abunda_amazon_reviews Update: After 2 months of use, it constantly disconnects from my xbox. Its almost unbearable to use. Do not buy, I can only imagine what im going to lose reselling them. Overall the headset is really good, but I there are a few things keeping it from 5 stars. Cons: -It takes too long to turn on -It randomly turns off, which then takes forever to turn back on -It does not like to charge with the provided cable and several other micro-usb cables. Pros: -Comfortable -Good battery life -Friends say that the mic quality is great -Sound quality is great -Super easy to connect to all bluetooth devices i.e. phone, laptop, xbox I would rate the headset 5 stars but the cons are pretty annoying.

Last night, the second night I owned them, they kept disconnecting. I think they did it 5 times in a half hour. I'm giving up on these "gamer" headphones and I'm going to buy pair of Sennheisers.

I was specifically looking for headphones that can be used for both PC and Xbox gaming and this is the key! Pairing to the Xbox was as simple as pairing a controller. It also turns on the Xbox which was convenient. Pairing to the computer is simple too. You can use Bluetooth, however the quality is not the same. The mic through Bluetooth sounds horrible as well. HOWEVER if you have the Microsoft Wireless Adapter then it becomes a pretty decent PC headphones as well. The sound is great with no noticeable lag and the mic sounds clear like on the Xbox. There is one catch though, when you switch from console to PC or vise-versa, you have to re-pair the headphones to whatever machine you want to use. To me it's not a big deal as it takes 6 seconds to pair. Regarding sound quality, I think they are great. I'm upgrading from Turtle Beach 800x Elite and I think these sound better. They are way more comfortable and lighter on the head as well. The Turtle Beach just had too many options on the headphones and with the wireless base transmitter was too bulky. The only con I can think of is there is a limit to the volume and you can't go too loud with these, which will save your ears in the long run. So if you are looking for headphones that will work with Xbox and PC then these are the ones to get. They sound great. The mic quality is great. They are stylish and light compared to other bulky headphones.

Im very happy and Impressed with the Steel Series performance and durability. That being said a few days have passed since receiving the Arctis 9X wireless headset and i can already say its on point for being my favorite. They added a few improvement over previous models that are small but noticeable regardless.. It just makes for a better experience without issues. They added a Red LED light on the mic to easily see muted vs unmuted, no more confusion in game or on a phone call. They also moved the chat mixer/volume wheels to a less cluttered area so you dont accidentally blow out your ear drums. 👍 Fit and comfort are great with the ear peices and ski strap band. I already know i can wear it for years easily without any issues or parts degrading on me even if my spawn throws it across a room.. 😱 The mic is clean and clear when speaking no cracks or muffled voice. Battery life is still early to judge but no issues yet after hours of use. Shipping/Packaging was clean and easy to unbox, well protected for shipping. Im giving it 5 stars now because iv already tested the limits of the previous model with no problems. As of right now the time Iv spent using Arctis 9X and how it functions/performes I know its not just a premature assumption to give it 5 Stars early.
