Turtle Beach’s Hypersound Glass speakers use a sheet of transparent glass to drive sound in a highly focused beam directly in front of them while being inaudible outside the beam’s range. Welcome to never knowing why you’re hearing ads all the time—our Blade Runner hell future has arrived.
Tech writing is a filthy trade, with crap gussied up as treasure, marketing sleaze, lies, corporate dinner dates, favoritism, and plenty of capitalist lucre. CES is the prom of it all, so we figured, why not just make an open trade: rub me and I'll write about you.
As the successor to the uber-popular Turtle Beach X11, the X12 headset has bigger speakers (50mm to 40mm) for better sound, redesigned earcups for more comfort, all while still staying at the same 60 bucks. Sounds good so far!
So here's the good news: Turtle Beach announced a universal version of their gaming-oriented chat headset. In stereo, it mixes your talking with your gaming perfectly, meaning you won't be shouting at your teammates (unintentionally). Here's the bad news:
The Astro A40 is the premier chat-ready 5.1 surround sound gaming headset on the market, compatible with Xbox 360, PS3 and PC. But unlike the Turtle Beach X41, it's wired.
The Ear Force X4 was a rare and wonderful product, the only Xbox 360 wireless surround sound headset to integrate voice chat smoothly into the mix. Now the sequel, the Earforce X41, is even better.
This photo? It's of the Ear Force X4. I liked the system quite a bit back when I reviewed it. Now, the latest edition of this Xbox 360 wireless surround chat-ready headset sounds even better with one really great update.
While we enjoyed gaming with the wireless surround sound headphones we tested in our Battlemodo, the major inherent flaw with the systems were their lack of voice-chat capabilities. Now Turtle Beach has announced the Ear Force X4 wireless headphones that combine Dolby 5.1 decoding and voice chat in a package that's…
While it's not packing the force feedback boom of Ben Heck's recently unveiled AudioFX Pro 5+1 gaming headset, Turtle Beach's latest 5.1 surround sound USB headset (also gamer-oriented), the Ear Force AK-R8, will sock your skull with dual sub-woofers and eight speakers. Eight, for real surround sound.
It's hard finding a good pair of surround sound headphones, but Turtle Beach's new cans are not only promising superior surround sound, but also boomier bass. The HPA2s have been fitted with a bass enhancement that they claim will make explosions and gunfire sound like they're really coming from a sub (as opposed to…
Ever spend five minutes yelling, "SIT! SIT! SIT!" at your DS only to have the other people on the subway get up and move away like you were a psycho? Check out this Ear Force D2 from Turtle Beach. This Nintendo DS headset includes both headphones and a mic, which means you can both hear and speak without bothering…
Now available is Turtle Beach's latest addition to their Earforce line of high-end headphones, the X1. These headphones are compatible with the PC or Xbox 360 through USB connectivity—yes, they do allow you to talk smack over Xbox Live—and are available now for $60.
Two noise reducing headphones from Turtle Beach, the company that trailed Creative in the sound card business as far as we can remember. Their ANR-10 and ANR-20 puts their extensive sound expertise into helping make that loud "foreign" couple on the plane just a little bit more bearable.
In an "A for Effort" attempt, Turtle Beach has failed at helping the gamer go completely wireless. The Ear Force x2 Wireless Xbox Headphones is a pair of stereo headphones that can deliver both game sounds and Xbox Live chatter directly through the headset. The base station will connect to the audio outputs from your…
Turtle Beach makes PC surround sound a snap with its Audio Advantage Roadie USB Audio Adapter. Just a regular little USB sound card that snaps into your USB port, it'll hook you up with instant 5.1 or 7.1 surround sound connectivity, as well as all kinds of outputs to connect your computer or laptop to a bunch of…
