Turtle Beach Announces New PS4 Headset at Pax East
Turtle Beach, one of the leading audio brands in the games industry, has announced a new addition to its lineup of gaming headsets for the PS4. The Ear Force P12 amplified stereo gaming headset (UK SRP £44.99).
The P12, which is specially-designed for the PS4 and PS Vita, provides high-quality digital game and chat audio through one simple USB connection. The P12 will be available at retail globally on July 10th.
To address differences in audio output between the PS4 and PS3 consoles, the P12 gaming headset provides louder amplified stereo sound and incorporates two features popular with gamers: Adjustable Bass Boost and Microphone Monitor.
An inline amplifier provides easy access to volume control, Base Boost and microphone mute. Large 50mm speakers deliver a full-range of high-quality audio, from crisp highs to thumping lows.
Consumer demand for the PS4 has exceeded analyst expectations, and next-generation console sales have contributed to strong demand for gaming headsets. According to sales data reported by GfK Chart-Track, Turtle Beach had over 57% percent GBP share of the UK gaming headset market in the fourth quarter of 2013, driven in part by strong sales of PS4 compatible headsets, including the wireless surround sound PX4 and P4C chat communicator.
“Consumers associate the Turtle Beach brand with high-quality, feature-rich gaming headsets,” said Juergen Stark, Chief Executive Officer of Parametric Sound Corp. “With our market share gains at the end of 2013 and our strong line-up of products for 2014, I am confident our headset business is well-positioned for growth as the console transition accelerates.”
