Turtle Beach Ear Force Z6A Review

 

IF YOU'RE A LONGTIME PC user, you might remember Turtle Beach as one of the original manufacturers of computer audio hardware—we're talking soundcards that competed with the best that Creative Labs had to offer. You might also have been dismayed in...

Poor bass response; a surfeit of cables

Turtle Beach Ear Force Z6A 5.1 Headset Review

 

Many serious gamers will have heard of Turtle Beach as they are renowned for producing some of the best gaming headsets on the market for both console and PC gaming.  Turtle Beach as a company have actually been around for over 20 years now so they...

Z6a turtle beach This is my first 5.1 headset

 

I would recommend these if you have a small head and are looking for 5.1 for PC only (I think only does stereo for Xbox, even with adapter)

Pros-- they sound great, mic is very flexible, Ventrilo works well, feels well made, solid, and cord is long enough, not too expensive

Cons---They are a little too tight on my head (I have a big head), irritates ears after long sessions, not enough padding where headset meets top of my head

Consumer review by:

Decent head set

 

over all fairly happy with the head set

Great sound ; mostly comfortable ; Ok price, I felt they were selling at a slight premium for what they are ; The surround seems ok, but its not perfect by any stretch, I guess given the fact they are head phones its decent

They don't feel very heavy, but my neck is slightly strained, may just need to adjust to wearing a large headset ; the biggest con is not the headphones its the mobo manufactuer cheaping out on inputs even though the sound card can handle 5.1 and a mic...

Great for a month

 

I purchased this headset directly from Turtle Beach in September of 2011. It stopped working the start of November 2011. After two weeks of emailing, each email took 2-3 days for response, a replacement amplifier was mailed. I waited a month and no...

Great Sound ; Comfortable

Front right speaker stopped working little after a month ; Mic stopped working about two months ; Loud eletrical popping noise after mic stopped working ; Customer service from Turtle Beach ; javascript:Biz.Feedback.RateProduct.Form.submit('display')

Lack of Software Brings it Down

 

Microphone Sounds Excellent ; Comfortable ; Nifty amplifier device controller ; Great (true) 5.1 Sound

Lack of software support to control the microphone EQ and other options -- most importantly, THE PLAYBACK SOUND MONITOR ; Anything the microphone picks up will playback through the speakers, while this is useful for vocal performers and such, it's...

This headset is great for any gamer, being PC gaming or xbox or even ps3! (assuming you get wrong connectors) These feel good on you're head, making you want to have them on after you're first time having it on!!!! As long as you take care of them,...

Great Sound ; Real 5.1 Sound ; Comfy ; Easy to get replace parts ; Sturdy ; Great Mic

None ATM

Works Amazing

 

Unlike all of the bad reviews of this headset breaking mine turned out better. The secret from making this last one month to a few years is be gentle with the chassis it isn't made of the best plastic but will hold up fine if treated with care. Beside...
