Summary: I am almost sentimental in writing this review, it is a great headset that has served me well, and if I ever walk the console path again, I wouldn't pause to pick up a pair of Turtle Beaches. Though not that applicable to the PC side of the spectrum, they still are on my neck in the morning when I fall asleep watching movies or listening to music.
Pros: My friends, this headset has been with me for years. When I dwelled in the lowly peasant position of Console Gamer, I wore these headphones for hours on end, toiling away on Skyrim, Halo 3, Fallout, and so on. I could have easily logged a month with these on over the years. Needless to say they were worn well and with pride, and have lasted its way to a 5 star review. I have stepped on them, thrown them around, put them on my dog, dropped them on full plates of food a...
Cons: The Cable. That's it. The Cable. So easily lost, but also easily replaceable, and cheap too. Over the course of 3 to 4 years, I think I have gone through 4 besides the stock white one.

Summary: This was advertised as being compatible with Xbox 360 and PS3. After downloading and watching several videos to try to figure out how to make them work, it was determined that an extra adapter (not included) would need to be purchased to make it work for PS3 and even then, the microphone would not work. So in the end, it was a waste of time and money. I honestly do not know how the product works, but for PS3 it is useless.
other than the wifi issue, these are awesome and crystal clear

Summary: I bought one of these headsets a year or so ago and havent used it for months. It screws with my wifi signal at my house for some reason and made my games lag. Eventually, I couldn't even sign into xbox live. I dont know if it has anything to do with this headset, but when I disconnected it completely, my xbox live seemed to work perfectly fine again. These also chew through batteries like their nothing.
Nice if you can find them for cheap and are prepaird to have alot of cords
