What customers say about "Key Specs"
Turtle Beach Elite 800 Premium Wireless with DTS Headphone:X 7.1 Surround Sound Gaming Headset
  • One of the best headsets I ever used. Very good noise canceling.
  • Overall, I love them. Noise cancelling really does silence everything else.
  • They have excellent noise canceling that can be turned on or off and you can notice the difference.
  • These are super comfortable and offer great sound and noise cancelling.
  • These are not noise cancelling headphones. Only the microphone is noise cancelling.
Turtle Beach Elite 800X Premium Wireless Surround Sound Gaming Headset
  • Decent quality noise cancellation. Recommend.
  • Noise cancelling is pretty good, there's a ton of sound adjustment features like superhuman hearing but I don't really use them.
  • It has all the required features, noise cancellation, surround sound, various modes.
  • Noise cancelling works very well as i cant hear my wife shouting for me when I'm gaming much to her annoyance.
  • The plates are loose. Noise cancelling could not remove it. It just vibrates to your inner ear.

What customers say about "Headset"
Turtle Beach Elite 800 Premium Wireless with DTS Headphone:X 7.1 Surround Sound Gaming Headset
  • They both sounded great. I do not recall if you can load custom presets easily on the 800's.
  • Otherwise the sound quality from these things is absolutely fantastic.
  • The sound quality is absolutely phenomenal.
  • I don't really use the different modes, I just use signature sound, but its nice to know that they are there to play with for certain games.
  • Terrible sound quality, sound drops, static, mic drops, or no function for mic at all and nothing I could do helped.
Turtle Beach Elite 800X Premium Wireless Surround Sound Gaming Headset
  • The surround sound is very high quality.
  • Been using daily for a few months now. Sound quality is brilliant.
  • As for the sound quality, it's just amazing.
  • Great quality sound with wide variety of presents selectable from touch sensitive ear cups. Deep bass and good volume, very comfortable.
  • Constant static buzzing noise only when worn at a certain angle. This doesn’t compromise sound quality but very annoying when not in game.

  • The mic(s) also appear to be clear, no complaints of not being able to hear me.
  • Microphone quality does not compare to previous versions with the mic. Awesome.
  • The mic is awful. My friends say it goes in and out and is very quiet.
  • When youre going to mute the mic, all of a sudden your audio preset changes to something that sounds awful.
  • Mic quality is awful, I get nothing but complaints about my mic quality.
Turtle Beach Elite 800X Premium Wireless Surround Sound Gaming Headset
  • Sound quality is superb easy to use and set up,the mic is OK can be heard fine,works with phone OK.
  • I have had no problem with the mic. My friends finding it an improvement over previous head set.
  • Having noise cancellation on turns off mic monitoring so that’s a bit annoying!
  • Although not going to lie, the mic is pretty terrible.
  • There was an issue with the mic. Some people likened the mic to talking in a tin can.

What customers say about "Features"
Turtle Beach Elite 800 Premium Wireless with DTS Headphone:X 7.1 Surround Sound Gaming Headset
  • Most importantly for me is one feature specifically. You can hear yourself talking in the headphones. I really like this.
  • They are a little bit tricky to set up and require a lot of menu settings be changed. There is also one weird feature but many options.
  • Top notch and comfortable enough to wear for hours. They also have a cool feature where if you wear glasses.
  • The features are awesome, love the Bluetooth, the one real bad thing is is has to be on the stand to charge.
  • Awesome features including bluetooth pairing with a smart phone. Tons of features and sound settings.
Turtle Beach Elite 800X Premium Wireless Surround Sound Gaming Headset
  • Completely wireless (no wire connecting to your controller) meaning you are no longer tethered to your controller, one of the redeaming features.
  • Can connect to another device via Bluetooth while still receiving sound from Xbox.
  • Perfect. Has a 3.5mm jack port so you can use them if you have no battery.
  • Has a micro usb so you can charge them away from the dock. I really like it.
  • Awesome. They have a mobile and windows app so you can control and change settings.
