La calidad de audio deja que desear por el precio que tienen. Dicho sea de paso, que me compré el producto mas por su apariencia y estética cuidada que por sus especificaciones, dentro de lo normal para el precio a pagar que, ahora puedo decir, es demasiado alto.
Potencia de audio insuficiente, ni poniéndolos al máximo de volumen llegan a la mitad de potencia en volumen q mis anteriores cascos

If there is one complaint, every once in a while you can hear some fuzz in your voice when starting to speak on the microphone, but this is hardly noticeable and not close to being a deal breaker.
Again, this specifies Xbox 360 above, but they aren't limited to that, and our version came with cables for PS4 hookup. Not sure if they work with Xbox One, though.
Headset is still working great. Others have complained about mic sensitivity and I saw one complaint about buzzing. I have not had any experience with either of these problems. The mic does pick up some outside noise, but no more than any other mics I have used.
For Xbox One compatibility--I still haven't tried these with Xbox One but I have read frequently that people have had no problem with these on Xbox One. EXCEPT, there is not yet a mic adapter. So you can use with Xbox one, but Xbox (supposedly) may need to provide a new cable to link mics on headsets like the PDP headset to Xbox One. The work around is to just use the mic on the Kinect for Xbox One while using your PDP headphones. Another reviewer reported that this worked well for them.
I'm especially pleased with the performance on Xbox One. I've tested two other headsets made exclusively for the Xbox One and the PDP Afterglow blows them away. I'll share Xbox One-related details at the end of this review.
Features I love about the PDP Afterglow:
* Separate sound dials: one for game sound and another one for chat. This is HUGE for Xbox One users because the controllers group both together and makes chat management a pain. Annoying players in Xbox Live game play? Dial-down chat all the way and you won't hear them anymore with the PDP Afterglow.
* Retractable boom mic. It tucks in and extends easily
* Like telephones, the mic transmits a small portion of your voice to the headphones. This eliminates the "talking with earplugs" effect.
* "Mode" button (just behind mic). By default when you turn on the headphones the sound mode is set to "Dolby 5.1 Surround Sound" and this is indicated by a solid blue light at the tip of the mic.
- Pushing the Mode button once changes that small light to solid red which means it's now in "Dolby 5.1 Surround Sound + Bass Boost."
- Pushing the Mode button a second time changes the color to solid purple, indicating "Immersive Surround Sound."
* Mute by tapping the center of the left earphone once - unmute the same way.
* Built-in rechargeable battery
* No wires needed unless you want to chat during Xbox Live gameplay. The charge stand connects directly with your TV's optical and HDMI ports and the sound signals are then broadcast directly to the headphones (up to 100 feet).
Slightly annoying feature:
* Small LED light at tip of the mic is annoying because you can see it from the corner of your eye
If using with the Xbox One:
* You'll need the "Xbox One Stereo Headset Adapter"
* In "Settings" under "Digital Audio" be sure that "HDMI audio" and "Optical audio" are selected
* You'll also need to recalibrate the Kinect once everything else is in place. Otherwise the volume will be too low. Do this under "Settings > "Kinect" > "Kinect doesn't hear me."
Once you do the above, you should not experience any issues with Xbox One use.
I've tested several gaming headphones over the years for Xbox 360 (and 2 others for Xbox One) and at its price point, the PDP Afterglow Dolby Prismatic Wireless Headset is at the top in terms of performance (and the LED lights are very cool, too).
I purchased previously an afterglow just clip-on bluetooth headset for a starter gaming device and was not impressed. I was worried that it was an Afterglow quality I would be disappointed in. These did not disappoint. Came with a ton of battery life, and easy to install. Here are the highlights:
Comfort: Could wear for HOURSSS. The actual ear cups are large and VERY comfortable. If ear cups are stiff and hit your ears they become really annoying and these are perfect. Very adjustable, and soft leathery/memory foam feel is a win for me.
