-cord is obnoxiously long. Almost too long. I can probably lay in my bed and use these to listen to whatever is streaming off my computer now.
-audio is pretty good. For the price im happy with them. I don't feel like i can pin point a characters movement, but I know someone's around for sure.
-don't get too hot while they cup the ears. Some headphones have me getting hot ears quick.
-bass boost is meh, it adds substance to the audio. Helps the user balance it i guess.
-friends haven't complained about voice and keying up on the mic, seems to come in clear and work well.
-plugs into usb, mic, and heapphone jack. Works well like this
-doesn't feel clunky like another slightly cheaper set was that I had.
I like the various volume controls.
The sound is great.
The mic is awesome and sensitive.
There is a mic mute button.
The mic is bendable.
The mute switch is difficult to find without accidentally messing with the sound wheels because it's right next to them.
There are 3 volume controls but they aren't intuitively placed. I'd prefer the game volume to be right by the mute and the more diverse controls on the opposite side. I had to constantly pause my recording to find the right control wheel.
Way too tight on my (quite small and feminine) head, so they will definitely give any male a headache. No matter how much stretching out I did, they remained painfully tight. This alone is why I suggest you do not buy these.
The ear cushions are not thick enough to keep my ears from pressing against the inside, which makes my ears super sore. I cannot stand to wear these over 1 hour at a time.
The mic doesn't fold or swivel up; it's always out.
I gave these to my 5 year old to wear when he borrows my computer for a game. I cannot stand to wear them. If you want super comfy headphones with a mic that don't hurt the sides of your head if you wear glasses, try these:
"SteelSeries 5Hv3 Gaming Headset for PC, Mac, Tablets, and Phone"
I got them last night and hooked them up and sure enough they sounded good. Although, I was really curious to compare the Gold Wireless Headphones to the X12's. SO, during a 2 hour play session I switched back and forth in different moments of the game. Least to say I was blown away. I was blown away at how GOOD the X12's sound. The Gold Wireless did not pump out any bass (Even after I tweaked the bass in the settings via the Playstation) and the virtual surround was okay. To my shock, the X12's pumped bass and actually rivaled the surround sound the Gold Wireless Headphones produced. NO frickin joke!
Seriously, I immediately took the GOLD wireless phones downstairs, packed them back in the box, put them back in the shipping box, taped it up and requested a refund on Amazon and UPS picked them up the next day.
SO i'm sitting here looking at my X12's and debating whether I purchase a new set of X12's or upgrade to a better Turtle Beach set only because after this I'm confident Turtle Beach is going to produce the same quality sound in their headphones as the X12's.
SO if your on the fence about these X12's, get them. It's worth the $40 bucks. These kicked a $100 headphone in the butt. ALSO, in case you didn't know, you can easily hook these up to a PS4 using Toslink and a mic wire specifically made for X12 to PS4.
If you want to know how shoot me a reply and I'll explain what I did. These headphones aren't only for just Xbox.
*Great sounding, and very clear. Bass s perfect and no crackling.
*Microphone picks up voices very well. Perfect for team speak or in games.
*Very comfortable for extended wear, say 8+ hour game sessions.
I can't say that I have any CONS. The first pair broke but after daily wear they took a ton of abuse. So breakage was bound to happen at some point.
Really great pair of headphones!
