For example, the game surround sound mode offers presets that have been acoustically tuned for first person shooter, racing, and sports games. Presets can be customized and managed using a new mobile app. Use Bluetooth to connect a mobile device for phone calls, music and more. Dual invisible microphones provide high-quality chat audio and a clean, boom-free look. Rocker plate controls makes using features easy and keeps the Elite 800 looking sharp.

The TAC also outputs audio for professional-quality live streaming or recording of full gameplay and chat audio. TAC units can be daisy-chained for tournament or LAN gaming. An auxiliary input allows you to connect a mobile device and mix in voice calls or music. The Elite Tournament Audio Controller will be available in the Fall of 2014 and integrated into future tournament gaming headset systems.

  • After seeing those I think I love Turtle Beach more than Tritton again. I really want the Ear Force Elite 800.

      Looks hardly mean anything for headsets, you need to hear how they sound when you are playing before you fall in love again. Be careful now.

    Paid advertising?

    I used to own $200 Turtlebeaches, they kept breaking and I had to keep sending it back. Sound quality was pretty good and so was the mic, but it just had too many problems. Now I have Astro A50s and they haven’t shat out on me so far. These look promising, but based on my personal experiences, I’m not getting them (specifically the Ear Force Elite 800) unless they have some pretty amazing reviews.

    • MichiganerE

      I have Turtle Beach Ear Force X22s; I’ve owned them for over a year. Maybe you should try them out?

      • Siftblade of Rivia

        I’ll keep that in mind if I’m ever looking for a new headset. I’ve used a couple of other Turtlebeaches before and they never really lasted long for me, even though they worked fine for some of my friends. Maybe I just have bad luck with them, lol.

        • MichiganerE

          I had a pair of Turtle Beaches before and they broke. Well, maybe it was because my friend was over and decided to act like a dick and break them, but that was over a year ago.

      • Super_Deluxe

        Same I have the x12s with the 7.1 DSS surround adapter for almost 2 years. I will be upgrading soon though once I decide to buy a PS4 this fall.

        • MichiganerE

          Nice.

    • Daniel M

      Maybe you should look after your headset a little be more. I’ve got the Turtle beach Tangos (black ops 2 headset) had it for 2~ years and it works completely fine.

      PS I’m very clumsy with it too so you can’t use that as an excuse.

      • Siftblade of Rivia

        I do look after my headsets. What happened for one of them was that I took it on a trip with me (In the box, to avoid damage) and it worked fine when I used it on the trip. When I came back, it wouldn’t reconnect to my PS3. I sent it back and they gave me a new one, a month or two later the mic part stopped working. Stuff like that. I think I just have really bad luck with Turtlebeaches. However, my Astros have been working excellent so far and I’ve had them for about 6 months.

  • Kobrah

    I have been waiting so long for this new range of headphones for my PS4. My last set of P11’s were great. Can’t wait!

  • Roxas3510

    Waiting for Astro to announce their headset(s).

    • Crazybullet919

  • Kill Denied

    How is this relevant to Call of Duty

    • Crazybullet919

      Most people who play use a headset…

      • Kill Denied

        Still

  • Ryumoau

    I loved the PX1 headset but these new ones are way too pricy for me.

  • Guest

    Steelseries V2 Same as astros but easily half the price

  • thebulky1cometh

    $300 for a headset…seriously?

    • Actually yes, If you want a good headset. I like astro though.

  • exeterman2

    All you need is an old ps3 compatible headset and the £5 chat cable.

  • So the Ear Force Elite 800 is an even better pair of Astro A50’s. But the A50’s work for all systems. I have A40’s.

  • jasio
