SAN DIEGO, June 9, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- This coming weekend, Turtle Beach Corporation (NASDAQ: HEAR), a leading audio technology company for over 40 years, officially launches its all-new line of Elite Pro eSports gear, setting a new standard for competitive gaming audio performance and comfort. On Sunday, June 12th, gamers seeking to get their hands on the ultimate eSports audio setup will be able to purchase the all-new Turtle Beach® Elite Pro Tournament Gaming Headset, Elite Pro Tactical Audio Controller (T.A.C.) and additional Elite Pro accessories at leading gaming and consumer electronics retailers worldwide.
Turtle Beach's "Elite" branded products represent the highest level in audio and build quality, and the all-new Elite Pro Headset, Elite Pro T.A.C. and other Elite Pro accessories form 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.
"We have a history of creating industry firsts, and our Elite Pro line defines the future of eSports gaming audio equipment," said Juergen Stark, CEO, Turtle Beach Corporation. "In order to excel against the best gamers in the world, you need to have the best gear. That's why we're excited to have partnered with two of the best eSports organizations in the world with OpTic Gaming and FaZe Clan, who are already using the Elite Pro system in competition and at home. The Elite Pro is a game-changer; designed to help you win. If that sounds like something that appeals to you, then be sure to pick yours up!"
Three years in the making, the Turtle Beach Elite Pro Tournament Gaming Headset is 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. The Elite Pro Headset's all-new 50mm Nanoclear™ speakers deliver more efficient, crisper audio with less distortion for a game-changing sound experience, while the Pro Gaming Microphone with TruSpeak™ Technology provides crystal clear chat to ensure team communication is always heard loud and clear. The Elite Pro Headset also debuts Turtle Beach's latest 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. Additionally, the Elite Pro Headset can be customized with Magnetic Speaker Plates that attach to the outside of the ear-cups, and includes the Circuit Pro™ Cable System that allows for quick and easy connections to all Elite Pro accessories through one easy, universal connection.
The Elite Pro T.A.C. is the most powerful audio controller ever designed for competitive gaming, combining cutting-edge audio technologies 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 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 hardpoint defends and flag captures 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 an offline LAN chat network anywhere.
And when combined with the optional Elite Pro accessories, including the Elite Pro Tournament Noise-Cancelling Microphone, Elite Pro A.M.P. for PlayStation®4 and Elite Pro Tactical Audio Adaptor for Xbox One (each sold separately), gamers will have in their possession the ultimate pro gaming audio setup, designed purely to help them win map after map.
