XO Seven Headset Review

XO Seven Headset Review

Turtle Beach Ear Force XO Seven Premium Xbox One Gaming Headset


The Turtle Beach Ear Force XO Seven Headset for Xbox One is a premium headset for gamers alike. It allows gamers on the Xbox One gaming console to independently use a headset without the drawbacks of previous headsets from the Xbox 360 or other Xbox One headsets.

The biggest feature of the XO Seven is the fact it does not require batteries. This is huge for a wireless headset. Not requiring batteries allows the gamer to play on and on. No recharging or replacing of batteries. The second huge feature of the XO Seven is that being wireless it does not require any audio wires to run back to the console. The headset is entirely controlled and powered through the controller.

When talking about the controller with Xbox One you will think of the headset adapter being needed. It certainly is still needed but with the XO Seven it is included. So this will save the gamer money when looking into a headset.  Currently the adaptor retails around the $24.00 mark.

Overall this headset is a godsend to any Gamer Ninja. The only drawback we can tag to this headset model is that it is slightly on the heavier side. It feels comfortable but it weighs in at a heavy scale than one would like. Not too bad but it is heavy on the head.

The bonus items would include a detachable microphone, a detachable emergency connection wire so active gamers will not break the connection wire and interchangeable ear covers which do something I have no clue at this time about.

Gamer.Ninja rates this headset at a 9.9 out of 10 stars.

In our opinion it is a must buy!
