SAN DIEGO, Sept. 14, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — ROCCAT, Turtle Beach’s (Nasdaq: HEAR) Hamburg, Germany-based PC gaming accessories brand, today unveiled the Elo series PC gaming headsets as the first all-new products in its lineup of precision PC gaming equipment. Founded in 2007 by former pro gamer and current Head of PC Products at Turtle Beach, Rene Korte, ROCCAT has become a pioneering PC gaming accessories maker with a portfolio packed with technologically advanced and visually stunning products. In 2019, ROCCAT was acquired by Turtle Beach and became the Company’s official PC gaming accessories brand. The Elo headsets are the first products that blend ROCCAT’s award-winning design and innovation with Turtle Beach’s unrivaled gaming audio expertise and exclusive audio technologies.
ROCCAT’s Elo series includes three different headsets for PC gamers to choose from, each designed with premium, comfort-focused features such as memory foam cushions and a self-adjusting floating metal headband – offering a unique, durable, and weightless fit. The Elo X Stereo is a light-weight stereo headset with a MSRP of $49.99. The Elo 7.1 USB ups the ante with premium 7.1 channel surround sound, ROCCAT’s AIMO intelligent lighting system, Variable Mic Monitoring and a USB connection for a MSRP of $69.99. The Elo 7.1 Air takes things even further with wireless connectivity, Turtle Beach’s patented Superhuman Hearing® sound setting for a competitive advantage, and a long-lasting 24-hour battery life for a MSRP of $99.99. All three Elo series headsets will be available at participating retailers worldwide on October 4, 2020. Pre-order now at ROCCAT.org.
“The Elo headsets show the result of what happens when you combine the best of ROCCAT and Turtle Beach, and this is just the first wave of our new precision-focused PC gaming accessories,” said Rene Korte, Head of PC Products at Turtle Beach. “The Elos look sleek and sound amazing, and we still have new additions to our award-winning Vulcan series keyboards on the way, along with new mice and more – all designed to deliver an amazing desktop ecosystem that makes ROCCAT the PC brand for all serious PC gamers.”
Turtle Beach CEO, Juergen Stark, added, “ROCCAT’s all-new Elo series PC gaming headsets, as well as the additional ROCCAT PC accessories that will be revealed in the future, reflect the very productive investments we’ve been putting toward growing Turtle Beach’s share in the $3 billion PC accessories market. ROCCAT’s new products offer PC gamers some of the highest performance and best-looking PC gear, all designed to provide a competitive advantage while making gaming more immersive and enjoyable, and is a core part of achieving our target of 10-20% annual topline growth over time.”
