Product Category: Wireless Headsets / Headphones
Manufacturer: Turtle Beach
Where to Buy: Amazon [Affiliate]
Price: $149 USD
System Requirements: Compatible with the Xbox 360 and home theater systems.
Specifications: 50mm diameter speakers, 270g, >20 hours battery life with 2 AAA batteries.

Pros:

  • Very lightweight and comfortable for long periods of use;
  • High build quality, good industrial design to match the Xbox 360;
  • Microphone works seamlessly with the headphones;
  • Excellent recreation of Dolby Digital 5.1 surround sound.

Cons:

  • Fairly expensive;
  • Chat connector still wired to controller;
  • Muddy bass during loud scenes with deep bass;
  • Line of sight required for IR transmitter;
  • No low battery indicator, microphone volume suffers with low battery before speaker sound loses definition.

Summary: The Turtle Beach Ear Force X4 Wireless Xbox 360 Gaming Headset is a well thought out product that caters to Xbox 360 gamers, while still allowing home theater enthusiasts an outlet to listen to music or movies wirelessly and without disturbing others in their homes. It provides excellent Dolby Digital 5.1 surround sound and its integrated microphone and chat features allow for complete immersion during online chatting or competitive multiplayer games. While it could use some improvements, it remains a piece of hardware that I continue to enjoy using in my home theater. Read more...
