Our specialized headsets can help you hone your skills, master your games, and conquer every challenge that comes your way. Hear Everything. Defeat Everyone.™
A proven innovator
You don’t conquer a game on your first play-through, and you don’t become the world’s leading gaming headset brand overnight. Turtle Beach’s journey began back in 1975 as a small company called Octave Electronics which created music and audio-related products like analog music synthesizers, PC sound cards and more. Throughout the company’s 40+ year history, Turtle Beach has evolved into today’s premiere console gaming headset brand.
And as the industry has grown, so has Turtle Beach, developing advanced, award-winning gaming headsets and audio accessories for gamers from all walks of life, including professional esports athletes and streamers on Twitch and YouTube. In fact, in addition to creating the first ever console gaming headset, Turtle Beach has consistently leveraged its audio expertise and drive for innovation to bring groundbreaking features to market first.
