1.0 out of 5 stars Very Poor Quality and white noise., 23 Feb. 2016
This could have been an amazing product. The build feels premium, the magnetic charging dock is very simple yet effective and the being fully wireless is great. Unfortunately, despite the nice packaging the actual headset is very very poor.

There is an audible hiss or white noise constantly even when a sound feed is coming through them. This is very distracting and gets worse as you increase volume. It is still very audible at low volume. The sound itself from the headphones is good with decent bass. The headset is a very very tight fit and creates pressure son your head making it very uncomfortable to wear for more than an hour at a time. These are not limited issues but rather design faults as I have tested two separate sets with both suffering from the same faults. Both the base station and headset were fully updated which didn't help. One of the sets had a squeaky headband so when you moved you head it creaked. Another issue was something making a clicking sound in the left ear cup when you move your head.

I have owned Turtle Beach X4s for many years and they sound better than these and don't have the audible hiss and are much more comfortable to wear.

In the end I got the Sennheiser GAME ONE, Open Acoustic gaming headset - black and haven't looked back.

1.0 out of 5 stars Dolby Surround Sound Does Not Work, 7 Feb. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this item to use with the Sennheiser GAME ONE, Open Acoustic gaming headset - black and my XBOX ONE. Setup was simple and involved attaching the console to the mixamp with the provided optical toslink cable and usb cable which were both very long. Finally the headset needed to be plugged into the provided Y adaptor and a couple of settings changed/confirmed on the console.

I was vey impressed by both the quality of the product and it's packaging as well as the amount of accessories provided. I should also note that updating the mixamp is very easy and is as simple as connecting the device to a computer and downloading the Astro Command Centre software from the manufacturers website. This is available for Mac and PC. Updating takes seconds and the software also allows you to create your own presets.

The device itself has four pre loaded press including astro's own mix as well as options for media etc.

Now the area where this item achieves it's 1 star rating is it's Dolby Surround Sound mode which i primarily bought the item for. Unfortunately when the setting is active all bass is removed from the sound and when explosions or wind are in the scene there is an audible tinniness or echo. Almost like watching video on a pre smartphone mobile. Turning this mode off solves the problem and a rich bass returns with no distortion. I have now tried this with 2 separate units and multiple headsets from different manufacturers and the issue persists. Further investigation online highlights this as a "known" fault that is affecting many people. Sure the mixamp works without DD but I can achieve the same thing (stereo sound) by plugging the headset into the controller of either an xbox one or ps4. Another issue being that there are two versions of this amp, one for xbox one (this one) and one for PS4 (the black one).

So unfortunately until the manufacturer delivers a fix (software or hardware) this item can't be recommended despite it's many positives because one of it's core features simply does not work.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great item., 5 Feb. 2016

Great item, this is my second. The first one is now two years old and still holds a similar charge to when it was new. Only not is that the battery is quite a tight fit on the Elite Controller. The cable is very long. I also use it to charge my PS4 controller.

The battery lasts for a good 24-30 hours of use and requires infrequent charging. The cable is long enough so it can be used whilst charging.

Excellent, very good price. Took me straight to xbox.com and redeemed the code without having to type it or copy and paste. There are two codes. One for EA Access and one for XBOX Live.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent., 2 Feb. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Excellent, Code arrived immediately and worked perfectly. The DLC was already downloaded as part of the 1.5 update so this was just used as an unlock token that gave me full access to the maps. As for the maps, 3 of the 4, in my opinion are very good. I don;t care much for Rise. Skyjacked is my favourite.

5.0 out of 5 stars Does What It Says On The Tin, 3 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Does what it says on the tin. A decent quality funnel and has a small removable filter which I was;t aware of until I got it which could be handy for some applications. I use this to fill screen wash in my car and it works perfectly as the nozzle is a good fit for the tank on my car and being flexible allows me more room to work.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Stuff, 3 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this as I was looking for something with a good freezing temperature and something I could mix myself. I had been using supermarket diluted stuff which would leave streaks on the windscreen and not clear much of the muck.

The Comma all seasons screen was is brilliant. The bottle has lasted me a long time. It cleans the screen perfectly and has worked well both diluted and neat. I just adjust the mix for the weather.

These scales are extremely accurate, very fast and very easy to use and adjust the settings. They usefully allow you to zero the scales with a bowl on them so you don;t have to worry about weighing the bowl first.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Case., 3 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is quite easy to assemble although the instructions aren't the easiest to follow. The case itself does not add much size/weight to the iPhone so that is a major positive. Touch ID also works very well with the case attached as does the touch screen although the plastic cover does;t fit completely flush across the screen leaving some ares with flex. This makes is slightly more difficult to use the screen.

The case does however seem very well made.

I've not tested it's waterproof capabilities or its drop durability but it does feel like it will hold up well and is very grippy in the hand to prevent a drop in the first place.
