The A40 TR is lightweight yet rugged and has premium materials for a pressure-free fit. The ear cushions have cloth for maximum comfort and synthetic leather for the best acoustic performance. A swappable boom microphone is a mic that focuses on your voice. It can be placed on either side of the A40 TR headset. You can personalize your headset with their patented magnetic Speaker Tag system, or purchase special editions or design your own using their online Speaker Tag Customizer. The mod kit ready has a padded headband, speaker tags, and synthetic leather noise-cancelling ear cushions. It was sold separately. Continuous compatibility is offered on all current ASTRO gaming products.
👤Why didn't you put a volume control on the mic to controller cable? In order to change my volume I have to open up settings and adjust chat and game volume inside the console. They want us to by the mic. They put the phone jack on the same side as the mic, on the back of the left ear, and the wire is rubbing on my neck. It's not acceptable for a 150 dollar headset. My audio quality is the same as my turtle beaches, and I have an echo issue when my friends are talking to me. I have to buy the same audio as Microsoft. Please don't waste your money on this purchase, I am so let down by it.
👤I have owned a pair of a40's for a couple of years now, but my first pair died after about 2 years of use, and the mic just stopped working. This will be my second pair. They work well for Call of Duty games because of the surround sound and clarity of sound. If you don't mind the price, I would recommend these. The first time I bought a pair of these, I also bought the Mixamp, which I don't think is necessary. I couldn't figure out what the point of the mixamp was because I couldn't tell if I plugged it in directly through the controller or if I connected through the optical cable. You might want to research it further, but I would say that the mixamp is a good one.
👤This headset is very large. The sound is clear and the highs and base are balanced. It has a good amount of comfort for a long time. You can swap out the ear muffs with new ones if you need to, which is top of the line. You can change the mic to be on the left or right side, and you can also change the headband and tags on the earmuffs. If the mic or ear muffs are damaged or the cord is cut, you can get new parts on the Astros website, which will make the headset good to go again. If you're looking for a headset that's reliable and cheap, go for this one.
👤Absolutely love the A40 model. The model felt a little big. No problem. These are even stronger and fit better. I have a problem with the inline mute cable because it doesn't have the volume control I had. The surround sound feature on the new A50s makes a good echo or metallic echo of your voice. If you try the normal sound mode, it sounds like the A40's. The activation code for Dolby digital is included in the a40s. I don't know if I can tell the difference without it. I guess that is a given since it is supposed to be surround sound with Dolby digital on through Xbox settings. It would be perfect if this included the volume sliders on the inline cable. It is a shame that it does not include that. The top band cushion might be a little bit wider after using them more. It's not noticeable most of the time, but on some days it feels like the cushion on my head is a bar. A simple adjustment fixes it.
The sound is ready to support spatial audio technologies. Turtle Beach's renowned high-sensitivity mic picks up your voice loud and clear to ensure your commands are always heard; plus, it flips up out of the way to hide when not in use and blends into the headset's design. The speakers are high-QUALITY. 40mm over- ear speakers produce crisp highs and thundering lows. The weight barrier is light. A lightweight headset design ensures complete comfort during those hours-long gaming sessions. There are premium early cushions. Synthetic leather-wrapped ear cushions have added comfort, improved bass response and better noise-isolation. The Recon 70 works with multiple platforms, including the Nintendo Switch, PC, and Mobile devices.
👤My son has a replacement headset. He's happy. He said it was better than his old one. My kid can't hear me tell him to take out the trash because they cancel noise well.
👤I bought this headset and it doesn't have a switch. You can change it to work other than that.
👤The microphone broke off the base after 3 months of use. We glue it. Turtle Beach was contacted. They wanted us to send them a photo. I told them that we glue the microphone back onto the base. The device needed to be replaced under warranty based on the photo. They wanted us to cut the cable on the headset and send them a photo to prove that we did so. They decided that the headset needed to be replaced but wanted us to go through the extra steps to prove that we did what they wanted. This isn't how you treat your customers. If they wanted the device back so they could do whatever they wanted with it, then they should have sent us a return label.
👤I wanted to use this headset. The audio was clear at first. After using it for 2 weeks, I'm no longer happy. It's fine with most games. When playing a game with a lot of audio and gunfire, the audio skips a lot. This is the only time the skipping happens. I can play some games without issues. If I'm in a heavy mission with a lot of noise, it's rough. Half of the in game noise has already been silenced. I don't know if I got a bad quality headset or a faulty one.
