Quotes from the Reviews - What People Say about:

Audio

Audio:
"Wasn't really happy with the audio, comfort and the already mentioned bulky controller."
_
"Typically I don't use the SB1095's big volume knob.2.0 music has the bass now( bass management is essential for the PC and is only availalbe if..the sound card utility support it ) .END da bomb**********Two good reasons:1...By keeping the rollers at 50 % , the PC audio system won't be able to....over drive the inputs, so, no distortion.2...Keeping the Master Volume Knob at the 3 0'clock position( approx."
_
"As other reviewers have noted, the construction of the headphones isn't durable, and while they seem to have good audio, they don't seem durable enough to justify the investment, if they were working."
_
"While the headphones sounded good when I tested them out with 5.1 surround audio from a Blu-ray, the fact that they were already broken when they were brand new doesn't speak well for the quality of this headset."
_
"I'd really like to give this product a great review as a gaming headset with amazing audio, 8 speakers at this price should be amazing, unfortunately..."
_
"Overall, although the complaints are minor, the combination of these complaints, the price of the headset, and the lackluster audio (relatively weak bass and narrow response) makes this a disappointment."
_
"For the first 4 months it was a good headset with great audio quality."
_
"While overall the functionality and audio mic works wonderfully, that one short coming has made me avoid headsets of this type."
_
"they were nice for the first 2 months though, audio is good."
_
"After this experience I've found out it's better to go with stereo headsets and use simulated 5.1 or 7.1 sound; they're lighter and have less chances of going wrong, and it sounds just as good (this obviously depends on your intended audio use)."
_
"Pros: Great audio, nice buffer, nice controlsCons: Pressure is pretty high against your head, poor design or choice of materials (take your pick) for ear cup mounted joint - VERY prone to breakage."

Beach

Beach:
"So for the above stated reasons I cannot, in good conscience, recommend a Turtle Beach product."
_
"I will NEVER buy turtle beach again because it is the most frustrating waste of time and money I have ever dealt with for computer gear and possibly in general."
_
"UPDATE:I received the second pair of Turtle Beach Z6A and they broke after two weeks!"
_
"these headphones are poorly made, I strongly advise no one to buy Turtle Beach headphones they are junk!"
_
"Bought this headset 2 months ago, and with other experiences with 2 other turtle beach headsets, I babied this headset and it still broke."
_
"I found that the wiring itself was faulty and sent it back to Turtle Beach to have them fix it."
_
"Luckily, Turtle Beach's RMA process is fairly painless and I had them back within a week and a half."
_
"my son is a fanatic video gamer, he asked me for headset because turtle beach is a good branch and have a nice reputation."
_
"I'd recommend it to any pc gamer however I have made the jump from turtle beach to corsair's vengance series (great wireless if you have usb 3.0) but and overall nice and well put together headset."
_
"I will NEVER EVER buy another Turtle Beach product again,nor will i ever recommend there products 2 ANY1."
_
"First one broke and I thought no big deal, was able to send it back for warranty replacement with no problems whatsoever from Turtle Beach."

Cable

Cable:
"My brother also bought a version of these headphones and his broke at the cord."
_
"I was worried the cord would come up short but it was just long enough to avoid having to reposition everything."
_
"Reaction from wiggling the cord tells me that yep, it's another wiring problem right where the cord meets the volume control box."
_
"My only complaint is that the length of cable is too short for my needs."
_
"Pros:Extremely comfortable for hoursAmazing customer SupportGreat sound qualityCons:Not reliable (approximate 4 month lifespan)Short cable from headset to amplifierI have enjoyed my Z6a for the past year."
_
"Good sound quality and strong cables."
_
"I should have put in good money for a headset with nylon cables like I have now."
_
"one of the cables did not work when i got this headset but when i got the cable fixed it had good sound quality"
_
"I was very happy the cord was long enough to reach the back of the computer since I play off my big screen TV with the computer along side the TV and me on the couch."
_
"One thing I would recommend to Turtle Beach is to offer and 'Extension' cord that could connect the jacks between the headset and volume control (they wisely built in a 'quick disconnect jack between the two)."

