Gaming headset makers Turtle Beach have partnered with Major League Gaming and will be developing the official headsets and audio equipment for the competitive videogame league. The first products to come out of this partnership, the new Ear Force XP7 and the MLG Pro Circuit Programmable Surround Sound Headsets, will be released this fall. Both were developed specifically for console and PC tournament use, and you'll see both in use at MLG Pro Circuit competitions later this year.