👤These headphones are very good. They don't have every gizmo that you want, but they have everything you need, including a cool flip-up mic, and they're cheap. There were no complaints.
👤They sound great, the mic picks up good, and the mute works. It feels like there is a heating element inside the headphones after they have been on your head for 15 minutes, and it becomes unbearable to wear continuously for over 30 minutes. I would love to have my money back if you only use these for short gaming sessions.
👤You have to change the Nintendo Switch default settings to make the microhone work.
👤I bought this on a budget to replace my headset. The Recon 70 is lighter and more comfortable, doesn't require separate charging (wired to controller) and the flip-to-mute mic works well. There are pros and cons. The sound is not as good as the PS Gold, and there is no chat volume control. If your friends' mic volume is low, you will not be able to hear them very well.
👤I was going to return the headset because I thought the mic wasn't compatible with the Nintendo Switch. You need to change your settings. To ensure that Voice chat is on, open the game, then settings, then audio, and check that it's 'open mic'. Press the X button to apply the changes. You can either power off or restart your switch. I had to find a video on YouTube to learn how to pair the box.
Support and first-class warranty. Leitner products have a 5-year full replacement warranty. That is 5 times the warranty of most competitors. The battery is covered by the warranty, so it will last. Leitner Headsets have a warranty. Their US-based support is ready to help with any questions or inquiries. The Arctis 9X can be used to connect to your PC via a wireless connection. You can use the 3.5mm male to 3.5mm male cable on your PC to connect your headset. This will allow you to hear audio, but not the microphone.
👤I am a huge fan of the steel series. I use steelseries for my PC equipment. The 9x is an expensive headset that I wouldn't have expected from steelseries, and I find some of its flaws. If you want to change your sound profiles, you have to plug them into a PC and tune them to a specific preset. It takes away from enjoying a game or a PC game if you are stuck with the preset on the headset. The microphone is very sensitive and clear. It does cut out background audio interference noise. It's a huge plus to be able to pair your device with your console so you can play a game on your phone and listen to music on your phone at the same time. The dial for mixing the audio is small and could be difficult to find. The Arctis Pro is the most comfortable headset one can buy in this category, but it is not the most comfortable headset one can purchase. While music streaming is not a strong point, taking in-game audio and playing music is fine, as a headset for the outside world is lackluster. Even with preset music bass and clarity isn't quite there. The soundstage is enormous compared to what the 9x has to offer, and the first party headset from Microsoft packs a lot more punch in the audio. I believe you have a winning headset if you can catch these on a sale under $100.
👤The Artis 9X feels good, the mic is good, and it's almost as good as my Sennheuser P37X wired headset. The P37X is an open cup design, which means you can still hear someone talking to you while you are wearing them, and the 9X is a closed design, which means you can't hear someone talking to you while you are wearing them. The Plus design has better clarity and bass. The Artis 9X are heavy in your hand, and I really like how they feel. I don't feel them on my head. The material for the ear cup cushion stays cool for extended periods of time, and is a sort of fabric that is moist. I have a big noggin and they fit quite comfortably with no fatigue, I haven't tried to pair them to my cell phone yet, but that is a neat feature, you could answer calls while you are gaming as well as mix Spotify/pandora or just music I'm looking forward to fooling with that eventually. They are exclusive to the Xbox consoles because they use custom internet to communicate with the console. If you want to use your headset on your PS5 or Xbox, you may want to look into the Artis 7 that uses a dongle.
👤The headphones were refurbished from Amazon. I had no sound in my ear. I tried to fix it myself. They were put into a computer to make sure the volume was balanced in both ears. In researching this issue, it appears that it is a known problem.

👤The first headset I have had full enjoyment with is the Xbox One. The controller's wired input broke, so I switched to a wireless headset. Everyone said this headset was pretty good, and I spent hours looking at reviews. I wanted the turtle beach stealth 600's, but decided to try these. I have had them for 2 weeks and I love them. To consumers who are interested in this headset, I recommend that you watch the videos on YouTube that show you the features of the headset, so that you can get one that is right for you. This one works well for me, but there are better headsets out there, and this one gives you a good bang for your buck. I have had this headset for a while. No issues with it at all! Make sure to move the adapter to a port on the PC. It is definitely something I would recommend.
