[CES 2013] Gaming after-hours is an absolute must if you’re an adult with a 9-5 job, a wife and maybe children as the only downtime you probably have is when everyone is asleep. The last thing you want to do is wake everyone up from their slumber with, what you consider to be, your sweet sounds of gaming bliss. Turtle Beach is one of the leaders in the gaming-headset market, and at this year’s CES, they announced a number of cross-platform headsets that you’re going to want to start saving now for.
The first sets of gaming headsets they’re announcing are the next generation of their wireless headset line. The Ear Force XP510 for Xbox 360 and Ear Force XP51 for PS3 include Turtle Beach’s proprietary digital signal processor, Dolby Digital surround sound, Dual Band Wi-Fi, a rechargeable lithium polymer battery and are Bluetooth compatible. With a full charge, both headsets have a 15 hour lifespan, which is a nice amount of time just to get into Skyrim. Both the XP510 and PX51 will be available in Q1 2013 for $289.99 and $269.99, respectively.
Turtle Beach’s Ear Force Seven Series offer tournament-grade quality for the everyday gamer. Their Ear Force XP Seven for console, Z Seven for PC and M Seven for mobile gaming include a touch capacitive Audio Control unit that gives players control over the mix of the game, chat and microphone audio levels. Through the Audio Control unit, players can access up to eight game and chat audio presets, which hopefully means you’ll suck just a little bit less when playing Black Ops II.
Turtle Beach is also offering new headsets for you PC gamers out there with their Ear Force Z Seven, Ear Force Z300 and Ear Force Z22. The Z Seven will be made available for those PC players who absolutely need tournament-grade cans on their ear holes, while the Z300 will offer wireless audio along with Dual Band Wi-Fi, a rechargeable lithium polymer battery and Bluetooth technology. The last headset, the Z22, is a USB-powered headset that offers both mobile and analog inputs and features Chat Boost and Bass and Treble Boost.
