Turtle Beach Ear Force HPA2 Headphones


Ideal for gamers, Turtle Beach's latest headphones deliver more bass, more comfort, and fantastic 5.1 surround sound.

Much more comfortable than the original Ear Force HPA • Great bass response • Can connect surround sound speakers and headphones at same time

Requires AC adapter • Must have a 5.1-channel sound card in your PC

We tested the gaming headset from Turtle Beach that turns your head into a home theater setup.

1 Year Later, Still Happy!


The inline remote for volume puts it right at your fingertips. An adapter is included so you can use this headset in conjunction with your external audio - this is HUGE. Overall, this is an amazing package for little $$. My big booming external audio...

Although I was skeptical, the positional audio is unbelievable. You can tell exactly what is going on in all directions. So much so, I feel at a disadvatage when using my traditional surround system now ; Incredible bass (once tuned) ; Clear mic -...

Out of the box, they sound incredibly dull. No bass response whatsoever. I had to turn the bass (and treble) up quite a bit in my Audigy control panel - then they are quite powerful and sound clean ; There is a severe design flaw in that the center...

Failed Mic


Bought a cheap $3 "laptop" gooseneck microphone to replace the defective one since I didn't want the hassle of RMA, etc. At first I thought phones were defective, but discovered, by plugging in only one channel at a time, that my sound card wasn't...

Excellent sound, good bass, comfortable

Mic crackled horribly and had to be replaced. Gaming for any length of time may mess up your hair due to stress relief strap

Worked great while it lasted


I'd highly suggest considering another brand of headphones. I was sappy enough to buy two sets of these, thinking "oh, well maybe the last one was just a fluke...". Well, two for two! TB already has about $200 of my money, and that's all they're...

Sounds incredible. The frequency response is amazing, and the adjustible levels on the controller make for an easy adjustment while in-game. I can tell you EXACTLY where anyone is (if they're moving)

CHEAP! The only thing cheaper than the materials used to make this headset, is the customer service (or lacking). It's pathetic how I was treated when I tried to see about getting a replacement with my warranty. So, I just threw the piece of carp away....

Turtle Beach


The headset sounds great, the softw foam is comfortable and my guild mates commented on how clear my voice was on Ventrilo (they did not know that I had bought a new headset). My voice is crystal clear now and the flexible micrphone makes it easy to...

This headset delivers. I have enjoyed using it since day one. I have read that 5.1 headsets are a gimmick. Put on this headset and walk through Nektropos forest in Everquest II. Take a jaunt through the forests in Crysis

The volume control is not responsive. Don't crank the volume quickly or your likely to get an earfull a second later

there for the long haul


i wish they made the main wire longer so the control box can stay were i put it

This headset has got it all great sound ,lots of twekable setings. I have had these for over 2 years now and they work just as good as when i bought them. very sturdy i have droped them several times(wires very long get cought under chair)

main wire is kinda short ,the unit that controls the volumes drags the cord to the floor. Tends to get ruffed up alot

Awesome for the gamer indeed.....crisp sound for the ears with a good sound card. Really positions the sound and helps in gaming! Nice Highs and Lows....speakers reproduce great sound...if you put these cans on your head and turn the volume up to...

Turtle Beach EarForce HPA2 Circumaural Multi-speaker 5.1 ch Surround Sound Amplified PC Gaming HeadSet


Highly recommend these for gamers. The surround is nice for picking up directional cues and the mic is great for team play. Music reproduction and dvd playback is pretty good too. Reasonable price and fast newegg shipping too. Can't go wrong here.

Couldn't ask for more from headphones. Good sound, surround works nice, even good bass when you consider the size. Mic is nice and loud and extremely clear. Quite comfortable, I wear glasses and can still wear these during all night gaming sessions...

The fabric covers seem to be prone to picking up cat hair and other fuzzy bits

Consumer review by: Happy KillMore (

One good, one bad.


I'd bought a slightly older model last year (mic doesn't have that lock that these currently have) and have been using it quite a lot. My wife didn't like the cheap sets she'd been using, so I got her one of these. After 4 months, the headband broke....

Soild sound reproduction. Just the right amount of bass. Comfortable, even for extended periods. Excellent mic

Pass-through cable doesn't work if your speakers and sound card are 7.1. Fragile headband. Not nearly enough positional difference between front and rear channels (hard to tell them apart)

Product Specifications

Designed for the serious PC gamer to better discriminate from where audio cues originate, the HPA2 feature true 5.1 surround sound with front, center, surround and subwoofer speaker drivers in each ear cup, powered by a multi-channel in-line amplifier. While most high-quality stereo headphones only contain a single 40mm driver, the HPA2 feature a 40mm front, a 40mm surround, a 30mm center, and a discrete subwoofer driver in each ear cup. These high-quality and large diameter drivers dramatically improve the positional cues that are crucially important during serious gaming.