👤There are updates at the bottom of the review. I was looking to replace an excellent Hyper X wired headset that I broke while plugged into my Xbox controller. Wanting to avoid this happening again, a wireless headset seemed like the obvious choice. I was interested in the Turtle Beach Stealth 700 since it works like an Xbox controller, but I wasn't ready to make a decision because of negative reviews and the price. A friend of mine has the Afterglow AG9 and he likes them, but he has had a couple of failures. There are a lot of user reviews of the AG9. I stumbled across the new wireless product. The consensus is that the LVL 50 is a great value. Most user reviews are very positive, but most of them are from people who received them for free. When you receive something for free, you are likely to be more positive, and I know I would be. The headphones in a box with no frills are what you would expect from the LVL 50 packaging. You get a 6ft microusb cord and a quick start guide. The headphones are made of plastic with fabric ear cups and a padded headband. Nothing flashy, except for the green wires running through the headband and the Xbox green in the ear cups. You wouldn't know what brand or model they were if you walked up to them. I don't think this is a bad thing. I don't think most people buying sub $100 headphones are interested in impressing their friends. The switch/knob labelling is very faint and hard to read, which is the one thing I don't like about the design. You will learn the buttons and switches quickly. You won't be throwing this headset in your suitcase for travel because they are not strong. They don't fold. Most low cost headphones have adjustments. The earpieces have limited pivot and rely on the plastic flex for fit detail. Ear pieces move. I find them very comfortable because I have a large head. The first session was about 5 hours and I never got hot or uncomfortable. These are as comfortable as my Hyper X was. The headband padding is the most important factor in this comfort. If you have a small head, I would only worry about fit. The fit and comfort design is clearly for low cost but done well so there is very little compromise. The stock images show a different material for the ear cups and head band than the ones that are on the internet. I've attached my pictures to the review. I just plugged the dongle into my console and turned on the headset. There are instructions, but they are not necessary. Listening sound quality is very subjective. The game/console/PC would have to make the surround effects. I can tell you from my initial use that it is fine for me. I play Red Dead Redemption 2, Far Cry 5, and Fallout 76 most of the time. All sound the same as my wired headset. I haven't used these for movies, but my guess is they'd be fine for this. It's probably not your best choice for music, but it would be okay. The gaming sound is above the price point. I don't think you would be disappointed. I did not have to repeat anything I said because the microphone sound quality is good. The flip up mute feature is something I like. The chat/game volume mix is one of the two volume knobs on the Xbox version. You can use these two knobs to tune the sound, but you have to play around to get it right. Every time you team up, you will likely need to adjust. The PS4 version does not have a mix knob. Support documentation and on line info is not currently available. There is no FAQ on the site about the LVL 50. The quick start guide has no information about functions or charging. I usually review the FAQ's before buying the headset. This is not possible in the case of the LVL 50. Durability is a word. I don't see these holding up to abuse and I wonder about long term use. I worry, but this is only speculation. They have a two year limited warranty, which gives me peace of mind. I am very pleased with the value of the LVL 50 wireless. There are better ones out there, but I can't imagine one better at this price point. I bought these from a local store. If you're considering buying these, you might want to check out the local store to see if they have them. I will follow up with updates as I use the LVL 50's more. After spending about 30 hours with the LVL 50, here are a few other details. The battery life is advertised. I played 14 hours over the last few days without any indication that the battery was low. I can't complain about the life because I wish there was a way to check the battery level. The microphone is hard to understand. I've played with different friends, some said I was clear and others said I was hard to understand. It seems to work better away from my mouth, but not sure of all the variables. It seems to be very sensitive and tries too hard to control extraneous noises. It seems that putting it further from my mouth makes this better. The two volume knobs on the Xbox version are a bit annoying. The earpiece on the right is supposed to be the overall volume and the earpiece on the left is supposed to control the game. You have to work both of them to get the correct sound even if you are not using chat. It can take a minute to get the sound balanced. It's too easy to move the knobs if you have it set. It is comforting for me. It's cheap and has good ear and head pieces that make me forget I'm