INCREDIBLE SOUND

The Afterglow Wireless headset feature large, 50mm speakers calibrated for audio depth, sonic richness, and clarity of sound with crystal-clear high-tones and richer, more thrill-inducing bass. The speakers have been tuned by an award winning Hollywood audio post production company for accurate sound recreation. The Afterglow Wireless Headset features three distinct audio modes. Raw audio features pure stereo audio without any alterations. Bass Boost mode increases the low end, bringing extra life to epic battles or your favorite music & movies. Immersive mode features a proprietary 3D algorithm that will expand the virtual space you're playing in without the use of cross channel sampling, preserving the directionality of the games audio (critical in FPS multiplayer) while still providing an expanded sonicscape.

Afterglow Wireless Transmitter

SUPERIOR CONNECTION

Powered by the latest Avnera wireless chipset, the Afterglow Wireless headset features a strong wireless signal free of audio drops and interference with an extended range to cover your home. Transmitter comes pre-paired right out of the box. The rechargeable battery provides over 10 hours per charge. A battery low tone will sound once a minute for 10 minutes before the headset loses power. Headset lights will also turn off to let you know the unit is conserving power. The included 10 foot charging cable lets you charge while playing, providing virtually no down time while using your headset and eliminating the need for batteries.

When the microphones LED tip cycles colors, it is searching for the transmitter. Solid blue indicates a connection and that the headset is in pure audio mode, while blinking once every minute indicates the microphone mute is on. A red LED indicates Bass Boost mode, while green indicates that the headset is in Immersive Audio mode.

5.0 out of 5 stars Really, Turtle Beach...shame on you... October 24, 2012
Color:Blue|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I previously had reviewed the Turtle Beach Ear Force X42 Wireless Dolby Surround Sound Gaming Headset. For a headset that normally goes for a $160, I was expecting a lot from the Turtle Beach...and it did fairly well. I was pretty disappointed by the lackluster bass performance, however.

The mic on this headset performs about as well as the Turtle Beach does. Range is also quite excellent - I'm able to walk to the other side of my house and still hear what's going on without interference which is impressive given that I do have a dual-band router plus an assortment of electronics throughout the house.

Where this headset excels over the Turtle Beach, however, is in bass reproduction. For a headset that retails for $90 less than Turtle Beach's X42, it puts it to shame. It's not going to be a contender for a Beats or a Bose headset, mind you, but it really puts the Turtle Beach to shame. Playing Borderlands, I hear the satisfying low roar of a rocket launcher firing and the thud of a far off explosion which sounds puny on the Turtle Beach. The Immersive Audio mode is by far my favorite audio mode for playing games and it sounds great.

And can the X42 work on the PC? Or the Playstation? Or with a mobile phone? I think not - this Afterglow actually is compatible with ALL of these devices at a fraction of the price.

Battery life promises 10 hours - I have used it for 9 thus far and not a glimmer/hint of the headset's battery life waning. The lithium ion battery appears to work as advertised thus far.

As for build, this headset doesn't feel like it's going to break like the X42 does.

5.0 out of 5 stars Surprisingly great quality at a reasonable price. October 9, 2012
Color:Blue
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
While I neither own, nor play, any of the modern game systems that this device is targeted for, I do have quite a lot of experience with headphones and with consumer electronics. I looked at the sonic qualities of them in use as a traditional headset and I did not evaluate the microphone at all. If you are looking for a review from a gameplayer, this is not it, but if the same level of quality went into the design and implementation of the microphone as it did the sonic quality of the headsets, I think it will be perfect for even the most finicky gamer.

FIT AND FINISH

Physically the headsets have a bit of a Tron-like look to them, which may not be perfectly suited for the average 30+ year old. Thankfully the designers provided several different illumination settings for the headsets. I promptly set the illumination to be disabled -- no need to waste precious battery life.

The overall fit of the headset wasn't perfect. Having it be adjustable would be a very welcome feature for those of us that have a bit bigger noggin. The ear cups didn't sit flat because they were a bit on the tight side. I ended up rotating the headband toward the back of my head and thankfully the cups can be rotated to fit your ear angle. This provided a mostly comfortable fit, but still no where near as comfortable as it could be if even slight adjustment was possible.

SETUP

Getting the headsets set up was fairly straightforward. Plug in the USB dongle to the back of your computer or game console, connect the audio output using the 1/8" mini-plug or one of the adapters provided, power on the headsets and let the dongle and headsets pair up. Instant wireless audio.

5.0 out of 5 stars I will never use my Beats again. October 16, 2012
Color:Blue
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This is honestly the perfect headset for me. I have used it for gaming, skype calls, and listening to music and it works great for all of those things. I love how I can walk around my house or sit on my balcony while talking on Skype, the range is great as well. The only time it ever cut out on me is when I tried walking out to my car with them on. They don't have a whole lot of adjustability, but they fit my head just fine. Not to mention that they look better than any other headset available. I got the one day shipping for three dollars with Prime and it arrived in about 12 hours which is quite impressive if you ask me. They seem to be made of quality material, so they should hold up just fine.

5.0 out of 5 stars Honestly see nothing wrong with them October 10, 2012
Color:Blue
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
People have had different views of PDP Afterglow's products. I'm not quite an expert though because this is my first product I've bought from them. Might buy a controller later on but anyway;

- Sound - This Headset sounds great for its cost. The three different audios are clear, The Bass Boost really does add a nice oomph of impact depending on what game/music your listening to. On PC, I use a Equalizer to increase the effect further when I really feel like having my head rattled so much the headset technically shakes itself(though long term usage-wise..it might not be advised to abuse it.)-Another Note- The've done well to add the Bass Boost without really distorting the Highs of the sound, though you can still notice the difference in contrast though.. The Virtual Surround Sound mode is probably what you will use with everything you listen to. It isn't no 7.1 but it does do a pretty good job of opening the "field of sound" from just your ears to your whole head to give a overall nice richness of sound.. The VSS mode, as it has on the box, will be able to obtain the highest high's out of all 3 modes and it can still capture a nice low to an extent. Technically, it's the Jack of all Trade mode. Then the Pure Audio is pretty much the normal default mode. It will always be set to it when you turn the headphones on.

- Value - About power usage, well, They certainly told the truth about how long they last. I haven't really ran into a loss of power problem since I've got them. Of course, I don't quite have the time to fully play them for 10-12 straight hours and if you use them in a mobile device, they don't really use power unless you manually turn the lighting effect on(because it's not automatic unless they're used on console or PC)The glow effect is awesome, of course.
