Summary: Most uncomfortable headset ever, not even good sound quality, annoying background static. I'd give it zero stars if I could. My head is average size, maybe even a little smaller but it felt like it was squeezing my head. Definitely not glasses friendly. I tried leaving it stretched over my computer case for a week and it was still extremely tight.
Summary: Sound was great, Dolby Surround almost perfect... As long as it works. After few months breakaway cable went broken. Not expensive replacement. After another few months the control unit started switching itself without reason. That was enough... Amazon Customer Service was really helpfull to sort this issue. However I will stay away from Turtle Beach. It looks like they now make cheap, low quality headset for high end price.
Summary: I never go out of my way to write a review...but $250 headphones that only last two weeks?!?!?! Come on Turtle Beach! I am very unsatisfied. My $60 headphones lasted longer than these. I should have listened to the others...please don't make the same mistake I did. I took great care of these...next thing I know, one ear goes out. I unplugged the chord going from the headset to the controls and plugged them in.
Summary: Now before I go into the review, Turtle Beach's website says that these are compatible with the PS4. To me, and I would venture to guess, anyone that doesn't work for Turtle Beach, compatible would mean that the items contained in the box work properly with the PS4. I am having substantial audio problems with the XP Sevens and the Audio Control Unit. During game play the volume will go down to a level such that you could barely hear the spoken word.
Uncomfortable sub pare performance and too complicated.

Summary: I felt the earphones were uncomfortable. Too many wires, too complicated to operate. The amplifier was too large, but worst of all, there was a buzzing noize in the microphone unless the chat volume was turned down so low that it was almost useless. I gave them away and purchased the 510 which I am very happy with.
Summary: After using these very expensive headphones for several months I can steadfastly state that I am thoroughly disappointed in Turtle Beach's flagship headphones for ONE INCREDIBLY BLATANT DESIGN FLAW; For some reason these headphones clip sounds quieter than a given level. So, to restate: extremely QUIET sounds are choppy and sound like they are fading in and out rapidly.
Step Backward, No airflow, Topband Digs, Bad presets.

Summary: Pros Extremely customizable presets. Advance Sound Editor Software. Compatible with any setup. Microphone is good. Cons Not Dolby 7.1 Pleather Ear Cups (Feels heavy, no airflow, gets hot) Little padding on headband, digs into head. Digital optic audio cable is unbelievably cheap and thin. Audio cuts in and out because the threshold is set to max by default. You have to download software to correct this.
This set really shines in a few areas and then one feature just destroys its ability to function.

Summary: First I would like to say I have had a lot of headsets. This set really shines in a few areas and then one feature just destroys its ability to function. When I first got it I was very happy and really enjoyed the feel and sound. Pros: * The headset is very sturdy. I'd say quality manufacturing. (again 8 of 10) * Sound quality is 8 out of 10 much better than your average pair of head phones. * This type of headset can get heavy on the neck exp.
Summary: My son was given these for Christmas. He also has the quad speaker Trittons and some cheaper Turtle Beach headphones. It seems that all gaming headphones come to our house to die. This is the THIRD set of very expensive headphones to QUIT. (Can the problem be an Xbox USB port power surge or something??? None of the headphones have been dropped or physically damaged in any way so I'm beginning to be suspicious. This current set worked last night.

Summary: Pros: - Amazing positional accuracy - In game sounds are amazing - crazy configurations Cons: - Does not work with PC - Their support takes about 3 days to respond 1 time Well after reading countless reviews on this headset I decided to take the plunge and get it over all the others in the price range. I chose these over the other sevens due to the fact that I game on an xbox, pc, and playstation. So these seemed like the perfect choice.