wearing it. The comments about the microphone and volume knobs are nit-picky. I am very pleased. I mentioned in my initial review that I was replacing a broken Hyper X headset that I had found at the Xbox controller. I decided to get the Hyper X headset fixed since I could use it with the PC. I plugged it into my controller to see if I had damaged it. It worked just fine, but it doesn't sound like it's as good as thePDP LVL50. I had thought that the LVL 50 was a compromise over my wired set. I can attest that the battery life is as good as advertised. You can't check the level, but it does give you warnings when the battery dies. I've found that putting the microphone 3 inches away from your mouth and at about chin level gives the best performance. It picks up breathing when it's too close to the mouth. The mic is a weak point in this headset if the levels are adjusted correctly. I am changing my rating to 5 stars because of my experience and seeing that discounts are starting to show up. You can't go wrong. Two months of ownership and probably 200 hours or more of use, still very satisfied. The only annoyance was adjusting the two volume/mix knobs. To address this, I took a paint pen. I marked them once the knobs were adjusted. I have to make sure that I have them lined up. Even if I have to make a small adjustment, I have a good starting point. If this doesn't make sense, look at the last two pictures. This will be the last update. This review is too long. Sorry for that. Buy them. There was an update on 6/11/2018. OK. This update has nothing to do with the headset. The information on the website about the LVL 50 was limited in early March, so I wrote the support asking questions. On June 10, I received a response from the party. The content of the response was not helpful. I still love the headset and recommend it, but this sort of slow customer service makes me skeptical about how well it will be backed if I have an issue. They would have been better not to respond at all. There was an update on 1-20-20. It's still a pleasure to use, even 10 months later, and over 1000 hours of gaming have been done with this headset. It started to sound more frequent a month ago. Plugging and unplugging will clear it up. Sometimes cutting the headset off will clear it up. Plugging in the charge will help. Nothing will clear it up if you don't remove the charger. The headset is comfortable and has good sound quality. It's unbearable when it's beeping. The normal sound is interrupted by the beeping, which is like R2D2 screaming in your ear. The beeps are not always the same and I am sure they mean something specific, but with no support from the site, I have no idea. Your dog is barking in your direction. Is Timmy in a ditch? Is the barn on fire? Do you need to leave? You don't know what your dog means, and I don't know what these beeps mean, and it's driving me crazy. I'm going to contact them again and hope they don't take too long to respond. I will report back here what I find. This is at 5 stars for now.

👤We have a girl in the family that loves these. The Turtle Beach brand is already a fan of these. The sound quality? Excellent. The design? It was sleek. Is it a good idea to upgrade to the microphone? Outstanding. Her old headset has a clip on microphone that is attached to her flip up flip up headset. The fit? Finally a headset that fits her. She is small, so most of them slip and slide around, even at the smallest size, but these don't. The padding? Fantastic. She wears glasses that absorb the stems so they don't hit her head. The colors? So pretty! Headsets are typically gender neutral or a little more masculine, but these are light and bright, a nice change. The price? It's reasonable for the quality level. Turtle Beach is a definite winner. If you clickHelpful, it will help your decision.
👤I am not happy with this headset. The mic is too close to the speakers. Everyone in my call can hear it perfectly, but I can't have anything playing in my headset. Any volume that is over 40% is going into the mic. The issue is that the mic is too close to the speakers. The mic is far away from my mouth, so it doesn't pick up quieter responses. The mic and sound quality are good, but that is to be expected at this price. Sometimes it produces a crackling sound. It looks pretty.
👤I absolutely adore these! The difference between these and the cheap hand-me-down headset I had is crazy, especially since these aren't really expensive. They are marketed as glasses friendly. They are soft and can be adjusted. I wear them for several hours at a time and they don't hurt. I like that I can flip the mic up if I want to quiet myself down. I use them for both consoles and have never experienced any problems.
👤Love the color and the comfort of the buy. The new game chair looks great.
👤After two months, broke. These weren't manhandled. I am not sure if it was design or material issues. Trying other brands. These were expensive for only a couple of months. We put glue on them. Not sure if the glue will hold. The break was the same for everyone. I am trying to get a refund but it looks like it is not happening. It's really bad. They replaced the set after reaching out to customer service. Will watch the next one. Customer service was very attentive. Thanks!
