Turtle Beach Unveils New Lineup at CES

January 4, 2011, By Christian Davis

The Consumer Electronic Show(CES) is only days away and all the announcements and rumors are surfacing. CES is more than just gaming but they do offer some great info on the gaming industry and gaming products. One of which are Turtle Beach Headsets.

Turtle Beach is known for very reliable and high quality headsets and they are revealing three models at this years CES: PX5, P11, and XC1.

Ear Force PX5 Programmable Wireless Surround Sound Headset

The PX5 is the most technologically-advanced headset ever designed for PS3 and XBOX 360 gaming, incorporating a programmable digital signal processor to allow independent customization of the chat, game and microphone signals.  Custom settings stored in the headset as presets can be selected during specific parts of the game to emphasize sounds like footsteps or reloads that might otherwise be difficult to hear. It can even be programmed to disguise a gamer’s voice or to enhance the voices of online players to be heard when the game gets louder. These personalized presets will be possible with software available from the Turtle Beach web site that allows the user to adjust the settings on a PC and transfer them via a USB connection to the headset.

The PX5 is also the first headset to incorporate dual radios—one for immersive, Dolby Digital surround sound game audio and a second for chat on the PlayStation Network via Bluetooth. The Bluetooth feature also supports stereo audio streaming for listening to music while playing a game and can accept a phone call while wearing the headset.

MSRP: $249.95
