Full immersion into games with epic surround sound
Let me just start off by saying that these are the sexiest gaming headphones I have ever seen. The Turtle beach 600 for PS4 and PS4 Pro, what a beaut! The black matte finishes with the black glossy finishes between the ear covers, gives it that slick but mean look that you’d expect from a car, you could almost say these are the Lamborghini of headphones; sexy and sound like heaven (In love emoji from a mobile OS you are most familiar). Armed with a swing arm mic that turns on when deployed and switches off when put back into “park”. There are 2 buttons, a charging port, and 2 volume wheels but I will get to that in a bit!
The sound on these over-ear headphones are…well… oxytocin inducing. The SURROUND SOUND on the headphones is simply remarkable! I took this on 3 journeys: COD BO3, Fifa and Fortnite. Needless to say I had no problem on COD, with the voice and bass boost mode on, I could hear my party as well as the footsteps on nearby enemies. While playing FIFA though, I stepped into Anfield for the YNWA anthem and these headphones stepped up, crazy immersion into the stadium and the game. Fortnite, the sound was great, clear and loud (I like that) but after some research I found that the game wasn’t putting out the audio that you’d want to hear through these head phones (surround sound 5.1) , so I would say these beauties went 3 for 3.
Now, back to those buttons. This is something that really bothered me. These buttons felt really cheap in my opinion, absolutely no smoothness behind the button, feels like I dropped it and actually broke the button. They are hard press buttons, which is fine but I could never actually tell if I should press harder or just throw them away because I’ve broken them already, like I do everything else. The 2 wheels, now this is something I struggled with, not only is it very 2002 but I kept damn bumping it and the volume wheel would decrease and I would think they were dying on me! The second wheel is for mic feedback, in order to create that “noise cancellation” vibe…well it didn’t work… If you compare this to the likes of Samsung’s Noise Cancellation, then it basically is just feedback from your mic and cancels nothing out at all (Can you tell how disappointed I was?).
Before I end off, let me just say that this things battery is a beast, so far I’m going on a week without charge! These headphones are definitely on a new level compared to my old Turtle Beach P60 headphones, they look great and sound even better. The retail of these headphones will launch at rAge Gaming eXpo this coming weekend and I highly recommend grabbing yourself a pair from BTGames, where you will find these exclusively! Do it, just do it!
A Second Look – 11 October 2011
So, it has been a while since reviewing this headset and i got to say; Boy, was I wrong. Turns out, i was using them wrong and I feel really bad about myself. The Noise Cancellation is enabled when you switch on “Super Human Hearing” by tapping the power button, and the point of hearing your own voice through the mic is so that the Noise Cancellation doesn’t cut out your voice and you end up shouting at the mic because you cannot hear yourself.
Now that i have found out how to use this headset (My fault, not Turtle Beach), this is the most epic headset i have ever used in my life and unfortunately being a review pair, i have to return them, which I don’t want to do, guess ill go out ad buy my own.
