What’s in the box?
The box contains the headset, mic boom, Xbox One audio adaptor, manuals, USB cable, inline amplifier, Xbox 360 chat cable and other cables.
A Closer Look
The Restricted Colonial Military Use Only printing on the side of the headset made me smile!
And here is the headset connected up to an Xbox One Titanfall controller for that full on Titanfall effect.
And if you want to use the headset with an Xbox 360 you can use the supplied inline amplifier.
Turtle Beach worked directly with Respawn to create headset design with all the graphics, so if you are a huge Titanfall fan this is headset for you!
In order to get the headset to work on an Xbox One you need to perform an update to the controller with the adaptor attached. The adaptor has a sticker on it to remind you of this, also there is documentation in the package too – but don’t worry, as soon as your Xbox One detects the adaptor connected it tells you that you need to perform an update (assuming your Xbox One is up to date with the latest update) and you perform this by connecting the controller and adaptor to your Xbox One using the supplied cable. The whole thing takes about a minute and then you are good to go.
The headset will also work on an Xbox 360, mobile devices, PC’s and even PS4’s and PS3’s (although Turtle Beach don’t mention that on the box).
The headset is very solid and felt quite comfortable to wear for long periods of time (although to begin with they felt quite tight), and anyone who has seen how long I have spent playing Titanfall will see that is a long time! The ear cups are made from a breathable mesh so they don’t get all sweaty while you play, and the position of the cups can be altered very easily.
The sound quality is very good– you can hear every shot, and even the sickening sound of your neck being broken when someone sneaks up on you from behind. The is a bass boost option too, but that only works on the Xbox 360 and PC, not on the Xbox One.
The Titanfall Ear Force Atlas Official Gaming Headset is available now for £119.99.
