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).
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.
Received these headphones for Christmas 12/25/2014 and as of 3/30/2015 I am forced to get a new set of headphones due to the left ear piece no longer functioning.
Now for the long version-
I woke up this afternoon, went over to my computer, turned on the headphones and noticed the always present (and ever so annoying) buzz that I had grown accustomed to over the months was no longer present in the left headphone. I pulled up youtube and clicked a music video suspecting something might be wrong to be presented with audio only in my right ear. I turned them off and on again, unplugged the transmitter from my PC and tried different ports, tried whatever I could and to no avail.
If it wasn't for the fact that these headphones only lasted 3 months I would easily have given them 4 stars (3 if I was in a bad mood). The audio quality is quite good and the different settings (such as bass boost and co.) are quite nice to have. Being a gamer who values sound heavily I loved these headphones. If it wasn't for the constant buzzing (which was only noticeable during quieter periods and is easily covered by actual sound) I would rate these 5 stars. They were great, I loved being able to change the color of the LEDs (though I was disappointed that I had to reset the color every time I turned them on), I loved the easy install (just plug in and go), I loved the audio quality. The only other issue I had is that the headband cracked very easily since it was made of a hard plastic on a piece that's meant to be rather bendable simply getting the headphones on my head (and I've never been told my head is particularly large) cracked the headband. I can't in good faith recommend this set of headphones to anyone, especially my friends.
Okay, Pros and Cons:
-Good Audio Quality
-Built in EQ options
-BROKE IN 3 MONTHS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
-Occasional feedback from other input devices (I type a key and I can hear a buzz in the headphones)
-Reset LED color every time I turn them off/on (minor inconvenience)
-Poor headband construction (seriously.. cracked the first time I placed them on my head)
-The built-in mic picks up audio from the headphones (which doesn't affect me but my friends on Skype or other chat services can hear it)
-Not the most comfortable thing I've ever place on my head (though my ears can be rather finicky about such things)
Disclaimer for Amazons sake- I did receive these as a Christmas gift so I don't know where they were bought from. I merely chose Amazon to post this since Amazon is a very popular site.
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.
