Turtle Beach has entered an exclusive agreement with Twitch to stock the streaming site's eSports and game events with audio equipment. Specifically, the Ear Force XP SEVEN and Z SEVEN headsets will be used for consoles and PC, respectively, as well as the TM1 tournament mixer.
"Turtle Beach makes the best-in-class quality, tournament-grade audio equipment in the industry," said Twitch CEO Emmett Shear. "The new XP SEVEN is a huge leap forward for audiophiles everywhere. We're proud to have them as ourofficial audio partner."
While I don't have extensive personal experience with the new gear, this is a smart move for Twitch especially. The site has blown up in the past year and I can only see it increasing in popularity as it makes moves like this and the recent integration with Xbox Live.
