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

I have the PX5, works on 360 and PS3. Having a 4 year old and a woman who is up at 04:30am every morning makes this an essential purchase for me. I wear them when watching movies in bed, sound is epic not just on games.

Same reason people convince themselves they need to upgrade their iPhone every year.
The "Gotta buy what other people say is cool otherwise I'm not cool" mentality.

This has got to be the stupidest post on gamefaqs.

Heh look at some of these poor people calling people with turtle beaches spoiled, or avatar item buyers. They are soooo jealous it isn't even funny.

I have the cheap $30 Turtle Beach XLa's and they're a HUGE step up from my TV's speakers. Leaps and bounds better than the standard Microsoft headset/mic.

I'm not crazy about the idea of spending gobs of money on a headset, so this set suits me just fine.

They care about sound quality?

I don't own turtle beaches, but I did spend over 150 on headphones... Not for gaming, but for listening to music. The quality is incomparable to some other headphones, especially those pretty looking ones hipsters wear.

Some folks want to hear every detail of a game. Expensive headphones / expensive speaker systems will help with that.

Beats me, they seem useless to me. Every single time I hear someone with an echo from their mic they have a turtle beach. I also hear from people that have have problems with theirs all the time. Waste of money, unless you want an echoey piece of garbage that breaks down all the time.

I need a headset for both my TV and my PC.
