Turtle Beach is calling its upcoming $200 Elite Pro the first gaming headset designed from the ground-up for e-sports athletes -- people who play video games for a living. (Back in 2013 the US government officially recognized e-sports players as professional athletes.)
For the release of the Elite Pro, Turtle Beach has teamed up with OpTic Gaming, one of the more "prolific" e-sports organizations.
