BUY THESE NOW. You won't regret it.

Amazing directional sound. It's not surround sound but it's the next best thing. Bad Company 2 comes alive with these headphones. Awesome bass in-game, but I haven't listened to music with these yet

The wire is a bit long but it comes with a velco strap to keep things wrapped up so it's not really an issue. The puck is cheaply made but if you're not a slob and take care of your stuff, it won't break


Consumer review by:



sounds good and the price on new egg is cheaper than any other place i have seen

long wires that can be tangled up easily and forced to use the av wires so game looks bad

Consumer review by:



Cheap material or not, this is the best option for its price range.

You can't go wrong with these for the price ; Great sound ; Comfortable ; Long cables and comes with any cable you could need ; Can be used for xbox360 & pc headset

Somewhat cheap material. I'm sure it will wear down, but mine are fairly new

Broke in less than a week, now I have to pay over $20 in shipping and fews to get my money back

Worst headset ever! JK


I was playing modern warfare 2 and this guy had ninja pro. I heard him perfectly. Also the other day, I heard the SCAR-H made a little buzzing sound when it reloaded.

Amazing sound, comfortable, and is amazing for its price

It's somewhat oddly shaped

pretty good BUT not wonderful


Overall it's a good headset but there could be some problems like with the puck. I decided to email Turtle beach about the problem and I still haven't gotten a response from them which is pretty disappointing. I wanted to buy another puck so I checked...

Loud ; Very clear ; Good Price ; Long Wire i mean SERIOUSLY its very lengthy

When i first bought it the headset made a buzzing noise which was irritating but it then went away after a few days ; Can be confusing to use at first but it is relatively easy to use ; Bad wiring job in the Puck and it made a really bad static noise...

Great Headset


There really isn't much choice other than Turtle Beach for gaming Headsets, they allow you to hear all of the sounds of the game with great clarity, makes a huge difference in COD and other MP games.

Great quality, much better than the built-in on my TV ; Comfortable, forgot they're there some times ; Easy to set up, easy to shift from TV to PC and back ; Long wires, comes with extension for USB also

Wires can get a bit cumbersome

Highly Recommend


When hooking up to an Xbox360 via HDMI use the red/white passthroughs and connect to audio output on TV this should enable the headphones to use the same audio as the TV is using and it won't disable the TV speakers. This was much easier than stripping...

Sound quality is very good for the price you are paying, great sound when playing xbox360 especially MW2. they are very comfortable to wear and lightweight the built in amplifier gives you the bass you need without overpowering the other levels. works...

USB for power is a little annoying but it's better than dealing with replacing batteries. Not really a con but a detachable mic would have been much better

Consumer review by:

overall ok


Cons continuted: cheap looking / feeling for a big headset annoying packaging the part that plugs into the controller is very weak and with minimal knocking (which is very easy to do) i guarantee you'll break it. just a horrible cheap design where...

long cord ; usb extension cable ; mute led lights red when muted, lights green when not ; compatible with both pc and xbox ; fits my 25 inch XXL head (barely) ; two volume knobs. one where your thumb would be (game voice volume), the other where your...

although there is decent sound isolation from the headset, in this case it can be a bad thing, because for some reason they made this so your voice is NOT coming into your own headset. so invariably you're stuck guessing what you sound like when you...

Totally worth it!


Totally worth it!

Great headset. Easy to set up. Sounds phenomenal. Playing MW2 I can easily hear people sneaking up on me. Very comfortable

Cord, but who cares. I kinda like having a hard wired headset with no static or hisses. When in a lobby on Xbox live I noticed that my Mic speaker icon that usually lights up when someone is talking is not lighting up when I talk. No big deal but strange

Product Specifications

Ear Force X1 amplified headphones give serious gamers the ultimate competitive edge by combining Xbox Live chat and stereo game audio into an immersive sound experience.

Pump up the volume without disturbing friends, family or neighbors. Hear every nuance of the game - from an opponent sneaking up behind you to your teammate's voice right next to you. Trash talk online. Block out distractions. It's everything you need for an amazing gaming experience.
