Turtle Beach aims at high-end Bluetooth headset for mobile devices
Headphones -- that is, truly high-quality headphones, not earbuds -- can be something of a rare sight these days away from a computer. They're often too bulky for a casual trip around town, and the best ones can cost as much as the device you're using them with, if not more. Having said that, the sheer fidelity and immersion of headphone audio can make the tradeoff worth it. Turtle Beach is banking on that with its new i30s -- we'll see if they're right in our review.

Turtle Beach, Activision to ship new headsets
Gaming accessory maker Turtle Beach teamed with publisher Activision on upcoming, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3-themed gaming headsets for Microsoft's Xbox 360, Sony's PS3, and PCs. They include the virtual 7.1-channel, programmable XP500-based Ear Force Delta that adds the custom paint, travel case and unique sound presets. The Ear Force Bravo uses the PX3 as the base design and has the same settings as the Delta, but only brings wireless stereo support.
