Quotes from the Reviews - What People Say about:

Beach

Beach:
"The first reaction when I switched over from my other mic, a blue snowball, to this turtle beach set was yo, your mic is broken."
_
"First off, turtle beach is not customer friendly, now that we have that out of the way, on to the review.1."
_
"Turtle Beaches website is broken half the time so its impossible to get the warranty activated on them."
_
"I encourage you to send all your complaints and bitching to the turtle beach company and let them know as customers we shall not stand for this piece of crapola they are offering as cool!"
_
"I bought two of these and they both broke in the same spot where the ear piece meets the head band they are cheaply built hence the price im just about over the high priced turtle beach name and thinking of buying other brand with better built configuration they sad part is I emailed turtle beach and they don't offer parts to fix it well turtle beach has sealed their fate with me I would not waist your money on these cheap ill built garbage headsets"
_
"Also, Turtle Beach says your ears will stay comfortable up to hours of gaming, but mine hurt after about 1 1 2 hour."
_
"If I were you, I would go with The Turtle Beach Ear Force Z11 Gaming Headset, it is a new release in Turtle Beach PC Headsets, comfortable, and mic supports itself!"
_
"Turtle Beach will not admit to their error and stand behind this product."

Design

Design:
"It looks like a very poor design with very weak plastic at that point."
_
"Totally crappy design, especially for something that requires at least some moderate flexing to use properly."
_
"Terrible design flaw in this product!"
_
"In retrospect, it almost seems like it was designed with weak points that unnecessarily pivot around and are cheaply made."
_
"Can not recommend this very cheaply made and poorly designed item."
_
"The minute all of my internet chicks heard that my Ear Force Z1 PC Stereo Gaming Headset with Mic was broken due to inferior design and I told all of my sexy internet babes that I had replaced them with a cheaper headset which worked better, they all stopped chatting and playing games with me."
_
"It's such a poorly made design for a well known brand name, it's such a shame."
_
"The swivel design was a great idea, but poorly carried out."
_
"Great headset for those who can McGuyver their way out of any badly designed pigeonhole."
_
"They pretty much told me that I was S. O. L. because these pivots were designed not to fail under normal use."
_
"However, the microscopically thin piece of plastic that attaches the ear piece to the swivel attached to the band will break eventually; as an engineer I can say I'm fairly certain they were designed to do so, as this is a clear stress point, but was molded with a 90 degree angle with no radius and has a wall thickness around .06."

_
"I have had real expensive ones and the head set was great but the mic was junk."
_
"Mic quality is decent for the price, not much sound cancelling though so there will be some background noise picked up."

Plastic

Plastic:
"Real cheap plastic where is broke."
_
"A few months later, the other size breaks, but this time the plastic holding the speaker broke and can not be fixed without some serious surgery recrafting."
_
"The problem with this set is not the sound, it is the super-cheap plastic used in construction."
_
"It looks like a very poor design with very weak plastic at that point."
_
"Where the ear piece and the head band connect there is a plastic piece, this broke on every single head set I purchased in some cases in less than 3 months."
_
"However, a small piece of plastic broke off the earpiece, causing the earpiece to become skewed, and only held together by the wires inside."
_
"This piece of plastic is located in one of the areas receiving the greatest amount of stress whenever the headphones are used, and mine broke several weeks after I purchased them."
_
"Picked these up at the local store, they're great sound... but the plastic they're made of is extremely cheap and cracks."
