Quotes from the Reviews - What People Say about:

Adapter

Adapter:
"Does not work with my PC an the mic is not compatible had to spend 30 dollars more for a adapter"
_
"This apparently is a common problem with the px 22.it can be fixed by not completely plugging the adapter in all the way."
_
"Pros:+ Good Ear Cup size (Not round like Razer makes, but the actual shape of an ear like it should be - ovalish)+ Great Sound Quality (On par with Razer Kraken Pro)+ Cables are more than long enough+ Microphone boom moves easily and seems to keep its place rather wellCons:- Like all Turtle Beach items, this is made very cheaply, seems very easy it could break- Build quality is so bad on the adapter that I will lose sound in one of the sides if I plug the adapter 100% in tight- Microphone never worked properly despite setting everything right as directed (In Windows 10 - this issue may just apply to a small few)."
_
"Well this same foot caught on the cord connecting the adapter to the left speaker and mic."
_
"sounds great has all the adapters for x box, play station, i use it for PC gaming, its great all and all, except for comfort-ability."
_
"I love these headset but there deff not for the ps4 as its claim to be unless you buy this adapter kit to make the px22 to work with the ps4...but overall there a great headset"
_
"The sound quality is great, but I spent several weeks pulling the adapter and the plug in and out several times a day to get the mic to work before I sent them back."

Audio

Audio:
"So even though it is broken on both sides & only 1 side has audio it's still working great."
_
"On my win10 pc i get a audio driver error so the mic doesnt work."
_
"The biggest problem though, is that I regularly lose audio."
_
"My only problem is that some games need the audio settings messed with a bit to get them just right, whereas with my other speakers, the default settings are enough."
_
"Ordered these April of 2014, realistically speaking they broke after 6 months (mic broke off of connector had to be superglued on ) A month prior to that the audio started to die down, I have to wiggle cords around so both speakers play sound now, I payed 80 for the headset then ( ordered 2 more for a friend and his sister and theirs broke before mine ) I would normally say I am unimpressed but given the 80 dollar price tag I find the lack of quality most disturbing and infuriating."
_
"For the PS4 you have to connect the audio jack to the controller which to me is a downside, but other than that it is a very good headset."
_
"So even though it is broken on both sides & only 1 side has audio it's still working great."
_
"For example, when playing Left4Dead2, all of the audio levels are perfect except when my character speaks, I can barely hear him her."
_
"I've used this to live stream on TwitchTV several times and I liked the audio from my voice."
_
"It claims to be ps4 compatible, yet when I plug it into my ps4, the audio cuts out constantly for some bizarre reason."
_
"I do audio editing as well as gaming with these."

Beach

Beach:
"THE CONS-The main problem that everyone runs through with most Turtle Beach headphones, is that plastic build quality."
_
"I had never bought a Turtle Beach product and I would not recommend these."
_
"And on top of that, the contracted repair facility Turtle Beach uses was unavailable on Monday 11 23 at 3:30 pm for FedEx to deliver my unit to them."
_
"This headset has better wires compared to the turtle beach pLA, but THIS headset has its own set of rediculous problems, as you'll see in a large number in the negative reviews."
_
"This headset also doesn't suffer from a minor problem I had with my previous Turtle Beach headset, the P11: amp hiss."
_
"Not as comfortable as the slightly lower end Turtle Beaches I had."
_
"Turtle Beach is a great company."
_
"Pros:+ Good Ear Cup size (Not round like Razer makes, but the actual shape of an ear like it should be - ovalish)+ Great Sound Quality (On par with Razer Kraken Pro)+ Cables are more than long enough+ Microphone boom moves easily and seems to keep its place rather wellCons:- Like all Turtle Beach items, this is made very cheaply, seems very easy it could break- Build quality is so bad on the adapter that I will lose sound in one of the sides if I plug the adapter 100% in tight- Microphone never worked properly despite setting everything right as directed (In Windows 10 - this issue may just apply to a small few)."
_
"As usual, Turtle Beach provides the best bang-for-the-buck on the market."
_
"Turtle Beach does have great customer service and offered to replace if I sent back all components and packaging, but decided to go back to the X12s instead."
_
"Turtle Beach is the best option, and I like that I can use this on all my stuff."

