Turtle Beach are looking to push their headset tech to new heights with the upcoming release of their eSports focused Elite Pro headset. Equipped with the Elite Pro Tactical Audio Controller (T.A.C.) and Elite Pro accessories designed for competitive gamers, it looks set to prove a big hit with the eSports scene, as well as enthusiast at-home gamers. which establishes a new standard for eSports gaming audio performance and comfort.
“The Elite Pro Headset’s journey began in 2013. Seeing the consistent growth and popularity of eSports, Turtle Beach launched a comprehensive scientific research program to deeply examine the needs of professional and hardcore gamers as it pertained to game audio, communicating with teammates, and overall comfort. The result is the all-new Elite Pro Tournament Gaming Headset – 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.” – Turtle Beach
Turtle Beach say their new headset delivers “best-in-class game audio and chat performance” and that’s a pretty bold claim and one we don’t doubt they’ll deliver on, but also one we’re eager to test. The headset also uses their new ComforTec Fit System, as well as Aerofit Ear Cussions to make it as comfortable as possible, but even better, the new ProSpecs Glasses Relief System, which finally makes wearing a gaming headset comfortable for players who wear glasses! The Elite Pro T.A.C. features DTS™ Headphone:X 7.1 Surround Sound and Superhuman Hearing™, a powerful chat microphone, with tuning tools, helping ensure you get the best performance.
“Part of Turtle Beach’s core DNA is driving innovation that benefits gamers. Given that we invented the console gaming headset space many years ago, we felt it was only natural for us to reinvent the gaming headset for the current era of eSports to meet the expectations of today’s competitive gamers,” said Juergen Stark, CEO, Turtle Beach Corporation.
Stark continued, “There are plenty of great gaming headsets and audio gear out there, but we saw the need to drive fundamental innovation to make it better for eSports. We spent the past three years developing the Elite Pro Headset, T.A.C. and accessories, working with industry experts and eSports aficionados to ensure we thought of everything. And once we felt like we had it right, we spent months refining every detail to make it perfect. The fact that OpTic Gaming – one of the best pro gaming organizations in the world – chose to partner with us because of the Elite Pro just goes to show this is another game-changing line of products from #TeamTurtleBeach that brings true innovation to the market.”
Hector Rodrigues, Team Manager for OpTic Gaming commented, “Everybody knows Turtle Beach. They’ve been around forever and have some great gaming headsets, so they definitely piqued our curiosity when they told us they were working on a top-secret eSports headset we’d be interested in seeing. So we invited Turtle Beach to the OpTic Gaming house here in Chicago to see what they had in store for us, and the moment they brought out the Elite Pro Headset, T.A.C. and other gear we knew simply by looking at everything that this was a vast departure from what we were expecting. The more we explored and played with the Elite Pro Headset’s features – like the cooling ear cushions, the adjustment you can make to the ear-cups for players who wear glasses, or how you can adjust the overall fit on your head – the more we knew it was revolutionary, and something that the OpTic teams would absolutely want to use. Turtle Beach brought their A-game with the Elite Pro, no questions asked.”
