Turtle Beach Launches Ear Force X11 Stereo Gaming Headset for XBOX 360, PC Gaming
March 03, 2010
Turtle Beach has launched its Ear Force X11 stereo gaming headset for the XBOX 360 and PC gaming. The X11 features improved sound quality and an enhanced ergonomic design. Turtle Beach designs high-quality audio peripherals for PC and video game platforms.
The Ear Force X11 is ideal for XBOX gamers who want immersive game sound and XBOX Live communication at a great price. It is a perfect choice for playing popular XBOX titles such as Battlefield Bad Company 2, Mass Effect 2, Bioshock 2, Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2, HALO 3, Left 4 Dead 2, Assassin’s Creed II, and Guitar Hero. According to Peter Ronick, Director of Marketing at Turtle Beach, the X1 has been the XBOX gaming community’s favorite stereo headset for more than 3 years. Ronick noted that X11 might prove to be even more popular with an improved look, enhanced sound quality and comfort features at the same affordable price.
The Ear Force X11 stereo gaming headset is visually compatible with the Ear Force X31 and X41 wireless headsets. It features a black and white design motif with circum-aural ear cups, a deep-cushioned headband and long, adjustable boom mic. The ear cups have been made larger with deep fabric-mesh cushions to sit comfortably around the ears. This feature enables enhanced game play for longer periods of time. In addition, the X11 features an extra-long 16-foot cable that makes it easy to move around the room while playing XBOX games.
The X11 features independent volume controls for game and voice signals to balance XBOX LIVE chat and stereo game sound; large, acoustically-tuned ear cups with 40mm drivers; integrated bass-boost to make deep-bass effects more dramatic by increasing the impact of low frequency sound cues and DC-coupled amplifiers to provide super-wide bandwidth down to 0Hz while eliminating the distortion caused by speaker-coupling capacitors. A microphone with a rugged, oversized, flexible boom is also present to accurately reproduce the gamer’s voice during chat sessions. In addition, a microphone monitor keeps gamers from raising their voices louder than necessary and avoids the “under water” feeling.
The Ear Force X11 can also be used as a PC headset due to its independent 3.5mm microphone and line audio plugs. With an MSRP of $59.95, the Ear Force X11 headset will be available at major U.S. retailers and at major Canadian retailers.
