What customers say about "Key Specs"
Turtle Beach Ear Force X11 Headset (Xbox 360/PC)
  • Very comfortable to wear, lightweight with soft ear cushioning make this easy to wear for long sessions.
  • The adjustable headband is great and the ear cups could do with being a little bigger.
  • Comfortable and easy headband adjustment. Recommended.
  • Comfy, very comfy when worn, and adjustable, hardly notice they are there after 10 mins.
  • My ears get very hot so I can't use sem for long time. Also there is a slight buzzing noise but it's hardly noticeable.
Turtle Beach Ear Force X12 Amplified Stereo Gaming Headset
  • The X12 is over the ear headphones and provide good noise isolation.
  • If you want a quiet place, just slip these noise cancelling headphones on.
  • The X12s have great noise cancellation, excellent sound quality, and are super comfortable to wear.
  • The problem is parents can't sleep when I have the tv on because of the noise. Now I have this and it works spectacularly.
  • They're not noise-cancelling, but they are noise-muffling. This is a con to me as I would like to hear things outside of the headset.

What customers say about "Headset"
Turtle Beach Ear Force X11 Headset (Xbox 360/PC)
  • They audio quality was brilliant with them and helped me and indulged me much more than normal TV speakers.
  • The sound is unrivalled by any of my other headphones, this is also due to the HD Sound.
  • Overall feel of the sound is very immersive , played CoD Black ops and NFS hot pursuit and both games sounded alive with good clarity.
  • This headset goes very loud. Almost as loud as a pair of speakers.
  • The mids and in-particular the high's suffer from slight distortion at high volume.
Turtle Beach Ear Force X12 Amplified Stereo Gaming Headset
  • The sound is great. As for buzzing, I have the headphones plugged into an amplifier with moderate volume.
  • The immersion of sound is spooky. I actually thought that someone had walked into my house so I took off the headphones.
  • Sound is spectacular! I play rainbow six siege, which relies on sound more than any other game out there.
  • These headset has clear sound that gives you all necessary information about the enemy position without over doing it.
  • There is no static sound on the headphones and the sound is crisp and clear.

What customers say about "Microphone"
Turtle Beach Ear Force X11 Headset (Xbox 360/PC)
  • Works very well indeed with a clear mic that picks up sound much better than other mic i've used.
  • With the goose neck mic adjuster you can find a good position to pick up voice and not breathing or ambient noises.
  • The microphone is flexible and picks up sound very easily, sometimes too easily.
  • Mic is very sensitive so you don't have to speak very loud.
  • On the PC the mic cancels out background noise well, voice quality is good.
Turtle Beach Ear Force X12 Amplified Stereo Gaming Headset
  • I looked for something that was inexpensive but still had quality sound and a decent mic.
  • My voice is very low, but this mic is second to none, picks up everything.
  • The sound is good, mic works well, they are comfortable, etc.
  • Mic does not disconnect, not a problem for me, but could be for some.
  • The microphone, as with most headsets in this price range, was pretty bad. The included mic cover was nice, though.

What customers say about "Features"
Turtle Beach Ear Force X11 Headset (Xbox 360/PC)
  • Inspired feature of the headset is the use of real-time playback of your voice in your own ears.
  • As you can control the chat and the game sound independently, it's great.
  • You get plenty of length in the wire. It's not any discomfort feel with wire length.
  • The ability to hear yourself through the headset is very useful if you have thin walls.
  • The only downside is the link cable between the headset and the xbox controller, its too short in my opinion.
Turtle Beach Ear Force X12 Amplified Stereo Gaming Headset
  • Simple and reliable and no batteries to change. I like it.
  • Separate chat and game volume controls (Plays game sound and teammate chat through both speakers).
  • Awesome. Hook up to Xbox (RCA cables with optional chat wire to Xbox controller).
  • Turtle Beach headsets have Microphone monitoring, nonadjustable but also very nice feature and in my opinion a must.
  • Pretty comfortable to wear and had the ability to control the voice volume and the game volume separately.
