Turtle Beach Ear Force i60 Headset Review
Recently Kaeyi Dream looked at the Ear Force PX4 in one of her excellent video reviews. Today on our test bench we have another product from Turtle Beach, the Ear Force i60. A Bluetooth wireless headset the Ear Force i60 is aimed very squarely at the Apple market being compatible with iPhones, iPads and the Mac range. It is also compatible with PCs of course and will also work with other brands of handset… and even airplane entertainment systems. So let us take a look at this headset and see if matches up to the others we have looked at in the Ear Force range.
Packaging and Bundle
Turtle Beach supply the Ear Force i60 in a medium sized package. The front of the package features a large picture of the headset along with iconography highlighting the key features. Turning to the back of the package we find additional information on the features of the headset along with additional imagery where we can clearly see the emphasis of the i60 towards Apple products as the images feature an iPad, and iMac and a Macbook.
Once we have removed the package sleeve we find a plain white box, with only the Turtle Beach logo on the front. The design of the package features a flip front cover, opening from the right hand side. When we open the top cover we find a short paragraph of text from Turtle Beach telling us about the i60.
Opening up the inside cover we get our first glimpse of the headset. It is securely held in place with moulded foam, making sure it doesn’t get damaged in transit. As well as the headset we also find a travel pouch that is supplied as part of the bundle. Lifting the headset out we find a second layer which contains the i60 transmitter. This allows us to use the headset on equipment that does not have Bluetooth as standard. Then underneath the transmitter are the cables that allow us to connect the headset to our equipment.
Finally Turtle Beach have provided a quick start guide. This explains the functions of the headset and transmitter and shows us how to best connect it to our equipment. Also shown above is the travel pouch, which we mentioned previously. This is large enough to hold both the headset and the transmitter along with the cables.
