What we do
When it comes to gaming audio, nothing gives you a competitive advantage like a Turtle Beach headset! 12 years ago we created the very first console gaming headset, the X51, and since then we’ve led the industry by creating innovative, best-in-class products that deliver amazing, pro-level game and chat audio experiences.
Whether you’re a noob, casual gamer or an eSports pro, Turtle Beach has the right headset for you. From PlayStation® and Xbox consoles to PC, Macs and mobile devices, victory will be yours with our game-changing audio, unparalleled comfort and enviable design.
What we believe
We believe audio is half the experience when you’re gaming, and the better you hear, the better you’ll play! Our specialized headsets are designed to help you hone your skills, master your games and conquer every challenge that comes your way, because if you can hear everything, you can defeat everyone!
A proven innovator
You don’t conquer a game on your first play-through, and you don’t become the world’s largest gaming headset brand overnight. Turtle Beach’s journey began in 1975 as a small company called Voytera that made PC sound cards and midi synthesizers, and throughout our 40-plus years as audio experts, Turtle Beach has evolved into today’s premiere gaming headset brand.
As the industry has grown, so have we; developing more advanced headsets and audio accessories for all types of gamers, including professional eSports athletes and streamers on Twitch and YouTube. In fact, our history is rich with industry firsts.