Comfortable

Comfortable:
"Its relatively comfortable to wear and the sound is good but not great."
_
"Wasn't really happy with the audio, comfort and the already mentioned bulky controller."
_
"The second problem is that the headset is rather heavy but even with the weight it was still comfortable to wear until it broke."
_
"So, I assume it's not as good as the Z6A and it's not as appealing in style nor does it look as comfortable as the Z6A and I asked him if it has a 1 year warranty how come they were inclined to offer me refurbished Z6A and not a new one?"
_
"The worst feature of these headset is it's lack of comfort."
_
"Wearing comfort was ridiculous with the HPA2s you could wear them for days on end and never notice them, these are always crimping down, scrunching at your ears and just being noticeable."
_
"When i bought these headphones, they sounded amazing, and very comfortable."
_
"easy self explanatory headset and very comfortable."
_
"Pros: The headset is very comfortable all around, the mic is easily accessible & easy to move around to your liking."
_
"If the cheap ones had the same cushions style on the earphones they'd be just as comfortable as well."
_
"PROS: comfortable- They sit very nicely on your head, a little heavier then I normally would use but the soft padding makes up for that."

Connection

Connection:
"But atop all of these, pulling the headphones open one day the connecting structure cracked and broke."
_
"The piece connecting the strap to the earcups is a flimsy piece of garbage."
_
"Like some other reviews I read, around the ear pieces connecting to the top of the headset is where this problem will occur."
_
"My only complaint is that there is a several prong connection for the surround sound aspect, and to get this cord any longer, you have to purchase extensions separately."
_
"There is some connection problem where the wire enters the speaker."
_
"Has great sound when it is working, the sound goes off and on when the amplifier is moved, maybe bad connection, I see in the reviews other people have had similar problems;also do not like the external adjustments on the amplifier, too easy to accidently change settings."
_
"You can try to manipulate the wire and it sounds great for a second, and then the wire loses the connection again and it ding and hisses and sound awful."
_
"The setup was super easy with no software to install, just a few connections to my 5:1 sound card."
_
"It folds up easily and the fancy SoundBlaster headset I had with the detachable mic failed at that connection)Comfort = 9 (design keeps ears cool; I'm not really sure a 10 exists)Pro's - SOUND!"

Control

Control:
"The only problem is it's clunky and the control box on the wire seems to be in the way."
_
"The worst part about this model, by far, is the cheaper-feeling control box and short cable length."
_
"The volume meter on the control box is not in an easily accessible spot!"
_
"Reaction from wiggling the cord tells me that yep, it's another wiring problem right where the cord meets the volume control box."
_
"Another problem I had was that the cord from the headset to the volume control was way too short, so the weight of that volume control was always hanging off the left side of the headset."
_
"The control panel is handy and easy to use, and the sound is outright fabulous."
_
"These have some of the best controls I've had on a headset."
_
"From the MOMENT I bought them, the connector above the volume controls has been prone to easily disconnecting, no matter how gently I wear this headset."
_
"Great sound, but I get a crackling noise at the control box, it must be a loose wire, if I have time I will send it back."
_
"Doom3 uses.....5.1 PCM game audio and running Doom3 at 1648 does give better performance......However, everything else always runs just fine at 2496 .3....SB1095 in Creative Control Panel is now set to use Full Speed ."

Design

Design:
"the volume controller box got faulty after 1 year, bad design and using to thin cables in the box."
_
"Just terrible design."
_
"I don't know if it was just a design oversight or trying to cut some corners with the actual materials used in the construction, but the adjustable part of the headband is made of very flimsy plastic."
_
"never buying from turtle beach ever again, buy a sturdy headset, these ones are terrible design."
_
"Unfortunately, the physical design has a major flaw and breaks right above where the earcups connect to the headband."
_
"If I had a large head I would have expected it but when I looked where it broke there was a weakness due to poor design as there was very little plastic in an area that has the most amount of stress due to it being near the pivot."
_
"I can appreciate a lot of things about the design of these headphones other than the bulky in-line controller."
_
"The mic has a better design, as well as the top band."
_
"Pros: Great audio, nice buffer, nice controlsCons: Pressure is pretty high against your head, poor design or choice of materials (take your pick) for ear cup mounted joint - VERY prone to breakage."
_
"*****************************************************************************************************Please read Great Headset, When Not Broken Great Sounding Headphones TERRIBLE Design Flaw review."

_
"Not heavy to me, don't press on my head or ears or feel uncomfortable even six hours into a gaming session."

