The Ear Force X11 is the perfect headset for XBOX gamers who want immersive game sound and XBOX Live communication at a great price.
With an in-line amplifier and separate connectors for mic and line signals, the X11 also makes a great PC gaming headset.Playing your favorite game with the X11 gives you a significant advantage because you can hear sound cues that are missed with speakers, such as the soft footsteps of an enemy sneaking up on you, or the click of a loading weapon in the distance. That means you’ll react faster and take them out before they take you out, giving you a competitive edge that can make the difference between winning and losing. You’ll also enjoy unsurpassed comfort during extended game play thanks to the large, deep-cushioned ear cups and rugged, lightweight design.
If you’re serious about your XBOX or PC gaming, then get serious about the sound. Move up to the Ear Force X11 and become a better player while experiencing your games as they were meant to be heard.

In-Line Stereo Amplifier
The X11 includes a powerful in-line amplifier unit with built-in volume controls to adjust the game audio and incoming chat levels. The amplifier uses DC-coupled technology for a wide frequency response, low distortion and deep, clear bass. A built-in mute switch lets you turn off the headphone mic when you don’t want to be heard.
The X11 amplifier incorporates a built-in Bass Boost feature that produces deep, rich bass tones by increasing the volume of low frequency sounds – just like turning up the volume on the sub-woofer on your home theater system. Bass Boost improves your gaming experience by kicking-up the sound level of explosions, gun shots and other deep-bass sound effects, making them even more dramatic.
It's hard to hear yourself speak when a headset is covering your ears, which causes you to talk louder than normal. The X11 corrects this annoyance with its Microphone Monitoring feature. Just like a telephone, the X11 adds a portion of the microphone signal into the headset signal, so you can hear some of your voice along with incoming chat and game audio. It’s just enough so you can easily sense what you're saying, but not so much that it's distracting. Microphone Monitoring not only keeps you from talking too loud, it also eliminates that annoying "clogged ears" feeling when talking while the headset is covering your ears.
Independent Chat/Game Volumes
Conventional communicator headsets compromise your gaming experience by covering one ear for hearing chat audio and leaving the other ear for hearing game audio pumping from speakers. The X11 overcomes this problem by combining stereo game audio with online chat in a high fidelity stereo headset, so you’ll get a better gaming experience with privacy and clarity. Separate volume controls on the amplifier let you adjust the game and chat levels, so you can easily balance them and never have to worry about missing a cue from your teammates.
Works with PC and Mac
The X11 can also be used to enjoy games, movies, music, or VoIP chat on your PC or Mac. All of the on-board features that make the X11 a great XBOX® headset also work on these other platforms. The cable includes separate 3.5mm plugs for the game audio and microphone signals which easily connect to your PC/Mac sound card.
Powered By USB
The headset amplifier is powered by a single USB port on your XBOX, or from a nearby PC/laptop or Mac - so there is no need to fuss with a separate AC power adapter or batteries.

These headphones work exactly as advertised. If you follow the directions and set your chat settings on Xbox to work through the headphones and turn the volume up to 10 you will not have any problems hearing voice chat without having to crank your chat volume to max, as a previous reviewer wrote. After a week and a half of using these for various games (mostly Bad Company 2) I would say the sound is decent and the controls work quite well. The game and chat volume controls as well as the mute switch are all on the little inline control box for ease of use. The cord is very long so even if you are sitting across the room it should not pose a problem. There is even a velcro strap for tying up excess cord. The earpieces are nice and big so they cover the whole ear instead of crushing your ears plus they are nice and soft, overall very comfortable. The mic boom is much better than typical ones found on other headsets. It's a little longer than most and flexes easily to get it exactly where you want, yet is sturdy enough to stay in place.Read more ›
Now, I am able to hear EVERYTHING. At first it was overwhelming, I hear things in the game I didn't know existed. I use the Ninja Pro Perk so my steps are silent, so that I can hear everyone else's steps. Now I can hear when someone is walking in a house, on metal stairs, or in a grassy field. I can hear "boosters" place their insertions and hunt them down. I hear silencers going off in the distance. I know when someone is to my left or the right.
The mic is great. I was previously using original Xbox headset and I had to speak a little louder than normal, which kept waking up my significant other. With the X11 mic, I can speak softly and people still hear. But the mic isn't sensitive, it doesn't pick up breathing even though it is an inch or two from my mouth. The mic is extremely adjustable, you may bend it which ever way you please.
I think the only complaint I have is the light hissing, which is why it gets four stars. You won't it hear during gameplay but when it is quiet, you can hear it. And I think I have gotten used to it. And if you're wondering, If had connected it correctly or something else I haven't thought of, I emailed Turtle Beach Support and they confirmed that the light hissing is due to the amplifier and the hardwired mic monitor. But if anyone else figured out how to get rid of the hiss let me know!
I've never used any other headsets before, but I am loving this headset. It's easy to use.Read more ›
