Ear Force M5, X42, XP500 by Turtle Beach – CES 2012
I remember my first Turtle Beach sound card. That was over 10 years ago. Since then, Turtle Beach has grown and turned it’s focus to headphones for gaming. Some pretty impressive stuff with customized surround sound, too.
Turtle Beach introduced a new line of mobile headphones. Gaming on the Go, is what Ike said. Sleeker, trendier and portable. The M3, for example can fold up for travel.
The Turtle Beach M5 headphones have 50 mm drivers. Complete with new logos and inline microphones, so you can take calls on your mobile device.
The X-32 (Stereo Wireless) and X42 for XBox . They are dual wireless headsets. They work on 2.4 GHz and 5 Ghz range.
Finally, we learned about the XP300, XP400, and XP500. XP300 is stereo wireless, but the XP400 is 5.1 surround. You can choose between 6 angles of surround sound. The XP500 is Bluetooth, voice prompted, and can be paired to phones. It can also be customizable to your ear. That way, if you play first-shooter games, you can catch the footsteps of someone creeping up on you.
M3 headphones start at $39.95. M5 $49.95. XP300 – XP500 range from $169.95 to $269.95.
