We play to conquer.
Turtle Beach is dedicated to being a leader in eSports because we are dedicated to helping all gamers, even the pros, dominate their competition. That’s why we made the Elite Pro®, the best tournament gaming headset available. And that’s why we’ve partnered with two of the leading eSports teams — OpTic Gaming and FaZe Clan, who both exclusively use the Elite Pro to gain a competitive advantage.
The Turtle Beach® Elite Pro is the first gaming headset reimagined from the ground-up for eSports athletes. Turtle Beach asked top tournament gamers about features and details they desire most. The result is a new standard in gaming audio. With unparalleled comfort and sound, the Elite Pro turns game audio into a winning advantage.
