When used as a PC gaming headset, the PX21 functions as two independent headsets in one package:

Amplified Stereo Headphones:
The green 3.5mm plug is used for sending the stereo game signal from the PC sound card to the PX21 headphone amplifier so you can hear game sounds, music and other sounds from your PC. The overall volume level is set by the Game volume control on the PX21 amplifier.

USB Stereo Headset:
The USB connection is used for mic and chat signals and appears as “Turtle Beach USB Headset” in Windows operating systems. This lets you assign the PX21 mic and chat in your game software as a USB audio device. You can set the microphone and chat levels independently with the Windows mixer software, as described elow. After configuring these volume settings, you can set the chat level with the Chat volume control on the PX21 amplifier. Note that each time you disconnect the PX21 from the USB port, the volume settings described below may revert back to their default settings. As such, you might have to go back and set them again each time you remove and insert the PX21 USB connector.

This headset is brilliant espcially if you like a late night game or two and dont want to wake the rest of the house but still want to hear whats going on around espicially for online multiplayer games such as 'socom cod' The sound quality is amazing saved my life a few times now on socom when i now hear people creeping up behind me.

They chat because it is through USB is crystal clear compared to bluetooth what a diffrence.

The cables are very long you connect it up using the playstation cable that comes with the ps3 I have my sound goto my TV through HDMI and sound goto the headset via the red and white cables from the original ps cable which also has a pass through so I can still connect to hifi at the same time so dont neeed to play about with wires.

You just set your ps3 to have multi sound output so it can also goto your tv at the same time so you dont need to change settings all the time.

Iv found since I bought this headset I use it even when i dont need to be quiet as it gives you such an advantage this may be diffrent if you have surround sound set up in your house I dont.

Would reccomend for any gamer that wants a headset with built in chat.

Has volume slider so you can easily change the volume of game and chat seperatley and also has a switch to mute your own mic.

Sits very comfortably.

Very clear set of headphones, extremely comfortable to wear, mike is easily adjusted and friends report the sound is good at the other end. Only slight negative is the amount of wires trailing all over the place but worth it considering what you get in return

The wire that links the headset to the volume adjuster is really weak and now i cant hear through one side of the headset unless i move the wire to a specific position. Plus one of the headset actually came off...honestly i was pretty gutted. It lasted me approximately 4 months before it broke. Looking at the other reviews mine lasted a lot longer than most..

A month ago I brought these headsets for playstation 3, for the first few weeks I enjoyed it while playing COD:MW2. After three weeks my right earside stopped working and know these to me have become absolute useless, I have been researching the internet and people are having similar problems, most of them im guessing have not posted after there month. Unless you have money to spare this is not worth its money while a simple £20 Headset from another company can do that same job just without the microphone. The reasons why they have become useless the sound quality becomes worse and worse for the longer you have it, its very delicate and looks cheapy, without both of the sounds coming from your left and right if I refer to Modern Warfare 2 listening for footsteps with on ear piece is absolutely impossible, as of for the first few weeks the sound was absolutely amazing and you could also use this on the PC. I strongly recommend not buying this as of the price is very expensive and in the long run it does not work. However the cable is long the Piece which controls on the black control is very heavy and the cable from that to the headset is really short. I be warned that these products may break very easily and treat it carefully. A honest and true review.

I bought these with a DSS 2 around June 12, they broke last month as my son removed them from his head, applying no more force than that required to take them off, the product 9 months ago cost around 25% more than it does now and with the DSS 2 was marginally more than the price of something like the Tritton 720's.

The sound is good with the DSS, the cable is thick and the volume/mic control box is well built but to be honest all of that is a waste of money if you cannot wear them because the very thin plastic joint has snapped.
Basically the connection between earcup and headband is thin plastic, made thinner by having a channel in it to make way for the wire, so a hollow thin plastic connection that seems to weaken and break with use (less than twelve months in my case).

Turtle Beach customer service is non-existant, I filled out a report as per their RMA instructions, got a standard response with no reference number or link to track my report, after a week I sent another which again has not been responded to.

If you have the money to spend on the PX21/DSS2 combination, dont, the Sony Wireless pulse headset is far superior at the same price on Amazon(providing your on a PS3 or PC).

If you were looking for a basic cheap headset (no virtual sound processing) shop for something else entirley, the Trittons in the £40 price bracket are a better option to me, although I never found them as comfortable for longer periods at least they have not broken.

Buyer beware - if your unlucky enough for them to break, you may not got any help from Turtle Beach at all, if you do YOU have to pay the delivery cost to send it back to them for replacements, just not worth it.

This gaming headset by turtlebeach is definately the unfair advantage and will decide who wins and loses in games offline and also splitscreen. From the sound of a person changing a magazine in their gun to the sound of airstrikes coming in your way by Harriers, this headset defines this in a clear and beautiful sound. Turtlebeaches past products that have mostly been compatible with xbox 360's only have been execellent, but now with the px21's they work for ps3 which really did encourage me to take a sneak peek, they look stylish and future proof for only £60 what a bargain. Unlike other gaming headsets like trittons and astros this headsets price makes it definately worth the buy, but the only thing about this headset which gives it only a slight but not major downfall is the hissing sound you get when there is no sound like gun shots and grenades going off because i mainly play call of duty. But don't worry this soon gets overtaken by the immense and crystal clear sound this headset gives out. If you are a serious gamer or a person who justs like to have fun on their ps3, and likes to feel like their in a middle of a battle or maybe in the drivers seat of a ferrari enzo and have (...) laying around, this would definately be worth the buy for you. Not to forget Amazon delivered within the days they said they were going to deliver in, thanks amazon.
