    Hearing mixed reviews from people about a Turtle Beach headset?

    Well now i'm here to give you my review, and what i think about the Ear Force P21's
    everything is very loud and clear, great for any type of gameplay when it comes to war games like the Call of Duty series. With this mic you can hear just about everything except in Modern Warfare 2 some people complained about how you can't hear Ninja Pro, that is because you cannot hear your footsteps at all, people think that you can hear it because in (CoD4) you could hear Dead Silence.

    This mic will actually effect your gameplay, i used to have a K/d Ratio of 1.08 and since i have gotten the P21's it went up to a 1.11 and is rising at a high rate of speed. I used to get about 25-40 kills a game in demolition for Mw2 and now i'm getting about 50+ each game and a low amount of deaths. Because i could hear everyone's footsteps i was in a Sabotage and was forced into a Overtime (1 Life) i managed to pull of a 1v6 Clutch...That would of never happened without this mic, i'll admit before i had this headset i was terrible at any CoD game.

    Cool Features:
    Chat Volume
    Game Volume
    Bass Volume
    Expander-ok so the expander feature on this mic since the game and chat are coming through the same set of speakers you sometimes can't hear your friends talking, so the expander (When enabled) is great, Example: Talking to your friend car blows up beside you and you didn't hear your friend? Not anymore with the expander on when the game gets louder so does your friend.
    Mute Mic
    Super Comfy headset
    larger ear muffs 1. for comfortability 2. to block out, outside noise.
    Rotatable earmuffs so you can wear your headset around your neck when not in use.

    Final say:
    people always tell you to "Get the MLG Astro's they are so much better" In my opinion i think the Turtle Beaches are a steal!

    My rating 5/5

    Bottom Line:
    Astro's are to much money
    and Turtle Beach Ear Force P21's are amazing
    Yes i would suggest this to a friend.
    Great Mic worth the money ($79.95)

    No i have never tried out the A40's, although Im_NighTsesh has a great in-depth review on them.
    Also i've never tried out the Trittons this is my first actual "Good" gaming headset.
    The Trittons looked uncomfortable and even some of the reviews on them said that, the P21's are great as far as feeling goes.

    Lol no, pretty good. I've had it for about a month and a half and they still work good. I've accidentally tripped over the wire and yanked on it pretty hard but it still works good Smile

    It doesnt just make you better, it makes the game more fun because you do better.

    I have the X11's for xbox, and im the same, they're great! Not so much for me for demo and TDM but for S&Awesome face and HCS&Awesome face they are amazing.

    The only problem i have with turtle beaches is that they give me a headache after a while >.< cos its so loud Happy

    79$ is like 55UK money over here, so that is pretty good.
