A new era of tournament-grade gaming audio

82

A few design quirks and frustrations aside, we're pleased with the XP Seven Series bundle. Even more than the headphones, though, we're smitten with the Audio Control Unit. The Seven Series headset is a solid enough offering, but there are plenty of other $150 headsets we'd use with the ACU if we could. Compared to Astro's older MLG headsets, this product represents a clear step forward, and we're sure many competitive gamers will enjoy it. If it were up to us, we'd hold off until the ACU becomes available as a standalone product and then pair it with an even better pair of headphones. One thing is certain: the Astro Mixamp has finally been beaten at its own game. It's time to take Turtle Beach seriously outside the living room.

Turtle Beach's XP Seven headset system lives up to its MLG endorsement, but its Audio Control Unit outshines the headphones themselves.

While they do offer a fantastic aural experience, they are a fairly significant investment, and the difference between these and a lesser-priced model just quite isn’t enough to warrant the extra outlay. They’re an awesome piece of kit, but at an equally extravagant price.

If you’re a serious gamer with a mix of media passions - and a bit of a control fetish - it’s hard to go wrong with the XP Seven.
