On the other side of the coin, using the headset on the PC is a breeze, as all you need is the Inline Amplifier and headset. You can technically just use the headset as headphones by plugging in the 3.5 mm jack directly into your computer port, and even remove the mic attachment if you wish. This also works the same with any other devices with 3.5 mm jacks, like mobile devices, iPods, and even handheld gaming systems. By plugging in the headset to the Inline Amplifier and then connecting both its USB cable and 3.5 mm jack to the computer, you can use the headset in the same way as on the Xbox One or Xbox 360.
Moving on from the setup aspect of the Titanfall Ear Force Atlas Official Gaming Headset, let’s talk about the design considering this is a headset themed after Titanfall. The headset looks great by taking the basic color scheme and design of the Atlas Titan and putting it on a headset that looks like something a pilot in the game might actually wear. The red around the earphones themselves definitely stand out, but fit well with the overall grey and blue color scheme. It may not be the best headset for those that want something that looks sleek or aren’t fans of Titanfall, but it’s certainly a very unique and cool looking option for those that like the game.
I will admit that I do not usually get the opportunity to use headsets or headphones like this too often, so it did take a little bit of getting used to at first, but luckily this process did not take long at all. A very soft material covers the inside of the top, so you should have no complaints about uncomfortableness from that area. The actual earphones area is made of a very soft material that molds perfectly around your ears that while not including noise cancelling pads, still block out a lot of outside noise. You also have the ability to adjust the length of each side for some customization, which I highly recommend doing to figure out which is the most comfortable setting for you.
We’ve talked about pretty much everything else, so of course we have to talk about the main feature of the headset, the sound itself. I am certainly no audio expert, but I thought the sound quality was fantastic. It was not too boomy with bass to where you felt it was going to hurt your ears, but provided excellent stereo sound in a variety of different mediums. Using it while gaming was a mass improvement from the regular headset that comes with the Xbox One, as you feel a lot closer to the action with all sounds being right in your ears rather than just out of the TV. Watching a movie, TV, and even YouTube videos sounded beautiful as they were crisp and crystal clear. Combined with the integration of the Kinect, Skype on the Xbox One with the use of this headset was excellent as well. You are able to hear yourself well enough in the headset without echoing problems, while being able to hear the person you are chatting with talk with ease.
This headset is absolutely perfect for Xbox One owners that love gaming and watching movies and TV, but are worried about disturbing roommates. I know I had to rig up something to be able to watch TV late at night without disturbing my roommate in my freshman year of college, but this would have been so much easier by just doing so through the system itself.
Turtle Beach is always known for their quality products and the Titanfall Ear Force Atlas Official Gaming Headset is certainly no different. Built for the Xbox One, Xbox 360, and PC, this headset features varying degrees of ease involving setup, with the Xbox 360 requiring a lot of work and cables. However, it is absolutely perfect for the Xbox One, with the inclusion of the Xbox One Stereo Headset Adapter, as well as for PC. The Ear Force Atlas is about as comfortable as they come, which is perfect for those that plan on using it in long gaming sessions with Titanfall in the coming weeks. For those looking to upgrade to a premier gaming headset, you cannot go wrong with the Titanfall Ear Force Atlas, especially if you like the Titanfall design.Titanfall Ear Force Atlas Official Gaming Headset Review,
