Turtle Beach Shoots the Curl with the XO Three

This month, Turtle Beach has released the incredibly comfortable XO Three for the X-Box One.

These bad boys have an amazing amount of premium features making them a clear value for the gamer looking to step up a level or two in their current setup. A great example of the value is that the 50mm drivers givinh you 56% more surface area than a 40mm driver, which is great for my giant ears. The mesh ear covers are great for breathability and the leather head strap doesn’t leave a mark on my head from long periods of use.

After playing around with them for a couple of weeks, what I enjoyed the most is the sound quality Turtle Beach offers. I heard every footstep, every rustling leaves or screeching tires depending on what games I was using it for. What was a major added bonus is that the XO Three are also Windows and android compatible.

I was able to record several phone interviews with some of the clearest sound quality. No one believed I was using a gaming headset to conduct the interview. What I really liked, however, was that the cord has a volume adjuster, for those that like to run the cans hot, and allows you to turn the microphone off so you can rant and rave at the 13-year-old on the other side of the planet kicking your butt at whichever game you are playing.

At just $69.95, the XO Three is well worth the money spent. My only issue is that it only has a three-foot cord, which is not nearly long enough for someone like me who is overly animated when playing games as I’ve pulled them off my ears a couple of times, flinging the controller around.

However, with that being my only complaint, you can’t go wrong with the XO Three from Turtle Beach, which are available now.

KEY FEATURES:

  • Rugged, Comfortable Design – The XO THREE has a thick, rugged and robust frame with a plush leather-wrapped headband and breathable fabric-wrapped ear cushions that allow you to play for hours in complete comfort.

  • Surround Sound Ready – The XO THREE is surround sound ready for Xbox One so you can experience your games, movies and music with deeper immersion.

  • Large 50mm Speakers Hear every crisp high and thundering low with these large, high-quality 50mm over-ear speakers.

  • Crystal Clear Chat – Turtle Beach’s renowned high-sensitivity mic picks up your voice loud and clear, and can be removed when watching movies or listening to music.

  • Convenient In-line Controls – Convenient in-line controls place Master Volume and Mic Mute right at your fingertips.

  • Versatile Compatibility – Works great with Xbox One and PS4™ controllers with a 3.5mm jack, as well as with PC, Mac®, and mobile/tablet devices with a 3.5mm connection. Other Xbox One controllers require the Headset Audio Adaptor (sold separately).
