Summary: These sound great and am very pleased with the purchase. Didn't buy them for gaming or anything other than enjoying music. Good noise reduction and although a bit heavier than I anticipated, they are very comfortable. Highly recommended!
Summary: I've been using Turtle Beach 5.1's for a couple years, but they have the same problems as other 'gamer' headsets in this price range: poor sound quality for music and mediocre bass response. I ordered these because they've impressed a lot of folks in other reviews with their sound quality and booming bass that's enhanced by miniature vibrating motors that give explosions and other bass sounds a new and exciting tactile feedback.
Summary: Excellent as far as headphones go. Easy install, were plug and play for me. The sound was much better than any other headphones i've used, not enough seperation of speakers to give a real 5.1 experience but there's only so much you can do and still keep them on you head. Comfortable, excellent sound quality, with good mic. Highly recommended for gaming or music.I bought a second pair as a backup!!
Summary: The thing that drew me into purchasing these was the True Surround Sound. Even though the driver disk would not run when I inserted it into my Windows 8 machine, it was easy enough to go the Arctic's website and download the drivers from there. As for the sound, perfect. Not only when watching videos on my laptop (I tested it while watching the Hobbit) but also while playing video games, sounds are crisp and clear. This head set rocks.
Summary: These sound really great. They really do. My main gripe with these, is that they sit ON your ears and not over your ears (which is a DUH, since they are not being marketed as over-ear headphones). I can really only use them for a couple hours at most, since I wear glasses, they really clamp hard on my ears. As for the microphone, I don't really know, since I almost never use it.
Summary: Overall: Very good quality sound on the Front Channel, Very Deep Bass/Immerse vibrations, True 5.1 Surround Sound, and an ok Microphone. I recommend it! Especially for the price, feature, and quality combination. Specifics: Pros: *True 5.1 Surround Sound *Overall Very Good Sound Quality *Very Very Deep Bass without being too loud, thanks to the vibration feature.
Summary: The sound quality is perfect, install is easy, and the design needs no improvement. The comfortable design allows me to enjoy hours of gaming with out a break, and the 5.1 Surround Sound help me hear my opponents sneak up on me as well as track those pesky snipers!
Summary: Seriously, still can't get over how great these headphones sound for the price. They fit comfortably over my head and the ears are padded very well. Note: these will not fit all the way over (most) ears. They sit on top of your ear as opposed to around it. But they still have great noise canceling properties. As for the sound, I had to do some fine tuning to get them where I wanted them. That has to be the best part though.
