5.0 out of 5 stars Quality audio at value price, 19 July 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I read through the reviews and despite the negative reviews I decided to take the plunge anyway, and I was pleasantly surprised.

Sound 5 / 5
The headset sound is excellent, everything is clear and crisp although even without the bass boost turned on the headset can seem to be quite bass heavy, this is possibly due to the large 50mm neodymium speakers but if you can over look that then this is one the best audio sounds to be had from such a low price product.

Mic 5 / 5
The mic quality is crystal clear without any muffles, crackles, distortions or other noises which would annoy others, tested in a party with 5+ friends and all verified. I could hear everyone perfectly clearly with no drops in audio and I could also be heard clearly, the mic monitoring is a godsend for those late night gaming sessions, allowing you to hear your own voice in the headset to avoid shouting. With this turtle beach adapter if you press and hold the mic mute button for a few seconds you will 1, 2 or 3 beeps 1 is mic monitoring off, 2 is slight and 3 is full thus allowing you to hear yourself in a mini echo in your earpiece.

Comfort 4.5 / 5
The headset itself is light to hold and has a snug fit on my head, the ear pads are comfortable and with my testing had no audio leakage, the headband padding is comfortable for short to medium gaming durations but anything longer than 5 - 6 hours and you may experience slight discomfort with the headband and it's padding.

Build quality 4.5. / 5
The adapter works wonderfully, the buttons have a nice rubberized grip so your less likely to slip even under heavy gaming duress. Despite being powered by the controller alone I found that the headset has more than sufficient power to keep it running for many hours, and the battery in my controller lasts for a good 6 - 8 hours before needing to be charged. The build quality feels adequate to me, I haven't found any creaking noises while using the headphones,

Overall 5 / 5
The headset was a surprising purchase and definitely left me with a smile on my face and a new enjoyment in the games I play, the sound of footsteps, guns reloading or even zombie groans or screams were rendered in stereo surround sound, it's not full surround but it does it's job incredibly well in comparison to my other gaming headsets including an XP500 headset, this is definitely worth the £38 price tag and performs as well if not better than some of it's more expensive counterparts a must buy if you are a discerning gamer on a budget or just looking for a decent headset for little money.

Update:
Using them for approx. 5+ hours per day since purchase, the right arm between the headphone and the headband got a crack in it last night (04 January 2016) while placing them down carefully on a cushioned seat while I went to prepare food and drink.

5.0 out of 5 stars Quality headphones without the high price tag, 10 Nov. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A good many features on this headset with the included option of connecting a mobile phone on a wired headset, I could not believe it to begin with, but this is a seriously decent contender for gaming headset on the market today especially if your not shopping with an unlimited budget, The mic quality is good but does feature a horrible buzzing noise when used with a wireless controller and play and charge kit, the bass function is not over the top and does provide much more realism to games, despite it being listed as a stereo headset when connected to a 360 it did output the sound in a more cinematic surround sound way.

Definitely would recommend this product to anyone on a budget.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gel cushion pad for comfortable pc use., 10 Nov. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Absolutely an amazing piece of kit, this simple yet elegant mouse pad is a must for heavy users and gamers alike, relieving the tensions that constant mouse usage can put on someone it alleviates the pains and miseries associated with mouse usage on regular pads, the crystal gel is exceptionally good as it does not deflate over time like other mats do and provides a good solid resting point for your wrist, if you value your hands and wish to avoid carpal tunnel syndrome and other associated problems, then invest in a pad like this.

5.0 out of 5 stars Quality keyboard at a respectable price., 10 Nov. 2014
This keyboard is a simple design but rather enhanced keyboard with good features like the led's which power down when the keyboard detects no button presses for x amount of time, also I've found this keyboard although it looks not to have both the forward and back slash it actually does, I am using it right now to type and the slash's can be found on the following keys.

This slash / is found on the key to the left of the right hand shift also labeled as ? question mark
This slash \ however is a little different to find and make display, it is found on the hash key to the left of the return key but in order to use it you must combine it with the right alt key otherwise it will not show.

Key presses feel fairly solid and responsive no clunky keys, the led's are nice and feature a power down function which is a nice addition and simply one button press bring it back to active functions, colors can be changed by the fn key and tab, while fn and escape alter brightness.

Overall I would give this keyboard a full 5 star review, No problems fast delivery and a good price.

3.0 out of 5 stars Small head and ears required!, 12 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this headset for late night gaming and while the audio is of a fairly decent quality, and the overall design of the headset is robust, it is not suited to anyone with a larger than normal head or above average ears as they do not have very much movement in them to compensate for this, the ear cups do fit over ears but make it very uncomfortable on the wearer after 20 - 30 mins of constant wear, I would not recommend these to anyone unless you have an abnormally small head and ears otherwise you will be setting yourself up for a world of pain.

Overall A good robust design with good audio and a decent build quality, but lacking in sizes for larger heads and ears, this is why I only give it a 3 star rating.

This product fits my needs and uses as a web browsing and gaming consumer and it hits the spot where gaming is concerned more so with the high precision mouse, for the price this is a quality product and should not be overlooked.

5.0 out of 5 stars AMD Overclocked A8 Trinity, 16 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This motherboard is exceptional, it ships with almost all the leads the aspiring could need with the exception of a Crossfire / SLI bridge lead, but not everyone will be running dual graphics so this is not a down point for me, it comes with full hd on board audio with HD graphics included on board with PCI express ports as well as 2 or more regular pci slots, also has 4 Dual slots which will help you overclock your memory, overclockable memory is required however.

All in all I am extremely happy with this product and would recommend it to anyone looking to build a decent system with the ability to future proof yourself a little bit.
