Accessories Update: Star Wars Turtle Beach headsets and Roccat Kiro mouse

This week, Turtle Beach heads to a galaxy far, far away with Star Wars headsets and Roccat launches a modular mouse

Turtle Beach Star Wars Headsets

Turtle Beach is allowing Star Wars Battlefront players to side with either the Rebel Alliance or the Empire thanks to two new branded headsets.

The Sandtrooper headset is inspired by the desert-dwelling division of the iconic Stormstrooper soldiers, and dons an orange shoulder pauldron to match the signature garb of the squad.

The headset is compatible with PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC and mobile devices. It features an over-ear design for extra comfort, plus a removable high-sensitivity boom microphone for chatting.

Audio is delivered via 50mm speakers, while the outside of the ear cups can be customised with removable speaker plates that include designs featuring different Star Wars characters and scenes from the films.

On the Rebel side, the X-Wing Pilot headset takes its cues instead from the orange jumpsuits worn by Rebel Alliance forces.

The form factor of the peripheral is based upon Turtle Beach’s entry-level Recon series. It also works with PS4, Xbox One and mobile devices.

The X-Wing Pilot features over-ear, synthetic leather-wrapped ear-cups. Inside sit 40mm Neodymium speakers.

A removable high-sensitivity boom microphone and convenient in-line controls for master volume and mic muting are also included.

RRP: 34.99 (X-Wing Pilot), 69.99 (Sandtrooper)

Roccat Kiro Modular Gaming Mouse

Roccat has launched what it calls the world’s first ‘superdextrous’ gaming mouse.

What this means is that the Kiro can be customised for either right- or left-handed users

However, unlike an ambidextrous mouse, this is achieved not through a single accommodating body shape, but replaceable side components designed to fit each hand.

Inside the mouse sits an Pro-Optic R2 sensor with 2,000 native dots per inch (dpi) tracking.

This can be safely overclocked to 4,000 dpi with Overdrive mode for increased responsiveness.

The peripheral is constructed including Omron switches and a 2D Titan Wheel for extra durability.

It also features Roccat’s soft-touch surface and illumination system.


Release Date: November 27th
