Turtle Beach outs Ear Force DPX21 Universal Gaming Headset

Turtle Beach offers a new deluxe combo package, which combines two of the company’s hottest products, the PX21 headset, designed for PS3, XBOX 360 and PC/Mac gaming, and the Ear Force DSS processor to transform the PX21 into a full Dolby digital surround sound headset.

The DPX21 headset is designed for Playstation 3, but also works with  XBOX 360, PC/Mac, video players, home theater systems and other devices that have digital optical outputs.