Cable

Cable:
"I had to dock two stars because forgetting to ship it with an important cable is inexcusable, regardless of the headset's sound quality."
_
"I used is on ps3, Sound quality is very good, the cable wires are very long so you wont have a problem."
_
"If your using a 360 console you'll need another cable which isn't supplied... Over all they are a decent quality headset but a premium price considering its capabilities..."
_
"At second glance, the cables are everywhere, the bass is weak, and the material is cheap."
_
"Only drawbacks I have noticed are that the cord is pretty heavy and the in-line volume control portion is quite large."
_
"The in line controller has a thicker cable than most cables, so this won't tangle very easy like some headsets can."
_
"If you are okay with cables, and I certainly am, this headset is PERFECT."
_
"The cord is nice and long."
_
"Good headset until you lose the headphone to controller cord as they are impossible to find."
_
"The cord is too long as well and the little tuner box that's attached to it is just too much."
_
"Well this same foot caught on the cord connecting the adapter to the left speaker and mic."

Comfortable

Comfortable:
"Great sound, mic and very comfortable, after 11 months of use, they broke apart on me right where the extension piece met the frame."
_
"I will update this in case any problem occurs with this headsetEdit: Added sound quality since i had this for 3 days and I had fixed the issue of the uncomfortable ears by ripping some cheapy, but comfortable material earpads from a broken on-ear headset and put it inside the earpads (luckily the earpads from the turtle beach keeps it in place and it is unnoticeable because of the color)*Edit 2: So I have tried them for 2 weeks, I feel like I can get a better headset, sometimes when there are intense situations in a video game that I was playing, the bass doesn't go well with these headsets since it feels like the bass doesn't have a lot of room which gives me some discomfort because this not only affects the sound quality, but the dynamic chat boost would turn off making it harder to hear my teammates and it makes me want to put my game volume lower, if I do turn the bass lower, it helps a bit, but it doesn't sound right because I feel like the audio quality still acts up even with the bass lower."
_
"Very good headset amazing sound only downside is the airmuffs are not very comfortable."
_
"The only drawback, the earpieces aren't the most comfortable in the world."
_
"Great quality headset, previously I had the razer carcharias which sat squarely on my head and that set was very comfortable but unfortunately the wires wiggled loose over a year and the sound microphone stopped working."
_
"Unfortunately it's not as comfortable as it looked."
_
"Very comfortable nice fit however because I have a larger size head and once extended to fit my head the unit became weak and soon broke."
_
"It's comfortable and durable."
_
"Clear sound and very comfortable"
_
"The sound is wonderful and the headphones are comfortable."
_
"Owned two pairs of these because they were comfortable and they had good sound."

Connection

Connection:
"With this the headphone connection broke in less than 9 months."
_
"The main issue I have with it is how horrible the connections are."
_
"I was exited about this but MINE came defective : I was checking if any of my connections were wrong, they were perfect!"
_
"So let me get this straight, the headset itself is a 5 5, but there appears to be a problem when it is connected to the ps4."
_
"Then the cable connected to your controller has to be hooked into that nasty Red White AV cable."
_
"Bought the headset as an interim device until Sony releases a patch for the PS4 allowing bluetooth connectivity of another headset I have and I absolutely hate it."
_
"If you don't mind being connected to the console like that then these are great."
_
"Well this same foot caught on the cord connecting the adapter to the left speaker and mic."
_
"So the mic is connected to just the one computer and I can easily switch back and forth between machines for the audio."
_
"As long as you hold the connections just so, they sound nice."
_
"I used the usb digital connection and it works great! "

"For the PS4 you have to connect the audio jack to the controller which to me is a downside, but other than that it is a very good headset."
_
":D One thing though, i wish the wire that plugs into the t. v's headphone jack was longer, also it gets annoying when i have to get up to unplug the headphone wire from the t. v when ever i want to go back and forth between the t. v speakers and the headset (minus one star for my being lazy) my ps4 has to sit directly next to my t. v. but you can probably just get an extender to solve that issue, I guess anything else regarding specs and stuff you can read up for yourself, i'm just here to say that if you buy this, you wont be sorry, this might be the best thing i bought in 2014"
_
"P. S. What Turtle beach fails to mention is that you must use the connector on the back of your xbox to make this headset connect."
_
")Compatible with my phone via the 3.5mm jack by removing the headset with the amplifier."
_
"For the PS4 you have to connect the audio jack to the controller which to me is a downside, but other than that it is a very good headset."
_
"Had to unplug, and replug the adapter, as well as turn the jack around multiple times in a process that took several minutes before anyone could understand me."
_
"THESE HEADPHONES SOUND GREAT I'M USING THEM WITH MY XBOXONE THE SOUND AND BASE ARE VERY CLEAR PLUS IT COMES WITH AN EXTRA AUDIO JACK THAT YOU CAN PLUG INTO YOUR PHONE SO YOU CAN TALK ON YOUR PHONE AT THE SAME TIME AS YOUR PLAYING A GAME WITHOUT INTERUPTING YOUR GAME OR TV SHOW."

