Turtle Beach: 

Turtle Beach had a number of headsets on show this year and OCC liked three in particular. First up is the Ear Force XLC for Xbox 360, which is an affordable yet high quality solution for console gamers. Priced at less than thirty dollars, this headset sounded a lot better than we expected it to on appearances. For a diminutive headset it had remarkably deep bass and also light weight and cushioned ear cups, which we felt would remain comfortable for extended gaming sessions.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The next headset we looked at was the Ear Force P21, which while designed for use with the Playstation 3, can also be used with the PC (using an optional RCA to 3.5mm adapter). It features an inline remote with independent volume controls for voice and game signals. Another useful feature is the 'Proprietary Chat Boost', which will automatically increase the voice levels during PSN chat. Like the XLC, the P21 was also very comfortable and surprisingly light too and is priced at $79.95.

 

 

 

The third headset we looked at was the Ear Force Z1, which is aimed at PC 'gamers on the go'. The cushions that sit on your ears are designed to absorb sound and other distractions when gaming, while remaining comfortable and light. The ear cups fold inwards too for portability, while the in-line remote is convenient and allows bass control. The headset is also suitable for use with Skype and Ventrilo and should be available for $29.95, like the XLC.
