Feature-Rich Gaming Headset Is (Ear) Force to Be Reckoned With


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

Turtle Beach Ear Force PX5


When it comes to the Xbox 360 and PS3, the headset selection has been fairly basic. There are some good units out there to be sure, but there hasn't been that one headset that is the choice for the hardcore and professional gamers, that one headset to...

Over a dozen presets, great sound isolation ; Durable ; Can also operate as a Bluetooth headset for a phone or other Bluetooth design ; Amazing surround sound for gaming

High price tag ; Occasional interference from other wireless signals

Turtle Beach’s Ear Force PX5 wireless headset is not for everyone, but those who want the best gaming headset on the market need look no further.

Turtle Beach Ear Force PX5


Gaming headsets have certainly hit their stride in the market since the scene exploded a few years ago. Since then we've seen and reviewed countless headsets and headphones, all ranging from stereo to surround sound, digital, audio, wireless, wired,...

The Turtle Beach PX5 is a fantastic surround-sound gaming headset that offers a huge number of customizable and default presets. It can even serve as a Bluetooth headset and connect with a phone or compatible music player

We experienced some minor interference with devices on the same 2.4Ghz band, like our wireless router. When using the PX5 as an optical audio pass-through, we had numerous audio dropouts. We also found that the transmitter is better left in the...

The PX5 is easily one of the best wireless surround sound gaming headsets we've ever tested. While its $250 price tag is high, the set should satisfy gamers for years to come. The software, however, won't work with Macs.

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

Battery-powered; leaks sound which can creep into microphone

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...

Amazing Bluetooth Headset


I love the bluetooth technology and great surround sound. It works really well with the PS3 console. The multi settings that your able to do right on the headset is a great feature. The two things that I dislike about the headset is the 2.4 GHz band...

software not Mac friendly and uses the same freq as my wireless router

TV viewing and video gaming without disturbing anyone!


I spent a lot of time researching wireless headsets to use for gaming from multiple consoles and TV viewing all in one. The PX5 has ALMOST every feature I wanted. Although it came at a steep price it IS WELL WORTH EVERY PENNY. I would like to see more...

The sound quality is only defined by one word, AWESOME. Set up was simple, my TV has optical out and every things goes to the TV via HDMI 1.4, just made sure that all devices had the Dolby single on the HDMI. The mic picks up sound great and noise cancell

The range is just a bit short, the PX 5 only has 2.4ghz, 5ghz would have been better. It does works in all places that the TV is visible. The lack of a rechargeable battery pack is a little odd, I bought a 4 pack of good enloop rechargeable batteries and

Crystal clear but poor surround and balancing.


I love the design of this product and where it is headed, especially in terms of an onboard DSP. However, without it the PX5 is just another close-ended headset with bluetooth connnection, and the DSP ultimately fails to deliver due to poor...

Great build, based on great philosophy. The DSP is a boon and really works well for games, producing a crystal clear sound (you can hear a pin prick). Bluetooth function is also a huge bonus

PX 5's DSP is awesome for games, but bad for movies because the default settings of the DSP sets the surround channels way too high and channel levels cannot cannot be individually adjusted (the crystal clear pinprick that worked so well for games became
