I use these for my PC and they are awesome. I can play games like Insurgency and hear the enemy's foot steps great. Also the mice can be used for left or right. Has a nice long cord and looks great. Lastly like mice sounds nice and people usually don't complain about it, only if I have it to loud and it is very flexible so you can adjust it close or far from mouth. Over all it is a fantastic buy and comfy. For those who wear glasses after a wile of having on they can start to bother (annoying pain) where the glasses rest by the ear but not always. That's after like a few hours of play 2-4 hours, just depends. But way love these headphones!

I've been in the headphone business and have been trying out all kinds of since 2006. I started out with one of Razer's first headsets and that left a nasty taste in my mouth as far as gaming headphones went.

I then moved on to more audiophile cans like the Sennheiser HD600/650/555 HD-25, Beyerdynamic Darth Beyers and DT770/880, Sony MDR-F1, SA5000, turtle beach 5.1 and probably more that I am forgetting about. I've been there and done that when it comes to headphones but finding good headsets (since a built-in mic is so convenient) was the real challenge as there are plenty of overpriced trash out there but as well as extremely expensive quality headsets that hit +$300.

Finally, Turtle Beach addressed the majority of the problems I had with the so-called gaming headset.

They are comfortable, light, great mic, quality volume adjuster (no hissing), compatible with both my consoles, circumaural design (surrounds ears) and pc and they sound great with the nice addition of bass boost. So you can either have no bass to little or a ton of it. I also like the fact that it is an open-ear design. This helps with the soundstage qualities that give you the immersion when playing or watching movies. Also your ears will not sweat.

If I had to compare these to a more high-end brand I would say these remind me a lot of the Sennheiser HD555. They not only feel similar when I wear them but they sound quite similar which is a plus.

My favorite by far are the Beyerdynamic DT880 headphones but when it comes to something reliable that gets the job done, I will look to my X12 as my alternative and main headphones when on a tight budget.

You really cannot go wrong picking these up...

Easily the most poorly designed product like this that you will find.
I have nothing to say about the sound. That isn't the problem.
These headsets break way too easily. The earpiece rotates on a little plastic pin molded into it. That little plastic pin will break with very little force, such as if the headset is dropped onto the floor. Once it breaks, there is no fixing it. It must be made of polypropylene, as epoxy won't stick to it.
A complete waste of money. Not a chance that I will ever buy one of these again, or any other Ear Force product made like it.

This is the first negative review I have posted but for this product I feel I need to. I bought these headphones for my son and within 4 months the sound in the left ear completely went out. I was able to get it partially working by Duct taping the wire in just the right position but with in a week it died permanently. Now today the cup on the right ear has fallen off completely.

I contacted amazon and like I expected it was too far out of warranty for Amazon to do anything. I don't blame them, they have always been extremely helpful to me in the past. From what I hear it's almost impossible to actually get help directly from Turtle Beach on their "limited one year guarantee" and it seems they can only be contacted by email.

If I can actually get help with the headphone I will update this post, but for now it looks they were a complete waste of money. At this point I will not buy another product from Turtle Beach.

I bought these for my husband. He doesn't use them all the time, just when he's trying to spare me sometimes from the various noises that the video games make. He had them for exactly one month and they broke. The cord that connects to one of the ear pieces shorted and now he can't talk with them. We're trying to get a replacement pair. With all the fantastic ratings Turtle Beach has I would think they would have some kind of warranty. If they do I'll come back and revise my rating.

I was very excited to get these because Turtle Beach is a very well known headset company but.... I get static sound without talking to friends or listening to things non stop. AND these are so uncomfortable! I wear it for more than a hour and my ears are killing me. And not even from the volume it is the fitting of the headset.

Despite the misleading packaging, Turtle Beach has produced a wonderful PC compatible headset in the form of the X12. I was a bit hesitant to purchase anything that says "XBOX" on it when that was not my intent at all - I purchased this for use while gaming, surfing the web, and listening to music. The first thing you'll notice is how clean the stitching quality is, the little cosmetic details that Turtle Beach totally didn't have to do, but did anyway.

The second thing you'll notice is how comfortable they feel going on. I've got a pretty massive noggin and could probably give the Queen of Hearts a run for her money. As an academic, I spend hours on my PC writing papers and reviewing articles online usually accompanied by hours of Pandora Radio. The only difference now is that I find myself instinctively reaching for my X12s even if I'm just surfing the web. Even without music playing, they cancel a lot of ambient sound out and due to their comfortable feel are easy to wear at all times - dare I say soothing? They don't compress your head at all, instead simply "fit" over your ears and allow for different shapes and sizes.

The third thing you'll discover is the X12's outstanding compatibility with Windows operating systems and voice chat related programs such as Skype, TS3, and even the elusive Steam "Voice Chat". I've had no problems configuring the microphone and 99% of the time the headset is simply a plug-n-play device. You'll also notice a heavier feeling in your pockets as the X12 headset clocks in significantly less than some of the "fancy" competitor's products.
