My initial reason on purchasing this headset was to supplement my current PS4 headset (Gold Edition PS4 Headphones) which is a great, great headset but the battery life was horrible. I recently picked up Black Ops 3 for the PS4 and the Gold PS4 headset would die after just a few hours of gameplay (Not to mention that I own TWO PS4 controllers because the battery life is horrible as well, the light bar kills the battery tremendously, no way to turn it off.) so, I decided on purchasing a new headset to game with.
After numerous days of researching between headphone brands (since I loved my Gold PS4 headphones so much, I almost bought the grey 20th anniversary Gold PS4 Edition to go along side with the controller.) going wired or wireless, price points, features, etc...I ultimately decided on the Turtle Beach PX24.
I own both a PS4 & an Xbox One which was a plus in my book since it's compatible with both systems. (Keep in mind that if you have the non-3.5mm Xbox One controller, you'll have to purchase a stereo adapter for this particular headset to work, since the Xbox One controller lasts a lot longer than the PS4 controller, I'm just going to buy the Microsoft ChatPad, it doubles as a stereo adapter so can you use the PX24 with it, and one top of that, it's a chatpad, which is a win-win in my book!)
The battery life on the amp which powers the headphones is tested by Turtle Beach to run 30+ hours of gameplay. I don't play that long of a gaming session to compare that claim but I'll take their word for it. It lasts longer than my Gold PS4 headset in real time so I'm assuming that claim is correct. It plugs directly to the PS4 3.5mm jack & if you have the new Xbox One controller, the same applies. Like I said, if you have the old Xbox One controller, I recommend on buying the ChatPad if you do not want to buy a new controller.
Now my cons, or should I say con. The only gripe I have is that the voice/party chat & game volume are one and the same, it cannot be controlled separately since it's main audio source is coming from your controller. The more expensive headphones I think, don't quote on this, have this functionality. I'm not going to spend console money to have this functionality, it's just not that serious to be honest. You'll have to adjust accordingly in the party settings to get the right balance, and believe me you are going to want to since certain people can be louder or have that annoying friend that run movies while they game?! Lol, which makes no sense to me at all! Why are you even playing lol...
In terms of comfort & fit, it's pretty comfortable for a hour or so #you should take breaks anyway to rest your eyes & head) it does leave indentations on the side of your head if you wear glasses like me when you game, so it's best to take a break if you've been playing for an hour or so. Overall, pretty comfortable.
Conclusion, it's price point is excellent if you are a casual gamer, even if you game a lot, the amp lasts a long time so I wouldn't be surprised if it did last 30+ hours, your controller might die before your amp does though. Multi-platform compatibility, Super-Human hearing which does work for Call Of Duty type games to enhance your gameplay. It gets the job done for my personal needs and I will definitely enjoy this headset for many years to come!
