This Xbox One version comes with full wireless support for both game audio and chat audio, meaning no cables between your headset and your controller or to your console.
That’s because the Elite 800 comes with a snazzy little docking station that works as the charger for your headset and as the wireless receiver. It’s magnetic too, so it has a satisfying click when you replace the headset for charging after your gaming session.
You also get active noise cancellation when connected to your console or via 3.5mm headphone jack to your smartphone or other audio device.
If you don’t want a cable at all, the Elite 800 is kitted out with Bluetooth connectivity for wireless audio whatever device you’re using.
There’s also DTS Headphone:X 7.1 Surround Sound for 360-degree audio in your games, which is seriously impressive technology.
When purchasing you can opt to sign up to be an Elite Member. With that you get an extended 2 year warranty, exclusive discounts and offers, a choice of a short sleeve Turtle Beach Elite T-shirt or hooded long-sleeve T-shirt and a choice of two free pairs of Speaker Plates to customise your Elite 800 headset.
The Turtle Beach Elite 800 costs £249 and the money for any pre-orders will be taken straight away when pre-ordering.
