What customers say about "Features"
Turtle Beach Ear Force X32 Wireless Amplified Stereo Sound Gaming Headset
  • Great features and not too complicated like some of the others. Just good quality sound!
  • The chat volume is controlled separately from the game play volume, a feature we love
  • The wireless feature and the brand sold me. Turtle beach makes excellent headsets.
  • The 9 different combinations but we having terrible highs, almost no bass, synonymous to a mono-speaker sound.
  • The Boom microphone fails to have reasonable distance from mouth for comfortable speaking.
Turtle Beach Ear Force X42 Xbox 360 Headset
  • The chat audio is very good, with the boost function being retained from the X41 (if the game gets loud, it makes your friends equally loud to compensate).
  • The X42 gives you a 3-D surround, and the sound fidelity is amazing, even my older games sound brand new!
  • Excellent sound quality, surround sound and all, no wires to fuss about.
  • Headset is it still has to be connected to a controller through a wire if you are going to speak.
  • It will take some adjusting in the sound and chat volume for you to be able to hear the game and your friends.
