Turtle Beach reveals plans to offer Xbox One headsets

The sales of game headsets have become a bigger part of the game accessory industry in the last few years, so it's not a shock to learn that one of the biggest names in that business, Turtle Beach, has revealed its own plans to release a series of audio products for Microsoft's upcoming Xbox One console.

Turtle Beach issued a press release saying that it is working with Microsoft to "leverage their proprietary technology and experience in gaming to bring advanced audio solutions to consumers." Unfortunately, Turtle Beach didn't go into any further detail on its Xbox One headset plans, saying that more information will be offered in the coming weeks.

Turtle Beach sold nine of the top 10 best-selling gaming headsets in 2012, and its Ear Force X12 accessory for the Xbox 360 is the best-selling third-party gaming headset in history.

When the Xbox One was revealed earlier this week, Microsoft showed off the console, a next-generation Kinect sensor and the new Xbox One controller. However, Microsoft offered no information about plans to sell its own headsets for the Xbox One, or indeed any other gaming accessories. Hopefully we will learn more about Microsoft's extra hardware plans for the console in early June as part of its E3 2013 announcements.

I always disliked using the headsets, personally, but whenever my stepchildren are playing the xbox in the family room with their friends online they damn well better have the headsets on. Drives me nuts when they are just yelling at each other over the speakers/kinect. No thanks. Headset options are a requirement as far as I'm concerned. I don't care if it comes bundled with one or not.

Maybe Microsoft will make higher end accessories or some perfect solutions so third-party gaming accessories are not needed. Most of Microsoft's Xbox 360 headsets had some large cons about them. I would like to see some better solutions this time around, But I won't get my hopes up. Hopefully we'll see something at E3 or the near future.
