Bought this headset a week ago to play with Modern Warfare 3. Always heard people talking about listening for footsteps and how it helped so I wanted to try it out but I wanted a cheap set. These are great! The sound is excellent, with the right perks in MW3 you can hear everything, footsteps, bullet casings hit the ground, everything sounds so amazing with these headphones!

They're light and comfy enough too that you can wear them for a while and not notice it. Played for about 4 hours the other night (oops) and never once did I feel uncomfortable or have to take them off for a break! So glad I bought these, definitely worth the price and then some!

I was skeptical about these because they look like they might not be that good, but they are great. The sound quality is so good I would easily compare these with the turtle Beach X12's. Great headset for the price by far.

I decided to go ahead and take the plunge and order this after reading all the positive reviews, which seem to outweigh the negative ones... a few things you should be aware of:

- if your xbox is connected to the tv via an hdmi cable ...which more than likely it is since most people nowadays have a high definition TV and want to take advantage of those crisp, sharp hdmi graphics.... then you WILL need what is referred to as a "xbox 360 audio adapter cable" from some third party seller in order to make use of this product.. I have an xbox 360 "slim" or "S" version, no idea if the audio adapter cables designed for the older (non slim, white not black colored) xbox 360's will work for the xbox 360 slim but I THINK they might... these adapters are relatively cheap, can be found for under five dollars including shipping and handling on ebay (or around the same price on amazon if you order twenty five or more dollars total to qualify for the whole free shipping and handling deal)

- the packaging the TV comes in says you can use the "tv audio out jacks found on most tv's" to use the turtle headset without the need for an audio adapter... what makes me nervous is I purchased the Panasonic VIERA TC-P54VT25 high definition television which won various awards and was considered to be THE tv of the year - and it had no audio out jacks just audio in jacks... if a TV that distinguished didn't have audio out jacks it makes me wonder if the TV's that didn't get any awards would really have audio out jacks?

- reading through the complaints listed for such audio adapter cables leaves me a bit nervous ... there seem to be a fair number of complaints about them not working though the number of "I'm happy with this" comments seem to outweigh the negative ones.

This headset is very good for the value. When I first turned them on I was amazed, the sound was very clear. It adds a lot to the 3 dimensionality of games. Right to left is most notable. Up-down, and front-back, still have a little left to be desired. The controls are very easy, one for chat, one for game volumes, and a mute switch. The chat talk back feature could be a little louder but is most effective when you try maxing out he volume. You will have no problem with the other volumes. The volume controls do move a little easy if you're moving the cord around, a lock would be nice added feature to the headset. The mic is very sensitive to sound while the boom is very sturdy. You won't have an issue with it moving or breaking on you. The fact that they plug into a usb for power will help you keep your wireless controller up and running for longer. Only problem I could foresee there is if you're using up all the USB slots with wired controllers and a wireless adapter.

Overall this is a great headset for the price. Any idiosyncrasies you have you can find them with this headset and upgrade later on. If you're looking to get your first headset at a decent price I would recommend this pair.

UPDATE------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I have owned this headset for a little under a year and there are now some major problems. The first issue is a whine that comes from the headset that others can hear but I can't, so they'll get pissed about it, this started about a month after I got the headset. The wiring inside the the left earpiece where the boom meets the earpiece is loose or something.

I got these as a gift for my fiance for his birthday. He absolutely loves them. The sound is great and it makes it easier to play games at night when you want the tv volume to be lower since he can turn the headset volume up. There are seperate volume controls for chat and for the game so you can turn each one up or down as you need to. The only problem he had was the cord that connects the headset to the controller is not labeled which end goes in which device and when it is backwards you can't be heard in chat. I am planning to purchase another pair for myself. The other reviews that complain about these being made cheaply and breaking easily are probably from people who do not take care of electronics. These will break if you are overly rough on them just as any headset will. If you want them to last for a long time then you need to treat them carefully and not throw them about.
