I'm not exadurating but I am picky about my headphones... Turtle beaches have got to start making headphones for casual use. These are monstourously good. I love thebass contol settings as they can be changed according to your playstyle. It offers very crisp highs and a deep, rich bass that i'm astounded by. If you are a gamer, dont even think about getting these. Buy it. I have been using these to play music through my pc and its absolutely brilliant. the x12s really deliver in sound quality. Finally the robust feel and build means here probably going to last you a while. astounding!
