Turtle Beach Ear Force X12

 

Bargain-bin XBox headset, does its job, with some drawbacks.

All in all, the Turtle Beach Ear Force X12s are exactly what they’re billed as: an affordable (primarily) XBox gaming headset. It doesn’t stun, and it doesn’t disappoint either. While the distortion problem is real, and certainly more than a little...

Turtle Beach Ear Force X12 review

 

Bad gaming headsets abound. So can Turtle Beach's reasonably-priced X12 measure up to its task?

An affordable Xbox headset that delivers clear chat and bassy in-game effects

Turtle Beach Ear Force X12 Gaming Headset Review

 

I've had two Turtle Beach headphones in the past and both of them broke, so when I got the X12's to review I was thinking it would end up the same. A lot of gamers will have heard of Turtle Beach as its one of the most common gaming headphone...

Turtle Beach Ear Force X12 Xbox 360 Headset Review

 

Turtle Beach are one of the biggest names in the gaming audio industry and their products are favoured by gamers across the globe. We recently looked at one of their PC headsets – the Z6A, which was very impressive indeed. Going on past experiences we...

Surround sound requires costly external module.

Another impressive effort from Turtle Beach.

Pretty Darn Good

 

I got these locally when I sold my main I7 rig and put together a rig from some parts I had ordered here before with a 4670k and an I5 4670. My nice soundcard went with the sold rig, and I was stuck for now with onboard sound. I saw a pair of these...

Cannot beleive the high ratings

 

These are poor headphones because of the noise issue and lack of comfort.

The software works out of the box. No issues when you have speakers plugged into the rear of the PC and headphones in the front. Extra long cables allow you to use the toilet in the other room without taking off the headset. Your head will feel amazing...

The ear cushions on these are like rocks. I can only wear them for twenty minutes before I have to give my head a break. The sound quality is awful. The headset makes the audio sound like it is being broadcast over an AM radio station. I suspect the...

Very satisfied

 

I bought them to replace my old ones and xbox 360 headsets are hard to find now in stores. I wanted a good headset for a cheap price and this satisfied me.

Thats exactly the headset I wanted for the price. It is comfortable, the sound is great, the wires are long and the fabric is well done. This is the first time I try to buy refurbished products. I was a bit skeptical at the start but it turned out...

Trying to think about one, but cant find anything. It doesnt come with the original box, but its refurb so its expected

Broken Ear Cup

 

They need to fix this issue, I had 2 rma replacements now i am out of warranty so I have to buy another one!

Good quality sound

The ear pieces are held to the frame by a very small and very weak plastic swivel joint. If you drop them once and they land on the ear pieces they will break.

Cheap, but good.

 

I had to twist tie and stuff 4 ft of cord under my pc tower.

I have to give them 5 stars, because for the price they have served me very well. I have had my pair for nearly 5 years with not a single fault (i also take care of my stuff) The sound sound and mic are exceptionally good for the price If you want a...

Every pair of these you will buy will have the electrical interference static when you're using at high volumes, but only when no audio coming through. Cord way too long.

Worked for a while...

 

Comfortable for hours on end. Cheap for a headset.

Owned two of these because they fit that well and took exceptional care of both. Both sets were plugged in once and never relocated. The most abuse they got was removing them from stand to put on my head. The first one broke after 4 months/500+ hours...
