Excerpt: While these headsets do serve admirably for their intended purpose, they are being marketed to gamers at an outragious price for not a lot of quality in return. They seem like a huge step up from the headset that is packaged with the Xbox 360 by default, but that is because those dinky little headsets are beyond garbage.
Summary: The headset on its own is great. Good quality and a very comfortable headset to game with. The playback of your own voice is great to prevent being too loud when talking over a game. I bought about 4 of these headsets total before I moved on to try others. Each of the 4 headsets lasted only 4 months max with one of them only lasting about two months and then breaking.
Summary: i was looking for turtle beaches cause i had an xbox 360 . i mostly play black ops but i had them for 3 weeks and they broke do not get turtle beaches. i would not recommend these to a friend . my next choice is trittons .
Summary: This headset was exactly what I was looking for to use with my xbox 360 and with my new macbook (or so I thought). On the xbox side, everything indeed works swimmingly. However, on the mac the microphone is unusably quiet. After a bunch of hunting, I think I've tracked the problem down to the fact that modern macs don't have a microphone jack -- they have a "line in" jack that expects a much higher voltage than the headset mic provides.
Summary: I purchased the x11 headset from amazon when they first released their new line of headsets for the xbox. I didn't care much for wireless functionality (at that time) so i figured I could save a little and get these without dealing with any setup. I plugged them into my wired xbox 360 controller as well as my wireless controller only to find that they let out a harsh buzzing noise whenever I spoke, I contacted turtle beach and they responded saying the amplifier is...
Summary: The sound is awesome and really does change MW2 into a completely different game. The independent voice volume is amazing as well. That said, there is way too much cord. The main cord is WAY too long and branches off into 3 cords at the end, one of which isn't even used on the Xbox (Mic In), and there is a separate cord dangling from the volume control box that goes to your controller. I also didn't pay attention to the USB-powered part...
Summary: This headset is great for people looking for high sound quality but the problem lies in it's built. Product breaks easily even though the headset itself is durable. The wires however are easily torn and can happen in a matter of months. Mine broke down in two months and I couldn't talk the people. In addition I asked people I play with on Xbox Live and World of Warcraft who had the same headset and they all conveyed having the same issues.
