Back in March last year, Turtle Beach announced that it would be acquiring German PC peripheral brand ROCCAT. This week, the first product from the acquisition has been anounced, and it’s the ELO PC gaming headset series.
There are three different ELO variations PC gamers can choose from. There’s the ELO X Stereo, the ELO 7.1 USB, and the ELO 7.1 Air. Read on below for product specs of each as well as what each looks like.
Designed for stereo enthusiasts and multiplatform gamers, the Elo X Stereo delivers supreme sound powered by precision-tuned 50mm drivers. Its extended cross-platform compatibility via a 3.5mm jack complements premium comfort features including memory foam cushions and a self-adjusting metal headband for a unique, weightless fit. Class-leading Turtle Beach audio technologies include the high-sensitivity, high-performance TruSpeak™
microphone and patented ProSpecs™ glasses- friendly comfort. The Elo X Stereo comes with a PC audio splitter and feels like a feature-packed premium product with an attractive MSRP of $49.99.
The Elo 7.1 USB offers exceptional, immersive 7.1 channel surround sound powered by its precision-tuned 50mm drivers. It also boasts Turtle Beach audio innovations such as the high-sensitivity, high-performance TruSpeak™
microphone for crystal-clear communication, plus Variable Mic Monitoring to help avoid shouting, and ProSpecs™ glasses-friendly ear cushions. In addition to premium comfort features like memory foam cushioning and a self-adjusting metal headband, the Elo 7.1 USB also works with ROCCAT’s AIMO lighting system offering vivid color customizations. The Elo 7.1 USB will be available for a competitive MSRP of $69.99.
The Elo 7.1 Air is the top-end wireless model of the series. It offers exceptional, immersive 7.1 channel surround sound via powerful 50mm drivers and adds Turtle Beach’s exclusive Superhuman Hearing® sound setting for a competitive advantage. Elo 7.1 Air uses ROCCAT’s Stellar Wireless technology for a dependable wireless connection as good as, and sometimes faster than, a wired connection, as well as a long-lasting battery that averages 24-hours of use. The Elo 7.1 Air is also a new addition to ROCCAT’s AIMO product portfolio and will be available for a MSRP of $99.99.
We’ll try and get our mitts on some of these for a performance review as well.
