The XO THREE and RECON 150’s Large 50mm Speakers and High-Sensitivity Mic Deliver Turtle Beach’s Unbeatable Game and Chat Sound Needed for Multiplayer Victory

Previously Announced RECON CHAT Gaming Headsets for Xbox One and PS4™ Now Available at Participating Retail Outlets Nationwide

London, UK – May 16, 2017 – Turtle Beach Corporation (NASDAQ: HEAR) today revealed two new models for its 2017 lineup of acclaimed gaming headsets for Xbox One and PlayStation®4. Similar in style to the company’s best-selling XO FOUR STEALTH, the new XO THREE officially licensed gaming headset for Xbox One and RECON 150 offer the same rugged and robust design as their predecessor, with large 50mm speakers and Turtle Beach’s renowned high-sensitivity mic to deliver the unbeatable game and chat audio needed to secure victory on the multiplayer battlefield. The XO THREE and RECON 150 are planned to launch at participating retailers this July for a SRP of £49.99, with the RECON 150 headset available only at Best Buy in the U.S., and at participating retailers in the UK and Australia, and in select territories across Europe.

Additionally, last month Turtle Beach redefined what gamers should expect from a chat headset with the all-new RECON CHAT for Xbox One and PS4™, which are now available globally at participating retail outlets.

“Part of our consistent success in this category is rooted in the breadth and quality of our lineup because we have a gaming headset for every type of player,” said Juergen Stark, CEO, Turtle Beach Corporation. “The XO THREE and RECON 150 headsets are great additions to our mid-range line of products, delivering amazing game audio, crystal clear chat and comfort at a great price.”

In addition to the large, high-quality 50mm speakers and Turtle Beach’s renowned high-sensitivity mic, the XO THREE and RECON 150 include convenient in-line controls that put Master Volume and Mic Mute right at your fingertips.
