Turtle Beach Announces New eSports Headset & More
Turtle Beach has taken the wraps of some brand new products including the Turtle Beach Elite Pro Tournament Gaming Headset, Elite Pro Tactical Audio Controller (T.A.C.) and Elite Pro accessories designed for competitive gamers. This "Elite" series of products is said to represent the highest level in audio and build quality, and the all-new Elite Pro Headset, T.A.C. and Elite Pro accessories are the Company’s all-new line of competitive gaming audio gear created to meet the demands of today’s professional and aspiring pro teams and players.
The Elite Pro Headset’s journey began in 2013. Seeing the consistent growth and popularity of eSports, Turtle Beach launched a comprehensive scientific research program to deeply examine the needs of professional and hardcore gamers as it pertained to game audio, communicating with teammates, and overall comfort. The result is the all-new Elite Pro Tournament Gaming Headset - a ground-up redesign of the competitive gaming headset that brings to market multiple first-and-only innovations in the core mechanics of headset design, weight and fit. Not only does the Elite Pro Headset provide Turtle Beach’s best-in-class game audio and chat performance, but also delivers groundbreaking comfort-driven technologies, including the ComforTec Fit System with multiple adjustment points for a truly personalized headset fit and feel, Aerofit™ Ear Cushions that stay cool in the heat of battle, and Turtle Beach’s all-new patented ProSpecs Glasses Relief System that finally makes wearing a gaming headset comfortable for players who wear glasses.
The Elite Pro Tactical Audio Controller. is the most powerful audio controller ever designed for eSports, combining cutting-edge audio technology like DTS™ Headphone:X 7.1 Surround Sound and Superhuman Hearing™ with incredibly powerful chat and microphone tuning tools, giving eSports athletes everything they need to win. The Elite Pro Headset, T.A.C. and accessories are planned to launch globally this summer, and are currently available for pre-order starting today at participating retail outlets worldwide.
Further, the Elite Pro Tactical Audio Controller offers much more beyond DTS Headphone:X 7.1 Surround Sound and Superhuman Hearing. The T.A.C. has an all-new fingertip slide system that brings the power of a robust tournament grade gaming audio mixer under instant control, and includes breakthrough features such as the Background Noise Limiter on your microphone and the Outbound Mic Boost control, both built specifically for team play at eSports events. The T.A.C.’s Background Noise Limiter helps eliminate distractions via providing tunable mic levels, while the Outbound Mic Boost feature is there to ensure every word is heard loud and clear by teammates, even over the roar of the crowd during those crucial last-minute encounters that lead to victory. The Elite Pro T.A.C. can also be used as a full, external USB 7.1 Surround Sound card on your PC, and multiple T.A.C.s can quickly and easily be daisy-chained together using standard Ethernet cables to form a LAN chat network anywhere. -
Turtle Beach also announced that the above products, when combined with the optional Elite Pro accessories (each sold separately), gamers will have in their possession the absolute ultimate pro gaming audio setup designed to help them win. Additional Elite Pro accessories include:
- Elite Pro Tournament Noise-Cancelling Microphone - A breakthrough active noise-cancelling microphone built for eSports. Add the Elite Pro Tournament Noise-Cancelling Microphone to the Elite Pro Headset and T.A.C. for game-changing chat performance that isolates the high-sensitivity microphone from the roar of the crowd.
- Elite Pro Tactical Audio Adapter for Xbox One - Turtle Beach’s Elite Pro Tactical Audio Adapter for Xbox One offers players features including Superhuman Hearing, Dynamic Chat Boost™, Bass Boost, Mic Monitoring and Turtle Beach’s signature audio presets.
