HASH(0xb2a0ac0c) out of 5 stars Best Headset for Xbox One for under $50- Will need adapter with older controllers. Oct. 12 2015
By Jennifer - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
Note* You may or may not need the Xbox One headset adapter. This depends on your controller. If your controller has a normal 3.5mm jack on it (This controller was released in June 2015), then an adapter is not needed. If your controller does not have a 3.5 mm jack on it but a usb looking port, then you will need the adapter. There is an Official Xbox One adapter and a turtle beach version. Both adapters will work.

I ordered theses a week before they were released. My fourth Xbox One stereo headset had just broken. I really wish these had been released early. Love them. They are very comfortable. I have long gaming sessions and other headsets would hurt my ears but these don't. I have even started wearing them when using the YouTube app or watching TV while on the One. The volume is very good and loud. Before I had to have my volume up all the way to hear and be heard but now I would say I have it set at half way and people can hear me just fine. The mic is better then other headsets too. Before my mic would pick up everything, from tv volume, to someone knocking on my door. Even my ceiling fan and AC could be heard (and they are not that loud) but with this mic, this isn't a problem. It will pick up noises if they are very loud, like a tv with it's volume up past 30 but it does a good job trying to filter out bad noises.

For the quality and price of these headphones, they are very worth it.

HASH(0xb2a0ae34) out of 5 stars I admit I went the cheapo route first, but I'm sure glad I ended up with this high-quality Turtle Beach headset instead. Nov. 21 2015
By Elizabeth Mack - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
FINALLY, a headset that is super-comfortable and works great! I have tried several different headsets, and I'll admit I tried the cheapo way first, at the recommendation of fellow gamers. I bought a $12 headset, highly recommended, and the microphone was spotty and then just died. Bought a second set, different brand, for $15, and they died 40 days into it (Amazon and the third party sellers usually have a 30-day return, and my karma usually means that the item will die after 31+ days).

After asking around some more, and reading reviews, we finally decided to give these Turtle Beach ones a try, and WOW! We are thrilled with them. The sound quality on our end is superb, and everyone says they hear us perfectly. We love having a switch for the volume and a mute button, on a solid little rectangular panel along the cord.

In addition, the different colors are a nice feature, especially since we now have three headsets in the house because we liked them so much! Having the different colors means no fighting over which headset belongs to which kid. That brings me to another point: these are really solid and sturdy, and have held up wonderfully with kid-use and gaming.

Highly highly highly recommend this Turtle Beach headset. Goodness, talk about burying the lead. I should have started with the fact that these are made by the well-known and reliable Turtle Beach brand. Yes, I paid a bit more than I did for the $12 random ones that pooped out on us after a month, but it is well worth the extra money to know that you have a quality headset backed by Turtle Beach, a well-known company with high quality products. Thank you for reading this review. I sure hope it helps you make your purchase.

HASH(0xb2a0b0b4) out of 5 stars Almost Perfect Jan. 16 2016
By Victoria Nahley - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
My headset before was Turtle Beach. They were about $60 so I'm happy these were a bit cheaper. I also LOVE LOVE LOVE that the only wire plugs directly into the controller. I had to get a new headset because wires on my previous one got pulled and tangled and it was terrible. The reason I say almost perfect, instead of perfect is because I can't hear myself when I talk and it confuses me. I could hear myself with the previous ones so I am not used to it.

I know turtle beach is known for green but I wish I could get these in a different color, like blue or pink. The sound quality is great. I also like that I can take the microphone off. Great for when I'm snacking...

Very sturdy and durable. The audio quality is great. They fit a little snug if you wear glasses! Otherwise, all good! Use these during a marathon gaming session and I was comfortable throughout.

HASH(0xb2a0b600) out of 5 stars Big Improvement in Comfort and Sound Sept. 10 2015
By frankp93 - Published on Amazon.com
Vine Customer Review of Free Product
These are the most impressive Turtle Beach headphones I've used to date, and I've tried several with generally disappointing results.

The connecting band and slider mechanism on the Ear Force Recons is still a bit lightweight for me and I'd worry about an accidental twist or snapping something under heavy crushing. But the band tension, with the cups fully extended to fit my head, is just right for a solid fit that won't fatigue during extended wear and the cup cushions themselves feel extremely comfortable.

And that sealed-in fit improves the bass response, which has been a sore point for me with Turtle Beach phones. The high/medium range frequency response has always been good for the mix of sound effects, music, and straight voice a lot of games include. But other pairs I've tried haven't cut it when it comes to warm bottom end and I would never consider them for serious music listening.

In contrast, these sound surprisingly balanced. They're not going to beat my Teacs or Sennheisers for straight music production or serious detailed listening. But like a lot of phones and speakers, they have a character of their own and it's worth experimenting to see which phones best suit a particular game or listening experience - the differences can be dramatic.

Overall these feel like a step up in construction and sound quality.
