After partnering with OpTic Gaming last month Turtle Beach has now partnered with FaZe Clan.
The American eSports organisation’s players will now use the new Turtle Beach Elite Pro headset and the Elite Pro Tactical Audio Controller at tournaments and when playing at home. The FaZe Call of Duty team will be competing at MLG Anaheim this weekend, along with OpTic Gaming, and attendees will be able to meet the teams and try out the new Elite Pro headset at the Turtle Beach booth.
“This new partnership with FaZe, in addition to OpTic, is an amazing testament to how great a headset the Elite Pro is,” said Juergen Stark, CEO, Turtle Beach Corporation. “The Elite Pro is the culmination of our position as true innovators in the market, and has allowed us to deliver a powerful one-two punch by teaming-up with not one, but two of the biggest and best eSports teams with FaZe and OpTic. The Elite Pro launches this weekend on June 12th, so the timing of FaZe and OpTic’s participation at MLG Anaheim aligns perfectly, and we wish both teams the best of luck.”
“We’ve been exploring options for a gaming audio partner for a while now, and Turtle Beach’s Elite Pro simply blew us away when they brought it out to show both our Call of Duty and Counter Strike: Global Offensive teams,” said FaZe Clan CEO Thomas “Temperrr” Oliveira. “The headset itself sounds great and is super comfortable to wear, and when combined with the Elite Pro T.A.C. and Tournament Noise-Cancelling Microphone it’s the best professional gaming audio setup around, and one that every top gamer should have.”
