The Ear Force PX3 headset lets you dominate your competition with digital signal processing, wireless game sound, crystal-clear communication and the convenience of a rechargeable battery. Featuring a lightweight, circumaural ear cup design with massive 50mm speakers, the PX3 delivers exceptional audio quality and maximum comfort.
While designed primarily for the PS3, the PX3 also works great as an XBOX and PC gaming headset. When used in PS3 and XBOX modes, the PX3’s unique digital signal processor provides game and chat audio presets that tune the headset sound for different gaming situations. Presets can also be replaced with different ones downloaded from the Turtle Beach website. There’s also a rechargeable battery that provides more than 15 hours of game play between charges. The battery can be charged while gaming, so you’ll never miss out on the action. If you’re serious about gaming, then get serious about the sound. Step up to the PX3 and experience game audio like never before.
The Ear Force® PX3/DSS2 bundle includes a PX3 headset and a DSS2 which turns the PX3 into a Dolby® surround sound wireless headset. This combination provides wireless Dolby® surround sound on an XBOX and PS3 game console. The PX3 provides wireless PS3 chat and wired XBOX Live chat, as well as programmable presets that give you a competitive advantage over other gamers by letting you hear sounds that can’t be heard with standard headsets. Combining outstanding comfort with a lightweight design and enhanced online communication, the PX3 puts you in the middle of the action so you’ll enjoy a gaming experience that’s second to none.

- Ear Guard™ with Blast Limiter - Limit the intensity of deafening game sounds such as explosions and gunfire to reduce ear fatigue during long gaming sessions.
- PS3/XBOX 360®/PC/Mac Compatible - Delivers the ultimate gaming experience with XBOX 360 and PS3 consoles. The PX3 also works with PC & Mac computers via USB cable.
The PX3 lets you customize the way game and chat signals are processed. You can configure each preset with different settings to enhance specific parts of the sound.
With the press of a button, you can completely change your sound environment and hear sound cues you’d normally miss. For instance, you can select a preset that isolates the sound of footsteps in the distance while honing in on the sound of an enemies reloading or bullet casings hitting the floor. Many of the presets also incorporate a unique Blast Limiter feature that reduces ear fatigue by automatically controlling the volume of extremely loud sounds, like explosions, without affecting other sounds in the game.
Game presets change the way the headset processes game sounds, so you can tune in to the important sounds at critical parts of the game. For example, if you're having a hard time hearing footsteps while playing your favorite FPS, just load up a preset that makes footsteps louder and you can suddenly hear them over loud gunfire and explosions, just as if you had super human hearing.
Chat presets manipulate the voices from XBOX Live and PlayStation Network chat. Have a teammate or friend who's always huffing and puffing into the mic? Just load up a preset that kills off really quiet chat sounds so you don't have to listen to the breathing. You could use a chat preset to limit burst volume if you've got a friend prone to victory-yelling. Or, load the Chat Boost preset if you can't hear your teammates over the roar of loud game blasts.
Update Your Headset
Register and download software to upload new presets to your PX3. New and useful presets will be regularly updated and download-able directly from TurtleBeach.com/Presets. The possibilities are endless and the concept is revolutionary.
The game and chat presets give you a huge competitive advantage by allowing you to hone in on sounds your enemies can’t even hear, while making sure communication with your team is crystal-clear.
