To start off, this headset has long wire that is good for if you are father away but it is a little too long and it gets tangled up very easily. It is made out of a good plastic material and it is pretty sturdy. When you need to take a break and put the XL1 around your neck, do not expect to bend your head because you can't. The part that goes around your ear does not swivel and this causes the headset to block your head. Now the speakers are very good and you have a 360 degree sound field. This means that you can hear everything on any game you play. For Battlefield and Call of Duty, you are able to hear footsteps, the bomb being defused and you can know when someone is sneaking up on you. Also if you want to listen to music and the game, the Turtle Beach XL1 is great for that. Just adjust the sound levels of both in game and music and you are good to go! The mic is a great high quality mic and your friends can hear you and you alone. This means that your friends can hear you but no family or friends that are talking around you.
There is also a sound and chat volume control that allows you to control the chat and sound volume. If you do not want to hear what anyone else is saying then turn them down or you can also turn them up so you can hear what they have to say. You can also make it to where you can hear the music and the game volume equally or one louder than the other. But it is kind of a pain because the control is like a small wheel that if you turn it quick then you are going to loose your hearing. It is really sensitive.
