Turtle Beach Ear Force Z2 Review


Headsets and online gaming have always had a special relationship. Headsets give you hands-free communication and in-game audio all in one package, making them ideal for people who are on a budget, can't be too loud, or can't afford a full speaker...

Good build quality ; Good sound quality ; Solid appearance ; Fairly comfortable ; In-line controls are easy to use

Ear-piece fabric is a little too rough ; Slightly lacking in bass ; Slightly strong in high-mid tones

After just under a week of use, I can honestly say that the Ear Force Z2 is one of the more solid stereo gaming headsets I've ever used. Physically, they do not feel cheap, and I am sure these could survive the heavy beating of LAN parties and everyday...

Turtle Beach Earforce W3 Review


Console gaming accessories get another update as the Earforce W3s enter the marketplace delivering wireless audio to the masses for the Nintendo Wii.

For the design quality of the W3, I would have to say that for the average gamer this is quite a functional set, giving players the ability to have an affordable solution that gives solid sound without eating batteries and having a wide band of...

Decent sound but horrible construction


I'm using these because my wife got them for me when my last headset broke (ironically in the same place, different brand of headset though). Because I love her, I'm going to use these until they kick the bucket completely. But seriously, Turtle Beach...

Sound quality is fairly good. They are comfortable. Battery life is quite long.

The plastic arm that connects the ear portion to the head portion was cracking and broke. The other side is doing the same thing. The construction quality of these almost seem like they were meant to break after a while. The headset will spam you with...

Not Wireless.


Most of the headset functionality is there.

The automatic shutoff forces you to use it as a wired headset. After a few support tickets with the manufacturer I can be sure they will never fix this issue! It is supposed to detect sound from the game and cancel the shutoff but it just doesn't pick...

Don't waste your money


These would be great if the plastic construction wasn't total junk. Cost of replacement headset only is nearly as much as a complete new set.

Sound great, separate volume for voice and game sound.

Plastic arm broke when putting them on after a few months of use. Headset was not abused. Repaired the break and it broke again in a different spot.

Amazing quality!


It's important to note that the Phantom isn't XBox 360 specific. As long as you have a device with an optical port, the audio portion of the headset should work (the microphone is a different story). For example, I plugged the Phantom into my PC's...

Attention to detail Long USB charging cable Good sound quality

Thin optical cable Uses mini USB not micro USB

Sound Quality=Good, Chat =Great


My tech knowledge is higher in other areas but as far as sound and headphones I am average I did a lot of research before this purchase. All buttons back right not so great if your a lefty, mic on left side The master and chat volume is easily...

Good sound quality- multiple settings: Bass boost, vocal boost, etc. Great battery life- almost 15 hours as advertised and I use a longer cable that fits the settings of whats given (voltage) to use a 'pass through' if the battery is low since I only...

No Virtual Surround Sound as advertised The Bass and Treble boost can cause an echo effect. Biggest nuisance is the BLINKING LIGHTS on the sides of the headphones. There is no way to stop it from Blinking if it was solid then I probably could have...
