Turtle Beach announced that the next generation of high-end headsets will be available for Xbox 360 and PC later this year. The Ear Force X12 is a USB headset with in-line amplifiers, bass boost and microphone monitoring all for the moderate price of $59.99.

Michael Arzt, VP of Marketing and Sales for Turtle Beach commented in the press release, saying…

“As the record breaking sales of the X1 and X11 have already shown, avid gamers are serious about audio and will seek out equipment that will enhance their experience and skills.” ... “Turtle Beach strives to support serious gamers of all levels by constantly refining and improving even our best-selling products and the new X12 represents this commitment to audio quality and high performance while still retaining the unmatched value that the X-series is known for.”
