    Great for game chats, universal for consoles

    So this has been a mixed experience. Overall, it's comfortable, the microphone is good, there are no compatibility issues. The one thing that I'm not super happy about is the way the ear cup sits against my head. There are notches on the edge, presumably so that eye glasses are accommodated, but it makes the speaker a distance from my ear and so it requires a louder volume and it's also not really isolating if that's important. Not perfect, but good. I Will recommend it only if you don't mind the louder volume and lack of isolation.

    I would recommend just spending the extra money, for the nicer headset with the padding, these were just so uncomfortable to wear, it was to stiff and the plastic just isn’t great, though for the headset it’s self and the mic, it works great, so if you don’t mind the uncomfotableness and like the cost, than do it. If not, I suggest the more expensive turtle beach, I have the camo padded ones now, absolutely love !

    The most uncomfortable headset ever

    I wanted to go with a turtle beach headset instead of the insignia one for just brand preference. I assumed the turtle beach would be better quality. Now for $20 I didn't have high expectations but the ear piece has absolutely no padding what so ever! It feels like a large chunk of plastic on my ear. That coupled with how the changing ear design is making it just feel cheap and just uncomfortable. If you are looking for a good basic chat headset for the ps4, avoid this one. Returning it today for the insignia ones.

    First of all, this headset is only $20 ,so its cheap, which is a plus for some. However, there are items that are cheap and great, this isn't one of them! I'm a girl so i have a smaller head, unfortunately it didn't fit me well, even at the tightest it could go. The worst thing was that it was PAINFUL to wear! My head would hurt once I was done using this headset, but hey like I said you get what you pay for. The noise input isn't that great either.

    It’s cheap and you pretty much get what you pay for as far as physical quality - cheap plastic and I wasn’t a fan of the way the top of the headset wouldn’t stop curling from the packaging. However the sound quality is great and the mic picks up my voice great too! Overall I love it. I don’t game a whole lot so it’s perfect for me. Don’t need anything fancy.

    Bought this for the PS4 lasted 2 weeks before the connector came apart in my controller. Can’t recommend a product this defective. Especially from title beach I expected a little better quality. I know it’s I. The budget range. But come on. I have the XP510 for years no issues. Not a trying to compare the two.

    Cheap, but not comfortable

    I bought this alongside Overwatch so that I can talk to my friends and was a little disappointed by the fit of this headset. The ear piece is a hard plastic, which doesn't feel that great. And the volume is pretty low on the headset as well. If you need a cheap, quick solution and don't plan on playing for hours on end, these are alright.

    After the older model broke, I decided to get this one, which is the newer and most certainly cheaper headset. Made for a little kids head, needs to be stretched out. I kept mine in a basketball for a few weeks and it doesn’t give me a headache anymore

    Functional but uncomfortable

    The mic works fine, but the band that goes over your head does not sit flush. I was experiencing uncomfort the entire time I had this on. If you are desperate for a mic this is definitely an affordable option. I have had no problems with the functionality of the mic.

    Quality control on this product was sorely lacking in the plastic headset was severely warped and not wearable. Show this to a sales associate and they wondered if they were all like this he grabbed another one off the shelf and it was indeed warped and on wearable as to say when I returned I would definitely not recommend this to anyone.

    My son bought this as a replacement headset that came with his PS4. He was not interested in a full headset as he wanted to keep one ear uncovered. I appreciate the fact that I can still communicate with him while he is playing since he has one uncovered ear. Decent quality for the price. Will see how durable it is.

    Good headset for the pricepoint

    It is nice enough for the price. Id doesn't get hot because it has the openings for people who wear glasses and I like that it only goes over one ear to I can still hear what is happening in my house. The mic doesn't always stay in the spot you put it however.

    Terrible sound and fit

    We bought this headset because it was the only mono available because we wanted to be able to hear around us while being able to hear the game. The “open ear cup” just means no padding, so it’s extremely uncomfortable, and you can barely hear anything even when turned all the way up.

    I purchased this primarily to chat on IM. It does the job okay, however the fit and comfort is not that great. It probably is not the right item for the purpose I need it for. It is sufficient for the price, however.

    This isn’t the best quality construction or sound wise, but for the price it works absolutely fine. I did give it 5 stars based on the price, but don’t expect this to be high quality. It does the job for my 11 year old just fine.

    bought this headset for my youngest son, he has a tendency to break things. The headset is holding up very well. the sound quality from the earphones and the voice quality of the mic is comparable to more expensive units.

    I bought this for my 9 yr old son as his first gaming headset. He likes it and has no issues. I got this one because he'll still able to hear me when I call him and for $19 I won't be to upset if he breaks it.

    Bought this instead of the PS version, but I regret buying this brand. Not expensive, but if I would have known it doesn't work properly and the audio is not the best, I would have spent the extra ten dollars.

    Pros: It works. Cons: Uncomfortable. Audio from friends too quite even with all volume setting on PS4 maxes and headset volume wheel on high.. Purchased last night, will be returning today. Paid $20...should not have cost more than $10.

    This is an excellent gaming headset for PS4 as well as using it on the laptop to play games, use on Skype etc. It was simple to unbox and set up. Mainly it was plug in and ready to go.
