Why do people spend $100+ on Turtle Beach brand headsets?

What's wrong with using the standard Microsoft brand Xbox 360 headset and microphone you already have?

Stereo Surround Sound is WWWAAAYYY better than a mono single ear unit every single time, especially when that mono single ear unit sounds like it was made with 2 tin cans and a string.

Well, it can be useful to have all game audio comes through headphones, especially if you're trying to game quietly, and headphones can offer better quality sound than TV speakers.

But it's not worth that much to me.

Why in the world would people want a surround headset over a headset that you just hear voice communication on...

Because a lot of people like being able to listen to their games and hear everything. If you play late at night, or are in an area where you should be relatively quiet...these types of headsets are terrific!

Especially the surround sound headsets. A surround sound system in many apartments is a no-go..so you can get that and be just peachy.

Hope that answers your question TC.
