Turtle Beach Ear Force i60 Wireless Desktop Media Headset Review – An Incredible Headset With 7.1 Surround Sound!

When you are consistently using Apple’s Earbuds, it is hard to fathom sitting still to listen to music, especially when the premise of the Earbuds is to have your music available to you while you are on-the-go. So, when a set of headphones come along that force you to sit back and just listen to the music it is almost shocking, and this was the first impression of the Turtle Beach Ear Force i60 Wireless Desktop Media Headset.

For us, this effect was not entirely experienced until we listened to Led Zeppelin – Stairway to Heaven. As we were listening to the song, we heard aspects that were not recognized before with the Earbuds, and it was at this point that we had no choice, but to sit back and enjoy.

The Ear Force i60’s packaging leaves you with a fair understanding of what to expect with your newly purchased headset. The back of the packaging gives you a full breakdown of the features and specifications that are included.

The first glance of the Ear Force i60 shows us the Apple inspired design concept of the headset, with the gorgeous glossy white paint job and the aluminum components. In addition to the great aesthetics, the high quality materials that comprise the headset’s ear cups and headband are clearly visible. The leather ear cups provide additional cushion that allow for increased comfort, and further an ability for you to listen to your music longer.

To add to the comfort of the headset, the leather ear cups are also rotatable, which allows for you to adjust them to fit your head in a manner that is most comfortable to wear. An interesting aspect of the Ear Force i60 wireless media headset is the invisible microphone.

On the backside of the left ear cup, there is a white LED, which indicates the power state of the Ear Force i60, the power button, an audio preset switch that allows you to cycle the different audio presets, and the bottom button is for muting the audio.

    Honestly, at the time of writing this article, we really didn’t have a chance to test the battery life over a long period of time, but so far with on-and-off usage for the past two weeks, the headset has only had to be charged once.
