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: 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.
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 to replace my aging X11's. I have had them for about 4 months now, and sadly I still end up using my X11's a majority of the time. Sound Quality: The sound quality is amazing and the 8 different presets are useful and are completely customizable.
Tb's Flagship uses the most crowded freq on the planet

Summary: I bought a pair of these only to end up returning them a week later due to frequency saturation. They run on 2.4Ghz. That means it's competing with every device in your house. The microwave, cordless phone, WiFi, smartphones, etc. most of these devices use 2.4Ghz.
So it works with Xbox and PS3, that is the only improvement.

Summary: Having used Turtle Beach hardware for years I thought I'd check these out since I play both platforms, that is the only improvement over the X4's. Yes you can also do away with the cable connecting your controller to your headset but the loss of sound clarity and easy access to mute and chat volume...
