Your skull will be crushed and the cheap earcups plastic will start to make a squeaking annoying sound.

Summary: This headset crushes your skull like no other, after 45 minutes of use your head will start begging for you to take them out. In addition, it is made of cheap plastic, which I don't mind much, but after the third day of use it starts developing a super annoying loud squeaking sound of cheap plastic in the left ear cup. By EVERY slight move of your head, the thing starts to do a squeaking sound like crazy.
Turtle Beach... Normally excellent... but avoid this offering.

Summary: I have owned the XP Seven headphones for approximately a year. Overall the sound quality is excellent, and the headset is made well of quality materials. This is what saves the unit from a one star review.... but to be frank you can get this from pretty much any other major manufacturer of quality headsets. If you are buying for a PC and don't care to read the review, save yourself money.
Summary: The sound was absolutely great, the mic was nice and the custom EQ is a neat feature but these headphones have the same issue that all Turtle Beach headphones have, they break. Every single set of Turtle Beach headphones I have bought have broken, and same with all of my friends. about two weeks after I had them, the left ear cup stopped working so I returned them to get a differant company (astro a40) and will not use TB again.
When you spend almost 300 dollars on a pair of headphones, those headphones should be near perfect.

Summary: I purchased these headphones a few months ago. I purchased them at Best Buy, so I was browsing the store and wanted to get the best possible gaming headphones money could (realisitically) buy. These were on the pricey side but boasted some of the most impressive specs I've seen so I picked them up. As my title suggests, I expected these headphones to straight up be like God forged them himself.
Summary: My suggestion is if your head size is larger then a 6 1/2 hat size this head set is not for you. I was able to bend the headset to fit. The headset is quite complicated to setup each time I start in game it takes time to initialize or set to the game requirements. My Logitech never had this problem. Over priced for the average gamer a lesser priced headset will work just as good.
Summary: I originally got this because I've always owned TB headsets In the past so I though I would give this a try, and for 220.00 It should be pretty good, right? No not really, I didn't have any discomfort like some people have complained about, but the sound was just so so, and the microphone was horrible!
stick with something simple and you know and not waste your money

Summary: i dont know where to start with these, the fit around the head is super tight it just squeezes your head, the leather memory foam ear pieces are okay but they much make your ears/head sweat and i hate the speaker positioning on the controller sucks i hate messing with those it just messes the whole headset up, they are really quiet out of the box and but with the sound editor on the pc you can make them a little/alot louder but its so confusing and way to much for the...
Uncormfortable, Head Crushing, Better Sound Elsewhere Without the Headache
3 August 2013
Summary: How uncomfortable these are cannot be overstated, I returned them. I have never considered the comfort of headphones very important, but these headphones have managed to change my entire philosophy regarding that, I didn't know they could exist headphones which were THIS painful to wear. I have an average sized head, not very big or very small, and they were so tight that they felt like a metal vise trying to crush my head.
Summary: IMPORTANT UPDATE: 5-23-2013 Like many others, my left ear cup went out. I didn't drop them, never mishandled them in anyway, always took the best care of them, and yet the ear cup still went out. Turtle Beach promptly responded to my issue with an RMA request. They didn't try to troubleshoot it at all (because they know its an issue I assume). So I sent my XP Seven back to them. To their credit, the RMA process was very quick and easy.
