Amplified Audio – Enhances game sounds for a more immersive experience

Top Positive Review

To start, I purchased this refurbished from Amazon. I use this almost everyday, both for gaming and watching movies.

For the price, this gaming headset is top notch. It has virtual surround sound (very useful for first person shooters) and the bass will make your eardrums thump. Overall sound quality is awesome, as I have come to expect from turtle beach products.

This model IS wired and connects both to the game system via usb, and to the tv via the AV (red and white) chords. This set up can be kind of a hassle, as you DO have to change the system settings to play sound output through the headset instead of the tv. For the technologically inclined, no problem.

This headset also has excellent microphone quality. No complaints from any of the folks I play with.

This headset also has separate volume controls for game sound and chat volume, both easily reachable on the headset itself.

Other reviews have stated that the padding digs into your skull and can be uncomfortable for extended use. After using this headset for over 6 months now and with daily use, I have no complaints about the comfort. The pad is kind of narrow, so perhaps if you are bald… maybe.

Now, all of that being said, this is a basic model of turtle beach gaming headsets. It is Spartan in design and features. You can get much more extravagant headsets with a lot of features and functions if you want to deal out the extra cash. This model is best suited for people who are looking for a functional, good quality, basic gaming headset for a budget price. I definitely recommend this product.

Top Critical Review

It does the trick for an affordable price, however if you’re very much into gaming (more than a few days a week, and more than a couple hours at a time) or if your gaming involves a high importance of teamwork (Halo, COD, etc.) then I suggest a more expensive, popular and reliable brand/type. The earpieces on this one aren’t that comfortable for more than an hour, and it often times goes in and out, although that could be due to other players as well. But i simply wanted to hear other people and talk to them occasionally when I play GTA Online. I don’t regret the purchase nor am I very proud of it.

Customer Questions & Answers

Does this headset just hook up to your USB slot or does this have to hook up to the audio/video jacks also (red,white,yelliow) in back of your tv?
Answer:

Yes or no, depending on your TV, but either way it will not affect how far the headset can be away from the PS3. The headset has two cables: a composite cable (red and white jacks) and a USB cable. BOTH need to connect to the PS3 in some way, but only the USB cable determines how far away the headset can be from the PS??

how long is the cord
Answer: I gave it as a gift but I call the kid that I gave it to and he said it at least 7ft. long

Can the foam be replaced?!? becuase i bought a pair and the foam for your ears are cheap and rips easily
Answer: Yes you can replace the earphone cushions, here is the link to the product page: http://bit.ly/1TXhVnB

Answer: Yes. The headset is great with Call of Duty.. the explosion sounds are awesome and it actually made me feel like i was in the game because how great this headset is.
