These feature-packed headphones include more gadgets and gizmos than we ever thought possible, but is the listening experience anywhere near as impressive?
Costing more than an Xbox 360, these console headphones are not aimed at the average gamer. Intended for gadget lovers with money to burn, Turtle Beach has jammed an amazing array of technology into this package. Most impressive is the headphone amplifier/radio transmitter that doubles as a resting place for your cans. It'll accept an S/PDIF input directly from your Xbox 360 or PS3, which is then processed via Dolby Headphone support to deliver surround sound over the headphones' stereo speakers. There's a pass-through connection so you can still use your amp and speakers without having to swap cables, while the RCA stereo audio inputs will work with your Nintendo Wii. PC users can try using the S/PDIF connection, but we found the experience to be less than desirable, with terrible directional audio.
The built-in Bluetooth receiver on the headphones allow you to patch directly into your PlayStation 3 for VoIP support. Xbox 360 users are also catered for, with a small Bluetooth transmitter that plugs into your controller. You can even synch the headset to any Bluetooth-equipped mobile phone and the headphones will automatically switch to incoming calls, a handy feature for gaming surgeons on call.
