Turtle Beach the leading-edge audio technology company and #1 in gaming audio, today announced the Star Wars-themed Sandtrooper gaming headset for the eagerly anticipated Star Wars Battlefront.
The standard version of Turtle Beach’s Sandtrooper gaming headset will be offered in the UK, Australia, and in select territories across Europe, while a limited edition Sandtrooper gaming headset will be offered only at Best Buy in the U.S. Each limited edition Sandtrooper headset will be individually numbered and include an extra set of swappable Star Wars speaker plates, truly making it something fans will want to add to their collection.
Both the standard and limited edition Sandtrooper headsets are planned to be available this fall timed to Star Wars Battlefront’s launch, and PAX Prime attendees can get a first look at the new Star Wars-themed gaming headset this weekend at the Turtle Beach Booth (#442).
Starting today, fans outside the U.S. can pre-order the standard Sandtrooper gaming headset at Turtle Beach, and fans in the U.S. can pre-order the limited edition version at Best Buy.
Ã‚Â “With as many Star Wars fanatics as we have at Turtle Beach, it’s been hard to not let the droid out of the bag about this unique gaming headset,” said Juergen Stark, CEO, Turtle Beach Corporation.
“Our top-quality gaming headsets allow us to work with the biggest brands in the world, and we’re very happy to continue our ongoing collaboration with Lucasfilm and EA to support Star Wars Battlefront.
We’re also excited about this great opportunity with our U.S. retail partner, Best Buy, to offer the Sandtrooper headset to fans looking to collect limited edition Star Wars gear and fully immerse themselves in the audio landscape that can only be served-up through the Star Wars universe.”
Themed after the squad of Stormtroopers donning the signature orange shoulder pauldron who are deployed to the sand-covered desert planet of Tatooine in search of Luke, R2-D2 and C-3PO in Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope, the Sandtrooper headset features an over-ear design for extended comfort, a removable high-sensitivity boom mic, and thundering 50mm speakers to deliver sound the way Star Wars is meant to be heard.
It also includes one set of removable speaker plates that can be swapped out to show off different Star Wars characters and iconic franchise moments. Plus, only available as part of the limited edition Sandtrooper headset offered at Best Buy in the U.S., a second set of swappable Star Wars speaker plates is also included for free.

The standard version of the Sandtrooper headset will be available in the UK for a MSRP of Ã‚Â£69.99 GBP, in Australia for a MSRP of $169.00 AUD, and for a MSRP of Ã¢â€šÂ¬99.99 EUR* in select countries across Europe.
