“We worked with some of the best pro gamers in the world to make sure our new Atlas line delivers PC gamers the superior audio performance and comfort Turtle Beach is known for,” said Juergen Stark, CEO, Turtle Beach. “Turtle Beach’s success is rooted in our ability to innovate and offer a broad portfolio of products designed for all types of gamers, from professional competitive esports athletes to those just getting into gaming, and that’s what we’re now bringing to the PC market with our Atlas headsets. We knew we needed more than just a single offering, so we built the Atlas lineup to cater to the various types of PC gamers out there – whether they’re shopping based on specific features or budget.”
“The Elite Atlas is built for pro players, aspiring pros, and hardcore gamers, and its $99 MSRP keeps it well within reach for serious PC gamers looking for the best headset to help them take on the competition. TheAtlas Three offers PC gamers an option with amplified audio and is based on our best-selling Stealth 600 headset design. And the Atlas One is a great everyday PC gaming headset that delivers premium sound, comfort, and multiplatform compatibility at a great price.”
It isn’t hyperbole when Juergen Stark says they worked with some of the best esports players in the world to craft these PC headsets. Esports players like Optic Gaming‘s CouRage and Ptero (Pictured), Overwatch League‘s Houston Outlaws, and the recent FACEIT London 2018 CS:GO Champions Astralis spent time in the Turtle Beach labs to give their take on what the PC Master Race needs out of a headset.
“In Counter-Strike, sound and communication are essential. There is no room for mistakes, and being able to recognize the sound of footsteps, weapon type, and other audio details just a millisecond before your opponent makes a huge difference,” said Peter ‘dupreeh’ Rasmussen. “If you want to be the best, you want your equipment to be second to none – the difference between a good and a great headset can be the difference between winning and losing a grand final. So, it’s been very rewarding working with the team at Turtle Beach to help them ensure the Atlas headsets provide top-tier audio performance for all PC gamers.”
