“Creating the Elite Pro 2 + SuperAmp took the experience and dedication of our team, and deep collaboration with our esports partners to ensure we deliver the best Elite level gaming audio system,” said Juergen Stark, CEO, Turtle Beach. “It’s a testament to the relentless commitment we started nearly five years ago when we began work on the original Elite Pro, and we’re looking forward to launching its successor next month and once again resetting the bar for what gamers should expect in a competitive gaming headset.”
The Elite Pro 2 headset is built to win with professional-grade audio performance driven by Turtle Beach’s signature esports-tuned 50mm Nanoclear™ speakers paired with a removable high-sensitivity 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.

At the same time, the elegant 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 DTS® Headphone:X® 7.1 channel surround sound on PS4™, 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. When connected to the Audio Hub app on their mobile device, players will be able to instantly control features like Game and Chat Audio Mix, Variable Mic Monitoring, Dynamic Chat Boost™, Superhuman Hearing™ and other audio EQ presets, including Bass Boost. There are also controls for the SuperAmp’s LED color and lighting mode, and streaming-specific audio settings as well.
