Summary: Wireless option did not work, as I found out later on the internet later this is a common problem with these. Sent 2 emails and the answer was they had "never heard of this problem". Internet proves them wrong!!!
Summary: Not worth it, I would resale mine for 45$ if someone would want to buy them. They are not even worth that much. Reason - Batteries always dies, loses connection constantly(even when no other signals are being sent wirelessly). Only compatable with 360 makes a big difference too.
Summary: I received this headset for Christmas, and I was VERY excited about them! Having owned a pair of TB X11's for over a year, I was eager to upgrade. Setup: Setup was VERY easy. One thing I highly enjoyed about the base unit was the fact that it uses a USB to power up, instead of a power cord.
Summary: I bought this headset as my first Turtle Beach headset. I was excited for the programmable presets and the all wireless features. The good: The programmable presets were fantastic. User interface with the program was not overly difficult, and the availability of downloadable presets was adequate.
Summary: I bought these new and they are nice but the drawback is they are hell on AA Batteries. Overall it worked and sounded great. After 2 years the headset cracked. I knew it was out of warranty so I tried to buy a part. Turtle Beach does not sell parts nor repair out of warranty.
Summary: Snap, crackle, nothing. Sound cuts in and out frequently. You can lose all sound for 2-5 seconds straight eliminating the whole point of wearing them on games. They also do not have a rechargeable built in battery like most.
Summary: Alright, let's talk about the Turtle Beach XP500 for a minute. I bought the XP500 in November of 2011, and at the time, had no problem at all with them. I bought the headset as an upgrade for my TB X31s, so there was an obvious improvement.
