Turtle Beach EarForce X1 boosts game and voice audio

Turtle Beach EarForce X1

Balancing game sound effects and player-to-player voice chat is not easily accomplished; even dedicated gaming headsets frequently prioritize one over the other. Just announced by Turtle Beach, the EarForce X1 headset overcomes those limitations, according to the company. Its advantage is an external amplifier that plugs into the USB port of an Xbox 360 or computer. The small adapter improves the overall volume for both games as well as voice and can adjust either volume level independently. Computer users have the additional option of plugging the headset directly into their system's audio and microphone jacks. For the shipping price of $60, the new Turtle Beach headset is a definite improvement over the stock Xbox Live Communicator.
