Turtle Beach Launching New Xbox One Headsets
Peter Donnell / 3 years ago
Turtle Beach are well known in the gaming industry for creating some pretty epic headsets, especially when it comes to the console market. With the launch of new consoles just a few months ago there is a distinct lack of new peripherals on the market, and with not all Xbox 360 peripherals being compatible with the Xbox One, we’ve been eager for manufacturers to pick up the pace and release new hardware for the new consoles. Turtle Beach are about to do just that and on March 7th (global) the company will launch a new line of Xbox One compatible headsets.
The XO Series headsets – including the XO Four and XO Seven – were first announced in the summer of 2013. Turtle Beach remains one of only two companies to-date that has announced it will make officially-licensed headsets for the Xbox One console.
The Ear Force XO Seven (UK SRP £129.99) will be available in the UK on March 11 and is a premium headset built on the foundation of the tournament-grade Seven Series, with premium finishes including a padded headband and noise isolating ear cups with memory foam cushions. It also features interchangeable speaker plates so users can customise the look of their headset. The XO Seven is compatible with mobile devices and comes with has a detachable boom mic and a breakaway mobile cable with an in-line mic for phone calls and audio chat.
The Ear Force XO Four (UK SRP £89.99) will be available from March 7 has a 3.5mm cable for use with mobile devices and a detachable boom mic.
“Our partners, retailers and distributors are all reporting that there is significant demand for Xbox One compatible headsets,” said Juergen Stark, Chief Executive Officer at Turtle Beach. “We are happy to share that as of March 7 the best next-generation audio experience will be available to consumers.”
Xbox One may have gotten off to a slower start than the PlayStation 4, but the console is still a big hit with competitive gamers and this new line of premium headsets will no doubt prove popular with the online gaming crowd. We look forward to seeing what else Turtle Beach have to offer as the year goes on.
Thank you Turtle Beach for providing us with this information.
