TB Earforce PX21's

Hi all,

 

I've been playing MW2 now since the new year and am enjoying it immensely.  A big part of the fun is the podcasts, youtube vids, forums etc, etc.  I'm up to lvl70 but not ready to prestige yet as I want to get the best out of the unlocks I have already and, to be honest, I'm still pretty inconsistent.  Got my first 23-0 flawless on MTDM the other day though so that was nice ;-)

 

Anyway, just had a delivery of the PX21 headset from Turtle Beach and the stereo sound is simply astonishing.  So much so that it's almost like I have to learn to play the game again!  I'm finding that I'm almost overloaded with sounds now and it's having an impact on my game play.

 

Anyone else suffer from this "re-adjustment" when using headsets for the first time?  Another thing I'm struggling to work with is the stereo expander function - increases the long-range noises and decreases the middle sound noises.  I'm yet to decide whether it's better switched on or off......anyone advise their set up?

 

Cheers


Andy (Durzo__Blint)

Expander on = win. Youll just have to put up with the hissing during menus but you cant hear it in game

i know what you mean, i used to have the older p21's and they were pretty good. i thought they were the best thing going, but how wrong i was :smileyvery-happy:


im currently using the astro a40 audio system and its not stereo, its 5.1 surround sound.

if you have the cash seriously give it a go. its the best thing i've ever tried

Cheers chaps, I'm thinking that I play better with the expander on so thanks for that, I'll stick with it.

 

Couldn't afford the full 5.1 surround sound to be honest, not yet anyway, so plumped for the next best thing, as far as I could make out from my research anyway.

 

Don't get me wrong - the sound detail and stereo effect has a massive impact and is simply superb - it's this difference that has thrown me "off my stride" so to speak, lol, it's almost too good!

 

I'll just have to play more to get better :-)

Well hello there and first of all let me congratulate you on your purchase... I can tell you already that this will be the best money you have ever spend towards gaming.
I got mine maybe a couple of months ago now, and I have to say it has made me so much better at the game... I just love the piece of kit to bits.

Completely understand where you coming from, concerning the adjustment to the headset... at first I was also overwhelmed by everything that was going on. It really makes you appreciate how much is actually going on at the same time.
But that is only a temporary set-back... a lot sooner rather than later you will get used to it and will just know what is happening around you.

Expander should be on.. I played without it at first, but on is definitely much better... and also NinjaPro is a very good perk. You won't hear your footsteps, so that will confuse you a bit less maybe too.

Enjoy the headset mate and let us know if you have any problems.

Cheers KillerKingKobe, nice comments. I reckon you're right - shouldn't take me too long to get back to where I was. The depth and variety of sounds are simply astonishing - didn't realise so much was going on in the background before!

I tend to use Ninja Pro pretty much on all my classes - along with Cold Blooded Pro it's a fantastic combination for stealthy infiltration, lol....most of my weapons are silenced too.

Cheers chap, I think I'll be sending some invites out later on, I've got to start playing in a team rather than lone wolf I reckon. Feel free to add me anyone,

Ta muchly

Andy

I was going to get those as well, but they are not available in this country yet.

So as impatient as i am i opted for the P21's and i have to say Search & Destroy is now a totally different game lol.

 

By the way, if you think they are good on MW2 then get yourself a copy of BFBC2 and listen to the sound difference. I kid you not sometimes on MW2 the sound gets distorted and breaks up but on BFBC2 the sound is outstanding and it really does feel like you're in a war. Don't forget to change the audio settings to war tapes on BFBC2 and prepare to have your head blown off, lol!

Am thinking of getting a pair soon

 

Are the sounds really different compared to using a normal pair of sony headphones?

Here's a dilemma, when using headphones is it best to use Ninja Pro or SitRep Pro?

Ninja Pro cancels out your footsteps, so any footsteps you hear are anyone's but yours. However, many other people use Ninja Pro...especially in S&D.

SitRep Pro makes other people's footsteps louder by 25%...so this means you can hear people using Ninja Pro, however your own footsteps can smother the sound of other people.

if it's a small in building kind of map like favela or a small map etc, i'd use sit rep unless there are people using h beat sensors. just walk while crouching and people cant hear you then. yes it is slower but much safer in s&d!

You can learn to differentiate between yours and other people's footsteps quite quickly.
It's not hard considering you know when you're running, you don't have to think , 'Is that me running now even though I've just moved my stick to run?'
And even though Ninja Pro doesn't make you absolutely silent, because the footsteps are that quiet, SitRep Pro won't actually make that big of a difference unless you're sat absolutely still with zero background noise.

i havent tried any of these, ive just been using bog standard pioneer headphones for the minute due to limited finances. it wont be long before im in a position to invest in some decent ones and cant wait from all the feedback ive seen.

 

the px21's do look amazing but when ive been looking online i keep coming back to the tritton ax pro's. they look amazing aswell and are true 5.1 (but cost way more).

 

is there anyone on here that has tried both sets of headphones? these px21's sound awsome but i dont know anyone who's tried the ax pro's so if money wasnt a factor would the px21's still be your first choice?

I bought AX 180s, the pro's were way too expensive for me.

Stereo sound headphones are fantastic, so I can't imagine how awesome 5.1 SRS would be! :D

Decided to go against buying P21s because:

1) I trust Tritton as a brand name
2) Ax 180s work with PS3, Xbox, Wii, Mac, PC and iPods. :D
3) Not as common.
4) Good reviews

im hoping by the time im in a position to upgrade i'll have enough for the pro's (approx £150 last time i looked) but if not i'll have to consider other options. p21s look great as do the 180's and both seem like really good value for money considering the quality of product.

btw where did you buy your 180's from? when i look on the net the only place i can see to get them from is usa or canada with amazon being the most recognisable. if you got yours from usa/canada did you have to specify anything re the uk ac setup (eg: three pin socket etc)?

It took me about a week, but I found a UK online retailer. :)

Took 4 days to deliver, pretty good service. However, they don't send you an email telling you they've dispatched it...I had to email them with a query.

They make a massive amount of difference, sound is such an important factor which so many people (like myself) overlook.

 

I now use my ears just as much as my eyes when playing and I have to admit it does give you a major advantage because you can hear which direction someone is coming from, allowing you to take aim before they get there. :D

 

I've been accused of hacking because of this extra perception it gives you. :Lol:
