“This new partnership with FaZe, in addition to OpTic, is an amazing testament to how great a headset the Elite Pro is,” said Juergen Stark, CEO, Turtle Beach Corporation. “The Elite Pro is the culmination of our position as true innovators in the market, and has allowed us to deliver a powerful one-two punch by teaming-up with not one, but two of the biggest and best eSports teams with FaZe and OpTic. The Elite Pro launches this weekend on June 12th, so the timing of FaZe and OpTic’s participation at MLG Anaheim aligns perfectly, and we wish both teams the best of luck.”
FaZe Clan CEO Thomas “Temperrr” Oliveira added, “We’ve been exploring options for a gaming audio partner for a while now, and Turtle Beach’s Elite Pro simply blew us away when they brought it out to show both our Call of Duty and Counter Strike: Global Offensive teams. The headset itself sounds great and is super comfortable to wear, and when combined with the Elite Pro T.A.C. and Tournament Noise-Cancelling Microphone it’s the best professional gaming audio setup around, and one that every top gamer should have.”
Turtle Beach’s all-new Elite Pro line defines the future of eSports gaming audio equipment. The Elite Pro Headset‘s journey began in 2013. Seeing the consistent growth and popularity of eSports, Turtle Beach launched a comprehensive scientific research program to deeply examine the needs of professional and hardcore gamers as it pertained to game audio, communicating with teammates, and overall comfort. The result is the all-new Elite Pro Tournament Gaming Headset – a ground-up redesign of the competitive gaming headset that brings to market multiple first-and-only innovations in the core mechanics of headset design, weight and fit. Not only does the Elite Pro Headset provide Turtle Beach’s best-in-class game audio and chat performance, but also delivers groundbreaking comfort-driven technologies, including the ComforTec™ Fit System with multiple adjustment points for a truly personalized headset fit and feel, Aerofit™ Ear Cushions that stay cool in the heat of battle, and Turtle Beach’s all-new patented ProSpecs™ Glasses Relief System that finally makes wearing a gaming headset comfortable for players who wear glasses.
