    Terrible headphones

    • Written by from Frankfurt am Main

    The sound quality is fine and they're probably ok for games, but they have a killer problem for listening to music. If the music isn't turned up loud enough, the auto-shutoff feature shuts them down after a few minutes. This is massively annoying and makes them pretty much useless.

    I've read the Turtle Beach website, where they have a handy document where they tell you to blow in the microphone when you hear the shutdown message. Apart from being a really cruddy "solution", this doesn't even work. I've tried contacting Turtle Beach support for further advice, but haven't heard a word back from them.

    I did a web search to look for a solution. It turns out many others have the same problem across the range of their wireless headphones. The only solution I've found is to turn the volume up and wear earplugs under the headset. Pretty stupid, but it works. Considering how expensive this headset was, I'm thoroughly disappointed.

    One of my worst purchasing decisions in a long time.

    it is perfect when it works. I had it connected as turtlebeach specified in their manual. it works good for about 2 - 20 min. after that it just disconnect and stop receiving the audio. 50% of the time also disconnects the keyboard and trackpad (I do not understand this since they are using the bluetooth, while the I60 is connected to the transmitter via wifi). so I do not have a way to troubleshoot other than force power the iMac off. I would not recommend until they fix this. I contacted TB but still waiting for a reply, maybe it is just bad timing due to the holidays
