Turtle Beach to Release Limited Edition Call of Duty MW3 Co-branded Gaming Headsets

Turtle Beach, pioneers and market-leaders of the gaming headset category, today announced a partnership with Activision to develop a new line of exclusively licensed, limited edition Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 Ear Force headsets, custom-optimized to deliver enhanced experiences for the year's most anticipated entertainment launch. Among many planned features, these new premium headsets will be distinguished by unique sets of audio presets designed specifically by the audio teams at developers Infinity Ward and Sledgehammer Games in order to provide the ultimate immersion into the cinematic world of Modern Warfare 3.

The headsets will be available with compatibility across Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC; with multiple feature sets, special packages with bonus content, and price points to ensure that no player is left behind.

  • Ear Force DELTA (EFD) – Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3-Optimized Programmable Wireless Dolby 7.1 Surround Sound Headset with Bluetooth Chat. The top-of-the-line EFD headset comes packaged in a specially-themed carrying case and is pre-loaded with unique custom Modern Warfare 3 presets and voice prompts. Ear Force Delta is the ultimate Xbox 360 and PS3 weapon for the most avid Modern Warfare 3 players. MSRP: $299.95.
  • Ear Force BRAVO (EFB) – Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 Optimized Programmable Wireless Universal Gaming Headset. Featuring the same custom Modern Warfare 3 presets as the EFD, the EFB provides players with the same optimized experience in a universal headset that's the perfect Call of Duty companion on Xbox 360, PS3 and PC. MSRP $149.95.
  • Ear Force CHARLIE (EFC) – Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 Optimized Multi-Speaker Surround Sound PC Gaming Headset. With eight amplified, acoustically-angled speakers delivering discrete surround sound, this tournament-grade, Modern Warfare 3 optimized wired headset is the perfect choice for competitive PC gamers. MSRP $129.95.
  • Ear Force FOXTROT (EFF) – Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 Optimized Universal Gaming Headset. For Modern Warfare 3 players seeking effortless cross-platform performance, the EFF provides gamers with high-fidelity amplified audio along with several key features to set it apart. MSRP $99.95.
Additional details about each headset, the many special Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 package features, bonus content, promotions and more will be announced later.

"Call of Duty continues to define action while also becoming a cultural phenomenon as well as the industry standard," noted Michael Arzt, Vice President of Marketing and Business Development for Turtle Beach. "As the long-time leader and innovator in the gaming audio category, Turtle Beach is excited to introduce a collection of purpose-built Modern Warfare 3 headsets with features and benefits that will far surpass gamers' expectations for licensed headsets."

Set to strike worldwide on November 8th, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 is the year's most anticipated release. Published by Activision and in development by Infinity Ward and Sledgehammer games, the title is the newest installment in the record-setting, blockbuster Call of Duty series, which has broken entertainment opening launch records two-years running.

Turtle Beach revolutionized game audio with the industry's first truly customizable headset, the PX5, earlier this year and is the only brand capable of this offering. Gamers interested in learning more about Turtle Beach's lineup of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 headsets should visit turtlebeach.com/MW3 to sign up for updates about special content, additional product details, pre and on-sale info and other special news and alerts.

More specific product details of the co-branded product line will emerge in the coming months and the full lineup of Turtle Beach's Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 gaming headsets will ship to major retailers beginning in October, 2011.

I often wonder about people that buy game-branded hardware. Apart from, perhaps, WoW, hardware nearly always outlasts a game's hype or popularity. Especially hardware like headphones or mice or keyboards.

You must be a serious fanboy to buy this sort of crap.

I think the flaw in your plan is that the target market that would buy CoD branded gear ... probably doesn't intersect with the target market that has a big need for condoms.

I remember in the 90s when Turtle Beach went bust. And now, with $299 for a headset, and marketing copy fail, they will go bust again. Probably before Xmas.

I don't get the naming. The most expensive is Delta, then Bravo, Charlie and finally Foxtrot.

Gimicky multi speaker 'surround' headphones never really sounded that good compared to one that has a large thumping drivers. If youd want 3d positioning, most of modern soundcards today do it accurately via software that would make those real headphones become 3d position capable
