SAN DIEGO, Aug. 26, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Turtle Beach Corporation (NASDAQ: HEAR), the leading-edge audio technology company, today announced it has signed a new strategic partnership with Battery Benelux BV, a Dutch wholesaler for hearing healthcare products, for distribution across Benelux of the Company's breakthrough hearing healthcare device, HyperSound Clear™.
"For 25 years Battery Benelux has proven themselves as a key partner for hearing healthcare professionals across the Benelux region, and in doing so has built a reputation based on quality, flexibility and supportive service," said Chris Auty, Managing Director for EMEA & APAC for Turtle Beach's HyperSound business. "I'm extremely pleased to be entering this distribution partnership with the Battery Benelux team. Their commitment to the customers' success makes them a great representative for HyperSound Clear in the region."
Under the new agreement, Battery Benelux will be responsible for distribution of Turtle Beach's HyperSound Clear product, as well as extending customer service and technical support to hearing care professionals throughout the Benelux region.
"I am very pleased with the cooperation between Turtle Beach and our company," said Edwin Mellink, CEO of Battery Benelux. "With the addition of HyperSound Clear the breadth of our product range becomes even more compelling. HyperSound Clear is a high-end device that improves the home entertainment listening experience for people living with hearing loss. Furthermore, HyperSound Clear also enables hearing health professionals to offer a very distinctive solution by means of the HyperFit™ software, which allows the device to be customized to the listener's hearing profile and preferences."
HyperSound Clear is the Company's first-of-its-kind directed audio solution for individuals with hearing loss. HyperSound® technology is a fundamentally new approach to sound delivery that generates a highly directional, narrow beam of audio in the air, much like the way a flashlight directs a beam of light. When an individual enters the audio beam created by HyperSound Clear, they hear immersive 3D audio. Additionally, HyperSound Clear has been shown to improve sound clarity and speech intelligibility for people with hearing loss for a crisp, clear home entertainment listening experience.
