Turtle Beach Ear Force XP Seven Review


Check out any Major League Gaming event this spring, and amidst the myriad of illuminated screens and young competitors vehemently barking commands, you'll likely see a whole lot of black and white headsets with the number “SEVEN” written on the side....

Smooth, warm tone ; Clear detail ; Immense depth and dimension ; Feature packed audio control ; Cross platform connection ; Solid construction and design

Virtual surround less immersive than some competing models ; No wireless connectivity ; Slight lack of clarity in the top end

If you’re a serious gamer with a mix of media passions - and a bit of a control fetish - it’s hard to go wrong with the XP Seven.

Turtle Beach Ear Force W3

Wireless stereo headphones; decent audio quality; easy to set up; passthrough audio connectors.

Not particularly comfortable for long listening sessions; don't expect audiophile sound quality.

The Turtle Beach Ear Force W3 headphones offer decent wireless audio for a low price.

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...

In moments of good connections the sound quality of the Ear Force W3s was good, but such moments were few and far between. We must conclude that Turtle Beach's decision to go with an infrared wireless connection was not wise, especially in the case of...
