The Bottom Line The Ear Force P21 headset may not support surround sound, but it is a solid stereo headset for voice chatting in Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 games. Attractively priced and full of great features, the PS3 Wireless Headset provides above-average sound quality and hassle-free performance. With their accurate 7.1-channel separation, the Turtle Beach Ear Force X41 headphones are great surround-sound headphones for the Xbox 360--or any other home theater component. The PX5 is easily one of the best wireless surround sound gaming headsets we've ever tested. While its $250 price tag is high, the set should satisfy gamers for years to come. The software, however, won't work with Macs. The Ear Force P21 headset may not support surround sound, but it is a solid PlayStation 3 accessory that supports in-game chat.
