Roccat Reveals New Elo PC Gaming Headsets
Peter Donnell / 6 months ago
Roccat doesn’t release new products too often, but when they do, it’s usually some worthy of your attention. They make some of the best gaming headsets, mice and keyboards in the business. Thankfully, it looks like that trend is set to continue, with the reveal of their latest PC gaming headset series, Elo. Since Turtle Beach now owns Roccat, they’re basically making Roccat their PC-focused brand, which still benefits from each companies technologies. Which is great, as Turtle Beach headsets sound fantastic and Roccat design is awesome.
There are three new headsets in the Roccat Elo series. All of them are designed to be a premium product, with a comfort-focused design. Foam cushions, a floating metal headband, a lightweight design, it’s certainly ticking all the right boxes.
The Elo X Stereo is a lightweight model and the most affordable at around £39.99. The Elo 7.1 USB model ups the ante with premium 7.1 channel surround sound, ROCCAT’s AIMO intelligent lighting system, Variable Mic Monitoring and a USB connection for an MSRP of £59.99. The Elo 7.1 Air takes things even further with wireless connectivity, Turtle Beach’s patented Superhuman Hearing sound setting for a competitive advantage, and a long-lasting 24-hour battery life for a MSRP of £89.99.
All three Elo series headsets will be available at participating retailers worldwide on October 4, 2020. Pre-order now at ROCCAT.org.
