4.0 out of 5 stars Turtle Beach X12 - HDMI AV adaptor N/A 13 Aug. 2012
Package Type:Standard Packaging|Verified Purchase
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Just thought I should make 1 very quick point. The HDMI AV adaptors might not be necessary!

I ordered the X12 and the HDMI AV adaptor as everyone seems to advise that the adaptor is a standard requirement, however this was not necessary.

If you have Audio outputs in the back of your TV (I'll bet you all have!!) then you can connect the X12 directly to your TV. It was very simple as i tried it out of necessity because my HDMI adaptor had been shipped separately. I have the Red and White plugs to my headset and on the back on my TV under a label marked AUDIO I have Red and White sockets. It is that simple and actually explained as an alternative set up in the X12 manual.

Aside from that the headset is awesome and the amount of sound I can now pick up on is astonishing.

Had headset 6 months now, leaving them laying behind my TV on the floor when not in use and they are wokring fine despite being handled quite roughly.
An excellent 1st set of speakers if you are looking for some.

I have also discovered by accident that when leaving the X12 connected to you xbox (when xbox is turned off!) you can use them to watch TV!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Headset 23 July 2012
Package Type:Standard Packaging
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Didn't buy them from Amazon but Game before they went bust or whatever. Great headset for the money, good to listen to music to and play games.
The microphone is great and has feedback so you hear if other people can hear you.
Comfortable on the head, soft padded and easily bendable microphone make it suitable to wear for long periods of time.

The Bass Boost function on it is awesome as in-game you can make the headset practically vibrate from large explosions with super-strong bass that make them really great to use. Listening to music as well is great if you like bassy songs; very powerful

The only bad thing i'd say is the amount of wires as it (just like all other wired gaming headsets)doesn't have a coiled cable so you have to coil it up and cable-tie it or something like that :)

5.0 out of 5 stars Great gaming gadget for PC, Mac and Xbox 24 May 2015
Package Type:Standard Packaging
The Turtle Beach X12 headphones with microphone are nicely designed gaming gadget for PC, Mac and Xbox that fits great to the listener ears, they are made of quality material and seem durable. The headphones have frequency response from 20Hz to 20KHzfeature and don’t require batteries.

Also, the nice feature is the ability to plug the headset directly into the TV if you have standard audio outputs.

The headphones come in package box that includes only the headphones and simple but concisely written user guide. The package was not big but most importantly manages to protect its content well from the possible damage during transport. I didn’t have any problems connecting these headphones to any device I tried so far, including even PS3.

Speaking about the delivered sound quality I was, in short, impressed with the results during the extensive testing I performed; as usually I tried not only the games, but also some classical music and the sound is clean, both bass and middle tones are well-delivered. X12 headphones also provide complete protection from the outside sounds, therefore could be used as protection in loud environments.

Therefore, The Turtle Beach X12 headphones with microphone are well-made product that seems durable, the good gaming headphones that would be convenient and pleasant to wear, offering the great quality of sound. Because of their durability and quality of sound these headphones could be seen as an excellent choice for a pair of gaming headphones. Their price certainly adds to their value and also can be seen as the additional recommendation for its purchase.

I received a sample of the Turtle Beach X12 with microphone for the purpose of testing and unbiased review, while all the presented information is based on my impressions.

5.0 out of 5 stars I got this headset becuase of the sound quality! 31 Jan. 2015
Package Type:Standard Packaging|Verified Purchase
Amazing I was amazed by the crisp quality of the sound, my old mic was horrible didnt give me any good sound and a very poor mic but this microphone is bog standard quality of the make. I was particulary impressed by the adjustable bass, chat and game volume; for example if your friend just join your xbox live party you can decrease the game sound or increase the chat sound so you can hear them. Even if you have a giant head (like mine) it easily adjusts to it and the mic is also adjustable. Furthermore the av adaptor is not needed unless your tv doesnt have an audio out, check the back of tv or monitor to check if it says audio in. Componet in ,or component out it wont work so check for that before buying, it will save you a good five pounds.

If you want to know how to setup the mic follow instructions.(only without the adapter, check youtube for the other tutorials , or if you want check on the instructions leaflet provided).
Xbox setup.
1. Connect red and white plug to back of tv.
2. Connect both the green and green cables together.
3. Connect the wire that is shaped like and L to your controller and the other one to the small box, which is labled X12.
4. Connect usb to xbox so it can power the headset.
Pc setup
1. Connect usb to pc/monitor.
2. Connect just the green cable to the sound jack.
3. Connct the rose cable to the microphone jack.
If your pc/monitor has a audio and mic jack(one jack) just connect it to that.
