Fantastic Headset

I have been using the headset for the last 2 months and have had no issues. I use the headset solely for gaming, and have not used it for any other features (movies, blue tooth functionality).The surround sound is amazing and the ability to change the preset on the fly based on what game type you are playing (shooter, racing etc...) puts it over the top. I have never had any issues with the mic and other players can hear me clearly. The price point is steep but if you are looking for a fully wireless headset that with great sound them this is the headset to go with.

Excellent

Best headset ever, sound and options second to none. No other headphones compare for all devices used. Only complaint is that I sometimes accidentally hit the different buttons on the headphones, I. e. head touches couch or I take them off. 99/100

Great - with a few minor issues

These are, by far, the best gaming headphones that I have ever used. The sound quality is outstanding and the freedom to tune the sound to suit the source material is an excellent feature. The mic is 100% fine, don't let the online reviews deter you because whatever issue they might have had is clearly resolved. The sound is full and detailed, and the surround sound accurate in terms of position and soundstage. They work very well with audio sources, either wirelessly or passively via plug and the noise cancelling feature is astoundingly accurate - though at the cost of mic monitoring (another godsend if you've never had that feature). Probably the two standout features are the blue-tooth connectivity for taking calls in-game (really great for troubleshooting multiplayer sound issues!) and the charging stand (just drop and go, no cables). That they are the only TRULY wireless Xbox One headset is also a big win for wireless fans. My only quibble is that the controls being mounted on the faceplates of the headset mean that you need either to have a pretty good memory for what is where or have an android phone with the app for switching between the various mic/sound/genre settings. If you like to lay down, hitting a setting is also occasionally a problem if you turn your head on a pillow or similar. This overly sensitive button setup is, in my opinion, the only downside of an otherwise truly amazing headset. Some might find the clamping force higher than they like (I have a huge head, but its fine for me), but it is really effective at keeping the outside sounds at bay. I'd rate this 5-star based on the price I was able to get mine at, but 3.5-4 stars if judging by the MSRP (ie value). It's hard to choke up for a headset priced higher than a console - especially when it isn't universally compatible with Playstation or PCs! (You can thank Microsoft for the latter).

Good but not great

Nice design and awesome charger! Comfortable only for about an hour. It says over ear, but infact they are on ear. After about an hour of gameplay my ears started to feel very uncomfortable. Many sound eq's, but all except stereo are pretty quite Bluetooth is really the only reason I bought them. Works great. And despite what you hear online the voice chat works perfectly fine. Overall if you don't care for the complete wireless aspect and the Bluetooth on these. I'd suggest the Astro a50.

Awesome Headset!

This headset is just amazing! Sound is excellent, noise cancellation is awesome and looks great. The Mic is really good too and offers multiple setting to adjust to whatever surroundings you are playing or talking on the phone. Plus with the Elite membership, you get 2 sets of face plates, a teeshirt and 2 years warrenty from Turtle Beach for free! Really I just have nothing bad to say about this headset, If you're looking for a highend gaming headset this is the one to get!

Great headset!!

I have a set of Astro A40's and A50's and these are far superior! After updating the firmware they were even better! A bit confusing when updating but the mic and mic monitoring became much clearer. Listen to music, no wires, charging stand, shall I go on!! I'm now considering buying the 800's for my PS4 because these are so good!!
