For the longest time I've considered getting a real headset for gaming instead of the basic bluetooth headset I use for gaming with my PS3. Most gamers would be comfortable with spending $50-$100 on a headset knowing it would fit their needs. The PX22 falls into this price range and is designed with gamers in mind. Did I mention that it is an official MLG headset? The PX22 is $79.99 on Amazon. The PX22 is a powered usb headset with an inline amp with audio controls. The headset features 50mm speakers in breathable ear cushions and a padded headband. The headset will work with almost anything, phones, tablets, 360, PC. Mac, Vita and many other devices.
There are so many features I loved about the headset. One of the best features is the level of comfort the PX22 offers for long gaming sessions. I wore it for several hours playing Crysis 3 and the Last of Us on PS3. My ears felt fine and didn’t feel pinched. In multiplayer matches I took advantage of the amplifier to fine tune the chat volume for from me and from other gamers. This along with adjusting the bass and treble made for a fantastic gaming experience. Overall I have to say the PX22 offers a much better gaming audio experience than the other headsets I own. The headset does a great job of tuning out background noises and amplifying what gamers hear in the game. I also used the headset on my PC in a few games and with Skype. The experience was just as good as it was on the PS3.
Turtle Beach has made it easy for gamers to use the headset on many devices and includes adapters for some of the options. Getting the headset to work with the PC is a snap, plug in the usb cable and the mic cable, both plug into the amplifier and you are good to go. Getting it to work with the PS3 or the 360 depends on how you have the console hooked up, hdmi, or A/V. HDMI makes things a little more complicated and involves an adapter but Turtle Beach includes great instructions and the necessary hardware.
I highly recommend checking out Turtle Beach’s Headsets on Amazon, the reviews speak for themselves. Hands down these might be the best headsets gamers could get. I hope there is a way to use this with the next generation of consoles
