We got to stop by with our friends at Turtle Beach they had demo station with PS3, Xbox 360 and PC games and showed us their new Ear Force Z2 which sound amazing i got to try the Ear Force Z2 while playing Red Dead Redemption and i gotta say these head sets are a must buy.
Here’s a press release:
Turtle Beach, a leader in XBOX 360, PlayStation and PC gaming headsets, announced that the new Ear Force Z2 professional-grade PC/XBOX gaming headset. The Ear Force Z2 features a wealth of Turtle BeachÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s signature gaming audio advancements, including extra-large 50mm speakers with focused directionality, acoustically tuned ear cups and deep-seated ear cushions for sonic detail that elevates the PC gaming experience to the next level.
The Ear Force Z2 can be used with all desktop, notebook and netbook PCs (including AppleÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s iPad), as well as with XBOX 360 consoles via an optional talkback cable (available at TurtleBeach.com) for XBOX Live chat. The high-fidelity sound makes it a perfect add-on for home entertainment applications (movies, TV and music) for additional flexibility and value.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“The Ear Force Z2 is an incredible headset that delivers the sound, quality and comfort of products costing more than three times as much. It immerses listeners in the gaming and movie-watching experience by enhancing even the most subtle sound cues, such as faraway footsteps, a car approaching from behind or softly-spoken passages that are difficult to hear with normal speakers,Ã¢â‚¬Â said Michael Arzt, Vice President of Marketing and Business Development, Turtle Beach. Ã¢â‚¬Å“When combined with our new Ear Force DSS Dolby surround sound processor, the Z2 can also be used as a professional-grade surround-sound headset for Xbox or PC gaming. You can even turn the Z2 into a USB headset by combining it with our Amigo II USB sound card.Ã¢â‚¬Â
Designed for optimum fidelity, the Ear Force Z2Ã¢â‚¬â„¢s extra-large 50mm speaker drivers feature high-density magnets to deliver fullÃ‚Â bandwidth and linear sound reproduction, rich bass sounds and enhanced sonic detail. Acoustic-tilt speaker panels focus sound towards the front of the ear, rather than directly into the ear canal, improving the phase-directionality of game and movie sounds.
The high-sensitivity mic withÃ‚Â flexible boom adjusts to any position or flips out of the way when not in use. An in-line volume and mic-mute control, which can be conveniently clipped to a belt or shirt, provides for easy audio adjustments. The 10-foot long cable has a Velcro tie wrap to easily adjust the length. A unique Ã¢â‚¬Å“quick-connectÃ¢â‚¬Â jack enables the Z2 headset to be easily separated from the volume cable, which can be left plugged into the PC. (A second volume cable – which can be purchased atÃ‚Â TurtleBeach.com – can be left in an XBOX 360 console or home theater system for quick transfer between systems.)Ã‚Â The comfortable, oversize fabric mesh ear cups also feature a twist-style design so the headset can conveniently rest on the shoulders between gaming sessions, and the multi-pivot design easily folds up into a small form-factor for storage.
The Ear Force Z2 has an MSRP of $69.95 and will be available soon atÃ‚Â www.TurtleBeach.com and other online retailers and major US and Canadian retail stores.Ã‚Â Ã‚Â Turtle Beach premium gaming and audio products are available at Best Buy, GameStop, Amazon.com, Newegg, Meijer, Best Buy Canada, The Future Shop and other fine retailers.
