    These nifty set of entry-level headphones from Turtle Beach is all I really need for sampling music for production. I'm not an audiophile by any means, but there's not much else I would need a set of headphones for. Gets a plus for gaming and the ability to be used with consoles. The lost star is for the microphone. It's easily contorted and feels like it could break.

    Have had these for years, I used them to play Xbox 360 games prior to my ascension to the master race. They still work well and have good sound clarity so no complaints here!

    I've had these for like 8 years and still work well, best $35 I've ever spent.

    My good ol trusty turtle beach X12 has held up for over a whopping 5 years now. They are super light weight, very comfortable to wear for hours on end and the sound is above average for the price of these things. I think they've since been replaced by the X14 but I really have no reason to upgrade.

    Broke on its own with no abuse in less than six months. The whole right side of the headphone broke off from normal use, not recommended.

    I had this thing for years when I was a console peasant. This headset has been dropped stepped on and used almost constantly for 4 years. It broke in one spot but some electrical tape fixed that.

    Headphones - The Headset is a leftover from the XBOX 360 era. It is a reliable, good quality headset. I will be upgrading it to a wireless unit at the earliest opportunity, but tor the time being, this is more than sufficient.

    This is a pretty nice headset with good sound quality. The cords are a pain though, might upgrade to a wireless version.
