Turtle Beach Ships Noise Canceling Headphones
- Earbuds provide high -quality sound without distraction from noise -

YONKERS, N.Y., October 20, 2004 - Turtle Beach today announced the availability of its new ENC -S noise -canceling ear buds.

"If you're using regular headphones, you're not only listening to your music - you're also hearing traffic, crowds, or noisy engines," said Dominick Pagnozzi, Vice -President of Sales of Turtle Beach. "These buds are perfect for silencing annoying background noise while you travel on airplanes or trains or even to quiet down noisy areas such as at the office, workplace or noisy room at home."

Each ear bud includes a built -in microphone with special circuitry that monitors noise in the listening environment and subtracts its signal from the sound fed into the ear bud diaphragms. The result is almost total silence as external background noise is eliminated from the music.
Unlike simple passive ear buds, the ear buds' high -quality diaphragms are driven by an internal audio amplifier to provide high -efficiency, full -bandwidth audio reproduction for crisp highs and deep lows. The comfortable and lightweight design rests comfortably in your ear and can be worn for extended listening sessions without fatigue. A volume control lets you set the level to suit your taste, and the noise -canceling feature can be shut off with a convenient switch.

The value -packed package also includes an extra pair of ear bud cushion pads, a convenient carry bag, an airline adapter plug and an AAA battery, and has an expected street price of $49.95.

Turtle Beach makes its entire line of products available directly to consumers via its Web site (www.TurtleBeach.com) and direct sales center (1 -800 -233 -9377 or 914 -966 -0600).