"Love the line in jack on the headset."

_
"This is a pretty good headset, but it's not my favourite for a few reasons (though I do still recommend it).Pros: Good Mic (even while whispering voice is very clear), the position of the mic is completely adjustable (you are able to speak at your normal volume and have it far enough away from your mouth that you are able to drink without hitting the mic), Bass and Treble control is awesome, Long cord (good for use on console and desktop pc)Cons: Can get uncomfortable after an hour or so of use (I have a small head, so that may be why?"
_
"I only use my headphones on pc, and the treble and bass settings don't work for pc and are only compatible with a console."
_
"You have to run one cable to controller, USB to cable the console, a nasty looking Red White AV cable to your TV's audio out."
_
"Set up literally took 5 mins although the programming part on console was challenging."
_
"If you don't mind being connected to the console like that then these are great."
_
").Looks like this headset is more for console than PC, product might be good, but software supporting it is completely trash."

Control

Control:
"Very disappointed in amazons quality control, don't understand why they would carry such a poor product unless they intended to rip people off."
_
"I hate inline control boxes myself."
_
"Lastly, the clip on the back of the control box is very disappointing."
_
"Everything about these are great except for the control box is junk."
_
"The one draw back; being a wired headset you can easily brush the volume controls against something and either go def or fail at a game because of the distraction."
_
"The amplifier and therefore all the controls that the headset features are not compatible with the PS4 without the purchase of an additional upgrade kit for $35."
_
"Pros- Great sound quality- Decent construction that is lightweight- Separate volume controls- Total around-the-ear design sits feels nice- You won't deafen your friends when you adjust the mic boom."
_
"One of the things I like best of this product is the control provided."
_
"I especially enjoy that you can control the level of monitoring you hear of your own voice from the microphone."
_
"I love the sound control for pc."
_
"Yes sounds good with music too, The control panel is nice and handy as you can adjust your volume without hitting the wrong key on the keyboard."

_
"For the PS4 you have to connect the audio jack to the controller which to me is a downside, but other than that it is a very good headset."
_
"And i dont go easy on headsets and controller as well as my 3 year old and 9 month old love to get ahold of them."
_
"For console gaming, make sure to try different controllers if you have problems using your headset."
_
"It does not work well with wired controller whenevbre ya speak with a wired a staticy dog whistle ringing noise can be heard if that's the case ya need to buy the small audio box ...sadly that does not come with the headset."
_
"the head set is of amazing quality the only down side is that you can't use your stereo controller with ps4 (well you apparently can but its more of a hassle then just plugging it into your controller."
_
"I knew it was wired when I ordered it, but I expected to be able to just plug the headset into the controller like the ones that come with the xbox360 or other wired headsets I've bought."
_
"Good headset until you lose the headphone to controller cord as they are impossible to find."
_
"Game sound comes through the controller as well as chat sound."
_
"For the PS4 you have to connect the audio jack to the controller which to me is a downside, but other than that it is a very good headset."
_
"It is supposed to muffle the game background if like lets say in call of duty someone blows up a car but at the same time someone was trying to tell you something you wouldn't even hear what they said because of the explosion of the vehicle the way I found to fix this is to turn down the volume of the actual game because even on the settings for the mic there is supposed to be one for your mic volume which works one for the others playing with a mic volume and one that is pretty much acting as a master volume that controllers all of them including the game when it is only supposed to be specifically game volume not master volume."

