Turtle Beach coming out with Modern Warfare 3 headsets Posted by Gieson Cacho on July 19th, 2011 at 6:01 am | Categorized as Video Games | Tagged as Call of Duty, headsets, Modern Warfare 3, Turtle Beach *Update We got some wrong info and those Ear Force Bravo headphones are actually $179.95. Turtle Beach is making some major headway into the video games headphones market, and their latest move is a coup. The Elmsford, N.Y.-based company has struck a deal with Activision to create a new line of Ear Force headsets for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3. As you can see, they look good, reminiscent of the PX models, but it’s the sounds they emit that count. According to Turtle Beach, they’ll be coming out with four different headsets using military call letters — Ear Force Delta, Ear Force Bravo, Ear Force Charlie and Ear Force Foxtrot. All will be different but they’ll come with audio presets specifically designed for the game and tuned by the audio teams from Infinity Ward and Sledgehammer Games. The top of the line will be Ear Force Delta, which is the 3-optimized programmable wireless Dolby 7.1 Surround Sound headset with Bluetooth Chat. It sounds a lot like the PX5’s except this comes with a special carrying case and is preloaded with the MW3 presets and voice prompts. It sells for a whopping $299.95. Ear Force Bravo is also wireless but doesn’t have the Bluetooth Chat feature. Like Ear Force Delta, it works for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC. It sells for $179.95. It’s also pictured at the top of this post. Ear Force Charlie is a multispeaker surround sound PC gaming headset. Turtle Beach is calling it “tournament grade.” It comes with eight amplified, acoustically angled speakers. The headset also appears to be wired. It’s selling for $129.95. Lastly, Ear Force Foxtrot is a wired headset that works across Xbox 360 and PS3. According to the press release, it provides gamers with high-fidelity amplified audio. It’s selling for $99.95. If these headsets are just as good as the aforementioned PX5’s, then it could be worth your while, depending on how much your willing to spend. But if you’re serious about your Call of Duty gaming, these wouldn’t be a bad investment. I figure the best value would be Ear Force Bravo. It offers the biggest bang for the buck. Trust me, never underestimate the joy of wireless headsets. Turtle Beach’s Modern Warfare 3 headsets are scheduled for release in October. For details, check out their site here
