Turtle Beach’s New Atlas Line is Built for PC Gamers, Featuring Three Models, including the Pro-Level Elite Atlas, the Powerful Amplified Atlas Three, and the Versatile Atlas One
The Nordics – Oct. 1, 2018 – Leading gaming headset and audio accessory brand Turtle Beach (NASDAQ: HEAR) officially enters the PC gaming headset market with today’s announcement that the company’s all-new Atlas line of headsets built for PC is now available at participating retailers worldwide. Designed in collaboration with leading esports teams, including Astralis, OpTic Gaming, and the Houston Outlaws, Turtle Beach’s Atlas line features three different models, including the Elite Atlas Pro Performance PC Gaming Headset, the powerful Atlas Three Amplified PC Gaming Headset, and the versatile Atlas One PC Gaming Headset. Each Atlas headset offers PC gamers an innovative set of features and functionality. Read below for full details of each Atlas PC gaming headset.
“We worked with some of the best pro gamers in the world to make sure our new Atlas line delivers PC gamers the superior audio performance and comfort Turtle Beach is known for,” said Juergen Stark, CEO, Turtle Beach. “Turtle Beach’s success is rooted in our ability to innovate and offer a broad portfolio of products designed for all types of gamers, from professional competitive esports athletes to those just getting into gaming, and that’s what we’re now bringing to the PC market with our Atlas headsets. We knew we needed more than just a single offering, so we built the Atlas lineup to cater to the various types of PC gamers out there – whether they’re shopping based on specific features or budget.”
Stark continued, “The Elite Atlas is built for pro players, aspiring pros, and hardcore gamers. The Atlas Three offers PC gamers an option with amplified audio and is based on our best-selling Stealth 600 headset design. And the Atlas One is a great everyday PC gaming headset that delivers premium sound, comfort, and multiplatform compatibility at a great price.”
When designing the new Atlas line, Turtle Beach worked closely with top esports teams to fully understand the needs of elite esports athletes, and to ensure the Atlas headsets deliver on PC gamers’ expectations. After all, esports teams know a thing or two about what it takes to perform at the highest levels of play, whether practicing or competing on the tournament stage. In fact, Astralis just won the FACEIT London 2018 CS:GO Major Championship that took place on Sept. 23, 2018, with a follow-up performance as the winner of the CS:GO Blast Pro Series Istanbul tournament which took place this past weekend.
“In Counter-Strike, sound and communication are essential. There is no room for mistakes, and being able to recognize the sound of footsteps, weapon type, and other audio details just a millisecond before your opponent makes a huge difference,” said Peter ‘dupreeh’ Rasmussen. “If you want to be the best, you want your equipment to be second to none – the difference between a good and a great headset can be the difference between winning and losing a grand final. So, it’s been very rewarding working with the team at Turtle Beach to help them ensure the Atlas headsets provide top-tier audio performance for all PC gamers.”
