SAN DIEGO, Oct. 13, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- The Holiday 2016 portfolio from Turtle Beach Corporation (NASDAQ: HEAR), a leading audio technology company for over 40 years, sees the company adding its exclusive Superhuman Hearing™ audio setting to additional key products, as well as entering two burgeoning new markets in Virtual Reality (VR) and Livestreaming.
"Holiday 2016 is here and Turtle Beach has our strongest and most expansive holiday product portfolio ever," said Juergen Stark, CEO, Turtle Beach Corporation. "We continue to develop and deliver innovative products that provide gamers with cutting-edge features and fantastic gaming experiences with high-quality audio. This year we've added Superhuman Hearing to more Turtle Beach headsets so more players can immerse themselves in their games and gain a true competitive advantage through better audio, and now we're also elevating the audio experience for gamers stepping into VR, as well as those looking to take their livestreaming to the next level."
In late September, Turtle Beach launched the all-new STEALTH 520 and STEALTH 420X+ gaming headsets for PlayStation®4 and Xbox One (respectively), each one a significant feature upgrade to their prior best-selling STEALTH 500P and STEALTH 420X models. Headlining the STEALH 520 and STEALTH 420X+'s new features is Turtle Beach's exclusive Superhuman Hearing audio setting which gives players the competitive advantage by allowing them to hear soft sounds like enemy footsteps sneaking-up from behind, or a nearby enemy reloading their weapon around a corner just before an ambush, or a vehicle off in the distance bringing in reinforcements. Superhuman Hearing can also be found in other Turtle Beach gaming headsets, including the ELITE PRO TOURNAMENT GAMING HEADSET and ELITE PRO TACTICAL AUDIO CONTROLLER (T.A.C.), and the PX24 which is one of the best-selling gaming headsets for PS4™.
Beyond arming gamers with Superhuman Hearing so they can hear everything and defeat everyone, Holiday 2016 also has Turtle Beach leading the charge into two new categories – VR and Livestreaming.
In early October Turtle Beach launched the STEALTH 350VR as the first gaming headset specifically designed to be used with the latest VR devices, including PlayStation®VR, PS4 Pro and PS4, Oculus Rift and HTC Vive™. Audio is half the VR experience, and Turtle Beach's STEALTH 350VR headset takes VR gaming audio from good to amazing with features including large 50mm over-ear speakers, 30+ hour battery-powered amplification, accurate 3D surround sound reproduction, Variable Bass Boost, and a lightweight, ergonomic "built for VR" design that provides extra clearance for VR headbands and cables. There's no other VR gaming headset that competes with the features, functionality and price of Turtle Beach's STEALTH 350VR, so if VR is something you're looking at for the holidays, be sure to get the complete VR experience by having amazing audio.
Last but not least is livestreaming. The past few years have seen livestreaming take a massive foothold in gaming, where content creators are actively livestreaming everything from competitive matches for their fans to enjoy to video walkthroughs and tutorials on Twitch and YouTube. This Sunday, October 23, 2016, Turtle Beach will launch the all-new STREAM MIC – a first-of-its-kind professional desktop microphone created for gamers streaming from their consoles. With the STREAM MIC, players can now livestream gameplay directly from their Xbox One, as well as from PS4 Pro and PS4, PC and Mac thanks to universal plug-and-play compatibility.