👤I wanted to do an update and move it to a better rating. I still agree with everything I've said before. They stopped working after 3 months and I am very careful with my gaming set up because I am very particular. Sometimes they didn't work together and sometimes they didn't work at all. There was a small break in the connection area on the headset which I didn't think was a big deal, and I don't think it would have caused the issues I was having. I was noticing audio issues for a couple of weeks. This all happened as a result of the hit. It took Turtle Beach 3.5 weeks to get back to me about this, because they took so long to respond to other items I was getting replaced with. After a week, I was replied to from that thread after I sent another email. I was not impressed because I couldn't go out to stores to get a replacement and I was following state regs to avoid non business related travel. This company was the only one that ignored their customer and took too long to fix it. I was able to take a picture of the info on the cord and learn how to cut it. They agreed to send me a replacement and so far it has worked well. I couldn't find any damage with it. Overall, I still agree. I didn't experience this with any other company and it was so frustrating to have to go through all of that for a replacement. If that matters to anyone, I had a fan replaced and a wireless one sent to me for warranty issues, but I had to wait less than a week for confirmation of shipments. It is comfortable, cute and clear. They are a little large but still can feel snug after a couple hours in the ears. I wish you could change the volume of the game and voice at the same time.
It works with Windows Sonic if you pair the headset with a surround sound system that puts audio with a high degree of accuracy. The large 50 millimeter drivers of the gaming headsets create a better gaming experience. Also works well for other services. The closed ear cup design of the gaming headset blocks out background noise and the noise canceling mic picks up your voice and transmits clear communication to teammates. All-day comfort is delivered by the ultra soft memory foam ear cushions and padded headband. Steady fit for all head sizes is ensured by lightweight and retractable aluminum headband. The control wheel and mic switch on the cable are convenient in-line controls. It's perfect for Call of Duty, Star Wars, and other games. There is a gaming headset with microphone support for PS5 and PS4. The professional customer service warranty is 7* 24H.
👤These headphones are very quiet. I don't have to turn up the volume too loud. The sound quality is crystal clear when it comes to hearing. I hear a lot of noises that my old headphones wouldn't pick up. I can have the volume up to 25% and it can be too loud sometimes. If I have the microphone too close to my nose, it will pick up my breathing. People can hear me with no problems if I have the mic. I don't have to have the mic in my mouth for people to hear me. The headphones are comfortable to wear. These headphones don't bother my ears or hurt my head if I wear them for more than a couple of hours. The cord is long.
👤The price is one of the factors that we consider when buying a gaming headset. The budget plays a big part in determining whether or not I can get. The price factor is something that can be misinterpreted. Many people bought low-quality gaming headsets and headphones, while others haven't gotten value for their money. We decided to try the GH 100 wired gaming headsets, which is under $50, after a lot of research. We may need a budget of over $200 to get a headset that offers high-end gaming. If you can afford it, buy it because people get real value for their money. There is a All is not lost if we operate with a tight budget. It is possible to get high-quality gaming headsets even with a budget. One way to make sure that buyer gets a great gaming headset is to avoid wireless headsets. It's rare to find good wireless headsets with a budget. wired gaming headsets under $100 will not be missed. We can always go for average-priced gaming headsets and never regret our decision. That is also the reason why we use wired headphones. If the budget is low, some manufacturers design their headsets with you in mind. It explains why it is possible to get a pair for less than $20. You can always leave if you don't use the headphones often. It works well with basic functions, which has proven to be enough for some people. It may be suicidal to settle for such headphones if you enjoy long gaming. Their material is plastic, which makes them uncomfortable and not healthy to wear for long hours. It would hurt your head and ears, which isn't worth it at the end of the day. It is unfortunate that they will damage your ears. We used 4 hours a day and it worked well, we recommend you to try it. When buying gaming headsets, price is not the only thing that matters. Some manufacturers will only give you mediocre results if you spend a lot of money on the product. Some aren't too expensive and give the buyer an amazing gaming experience. We found a great headset. It is one of the best headsets for $50. It has features that every game player is looking for, and it has a fair price. Don't compromise on quality when buying headphones. We don't need to break the bank to get a high-quality set.
Next-gen gaming is designed for games like Call of Duty, Black Ops, DOTA 2, and Monster Hunter. Gifts for holidays and birthdays. The wireless connection is gaming-grade. The battery can last up to 30 hours. HyperX has comfort andDurability. A built-in chat mixer. 50 millimeter drivers give in-game audio a cinematic feel. The microphone has a mic monitoring and indicator. There are 90 rotating earcups. The audio, mic and chat controls are intuitive.
