Turtle Beach, the leading audio brand in the video games industry, today announced that the Elite 800 wireless surround sound headset for the PlayStation 4 is now available in stores and online.

The Elite 800 is the first and only console gaming headset with active noise cancellation, and joins the recently launched Turtle Beach Stealth 500P as the only DTS Headphone:X 7.1 channel surround sound headsets for the PlayStation platform. Customers who purchase the Elite 800 are eligible to enroll in the Turtle Beach Elite Membership Program, which includes a range of benefits and member-only events.

“The Elite 800 is a completely new design that was engineered from the ground-up to be by far the most advanced wireless gaming headset on the market,” said Juergen Stark, Chief Executive Officer at Turtle Beach Corporation. “We are pleased to bring gaming enthusiasts a new standard in wireless gaming audio along with the benefits of our Elite membership program.”

Compatible with the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3, the Elite 800 utilises DTS Headphone:X 7.1 surround sound and active noise cancellation to create an incredible, immersive audio experience. Both are firsts for console gaming headsets.

A completely reimagined preset system allows DTS surround sound modes to be finely tuned for different types of games, movies and music using presets developed by Turtle Beach. Presets can be customised and managed using a new companion app. Dual invisible microphones provide high-quality chat audio and a clean, boom-free look.

Rocker plate controls make using features easy and keep the Elite 800 looking sharp. Customise the look of the Elite 800 with a wide range of snap-on speaker plates available at TurtleBeach.com. A low profile magnetic charging stand keeps the Elite 800 charged without cables and the rechargeable battery provides up to 10 hours of playing time. High-performance Wi-Fi ensures an interference-free wireless experience, and Bluetooth connects the Elite 800 to mobile devices for phone calls, music and more.

The purchase of any Elite gaming headset includes the opportunity to enroll in the Turtle Beach Elite Membership Program. Membership benefits include discounts, a two-year extended product warranty, a light-weight member hoodie, a membership card, early access to Turtle Beach news and product information, a trial Twitch Turbo membership, and a range of unique, member-only opportunities at gaming events. The Turtle Beach Elite Program is only available to participants who reside in markets where Turtle Beach Elite products are sold.  Additionally, specific program benefits vary by market and will also be subject to local restrictions.

“The Turtle Beach Elite Membership Program is a unique offering for tournament professionals and competitive gamers,” said Bob Picunko, Chief Marketing Officer at Turtle Beach Corporation. “We look forward to providing members with one-of-a-kind opportunities and special benefits.”
