The EarForce PX4 also states that it has “Interference-free, Dual-Band Wi-Fi technology” thanks to using both the 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz range. While I didn’t get any interference at all during my time gaming across any of the consoles I used, I did notice very slight digital hum/hiss from the headset. This happened whether I was using with and without the mic, so it seems like the norm for the headset itself. At first I was a little concerned, but during any game session I didn’t notice the hiss, it was only during times when audio was very low or during silent periods in games.
Overall I thought the effect was great but there were a few occasions when it didn’t feel right, though this was mostly in Infamous Second Son which seems to have a number of audio issues anyway. The audio from the Turtle Beach EarForce PX4 was also much clearer than the Sony Wireless Headset 2.0 which produces 7.1 surround sound effects. I tested both headsets with the same games on the PS4 and each time I preferred the audio quality that was coming out of the PX4, although the Sony headset was no slouch and is completely wire-free.
Overall I have found the Turtle Beach EarForce PX4 headset to be quite a step-up from the cheaper Sony Headset 2.0 which I own, the sound quality is much better in both quality and surround feel. The battery lasts a long time too, getting very close to the 15 hours that Turtle Beach have been advertising. The PX4 also has a lot of flexibility for those of us with multiple gaming devices, you can use it on just about anything and get Virtual Surround sound out of it.
Bearing in mind that the Turtle Beach EarForce PX4 comes with a wireless transmitter, the setup isn’t as simple as say the Sony Wireless Headset 2.0 on the PlayStation 4. You connect the transmitter via USB to one of your free ports on your game console and then run the included optical cable to the optical out port on your Xbox One, 360, PS4/PS3 or PC. Depending on how you run sound from your console, you may need to adjust some settings on your machine to get the audio to come out. This isn’t difficult and is explained in the instruction manual in very good detail.