👤Astro A50's are overpriced. The Turtle Beach Stealth 700 are garbage. Steelseries Arctis 9X have connection issues and do not fit larger heads. HyperX CloudX. Flight is close to perfect. They fit all head sizes, have great battery life, and the sound quality is great. The mic monitoring on these is perfect. The mic monitoring does not decrease in volume when the game volume is reduced. The game/chat mix option is available. The lighting on the side can be turned off or left on. The battery has been good so far. They have not had to refill their batteries in 6 nights of gaming. Audio has been great. There is a lot of punch out of this headset. Don't pay a fortune if you skip the unreliable BS. HyperX makes great products at affordable prices. Couldn't be happier with these.
👤The headset is very unique. A gem that is dedicated to the experience of the XBOX. It comes with inherent tradeoffs, but I love it. The sound is amazing. It's rare to find fully wireless headsets for chat. No more wires! The connection built into this headset feels sophisticated. The comfort is amazing. Can where for a few hours without being noticed. The buttons work. It was very easy to turn the mic off. There is a clear voice connection. High volume sound effects come in clear. crackle-free. HyperX is one of the most sophisticated licensed headsets on the market. Good signal strength and clarity. The speaker quality is shown by Windows Sonic for Headphones. Ready to rock! There is a chance of compatibility with the next generation of consoles. There is no 3.5mm jack for audio/mic, so it's only useful for Windows 10 and Xbox. The battery does not have an audio or visual gauge. You don't know how much battery is left. The battery bar is blank, but it shows as plugged in. Unlike other brands, the headset does not announce volume levels. The on-screen interface can be used to set chat/game volume levels. HyperX has provided new software for their headsets in the past, and will hopefully do the same for CloudX. Same goes to you Microsoft drivers. This headset is a joy to own and use, it is designed to enhance the XBOX experience, and is a care-free headset. It looks like a collector's item and has a novel feel. There are no headsets on the Xbox. Rarely can you get a truly compatible product like this outside of Microsoft, and I needed a headset that was going to be dedicated to my Xbox. It is designed with a focus on mobility and the sound quality is better for that purpose. The cons are only cons if you are expecting a use-for-anything headset, as Xbox puts a hefty price on their high-quality patented technology. The difference in quality standards between PS4 and Xbox is what caused thecompatibility barrier to be overcome by the CloudX. I use professional headphones for work. It doesn't take long to charge and the battery life lasts so long, the lack of a gauge barely crosses my mind. I don't let batteries run out. If you love Xbox, these are perfect.
Powerful audio is achieved by refined ear cup acoustics and 50mm speakers. The microphone integrates into the headset when it's muted and enhances chat clarity. Turtle Beach's exclusive Superhuman Hearing sound setting lets you hear subtle, game-changing sounds so you can live up to 20% longer and win more. The Turtle Beach Superhuman Hearing study was conducted in May. It's possible to deliver surround sound with Windows Sonic, Dolby Atmos, and DTS Headphone: X, but it may require additional purchases, app downloads, and supported hardware. MIC MONITORING is a way to hear your own voice while you chat with friends. It's glasses-friendly. The ProSpecs comfort-driven design removes pressure on your glasses while you play. You should always be prepared to play with up to 15-hours of gaming per charge using the included charging cable.
👤I read reviews before buying electronics, so I was pretty sure that I would either love or hate this headset. The mic monitoring made the item useless, according to reviews. The headset is comfortable and the sound is clear. You change it in your settings on the console and everything changes. It's amazing. The sound is clear and the volume is great. The sound was too low in other sets. This one doesn't have that problem. It has a volume adjustment on the side of the headset. I don't like having to change the sound settings on the xbox. The ear pieces are light and comfortable. I wear glasses and most headsets push my glasses in on my head. The headset is comfortable and doesn't push on my glasses. The only thing bad about this headset is that it has a foam feeling pad on top of the headband. It will wear down after a while. I like the cloth strap better than the Arctis, but can we really have everything? Plug your headset into a computer before you use it. Turtle Beach has an update program that you can download. If you do this, you won't have any issues with the mic monitoring that people are complaining about. Take your time and do your update! The paper inside tells you to update your firmware. Your issues are not a problem with the headset if you fail to do so.
