If i could rate this a zero i would... this is absolute garbage of a head set, the boom is not long enough so the only way for it to actuate is to yell. I can count to three while talking loud and it will pick it up, after three it shuts off. The sound quality that you hear is garbage as well. FAIL on this product big time, taking it back, bought it 20 minutes ago and its already back in the box.
I bought this for my youngest son, after my older son told me about it. He had purchased the same headset previously. Both boys are very satisfied with the headsets, and Mom is very satisfied with the price.
Frist off I desided to write a reveiw cuz of all the negative ones & I don't have the issue they do..... I think this is a great Mic for anyone who games loud. It wont pick up your voice if you get soft so it's even great for saying things under your breath you don't want people to hear.Plus great for those who sit only inches away from eachother like my man & I do. I have owned it for 1 day now & persoally love this one more than the Trutle beachs we had. Our firends say they can hear us clearer, we don't intersept with eachothers talking trying to say something the same time.(More like mean comments to the games NPC's or other people that go all noob on the game# If you want something that don't pick up everything around you, is cheap, takes little room to store, and don't intersept with someones mic only less than 10 inchs beside you I would say buy this. If you have the money to waste & only game by your self plus dont have others around that can be heard then get a Turtle Beach. I have to say that I personally am not a big fan of Turtle beachs beacuase you can hear everything in the back ground & sometimes things go on in the house you don't want people to hear. I will write another review once I have owned it longer #if I don't then I forgot.)
So far, this is the worst headset I have ever purchased. Do not bother with this little piece of plastic. - Mic Boom is NOT adjustable and mic is of very poor quality.
- The ear loop is only adjustable in the middle, the end will not form to the bottom of the ear.
- The mute button is awkward and not very easy to slide on an off quickly.
- The volume wheel is extremely loose and will either lower itself or increase on it's own. Do not waste your money on this item as they sell $9 ones that are far superior.
my kid is a total hammer head and he hasnt ruined it yet
If you like throwing away money, may I suggest you throw your money in the garbage or give it to a hobo? Complete waste of money, was on a budget bought this, and it broke in less than a week. Poor design unless you are a 12 year old, mic doesn't reach mouth, earpiece is awkward and uncomfortable, and breaks trying to talk online for no reason.
returned this within a day!!! It was suppose to be for my son but I figured I would test it out and I am a loud gamer by the way and none of my friends could hear me and all I could hear was static. the only way my friends could hear me is if I was screaming at the top of my lungs (and they still only got bits and pieces) which no I don't want to hear my son screaming from the other side of the house just so his friends can hear him lmao! So yea took it rite back to the store and bought him a reg xbox 360 bluetooth one! My lesson learned never buy off brands ya don't know much about.
So after my old headset broke i decided to go headset hunting.
was on a budget, saw this for $18 so i decided to try it out.
Got home opened it up plugged it in, first game i join all i hear is static.
does not pick up voice very well.
friends kept telling me over live that they couldn't hear me. and if more than one person
talks at once you can't hear anything all you hear is just a bunch of noise.
Earpiece is bendable for the smaller ears of children. Good value for my 9 year old son.
No one can hear me talking unless I YELL. Horrible waste of money, my $4 headset from Amazon is much better!
the mic is no where close to your month. You have to yell and i mean YELL! in order for some one to hear you. and even at that it doesn't always reflect what you are saying. I was testing it through xbox live chat and I yelled a sentence to my friend at the same volume and only half of what I said was heard. Don't waste your time buying this. I ordered one of the original headsets off ebay for four dollars and some change and it works perfect.
It was uncomfortable, did not manage to fit well, and caused echo multiple times...
This headset is absolute garbage. It doesn't pick up anything you're saying until about 5 seconds into talking. If I could rate it a 0 I would. Don't buy it for the price, spend a little extra and get a headset that won't make you want to throw it!
Would not configure had to return it
I bought these so that I could have a small mic for my xbox in my dorm room. Since they were pretty cheap I didn't expect much, but even then they didn't even come close to meeting my expectations. First of all, the fit is completely wrong, unless you have massively huge ears they won't fit right and will be very uncomfortable. Secondly, the mic almost never picks up my voice and I feel like I have to yell just so someone can hear me and I never know if they can hear me when I talk.
So I bought this having decent expectations. I read the reviews and saw that they had problems with it breaking, I thought I'll just try to take really good care of it. So I decided to buy it and check it out. First day it worked great, good voice, can hear clearly, and the controls were easy. As the second day, it wasn't so great, it down performanced on the mic and the wire was starting to make it so that it can't be placed in certain ways or else the mic won't work. As the days past on it got worse and worse. 7 months later and the wire cover is now out because it couldn't hold stably inside the box and It takes 5-10 minutes to find the right position for the mic to work. Only 7 months! Not to mention, if you quickly take the ear piece out of your ear from rage, the ear piece could fall over and rip the wires and the audio won't work. This is a very cheap product that is over priced considering its work. I say you buy a Turtle Beach XLa, that's what I'm going to do. It's better preformance and better structured for only $5 more!
