Listed as new but is refurbished


Item was listed as new, item is not new, item is refurbished. Shipped in box with no padding or bubble wrap to protect the items from being scratched or otherwise damaged in shipping. Did not come in the box that was pictured, came in a plastic bag....

Good while they lasted


Pretty good sound quality and relatively comfortable and easy to use.

These are more "on ear" rather than "around ear" so they get a little uncomfortable after a while. They ended up breaking for me after about 3 months of use. The wiring inside the rubber casing was very loose and only transmitted to one ear or the...

Turtle Beach TBS-2130-03


I've had a pair for more than a year before, but they kept breaking after a couple months even after proper care. They were replaced under the warranty, but it's still something to take into consideration when buying these. Other than that, there's...

Amazing. Nice bass and chat boost. Crystal clear Mic Crystal clear sound Long cable

Breaks Easily Fragile One side goes out after a couple weeks

Review after PC use


While comfortable, the initial stregnth of the ear-cups being forced together is a little strong, and may make them somewhat un-comfortable to wear early on. Other than that it is a high quality produck and I would highly consider buying it again...

Good quality cound and Bass, microphone has great sensitivity and ear cups are very comfortable

If used on a laptop or not dostant from desired device, the still bundeled cord can weigh a lot and makes me fear it possible damaging the USB connector if your not careful. I reccoment un-wrapping the cord's legnth to a moderate extend of using it at...

excellent for the price range


I've had these headphones for a little over a year, but I accidentally stepped on them, so I bought another pair from newegg. These are excellent for the price range. Many features, epic. Do it.

I would not buy this if you are a grown adult. Maybe for a teenager or younger. The headset is so small that it has not fit my friends or I in our 20's. Its almost painful to have on after 30 minutes of gaming. While the sound quality is incredible it...

Sound quality is amazing

Headset plastic moving pieces are loose and cheap. The headset is very tight and uncomfortable, this must have been built for children and they did not label it.
