IF YOU'RE A LONGTIME PC user, you might remember Turtle Beach as one of the original manufacturers of computer audio hardware—we're talking soundcards that competed with the best that Creative Labs had to offer. You might also have been dismayed in...

Decent head set


over all fairly happy with the head set

Great sound ; mostly comfortable ; Ok price, I felt they were selling at a slight premium for what they are ; The surround seems ok, but its not perfect by any stretch, I guess given the fact they are head phones its decent

They don't feel very heavy, but my neck is slightly strained, may just need to adjust to wearing a large headset ; the biggest con is not the headphones its the mobo manufactuer cheaping out on inputs even though the sound card can handle 5.1 and a mic...

Great Sound ; Comfortable

Front right speaker stopped working little after a month ; Mic stopped working about two months ; Loud eletrical popping noise after mic stopped working ; Customer service from Turtle Beach ; javascript:Biz.Feedback.RateProduct.Form.submit('display')

Lack of Software Brings it Down


Microphone Sounds Excellent ; Comfortable ; Nifty amplifier device controller ; Great (true) 5.1 Sound

Lack of software support to control the microphone EQ and other options -- most importantly, THE PLAYBACK SOUND MONITOR ; Anything the microphone picks up will playback through the speakers, while this is useful for vocal performers and such, it's...

Works Amazing


Unlike all of the bad reviews of this headset breaking mine turned out better. The secret from making this last one month to a few years is be gentle with the chassis it isn't made of the best plastic but will hold up fine if treated with care. Beside...

Great Sound, Broke in a Month


The sound quality for this item is extraordinary, but the chassis quality is bad. Small plastic piece that connects the ear piece to the headband broke after 1 month of heavy use.
