Turtle Beach XO Seven Pro Review
There is lots of choice when it comes to headsets these days, not like it was a few years ago, starting from with basic headsets from around £19.99 to pro gamer headsets for £250.00. Well, you can pick this one up from around £130.
The Original XO Seven for the Xbox One came out in 2013 around the launch for the Xbox One, and was one of the best rated gaming headsets last year. The New XO Seven Pro differs in a number of ways from that headset. Firstly it’s got its own custom stereo headset adapter called the “Ear Force XO Headset Audio Controller Plus“.
For me personally. This is the best headset I’ve ever used. and I’ll tell you why in this review.
Turtle Beach’s XO Seven Pro comes with everything needed to connect to Xbox The package contains the Ear Force Headset Audio Controller Plus, a breakaway cable, a mobile adapter, a micro USB update cable and a removable mic boom. Installation is quick. Connect the Audio Controller Plus to your Xbox One game-pad, attach the breakaway cable between the headset and the Controller Plus, and download any updates via the included mini USB. Once in game, players can toggle between four surround pre-sets: Natural Sound, Bass Boost, Bass and treble Boost and Voice Enhancer. The mic has it’s own set of pre-sets, including: Quiet Room, Normal Room and Loud Room. Now lets get to the gaming!
The inclusion of mobile Cable with In-Line Mic means the headset can be used for phone calls without the boom mic!
I must remind you this is the MLG Pro Circuit headset… and you see why.
Lets start with features on the headset, The headset features customization tools like human Hearing Mode and Game and Mic Presets to go with Mic Monitoring and game and chat volume controls. You can use Superhuman Hearing Mode to pinpoint quiet audio cues like enemy footsteps and weapon reloads; it works as a sound amplifier and helps in creating a more heightened environment for that gaming audio.
Overall the headset is amazing. I’m so happy with it, and for the price I really feel it’s a steal for a Pro Gaming headset.
