Turtle Beach look to reinvent eSports competition with the announcement of their latest gaming headset, the Elite Pro.
They have also announced the Elite Pro Tactical Audio Controller (T.A.C.) and Elite Pro accessories designed for competitive gamers, which establishes a new standard for eSports gaming audio performance and comfort.
This headset come to fruition after 3 years of extensive research back 2013, in order to find out the needs of professional and hardcore gamers as it pertained to game audio, communicating with teammates, and overall comfort. This new headset delivers everything gamers need, delivering groundbreaking comfort-driven technologies, including the ComforTec Fit System with multiple adjustment points for a truly personalized headset fit and feel, Aerofit Ear Cushions that stay cool in the heat of battle, and Turtle Beach’s all-new patented ProSpecs Glasses Relief System that finally makes wearing a gaming headset comfortable for players who wear glasses. Innovations include:
- ComforTec Fit System – A revolutionary adjustment system allowing players to truly personalize the fit of the headset to their preference. This includes unique tension controls to adjust the tightness of the headset, plus a floating headband that perfectly distributes the Elite Pro Headset’s weight across the head, and a separate head-size adjustment – all combined to allow gamers independent control of the ear-cup position and headband tension for the first time ever.
- Aerofit Ear Cushions – Where groundbreaking material technologies combine to provide the best of both worlds when it comes to competitive gaming and comfort. The ear pads are wrapped in smooth Asahi spandex fabric combined with unique cooling gel-infused memory foam that keeps players cooler for longer. Additionally, separate internal and external leather sidewalls on the ear-cups isolate the acoustic chambers for better sound while blocking out external noise like the roar of the crowd.
- ProSpecs Glasses Relief System – Turtle Beach’s patented system that provides an easy adjustment built into the ear-cups to create a small channel in the ear cushion allowing gamers who wear glasses to finally play in comfort.
Juergen Stark, CEO, Turtle Beach Corporation stated:
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.
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.
