Product Description

The Ear Force X4 wireless headphones push your Xbox 360 gaming experience to a whole new level with the thrill and realism of Dolby Digital 5.1 channel surround sound. Pump up the volume without disturbing friends, family, or neighbors. Freely move around as you play. Hear every nuance of the game – from an opponent sneaking behind you to your teammate’s voice right next to you. Trash talk online. Block out distractions. Feel the game expand all around you and become a better player. Conventional Xbox 360 communicator headsets compromise the gaming experience by covering one ear for chat, leaving only a single ear for game audio from the speakers. The Ear ForceX4 Wireless Headphones overcome this problem by playing both the game audio AND the online chat on a single set of high fidelity headphones. The result is the intense experience, privacy, clarity, and competitive edge of PC headphones on the Xbox 360 platform. The Ear Force X4 Xbox 360 Wireless Headphones let you totally focus on your game play and not become distracted by the noise around you. With Dobly surround sound pumped right into your ears, you can hear every nuance of the game all around you in a way that isn't possible when hearing it as background sound with speakers. In addition, because the Xbox Live chat is mixed in with the game signal, you can hear what everyone is saying right in the middle of your head, enabling you to communicate more effectively with other players. As a result, the Ear Force X4 can actually make you a better player. By combining the best of both worlds, avid Xbox 360 gamers no longer have to make the no-win choice between using headphones or talking online. When you’re ready to get serious about your gaming, it’s time for an X4.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good sound solution for gamers. July 23, 2008
Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I just received my Ear Force X4 a few days ago and have been busy "testing" it for several days now. I have played with it in Gears of War, COD4, Battlefield:BC, Rock Band, Guitar Hero 3, and more. I have played online and off, with voice and without. After all this, I am finally ready to give my opinion on if it was $200 well spent, or a costly mistake.

First, let me say that I have a bit more experience with 5.1 headphones than the average consumer. I have owned many, made by everyone from Kinyo to Zalman and Tritton. With this knowledge it carries some weight when I say these offer some of the richest and clearest sound of any of them. I hear details in the sound and a wider range than with any of my previous headsets. The 5.1 is also quite good, I can pinpoint where sound is coming from pretty easily, and the sound fields sound a lot more balanced than with something like the Tritton AX360. Finally, the bass is very good even without the boost enabled, with it on it can almost be overpowering. The sound continues to impress even when watching movies or TV, and the Pro Logic 2 is nice when you only have a 2 channel source. The X4's are easy to hook up, with Optical in and RCA in you can easily hook up any audio source for use with them.

Overall, I would say the sound is some of the best I have heard from a 5.1 headset. That isn't to say it's perfect, there is a very slight hiss at all times when the headphones are on. You can only hear it when there is no other sound so it's not detrimental, as you don't notice it while using them, but it is there. Honestly though, I'm not sure if it is really anymore prevalent than the hiss found in most of the other headphones I have tried. It seems like they all had this to some extent.

4.0 out of 5 stars great except for the hissing July 30, 2008
I will first mention that I have the Earforce X3's and had an issue with hissing that was attributed to the microphone feedback "feature" which allows you to hear how loud you are talking. The amount of feedback is not user adjustable so I sent them back to Turtle Beach to be tweaked. When I got them back the hissing was decreased but still present (I would have preferred they turn off the feature altogether).

I bought the X4's hoping they would have addressed the hissing and they had not. That being said the X4's have very good 5.1 sound. The hissing is at its loudest when the cable from the puck is plugged into the headphones. If I'm playing single player games I do not plug it in and they sound great. Even with the cable plugged in the hissing is only detremental when there is no game sounds or in a lobby and hardly noticeable in the heat of action.

A nice feature is the fact that I can receive 5.1 surround on my X4's and X3's at the same time which is nice for watching movies with the wife and not waking up the baby (and yes the X4's do sound better than the X3's in a side by side comparison over 5.1). Another nice feature is that it has an optical out so if I want to play the sound through my receiver and surround speakers I just turn on the receiver without rewiring.

Bottom line is for the price and the fact they work flawlessly through xbox live these are a great wireless option.

5.0 out of 5 stars By Far, the best Headset for the 360! July 15, 2008
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I have been a user of Turtle Beach headsets for a long while now. I love the Ear Force X1 headset for my PC so i decided to try this headset for my 360.

I received this in the mail yesterday and was completely blown away by the product. The earcups are very soft and comfortable. The setup took all of about 5 minutes from start to finish (You just need to remove the plug from the "Digital In" port on the receiver which took me about 2 minutes to figure out... yeah, I'm not too bright! :P) Of course, if you only have an analog A/V connection, you can work with that as well but the digital input is the way to go

I decided to break this in with another new investment I made: Guitar Hero III and let me tell you I was in awe by the sound! I then decided to watch my Wrestlemania 24 DVD and the 5.1 sound was crisp and clear. In fact, you could say it was too good as I completely lost track of time and before I knew it, it was after 11pm!

There is only 1 drawback I have noticed so far, you need to be in a clear line to the receiver otherwise you hear a little interference (Like white noise) in the right earphone. Once I turned the receiver, the interference promptly stopped.

Of course price is a factor ($200 is quite an investment), but this is quite possibly, the last headset you will EVER have to buy! I wholehearted recommend the Turtle Beach Ear Force X4 Headphones!

3.0 out of 5 stars Good sounding ... I am sticking with my X3's though. August 12, 2008
I have used the Ear Force X1, X2, X3 and now the X4's.
Each new model offers needed and welcomed enhancements over the previous. The X3's were nearly perfect to me. So I figure why not try the X4!

-Earcups are more comfy than the X3
-If you are watching Dolby Digital, Pro Logic, Headphone profiles they will enhance the sound.

-The Stand, it can ONLY stand up. And the little headphone holder sticking out of the top can NOT be removed
-For anyone watching Movies that are in DTS, or pretty much anything on Blu-Ray or HD-DVD, these will not do a thing for you besides give you stereo. Audio can ONLY be in Dolby formats, but not Dolby HD that is on new bluray and HD-DVD.
-The sound is not very noticeably different than the X3's.

For half the price, go with the X3 and get equal quality.

Only problem is that with plasma TV's the white noise disrupts the IR signal to the headset. Works perfectly on any LED/LCD TV.
