Turtle Beach just announced the Elite Pro Tournament Gaming Headset, which brings to market multiple first-and-only innovations in the core mechanics of headset design, weight and fit. It is the first gaming headset designed from the ground-up for eSports athletes, delivering immersive game sound and clear team chat, plus innovative comfort-driven technologies to ensure players stay comfortable and cool under fire.
Turtle Beach claims the Elite Pro’s 50mm Nanoclear speakers deliver more efficient, crisper audio with less distortion for a game changing sound experience, while the Pro Gaming Microphone with TruSpeak Technology provides crystal clear chat so your commands are always heard. The Elite Pro debuts multiple innovations:
- 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.
