4.0 out of 5 stars Good headset but should be better.., 25 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Turtle Beach XO7 Headset (Xbox One) (Video Game)
Good points: The sound is good from this headset, punchy, bassy, a simulated surround sound effect. I really like the headset for listening to music on mobile devices, much better than in-ear headphones. Being powered through the controller is a bonus, no batteries are required in the headset itself. It is a comfortable headset, feels well made. I like that the mic is detachable though I would have preferred to just be able to swivel it upright to a vertical position when not in use.

Some bad points: Getting the desired level for chat versus game sound can be tricky and a bit fiddly. When used for gaming there are occassional sound dropouts however these now seem to occur less after the latest update. The lead from the headset to the controller is actually a bit too long, it will probably lie on your feet if you are a 'lean forward' player. The ear piece cushions are a faux leather so in prolonged use they may naturally get a bit warm and sweaty. The biggest missing feature is that you cannot hear yourself speak through the headset. Some headsets do let you hear yourself and it is a really good feature, it allows you to regulate your voice and is a more natural experience. As this feature is missing I have a tendancy to raise my voice while playing. Sometimes I slip one earphone off so I can hear myself.

I've given it four stars because the build quality, general sound, no need for batteries and overall comfort outweigh the negatives and missing features.
