Available for less than $50, the Ear Force X12 from Turtle Beach is one of the most affordable headsets around, and it’s just about impossible to find something that will give you more for your money. Turtle Beach impresses out of the gate with several excellent features like inline volume control and a mic monitor. The latter of which is a stand-out feature, letting you hear yourself through the headphones so you don’t end up accidentally screaming into the mic. Combined with excellent build-quality, sound, comfort, and mic clarity, these cans are punching above their weight and come out pretty well against sets that cost twice as much.