Cord

Cord:
"It gets dam annoying having to plug in so many cords to use the mic!"
_
"Ridiculous amount of heavy cords."
_
"The cords can be a little annoying, but I expected that."
_
"I'm able to have it tucked away behind my desk & out of the way (can't tell you how many headsets I ruined by running over the cords too much with my chair!"
_
"It can be a bit of a hassle using cords needed to connect to other devices."
_
"My only real complaint of the headset is the INSANE cord(which is also very nice at the same time), this thing is LONG, and with me using it on my PC, its much longer than I need, so I need to find a new way to route it so that its out of the way."
_

_
"However the cords are very long (a blessing and a curse) you can sit a good distance from your gaming device, but the cords tangle easily."
_
"Really nice and removes all the cords, creating a semi-wireless headset if you carry your controller with you to, say, the kitchen to grab a drink."

Crack

Crack:
"I've had 2 pair of these and both have cracked and broken in the same areas in a very short period of time."
_
"The headset works fine for around 2-3 months then starts to crack on the sides and eventually broke on both sides."
_
"Both sides of the earbands cracked and broke free after 6 months of light use."
_
"I had mine and they were great but they cracked on the side and it finally broke off."
_
"The main super big problem is the headsets crack just above the ears- this is ridiculous- we have a bunch of other headsets going to just 6 dollars a pair all the way up and none of them crack like that."
_
"(No cracks, screech complaints on Xbox LIVE!"
_
"The other side has stress cracks as well."
_
"I do not, but they cracked and broke anyway after just a few months."
_
"I had mine and they were great but they cracked on the side and it finally broke off."

Design

Design:
"Terrible product, and its not as it shown(design), ears hurt in 30 minutes, also doesnot breath at all."
_
"This headset sounds great and works great but either the design or the plastic near the earmuffs is extremely weak and easy to break."
_
"I could go on with the several frustrations I have with these, but it wouldn't be fair to Turtle Beach because I believe that some of the problem falls on the poor design of Xbox One with respect to how headsets are configured to work with the system."
_
"Onto the headphones themselves, its the flimsy plastic design that is familiar from turtle beach."
_
"Pros- Great sound quality- Decent construction that is lightweight- Separate volume controls- Total around-the-ear design sits feels nice- You won't deafen your friends when you adjust the mic boom."
_
"If you're a PC user, I would recommend going with another TB design that is specifically for PC, or go for another company."
_
"This headset sounds great and works great but either the design or the plastic near the earmuffs is extremely weak and easy to break."
_
"Pros:Very Durable - Great design structure and has survived accidental falls while maintaining its new look and quality."
_

_
"Comfortable, durable, high quality, fairly priced."

Gaming

Gaming:
"Very cheap parts and horrible for gaming."
_
"but for example when music ends or you stop gaming and still have headset on, you hear terrible hisssing sounds, it getting louder if you turn the volume up, it shouldn't happen to a 60$ headset"
_
"I wanted an integrated mic for gaming so I bought these--big mistake."
_
"I've only had the headset for a couple weeks so I can't comment on its durability but the sound is great and my gaming comrades complemented my voice quality."
_
"My issue is the earpieces can be uncomfortable if worn for extended amounts of gaming."
_
"Having said that, I find it very VERY hard to even spend more than $40 on a gaming headset under the impression they all sound like garbage...which 99% of the time they do."
_
"-The anti-sweat material does work, but for a good 2-3 hours of gaming I sweat, but that depends on the person IMO-The mic is clear and has good quality."
_
"best gaming headphones i have ever owned!"
_
"Other than that, they work well with multiple gaming communication programs such as Mumble and Ventrillo."
_
"Great gaming headphones"
_
"Good gaming headphones, but be sure your tv is compatible with the needed hook ups that the head set requires in order in work properly"

Heavy

Heavy:
"It's a bit bass heavy, but at this price level you're not looking for extraordinary sound, you're just looking to be able to hear both subtle and overt sounds reasonably well, which this headset does."
_
"Very quickly however, my friends began complaining of heavy distortion of my voice."
_
"Ridiculous amount of heavy cords."
_
"Only drawbacks I have noticed are that the cord is pretty heavy and the in-line volume control portion is quite large."
_
"A bit heavy and not as comfortable as some of the other models."
_
"to be honest the first unit that came to me had some issues with the microphone but after the replacement I have been enjoying it, the overall weight of the headset is not heavy and the comfort it gives though not superb is very good."
_
"Once set up on the Winamp Equalizer these work good from heavy music to soft easy listening stuff."
_
"Also, the control unit and cord that plugs into the PC together are pretty heavy."
_
"Only drawbacks I have noticed are that the cord is pretty heavy and the in-line volume control portion is quite large."
_
"the head set it self is heavy duty great for me i were them 95% of the time....the mic is stranded!"
_
"When I first tried them on my PS3 and listen to a few bass heavy songs I felt the lows were very strong and had good presence without drowning out the mids and highs, the mids are very crisp and sounded amazing, the highs were mostly clean, sounded stellar."

