This review is from: Turtle Beach Call of Duty: Black Ops II KILO Limited Edition Stereo Gaming Headset (Video Game)
I just got this headset today, so everything i am saying is just my first impression. Maybe in the future i will get used to these things. First, the earcups are very hard, and don't go over your ears. I am used to the x12 headset where they go nicely over your ears. Second, the part where you change the game and chat volume is huge! This is also compared to the x12 headset, but the picture on amazon is very deceiving. There isn't much noise cancellation with the headset, but since i'm waiting for Black Ops 2 to come out, i have not yet heard the sound quality on the headset. Now for the cosmetic stuff. The earcups feel very cheap, and they flop around very easily. The wire connecting the two ears is very noticeable and you can see the glue keeping it together. Overall, if your getting this for the cushons or the looks, perhaps this isnt the headset for you. P.S. the cloth wires are badass, so not everything is displeasing....
EDIT... Okay, so its been a day since i wrote this review. I decided to take them out of the box to try the sound and to really feel em on my head. I have to say, the sound quality is much better than the x12s. i own the x12, x11, and z2. And another thing. in the review i said that the cushons didn't fit around my head properly and they were hard to the touch, now, as i write this, i'm wearing the headset and i am noticing that they actually do fit perfectly around my ears. With the x12's, the earcups were really big so there was a lot of room in my ear area, with these, they just fit around my ears and the noise cancellation with music is much better than what i previously stated.
Pros: Ears are surprisingly comfortable after a day of hate.
Sound quality is amazing compared to the headsets i stated before.
Braided wire is amazing looking and feels quite durable.
Color scheme is cool, and reminds me of Halloween, a Halloween that Sandy has ruined for me lol.
Says Black Ops 2 on top of the headset.
The volume can go quite high if you want to have ear surgery.
Only has a Usb plug and a headphone plug, unlike the x12 that needs a usb, headphone, and microphone plug.
Earcups feel hollow and made with cheap plastic.
They feel flimsy even though im sure they wont snap on me.
Braided wire is a bit heavy, so i rest it on my lap.
