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.
