Turtle Beach has today revealed their new gaming headset range uniquely tailored with special audio presets from the MW3 developers themselves. The selection of headsets is comically named ‘Ear Force’ and they are available for pre-order right now. Sledgehammer and Infinity Ward lent their audio magicians to Turtle Beach in order to optimise the quality of the integration it will have with MW3.
The range will be released alongside the game this November. Some of you may recall the various novelty gadgets and gimmicks that were on offer when Black Ops launched, they do this every year and I’m more than curious to find out how many units actually get sold, and what sort of people are buying them. £250 is a lot of cash for the average UK gamer, it could buy you a new console and probably MW3 with it.
Anyway for those who are potentially interested, or just idly wondering what rich people waste their cash on, here are the details:
- Ear Force DELTA (EFD) – Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3-Optimised 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 pre-loaded with unique custom Modern Warfare 3 presets and voice prompts. Ear Force Delta is the ultimate Xbox 360 and PS3 weapon for the most avid Modern Warfare 3 players. MSRP: £249.99

MSRP £169.99.

Surely I’m not the only one thinking you’d be better off buying a surround sound set?
