    I'm not totally satisfied because the plastic parts cracked easily.

    I used this headset for maybe 2 months and the plastic headband broke while putting it on my head one day. Turtle Beach's quality has gone down a lot.

    They seem very sturdy, sound quality is pretty good. My only issue with them is when you move you can hear the plastic rubbing and it just gets a bit annoying after a while.

    You get what you paid for, and I'm not saying that in a bad way either because this headset is very affordable and as someone whos had more expensive headsets, this one is great too. The material doesn't feel the greatest, as in the plastic doesn't have a lot of protection but I'm sure no one should have any major problems with this.

    Decent audio but creaky plastic

    The audio is pretty good on games and movies, but the plastic makes annoying creaking noises even when I'm not moving. The headphone cord was rather short but that was remedied with an extension cable.

    Inexpensive and works fine. The material isn't great but if you never had another you may not notice and they work well. But if you like quality spend an extra $20 and get a better quality headset you will be able to tell the difference.

    Overpriced for what you get. Not the best sound quality and there's definitely better. I'm not a fan of the plastic bits, they feel like they would snap in my hands.

    Breaks on its own - very dissapointed

    Slightly after having a pair for over a year they broke with no fall damage or any other type of reason to break. The cheap plastic it is made of cracked when I literally just picked them up. I spend some extra cash for a nice set and was extremely disappointed. I would not purchase this brand.

    Obviously it is not the most expensive headset, but for the price it couldn't be any better. It is the exact same Mike that I have on a more expensive turtle Beach headset so the call quality is good. The sound quality is pretty good. Really the only place it is lacking is build quality with fairly thin plastic and not the best ear covers. Still a very solid product

    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.

    I'm 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.
