Turtle Beach Ear Force Z6A 5.1 Headset Review

Rating: 8.5.

Many serious gamers will have heard of Turtle Beach as they are renowned for producing some of the best gaming headsets on the market for both console and PC gaming.  Turtle Beach as a company have actually been around for over 20 years now so they have many years more experience than newcomers such as Tt eSPORTS and CM Storm.

Today we are going to look at one of Turtle Beach’s latest PC headsets, the Ear Force Z6A which boasts an impressive feature set considering the reasonably modest price tag.  The most prominent feature is that the Z6A features proper surround sound with no fewer than four drivers in each earcup.  Unlike some surround sound headsets, though, the Z6A isn’t overly heavy, weighing only 380g.
