YONKERS, N.Y., February 12, 2007: Adding to its growing line of gaming headphones, today Turtle Beach announced the Ear Force W3 wireless headphones, designed specifically for use with the Nintendo Wii gaming console system. The W3’s ‘behind the neck’ design keeps them in place, while their connection nature means there are no cords to tangle during the active motions that playing on the Wii can require. The W3 design also complements the Wii color scheme, with a white base and blue accent lettering.
“The Ear Force W3 were designed specifically for the Nintendo Wii experience – they’re so light you can barely tell you’re wearing headphones,” said Seth Dotterer, director of marketing for Turtle Beach. “The Wii can provide great family entertainment, but there are times when you’ll want to play without annoying those around you. Kids can play without disturbing their parents, and adults can play late at night without waking up the neighborhood.”
Based on the same wireless audio technology as the popular Ear Force X2 Xbox® gaming headphones, the W3 can be used with any stereo audio source, such as a TV, PC or MP3 player. The wireless headphones function for over 30 hours with a single AAA battery (included). The Ear Force W3 have an MSRP of $59.95, and are available at retail outlets nationwide, as well as through the Turtle Beach website (www.TurtleBeach.com
) and direct sales center (914-345-2255).
