Ear Force XO SEVEN
Quality Product !
This is my first time purchasing any stereo gaming headset and i wasnt sure what i wanted in my headset as far as features. But the general manager totally convinced me to get the Xo 7s he assured me of all my doubts and be was right. This headset is amazing its performance and audio qualities are great. Game chat is crystal clear and they are very comfortable for hours of gaming. Also they are very durrable and are made with strong stuff so they last forever. All in all if you want an emersive intense in game feeling than these are the best next gen headsets out there very pleased with my purchase and gamesfops help.
Im not going to get into all the small details about the headset but for the cost of having true 7.1 surround sound in a headset compared to the price of other headsets is spectacular. The sound itself is amazing; it really pulls you into whatever you are listening too. The complete (all but to the controller) wireless connection is awesome. No need for batterys anymore the power comes from whatever device you are plugged into. With the memory foam cushions you cant tell you even have them on. The one downfall is the lack of circulation to the ear, your ears will get alittle sweaty after a good hour of continuous use. Other than that amazing headset.
Great Headset, Very Happy 9/10
I bought this headset on sale for $130. I am glad I picked it up and very please with just about everything about it. The build quality is what you would expect for a $150 headset. The plastic is storing and durable and the build quality is very good. The cables are the best cables on any headset. Turtle Beach delivered on the build quality on this unit. The sound of the XO Sever is loud, crystal clear, and very quality. Just about any audio sounds good on this (Music, Games, iPod, Tablet, PC, XB1, PS4). I also bought an Astro A40 headset just to have an extra headset and something to compare the XO 7 to. The Astro's sound quality is a little better at higher volumes, but the XO 7 has a tab more bass and boom to it than the Astro A40. The XO 7 gets a little louder than the A40 when playing music. The XO 7 is a direct competitor to the Astro A40. You can't go wrong with the XO 7. You will love this headset for all audio purposes, not just XB1. Turtle Beach Deliveres here.
Cant hear yourself talk
I went in to buy a headset today, particularly the Polk 4 Shot. The store didnt have it so I went with what I believed to be an equivalent model, the XO Seven. Plugged it in only to find out that when you talk, it sounds like you're underwater because the 159 dollar headset doesnt come with the functionality of having your microphone loop back so you can hear yourself speak. This seems crazy to me when even the cheapest of headsets have this capability. I wish it said that it didnt have this capability when so many of their other headsets do because I wouldnt have purchased it but I guess thats the point. If it bothers you to not hear yourself when talking over chat, avoid this.
There could have been an unboxing video over these headsets. It's a beautiful and well designed box along with a phenomenal product. The sound is absolutely stunning and very immersive. I cannot explain how much more intense both BF4 and Titanfall are with this headset. I am very pleased with this product and would recommend them to anyone.
Everything I Expected
So far i REALLY like this new headset, the design is very nice, the price was..eh reasonable, and of course if it's from turtle beach you know its a great product.
PROS: Like nice and slim, unlike the x42 where the ear pieces where a little on the bulky side.
The ear rest are VERY comfortable, you can barely feel them at all.
Bass boosted. Love the fact that they kept the bass idea.
MP3 compatible, i really like the fact that you can plug up your iphone or any other mp3 device and listen to music when you're not gaming. Now that i really liked.
Changeable ear plates. I have yet to find any other plates but im sure they will be released soon.
No batteries! What better then having a headset that never dies! :D
CONS: It's wired. I do like wireless things being wired is a bummer.
Other then that i really like it. Still gonna see if its Elgato HD compatible so i can actually record party chat.
Hope this review helps any potential buyers!
first turtle beach ever had. I would not trade them for the word. the sound is great. mic on the headset picks up great as well.
I Take It Back About This Headset
I originally thought this headset was a great headset but I did not have a whole lot to compare it to from my experience. I got really irritated with static sound, the audio dropping and skipping, only stereo sound quality, and the mic going out. The noise isolation ear cups were nice, but I couldn't hear myself talk. Sometimes the sound the sound sounded alright like I was immersed in the game, but didn't happen very often. Two days ago I got the Astro A40 with the MixAmp Pro and it is better than any other Turtle Beach headset out there. Better sound quality by a long shot especially since it has 7.1 surround sound, more comfortable, and the design is better too. Now that's a professional grade headset. Never buying another Turtle Beach product ever again. From now on I'm sticking with Astro Gaming. By the way I went through two XO Sevens and they both had terrible issues. I got a refund and got my Astros.
Xbox one headsets
Turtle beach makes great products. But these headsets were suppose to come out on November 22nd then it was February 1st and now it's march 7th what is going on I mean come on the ps4 already has 15 different headsets. Would love to have one for the xbox one.
