"they were really good until the binding on the side broke, now im in contact with turtle beach about warranty replacement."

Plastic

Plastic:

"The Turtle Beach Z2 Headset is a pile of crap, I have owned two of them in the past 4 months, The plastic is weak and cracks breaks easily, right above the swivel part where the ear piece attaches the small screw either falls out or just breaks where the threads are, both headsets had these exact same problems."
