Turtle Beach Ear Force X12


As the resident A/V guy, I write reviews of all sort of equipment including TVs, Blu-ray players, A/V receivers, speakers, sound bars and iPod speaker docks. Yet, as I look around the office, I realize that this year I've tested way more headphones...

Great sound ; Microphone Monitor lets you hear yourself talk ; Comfortable for long-term use ; Very long cable

In-line amp and control located too close to head ; No clip for in-line amp/controls

The Turtle Beach X12 gaming headphones are versatile, well constructed and, for the most part, well designed.

Great Headset Upgrade !!


Mostly use it for gaming but listening to music is even better; this X12 headset is a great improvement over the X11 with more highs and lows and an adjustable bass that takes the sound in the game and really makes it lifelike....

Great headphones!


So far I am a big fan of these headphones! I bought them for gaming use on a PC. They seem well-made, the ear pads are comfortable but not flimsy like a lot of headphones are (the pads are usually the first part of the headphones to fail, these pads...