👤The headset was released in September. Many of the issues will be fixed eventually. Below is a list of issues. 1. It's nearly impossible to play online games because of the sound. If somone is walking behind me on my left, the headset will make the footstep sounds on my right. Everything is not the same. 2. The mic settings pick up noise in the house and outside. The mic has an echo so you can hear everything. 3. The turtle beach app is the only way to calibrate the mic and headset. The app doesn't work on the phone, so you have to use a computer to change settings. 4. I downloaded the app to try and fix the issues I have. I followed the instructions after updating the software. The headset had a red light turn on after I finished updating it. I can't turn off the headset or connect to the console. I think I need to wait for the batteries to die and hope it works once I charge the headset. 5. Turtle Beach can't help you with any of your problems because all customer support is backed up. I now have a headset that can't be turned off or used. Turtle Beach needs to fix these issues soon. Turtle Beach needs to hire better test and design verification engineers. There are too many issues with this product.
👤I ordered these and out of the box they were terrible. I downloaded the software from Turtle Beach and plugged it into my computer to make sure it was up to date. They have been working well. These went from 5 stars to 5 stars for me. Will update if there are other issues.

It works with Windows Sonic if you pair the headset with a surround sound system that puts audio with a high degree of accuracy.
👤The main headphones I use are the HD599SE from Sennheiser. The Kaira are closed back. I like the Kaira X white color, it fits my PC color scheme, and I like the fabric cable. I bought it for PC and console gaming. First impressions were uncertain. I expected more bass. The HD599 are more focused than the Kairas. HD599 has more bass. The bass and treble are not in front. I was worried about price being low, but so far I am pleasantly surprised with Kaira X. I would get low quality audio. I am content so far. Audio is clean and neutral. There are strong mids. If you listen to music, you will hear the high hats. You will hear those foot steps if you play games. There was no booming bass. If you don't want explosions to drown our other noises, this is good. You may want more bass if you play games like Grand Theft Auto 5. I will use HD599SE. The fabric Ear Pods are comfortable. No heat or pain. I don't think the mic is replaceable. I tried, but didn't want to break. The soundstage is closed back. I like to alternate.
👤The sound quality on this headset is on par. I can hear someone reloading their weapon in the next room when I use them for games like Call of Duty. The sound of movies and TV shows is very good, even if you use an over the ear headset. My only complaint is that it can be difficult to turn the mic off while playing but my controller has that function and I was in the habit of using it anyway. It is not a big problem. I used Windows Sonic on my XBOX and it was slightly better than using Dolby, but you can change the settings if you have the app. They sound good with either option.
👤Nice headset! Light weight and comfortable! I have tried many headsets, but this is the one I like the most. Really happy! 3.5 head jack works on all platforms, and just look at how beautiful it is.
👤I got this for my 14th birthday. He enjoys playing on the Xbox one. He barely hears when I scream for him. It's super comfy for extended wear. Highly recommended for the price.
👤This headset is great. It has great audio. The footsteps in the games are crystal clear and you can hear all the small sounds in the background. My friends can hear me. It is very comfortable and fits my head. The headset is a steal at 60 dollars and the button is easy to use. I would highly recommend anyone looking for a really good headset to buy it.
👤It is comfortable and sounds great, my friends can hear me clearly, and the sound quality is an 8.
👤It was my fault. The accessories app requires you to turn the volume up on the console. The audio is good, but the game audio is barely audible with the volume turned all the way up. If they were just for listening to music, I would give them five stars, but since they are advertised as gaming headphones, I can't give them five stars.

👤After 2 months of use, it constantly disconnected from my xbox. It is almost unbearable to use. I can only imagine what I will lose if I resell them. There are a few things that keep the headset from being 5 stars. It takes too long to turn on, it randomly turns off, and it doesn't like to charge with the provided cable. The headset is comfortable, good battery life, friends say that the mic quality is great, and it's easy to connect to all your devices, but the cons are pretty annoying. I will update the rating if the issues go away.
👤I ignored the reviews and bought these because they were the best for the XBOX. They are great when they work. The sound is amazing. I could hear leaves rustling. They work for a while and then distort. I owned them for the second night in a row. I think they did it five times. I'm going to buy a pair of Sennheisers because I'm giving up on these "gamer" headphones. I don't talk to anyone.
