Turtle Beach’s 2018 Portfolio is Headlined by the Company’s New Atlas Line of PC Gaming Headsets, New Console Headsets Priced Under $100, and its Flagship Elite Pro 2 + SuperAmp Pro Performance Gaming Audio System
San Diego, CA – November 19, 2018 – In a year of significant growth in the video game industry, leading gaming headset and audio accessory brand Turtle Beach (Nasdaq: HEAR) continues driving its strong performance as the Company heads into the 2018 holiday season with its richest offering of new, high-quality gaming headsets. With the majority of its 2018 lineup now available both in-stores and online, Turtle Beach has a variety of headsets designed to work with Xbox One, PlayStation®4, Nintendo Switch™, PC, and mobile/tablet devices, giving players the ability to choose the ideal model that suits the type of gamer they are and their budget.
“Turtle Beach’s year-over-year success stems from our ability to consistently design the widest assortment of high-quality products that empower a diverse audience of gamers,” said Juergen Stark, CEO, Turtle Beach. “This year we’re expanding the Turtle Beach brand even further with our new Atlas line which includes three different headsets for PC gamers, additional headset options under $100 with our new Stealth 300 and Recon 200 headsets, and by launching the successor to our flagship Elite Pro line with the Elite Pro 2 + SuperAmp Pro Performance Gaming Audio System.”
Stark continued: “This year’s full lineup, with the exception of a couple surprises still to be revealed, are now available in-stores and online and we’ve already seen positive feedback from gamers, our partnered teams and streamers, as well as very favorable reviews from publications like Game Informer, Windows Central, and more. We’ve got a great new lineup and are looking forward to a strong holiday season to help us continue this year’s strong performance.”
Turtle Beach’s 2018 lineup is headlined by the Company’s commitment to PC gamers and the introduction of its all-new Atlas line of gaming headsets built for PC. Designed in collaboration with leading esports teams, including Astralis, OpTic Gaming, and the Houston Outlaws, Turtle Beach’s Atlas line features three different models, including the Elite Atlas Pro Performance PC Gaming Headset, the powerful Atlas Three Amplified PC Gaming Headset, and the versatile Atlas One PC Gaming Headset, each one offering PC gamers an innovative set of features, functionality and pricing.
Additionally, with the influx of new gamers in the market – driven significantly in part by the popular new Battle Royale genre and games like Fortnite, PUBG, and Call of Duty: Black Ops 4’s Blackout mode – Turtle Beach has expanded its sub-$100 product range with the Stealth 300 and Recon 200 series amplified gaming headsets. Further, September also marked the launch of the highly-acclaimed Elite Pro 2 + SuperAmp Pro Performance Gaming Audio System – the successor to Turtle Beach’s original flagship Elite Pro headset that redefined gamers’ expectations for audio performance and comfort in a competitive gaming headset.
The Elite Pro 2 + SuperAmp Pro Performance Gaming Audio System for Xbox One and PS4™ builds on the legacy that began with Turtle Beach’s original Elite Pro headset from 2016 to deliver the next generation of pro-level audio required by today’s top competitive and hardcore gamers. The Elite Pro 2 + SuperAmp bundle is built for Xbox One and PS4™, and also works great with Windows 10 and earlier Windows PCs, and is available for a MSRP of $249.95.
“There are crucial features we need in a headset to be at the top of our game,” said Nick “Ashes” Ridgeway, Assistant General Manager of OpTic Gaming. “The Elite Pro 2 + SuperAmp checks all of those boxes for us: crisp voice communication, detailed sounds, and our own customized EQ so we always have the audio advantage over our competition.”
The Elite SuperAmp Pro Performance Gaming Audio Controller offers gamers an entirely new way to elevate and control their audio with their existing wired headset. The Elite SuperAmp delivers powerful amplified surround sound and connects via Bluetooth® to the Turtle Beach Audio Hub mobile app on Android or iOS devices where gamers can personalize a variety of settings. The Elite SuperAmp is built for Xbox One and PS4™, and also works great with Windows 10 (Xbox One version) and earlier Windows PCs (PS4™ version), and is available exclusively at www.turtlebeach.com for a MSRP of $149.95.
The official gaming headset of none other than DrDisRespect himself, the Recon 200 Amplified Gaming Headset delivers powerful game sound with enhanced bass and crystal-clear chat. The Recon 200 is built for Xbox One & PS4™, and also works great with Nintendo Switch™, PC, and mobile/tablet devices, and has a MSRP of $59.95.
“The Recon 200 is a bass-boosted, shatter-your-skull, extremely tactical headset built to take you to the next level,” said DrDisRespect. “Nothing even comes close. It’s time to step-up and show me what you’ve got! The Recon 200…BOOM!”
