    The Turtle Beach Ear Force XP500s Are The Gaming Dad’s Dream

    As a father it's amazingly hard to play video games.

Either way, these Ear Force W3 wireless headphones from Turtle Beach are “Ready for Wii” and come with an audio splitter cable. Powered by a single AAA battery, these ‘phones will set you back… Read More

  • Turtle Beach Ear Force X1: Good Features, Bad Name

Or tell anyone I bought them, no matter how good they are—and this lightweight headset appears to be good. As you can see in the diagram, the X1′s are meant to be part of your gaming ecosystem.
