I’ve had two Turtle Beach headphones in the past and both of them broke, so when I got the Turtle Beach Ear Force X12′s to review I was thinking it would end up the same. A lot of gamers will have heard of Turtle Beach as its one of the most common gaming headphone manufactures out there, they have stereo headphones, dolby digital surround sound, wireless headphones and more for all gaming platforms.

Product Overview

The design of the headset looks pretty average, but it defiantly has that ‘Turtle Beach” look to it. Its ear cups are slightly slanted to give it a more comfortable feel, inside the ear cups it has the turtle beach logo, it has a nice chunky head strap which is always nice. It has a non detachable mic which is very flexible.

The padding around the ear-cups are top notch, they are very soft and fit around the ear very well, I have wore this through some long gaming sessions and I have no problem with them being uncomfortable and for me its extremely hard to find a gaming headset that you can wear hours on end without taking them off to rest your ears. Also the ear-cups are very flexible as they can rotate slightly at almost every angle so it can fit nice and snug on your head.