👤These headphones do something few can do, so you have to understand that. I was looking for headphones that could be used for both PC and XBOX gaming, and this is the key! It was easy to pair the controller to the Xbox. It also turned on the Xbox, which was convenient. It's easy to pair the computer with. The quality is not the same. The mic sounds terrible. If you have the Microsoft Wireless Adapter, it becomes a pretty decent PC headphones as well. The mic sounds clear and the sound is great. You have to re-pair the headphones when you switch from console to PC or vise-versa. It takes 6 seconds to pair, so it's not a big deal. I think they are great. I think these sound better than Turtle Beach 800x Elite. They are more comfortable and lighter on the head. The Turtle Beach had too many options on the headphones and the wireless base transmitter was too heavy. The only cons I can think of is that you can't go too loud with these, which will save your ears in the long run. These are the headphones that will work with PC and Xbox. They sound great. The mic is good. They are light and stylish. You have to buy a separate accessory for the headset because it is not included with the Microsoft Wireless Adapter.
👤No one likes to be disappointed in the end. Take what you want and make a decision. I was a fan of Turtle Beach for a long time but never went back after my first Steel Series Headset. After the abuse my 2 year old put my last Arctis through and many late night gaming sessions. The Steel Series performance andDurability Impressed me. I received the Arctis 9X wireless headset a few days ago and I can already say it is my favorite. They added a few improvements over previous models. It makes for a better experience. They put a red light on the mic to make it easier to see muted vs unmuted. The chat mixer/volume wheels were moved to a less cluttered area so that you don't accidentally blow out your ear drums. The ear pieces and ski strap band are great for fit and comfort. I know I can wear it for years without any issues or degrading parts, even if my spawn throws it across a room. The mic is clear and clean when it's being used. After hours of use, the battery life is not yet known. It was easy to unbox and protect the shipping. I already tested the limits of the previous model and gave it 5 stars. I know it's premature to give Arctis 9X a 5 Stars early, but I've spent time with it and it works well. If you're wrong, you'll see an updated version.

There is a second mic hidden in the headset that can be used without the HyperClear Cardioid mic. The headset is easy to wear on the ears, and the soft headband provides even more comfort to stay in peak form during gaming marathons.

👤I was worried about the sound quality of the wireless headsets on the Series X. I turned the Kaira Pros on and did not have any issues. I downloaded the "Razer Headset Setup for Xbox" app on Series X to change the lighting and sound settings. It is good for the love of all. The app can be used to modify your sound. The sound quality and clearness will be different compared to the basic ones. You can thank me later, I changed my custom settings to: low +9, low-mid +3,mid 0,mid-high +3,high +9 When I played random music on the spotify app from A$AP Rocky, BlackPink, and even Michael Jackson, I was blown away by the sound quality. Everything sounded more alive and clear. I played some games like GEARS 5 and AC Valhalla and everything was perfect. There are no sound or latency issues here. My friends can hear me when I'm loud and clear with the mic quality. You can update your headphones via Windows 10, which is great, and you can also charge them via the internet, which is great, since I no longer use microusb cables in my house anymore. The only negative I can think of is that it would've been nice but not available, but it doesn't. I was waiting for the Steelseries 9x to go on sale but that never happened so I am happy these came out in time for the holiday season and for $50 cheaper than the 9x. I recommend these for those in the xbox family.
👤The Raker KaIRA pro! All I can say is WOW. There are several things you need to know before purchasing a headset. The headset is comfortable. It has a nice design. It doesn't feel cheap or easy to break. It has settings in which you can mix and match sound. Dislikes: Oh boy... I wish this was something I saw in other reviews. You will get the headset and join a party with friends to tell them that you mic quality is better than Arctis 9x or Astros. Even when you are not talking, there is a buzzing and static sound coming from your mic. This can be fixed by starting a new file. You have to use the broadcast mic setting in order to stop the buzzing sound, and you can't have your sound settings to high. It will be picked up by the mic. The mic is finally here. It doesn't sound crisp or clear, but it does a great sound of picking up every single movement you make, whether it be scratching you head, licking your lips or somethings breathing! I don't understand how a mic that picks up all this with ease doesn't sound good when it comes to voice. This headset is perfect for people who don't use party chat, but are interested in headsets. It will deliver great sound for hours with some nice looking RGB. There is a If you are a squad player and like to play coms, I would look into a better mic sounding headset such as the Arctis 9x by steel series. I would recommend it to you.
