Pros -Sound quality is second to none at this price point
-Comfort for extended game play great
-Presets for the EQ are great plus you can make your own
-Removable batteries-See summary for more on this-
-Good build quality
-Game and voice sounds adj indv
Cons -Some static from router being on the 2.4 channel I was able to mitigate this by changing the channel on my router so this is very rarely a problem.
-A little heavy for extended gameplay, no more than others of this quality however.
Summary I have had this headset for over a year now with no problems using it a couple hours per night for FPS gaming on a PS3. The sound it puts out along with the Dolby processing is amazing clear and detailed. You are able to hear somebody pull the pin or reload a weapon from quite a distance not to mention the foot steps of approaching players. As I mentioned above I like the removable batteries, I bought rechargeable batteries for it and it is great that way you to do it that way you can never forget to charge and and not have a headset ready to go unlike built in batteries if you forget your up the creek. Overall for the avid gamer this is a great headset for the money.
Pros Not bad sound when it actually works.
Comes in a very attractive cardboard box!
Cons Plenty! Sound is intermittent and cuts out at random times.
Constant static over wireless.
Eats batteries, then gives a low battery warning about 5 seconds before it cuts out.
Construction is cheap and plastic quality is terrible.
Summary Probable one of the worst tech purchases I've ever had the misfortune to buy. AWFUL
I'm gutted I have to even give this 1 star. Abysmal doesn't cover it.
Pros The sound is great and the presets are wonderful.
Cons The joint between the head band and the earphones is cheap plastic that last at the most with constant use of 6 months then it breaks. I have gone thorough 3 sets. Sound is great but what good is when earphones dangle by the wires.
Summary Earphones breaking at the earphones connecting to the headband. this is the third set that I have received and all having the same issue. The first two were replace by Best Buy who were great). They cannot not replace these. I cann0t afford buy replacements every six months.
Sound quality is the best I have heard out of most of the other head set I have tried. I would brag about these headset if it were not that they have this design flaw and using thin plastic where is a substantial stress applied to the head set.
Pros The sound quality is only defined by one word, AWESOME. Set up was simple, my TV has optical out and every things goes to the TV via HDMI 1.4, just made sure that all devices had the Dolby single on the HDMI. The mic picks up sound great and noise cancell
Cons The range is just a bit short, the PX 5 only has 2.4ghz, 5ghz would have been better. It does works in all places that the TV is visible. The lack of a rechargeable battery pack is a little odd, I bought a 4 pack of good enloop rechargeable batteries and
Summary I spent a lot of time researching wireless headsets to use for gaming from multiple consoles and TV viewing all in one. The PX5 has ALMOST every feature I wanted. Although it came at a steep price it IS WELL WORTH EVERY PENNY. I would like to see more voice types for the spoken announcements become available and easier presets, although more game specif and pre-made presets are coming out. The ease of use of the PX5 and added Bluetooth pairing make it one of if not the best wireless headsets on the market today. If it is in or close to your budget (you might want to make room for it if you are considering something lesser) GET IT!
Pros Great sound, multi functions andwireless bluetooth connectivity
Cons software not Mac friendly and uses the same freq as my wireless router
Summary I love the bluetooth technology and great surround sound. It works really well with the PS3 console. The multi settings that your able to do right on the headset is a great feature. The two things that I dislike about the headset is the 2.4 GHz band that it uses and the software is not Mac friendly
