iSeries are purpose-built for use with Apple products
VALHALLA, N.Y., Nov. 5, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Turtle Beach, the leading audio brand in the games industry, today announces the iSeries line of high-end media headsets. The iSeries– including the wireless surround sound i60 and the wireless amplified stereo i30 – are the first headsets purpose-built for use with the Mac and iOS products. The iSeries headsets are packed with innovations that Turtle Beach first introduced to gaming headsets but are new for mobile users, including features that improve chat and voice call quality and provide an unmatched level of control over audio.
The i60 and i30 share the same unique design that blends style, quality, comfort and durability and features premium finishes, including a leather headband and leather-covered memory foam, noise-isolating ear cups.
Both headsets include a built-in remote that works with iPhone, iPad and the Mac. They also feature innovative dual boom-less microphones that deliver clear, high-quality audio during chat, voice calling and use with Siri.
The flagship i60 features a control unit for use with Mac desktops and laptops that provides fingertip audio and preset control. Turtle Beach anticipates that the i60 will be the first wireless headset for Mac to provide:
The i60 headset can be paired simultaneously with as many as eight Bluetooth devices and act as a stereo Bluetooth headset or as a wired stereo amplified headset using the provided 3.5mm standard cable. The i60 will be the only headset that can connect simultaneously to a Mac and an iOS device, so you can take calls through the headset while you are gaming or listening to music.
The i30 is a wireless stereo Bluetooth 4.0 headset packed with features, including voice morphing and active noise cancellation. The i30 headset can also be paired directly with Bluetooth devices and act as a stereo Bluetooth headset or as a wired stereo amplified headset using a standard 3.5mm cable.
Turtle Beach is the market leader in gaming headsets, producing both wired and wireless headsets for gaming consoles including the Xbox, PlayStation and Wii, handheld consoles such as the PS Vita and Nintendo DS, PCs, Macs and mobile devices. Turtle Beach has experienced steady growth over the past three years in response to strong, global consumer demand for the company's gaming headsets based on their quality, innovative features, and value. In 2012 the company's dollar share of the U.S. gaming headset market grew to 53.2 percent, and Turtle Beach ranked behind only Microsoft, Sony, and Activision in 2012 sales of all gaming accessories.
"The iSeries represents the next logical step in our evolution as we expand from gaming headsets to media headsets," said Turtle Beach CEO Juergen Stark. "We are excited to bring all the features and innovative technology that gamers associate with Turtle Beach to Apple enthusiasts."
The i60 will have a MSRP of $399.99 and the i30 will have a MSRP of $299.99.
