Sound cuts on and off

Cons: The headset feels cheap for its price. I expected a more robust construction. Now to the big problem that made me return the item: These work %100 when playing games. But for movies the sound randomly cuts on and off repeatedly. This doesn't happen all the time but when it does it ruins the experience. I have done everything I could to remedy this problem. It just doesn't go away.
Cons: Never pairs with base, can take an hour to get it to work properly, shuts itself off after 5 minutes requiring another hour to turn back on, almost non existent customer support, horrible battery life. Mine never lasted more then an hour off the cord, and after 9 months I could no longer take off the cord
Pros: high quality audio from both speakers and microphone, great flexibility in adjusting the headset (easy movement of the mic in literally all directions, extension of the head piece), extremely long usb/charge only cord which allows me to keep the headset plugged in but still feel as thought I'm using it wirelessly because I can reach every corner of my room without removing the headset,
Cons: microphone inexplicably shuts itself off regularly when the headset is not used for over an hour, and there is no way to know this has occurred until the person(s) with whom you are communicating says that they cannot hear you (it's an easy fix to disconnect the usb/non-charge cord from the box and then reconnect it to the box, but it is very irritating to have to do this several times a day). headset was initially very comfortable; however, after wearing it several h...
Excerpt: I used it on my computer and my PS3. They are clear and nice. They have really good surround sound. They don't have any problems. ALSO THEY ARE REALLY RESISTANT THEY DO NOT BREAK EASILY. FOR EXAMPLE I WAS PLAYING WITH THEM AND MY DAD CALLED ME AND I DIDN'T HEAR HIM SO HE GOT MAD AND SLAMMED THEM TO THE WALL AND THEY STILL WORK PERFECTLY!
Pros: Cutting Edge, Easy To Set Up, Good Instructions, Graphics, Great Value, Online Play, Quality Construction
Summary: The battery life on this is, to be frank, complete garbage. I had this headset charging for over 13 hours and it could only hold a charge of 2 hours. Not quite like Turtle Beach claims right? And the charge while you play option? I couldn't tell, because I would detach the charge cable after I was playing a game or listening to music and it would just be dead and have to wait over an hour to have it usable.
Pros: It has good sound when it wants to work. Also the distance you can go with this is pretty good too. Went to the other side of my house and didn't notice any pops or static.
Cons: Oh boy, where to start. First off, I'd like to point out how awefully made this headset is. Its made of extremely brittle plastic that will shatter on you if you pick it up the wrong way. I had this headset for one month and the bracket decided to pop off on me and only got worse from there. As of this review, I have this thing held together with electrical tape. Second, and what really gets me angry, is the battery life. If you look on the box, it says it can do over...

Summary: After a few minutes the head set throws a fit if sound stops coming out and makes more annoying sound for another 5 min before finally shutting off.
Pros: decent sound, music and games sound good. The big drivers help music with a lot of depth of sound.
Cons: I don't know if this is on everybody headset but with my unit there is a very regular, random, low beeping tone that comes out of the headset, it can be very annoying and there's no way to fix it that i know of.
Cons: They broke along a screw I thought it was my fault/ then they broke on the other side same spot, finally today they started falling to pieces the two earpads are hanging by wires rendering it useless. In all this is a very flimsy product for 100+ dollars. It would also randomly drop sound making push the volume up only to have it silent.
Pros: Loud on the 360 compared to my other turtle beach headsets. Easy to use with the PS3. Best quality i find when using it with my PC and has a long battery charge. Has Nice range and i know your not suppose to do this but because i live on a farm i find them great for shooting to and i can still hear my music from my computer when im in my back yard on the dirt bike doing wheelies lol perfect for me.
Cons: i really don't find this to be a con but if you have no sound going for 5 to 6 min the headset shut off to save battery but is easily fixed by pressing the power button for 6 sec
