    Advice Lucid Sound LS41's Headset or Turtle Beach Elite Pro 2

    I'm just wondering if anyone owns LS41's or the TB elite pro 2's?

    I've always owned Turtle Beach but my TB X42's were starting to fail so i was in the market for a new headset.

    I tried the Razer Kraken Pro2's which were pretty poor Imo so i sent them back next i tried the Turtle Beach stealth 600's which were better but side tone in party chat was poor so sent them back.

    I'm now trying the LS41's which i think are pretty amazing but double the price, I'm now curious as to how the TB's in the higher price range compare?
    Has anyone tried either LS41's vs TB elite pro 2's

    Cheers

    Fairly sure they are not wireless on the Xbox as you need the 'Chat Cable'

    I have always stuck with Turtle beach only because the sound quality is superb and they are the only true wireless on Xbox one which is a must for me, the quality of design and materials used are total shit and they break and fall apart, this has always been an ongoing issue and they seem to have done nothing to resolve it, really pisses me off but I suspect they paid so much for the exclusive licence to Microsoft they just use the cheapest plastic etc they can to build them.

    Yeah BB chat cable is needed with the LS41's but my old TB x42's were chat cable connected so it doesn't bother me to much as i'm used to the cable, I've set them up with Dolby atmos and they sound better than anything ive used before. In fps games you can really pin point where the shots/movement is coming from.
    Which Turtle Beach do you own?

    Stealth 500x, sound is superb along with directional surround sound and pinpointing sound direction, I have had them replaced once with cracking and breaking but the replacement started going the same way so have them strapped and taped.

    For me I just can't be without the full wireless and find the cable to the controller a pain in the arse when I have had to use one and nearly always forget and the get yanked off my head or the controller goes flying when I get up to do something.

    Ha i have done that a few times....

    I have a large head and found the stealth 600's clamped my barnet way to much.

    I didn't think i would have so much trouble getting a new pair that compare to the TB x42's but its turning into a right mission. I am happy with the LS41's but can't help thinking the TB Elite pros might be even better..... Decisions decisions

    Currently using the TB Stealth 700 Xbox so that they connect directly to the console itself using the same tech a the Xbox pads. People say the chat is quite but you can adjust it up the Yin Yang plus I now use them on the PC with the little Xbox USB wireless adapter.

    Sound is amazing on them, active noise cancellation, supersonic hearing (thought it was a gimmick) but it does work quite well. Only thing that would make them perfect is a slightly longer microphone boom.

    I would say the LS41's were better quality sound than the TB 600's but that supersonic hearing was good for hearing footsteps.
    I still cant hear myself that well in the Lucid sounds headset whilst in party chat (side tone) and i cant seem to get it any louder so there going back....
    I was talking to a chap in the Game shop the other day and he suggested the arctis steels but after doing some more reading i have ordered the Astro A50's so will see what they are like when they arrive.
    I didn't realize how easy it is to return shit back to Amazon
