In anticipation of Blizzard's upcoming multiplayer online battle arena game, audio peripheral company Turtle Beach announced today the availability of its Heroes of the Storm PC gaming headset. The headset features swappable speaker plates depicting iconic Blizzard characters from the past 20 years, including those found in its Warcraft, Diablo, and StarCraft franchises.
In April, Parametric Sound Corporation’s gaming audio brand Turtle Beach announced a multi-year licensing deal with Blizzard Entertainment around the gaming bellwether’s upcoming freemium MOBA (multiplayer online battle arena) title Heroes of the Storm. That partnership has led to the creation of the Turtle Beach Ear Force Heroes of the Storm Gaming headset, which the peripheral maker happily showed us during Blizzcon 2014.
Turtle Beach hasn't forgotten about PC gamers. In fact, Turtle Beach just announced the availability of its Ear Force Z60 PC gaming headset that was first unveiled at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) earlier this year in Las Vegas. According to Turtle Beach, the Ear Force Z60 is the first and only PC gaming headset to utilize the new DTS Headphone:X 7.1 surround sound.
While today's top deal looks like a phone, the Logitech diNovo is actually a mini wireless keyboard. On sale for $60 (normally $150 - use $10 mail-in rebate), the device will allow you to type and navigate on your PC from 30 feet away via Bluetooth 2.0. The diNovo also features backlighting for when you need to type in dimly-lit rooms.

Aesop tried to teach us that slow and steady wins the race and he used a turtle to drive the point home. That's cute, but out here in the real world, companies are blitzing the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) with pre-show announcements quick as can be, and that includes Turtle Beach, which unveiled a bunch of new products spanning wireless, mobile, and Dolby Surround Sound technologies.
One of the reasons we picked Turtle Beach’s Ear Force HPA2 headset as one of the 19 awesome upgrades we recommended in our June 2007 issue was the fact that it’s analog and can be paired with a soundcard. The new Ear Force AK-R8 is USB only, but this enables it to offer some compelling features in addition to fabulous surround sound.
