Turtle Beach PX22 amplified universal gaming headset for PS3, Xbox 360 and PC
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: COMFORT
- Large and Comfortable wrap around ear pads.
- Breathable fabric, less sweating or non at all depending on the user.
- Cushioned top piece.
- Ear pads touch head in all locations, no gaps.

SOUND over 3.5mm Jack
- Excellent crisp, load, Bass, Treble, etc..
- Bass and Treble adjusters work very well, small adjustments make a big difference.
- Separate controls for volume.

SOUND over USB
- Clear

SOUND over Cell Phone jack.
- You control this channel mostly on your phone's audio settings.
- Listening to music is the clearest with the least distortion on this channel so far. (Please note any distortion I have heard on this headset as been very very minor, but it does occur from time to time, and this channels seems to handle loud music the best. This may just be my cell phone.)
- Nice and clean.
- Clearest phone call I have ever made with a headset.
- Sound is so crisp you might think someone is slicing your ear drums up with a knife.

Microphone - on Xbox
- It is fine, the low quality of xbox live voice chat affects this more than the physical Mic, but it sounds very good according to my buddies.

Microphone - Over USB
- Crisp and clear
- a slight bass added to voice, which sounds good.

Microphone - Over Cell phone.
- Good if mic is pulled away from my face further, but this may be my phone over amplifying the mic.

Cons: COMFORT
- Very tight headset, might take a few sessions to get used to, but in my experience all headsets need a few days to get past that "low headache" phase.

- If you wear glasses these will squeak like a balloon against them sometimes. But many headsets do this to me, but these are the worst when it comes to discomfort with glasses, and over all it is really not that bad. They are the worst headset I have had to use with glasses, but on a scale of 1-10 I still rate them a solid 7.5 for glasses.

SOUND over 3.5mm Jack
- The headset can't seem to handle it's own bass. The PX21's hit WAY harder than these. These get loader, but the bass tends to distort a little. even with the bass set to the center position.

SOUND over USB
- The Bass and treble do not affect this channel
- Not as loud or as crisp as the 3.5mm jack
- It's loudest setting is sometimes only just loud enough.. i wish the USB could get loader.

SOUND over Cell phone
- The Bass and treble do not affect this channel
- Loud electrical hiss when cell phone is charging, It can be clearly heard even in the loudest of music over the cell phone and other inputs. (Easy fix is to not charge your phone while it is connected, but that creates it's own issues)
- Please note there is no hiss when the cell phone is not charging. And it may very well be an issue with my phone, not the headset... but I assume most users phones may do the same.


Microphone over Cell phone
- People complained it sounded like I was whispering, but had the gain turned up all the way an sounded loud and distorted. Pulling the microphone an extra 1-2 inches from my face made for crystal clear audio for my listener.
- This may be an issue specific to my cell phone however.

Other Thoughts: SOUND over Cell phone
- The Volume is only controlled by your cell phone, no controls on the headset, not a big deal, just something to keep in mind.

ALTERNATE SETUPS
- You can connnect your 3.5mm jack to your Xbox, along with the xbox chat wire, and get game audio and chat audio to work perfectly, while connecting the USB to your computer to get your Computer audio, chat audio, and mic to work.

Then you can plug in your cell phone to take calls if needed.


You could connect to Xbox, PC, and a cell phone all at the same time and you will hear all the sounds over each device and each person will hear you over the mic (except cell phone) and it all works perfectly. I testing this for fun. It works.
