Summary: So, I bought this product when I built a new computer because I needed a good gaming headset and I play a lot of pc games. I have never owned a turtle beach product before and this was my first one. I read some of the reviews and seen that they break easily, etc. and I thought "oh well, that's just people not taking good care of their equipment" Soooooo, I bought this product anyways and that was my mistake. The product itself works great.
Summary: In 5 months of light use (purchased April 15th 2012, used maybe 3 times per week at most) the right ear piece extension piece snapped clean in half. Now I can't wear them at all as the plastic is sharp where the break occurred... Decent sound, the mic always feeds into the earphones so you hear yourself talking, cheap quality materials... DO NOT RECOMMEND.
Summary: The head band has snapped on me in two places while taking them off my head. They are now completely unusable. It seems the slight expansion required to uncup your ears is too much for these shoddy headphones. The sound is great but why bother if they are going to break when you put them on your head?
Summary: I bought these back in Dec 2011, used them for the last 3 months and the sound on the right ear piece kept going in and out. The issue was resolved if I "wiggled" the main connector on the left ear piece. I contacted Turtlebeach but no help there:( So I called and spoke to a Amazon rep who is sending me New set this Wednesday..woooot AMAZON ROCKS!! But I wont be buying another pair of Turtlebeach headphones again, pricey for "cheaply" made headphones.
Summary: Was a great headset, a little heavy and uncomfortable but great sound. Then after less then six months, they fall apart. Same story as most other people - the plastic above the ear-cups just cracks under normal use, rendering them unwearable. I made a real effort to take care of these and it was futile. No more turtle beach products for me, and also, no more overpriced headphones. Basic stereo from now on. Feel like a sucker.
Summary: So I've been using these headphones fairly regularly, and have had them for around 4-5 months. The actual quality of the sound coming out is pretty good for the price. However, the right ear muff had the band above it break. The plastic is clearly generic and low quality, and really doesn't last for long. My brother had this happen to him twice, and two of my friends had this happen to them once.
Amplifier is weak, but headset is good and comfortable

Summary: This review is coming from a long time Turtle Beach HPA2 owner. At first I was a bit disappointed when I put these on and listened to music. The bass was terrible. After some experimenting with these and my HPA2's I found that the best combo is the HPA2 amplifier and this headset. Bass is a WORLD apart using the HPA2 amp, and the slight hiss that this headset (and all others that I know of) creates is due to the amplifier, and the HPA2 amplifier has less hiss as well.
Summary: Also ich möchte klar machen das der Audio Qualität sehr gut ist, aber die Haltbarkeit ist nichts wert. Ich hatte schon ein anderes Turtel Beach model, das ging auch Kaput relative schnell, und ich möcht ausdrücklich sagen das ich mit dem Produkt sehr vorsichtig umgangen bin. Als ich dieses Model bestellt hatte, war es schon am linke "Front Speaker" Kaput, ich hab es zurück geschickt und ein neues bekommen (Amazon war wirklich schnell und hat gutes Services gemacht).
Summary: Der Tragekomfort und der Sitzkomfort ist einwandfrei, so wie man es sich wünscht! Man schwitzt nicht, es ist nicht allzu schwer und hat nen tollen Sound! Auch 5.1 Sourround Sound ist gegeben! Einziges Manko: Der Bügel ist nach schon 2 Monaten gebrochen und das Headset konnte man nur in den Mist hauen.
Summary: das ist mein Fazit nach näherer Betrachtung des Turtle Beach EF Z6A. Nachdem sich mein altgedientes Medusa SL-8790 entgültig verbaschiedet hat, bin ich auf der Suche nach einem würdigen und moderneren/weiter entwickelten Nachfolger. Insbesondere im Hinblick auf Stabilität und mechanische Haltbarkeit.
