  • Very easy to set up and use

    It’s common sense for headset gamers to know how to work a headset so it very easy figuring out the buttons and setting it up. I really like the quality of the headset and the ear cushions are really comfortable. The sound quality is good also, though when I first turned them on I could hear myself and any background noises but it was fixed when I plugged the usb stick into the Xbox. There are 4 different sound modes and the sound overall is a solid 9/10 for its price.

  • Mic Monitoring was maxxed out

    If you're having an issue with mic monitoring picking up every sound in your house, there's two ways you can adjust it.

    1. turn dongle switch from "xbox" to "usb" then adjust audio setting from the home button audio menu at the bottom right. Then switch back.

    2. Download the Turtle beach audio hub app on your PC or Mac. Connect dongle in "usb" mode and plug headset into a port. Update and change mic monitoring levels from app.

    Bought these for my fiancée and the mic monitoring was terrible. Now it's much better.

    • Sound quality

      I always used turtle beach for my headsets and I thought getting this one would work just as well since I broke my other one. But after pairing it to my Xbox my friends said it sound like I’m talking through a drive threw headset. I can hear everything just fine, others just can’t hear me well no matter what I do to the settings. So would not recommend this :/

    • Turtle Beach does it again!

      Turtle beach has been doing A+++++ headsets for a while now. This latest version does not disappoint. For big heads like me, there will be a break in period where they will fit in better. The sound quality was excellent to me and my friends said the microphone worked very well .

    • TIGHT. Good headset, but runs small

      So far I haven’t decided whether to exchange/return. Its a good headset. EXCEPT tgat its super tight, if i wear it for more tgan 2hrs, i start getting a headache and i can hear my heartbeat in my ears. This is plastic for the most part, so im worried it’s going to break whenni try and stretch it out. I’ve been leaving it on my couch armrest to try stretch it a little. So far it works, but after awhile it goes back to squeezing my head. I can wear small hats so either these are make for kids, or people of a smaller nature , idk.

      The battery live is great so far, however I’ve only had them for a week, but i use them daily for a few hours each day, and have had no trouble.

      The mic is something to get used to, it picks up everything *BUT only in YOUR ear not in a chat. So unless you have your name pop up in chat, you’ll be wondering if people can hear everything you do. Im accustomed to noise canceling headphones, so this is new, I’ve been told it helps you from speaking loudly (for the people around you irl lol, and I haven’t gotten gripped at for being too loud, so thats good).

      It have 2 different volumes, 1for in game, 1 for chat. So far it’s worked as it’s supposed to, I feel ive had to turn up my chat louder, however some people are just quiet.

      The color is a cute aqua. The cushion is thick and comfy around your ears. Only complaint is how narrow/tight the band is, i have to wear it closed cuz i have a small head, or they just tip over if i pull the band further apart. So idk

    • Unforgiving plastic

      Had these for about 4 months until I picked them up to put them over my head and they snapped. I always handled them with care, knowing how stiff the plastic was. On top of that, I had problems with people in my party hearing every little sound in my room that I could never remedy.

      Battery lasted long though so that was nice

    • FANTASTIC update

      I already had a pair of Gen 2s and they've been absolutely lovely to work with. Same issues with them in terms of build quality. Some people report about the foam hurting their ears after prolonged use. I can't say I agree with that and I even wear glasses so, take that how you want.

      It does come with the 2.4Ghz adapter which is great! I really dig the color and the controls are easy to work with.

      MAKE SURE YOU UPDATE THE HEADSET VIA THE COMPUTER. If you have a question on how to do it, TurtleBeach has great FAQs and can help walk you through it so you don't break anything.

      Overall I love the color, love the product iteration and will continue to recommend this as a basic, "pro-entry-level" headset.

    • Comfortable, solid sound, and fairly budget friendly headset by Turtle Beach. Great value!

      Solid headset that doesn't break the budget. Had my niece try them on for a round of Fortnite and she said loves them. The headset is very comfortable and has a good feel to it. It's not light like paper but feels strong and built to last. Battery headset goes awhile before needing to charge. Mic came out clean and clear on the other side during testing. Huge fan of the flip-to-mute mic and the cushions as they don't heat up the ears (like some do after extended gameplay).

      It's not a top of the line headset by any means but is a tremendous value at current prices ($99.95 at time of writing)! I'd say perfect for your casual/kid gamer.

