Reviews and Problems with Turtle Beach Ear Force Charlie
Showing 1-10 of 37
Broke after 20 minutes!
15 March 2014
Summary: As other reviews said, the plastic is cheap and weak, mine broke after ~20 minutes usage. Sound is pretty good, but really a little bit of tension and that it (I previously read all the reviews and try to be very careful, normal usage). I will NEVER buy Turtle Beach products!
Summary: I am a casual PC gamer and I was excited to get my first set of true surround sound head set. Within about 4 weeks of use, the barrel that hold the ear cup onto the head band had cracked. I called Turtle Beach but was told that the headset that I had purchased was a refurbished model and did not qualify for warranty replacement. So now I have a really nice paper weight.
Summary: my g-son who play long hours of video games, ask for this as his Xmas gift. he told me he like it, but that the cables that attach from the headset to his Xbox had to be order separately! that was a additional expense, should all this being included? I look at it as a ripe off!
Sound is good, but I am no audiophile. Construction is less than stellar.

Summary: I have had two sets of these...the first one broke within a month of my buying them- the bracket holding the ear cups to the headstrap broke. TB replaced them within a week. The second one's bracket also broke, after about three or four months, but I was able to cobble it together using some electrical tape and some scrap plastic. looked like hell, but it worked.
Summary: First pair was defective. Very easy return. Second pair had problems, too. Product looked and felt great. Sturdy enough. But the volume-controller box must have had a bad batch - and I got two of them. I didn't replace it. Found something else.
Summary: I originally purchased these Headsets in Spring of 2012 as a present. Out of the box they were everything I had hoped for and more, the sound quality was excellent and the mic was clear with out any feedback or cross feed. I was happy with my purchase. In about a months time however I started to get static and my microphone began cutting out intermittently. I contacted Turtle Beach and was promptly given and RMA and returned the product.
Summary: Came in good condition as expected. It was a gift for a friend that he ask for, when he got it he said it was a better addition then the one he wanted and he couldn't believe that I got this addition for such a great price.
Summary: I bought this to replace my Zalman 5.1 surround sound headphones and was very disappointed. I enjoyed the sound quality and accuracy that I was able to obtain with my onboard sound, however, that was short lived as the speaker wires shorted out after a few months of use. This is probably due to how much the volume control box weighs.
