Turtle Beach has sent word that their newest product the Ear Force X3 is ready for pre-orders and will be available around 09-05-07.
I've read thru, and listened to the video demo of these headphones, and I must say I'm pretty excited about the Ear Force X3 headset. Keep your eye out for a review of these awesome headphones in the near future.
If you're wearing headphones, it's hard to hear yourself speak, so you'll tend to talk louder. To address this, the Ear Force X3 incorporates microphone monitoring. Just like a telephone, the Ear Force X3 mixes a portion of the microphone signal into the headphone signal, so you can hear some of your voice along with the online chatting and game audio. This lets you easily sense what you're saying, but not so much that it's distracting. Mic monitoring not only helps you stop talking so loud, it also eliminates that annoying "clogged ears" feeling when talking while headphones are covering your ears.
Dynamic Talkback Level Control
The dynamic talkback expander automatically adjusts Xbox® Live chat levels during loud moments, so chat from teammates isn't lost in the exciting parts of your game. During normal game volume levels, the expander doesn't affect the chat level. As the game audio increases, the chat volume is automatically increased so you can continue to hear what everyone is saying. When the game volume quiets down, the chat level gradually returns to the normal volume setting. It's a simple solution to an annoying problem, and it all happens automatically – so you don't have to adjust anything!
The Ear Force X3 transmitter incorporates a stereo expander feature that spreads the stereo signal to provide a "wider" effect. This results in a richer, fuller sound than normal stereo – almost as if it originates from outside of the headphones.
The expander is most effective on sounds that spread across both ears, like rain, wind, and background music. Directional game sounds, like bullets flying across your head, won't be affected, so as not to change their positional characteristics.
The Ear Force X3 headphones incorporate a bass boost feature that produces deep, rich bass tones by increasing the volume of low frequency sounds – just like turning up the sub-woofer on your home theater system. This can improve your gaming experience by enhancing the sound of explosions, gun shots and other deep-bass sound effects to make them even more dramatic. Bass boost can be turned off with the slide switch on the headphones. You might want to do this, for example, when using the Ear Force X3 for listening to music that requires a flat frequency response for truer reproduction.
Chat and Game Audio Mix and Separate Volume Control
Conventional communicator headsets compromise your gaming experience by covering one ear for hearing chat audio and leaving the other ear for hearing game audio pumping from speakers. The Ear Force X3 overcomes this problem by combining stereo game audio with online chat on high-fidelity stereo headphones – delivering the ultimate gaming experience with privacy and clarity. There are separate volume controls for the game and chat audio levels, so you can easily balance them and never have to worry about missing a cue from your teammates.
Hear Voice Chat with Stereo Game Sound
Hear your teammates mixed in with the game audio and overcome the limitation of communicator headsets that block game sound from one ear.
