Turtle Beach E3 2015 Preview


It was time to visit Turtle Beach, and they showed off their line of products, which are all lightweight and affordable for all systems: PS4, Xbox One, and PC. There’s even a hybrid headset that’ll work on all three, and just need to move the slider to adjust the settings appropriately. Lastly, there was a surprise I never could have seen coming, or heard.

X Series (Green) / P Series (Blue) / (Red)


The models shown to us were: Ear Force PX24, Ear Force Recon 30X, Ear Force Recon 50, Ear Force Recon 50P, Ear Force Recon 50X, Ear Force Recon 60P, Ear Force Stealth 420X, and the Ear Force Stealth 450. All of these are very slick in design, and visually distinct.

Turtle Beach has pretty much parity on all of their headsets. All of their models and styles are color-coded and designed to be light, comfortable, and for wearing in long sessions. The synthetic leather used on the earcups are on the X and P-series. Turtle Beach has always impressed me, and they don’t stop with just the headsets.



This was the surprise of the day. Designed for the hearing impaired, these thin speakers beam audio to people, which boost the lows like voices in television and movies. There are thoughts for other applications of these, but for right now, when this comes out later this year, will only be available after seeing your audiologist.
