Turtle Beach's super-sized headphone display above certainly caught my eye (alongside a few other attendees, who ran to pose inbetween). With my jaws still agape, I was wrangled in by their E3 team to give their best gaming Ear Force XP 7 headphones a go.

The  5.1 Dolby Digital gaming cans are engineered to keep chat between gamers discernible even in the din of common overblown in-game sound effects, with cushy memory foams cups isolating gamers from ambient sounds and feeling quite comfortable (even on my big head). Even in the raucous halls of E3, the headphones did a great job of noise-canceling, while protecting the quality of the demo's dialogue.

The XP Seven model is priced at $279.95, available now.