Heavy

Heavy:
"These cans require a heavy chain of ridiculous power adapters and lousy USB sound card plug in."
_
"The second problem is that the headset is rather heavy but even with the weight it was still comfortable to wear until it broke."
_
"It is a heavy headset so the fact that it is broken doesn't help securing it on my head any easier."
_
"This item broke after a few months of heavy use."
_
"The amount of speakers caused them to be on the heavy side which made them hard to wear for long periods of time, but that doesn't matter because they'll slide off when the plastic gives up."
_
"Not that this part matters, but they're overly heavy and very uncomfortable."
_
"The second problem is that the headset is rather heavy but even with the weight it was still comfortable to wear until it broke."
_
"Headphones that heavy should comfortably rest on your head not squeeze it tight."
_
"Pros- Decent sound and micCons- Fairly heavy to wear- Poor placement of the amplifier- The plastic above the ears snapped while taking the headset offI rarely use my headset and I've had it only 4-5 months."

"Was a great headset, a little heavy and uncomfortable but great sound."

Level

Level:
"Nevertheless, they truly fail on multiple levels."
_
"As for the sound quality (I have a Creative SupremeFX X-Fi 8-channel sound card) may sound good at low level, but as soon as you rise up the level, the sound is really really crappy, like I never seen it before."
_
"While the other levels were good (not great like my others) the bass lacked the thump that I got from my Lifechat 3000."
_
"END***Z6A volume trick:I keep the Center and Rear speaker levels via Creative Console at a slighty greater level then the Front , to give a slight volume difference to help discern the Front , center and surround speakers."
_
"As for the sound quality (I have a Creative SupremeFX X-Fi 8-channel sound card) may sound good at low level, but as soon as you rise up the level, the sound is really really crappy, like I never seen it before."

Microphone

Microphone:
"Also my friends have complained of a constant buzzing when I use the microphone."
_
"But not even 3 months into having them the ear peace snapped off, as usual amazon replaced it right away but again very shortly after using them the sound quality became extremely crackly, it became almost annoying to try and listen to any music with them and then the mic just stopped working completely."
_
"Then today the mic totally died on me, very annoying."
_
"Sound quality is good but the platic core headband is fragile, both sides are broken in some months of use, and the mic stopped working."
_
"Eventually I figured out that this was due to a wiring problem where the connectors on the headset meet, when my mic went out completely and the static problem evolved into static that I could hear myself through the headset."
_
"It's now October and the mic has failed."
_
"Mic kinda sucks as well."
_
"The mic has a better design, as well as the top band."
_
"Purchase it for my brother and his gaming, according to him the sound is perfect the mic is nice and sensitive as it should but after a about a year the one side broke off do to plastic fatigue or basically cheap plastic."

Plastic

Plastic:

_
"Purchase it for my brother and his gaming, according to him the sound is perfect the mic is nice and sensitive as it should but after a about a year the one side broke off do to plastic fatigue or basically cheap plastic."
_
"I don't know if it was just a design oversight or trying to cut some corners with the actual materials used in the construction, but the adjustable part of the headband is made of very flimsy plastic."
_
"Bad rating because of really cheap plastic that broke after just one week using them and sending them back to US from EU is pain in the ass."
_
"Sound is great and mic also but because of cheap plastic i gave only 1 star and don't recommend them to anyone as they should use better materials or atleast change how they are assembled on lower bendable part."
_
"But it's important that you keep it from dropping since the connections between the phone and the head strap are plastic and brake quite easily."
_
"Would be nice if the manufacture would improve the plastic!"
_
"They sound good but their is something about the plastic used to make them that after a while the plastic gets brittle and breaks."
_
"I do not deny that the speakers, sound quality and mic are all great, but the plastic used everywhere else is not the same quality."

Warranty:
"The worst part is that the warranty is up at the beginning of 2014, and I'll no longer be able to send them back for replacement."

"So now here I sit, 30 days after my warranty expired, and my right ear cup has just broken off into my hand."
_
"They replaced them because they were under warranty, but they broke again."
_
"So basically, there warranty is worthless to me at this point and my product is broken."
_
"Couldn't figure out how to get serial number from their confusing website to submit warranty card."

"When my logitech mouse broke (which has a 3 year warranty), I had to do a quick diagnostic over the phone and I was actually sent another mouse to my address with no expense or trouble to me other than the phone call."
_
"TB was good in working with me to replace those headphones (that were in warranty) so a thumbs up for the company but the product is just not tough enough for me."
_
"Warranty was fairly easy process, but it doesn't change the fact that I'll end up breaking the next set as well, likely in the same spot."
_
"First one broke and I thought no big deal, was able to send it back for warranty replacement with no problems whatsoever from Turtle Beach."
_
"I bought them through a local store, not online and the warranty I got from the store made it really easy to replace them."

"Be warned, just because you get a 1 year warranty, doesn't mean you'll get a good replacement."
