Turtle Beach's Ear Force XP Seven Tournament Grade Gaming Headset will function with your PC through USB and also comes with an adapter to allow use on both consoles and your TV.  It also comes with an Audio Control Unit that is rather impressive looking and offers an impressive amount of control over the headset.  Along with mute and main volume controls you can actually control the volume level of the individual surround speakers, toggle between a variety of surround sound types and also functions as an equalizer with several presets along with manual changes.  If you are in the market for high end surround sound headphones then you should check out the full review at eTeknix.

"I feel a little privileged if I'm honest, this is our first Turtle Beach review here at eTeknix and while I'm personally more than familiar with the products Turtle Beach produce, having used a few of them myself in the past, not to mention selling them when I used to work in retail, I was stunned when I realised I was getting to review their brand new MLG grade gaming headset. Premium grade headsets are few and far between in the gaming world, each year you might see a small handful being released, more often than not they are revisions to a current model."

Turtle Beach is still alive and kicking bass

Old time techies will remember Turtle Beach fondly, as there was once a time when they were the only choice in sound cards other than Creative.  ASUS blew that market wide open and now we see many other manufacturers releasing sound cards, even if the majority of users now depend on onboard codecs.  Turtle Beach does still make sound cards, the Riviera being their current model, but they've also expanded into headsets.  The newest Turtle Beach headset is the DPX21 which is a package containing the PX 21 headset and the Ear Force DSS controller which allows you different connection choices as well as a host of controls.  The Ear Force has separate volume controls for the game and chat, and bass tuning, there are also two controls that tbreak suggests you avoid, one which is a sound ‘expander’ and an option to force Dolby-esque surround sound.  If you leave those two controls alone though, tbreak loudly proclaims their love of the virtual 7.1 surround sound and feel it is worth the $150 investment .

"While the name may evoke imagery of cute turtles and soft sunny beaches, for the techie among us, the name Turtle Beach only evokes one picture: kick-ass surround sound gaming headsets. And what a lovely picture that is. Turtle Beach have been at the game for a long time, making a name for themselves by churning out impressive, high quality headsets for the current gen consoles."
