Great headset, although the advertisement doesn't tell all...

Summary: This headset does not come exactly as advertised. This headset was originally designed for PS3 and XBox 360. It is advertised to work with both nextgen systems as well. It does. What they don't tell you is that with a PS4 you have to reprogram the headset with an update from Turtle Beach. The other major problem is that Sony has gone backward with their system capabilities. PS4 does not have dual band technology, so you are stuck with a 2.4 G/hz transceiver.
Summary: incredible sound, when i show others what a headset can sound like, they have an eargasm and buy one promptly. no interference from other sources like previous models as this is dual band. before wife would use microwave, and i hear static, not so now. great range on sound and BT, even through walls; 30ft. Pisses me off when im just listening to youtube and it constantly powers off if not plugged in or using BT. Auto power off preserves battery i guess.

Summary: awesome headset is only one saying you just can't talk to other people online the mic doesn't work for some reason......you have to plug it into the PlayStation joystick in order for the mic to work...
Summary: I am coming from having used the dpx21 for a long time, it had simulated surround sound but i had enough of having a long cable running all along my living room so i dont know i takr to long to go wireless but sure is a fine comodity The headset is pretty sturdy and solid, really confortable and very light, the px21 used to gave me headaches when i was playing for more than an hour.
Summary: i love these things. being able to hear quiet footsteps and suppressed gunshots in cod. and even the surround sound in other games. i only had a few really minor issues with them. one which the mic seems a bit twisted in the jack. might just be my headset. on one side where the headband extends seems a bit sticky and hard to pull/push. another is all the presets I've downloaded don't seem to want to install to my headset. also the price... THE PRICE! OMG!
Summary: Good headphones, sound is great and wireless is superb. Some cons: If you mute the mic, the entire party hears a beep not just you. If you're battery is low and the notification goes off it broadcasts it to your entire party. I was a bit disappointed when the headset is Bluetooth but i can't use it withe ps4. I still have to have a wire to my controller. If you can live with the above mentioned then get these.
16bit(8000Hz) (Telephone Quality) Microphone. SOUNDS HORRIBLE! I'll stick with my X41's

Summary: I own a pair of Turtle Beach x41 and thought it was about time to upgrade, I was wrong and I'm back to the good ol' X41's. The PX51 sounds amazing and is by far a good product if you don't care if people can hear you. If you plan on using this headset for chatting, boy do I have a surprise for you! How would you like to get that authentic old school telephone quality for your gaming? We're talking 16bit 8000Hz!
They are great aside from developing a headache when wearing them!

Summary: It's pretty good.....but it is TIGHT on my head. I can only were it for so long before my head feels like its going to collapse. I get a serious headache when I wear this for too long. I'm not even talking hours of wearing it either. That's my biggest complaint about these headphones, but I do like them over all. My voice is clear when talking to friends, the sound quality is great, and its WIRELESS!
Summary: The sound and design of this headset is fairly good for being a product that is roughly 2 or so years old. There is not much cushioning on the headband but doesn't seem to affect overall comfort. What did affect comfort for me were the ear pads. The top of my ears started to hurt after about an 60-90 min of gameplay. This may not be the case for other users though. I was pretty disappointed when I used this headset for listening to music.
Summary: I've used the headset on a variety of devices including computers and mobile tablets and phones (which is advertised), and the automatic shutoff seems to turn the headset off prematurely half the time which is incredibly frustrating. I've also attempted to do a firmware update, as the software (which crashes half the time as well) said an update was available, but all that has done was lock the headset up 10 or so times that I tried to update it, and ended up with the...
