I bought these for my brother for his birthday as he is gaming mad!
He has given me his feedback on the headphones for this review as I have only used them once or twice myself and do not know much about gaming!
The quality of the sound is 100x better than the normal xbox headsets you can pick up for £15, of course the price does speak for itself!
If you are a serious gamer then this is definitely worth the money, it cancels background noise well, and my friends have all said on the xbox they can hear me a lot better, without static and background noise etc since I got these headphones.
They are very easy to set up an use and the buttons on it all have pictures which tell you what they so, so it really is so simple to use!!
The sound from the actual games is also amazing, I play a lot of war games and they give you a real feel of the atmosphere because of how good the sound is
I would never go back to gaming without turtle beaches after using them, highly recommended!
Well, what can i say. When i first thought of buying a gaming headset, i immediatley thought of Turtle Beach, beacuse they're very popular and (as i soon found out) AMAZING quality.
First off, price. I think one of the best things about Turtle Beach is that they don't charge through the roof for their headsets, and the X31 is no execption. It is a serious piece of gaming tech and it's at a great value for money price.
Ease of use. From when i first opened the packaging, it itook me 5 minutes to get it up and running! It's that easy. Also, all of the buttons have handy pictures next to them so if you forget which one to push, all you have to do is have a look at the drawing instead of rummaging around trying to find the instruction manual.
Comfort. This Turtle Beach is the comfiest headset i have ever owned! They slip easily over my ears and don't cause any irritaion or itchiness.
And finally, sound quality. This is the X31 is all about, and is the main reason why so many people (myself included) purchased it. And let me just tell you now, it is superb!The quality is crystal clear, when you play games such as Modern Warefare 2 or Battlefield Bad Company it actually makes you feel like your in a warzone! And it['s the same with the Fifa series, if you close your eyes you could easily be right there in the stadium. It's that good.
So, to sum up, if you're thinking about buying a gaming headset but don't know which one to choose, look no further.Because they don't come any better than the Turtle Beach X31's
If you are serious about games, or simply don't wish to disturb your parents or neighbours with excessive sound levels, then you may want to think about investing in a headset. Sony and Microsoft do manufacture their own versions, but these are of pretty mild quality and i would recommend broadening your horizons if you wish to make a purchase of real substance.
Enter the Turtle Beach Ear Force X31 wireless headset. Now i know some peoples initial reaction will be of jaw dropping horror, looking at their £80 price tag, and yes that is expensive in anyones books for essentialy a pair of headphones. But i honestly believe you can justify the exorbant price tag when you truly observe the quality this headset has to offer.
Being wireless is obviously a plus, having endless wires from controllers and plugs and speakers lying around is something nobody wants to have to endure, and the Ear Force X31 eliminate this hassle. The range is also very good and their is not let up in in ear quality what so-ever.
In terms of comfort the headset is very well padded. I often play PS3 for up to hours on end, and i have struggled with annoying or uncomfortable headsets in the past that really begin to cause irritation after lengthy periods of time. Not so with the X31 though as they are both light and comfortable and really provide no discomfort at all.
The most appealing aspect of purchasing such a pricey headset however is the the sound quality, and boy o boy does the X31 provide ear candy. Sound is just amazing, both crisp and clear. Play any game and you will truly feel as if you are a part of the action. I play alot of FPS games and the headset just does a tremendous job in distuinguishing where each sound is meant to be coming from with regards to the action on the screen and translating that into a physical experience. Sounds that are meant to have happened behind you, truly feel that way, likewise sounds that are nearer or further away. For my money they hands down outdo any surround sound system for just the shear assault they can unleash upon your ears.
Another advantage is their built in chat function. Of course this is present with X box's original unit, but the X31 headset just provides such a superior experience. Gone is the fuzzy and distorted muffling of your friends and enemies, requiring you to consistently adjust the volume or strain your ears, and in its place a clear and decipherable experience.
Setup is very easy and the router is quick to install and position how you like, whether it be for gaming, watching television or DVD's it is an absolute breeze.
Aesthetically the headset is also very well designed. A sleeky leather finish on the head adjustment, coupled with the black and white colour scheme, really is pleasing upon the eye, and a vast improvement over the Sony or Microsoft's versions. Their lightness is also a plus making transportation between destinations a great deal easier than other bulkier headsets in the same price bracket.
For a shear emmersive experience you simply cannot go wrong with X31 headset. Yes the price is a little steep, so it does pay to shop arround for a better price, or even venture on to Ebay for a bargain. Cheaper headsets may offer the same experience, but believe me they won't, so bite the bullet and give the X31 a try, you won't be dissapointed.
