Showing 1-10 of 11
Too complicated and uncomfortable
5 April 2014
Summary: Purchased this headset based on some 2014 Best headset reviews and when it arrived it felt like a quality piece. If I had the time to properly configure the sound to my games I may have kept it. In addition to the complicated configuration settings, I also felt that this headset was a bit too tight.
Summary: Initially had problems with the sound and contacted Turtle Beach Customer Service, but the only was to contact them is by email which takes them 2 - 3 days to receive a response, which was really frustrating. After I solved the problem with the sound on my own, they sound incredible!
Summary: I bought this headset back in March. I got them over Astros because they were recommended by a buddy of mine. as a lot of people said the left ear cup goes out. In my case the Chat cable went out and now i have to use the phone adapter cable in order to chat with friends. I've contacted Turtle Beach support about a month ago... still waiting for a reply. NOT WORTH THE $300!!!!!! Also with the new consoles coming out i guarantee the headset won't work with them.
Summary: better presets added/fixed then maybe this ACU would become viable.
Pros: Everything except the Audio Control Unit. Super ergonomic headphones and cables.
Cons: Audio Control Unit super flat sound and is pretty must useless unless daisy chaining with team, which is only viable reason to spend 250$ (call your manager). Cheap feel, gimmicky ACU. That said most people with enough money to afford theses have a better ACU already. My 20$ is functionally better. Also my unit wasn't complete... missing a cord "K" needed to link the sound of the audio control unit into an additional audio out port. lucky i had an extra. . . but for t...
Failed within hours of use; great headset while it was working

Summary: Used with a 2011 Xbox 360 Standard and Halo 4. Overall: The sound quality, features, and comfort of this headset are incredible. The reliability, however, has become an issue within just a few hours of use. Sound: The sound is rich in detail and very immersive, not to mention noticeably better than the lower-end headsets like the Turtle Beach X12.
Summary: Pros: -The sound is great and the control pad is amazing. -It's very customizable Cons: -IT HURTS. The headband has absolutely ZERO comfort. It's just some leather and then you directly have the metal band on your head. After about 30 minutes your head hurts and you have to move it around. Very annoying. -The cord has this big connector to change the wire and it's very heavy and gets caught on everything.
