Turtle Beach XP300 – Key Features
To provide wireless game chat the Turtle Beach XP300 headset utilizes a Bluetooth link. For the Xbox 360 an XBA Bluetooth adaptor plug is provided. This pushes into the back of the Xbox handset to provide the serious gamer the potential of a totally wireless gaming audio environment.
The Turtle Beach XP300 features the Company’s brand new dual frequency WiFi technology, so that sound breakup caused by wireless RF interference are a thing of the past. The dual spectrum radio oscillates between the 2.4GHz and 5GHz bands to find a clear space with your network router, to guarantee you are going to get zero interference,breakup. Turtle Beach are the only player in the market providing this functionality at this moment in time.
Another important innovation emerging with this series of Ear Force microphone headsets are rechargeable batteries. The Turtle Beach XP300 offers up to 15 hours on just one charge and for those nightmares when you’ve forgotten to plug in for that overnight charge you can also trickle charge and game play at the same time.
So why don’t we take a closer look at the headset itself. On the right-hand ear piece you have chat level up and down controls, Bluetooth off and on and a microphone mute switch.
On the left ear-cup you get the microphone itself, which is detachable, a headset on off control, the sound field modifier switch (which is an acoustic effect that provides you a broader sound stage to pick up on those soft nuance sounds) and lastly an Equalizer control that moves you through theEqualizer presets.

Also on the edge of the left-side cup you get the game audio volume control and on the inside there is a microphone monitor control. Turtle Beach say this is a very high demand upgrade, and gives you the option to adjust how much microphone level you have.
The Turtle Beach XP300 speakers are really comfortable and produce fantastic audio quality, as a result of their large 50mm speakers.
