Turtle Beach have today at PAX East announced a brand new headset for the PlayStation 4.
The headset, The Ear Force P12 amplified stereo gaming headset will be available for £44.99 and will be available on July 10th. It has been specifically designed for the PlayStation 4 and provides high-quality digital game and chat audio through one simple USB connection.
In order to address the audio differences between the PS3 and PS4, the new headset provides louder amplified stereo sound and incorporates two features popular with gamers: Adjustable Bass Boost and Microphone Monitor. An inline amplifier provides easy access to volume control, Base Boost and microphone mute. Large 50mm speakers deliver a full-range of high-quality audio, from crisp highs to thumping lows.
There has been such high demand for the PlayStation 4, and in turn strong demand for gaming headset. Sales data from GfK Chart-Track shows that Turtle Beach had over 57% percent GBP share of the UK gaming headset market in the fourth quarter of 2013, driven in part by strong sales of PlayStation 4 compatible headsets, including the wireless surround sound PX4 and P4C chat communicator. Juergen Stark, Chief Executive Officer of Parametric Sound Corp stated:
Consumers associate the Turtle Beach brand with high-quality, feature-rich gaming headsets, With our market share gains at the end of 2013 and our strong line-up of products for 2014, I am confident our headset business is well-positioned for growth as the console transition accelerates.
