      After they briefly vanished from the website, I sent them an email asking if all was ok with my order. "Yes, he replied, will be shipped today" which was nice :thumbsup:

      I've never been that bothered about headsets and get on just fine with my Turtle Beach X12's. Having said that though, I am very tempted by these and fancy getting a pair. They look great and the fact that they are wireless is a big bonus compared to my X12's. I am looking forward to hearing some thoughts on them from some of you when they start arriving :thumbsup:

      Will these have separate volume controls for both game and chat? I'd imagine they will...

      Yea - if you look at some of the pictures - one side has the master control and the other has a voice/game control/ There is a Mute button and I think a VSS button (Virtual Surround Sound I presume?) :)

      I got another email from Amazon just saying sorry but it's not in their catalogue, whatever that means. Basically I don't think this is going to show up any time soon. VG+ sounds like the best choice at the moment if you want it straight away. I'm going to wait though.

      I'm waiting on GAME so I can use my vouchers. Their games are way overpriced so vouchers would be wasted on that whereas their hardware is a little more along of everybody else's pricing.

      Can you mute the mic and use them to play without broadcasting the room?

      It has side-tone which is good :):)

      Mic mutes with a press on a button, 2 levels of side tone plus side tone off. Also has volume/mic mix on one rocker & master volume on a separate one.

      Very good. Apparently they're nice sounding headphones and you can use them with your iPhone (not Bluetooth though - but by means of a normal 3.5mm jack). Might invest in them - better than walking around with Beats headphones (I personally giggle to myself when I see someone who got suckered into buying a pair of those).

      Interestingly enough I just picked these up and cancelled my amazon order. I had to tell 3 different associates they were in the back and to get them for me lol.

      I got them for 35 bones on a lightning deal and they are crisp without overpowering bass. I don't care who's name is on associated with them at that quality and price.

      Yes Det, stop playing with them and tell us what they are like :) Can you take a pic too of the USB stick in the PS4 so we can see how far out it protrudes?

      The usb stick is actually pretty tiny. Maybe protrudes about an inch if that. Probably the most comfortable over ear headset I've ever worn and I'm a glasses user most of the time so super bonus. They do fold up which is a neat feature and no chords for my wife to wrap around and ruin the wiring. Excellent!

      Very impressed so far. I need to download some audio files and test them out but so far the limited use of them the sound is superb.

      The build is really impressive too. I dont feel like they are cheapy in the slightest.

      Plus for the price I dont think you can really go wrong with them.

      Mega happy!

      So after about 3 hours steady use (watching netflix wired through my tablet) im a lot more impressed. I thought stuff was actually happening in my room and even caught myself checking a few times to see if people were moving about in my room lol. The directional (even through my crappy 2.5mm cable it came with (which isnt really crappy)) stuff really surprised me with how clear it was.

      I have I think 10 pairs of headphones that I use regularly that range from $30 to $200 and while I dont consider myself an audiophile I was blown away by the pinpoint accuracy with directions through Netflix of all things. And before you ask, yes I use all headphones as they all serve different purposes. Some I use more than others.

      But now for gaming I cant see myself using anything else. Not my tritton ax720 (not the best) and I'd pick these over my sharkoons if my wife and kids hadnt destroyed the wires and plug ins.

      Still havent had much time with its full range of features tho which im really looking forward to.
