ROCCAT unleashes its latest Elo series with 7.1 channel surround sound and Turtle Beach technology
ROCCAT had recently been acquired by Turtle Beach; therefore, its new Elo headsets are informed by this larger company's technology. They include its patented Superhuman Hearing sound setting, which, as the OEM claims, may give the user an edge in gameplay. The also-patented ProSpecs are memory foam ear-cushions that adjust to glasses should the user want to keep wearing them, while the TruSpeak mic is rated for "crystal clear" speech.
The headsets also are marked by their floating, "self-regulating" metal headband that connect rotating hinges. A leatherette, foam-padded band passes under this component, which may also help enhance wearer comfort over time.
The Elo X Stereo is the only 3.5mm-jack variant here, and also features a PC splitter. It, like the rest of its siblings, feature 50 millimeter (mm) neodymium drivers rated for "360-degree" 7.1 surround sound, although it is the only set without ROCCAT'S "intelligent" AIMO lighting system. The Elo 7.1 USB connects via a 2.0 type A port and has Variable Mic Monitoring, which allows the user to hear their own vocal volume so as to avoid unnecessary yelling.
The Elo 7.1 Air, on the other hand, is wireless. It features ROCCAT Stellar Wireless in addition to the various Turtle Beach tweaks and a battery rated for up to 24 hours of use. All 3 headets will go on general sale on October 4, 2020, or can be preordered now from the brand's website.
The Elo X Stereo costs US$49.99/€49.99, whereas the 7.1 USB is set at US$69.99/€69.99. The flagship cross-platform stereo gaming headset, USB gaming headset, wireless gaming headset, ROCCAT Elo 7.1, 7.1 Air, on the other hand, go for US$99.99/€99.99 at present.
