|TURTLE BEACH WINS “BEST PERIPHERALS AND ACCESSORIES BRAND” HONORS SECOND YEAR IN A ROW AT UK VIDEO GAME INDUSTRY’S MCV AWARDS|
San Diego, CA – April 21, 2015 – Turtle Beach Corporation (NASDAQ: HEAR), the leading-edge audio technology company and #1 in gaming audio, was recognized for the second year in a row as the industry’s “Best Peripherals and Accessories Brand” during last week’s MCV Awards 2015 show, held at the Lancaster’s Gate in London, UK. In addition to receiving the award in 2015 and 2014, Turtle Beach previously received the same award in 2012, making it a third time in four years the company has been recognized by the industry as the best brand in the peripherals/accessories space. MCV is a leading gaming news and community outlet for professionals working within the UK and international video games market.
“We’re honored to win this prestigious award from MCV, particularly back-to-back!” said Juergen Stark, CEO, Turtle Beach Corporation. “It’s a great affirmation of the innovative and high-quality products we’ve launched over the past year, and the strength of the Turtle Beach brand among serious gamers.”
Added Chris Dring, Editor at MCV, “Turtle Beach has had a very impressive 12 months. They were named the peripherals firm with the best quality in our Annual Retail Survey in December, and that has been followed up by the judges voting them the UK’s top accessories brand for the second year running at this year’s MCV Awards. To win two years in a row is no small feat, and it goes to show the strength of the brand within the games industry."
Turtle Beach just entered the PC gaming accessories market this month, with its new line of professional grade gaming keyboards, mice and mousepads designed for competitive gamers. The Company is also on the verge of releasing its fully wireless, premium gaming headset for Xbox One, the Elite 800X, which is available for pre-order right now and will launch at retail on May 22nd. Turtle Beach’s Elite 800X is fully wireless for game audio and chat audio. That means there’s no cable going from the Elite 800X headset to the game controller, and no cable going from the game controller to the console. Players get crystal clear game audio and chat audio via 100% wireless connectivity, using the latest, cutting-edge technology. Turtle Beach is also set to unveil its new lineup of headsets at E3 2015 this June.
