Universal Wireless Headset XP500
If you have been reading some of the reviews othere people have wrote, you may have heard that this mic crakles or makes popping sounds. THIS IS WRONG, well sort of. Yes, the mic DOES make these sounds, but not because of the mic. This mics wireless signal runs on 2.4GHz, which is the same signal most wireless devices use. The signal interferes with the mic, causeing a static or popping sound. To avoid these sounds, turn off nearby wireless devices like iPods. Overall, this mic is very good. By the feel, you can tell it is well built, unlike, well...Trittons. The sound quality is amazing, and considering its all wireless, it's all just more impressive. If you were thinking about buying this, go for it. Just make sure to keep the box in good condition, just in case you HAVE to return it. Hope this helped. :)
The best headset for console gamer's to date.
17 years old. I have had the Astro a50, Triton 720 and Turtle beach xp500 and honestly the xp500's beats out of all other headsets. The sound quality and custimizable features are amazing compared to the astro's and Triton. I game a lot and can say if you are a casual gamer get the x41, moderatley hardcore gamer get the xp400 and a hardcore gamer( try hard like me) xp500. Seriously xp500 are well worth 270 and astro a50 are worth about 150 not 300.
nothing to astros
ive had these for 3 months already messing up crackel all the time breaking over all astros planning on getting some a40s soon so yea pretty bad mic.
This was worth what i had paid Turtle Beach obviously knows how to make great headsets in this world.
I purchased the PX5(PS3 version) about a month ago and haven't looked back. I have always wanted a headset so I could blast sound and not worry about disturbing my roommates/girlfriend. Turtle beach says they are 7.1 surround but optical audio output only allows 5.1 surround. But let me tell you the sound that comes out of this WIRELESS(!) headset is absolutely amazing! I bit the bullet on the price but for the product that I received I love them. I also purchased the Astro A40's and Triton XP720's and compared the 3 sets before making the final decision on keeping the PX5's. I returned the other 2 sets with no problem(to amazon). Get this set you wont regret it and did I mention the customization of sound on Turtle Beaches website is awesome?
I bought this headset because I am a hardcore Xbox 360 gamer. They work perfectly and it worth every penny. Now I have a friend at work who is a hardcore gamer like me but he plays PS3 and he bought the PX5. One day we exchange our headset for a week because we want to be clear which one is better. Our result is that both headset are outstanding and you just have to pick the assign headset for the assign console (PX5 for PS3 and XP500 for Xbox 360). If you will like the other headset (PX5 for Xbox 360) its ok because they will work just as the XP500 trust me, but you have to buy the XBA Bluetooth adapter that cost around $30. Both headsets are equally awesome and I will recommend it to any hardcore gamer.
Buy it Now!
Just got a pair and let me just say...there awesome. The sound is so clear. Its also fun to morph your voice, although your friends may get anoyed. If your a serious gamer looking for a mic, go for this one. It will hold up for a long time and is worth the money!
AMAZING. WORTH THE $$$
these are amazing cannot bag on them at all. they have great comfort, style, design they are lightweight. excellent sound hear almost anything on the map u r playing on (game volume is really high) reminds me of useing Astro A30s. me and a friend on modern warfare 3 r going on a 48+ win streak on xboxlive in face off 2v2 the amount of kids that yell at me during the killcam because i turn on them due to the amazing sound. defiently worth the money. no wires is a big plus no wires from head to controller get food/drink use restroom ALL I HAVE TO SAY IS BUY AA RECHARGEABLE BATTERIES AND AT LEAST A 4 BATTERY CHARGER buy more than enough so u can have 4 batteries charging and 2 in the headset
BOUGHT FROM JEREMY AT GAMESTOP @ 21ST AND MAIZE ROAD IN NEW MARKET SQUARE. These r great for any type of shooter game me and a friend r going on a 48 win streak in face off 2v2 on Modern Warfare 3. i can hear almost anything that happens on the map (my game volume is up really high though) remind me of using Astro A30s. great quality, performance, everything. no wires from my head to the controller so i can go to the bathroom, get food/drink, walk around my room and not have to worry about having the controller. BUY RECHARGEABLE AA BATTERIES!!!
I bought these today and hooked them up and the box say range of 20ft its more lite 2ft. There is this static in both ears and the game sound glitches in and out. The programing on the computer makes no sense and it is very confusing and well not worth the price range.