    • Flimsy plastic band

      I had no problem with these headphones until the plastic adjustable band snapped on me when sliding them over my head. I am very gentle with my electronics and these just failed in a comically strange way. My window for returning them is up and now I’m out $150 (on sale now for $99 but I’m not buying these again). I have been very gentle with these since I don’t normally shell out money for headphones. These were my first nice pair and they even had a drawer in my entertainment console for them. I’m beyond annoyed at how these broke. Guess I’ll have to buy some epoxy and hope I can repair them.

    • Bought for my 13 year old

      I've always like turtle beach headsets. I bought this for my 13 year old son for his Xbox. It has pretty good sound but it's definitely built cheap. My son had it one his head and our 1 year old grabbed it and snapped the earmuff right off. He only had it a couple weeks. For now we have it duck taped on until I buy him a new headset. I think I'll go with a different brand next time. This is his 3rd or 4th Turtle beach

    • Excellent headset but..

      Long time ago when Xbox 360 first came out, I also bought a pair of turtle beach headsets after hearing they were one of the best headsets you could own in terms of sound, comfort, and quality and they weren't kidding, I loved them and now years later being a PC Gamer I bought this pair because wanted to re-live my Xbox 360 days and while the headset worked great, it was specifically designed for Xbox and not PC which meant I couldn't have a custom sound. That may not be a big deal to some people but I like to customize my sound because without it, the headset to me sounded like a cheap pair of headphones.

      Pros, Likes, and Features
      *Comfortable on the head, works well for my 5 year old daughter and wife both
      *Light enough to wear for hours on end playing

      Cons, Dislikes
      *No real concerns
      *Headset was a little tight at first but putting it where it would stretch out with some books between the earpieces when not using them it started stretching out a little and was less tight making them much more comfortable to wear

    • Fragile

      The quality of the headphones is phenomenal. The audio was great, the microphone never had any issues, and the compatibility with multiple systems was everything I could have asked for in a headset. I did have to contact customer support because the instructions provided for setup didn't work for my computer, but they were friendly and able to get me all sorted out.

      That said, the picture speaks for itself. I used the headset daily, but after about 2 months they just snapped. Out of the warranty period of course, so if you do buy these, add on the extended warranty.

    • Good product

      This item worked just as needed and we love it. But it came like four days later than it said it would. Which was two days after the xbox ones and the monitor so we had no sound for two days. Which was something I didn't want to happen and I made sure the order dates were in order. I was supposed to get a refund for it because if the delivery guarantee but I don't want to return it.

    • Good headset just very tight at first

      I love this headset, but honestly I hated it at first. The sound quality is great, I love that all audio settings are on the headset itself so I don’t have to go into party chat settings on my Xbox, setting it up was simple and straightforward. My only issue was how tight it was out of the box. I don’t have an overly large head either, I’m a woman and I have what I would consider an average size head for a woman. But this headset would give me migraines with how tight it was, and hours long gaming sessions were a no go. I ended up starting to leave the headset propped on my Xbox series x like the console was wearing them to stretch it out overnight and after about 3 days I got it to a comfortable grip on my head. Other than that issue (which is no longer an issue) this headset is well worth the money

    • Not for Call of Duty MW2 on xbox.

      There is a known bug on COD MW2 that mutes everyone in the lobby. I tried TB's work around but it didn't help. If you power them off on every new lobby sometimes they work one game. To make it worst the power button is recessed so its not easy to turn off and on between games. Even using "x" for "unmute all" doesn't help. I'm on the current firmware.

      Otherwise it's fine for the money, just not really comfortable on the ears.

      I'll probably invest in something else and call this a waste.

      EDIT: 4/21

      Tested some more and found out they cause problems with adding attachments to insured weapon in DMX (I know it seems crazy). I booted up without headset and could add attachments, with headset I would be booted back to deploy menu. Booting up without headset and later adding would cause DMZ to crash multiple times.

      Changing back to old headset fixed all problems.

    • Mic mutes other players, can’t unmute.

      I use this on Xbox One. Sound quality through the headset is great and it is comfortable. My biggest problem is that it mutes other players and you are unable to unmute them. It mutes my own friends so that I have no communication with them. They can be on Xbox or PC and it doesn’t matter. Turn headset off and you can hear them through the tv, turn it on and you might hear one more person but now another is muted. Very obnoxious. It came out of the box like this.
