I had a Turtle Beach PX21 Headset that finally broke in the course of 10 months. For a Turtle Beach, that's probably a long time. I was in a Skype call with one of my friends when suddenly the sound got super quiet and I could barely hear my friend talking. I thought it was his mic and he did too, until I started moving the wire around and the sound would go back to normal when I would hold it up. But that didn't last long and the sound just stayed distorted and quiet. I tested it by playing music through the headphones. I didn't think I could fix it and this was how my older headset broke as well. Plus, with the Turtle Beach, the right side was already falling apart.