Listening

Listening:
"when listening to something it sounds fine(not great)."
_
"I unfortunately discovered this while I was listening to music and setting up the Usb drivers."
_
"When it comes to listening to music, these headphones are just plain horrible."
_
"Additionally it feels rather sturdy, fairly stylish (blue is a great color) and really comfortable compared to the Sony branded wireless headset (The Sony one always felt as if it would break if I was to lay down while listening to media on PS3 and what not).All in all PX22 is a great hedset and goes well with games."
_
"Once set up on the Winamp Equalizer these work good from heavy music to soft easy listening stuff."
_
"I mainly play call of duty and this definitely gives me an advantage when listening to footsteps and boost jumps."
_
"The headset is tuned for optimal sound while gaming, but offers great quality while listening to music, even genres which emphasize bass."
_
"The AUX in is really awesome, can enjoy listening to music during my gaming session!"

Loud

Loud:
"The problem was that the headset couldn't go very loud, even when I made sure it was maxed on the all the headset's dials (like the P-11 with the PC, only the voice volume dial really affects the master volume."
_
"Sound great, loud bass, mic works great too."
_
"I also fixed the issue with not hearing myself, it doesn't work when it is in the small mic portion of the slider which my teammates tells me that it is the best option to use because I am not too loud nor too quiet (my teammates told me that I sound too loud if I have the large mic function on), however, since you can't hear yourself at the small mic mode, you may talk really loud which may distract other people that may live with you, I would usually have to wear the headphones in like a one-ear style just to limit how loud my voice gets."
_
"Great to make sure I'm not talking too loud."
_
"Work like a dream plus i like how it plays my voice through the head set as well which prevents me from talking too loud."
_
"They are comfortable and nice the only gripe i have is that they are not loud enough on my PS4"

"No complaints on mic clarity from other players."
_
"The headset wasn't broken, both L and R speakers still worked along with the mic so I just taped it where it broked and problem fixed."
_
"The mic is great as well, the only downfall is that this headset takes some time to get used to if you're used to hearing every single sound in a game."

"However wearing them over a period of time they feel great and I even wear them when I'm not listening to music sometimes because they are so comfortable and shut out ambient noise (albeit not as well as other headphones can).The sound quality is terrific!"
_
"THE PROS-High quality sound, you'll notice it from explosions with games such as the Battlefield series-The ear cups for the material is very comfortable and does leak out noise, although if you want noise isolation, this isn't why I got the headphone for, I got it for gaming."
_
")*The aux cord that came with the headphones which connects to the amplifier is too small for meThe hearing yourself feature while chatting works, but too low to even notice (It is a con for me because I live with other people and because of how good the noise canceling is, I can't even hear myself, so you may talk too loud."
_
"Pros(that I personally enjoy):Over ear (I'm a fan of over-ear headphones)Adjustable bass and trebleAdjustable game and chatMute optionDoesn't pickup background noise (as well as my breathing)Comfortable on the top of the headNoise cancelingAble to hear in-game sounds (So you don't have to disturb other people that can be living with you as well as for a better gaming experience."
_
"The outside noise reduction was great."

Plastic

Plastic:
"The plastic broke on back of the ear cup where the mic boom mounts."
_
"The first one took about 8 months before the plastic broke, the second was just under two months of use when it broke."
_
"And now after less than four months of having the headset the left side BROKE and is now dangling because it is cheap plastic."
_
"They have been around the business long enough to know that making stressed parts out of plastic was bound to lead to a lot of broken products and upset customers, but they made the decision to put corporate profits over customer satisfaction, so they will no longer benefit from my consumer dollars."
_
"It is a rigid plastic clip that is very hard to use."
_
"In 2 months, the plastic around the left-side adjustment broke off."
_
"These headphones have good sound quality, however the plastic piece that connects the earphone to the band is extremely fragile, as mine just broke not even a year after purchase."
_
"This headset sounds great and works great but either the design or the plastic near the earmuffs is extremely weak and easy to break."
_
"function is great but the quality of the headset plastic and all that makes me feel like this is a $20 headset."
_
"Not a faulty headset built with cheap plastic"
_
"The build quality feels good, although as far as plastic headsets(most every headset you buy will be plastic, so not a hit on the company)go this is in the upper end of quality in my opinion, but could be better, the extension arms for the ear cups are VERY solid locking and have a very good detent on the slider, both audible and physical indications of a change."

