Nerd Culture – Turtle Beach Earforce X12 Product Review

Turtle Beach has been a manufacturing audio equipment such as headsets and audio adapters for quite a while and I can honestly say — I've gone through MANY of their headsets. Turtle Beach is like the Walmart of gaming headsets in my opinion. The audio quality of the X12′s is superb, definitely getting the biggest bang for your buck. The only down side is sometimes it can come off as annoying for there is sometimes some light buzzing in the background or the audio being picked up through the microphone will be to loud on the receiving end of other players or “listeners”. The good thing about this microphone set back is that there is also the ability to allow you to hear yourself through the feed back of the mic. This may sound annoying but really, it is a nifty thing to tell whether you are being to quiet or to loud. The lifespan of most of their head sets is maybe anywhere from 6 months to a year (I have gone through 3 X12′s over the last 2 and a half years) — but mainly the problem with this is that the plastic ear supports are often easily broken with little effort given. My current pair of X12′s has been broken 3 times but I have managed to jury-rig it back together with plastic and duck tape. Aside from the flimsiness of this headsets plastic — it is a comfortable headset for the long term. Certainly one of my favorite cheaper brands of headsets. For the overall price of 50$’s this is a great buy just so long as you take good care of it.

Pros

Great Sound Quality

Mic Monitor lets you hear yourself talk/gives feedback

Comfortable for long time usage

The code hooking the system to the headset is longer then on would expect — a great treat

The Bass Boost is an excellent touch

Cons

The audio feedback and overall noise is a bit touchy

The Microphone feed is touchy and can sometimes be to loud or produce whining noises

No clip for the inline amp/cord line

In conclusion I think that Turtle Beach pulled of miracles with their X12 gaming headphones for they are extremely versatile, well constructed for the comfort of the player and, for the most part, well designed for the long term. The microphone monitor and bass boost features of the headset controls are a great touch for such a cheap build and their high degree of overall comfort allows for one to sit for long gaming sessions with little to no fatigue on the ears or head. The biggest surprise and probably the most pleasant was just how great they sounded — The sound quality is almost unmatched by other headsets around this price on the market. It’s hard to imagine wanting much more from a gaming headset of this tier, especially at a ridiculously reasonable price.
