Ask a dad what he wants for Father’s Day, and he’ll tell you “oh, anything” or “nothing, I’m happy just spending time with you.” Lies. What that guy wants (and needs) is a Turtle Beach headset for his gaming pleasure. Specifically, the Turtle Beach Ear Force X32 (XBox 360) are a great gift for a gamer-dad. I mean, sure, you could just buy him a gift card to Best Buy (or Future Shop for our Canadian readers), but the dude’s just going to end up buying these for himself.
And if you’re a dad, stop playing coy and just tell your family that you want to ear-hump these headphones so bad that it’s effecting your kill-death ratio.
Now, before we get into it – Turtle Beach does indeed have many headsets – and in fact, many headsets above the X32 in quality. But if you’re looking for a good balance between price and power, the X32 is what you’re looking for.
Maybe you’re a new father, and now that you’ve got a 24-7 responsibility, you’ve kind of made peace with the idea that you just can’t play video games anymore. Maybe you’re a not-recently new father whose family needs to be up early, so your nights usually die at 8:30pm. Either way, you already miss your video games. Why was it that when your wife had her baby, you had to lose yours? Ooh, burn. Just kidding. But the fact is that it has become increasingly harder for you to play your favorite game now that there’s a little one sleeping on the other side of the wall. Evidently, the sounds of war and violence don’t mix well with a sleeping family.
That’s where Turtle Beach’s Ear Force X11 becomes your knight in shining plastic.