Plug

Plug:
"It gets dam annoying having to plug in so many cords to use the mic!"
_
"Granted, this was the plug that normally is plugged into the mixer, instead of the computer itself, however, as there are no USB ports on mobile devices and the packaging claims that it works with them, it should not be any less durable than the other 3.5 mm Aux plug attached to the mixer."
_
"There was no impact, or any external damage, the plug simply did not come out with the rest of the cable."
_
"The problem I have with most computer headsets today is that they have a USB plug."
_
"You can actually set these up to do virtual 7.1 that actually processes sound correctly due to Turtle Beach's engineering that allows the circumaural feature of their premium headphones to replicate 7.1 well EVEN if they aren't engineered specifically for 7.1 *although that's a whole other topic I won't discuss here*------Mic------- Fair mic that has a very clear and controllable sound recording *not to harsh or too soft*------Ease of use------- Ehh it's a little confusing at first but basically plug the headphones to the Single opening on the amp then the USB and 3.5mm jack to ur speaker outlet."
_
"I knew it was wired when I ordered it, but I expected to be able to just plug the headset into the controller like the ones that come with the xbox360 or other wired headsets I've bought."
_
"It is great being able to plug in your phone and just pressing a switch to be able to take a call instead of having to take off your headset."
_
"It claims to be ps4 compatible, yet when I plug it into my ps4, the audio cuts out constantly for some bizarre reason."
_
"I just wanted some simple comfortable headsets that I could just plug in and use."
_
"We also have a Steel Series Siberia V2, which has much better bass, by the way (if you plug in the equalizer you can get this headset to have ALMOST as good a sound BUT NOT QUITE)."

Price

Price:
"Very cheap parts and horrible for gaming."
_
"The quality is decent, but it is just too flimsy to waste your money on."
_
"I would recommend that anyone ordering this headset check the price on the normal version as well as the Amazon frustration free packaging version."
_
"And now after less than four months of having the headset the left side BROKE and is now dangling because it is cheap plastic."
_
"For the price there is nothing wrong with these headphones."
_
"It's a bit bass heavy, but at this price level you're not looking for extraordinary sound, you're just looking to be able to hear both subtle and overt sounds reasonably well, which this headset does."
_
"For the price the quality was amazing and I definitely got a lot of use out of it."
_
"tech changes so quickly that I am happy the price was 'right'"

Quality

Quality:
"Do not misunderstand this is a great unit & good quality works great but if you try to adjust the length then be careful."
_
"Other Thoughts:Personally, I like other Turtle Beach products, I have the XLA for my Xbox 360 and a P12 for my PlayStation 4, those both work perfect, I purchased this PX22 in the hopes to replace my aging Razer Kraken Pro PC headset and to get the better mic quality offered by the PX22, I was very sad to see I was never able to get it working."
_
"The quality is decent, but it is just too flimsy to waste your money on."
_
"The microphone quality was good, but it was also very uncomfortable."
_
"I had to dock two stars because forgetting to ship it with an important cable is inexcusable, regardless of the headset's sound quality."
_
"The only problem is just the sound quality."
_
"The sound quality was good, the amplifier was great too."
_
"-The anti-sweat material does work, but for a good 2-3 hours of gaming I sweat, but that depends on the person IMO-The mic is clear and has good quality."
_
"But setting it up for the PC took about 5 minutesConclude~ Very good high quality headphone with mic, but I gave it a 4 star due to its build quality."
_
"The sound and voice quality are always amazing."
_
"very good quality."

