Quotes from the Reviews - What People Say about:

Adapter

Adapter:
"Too start, I was worried we would have to get some other adapter or cord before using these, but I was really impressed with the fact this set has the Headset, the Amplifier AND all the attachments and cords cables needed to plug and play in an Xbox 360."
_
"The only complaint I have is that the adapter for an xbox controller makes it stick out too far and I'm afraid I'm going to damage the plug."
_
"Regarding the common question of how to get sound to the device:Here's Mike's original post (located here, if you want to mark helpful: Hdmi Cable and Adapter for Xbox 360 )on how to do get around the problem:The cable that came with my xbox would block the hdmi port when plugged in, so I couldn't plug both an hdmi cable and digital audio in at the same time (my receiver doesn't have hdmi)."
_
"The only negative that I can say is that you need a small adapter to connect the headset into an XBOX360 controller."
_
"Your experience may differ, and you may not need any additional adapters, but I have no idea how good or bad these are, because the company that sells them (Tek N Motion) is AWOL in the service department."
_
"I even purchased the adapter that was recommended at the time of this purchase, and it was worthless a well."
_
"No complaints other that the adapter to the xbox controller didnt work correctly."
_
"It works well with the XBOX, and there are enough adapters to fit his set up."
_
"I recommend this, but just FYI: in order for this headset to work with an HDMI TV and XBOX 360, you MUST buy the Gen RCA Adapter Cable Gen RCA Audio Cable Adapter for XBOX 360 + Slim that is recommended with it."
_
"I also use this headset on my iMac and it works perfectly (although you need a USB audio adapter sound card to use the mic because most Macs (including iMacs) only have a line-in port, not a mic-in port)."

Audio

Audio:
"the downside is for ps3 you'll have to connect its audio to a Scart or AV setup of some sort and you could get a separate usb mic for chating."
_
"This is great with audio but has terrible cords I got it on new years eve and the wires or cords to it are super weak it is not worth the money for cheap weak cords they started breaking a week after I got them."
_
"I particularly like using it with our PC to watch shows and for voice chat, and it provides crisp, clear audio without drowning out ambient noise completely."
_
"They have amazing audio but bad voice......to many wires as well."
_
"What it does come with: RCA audio with pass throughs (so you could put somethings else on your audio out as well) that combines into a single line male that goes into the amp."
_
"I recommend this, but just FYI: in order for this headset to work with an HDMI TV and XBOX 360, you MUST buy the Gen RCA Adapter Cable Gen RCA Audio Cable Adapter for XBOX 360 + Slim that is recommended with it."
_
"It's really easy to set up if you have an audio out on your tv or if you're using the a v cables."

Beach

Beach:
"Such a waste of time but it was my fault for being cheap and not just buying Turtle Beaches again."
_
"I was considering a more expensive set, but a common problem I saw about them (this other set, ok they were Turtle Beach X12s) was that the microphone was overly sensitive, and that it would continually transmit on xbox live (which is otherwise not adjustable)."
_
"In my opinion, they are very close to, if not as good as, the Turtle Beach X11 headset, which I used for about a year until the cord broke and had to get a replacement."
_
"I formerly owned Turtle Beach X31's (until they broke! )"
_
"The sound quality is just as good, if not better than the Turtle beaches, and the mic works well and he can be heard clearly."
_
"This headset is a great alternative to turtle beach."
_
"I bought this headset because it was cheep and i needed one for my xbox but anyway this headset is great it is half the price of turtle beaches and probably beats them the build quality is good and it has amazing bass the only down side is thees a lot of cords but i think it worth it for the price."
_
"At less than half the price of a comparable Turtle Beach headset, it is good value for the money."
_
"It didn't cost very much (definitely cheaper than headsets such as Turtle Beach, which are way out of my budget), and I'm really happy with the quality of sound, both sending and receiving."

Cable

Cable:
"Too start, I was worried we would have to get some other adapter or cord before using these, but I was really impressed with the fact this set has the Headset, the Amplifier AND all the attachments and cords cables needed to plug and play in an Xbox 360."
_
"I've had two of these break with light use (i. e. cables tucked out of range to be damaged, headset handled gently); neither one lasted longer than 6 months before it stopped working."
_
"Some of our other headsets have had cord issues and sound control problems that have cut into their durability, but that has never been an issue here."

"Many cables and still have not been able to use."
_
"It is a good headset, but there are a lot of cables that get in the way and can be a hassle."
_
"Finally I had to wrap thw cord around the controler just to be able to play online with friends."
_
"An male female cable extension, pretty long, maybe 9 ft, that plugs into the amp and you then plug the audio from the headset into."
_
"Easy fix to switch the RCA cables to red on white and white on red."
_
"I recommend this, but just FYI: in order for this headset to work with an HDMI TV and XBOX 360, you MUST buy the Gen RCA Adapter Cable Gen RCA Audio Cable Adapter for XBOX 360 + Slim that is recommended with it."

Comfortable

Comfortable:
"Great price, and came with all the necessary parts to get it hooked up (i use a vga kit with my 360, so that might make it easier for me).Build quality seems pretty good for a $30 headset, roughly on par with the x11.Cons: My biggest complaint would have to be the comfort."
_
"The ear piece is comfortable, but the portion that goes over your head can get uncomfortable after a bit of use."
_
"And sniper rounds that landed way to close to comfort scared the living stuff out of me in MOH."
_
"The cups are still good (and comfortable), just the shiny black covering starts to peel off."
_
"My son reports this headset is as comfortable as pretty much any over the ear headphones like this."
_
"The headphones are of great quality, feeling comfortable enough to wear for hours of gaming with clear, understandable sound."
_
"For the price, sound quality, and comfort, this is still a very decent purchase."
_
"However, They work very well and have a clear sound and are comfortable."
