Pros: Nice looking that's it. PLEASE READ THE REVIEWS !!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Cons: These "SUCK" . Customer Support is at the bottom of the negitive scale you cant get anyone to talk to. theres just to much bull to go throught to get them to work on PC just a bad product . im going to return mine i've had better luck with a W41-M4RT headset and for less money
Summary: contacted tech support via e-mail will have to wait until they send me a fix or RMA. More junk from China.
Pros: Sounds well was unable to use more than one day.
Cons: stopped working after one day and connecting it to the ASE management software. IT connected, I made no changes and had to reboot the ASE to down load the new firmware. after the reboot of the ASE the power on the head will not turn on. changed out the batteries with new ones, and the power on do...
Cons: Very hard to set up correctly, also has a lot of problems working in a home that has other wireless tech being used. No matter the settings I couldnt get the things to work right without turning off ALL my other wifi and bluetooth items, in a home with 6 other wireless toys this just isn't doable...
Summary: the first few days i owned this product, i thought it was a bit buggy, but was overall impressed. as time passes on, more and more issues become apparent with it, if it had worked better, i would not be going through the process of RMAing it back. the headset was a good idea with bad execution.
Pros: great sound when it works comfortable
Cons: bad battery life does not recharge with usb attached, very frustrating. very sensitive to signal distortion. crackles/cuts out way too easily. finnicky setup, sometimes shuts itself off when i plug in the usb and refuses to power on, even after fresh batteries. interferes with wifi and bluetooth ...
Summary: While it functioned, this headset was almost (but not quite) as good as the 40$ model it was replacing. A bad value, then it failed...
Pros: Worked as described with gaming consoles, with excellent audio for surround sound emulation, Bluetooth connects easily with any device you have, and the device seems very sturdy.
Cons: The headset worked fine, for just long enough to get through the warranty period. It then began producing audio artifacts, many nearly deafening (reminded me of an old dial-up modem). These went away after a reboot. Now the device is failing to function as a Bluetooth headset, with effort and fin...
Summary: Amazing headset, truly amazing audio quality(brain still blown) compared to stereo. But friends and fellow nerds, this microphone is so bad it is completely useless. For that reason alone, this otherwise WONDERFUL headset becomes.. another wired headset because you need another mike.
Pros: - The earcups are covered in a woven-cloth material! Very comfortable, doesn't stick to you when hot.. So comfy and won't crack like 'leather' type pads. These ear-pads are great! Superior! - Very comfortable, not heavy, balanced. I got large ears and they fit. - Good battery life (NiMH) - Amazin...
Cons: - The microphone on this unit has extremely bad audio quality rendering it useless. This defeats the idea of the headset being wireless. Its just like Zunepod described in his post. -Never heard the low battery warning - Overall, this one is a great headset, but since the mike sucks so bad, it de...
Summary: I bought this set because I was looking for something with atleast 5.1 Dolby surround sound and Wireless. First of the sound quality is amazing and the presets that you are able to select from are great. It took less than 10 minutes to hook up to my PS3.
Pros: Amazing Sound Easy Setup
Cons: Doesn't work well if you have any wifi devices. talking comes through as static.
Summary: This is the second pair I have had in about 1 month. The first set I returned because it had about a 5 foot range from the transmitter with unobstructed line of sight. The second set I can't even install on the PS3.
Pros: They look pretty
Cons: Tech support? What tech support. No one to call, just send 'em an email or fax 'em and hope you get an answer. Follow the instructions on setup and you get nowhere. Options don't appear in the PS3 console as it says they are supposed to in the User Guide. No option to choose the "Turtle Beach PX5...
Pros: Amazing sound. Easy to set up. Set up so you can use both your 360, and PS3. Comfortable.
Cons: Noise. Interference. There is nothing like playing a game and listening to gorgeously reproduced music then having static and then having the headset go out then come back on. I am 10 feet from the receiver and I've moved it all around a large living room with the same result.
