Turtle Beach Ear Force Z60 review

 

PC 7.1 Surround Sound headsets have had varying quality over the years, but does Turtle Beach's first foray in to DTS Headphone:X bring great 3D 360-degree audio and a very low price point?

Turtle Beach Ear Force Z60

 

The Turtle Beach Ear Force Z60 is a PC and Mac gaming headset which promises so-called “game changing” surround sound. Its DTS Headphone:X Surround Sound technology may be a first for a gaming headset, but it's not quite the "game changer" it claims to...

Deep, bassy sound ; Works with most gaming devices ; Great voice chat features

Lacking treble ; Too big and heavy for portable use ; DTS Headphone:X not better than other surround sound tech

The Turtle Beach Ear Force Z60 offers great features and good audio quality at under £100, making it a great choice for anyone looking to upgrade their gaming audio experience on a budget.

Turtle Beach Ear Force Z60 review

 

Are 60mm drivers the new gold standard for gaming headsets?

Surround sound that's more than marketing bluster ; Very adjustable

Not the best overall sound reproduction on the market

A good all-rounder, but there are better sounding headsets around if you sacrifice the 7.1 surround sound. The Ear Force Z60 is a good all-rounder, as you'd expect given Turtle Beach's previous cans. We'd hesitate to say it's overpriced, but you can...

Turtle Beach Z60

 

I would think that GAMING headphones from a brand I've heard about before would have much better quality than this

They're headphones.

I'd received a pair for Christmas, and before I opened a game up, the only problems I saw were VERY low volume, a tight fit, a super short 3.5mm jack cable, and a mic that rests on your face uncomfortably. Once I opened a game up, I noticed a HUGE...

Purchased while traveling and needing a new headset. Feel like a sucker for falling for the "Gamer" tag. Any gamer I've ever met would want something that could play at a much higher volume.

They are comfortable to wear or the ear cups can fold to wear around the neck. No special software was required to get them working in Windows 8.1 Pro or Windows 10 Pro

Poor Volume. Even at maximum settings, these headphones will constantly have you attempt to turn the volume up. There are four different "modes" from none, to game, movie and music. Each seems to change an EQ setting slightly, but none offers any...

I'm sure the headset is great

Beach Audio is the worst company ever. It's been over 3 months of waiting on a label for a return and even after they receive it they STILL don't send you your money. STAY AWAY

Turtle Beach Z60

 

Seriously the volume on the headset controller wouldn't really even make a difference from 0 - half way.. hardly any difference. If they increased the audio volume maybe it would be a good headset. I can't recommend it. Happier with no Dolby and louder...

Well they worked. The surround sound seemed cool? I couldn't tell if it was in the surround mode or only if I used the 3 presets was it in surround mode? The 3 presets didn't sound so great... mostly just echo sounding

Volume. And I can't stress this enough. Maybe it's with all USB headsets. I had the PX21 before they were plenty loud they plugged in USB for the mic and a green 3.5 regular plug for the sound. I could crank the sound this way. Maybe you can't do Dolby...
