Good deal for $20, but this headset doesn't work well with the model 1708 Xbox One controller, which is the newer kind that comes with the S and X (the OG Xbox One came with model 1697). With the 1708, there's an audible buzzing that others can hear coming from your mic, and occasionally (~once every hour) the mic starts building up a ton of static that others can hear, and it's really annoying. Requires a mute-then-unmute to fix. Really annoying when it's happening mid-game.
The mic works completely fine with the older model (1697), though, and also with a Turtle Beach Headset Audio Controller (HAC) plugged in to the 1708. Although, the HAC is ultra sensitive, so people can hear every little sound coming from the room I'm in, including my button presses.

My kids (10 &13) have been using the TB Recon 70 headsets on Xbox and have loved them. I'm happy with them since they've lasted over 6 months and now get another set for almost half of what I paid originally!
