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. The Carcharias is by far the most comfortable, best-sounding PC gaming headset we've tested in a while. The X31 is a great stereo wireless gaming headset for the Xbox 360, we just wish it could handle Dolby Digital playback. 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.
