Titanfall Edition Atlas Headset Announced By Turtle Beach

While the upcoming shooter title from EA, Titanfall, is around the corner, it is bound for manufacturers to release editions for the most anticipated games. This si the case for Turtle Beach, where the manufacturer will introduce its Titalfall edition of Atlas headset.

The Titanfall Edition Altis headset is said t be a high-end gaming headset, which the company will release at the same time as the Titalfall game, though the date will coincide with the release date from North America, therefore potential buyers will still have to wait for the game to launch in their country to be able to use it for the actual game itself (you might plan on listening to some music with it to pass the time though).

The Atlas headset style and design is made to reflect the elements in the Titanfall game, having a futuristic design and a combination of muted grey with bright blue and a drop of red to create a more “I want to buy this!” attitude for dedicated gamers.

Turtle Beach states that the headset is made to be compatible with all platforms on which EA’s title will be launched on, namely the Xbox One, Xbox 360, PC, as well as mobile platforms. It is said to offer you a stereo audio from its twin, full-range 50 mm speakers, having a built-in amplifier to help you get the kick out of it. Though, it is highly recommended to use it at an acceptable volume so as not to damage your hearing over time.

The headset will also feature game and chat volume controls for a better integration with the dedicated game for which it is initially made, coming also with comfortable earcups which are designed to give the user a comfortable wear for hours of continuous gameplay. Other features consist of a detachable microphone and a built-in bass boost.

Turtle Beach’s Titalfall Atlas headset is stated to be released on March 11th, that is the Titanfall game’s release date as well if you did not know that until now, and will be seen on retailers’ shelves at a price tag of £139,99.

Android Based Sony Walkman ZX1 & F880 Detailed

Sony announces two more additions to the touch-enabled Walkman series after the Sony Walkman F886, announced at IFA 2013, Walkman ZX1 and the value oriented Walkman F880.

The former comes with an 128 GB in-built flash storage while the latter comes in three flavors: the 16 GB flavor if you are on a tight budget, or the 32 GB and the 64 GB flavors if you have got some cash to spare.

Both ZX1 and F880 pack a 4.0 inch LCD display(854×480 pixels – FWVGA), run on Android 4.1 Jelly Bean and bring a lot of connectivity features like NFC, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and also access to Google’s Play Store. The F880 runs on a dual core 1.0 GHz OMAP4 Cortex-A9 chip, while there is no mention of the ZX1′s processor. However what we do know are the colors. While the ZX1 comes only in black, the F880 will be slightly colorful, being available in black, white, pink and blue.

The Walkmans are essentially competitors of Apple’s iPod touch, but Sony says that they’re also built for high-quality audio. They can both play back lossless audio files like FLAC, which greatly improves the quality compared to the regular MP3 formats. Sony also points out an “advanced” built-in digital amplifier, the’ “S-Master HX” digital amp which can reduce distortion and noise, and that it can even “faithfully” remaster files that include compression, creating an ultimate result that sounds just as the artist intended.

The release date is set for the 19th of October and the starting price for the new Walkman handsets will start at ¥27,000( £170 / $276 ) for the basic model.