Setting

Setting:
"My only problem is that some games need the audio settings messed with a bit to get them just right, whereas with my other speakers, the default settings are enough."
_
"Literally the only positive thing I can say is that it works decently on PC, after I had to go through the hassle of making a myriad of adjustments in my sound settings and having to plug it into the USB AND headphone jack at the same time."
_
"I like the ability to change the chat volume and game volume independently but it can get confusing in the settings."
_
"Setting up the amp for a desktop PC was incredibly frustrating."
_
"Am I setting it up wrong?"
_
"I only use my headphones on pc, and the treble and bass settings don't work for pc and are only compatible with a console."
_
"But setting it up for the PC took about 5 minutesConclude~ Very good high quality headphone with mic, but I gave it a 4 star due to its build quality."
_
"The mic works very well though, and the different setting styles come in handy."
_
"If you have multiple systems or like to be able to adjust a bunch of sound settings on the sound board thingy, these are the headphones for you."
_
"These things sound really good in winamp, max out the bass setting then play with the treble setting until it isn't too snappy, seems like there is a bit much treble over the bass but not bad."
_
"It's got a pretty nice amount of settings on the headband, which accompany even my over sized head."

Setup

Setup:
"I think the complaints about all the wires are overblown...setup is really simple, and all of the options allow this headset to be truly universal."
_
"Having music while gaming is something missing with the X41's due to it being inconvenient to setup, but with the PX22's it's a nice and easy setup assuming you stay within 4-5 feet of your music source."
_
"The main problem with this is that you have to change your setup every time you switch consoles."
_
")In other words, I pretty much wanted to buy a headset that is easy to setup, universal, wired and no need of buying extra adapters to make it work on the devices I needed this to work with."
_
"Pretty easy to set-up."
_
"I can hear my friends perfectly and during the setup you reduce the feedback through the setup process."
_
"Plus, it is really easy to setup with your console and it is inexpensive."

Simple

Simple:
"I think the complaints about all the wires are overblown...setup is really simple, and all of the options allow this headset to be truly universal."
_
"Its more annoying than a simple USB headset like I have with the G35, but its not that much of a mess."
_
"I own PS3 wireless headset (very nice but PS3 only), a cheap wireless headset (RCA connection with no mic) (adequate), Sony headphones (nice but simple headphones), Pioneer headphones (Junk), Logitech headset (Nice but heavier and PC only).As you can see, I have a number of headsets but none of them can be used for all my gaming needs."
_
"Simple hook up and they work GREAT! "
_
"I just wanted some simple comfortable headsets that I could just plug in and use."
_
"In the end I ended up getting some 25$ Etekcity headsets that were more simple, comfortable, and better looking."
_
"My Logitech H540 headphones (a very very simple $40-ish pair of headphones, but have never failed me) work just as good as this pair."
_
"OK setting it up for ps4 wasn't too difficult, harder than the simple USB of the p12 but no problem and produced the same level of sound if you do it right."

Size

Size:
"This is a small complaint however as these headphones are flawless."
_
"PC on the other hand I ran in to a few small hiccups, but they were not caused by the headset, just a driver issues caused by a malformed windows pre-installed driver(USBAudio."
_
"Extremely small and uncomfortable."
_
"This is a pretty good headset, but it's not my favourite for a few reasons (though I do still recommend it).Pros: Good Mic (even while whispering voice is very clear), the position of the mic is completely adjustable (you are able to speak at your normal volume and have it far enough away from your mouth that you are able to drink without hitting the mic), Bass and Treble control is awesome, Long cord (good for use on console and desktop pc)Cons: Can get uncomfortable after an hour or so of use (I have a small head, so that may be why?"
_
"The plastic where the headset adjusts the size on the band broke after normal use."
_
"Very comfortable nice fit however because I have a larger size head and once extended to fit my head the unit became weak and soon broke."
_
"Also if you have big ears the his headset is good, and or small ears like my friend."
_
"Pros:+ Good Ear Cup size (Not round like Razer makes, but the actual shape of an ear like it should be - ovalish)+ Great Sound Quality (On par with Razer Kraken Pro)+ Cables are more than long enough+ Microphone boom moves easily and seems to keep its place rather wellCons:- Like all Turtle Beach items, this is made very cheaply, seems very easy it could break- Build quality is so bad on the adapter that I will lose sound in one of the sides if I plug the adapter 100% in tight- Microphone never worked properly despite setting everything right as directed (In Windows 10 - this issue may just apply to a small few)."
_
"The over-ear size is pretty good in terms of diameter, but it's a little shallow, so my ears press flat against the hard speaker part."
_
"(Due to how low it is, the small mic on the slider of the amplifier is pretty much useless."

