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 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...

Misleading

 

The headset has great sound quality, it's comfortable, the stand finally gives me a place to put my headset other than on the desk/computer chair

I found this in the PC headset section, and figured that the base of this headset would be bluetooth enabled for my computer. Yes, I order this for my COMPUTER. It was the worst setup ever, and I still need to go out and buy a bluetooth dongle which...

First set of gaming headphones

 

About the 2.4ghz interference. My first solution was to change channels. I tried ch1 through ch11 on my Linksys E2000. No luck. If I changed to 5ghz, the dropouts and distortion disappeared, but my iPhone/iPad lost wifi connectivity. My final solution...

Comfortable, a 3 hour gaming session made my ears a bit warm, but not uncomfortable ; Well made, I don't feel like I will break them ; Easy set up. I switch between using them on my PS3 and Xbox360. The alternate sound presets are cool, but I use the...

The swivels on the ear cups feel a bit flimsy. I have a really nice set of Sony monitors that feel the same way. That being said, I think if you refrain from chucking them across the room, you should be just fine ; The surround sound is not as well...

Awesome Headsets

 

I LOVE these headsets. Love the feel for them on my head and the sound they produce. Love the look. There is nothing more satisfying than hearing the reload of my guns on MW3 and the footsteps from enemies giving me enough time to react!! You dont...

Color scheme; Fit; Sound; Preset buttons; Bluetooth capability; INCREDIBLE difference in presets; Newegg price; newegg shipping

Doesnt come with the XBA Bluetooth adapter (XP500's do hence why I opted for these; Much cheaper this way with SAME specifications. Only difference is that bluetooth adapter and color) So not really a con
