I didn't expect them to sound so quiet when I first put them on. I thought that they would not be loud enough for me to use. But when I got into the game and it's a perfect volume. I have an Xbox One and I play WW2 almost nightly on it. And I've never had a heads up before. When I put it on I could actually hear when people were to the left of me and the right of me which was really cool and it help me improve my game tremendously I would recommend these for anyone who is a gamer because the price point is pretty decent considering how much the typical super headphones cost for your average run-of-the-mill gamer they work out really well.
