Great for Music/Film, Bad for game chat
on 11 August 2013
Bought these primarily for playing Battlefield 3 on my PS3.
They Sound great for Music/Film, and I was quite impressed by the 'Pulse' effect as long as you keep it set really low.
But, when using them for in gaming chat, the headset lacked sufficient 'sidetone' (even after updating the software) and reluctantly I sent them back.
'Sidetone' is the headset feeding of a bit of your own voice into your ears. This naturally happens in real life. Without it, there is a feeling of being bunged up and a tendency to shout.
Try talking with your fingers in your ears to experience this!
Went for the TurtleBeach PX5s in the end. Much better for gaming, the sidetone and everything else is fully adjustable.
