Review: Turtle Beach Ear Force PX5 Wireless Headset

 

Few gaming peripherals possess the reassuring utility of a wireless headset. Turtle Beach's PX5 surround-sound cans give you an extra tactical advantage.

Supreme comfort and great sound for epic gaming sessions, at least as long as the batteries last. A multi-tasking champ: lets you listen to your music, answer phone calls, and play your games on a single headset. Console agnostic (mostly) — works with...

Clunky (and frankly, unnecessary) software for adding more audio presets than you will ever use. Depressing battery life. Lackluster simulated 7.1 surround sound. Costs almost as much as your console

Turtle Beach Ear Force PX5 Gaming Headset Review

 

A new 7.1 surround sound wireless gaming headset that boasts an array of alluring features, but core audio performance that leaves much to be desired.

Turtle Beach Ear Force PX5

 

The Ear Force PX5 Programmable Wireless Dolby 7.1 Surround Sound Gaming Headset, or Turtle Beach's PX5 for short, is a powerhouse of a headset. That's not necessarily for ultra-high sound quality, but for the depth of customisability and performance...

Wireless with strong Bluetooth signal; Customisable audio; 7.1 Dolby Surround; comfortable

Turtle Beach - PX5

 

Imagine having a 7.1 high definition home theatre sound system clasped to your ears. Then minus the various assortments of speakers that would necessitate this and add in a cushiony, sexy headphone set. That is the PX5.Designed for all...

Sounds Great, but has its flaws.

 

I use it for my PC. I don't use the mic as it doesn't seem compatible. It seems to have a lot of extras that I've never used. The features may not be compatible with a PC.

Great sound. Good Range. Comfortable. Bought in 2011 and its still in perfect shape.

It runs on AA batteries. Buy some rechargeables and its fine. Rarely gives warning on low battery. It usually just shuts off. Shuts off after being idle for about 5 minutes. The Bluetooth signal interferes with my WiFi signal when downloading larger...
