The peripheral manufacturer Roccat, now part of Turtle Beach, has launched a new range of gaming headsets under the name Elo. Gamers can now buy the new headphones from participating retailers. The prices vary, depending on the model, between around 50 and around 100 euros. The top model is the Elo 7.1 Air Wireless Surround Sound RGB headset, which combines all of the features mentioned in the name. 

According to the manufacturer Roccat, the Elo headsets are intended to give PC gamers “the perfect mix of award-winning German
Design and innovation with Turtle Beach's unmatched audio expertise and exclusive technologies ”. Roccat has now launched three different models, each in its own price range.

Gaming headset: prefer stereo or surround?

There are three different Elo headsets to choose from for gaming fans: the Elo X Stereo for around 50 euros, the Elo 7.1 USB surround sound headset for around 70 euros and the wireless Elo 7.1 Air surround sound headset with one RRP of 99.99 euros. The latter headset is the high-priced model in the new gaming headset series.

All three models combine basic features, including the memory foam padding with Turtle Beach ProSpecs technology especially for people who wear glasses. There are also metal headband with self-adjusting headband, powerful 50 mm drivers and the highly sensitive Turtle Beach TruSpeak microphone. The Elo 7.1 USB and Elo 7.1 Air also have 7.1-channel surround sound, variable mic monitoring and Roccat's Aimo lighting. The Elo 7.1 Air also has Turtle Beach's Superhuman Hearing Sound setting, which, according to the manufacturer, should provide a “clear advantage in the game”.

It shouldn't have been with the novelties from Roccat. “We have announced many exciting Roccat additions and are pleased that the Elos are the first new products to hit stores. And we have a lot more ahead of us, including pro versions of our award-winning Vulcan keyboards and newly introduced burst mice with our Titan Optical Switch technology, which is faster than almost anything else on the market, ”said René Korte of the executive suite.

Roccat Elo: three models, three price ranges

The Elo X Stereo is aimed at stereo enthusiasts and multi-platform gamers. According to Roccat, the cheapest of the three models offers “outstanding sound, produced by precisely set 50 mm drivers”. His
Extended cross-platform compatibility via 3,5 mm jack supplements convenience functions such as memory foam padding and a self-adjusting headband with a light metal bracket. The Elo X Stereo comes with a PC audio splitter. The manufacturer's recommended retail price is 49.99 euros.

According to the manufacturer, the Elo 7.1 USB RGB offers “immersive 7.1-channel surround sound with precisely matched 50 mm drivers”. The headset also features Turtle Beach audio innovations such as the highly sensitive, powerful TruSpeak microphone for crystal-clear communication, variable mic monitoring to prevent screaming and glasses-friendly ProSpecs ear pads.

The medium-priced version also offers comfort features, such as memory foam padding and the light metal headband with a self-regulating headband. There is also the AIMO lighting system for lively color adjustments. The Elo 7.1 USB RGB will be available at an RRP of 69,99 euros.

In the luxury class, gamers can do without cables. The Elo 7.1 Air is the top model in the series. Here too, according to Roccat, there is again “immersive 7.1-channel surround sound with powerful 50
mm drivers ”, as well as Turtle Beach's Superhuman Hearing sound setting, an option that should benefit fans directly in the game: sounds that would otherwise hardly be perceived should be amplified and thus offer an advantage in the game.
