I have the Sonly headset 7.1 ($100 one) and it works great but yesterday the Turtle Beach XRAY limited edition for BO2 came out and I decided to buy it. It's a VERY nice headset. Very comfortable and love all the features on it, specially the ability to sync it up to my cell phone and receive calls or make calls during game play. The game sound is great.
However, one problem, the CHAT sound isn't as clear as my Sony headset. People hear me fine and I hear people fine. However, the best way to describe this issue is the people I hear sound DULL. I don't find the chat to be as clear as the Sony headset. There is no static and it's not muffled, just dull.
Has anyone experienced this chat quality with WIRELESS Turtle Beach headsets? Any solution or tips to improve chat quality?
Only explanation I have come up with is that turtle beach chat is going through blue tooth where as sony isn't. Could that be the case?
I tried the wireless Turtle beach set ($199.00 US) it was a good headset, but i returned it for the sony, and like you i thought the chat was dull or flat on turtle beach compaired to the sonys......
If one is going to spend $200 for a head set, I would go the extra mile and buy Astros (arguably the best overall)
I love my Sonys ($100). I have owned TBs (DPX21s) and I prefer the SOnys. If they ever go wonkey on me, I will buy the newer Sony's for $150ish
(this of course is 100% a matter of preference)
Reason I bought the XRAY was because of the blue tooth sync via cell phone. I get calls all the time and thought It would be a cool feature. Figured I would try it out and it does work great. But it seems as though the chat sound is not up to par. I think I will be retuning this and sticking to my PS3
