December is a massive month for many people with Christmas but for Star Wars fans It’s been along time waiting with Episode VII: The Force Awakens being released in cinemas worldwide this week.
Alot of gamers have also been having fun playing EA’s newest title Star Wars Battlefront while they wait and we’ve had some fun on that we must admit, But we’ve been having the most fun of all playing with Turtle beach’s newest headset called ‘Star Wars Battlefront Sandtrooper Gaming Headset’ and we was lucky enough to get our hands on one as they are selling fast and here’s what we thought of it, Let’s start off with the price It’s a respectful £69.99
The Battlefront Sandtrooper is a stereo headset, but don’t let this put you off high spec people!, It’s not cheap looking or nor does it sound cheap like some stereo designs on the market, I mean we don’t all need 7.1 surround sound this is perfect for gaming and you’ll all see this is a premium headset from Turtlebeach and the overall headset quality is a very high and worth the money all day long. (We think)
The Star Wars Battlefront Sandtrooper is also a feature-rich headset and a must for any Star Wars collector (Like me!), I mean It looks brilliant from the box to the headset as you can see from the unboxing video below… The design is what you really want as a fan of the series so get ready to fire up ‘Star Wars Battlefront’ on the Xbox One while wearing this unique headset and really use it for what it was made for!,
Remember The new Battle of Jakku maps have just become available so make sure to have some fun with them too, Sorry! Sorry! Back to the headset….
When I first seen it out of the box I thought it kinda has that Sand looking design from Episode 4 (A new hope) But it’s not it’s officially themed after the squad of Stormtroopers donning the signature orange shoulder pauldron deployed to the sand-covered desert planet of Tatooine, The design of the layout is like the Titanfall headset that was released last year or so, Myself or some would say this is kinda of a ‘reskin’ special edition with additional features
Of course the headset is an over-ear design for extended comfort much like most of the Turtle beach headsets. it has the all important removable high-sensitivity boom mic, It also has thundering 50mm speakers to deliver sound the way you would normally only hear some would say in the Star Wars galaxy, It’s the way gaming headsets are meant to be heard we think. If you’re thinking about upgrading from a normal headset this will blow you to a galaxy far far away.
The Sandtrooper offers crystal clear multiplayer chat when connected to the Xbox One controllers we’ve tried this for ourself and the sound is crystal clean perfect, and the 3.5mm connection also makes it perfect for mobile/tablet devices so you can simply unplug from the Xbox Controller and watch Star Wars on the tablet with a Star Wars headset… Now how awesome does that sound?!
One special feature is that it includes removable speaker plates that can be swapped out to show off different Star Wars characters and iconic franchise moments. This was a great idea to include and much better then the previous Titanfall headset that you could’t do this with. Let us say the Headset will blow you away!
Booming 50mm Neodymium speakers
In-line controls conveniently place Mic Mute and Master Volume
Crystal Clear Chat & Audio
high-sensitivity adjustable boom mic for in-game and online chat and also removable
Since the headset uses a 3.5mm connection and rightly so, using it on the Xbox One requires either one of the newer controllers or a Xbox One chat adapter, which is not included.

Thinking about upgrading from a normal headset? This will blow you to a galaxy far far away.
