The Turtle Beach Elite Pro 2 + SuperAmp checks all of those boxes for us: crisp voice communication, detailed sounds, and our own customized EQ so we always have the audio advantage over our competition.”
The Elite Pro 2 headset’s audio performance is driven by Turtle Beach’s signature esports-tuned 50mm Nanoclear™ speakers paired with a removable high-sensitivity noise-cancelling mic with TruSpeak™ technology for crystal-clear communication with teammates. The Elite Pro 2 headset also sports a sleek and durable metal headband with a suspended pad, Turtle Beach’s patented ProSpecs™ glasses friendly design, and magnetic AeroFit™ cooling gel-infused memory foam ear cushions featuring athletic sport fabric and synthetic leather working together to block out external noise while keeping players cool and comfortable under fire. Additionally, easily swappable magnetic deco plates allow players to customize their Elite Pro 2, with an assortment of deco plate designs planned to be available for purchase this holiday season.
In parallel, the Elite SuperAmp offers an entirely new way for players to control their game audio. This one-dial gaming audio controller provides powerful amplified Windows Sonic for Headphones surround sound on Xbox One and compatible Windows 10 PCs, and DTS® Headphone:X® 7.1 channel surround sound on PS4™ and PC, and connects via Bluetooth® to the Turtle Beach Audio Hub mobile app on Android or iOS devices where gamers can adjust a variety of settings.
