Need a headset at the right price? Turtle Beach's X11s can do the trick

RA "Communication is key with online shooters, and with the amount of shooters coming out this fall--Battlefield 3, Modern Warfare 3, and Resistance 3 just to name a few--you'll definitely need a mic. If you're in the market for a headset and can't afford to spend much cash, the Turtle Beach Ear Force X11 headset for the Xbox 360 is right up your alley."

They have been on the market for some time but that's pretty cheap. Only weak points with them is the build quality and microphone.

If you have a higher budget I'd recommend checking out the Razer Chimaera headset.

Personally I would always go with the brands catered to audio engineers, You can't get a better sound quality and sometimes it can work out cheaper.

A good high end set of Numarks is a good example of fantastic quality with decent pricing

Beyerdynamic MMX300 are pretty sweet as well but they are a bit pricey compared to most gaming headphone choices.

I will pick up a pair sooner or later but I already own 3 different headphones (Sennheiser 650, Denon 5000 and Astro A40's) for gaming and only have one pair of ears.

I myself have had nothing but trouble with Turtle Beaches. I'm not going to ever be buying them again.

I'll check those out though.

I'm actually in the need for a new headset. I'll check those all out, thanks!

Turtle Beach headsets, i bought two of them a year apart from each other. Sucks for them though when Sony releases their cheaper $100 wireless 7.1 surround sound headsets.

GrumpyVeteran2640d ago

Logitech G35 is a pretty good headset overall, only problem I have is the ear piece plastic stuff is like...falling apart.

floetry1012640d ago

Not sure why they would mention Resistance 3 when the X11's only have mic capabilities on the 360.

I bought a pair earlier in the year and I have no doubt that they are some of the best, moderately-priced gaming headsets on the market.

respawnaction2640d ago

Oh, well in the post I also reference a PS3 set of headphones just to give that audience their option.

Sorry for the confusion.

MetalFreakMike2640d ago

They sell a USB adapter on Amazon that lets you use it with the mic. Someone on the amazon forum told me about it.

CraigUK2640d ago

Using x11 with the ps3 is nothing but trouble. I like to have the game sound coming out of the headset, and obviously I would like to have the microphone used as the microphone.

But what you cant do is have both the game sound and the voice chat come through the headset unless you change the settings on the ps3 to play voice through headset, and as you cant manually adjust the volume that the voice chat comes out of the headsets with the chat dial anymore you frequently get times where you cant hear the person you want to talk to.
