  1. Nick

    These are nothing fancy. But for what they cost, they have decent sound quality, and they are fairly comfortable for long periods of time. I don’t regret buying them.

    Crap. Not our first turtle beach purchase, bought several. Never last long, always have issues with the wire or connection to controller. Don’t waste your money buying this brand. Turtle beach also couldn’t care less. Got in touch several times regarding headsets and never got a response. Bought for 10 year old son who in all fairness looks after his stuff and has been left devastated when these don’t work. Don’t bother avoid disappointment

  3. Sam

    Brilliant for the price. Bought one pair for myself and another for my brother. Changes your ps4 gaming experience if you play a lot of shooter games, COD, fortnite etc. You can hear enemy footsteps and which direction they’re in.

    Bought as a Christmas gift for my nephews and they love it! Turtle Beach has always been good to me so I went with the brand I know. Works great they said!

    I decided to ignore the reviews for this item where people had said the microphone either didn’t every work or stopped working very quickly. In good faith I hoped the this was just the odd few with a fault. Sadly we received our headset today and after less than 20 minutes of use, the microphone has stopped working. My son was so excited to be able to play fortnight with his friends and join in their conversation and he even used his own money to boy the headset…. he is 9 years old and now very upset. I will be asking for a full refund and will look for another headset and take into account the reviews this time. This is the first time I have ever reviewed an item so that should paint a good picture of my disappointment.

    Lad wanted them for gaming and loves them.
    He can’t hear anything when they are on – you can walk into the room and shout “It’s tea time” and you get nothing.
    Proper jumps when you poke him….

    He’s said the sound is clear and the chat quality is good.
    EVERYONE on the chat can hear it’s tea time…. just not him…. lol

    Received the first headset and it didn’t work well the connection was weak by the plug in piece. I contacted them and they sent a replacement right away no charge and gave me 30 days to return the broken set, which was really nice with the holidays. Returned them yesterday and received the new pair yesterday as well. Perfect. The new set work amazing no issues at all

    I’ve owned way more expensive Turtle Beach Gaming Headphones for many years. At least 6 pair. Wired and Wireless. I’ve always love the sound quality of TB. I was looking for an inexpensive pair for my Xbox One S and these were on sale for around $30. Just what I was looking for. The sound is super clear. Easy to set up and pair. Sometimes I have to turn them down a couple of clicks because they can get a little loud. I’m playing Gears of War 5. Great spacial separation. Very happy with these!

    Good quality headset , also has a mute button on the wire and volume button which is helpful . I do wish the microphone piece wasn’t so long . Other than that a good buy .

  10. Wes Collins

    I got these as a gift, I actually have and use these daily. The removable mic is awesome and allows me to listen to my music out in public with these.
    The sound quality is pretty good. They sit on my head very well and I know the people I got them for will love them!

    This is just a standard 3.5mm headset, which can be used with any device that accepts a 3.5mm plug. It’s advertised as being compatible with Xbox One controllers. As I’ve subsequently found out, the controllers we have require an adapter, which costs more than the headset itself.

    The wording in the advert point to Xbox One compatibility, but you need to dig deep into the words in the description to find that it may or may not be compatible, and even then it’s not clear exactly what is meant by this.

    If you’re going to advertise something that’s Xbox One compatible, surely you should include any necessary adapters to ensure that the advertising claims are upheld?

    I have an older turtle beach headset that was given to me and my girlfriend had this one. I was using hers because she doesn’t play a lot, then one day she wanted to play with me and needed hers back. I instantly noticed the difference in sound when I put my old ones back on. Decided I would just buy my own pair and they are very good for the price. They have a volume scroller and a mute switch on them which my old ones also didn’t have, big plus.

    The headset works well and has lasted a long time. It takes a bit to figure out how to set up but it’s worth the patience.
