Design and Build
They have covered the Turtle Beach Ear Force i30’s leather headband and ear cups with leather memory foam. It’s a largely-built headphone with the Turtle Beach’s logo printed on both ear cups.
Both square-shaped ear cups have buttons with their functions. The right ear cup houses the Bluetooth button which can also work as a play/pause/call button when tapped.
It also has the volume buttons if you wish to adjust the volume level and an on/off microphone button.
The ear cup on the left side is the power button which also serves as a noise-cancelling button when tapped. It also houses a pair of buttons for bass or treble adjustment of the four different modes. There’s also a button wherein you can switch between four ways of voice-morphing for the microphone.
Supported with Bluetooth 3.0 technology, you can stream audio wirelessly from any source with Bluetooth-enabled devices. Even when it’s on Bluetooth, the Ear Force i30 still manages to produce a sound quality that makes you get carried away with the music. Optionally, you can use the i30 with the detachable cable which is included in the package. It’s ideal for use with non-Bluetooth devices.
The Ear Force i30 performs high and punching audio quality. You can listen to pop music with its excellent mid and lower bass. The treble detail produces clear sounds while the mids has enough loudness to play acoustic tracks without disturbing higher frequencies.
If you want to tweak some of the Ear Force i30’s audio settings, you can. The headphone houses a built-in equalizer to boost the treble and bass of the sound. It has four modes to increase your audio experience.
Active Noise Cancellation (ANC)
Turtle Beach’s Ear Force i30 features a modern noise-cancellation technology that effectively isolates the background noise. It allows you to immerse yourself in your music world. You can disable the ANC with its function button found on the left ear cup.
This headphone is built with a concealed microphone. The microphone features noise filtering technology to have clearer conversations with the other person on the line.
What makes Turtle Beach’s Ear Force i30 more portable? It’s the rechargeable battery! Every single full-charged battery produces 10 hours or more music time. The battery life may depend on the volume level and if the ANC is turned on.
Turtle Beach had remained to produce excellent sound quality even when they merged to the smartphones headsets. I love how I have the capability to change my audio settings aside from the volume with the EQ presets. The noise-cancellation technology is great as well.
