    This review is from: PS3 Ear Force P11 Amplified Stereo Gaming Headset (Accessory)

    The P11 headset brings quality at a fair price. It boasts many features that I look for in a headset, while keeping a good ‘bang for the buck’ price and not sacrificing build quality.

    ** THE GOOD **
    – The overall design for the P11 is fairly simple yet sturdy. The cuffs fit snug on my ears even with glasses!(soft foam earmuffs make a big difference)
    – 50mm speakers are a nice addition. You often find smaller 40mm speakers on headsets this price.
    – Sound quality is exceptional. These easily have performed better than my older Logitech headset and come close to rivaling my Sennheiser HD 515
    – Control Box is simple yet efficient. It has a MUTE button as well as MIC and GAME volume controls
    – MIC MONITOR!!! Such a nice feature. You hear your own voice in a subtle fashion so you know how loud you are talking which makes for more natural conversations
    – 12ft cord is nice especially when other headsets are 6-8ft . The extra few feet make a big difference

    ** THE BAD **
    – No XBOX 360 support
    – Frame itself is sturdy but might be prone to cracking if the headset is stressed
    – Requires 2 cable hookup. While this isn’t something new to the market the cable management Nerd in me goes bonkers! Not a negative just adds to wire clutter

    ** THE ULGY **
    – The belt clip on the audio controller feels very cheap. Be extra careful with it

    * Overall the P11 headset is a lot of bang for your buck. It has a fairly simple setup and works for both PS3 and PC/MAC. It brings very good quality audio to the table, larger/higher quality speakers to the mix, and a small army of features that will make any gamer happy. If you do not own a headset this is a perfect headset for a mid-ranged user. While it isn’t top of the line you are getting your money’s worth and will not be disappointed in your purchase.

    **NOTE: Setup is fairly simple. For a PC/MAC it is plug-n-play. Just plug the green audio cable into your sound card and then plug the USB cable in. After drivers are automatically installed you should be set to go (you might have to manually set the computer to the headset which can be done in Device Manager > Hardware and Sound > Sound

    – For a PS3 just plug the USB cable into the PS3. The stereo adapter cables then hook up to the Audio OUT of your TV and you plug the green cable into those or you can plug the green cable into the back of the PS3 and just mute your TV. Go into your PS3 accessory settings and change the headset output to the P11 device. Both PC and PS3 setups are very easy to do

    P11 vs PX21 what is the difference?

    The P11 is the newest model from Turtle Beach and boasts some “minor” changes to the design. Below is a break down so you can decide which headset is right for you

    P11 = PS3, PC/MAC
    X11 = 360, PC/MAC
    PX21 = PS3, 360, PC/MAC (universal)

    X11 and PX21 both use 40mm drivers…. P11 uses 50mm drivers and outputs a bit better bass. The PX21 has a 16ft cord vs the 12ft cord of the X11 and P11. The PX21 also has a flexi-MIC where as the X11 and P11 both use standard mic’s. The PX21 also has an option to adjust the Bass boost.

    * So overall if you own a PS3 and 360… you want a PX21. What it sacrifices is basically 10mm of speaker power but gives you a nice universal headset for around $10 more. If you only own a PS3, a PC or PS3/PC then you probably should get the P11 as you end up with slightly better audio for less money.

    **NOTE: If you have a “hum/buzz” on the speakers here is how to resolve it:
    — The audio output of GAME on the audio controller is set to high. This is noise being picked up from the volume being to loud. Just like turning speakers up to max w/o any audio source. Easy way to resolve it is by lowering the master volume in windows (mine defaulted to 94 which I promptly changed to 70). Then just adjust the GAME audio control on the clip on device until the hum vanishes. You should still have clear, loud audio but w/o the white noise now.

    **NOTE: For reference on the PC I set windows to volume: 70 (USB headset); my CHAT slider is about 70-80% and my GAME slider is about 50-60% Gives me loud, crystal clear audio w/o any noise.

    this headset is a great value. for only 60 bucks, you get very high quality sound for both your ps3 and pc or mac. one noticeable thing is the weight. these are very, very light. most of the time i forget i even have them on! the mic is very high quality; reception is clear on both ends. things sound spectacular on the ps3, especially bad company 2. footsteps are loud, gunshots are powerful, and explosions are very articulate with plenty of bass. overall, a great headset and a great value.

    This review is from: PS3 Ear Force P11 Amplified Stereo Gaming Headset (Accessory)

    Turtle Beach has been making gaming headsets for years. Yet I found myself P11 deserves to be one of the
    best headset made by anybody. I don’t like all glitters, therefore let me go into deep core first.

    PROS
    1. Good and matching design for PS3 (Black finish and red stripes makes it aesthetically impressive)
    2. Comfortable and light; after long hours bashing buttons, gamers with big headsets like this one would hurt themselves.
    However, due to its comfy and light measurements, no worries here! I think I could go all night with this baby! (No innuendo btw)
    3. Sound Controller, or AMP will make sure you to have maximum gaming experiences. You can MUTE anytime you want, and increase/decrease your chat volume. The Chat Monitor allows players to hear themselves so that way, player don’t have to yell.
    4. Sound Quality, it is good period Amped up and stereo is really good. For example, In CoD Modern Warfare or CoD Black Ops, I could hear much better now! I could hear enemies location, footsteps, cooking grenades, and etc. I would have to try this headset with GT5, DeadSpace 1 or 2, MW2, and my other games to realize its extend.
    5. Ergonomics, Seriously gamers, if you could buy Sony’s brand new Bluetooth microphone, why not buy this?
    It comes with TWO features you know. One headset and other crystal-clear microphone. The price is only $50 in Amazon. I believe retailers sell you for $60. It is only $10 difference or so. Yet it is so much better. Trust me, I was an once-a-user of Bluetooth. And I know the pain. haha
    6. USB powered, which means that you don’t have to charge your thing everyone time you wish to play some games.

    CONS
    1. Cheap Material? Well this could be subjective because for me, I think the stuff they used to make this thing, isn’t that cheaply made. Yet you better be careful with this baby because the top part and the earpiece connector seem to be … little not sturdy. So…
    2. Cables? Well come on everybody, it is just a another cable in your collection of tangled cables. Why not add a another one? Besides the headset gives you a long cord so, no worries here too.

    So at the end, I would recommend this one to friend or anybody who has doubts about it. You cannot go wrong with this one. Unless you are a really new to the system but sound quality, design, microphone, price and etc. overwhelms the cons.
    Now, I will go over some things that I have learned.

    Troubleshooting
    ***Very important use the PS3 AV Cables! Yes they are important, otherwise you cannot hear anything from your earpieces. Go find one from the box (every PS3 boxes come with a AV cable), hook it up to PS3 and the headset.
    ***PC users, don’t be alarmed. If you think your PC speakers still make noises? No it is not! It is most likely the P11!
    I could be wrong, depend on the PC’s models but I advise to check forums or such.
    ***Setting up is easy.

    Thank you for reading my review. One more reminder though, BUY THIS!
