Drivers for Turtle Beach Headsets

PC compatible Turtle Beach headsets with USB amplifiers/transmitters do not require separate USB drivers provided by Turtle Beach to function on a PC. If the headset uses a USB connection for audio output/input, generic USB drivers for the headset should install automatically. This may take a few minutes, after which the headset will be available in the Sound Settings.

If the headset only requires a USB connection for power (or connects solely to a headset jack), no drivers will install as the PC will not recognize the headset as an individual audio device. Your PC should only detect that a device is plugged into the headset jack. Please reference the table below to see if your headset only uses analog connections or receives audio via USB:

USB Chat/Audio Interface USB for Power and/or Analog Only (Not a USB Headset)
  • Elite 800
  • P11
  • PLa
  • PX22
  • PX3
  • Recon 320
  • Stealth 450
  • Stream Mic
  • Tactical Audio Controller
  • Z22
  • Z300
  • Z60
  • PX24
  • Recon 50
  • Recon 50P
  • Recon 50X
  • Stealth 350VR
  • X12
  • Z11

Note: this list only includes headsets that are designed for PC.

DTS Headphone:X Surround Sound and Audio Hub Drivers

A small number of Turtle Beach PC Headsets require a separate driver provided by Turtle Beach to enable DTS Headphone:X 7.1 or Dolby surround sound. Those headsets and links to their drivers are below:

    What About The XO Seven Pro It Says That It's Compatible With A Mobile Therefore A Laptop/Desktop As Well But There Aren't Any Drivers For It Here It Would Be Appreciated If You Could Add Them As It Isn't Installing The Drivers Naturally Like The First Time I Plugged Them Into My Laptop So Any Help Would Be Appreciated.

    The XO7 pro connects to mobile devices directly via its standard 3.5mm connection. There is no driver needed, nor usb connection as with the models listed here.

    im using the Earforce Z60 headphones and i have massive problems. First i could only use chat or game audio, not both. now when i speak in skype i cant hear my friends and i can hear my self speaking. even when my pc is off, i still hear my self clearly. i tested this by blowing to the microphone and i hear that annoying "Chhhhhhhh". How could i fix this?


    I Have tried:

    Swap USB ports

    Restart my PC

    Windows Mixer

    Swapping audio modes

    Re-plugging the mic

    Re-plugging the headphones

    Using another computer

    You appear to be having a few install issues. You will want to try the complete user guide and not the quick start.

    You can find the complete user guide here:

    That will give you details for your setup and use, such as turning the mic monitor(hearing yourself when you speak into the mic) on or off via the button on the volume unit.
