Turtle Beach Unveils Massive Line-Up Of Headsets For Xbox One, PS4, PC
Turtle Beach has unleashed a massive line-up of new gaming accessories for PS4, Xbox One and PC gamers with high-end headsets due to launch later this year.
In the press release, they announce that they have the first ever 7.1 DTS gaming headset with surround sound coming for the Xbox One and the PS4. The Xbox One edition of the 7.1 headset is called the Ear Force Stealth 500X and it features wireless compatibility for up to 15 hours of continuous gaming.
The Ear Force Stealth 500X has been finely tuned specifically for racing, shooter and action games. Unsurprisingly, it fits the genres that fulfill the target demographic of Microsoft's system.
Joining the Ear Force Stealth 500X is the Ear Force XO One, which is like the baby brother of the Ear Force Stealth 500X. This joins Turtle Beach's other line of Xbox One headsets, including the XO Four, XO Seven, and Titanfall Atlas.
The company also has a line-up of brand new devices in the works for the PlayStation 4 as well, including three brand new headsets. The headliner of the group is the Turtle Beach Elite 800, hailed in the press release as the “most technologically-advanced” wireless gaming headset that's ever been made. There's no way to know for sure if that's true, but Tritton makes some darn good headsets, too, and I tend to doubt that the Elite 800 is that far advanced from what the competitors have to offer. Even still, the Elite 800 makes use of the DTS headphone X 7.1 surround sound and active noise cancellation for the speakers and microphone.
As mentioned in the press release...
“Dual invisible microphones provide high-quality chat audio and a clean, boom-free look. Rocker plate controls makes using features easy and keeps the Elite 800 looking sharp. Customize the look of the Elite 800 with a wide range of snap-on speaker plates available at TurtleBeach.com. A low profile magnetic charging stand keeps the Elite 800 charged without cables and the rechargeable battery provides up to 15 hours of playing time.”
The lower-profile version of the Elite 800 is called the Elite 400, containing many of the same features but slightly lower spec'd. On the bottom end of the turnpike is the Ear Force P12, a wired USB headset that's designed to work with the PS3, PS4 and the PS Vita. The Elite 400 is planned to arrive on July 10th.
Turtle Beach also has a brand new Tournament Audio Controller on the way that provides fingertip control over all the important audio details that change the way you hear and consume auricular content through your headset.
The TAC is designed to be compatible with select Turtle Beach headsets for the Xbox 360, PS3, PS4, Xbox One and PC.
Speaking of PC, there's a brand new Heroes of the Storm stereo headset based on Blizzard's new property, sporting open-ear cups and 50mm speakers. A high-sensitivity, adjustable microphone joins the the feature-list and in-line controls allow users to get the most out of their listening experience.
The Heroes of the Storm headset will be joined by the Ear Force Recon 320, which is a smaller more affordable headset designed for gaming enthusiasts. You'll be able to crank up the volume with full 7.1 surround sound support and Neodymium speakers that aim to deliver high-end audio quality.
