Turtle Beach Ear Force i60 Wireless Headset
Turtle Beach has sent us their i60, a headset with an unexpected design from the likes of a company most well known for their video game console headsets. The Ear Force i60, with its aluminum and white accents, is designed and stylized to match and be used with Apple products such as Mac systems and iPhones. It also has a list of features including Dolby Headphone virtual surround and wireless connectivity. Usage of the i60 is limited to PCs, Macs, and mobile devices – this headset is not compatible with game consoles.
The i60 can be purchased online from two vendors, at the Apple Store and directly from Turtle Beach, for a hefty $399.95. We’ll have to see how serious this headset pushes its boundaries before we make any final judgments.
