The turtle beach elite 800 wireless is comfortable and has many features. Even though they have active noise cancellation, the sound quality isn’t very good, and they don’t block out much outside noise. Note that we tested this headset for the PS4, but we expect the turtle beach elite 800 wireless for the Xbox One to work the same way.

What Are The Turtle Beach Elite 800 Wireless?

The turtle beach elite 800 wireless gaming headphones are a high-end product made for gaming and other uses. They can be used wirelessly and have active noise cancellation, DTS surround sound and an audio EQ that you can change. They also have a microphone built-in for talking and touch controls for changing the sound settings. These headphones can be used with consoles, PCs, and mobile devices, among other things.

Design and Build

Turtle Beach Elite 800 Wireless

The turtle beach elite 800 wireless is perfect in how it is made and looks like something from the future. It has a matte black headband and ear cups for stationary gaming. There is a bright blue accent around it. It is made of fake leather, and the earbud has a foam cushion. The controls are hidden under a transparent glass-like cover on the ear cups, which adds to the futuristic look. Since the headband is made of plastic, it can feel cheap, but the pads help cover the cracking sound when stretched.

The Elite 800 is heavier than most gaming headsets but very comfortable. It is easy to rock back and forth if you move too quickly or use it for anything other than stationary gaming. The magnetic stand for charging the headset also makes it look better because it pulls it up. You will love seeing the headset on its stand for charging. Even though having buttons on the Turtle Beach Elite 800 can have unintended effects because trust us, you will always press the wrong button. It will take some time to get used to and learn how to use it, but it will be worth it.

We can’t say enough good things about the Elite 800 from Turtle Beach. The turtle beach elite 800 wireless has two hidden microphones and cutting-edge noise cancellation and mic monitoring features. Users can change how loud they speak and avoid shouting by listening to their voice prompts.

Active noise cancellation technology in the two hidden microphones lets only your voice be heard and blocks out other sounds. The Elite 800 also has a lot of controls that make it easier to use. It is very sensitive to pressure. Because they are so sensitive, some users find them annoying. But once you figure out how to use it, it’s fun.

The sound quality of the turtle beach elite 800 wireless is great, and you’ll enjoy it more on a Play Station console. If you want to use them on a PC with DTS:X, you need a good sound card that supports Dolby Digital live. Even though it doesn’t give you the full 7.1 surround sound experience, you might expect from several sound drivers, its surround sound technology is real and can be heard at work.

The headset cuts out the noise and focuses on important sounds, like footsteps, teammates talking, or enemies trash-talking over the game sounds. The headset’s surround sound gives users a 3D 360-degree sound stage with spatial accuracy that has never been seen before. The Ear Force Hub on Android and Tablets can change the headset.

Switching between devices is easier when you have Bluetooth. The Elite 800 can connect to multiple devices simultaneously, and users don’t have to disconnect from one to use the other. Users can play games, stream music from their phones, and watch movies on their computers simultaneously. You can keep using the headset even if the battery dies by plugging in the 3.5mm cable. Bluetooth also has a range of 30 feet, which makes it a great headset for watching your game from afar.
