Turtle Beach already sport one of the strongest ranges of console headsets on the market that cater to a wide range of budgets. Now it looks like one of the leading audio brands in the games industry is making their first move into the next-gen console race. This week, Turtle Beach announced the launch of the PX4, a wireless gaming headset that is designed to be fully compatible with the PlayStation 4 and it is being released just in time for the new console’s launch on the 29th of November. That means that the PX4 is the only wireless headset on the market that is compatible with the new console at launch!
In addition to the PX4, Turtle Beach announced that the wireless programmable surround sound XP510, PX51, and Call of Duty: Ghosts Phantom headsets are all equipped to offer next-gen audio on the PS4 (with a firmware update). The update will be available at turtlebeach.com when the PS4 launches.
The new PX4 wireless headset is fully equipped for next-gen gaming, boasting Dolby Surround Sound and interference free dual-band Wi-Fi to provide the ultimate “secret weapon” to gamers, and supreme audio quality to film and music fans. The PX4 has an MSRP of £149.99 GBP. Built in, dual-pairing Bluetooth offers the ability to take phone calls or stream music from a mobile phone or other Bluetooth devices without interrupting gameplay and EQ presets enable users to personalise their audio experience.
“At Turtle Beach we maximise the compatibility and flexibility of our headsets because there are so many potential gaming scenarios,” said Bob Picunko, Chief Marketing Officer at Turtle Beach. “We want people who invest in a Turtle Beach headset to be able to use it as broadly as possible.”
To maximise flexibility, Turtle Beach’s newest wireless headsets also provide a wired connection for mobile devices. The headsets can use that connection to get chat audio through the PS4’s DualShock controller and use an optical cord for game audio to provide a fully-integrated headset experience.
“We are delighted to announce that not only will three of our newest, premium wireless headsets provide an integrated chat and game audio experience with the PlayStation 4 console right out of the box*, but that we are launching a new next-gen headset – the PX4 – in time for launch,” said Juergen Stark, Chief Executive Officer at Turtle Beach.
Thank you Turtle Beach for providing us with this information.
