Turtle Beach revealed today their plans for expanding their line up of headsets. This time, the focus is on the PC gaming market, in collaboration with eSports teams such as Astralis, OpTic Gaming and the Houston Outlaws.
Three new headsets, with their own set of features, functionality and pricing has been revealed and you can preorder them now at your local retailer store. The new line up is called Atlas, the Elite Atlas with a MSRP of €99.99, and the Atlas Three and Atlas One with MSRPs of €79.99 and €49.99, respectively.
“Turtle Beach is a leading gaming audio brand because we constantly innovate to design high-quality headsets with features that gamers want, so we’re clearly excited to extend our portfolio with the Atlas products for PC gamers. This expansion is a great move for us because in addition to our already strong performance in console gaming headsets, we’ll now have the ability to attract both dedicated and cross-platform PC gamers through our new Atlas lineup. When we set out on the path to grow our presence in PC, it included conducting consumer research and working with our partners on key design elements, resulting in what we believe is a great first assortment of PC headsets. Each Atlas headset – whether at the €50, €80, or €100 price point – offers PC gamers the audio performance and comfort Turtle Beach is known for. Moving forward we intend to leverage our technology, innovation, and best practices, to continue leading the console gaming headset business through our Recon, Stealth and Elite
products, with equal focus and energy behind our new Atlas line that’s built for PC gamers.” –Juergen Stark, CEO, Turtle Beach Corporation
“As a player and as a team, it’s a privilege to have worked with Turtle Beach in the making of the Elite Atlas and the rest of their new Atlas line,” said Nicolai “dev1ce” Reedtz of Astralis. “We tested and provided a lot of feedback and suggestions during the development process in an effort to ensure the Elite Atlas is the best possible headset for PC esports pros, but also for any PC gamers. We’re excited to be a part of the whole process and can’t wait until gamers can get Turtle Beach’s Atlas headsets.
“The continued rise of esports has put tremendous pressure on organizations to deliver exceptionally high audio quality,” said Ryan Musselman, SVP of Global Partnerships, Infinite Esports & Entertainment. “Turtle Beach continues to deliver pro-level audio for the competitive gamer, and the Atlas PC headsets provide a reliable lineup of top-tier audio performance for the aspiring, established, and experienced esports athlete.”
If you are one of the lucky ones who got their ticket to attend Gamescom next, you will get the opportunity to try out the Elite Atlas before they arrive the stores in September.
