Turtle Beach unveils new Atlas range of PC headsets


Turtle Beach has announced a whole new range of PC gaming headsets, entitled Atlas.

The company emphasises that the Atlas range has been designed in collaboration with leading e-sports teams, including Astralis, OpTic Gaming and the Houston Outlaws. Initially, there will be three models in the Atlas range: the £39.99 Atlas One, the £69.99 Atlas Three and the £89.99 Elite Atlas. 

Turtle Beach CEO Juergen Stark said: “This expansion is a great move for us because, in addition to our already strong performance in console gaming headsets, we’ll now have the ability to attract both dedicated and cross-platform PC gamers through our new Atlas line-up.” Nicolai “dev1ce” Reedtz of Astralis added: “As a player and as a team, it’s a privilege to have worked with Turtle Beach in the making of the Elite Atlas and the rest of their new Atlas line. We tested and provided a lot of feedback and suggestions during the development process in an effort to ensure the Elite Atlas is the best possible headset for PC e-sports pros, but also for any PC gamers.”

All three Atlas headsets feature Turtle Beach’s ProSpecs glasses-friendly ear-cushion design and make use of Microsoft’s Windows Sonic for Headphones 2 surround-sound — playing through 40mm speakers in the Atlas One and 50mm speakers in the Atlas Three. Turtle Beach says the Elite Atlas: “Sets a new benchmark for e-sports audio on PC.” Among its specification highlights are a metal headband, “Pro-tuned 50mm Nanoclear speakers,” memory-foam ear-cushions, a removable TruSpeak microphone and 3.5mm and PC-splitter cables. 

Turtle Beach’s Atlas headsets are now available to pre-order; the company says  that they should start shipping in September 2018. To find out more, head to Turtle Beach’s website.
