Turtle Beach lists the best entry-level gaming headsets to buy for the 2015 holiday season

Turtle Beach has revealed a list of affordable entry-level gaming headsets that will be available for purchase for the 2015 holiday season. In a press release sent to us, Juergen Stark the CEO of the company first talked about how the Elite 800X and Stealth 420X brought innovations to the industry. He then revealed that many of the same designs and features were implemented to cheaper headsets:

So far this year we’ve released 11 new gaming headsets, including the acclaimed Elite 800X and Stealth 420X, as we continue to innovate and bring true value to the market with a variety of high-quality products we know fans will want for the holidays. Having launched market-leading headsets for the latest consoles and set new benchmarks for innovation and technology, we’ve made sure to spread those same high-quality designs and features across products for newer, entry-level gamers as well as for our tried and true hardcore fans.

Turtle Beach then revealed the selling points for each of the entry-level headsets, starting with the Ear Force PX24 (you can find the price for that particular model with this link on Amazon):

A prime example of this blend of innovation and value is the just-launched Ear Force® PX24, which is the latest iteration on two of the best-selling console gaming headsets of all-time – Turtle Beach’s Ear Force X12 and Ear Force PX22. The PX24 is a multiplatform gaming headset for PlayStation®4, Xbox One, PC, Mac and mobile/tablet devices, and comes with the all-new Ear Force SuperAmp™, Turtle Beach’s innovative, battery powered, in-line amplifier that delivers crisp highs and thundering lows from any connected device to the PX24’s full range 50mm speakers. The SuperAmp also includes convenient fingertip controls allowing listeners to tune the headset to their preferred gaming platform, and provides audio enhancements like Turtle Beach’s exclusive Superhuman Hearing™ audio preset, plus Turtle Beach Virtual Surround Sound, Variable Mic Monitoring and Variable Bass Boost. The PX24 also features an adjustable, high-sensitivity boom mic.Turtle beach Ear Force PX24 Amplified Gaming Headset 8
