Turtle Beach announces MW3-inspired headsets

Turtle Beach, who has been taking the gaming world by storm with their uber slick gaming headsets, announced a partnership with Activision to develop a new line of limited edition Call of Duty®: Modern Warfare® 3 Ear Force headsets. Turtle Beach worked with audio teams from Infinity Ward and Sledgehammer Games a COD:MW3 flavored experience.

The headsets will also work with non-COD:MW3 games, but what fun is that?! As with the PX5s, you can use them with 360s, PS3s and PCs.

The prices range from $99 to $299 for a headset that features 7.1 surround sound, programmable settings and wireless - and yes, Bluetooth.

Here are a few features noted in Turtle Beach's press release:

• Ear Force DELTA (EFD) – Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3-Optimized Programmable Wireless Dolby 7.1 Surround Sound Headset with Bluetooth Chat. The top-of-the-line EFD headset comes packaged in a specially-themed carrying case and is preloaded with unique custom Modern Warfare3 presets and voice prompts. MSRP: $299.95.

• Ear Force BRAVO (EFB)– Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 Optimized Programmable Wireless Universal Gaming Headset. Featuring the same custom Modern Warfare 3 presets as the EFD, the EFB provides players with the same optimized experience in a universal headset. MSRP $149.95.

• Ear Force CHARLIE (EFC)– Call of Duty:Modern Warfare3 Optimized Multi-Speaker Surround Sound PC Gaming Headset. With eight amplified, acoustically-angled speakers delivering discrete surround sound, this tournament-grade, Modern Warfare 3 optimized wired headset is the perfect choice for competitive PC gamers. MSRP $129.95.

• Ear Force FOXTROT (EFF) – Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 Optimized Universal Gaming Headset. For Modern Warfare 3 players seeking effortless cross-platform performance, the EFF provides gamers with high-fidelity amplified audio along with several key features to set it apart. MSRP $99.95.