Sound: I compared these to a 7.1 SkullCandy PLYR headset and couldn't tell the difference between 5.1 and 7.1 These sound stunning. Modes: Regular - sounds great, Bass Boost - gunfire and explosions are super rich, Surround (whatever the term was) - is like surround on crack. All modes of course have the 5.1, but the surround + mode (forget the name) is SUPER crisp.
Mechanics: Mic pulls out on a flexible wire to fit your comfortably, though I was heard loud and clear with it retracted fully into the headset. All controls on left ear are great. Volume knob at the top, Chat - Game sound control knob below that. Mode button on outside of ear cup switches your sound modes quickly. Hold the mode button to change the glow color (you have to redo this each time you turn the headset on unfortunately).
Plugging it in: Super easy. Plug in your optical cord for sound and your usb for power and you are live. My only complaint here is that the optical cord is extremely short and unless you want the whole stand RIGHT next to your console/pc, you need a longer cord. I bought a 12' and am happy with having it on display next to tv unit. I am glad it came with cords for xbox and mobile/pc gaming/music, too!
Overall: Extremely happy with purchase. Whole family and a friend vouched for this over the SkullCandy PLYR 7.1. Can't wait to take this everywhere with me for more than gaming...
The Afterglow 5.1 headset is, at first glance, solidly built. It accommodates even my rather-large head, and is extremely well-padded. I could see how this thing might feel bulky to someone with a more reasonably-sized cranium, but I really appreciated the fit and feel.
It's worth noting, at this point, that I am using this with my PC. Afterglow is kind enough to provide all the cabling you're likely to ever need, but the provided instructions are unfortunately sparse for PC users. PDP assumes PC fans are likely to grasp how to configure their own audio, it seems. It's a shame, given how detailed the other instructions are. Sadly, the PC section even redirects readers to the PS3/Xbox 360 sections of the instruction booklet, despite the fact that only two steps in either procedure actually apply. It's definitely an oversight, in my opinion.
The instructions harbor another gap in information - how exactly to pair the headset with its wireless dock. I was able to figure this out through trial and error, but some, less experienced (or perhaps less stubborn!) users are likely to be left in the dark. Nevertheless, after some playing with Windows' sound mixer, I got the unit up and running.
The audio is spectacular. Honestly, the sound is probably worth the cost of admission alone. This headset, if it's not providing true 5.1 surround sound, does an extremely good job of convincing you it does. While I am not convinced this headset will completely please die-hard audiophiles, it certainly impressed me. Regular users, like myself, looking for something to play immersive games (I tested it with Battlefield: Bad Company 2, and found myself physically stressed by how realistic this headset manages to make tank shell explosions sound), or listen to music are likely to come away extremely impressed.
The mic, sadly, does not fare as well. The sound comes off as barely above the quality of a cell phone. While it's far from the worst mic I've ever used, a purchaser might expect a little more.
Other strange glitches occurred with the hardware. I found myself unable to change the color of the LEDs on the sides of the unit until I performed a full reset of the device. I suspect these are fringe cases, however; I've had no issues with the unit since.
Let's recap, shall we? It's a solidly-built, beautiful-sounding headset with excellent noise reduction and neat, gimmicky LEDs. Those looking for the best mic in the headset world may want to think twice, but if what you're hunting for is great audio at a competitive rate, look no further.
I've used the headset with a Playstation 3, a standalone internet radio receiver, and an iPad mini to this point without any real hookup/set-up problems to speak of, and while the sound is pretty good in each of these instances, I do find that it's best with the playstation. (Perhaps that's because of factory pre-sets that assume this is the way this headset will be most often used?) I watched a NetFlix musical documentary (Muscle Shoals) and was happy enough with the sound of the music - but not overly impressed with it. I have other speakers that do a better job for music.
Overall, I think this is a good choice for gamers - but beware that the microphone is pretty sensitive because you don't want to be blasting into the ears of others, and that happened to me a couple of times. I generally like the design but do wish that wireless transmitter were not quite so tall; that's a bit of a storage problem for me.
