Gaming audio specialist Turtle Beach has thrown inline amplifiers onto its latest gaming headsets for Xbox 360 and PC gamers with the Ear Force X12.
Following up on a legacy of performance-driven headphones, the stereo X12 headset is the follow-up to the X1 and the X11 which the company claims has been the best-selling Xbox headset to date.
The USB-powered X12 features 50mm drivers for deep sound and is compatible with DSS 7.1 surround sound processors.
The inline amplifier sits on the headphone jack cable and allows independent control of chat, bass levels and volume. Part of this chat control includes microphone monitoring to vary the volume of your own voice.
Physically, the headsets are lightweight with a breathable, fabric mesh on the cans to sit comfortable on the ears.
They’ve yet to put a price up for the X12, but keen gamers can expect the units to hit Australia this Spring. US prices for the upcoming release sit at $59.99.