Sound

Sound:
"It sounds fine in the headphones but can be heard on the PC and makes it hard to understand."
_
"but for example when music ends or you stop gaming and still have headset on, you hear terrible hisssing sounds, it getting louder if you turn the volume up, it shouldn't happen to a 60$ headset"
_
"when listening to something it sounds fine(not great)."
_
"I had to dock two stars because forgetting to ship it with an important cable is inexcusable, regardless of the headset's sound quality."

_
"Very nice headset, sound is incredible!"
_
"The sound quality was good, the amplifier was great too."

Speaker

Speaker:
"A: To some extent, however, due to the way my ears are shaped, I can feel the pading outside the speaker of the headphones, and it feels like it will get uncomfortable on the ears after long use."
_
"Right speaker broke after a few months."
_
"The headset wasn't broken, both L and R speakers still worked along with the mic so I just taped it where it broked and problem fixed."
_
"Everything works nicely, except when you get it, if you can hear out of only one speaker, or your mic doesn't work, unmute it if you have to, or just twist the audio jack."
_
"It worked great, good sound quality from both mic and speakers and the input adapter I use to this day."
_
"Don't get me wrong -- the speaker and mic quality are wonderful."
_

Stereo

Stereo:
"the head set is of amazing quality the only down side is that you can't use your stereo controller with ps4 (well you apparently can but its more of a hassle then just plugging it into your controller."
_
"My Logitech G35 actually works fine on PS4 plugged into USB, but the sound quality of the G35 in stereo is not great."

_
"Directional sound is the best I've heard from a stereo headset."
_
"This headset has good stereo sound and allows you to talk to someone on the phone or skype while playing and the audio doesn't mix so the person on the phone can hear it."

_

"I spent a lot of time looking for a good mic'd set and this is it, was pissed about the AMP(Bass & Treble) but other than that it's comfortable, has a long lead which is always good."
_
"Crystal clear audio, great controls for bass and treble."
_
"The sound quality is excellent and the controls for bass and treble let you adjust music to your liking."

"The sound quality is so good and the bass and treble is fantastic .This is also compatible with PS4 but if you want the full great quality you should buy the ps4 headset upgrade kit for ps4"

USB

USB:
"Pros and Cons:Pros:Nice long wire to move about the roomComfortableAmazing audio mic qualityCool lookingCons:I kinda dislike that the Microphone audio goes though the USB rather then the Headset Audio Mic Jack as it may cause static once in a while depending on your computer."
_
"The solution... disable USB... that is a terrible answer."
_
"The problem I have with most computer headsets today is that they have a USB plug."
_
"Exceeded my expectations comfortable easy to set up only time a problem is when unplugging to go back to usb sound card seems to require a reboot."

"OK setting it up for ps4 wasn't too difficult, harder than the simple USB of the p12 but no problem and produced the same level of sound if you do it right."

"this is the first Gaming headset I have ever bought used but as far as Headsets Period this is the best One i have used outside of a Plantronics usb Headset"
_
"Was better than expected, no uncomfortable at all works great with my PS4, all I had to do was plug it straight into the USB because I was using the ,amplifier which works wonders, but if you do not want to use the amp you can plug it straight into the DS4, but I prefer using the amp cause using it is more bang for your buck...and yes the earmuffs do make your ears a little bit sweaty but it's not a deal-breaker for me...have no regrets with this purchase"

Video

Video:
"I will update this in case any problem occurs with this headsetEdit: Added sound quality since i had this for 3 days and I had fixed the issue of the uncomfortable ears by ripping some cheapy, but comfortable material earpads from a broken on-ear headset and put it inside the earpads (luckily the earpads from the turtle beach keeps it in place and it is unnoticeable because of the color)*Edit 2: So I have tried them for 2 weeks, I feel like I can get a better headset, sometimes when there are intense situations in a video game that I was playing, the bass doesn't go well with these headsets since it feels like the bass doesn't have a lot of room which gives me some discomfort because this not only affects the sound quality, but the dynamic chat boost would turn off making it harder to hear my teammates and it makes me want to put my game volume lower, if I do turn the bass lower, it helps a bit, but it doesn't sound right because I feel like the audio quality still acts up even with the bass lower."
_
"he plays video games and loves his gift."
_
"Voice quality is better than a phone, headset itself negates enough sound to enjoy games and video while still allowing user to hear outside sounds if they focus."

_
"I eventually found videos from other users that fixed my volume issues but I took a star off for confusing and lacking instructions."

"GREAT volume adjustments for TeamSpeak, game and phone - all separate!"
