We'll have @heyeggshen and @macleanmarshall from Turtle Beach answering questions starting at 1pm PT. Thanks for joining us, guys! A question for you: I think a lot of people struggle when it comes to console-exclusive hardware solutions. Is there an ideal jack-of-all-trades headset for folks that want to jump from box to box?
IkeMaker@heyeggshen · Social Media Specialist, Turtle Beach
@russfrushtick Great question, and certainly one we get a lot! There are definitely workarounds to use a particular headset on multiple platforms, but doing so typically won't provide the *best* possible experience if the headset was designed for another system. Case in point, the Stealth 420X is designed solely for Xbox One — it provides a 100% wireless audio experience for that console alone because the USB interface works differently versus how it's implemented on PS4. So each of our 100% wireless headsets for Xbox One can *only* be used on Xbox One. We do have other models that can be used with multiple platforms, but you won't get that super nice experience of 100% wireless audio on Xbox One. If you're interested, here's an article to see which models can be used on Xbox One, and how: http://bit.ly/1zwlYus Here's another article to see which models can be used on PS4, and how: http://bit.ly/1xYnzrZ And finally, with the PS4 Dualshock and new Xbox One controller sporting 3.5mm headphone jacks, it's easier than ever to use one headset on several platforms. Hope this helps!

Yes yes yes yes yes! Can I get them now? Please and thank you. Seriously though. I've been wanting to get a fully-wireless headset for my Xbox One for quite some time. These look like the ones for me if you don't need a wire between the controller and headset.
IkeMaker@heyeggshen · Social Media Specialist, Turtle Beach
@samsabri Not a single wire from headset to controller, and a simple USB dongle to plug in to your Xbox One! Check out the unboxing video above to see for yourself =)

@samsabri And yes, Ike forgot to mention the Stealth 420X is available right now. You can get them at retail outlets, or you can order directly from Turtle Beach DOT COM.

@macleanmarshall @samsabri You know how it makes me feel when you yell at me, Mac. Hate you. Love you.

How do you keep battery life from becoming a problem on wireless headsets?
MacLean MarshallMaker@macleanmarshall · PR/Comms Director at Turtle Beach
@melissajoykong On the Stealth 420X (as well as some of our upcoming headsets like the Stealth 450 for PC) we have a battery life that supports up to 15 hours of gameplay. Suffice to say that "should" be enough play time to cover a typical gaming session before you need to recharge. Granted, there are some marathon gamers out there (myself included) who could challenge that 15 hours, but that's not healthy living...best to take some breaks :)

Are there any features you wish the consoles would support?
IkeMaker@heyeggshen · Social Media Specialist, Turtle Beach
@ems_hodge I think both Microsoft and Sony are killing it in terms of their current feature-sets, and even those are constantly evolving and being updated at a constant clip. Our engineers are doing their best to keep up with those changes and figuring out ways to continue providing a consistently great audio experience for gamers. Personally, I'm always excited to see what new fandangled feature pops up in firmware notes for PS4 and the Xbox One preview program.
