PS3 Ear Force P11 Headset,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: PS3 Ear Force P11 Amplified Stereo Gaming Headset (Video Game)
PS3 Ear Force P11 Headset is very light and effective. Chats are clear, sounds are clear, minimal noise from mic. I asked people in the lobby and they said they couldn't hear any static or noise and my voice was clear. I could see me breaking this headset very easily; so I'll have to baby it.
I compared the Sony MDR-XD200 headphones to the Turtle Beach Ear Force P11 in Black Ops II. Both are clear but the Sony's are clearer. I'm guessing because the amplification is somewhat distorting sounds. Any pair of headphones will help you hear the enemy foot steps. Amplified headphones make hearing foot steps and detecting the direction of them, easier.
The control box on the cord feels cheap and looks like it'll break easy. I bought this headset for 39.99 + free shipping. I would not pay full price; but I think they are worth 39.99.
