Turtle Beach Ear Force PX5


[link to this post]
 
Nice Headset but really expensive at around £170,confusing part is that they have one for Playstation 3 and one for Xbox 360 and i want to know if these will work with both because something tells me that they wont.

Since a lot of gamers will own both consoles then having to buy 2 sets of these seems a little ridiculous to say the least and i can only imagine that they work on both consoles,Having looked at the reviews though of both the xbox and P3 the xbox seems to have a few different parts needed for chat unlike the playstation 3 version.

Anyone got any information regarding these new Turtle Beach headsets and will they work with both consoles or do they all think that we have mega money or something................Personally i think they have to work with both as it would be a complete pain to keep setting up both if that's what is required.

Got this from the feedback page if the link you posted:

"Summary:
This product is amazing in all ways except for the 2.4 ghz issue. It causes both my xbox 360 and my ps3 to disconnect from the internet. It also causes problems with my laptop and desktop that are wireless. If you want amazing sound, these are by far the best out there. If you want wireless internet, however, you may want to look elsewhere."

I think you are hardwired though aren't you?

Manufacturer seems to suggest it works with both, but it is slightly ambiguous:

Knowing how it works is completely different to understanding how it works.

A-ha!

"The good news is that it is compatible for the Xbox and PS3 so you won’t have to buy separate headsets if you happen to own both consoles."

I fairly sure you can get better for cheaper. I'm also fairly sure you could attempt to rig up any kind of headset to work on both without the need for going for one solely suited to the job of consoles which you are probably paying for the premium of.

Cheers for the research guys but i am still not convinced that it will work with both consoles after seeing that the xbox px5 has a extra bit of kit for chat,think for this to work with both then me thinks the xbox version would be the better bet as this comes with the added kit in the first place.

Still a little confusing and i am not sure why you would sell the same headset with a xbox 360 version and a Playstation 3 version if they indeed work with both.........Seems a little daft to me ?

Probably just for marketing but you might be right. At least if you get the xbox one it will have the extra leads in it.

Let me know if you do because I wouldn't mind one if the quality of sound us good. I like the idea of adjusting the voip level on the headset itself. I assume you can turn the tv sound off and just use the headset?

I love my set of Turtle Beach PX21's
Yea they do have the cable but that's not a problem for me, it's so long I could run it around the room if needed.
