“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.”

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.
