About this deal
The headphones themselves are very nicely made — they look good, feel great, and they’re comfortable to wear for hours on end.

The earcups are a little bit too busy with various logos, the flashing Bluetooth status lights look stupid, and they don’t fold up for easier transportation. Using this method, you will still get both game audio and chat audio by selecting this on the PS4 menu.But the biggest issue is that the Elite 800X doesn’t support voice chat on a PC or PS4, making them much less versatile than the older Turtle Beach Elite 800 headset.

This will replace the Stealth 520’s independent chat volume control with a different feature set, Master Volume control (game icon) and Variable Mic Monitoring control (chat icon), which allows you to hear how loud your voice sounds inside the headset so you never have to shout at your teammates or other players (unless you really want to). However, you will no longer have independent control of game audio and chat audio levels, and you will no longer have DTS® 7. And with the Elite 800 and Elite 800X’s bluetooth functionality, you can take it with you on the go!However, these are relatively small problems, and don’t majorly detract from the good work done elsewhere. It’s a headset that’s arguably most suited to games, but it’s no slouch with movies and music either, particularly because Turtle Beach has created specific audio presets for different types of media. One great feature is that the transmitter has optical audio passthrough, so you can still supply your speakers or amp with the audio and other people can hear the game even as it’s coming through the headphones.
