Lets Start on the negative points and reasons that some if not the majority will not purchase a set of these cans.
Price £170 to £200 depend on where you buy them.
Took 20 seconds to put together as it was just the one optical cable from the digital out on the PlayStation 3 to the digital in on the receiver........Easy Peasy
To look at they are quite nice but they don't look as trendy as my Logitech F540 and they look more shiny black plastic than my F540 grey ones.
Don't get me wrong they do not look rubbish but i would have expected something a little more streamlined if you get the picture.
Lets get on to the important things and that is comfort on the ears and the most important thing the way the sound.
I will say as soon as soon as i put them around my head they felt lovely Jubbly and really far more comfortable on my ears than my previous Logitech pair.
Now following the instruction i was prompted to hold the power on button on the side of the headset which is followed by a voice command [Sounds like the girlfriend]
There are many different buttons on both sides of the headset so its difficult to be pressing this and that at the moment while they are attached to my head until i get time to work out the configuration and feel comfortable knowing what is what and where all the buttons are by feel alone..
So time to test the sound out and thought i would have to go straight into the Playstation menu and configure this and that but nothing of the sort.
What follows is for me the most important factor and why i am well chuffed with this headset........................The sound quality when testing the game Dead Nation was amazing,and the presets loaded on the headset certainly changed the way the game sounded.
Volume is another plus point because this set certainly had far more power than my logitech F540 and there was no way i could have the volume control on to high a setting as there was no need ,what i do like is the fact that that volume power is there if required and i reckon even on half volume they sounded louder than the F540 on full throttle.
So at the end of the day the most important aspects of this PX5 for most would be comfort and Sound and they certainly have exceeded my expectations there and on that fact alone to me these are all that's required for some serious nights gaming.
I look forward to Battlefields 3,MW3 and Dead Island so i can really enjoy these in all there glory.
Can also visit the Turtle Beach Websites and download more presets for the PlayStation 3 that only ships with 8 with the 360 shipping with 16 [don't ask me why]
This was only a 5 minute test out so i am sorry to disappoint those STUFF and T3 fanatics as its just a quick opinion on my initial thoughts and impressions and i'm chuffed to bits with the feel and sound quality that's for certain.
Anyone thinking about getting a decent headset should seriously consider this PX5 because i tell you now i am not easily pleased with most things game related but from the short amount of time testing these then i don't think i need to upgrade for quite a few years.
SPOOK...............have not tested the fact that you can play music from your iPhone while gaming and answering the phone,also have not been online and tested the various Chat settings.
Now of to The websites USB and headset attached to PC to download whats on offer regarding other presets......................Time2die
