Astralis and Turtle Beach have signed a partnership that'll see the star Counter-Strike:Global Offensive team use Turtle Beach's Elite Pro headset as their official gaming headset.
In addition, the current world champions will be involved in the future development of a new line of PC gaming headsets as part of Turtle Beach's ongoing commitment to esports.
Astralis will be wearing the headsets during their matches at the ECS finals this week, providing valuable visibility for the product ahead of its launch in July.
“I can’t think of a better way to strengthen our presence in the PC gaming market and to fortify the foundation for sustained success, than by joining forces with one of the most preeminent esports organizations in the world and arming them with what’s arguably the best gaming headset available,” said Juergen Stark, Turtle Beach's CEO.
"With so many console gamers, pro players and teams already enjoying the Elite Pro since its debut last year, we knew we needed to extend this offering to gamers playing on PC too. This new partnership with Astralis continues to show that the best gamers in the world choose to work with Turtle Beach, and not only are we excited to jointly debut our new Elite Pro – PC Edition together, but we’re looking forward to working with them to bring even more groundbreaking gaming headsets to the PC space in the future.”
