Turtle Beach have just revealed their their latest range of headsets will be heading to the Xbox One on March 7th. The XO Series headsets – including the XO FOUR and XO SEVEN – were first announced in the summer of 2013, so they’ve been a long time coming and with the Xbox One only having two companies to-date that have announced headsets for the console, I’m sure gamers will be happy to hear there is finally some more competition on the market.
The Ear Force XO SEVEN (UK SRP £129.99) is a premium headset built on the foundation of the tournament-grade SEVEN Series, with premium finishes including a padded headband and noise isolating ear cups with memory foam cushions. It also features interchangeable speaker plates so users can customise the look of their headset. The XO SEVEN is compatible with mobile devices and comes with a detachable boom mic and a breakaway mobile cable with an in-line mic for phone calls and audio chat.
The Ear Force XO FOUR (UK SRP £89.99) has a 3.5mm cable for use with mobile devices and a detachable boom mic.
“Our partners, retailers and distributors are all reporting that there is significant demand for Xbox One compatible headsets,” said Juergen Stark, Chief Executive Officer at Turtle Beach. “We are happy to share that as of March 7 the best next-generation audio experience will be available to consumers.”
I’ve only reviewed a few Turtle Beach headsets in my time here at eTeknix and I’ve been impressed every single time, with the new consoles having only been on the market a couple of months it’s going to take a while for a great selection of after market peripherals to become available and these latest headsets from Turtle Beach are a great first step for the brand.
Thank you Turtle Beach for providing us with this information
