Each model features four discrete speakers contained within each earcup, handling the front, center, rear and sub -woofer channels and convenient individual channel volume control.

"When you're playing games, these headphones let you hear your opponents before you see them -giving you an advantage over your competitors as well as creating a more immersive gaming environment," said Seth Dotterer, Director of Marketing of Turtle Beach. "When watching DVDs, these surround sound headphones let you experience home theater quality audio without disturbing family members or neighbors."
The Ear Force headphones come in two new models.
