Speaking of, the biggest change that will affect how you utilize these headsets is associated with the controls. The offering is the very same (except for the USB-C port), but all of it has actually been moved around the edge of the left ear cup. Aesthetically, the new headsets button layouts are an improvement over the previous models, which had buttons sprinkled all around the ear cup.
If youre coming from one of Turtle Beachs older headsets, it may take some practice to learn the upgraded arrangement. The microphone is still a fold-out affair that automatically mutes when its tucked in, but it now forms nicely into the ear cup style when its off, successfully hiding it from view. Regarding the microphone, it still has the great tracking result when its in use.
