Seems like they're back in stock and at a pretty great price. I have a pair of these and they're absolutely awesome, perfect for the PS4 and Vita - really comfy and sound great. The virtual 7.1 surround sound is amazing in games like The Last Of Us and the P.T Silent Hills Demo. I'm sure Sony will release special audio settings for Destiny too.

Come with a standard audio cable so can be used on anything with a normal headphone jack.

The headphones are awesome. Gamestop are the opposite of awesome however and I will never use them again after the most pathetic incompetent service I received of 15 years of online shopping.

If you do use them pay with Paypal as they will help you quickly with any disputes.

Heard a few people who've had issues but I got my PS4 from there and TLOU (seperate occasions, months apart) and both came really quickly with no issues whatsoever. My brother and housemate also got PS4s from there and had no issues. So from my experience they've been pretty good.

But yep, Paypal is always a good way to go.

This is sound advice ..... See what I did there?

Well, I've still never played TLOU on PS4 because of these lying idiots who would answer my questions by email immediately before I purchased but as soon as I made a purchase I never heard from them again until I raised a Paypal dispute 3 weeks later and Paypal refunded me the next day.

Apparently my game was lost by Royal Mail AND the reason I never got my DLC codes OR a dispatch email is because something went wrong with their IT department. I must just be really unlucky, or these guys are lying unprofessional idiots.

Bravo!

Seriously though, these headphones are great. Especially if you have kids and you want to play immersive games after they've gone to bed and don't want to wake them with your sub. I've used them frequently on PS4, PS3 and even on my PC for playing films and shows on the telly.

I don't believe the 'back in stock' from Gamestop when they still haven't fulfilled outstanding orders

I have a pair too, build quality is excellent, sound is awesome, and they look cool!
My only niggle, and they of patched this by now is whilst I'm using the headphone all sound is directed to them and your tv is effectively muted, it's probably not a problem for most though.

Bought these headphones for £70 on Amazon.co.uk lately to get myself prepared for Destiny. I think they're awesome for the price.

I didn't like the style of these from the pictures. Thought they looked a little cheap and not as nice as the old pulse ones. However I was wrong. As soon as I got them out the box I could tell they were really well made and very comfortable. Sound quality is very good especially for wireless.

My only gripe is that they come with a USB dongle. Would have thought Sony would have had that built in as a feature. I know Bluetooth can't get the quality that these pump out. My ps3, ps4 and pc are in different rooms so the headphones get moved around a lot. Would have been useful if there was a clip on the headphones for the USB dongle to attach to.

Anyway bargain price. I got mine from Zavvi for the same price. Took 5 days to arrive.

At first I was a bit unsure of the dongle but it makes changing the headphones from PS4 to PS3 to laptop much easier,

My buddy bought a pair yesterday and they were despatched at lunch today. Looks like they're in stock and being despatched in pretty good time too.

Not sure why this isn't getting much heat. Hot from me!

I assume simply because it's Gamestop and not a decent company like Amazon, Shopto or TGC. It's why I cold voted anyways.

Ordered mine on the 21st, received today

Ordered mine 24th, not shipped and no responses to emails. Trying to get it cancelled now.

Exactly the same experience I had with Gamestop and the reason I tried to warn you in this very thread!!

Do you mind if I ask how you got it cancelled as they don't seem to respond to messages.

You ordered it on a Sunday, then there was bank holiday Monday, and you're saying it hasn't shipped yet on the Tuesday. Jeez dude, patience, it's been 1 working day and no doubt not even 24 hours since you emailed them. A day which every retailer across the country is significantly busier on due to an extra day of orders to work through.

My friend ordered Thurs and due to the bank holiday they arrived yesterday.

Thanks OP, just ordered a pair.

Still a simple communication shouldn't be too much to ask. Bank holiday or not there was no problem taking my money. Surely a response to my questions on the Tuesday wasn't too much to ask. Now today I got a response. They told me I would get a shipping email today and delivery tomorrow. Still no shipping information.

Perhaps I'm old (definitely) and a little angry at times. Still its not a lot to ask to expect to be kept informed when someone takes your money.

Definitely getting these. They look awesome.

HEAT!!!

Amazing deal, everywhere else has them at £75 or more.

Everywhere else would probably deliver them to you and give you some customer service if you needed them to, unlike these cowboys.

Great price. Thanks
I ordered them yesterday and they've been shipped already.

Question im hoping you can answer. Can these be used on PC with the mic wireless? Also do the phones sit over the ear or just on top? I know its dependent on how big your ears are but just a rough idea of if they are large enough to encompass the ear. I find the ones that sit on top of the ear painful to wear after a while.

I ordered mine a week ago or so and came in yesterday , while I haven't tried them wirelessly on pc I can say that the head phones are over ears quite comfortably , though it's tight when you hang it off your neck and of you decide to leave one ear in the headphone . Other than that the headphones are really nice

Did you go into audio settings on the PS4 and select the multi output option?

They definitely work wireless on a PC, they even worked on my Surface 2 RT tablet. But I must admit I haven't tested the Microphone, believe I'd read it does work on PC though. They sit over your ears, super comfortable. I'm with you on the ones that sit on top of your ear, they make my ears go really warm and painful.

Been looking for a pair of these - ordered!
Thanks

Not a great great head set. lack of bass and real power. comfy though. I paid 90 for them so maybe if I'd paid this much I'd be happier.


HOWEVER! !! DON'T BUY FROM THIS AWFUL COMPANY.They are honesty the west I have ever dealt with in every possible way. trust me. Sorry it has to be a cold vote because I think this place should be destroyed.

I kinda disagree with your review of the headphones cuz I think they are great and I paid more than 90 quid for them in Bangkok!

I agree 100% with your review of Gamestop though and I cannot wait for them to shut down and a decent company to take their place.

Awesme headphones, am currently playing Batman AA on PC and they sound great. Very comfortable after 4 hours play lol. Only thing is you cant tell how much battery charge is left like on PS3/4. Otherwise i love em
