A couple of months ago, a box arrived from headphone specialists Turtle Beach containing a set of PX3 headphones. Just in time for my family to go overseas and talk to me for a month on Skype, and just in time for Battlefield 3, where I'd want my friends to hear me scream as I flew a helicopter into the side of a building.
Good timing, that.
Opening up the box at first, I was a little disappointed. After the surprising good looks of my last set of headphones, tragically destroyed on a flight to Germany, the PX3 looked ugly. Raw. If you were being nice, you'd say they were functional.
