headset because it's price is low, it's comfortable, and it functions very well. At under $50 this is the best headset you can buy. Since Turtle Beach is one of the most respected headset makers, you know the quality will at least be better than most. However, I'm here to tell you that this is the best low-end option. If you are anything like me, you will look at buying a gaming headset one of two ways. 1) Buy the best headset you can at the lowest price possible, or 2) just go out and buy the very best headset you can for upwards of $300. Since I was a beginner, I chose to stay relatively cheap and go for just an OK headset. I ended up with AMAZING value. A huge worry for cheaper headsets is comfort. I can't say the Recon 50x is comfortable as the very expensive headsets, but it's quite comfortable nevertheless. The headset is easily adjustable and has a good amount of padding. Personally I've used the headsets for hours on end with no comfort problems. One very minor nuisance is that if you have older Xbox One controllers, you will need a headset adapter. These are fairly cheap but they do slightly make the controller more cumbersome in your hands. I've now had this headset for four months and everything about it still functions perfectly. I've not even treated it that well. When I bought this headset, the main thing I wanted it to do was enhance the way I hear the games I play. You really can hear the improvement! It is much better then playing without one. Even though this product does not have noise canceling, it does dampen outside noise considerably. In conclusion, I would definitely recommend the Turtle Beach Ear Force Recon 50x for any serious gamer just coming on to the competitive scene. It really does all you could ask and more for a headset that costs under $50. Again, I hope you consider this product when searching for a gaming headset because it's WONDERFUL!
