I then moved on to more audiophile cans like the Sennheiser HD600/650/555 HD-25, Beyerdynamic Darth Beyers and DT770/880, Sony MDR-F1, SA5000, turtle beach 5.1 and probably more that I am forgetting about. I've been there and done that when it comes to headphones but finding good headsets (since a built-in mic is so convenient) was the real challenge as there are plenty of overpriced trash out there but as well as extremely expensive quality headsets that hit +$300.
Finally, Turtle Beach addressed the majority of the problems I had with the so-called gaming headset.
They are comfortable, light, great mic, quality volume adjuster (no hissing), compatible with both my consoles, circumaural design (surrounds ears) and pc and they sound great with the nice addition of bass boost. So you can either have no bass to little or a ton of it. I also like the fact that it is an open-ear design. This helps with the soundstage qualities that give you the immersion when playing or watching movies. Also your ears will not sweat.
If I had to compare these to a more high-end brand I would say these remind me a lot of the Sennheiser HD555. They not only feel similar when I wear them but they sound quite similar which is a plus.
My favorite by far are the Beyerdynamic DT880 headphones but when it comes to something reliable that gets the job done, I will look to my X12 as my alternative and main headphones when on a tight budget.
You really cannot go wrong picking these up...
I have nothing to say about the sound. That isn't the problem.
These headsets break way too easily. The earpiece rotates on a little plastic pin molded into it. That little plastic pin will break with very little force, such as if the headset is dropped onto the floor. Once it breaks, there is no fixing it. It must be made of polypropylene, as epoxy won't stick to it.
A complete waste of money. Not a chance that I will ever buy one of these again, or any other Ear Force product made like it.
I contacted amazon and like I expected it was too far out of warranty for Amazon to do anything. I don't blame them, they have always been extremely helpful to me in the past. From what I hear it's almost impossible to actually get help directly from Turtle Beach on their "limited one year guarantee" and it seems they can only be contacted by email.
If I can actually get help with the headphone I will update this post, but for now it looks they were a complete waste of money. At this point I will not buy another product from Turtle Beach.
The second thing you'll notice is how comfortable they feel going on. I've got a pretty massive noggin and could probably give the Queen of Hearts a run for her money. As an academic, I spend hours on my PC writing papers and reviewing articles online usually accompanied by hours of Pandora Radio. The only difference now is that I find myself instinctively reaching for my X12s even if I'm just surfing the web. Even without music playing, they cancel a lot of ambient sound out and due to their comfortable feel are easy to wear at all times - dare I say soothing? They don't compress your head at all, instead simply "fit" over your ears and allow for different shapes and sizes.
The third thing you'll discover is the X12's outstanding compatibility with Windows operating systems and voice chat related programs such as Skype, TS3, and even the elusive Steam "Voice Chat". I've had no problems configuring the microphone and 99% of the time the headset is simply a plug-n-play device. You'll also notice a heavier feeling in your pockets as the X12 headset clocks in significantly less than some of the "fancy" competitor's products.Read more ›
