The annual tech industry Mecca that is the Consumer Electronics Show is well underway now, and Turtle Beach is there to show off its upcoming product lineup for the front half of 2013. A press release runs through the highlights, starting with a pair of multipurpose cans for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 users.
The Q1-releasing Ear Force PX51 and XP510 are for Sony and Microsoft consoles, respectively, with built-in Bluetooth, virtual surround sound, dual band Wi-Fi (to cut down on interference), and a rechargeable battery that is good for an estimated 15 hours on a single charge. These are premium items, with a $269.99 price on the PS3 model and a $289.99 price on the Xbox 360 model (likely because of the need to pack in an additional Bluetooth dongle).
Turtle Beach is also launching its lineup of Ear Force SEVEN products, all of which are designed with portability and multiplayer gaming in mind. The SEVEN series is designed to allow for any headset to be used on any hardware platform with the help of an interchangeable cable kit. So while the XP SEVEN, Z SEVEN, and M SEVEN cater to console, PC, and mobile gaming, respectively, all three pairs of wired cans can be made compatible with other platforms.
The SEVEN line of headsets is yet another premium brand for Turtle Beach, with all models including a touch sensitive control unit that offers quick access to EQ presets and volume levels. All three SEVEN offerings are set to launch in Q1, with the prices set at $279.95 for the console option, $249.95 for the PC option, and $149.95 for the mobile option.
The final reveal is an updated take on the Ear Force PX21 cans, appropriately re-named to PX22. This budget-priced, MLG-licensed headset ($79.95) is pegged for a Q2 release, offering cross-platform support, bass/treble boosts, chat boost, a mobile device-compatible connector, and stereo sound.
