Turtle Beach are one of the biggest names in the gaming audio industry and their products are favoured by gamers across the globe.  We recently looked at one of their PC headsets – the Z6A, which was very impressive indeed.  Going on past experiences we were very happy to receive their latest Xbox 360 headset to test.
