Decent headset for the price

Summary: My P11's broke so I decided to give these a try. Overall, pretty good headset. Fit is pretty snug, the P11's felt a bit oversized in comparison. Sound is pretty good on these despite being stereo headsets. I wound up returning these simply due to the fact I found a pair of Black Ops 2 Tangos on sale. Two issues I had with these headsets is; 1. the hissing noise on these were irritating. If you use the "surround" sound on these then the hiss becomes greater.
Summary: I read several reviews and people's comments on this headset, most of them were highly negative or extremely positive. I was hesitant to spend sixty-plus dollars on a headset if I wasn't absolutely sure they were what I needed. This headset isn't solid as a rock, but it is NOT as cheap as a lot of reviewers have been saying. They are probably the most sturdy headphones I've ever put on, so forget your worries that they will fall apart as soon as they are out of the box.
Summary: I highly recommend this headset... with a catch. You should definitely also get the Ear Force DSS 7.1 Channel Dolby Surround Sound Processor that Turtle Beach also makes, otherwise the connection methods to your system seem quite clumsy. I haven't even bothered to try the headphones by itself, they sound so great together. One morning I woke up earlier than everybody else in the house and was going to play with some friends online.
Summary: I'm another one of the guys who was driving his wife crazy with loud video game volume, plus I've begun to play more online co-op type games that require mics to communicate with other players, so I decided it was time to find a good quality headset. I was surprised to find so few options outside the bluetooth mono ear piece things - and when I came across the P21 headset I was turned off after reading so many complaints about the "hissing" sound.
Summary: For the record, I have 5.1 surround sound but wanted this headset so that I could play while the rest of the family was sleeping. However, my new main reason for this headset is the ability to hear things that I never thought were even in the games. I play PS3 MW2 and SOCOM mainly and was blown away (no pun intended) by the various sounds I could hear. Like footsteps, magazine reloads, etc. I highly recommend this headset!!
Summary: THIS REVIEW IS FOR THE EARLIER P21 HEADSET. WHY AMAZON PUT MY REVIEW ON THIS PAGE FOR A DIFFERENT PRODUCT, I DON'T KNOW. SEE THE BOTTOM FOR DIFFERENCES OF THE 2 STRAIGHT FROM THE TURTLE BEACH WEBSITE. ========================================================================================================== I bought this based on someone talking about it in a SOCOM match. The reviews here also were good. First off, I don't have a true surround system.
Summary: This headset is good. Depending on the game your playing it delivers good stero sound. Cable length is more than enough and setup is explained quite simply. Cups are comfterble and came with replacments if you prefer a softer finish. Mic is very easy to adjust and robust. The only downside is that the build quality of these is slightly lacking.
Summary: I bought this to use with a Turtle Beach DSS2, and so far I am enjoying the headset. Unfortunately, as of the time of writing this review, I have yet to use the microphone (haven't bothered with Skype calls yet, but I will update once I have). The sound is crystal clear and I am actually able to pinpoint where the different sounds are coming from.
Summary: Purchased the headset for my girlfriend as she had started out gaming online. Had watched numerous video's on numerous headset products and came to the conclusion that these were best value for the money as i didn't want to spend the money i have on my Astro A40's. The sound quality is real good for the price,deep bass, rich treble & the ability to adjust the Game sound & Mic sound independantly is top notch also has a stereo widening feature that imitates surround.
