Turtle Beach Z2 Headset Mini-Review

Posted on Thursday, April 14 @ 23:00:34 Eastern by


For a budget headset priced at $69.99, the Turtle Beach Ear Force Z2 is a strong recommendation. (Still think Turtle Beach sounds like suntan lotion, but whatever.) The headphone's lightweight plastic and plush pleather design is strictly black with silver rims on the outside of the comfortably large cans, which are interestingly multi-collapsible. Not only can they fold sideways so that they can rest on your chest, but they can rotate inward for storage. The microphone is not collapsible, fixed at a certain length, but it's long and bendable enough to reach the front of your mouth instead of to the side, effectively reducing interference.

This successor to the Z1 headphones features the standard in-line volume and mic mute, as well as two more unusual characteristics. About a foot and a half down from the headset, the cord can be detached, with the rest of the lengthy cord being able to be wrapped with the provided Velcro ring. The headset also uses two 3.5mm jacks instead of a USB dongle, which means that it is not amplified and thus has nearly no hissing.

The Z2's sound quality is well-balanced, though some might not like the weakness of the bass. This PC gaming headset is also compatible with the Xbox 360 with the addition of the optional Xbox Live Talkback Cable, sold separately at $4.95. Unfortunately, unlike the Turtle Beach Ear Force X11 Headset, the Z2's has no game/chat balancing for the Xbox 360. But that's not a huge downside. The Turtle Beach Z2 Headset is well worth the price tag for any PC gaming fan.
