- The Turtle Beach X31 wireless headset uses 2.4Ghz digital wireless RF technology with powered analog stereo inputs that allows you to walk around the room with your headphones on and not have to worry about "line of sight" or the dropping of the audio signals that you get. This enables you to get clear sound quality that is noise free and can be easily compared to wired headphones that deliver similar results.Get your soda between rounds without dropping the signal!
- Independent chat and game volumes allow you to manage these two different audio sources without having to suffer from loudness with one and low volumes from another. This means that since these two have different volume controls, you can now adjust them according to your needs and preferences;giving you that balanced sound you want when you play.
- Ever find it difficult to understand yourself when you speak or hear your voice with a headset covering your ears? The Turtle Beach X31 wireless headset takes care of this problem by giving you what is called "microphone monitoring." This feature basically helps you to clearly hear your own voice when you speak,without the need for you to remove your headphones to do so.
- If you like the "boom" sounds that are emitted by sub woofers, you will love hearing the explosions now that the X31 has an amazing feature called "bass boost".This benefit's you by giving those rich and deep bass tones that you usually hear with sound systems that have sub-woofers on them.
Now as much as I love my X31's,there is one minor design issue;and one which really needs to be improved in the next model.
The minor issue for me was the battery usage...regular Duracell's will give me about 18-20 hours of online play.This may get a little expensive if you dont have a good source for cheap aaa-alkaline batteries,or buy rechargables.I get batteries pretty cheap so I normally use them since they last longer than rechargables.
My only real complaint with this headset is the mute/chat switch in the talkback Cable which connects the X31 or X41 headset mic to the controller for XBOX LIVE chat.The design makes it nearly impossible to tell whether the switch is in mute or talk position.Some people don't mind this,but I have a problem with accidently screaming "colorful metaphors" while playing;so this is an issue for me.Good luck trying to adjust the switch without getting killed in the proccess.
Despite these issues,this is truly a great headset you will love hearing through.
The Turtle Beach X31 wireless headset is a great value for the money,and will improve both your kill death ratio and your fun.
Once you play using the X31's,you will be hooked too!
