Star Wars-Themed Gaming Headset Announced for Star Wars Battlefront

Headset will be priced at $99 in the US, £69.99 in the UK, €99.99 in select countries in Europe, and AUD$169 in Australia.


Headset maker Turtle Beach has unveiled a Star Wars-themed Sandtrooper headset for the upcoming Star Wars Battlefront. A limited edition version of the Sandtrooper headset will be released exclusively at Best Buy in the United States. The standard version of the Sandtrooper headset will be released in the United Kingdom, Australia, and "select territories" across Europe.

The limited edition Sandtrooper headsets will be individually numbered and include an extra set of Star Wars speaker plates, which can be swapped in. Themed after the Stormtroopers deployed to Tatooine in Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope, the headsets are scheduled to be released this fall alongside the launch of Star Wars Battlefront.

In the US, the Sandtrooper headset can be pre-ordered for $99 at the Best Buy website.

Fans in other territories can pre-order the standard version of the Sandtrooper headset through the Turtle Beach website. The headset will have a manufacturer's suggested retail price of £69.99 in the UK, AUD$169 in Australia, and €99.99 in select countries across Europe.

Both the standard and limited edition of the Sandtrooper headset will be shown at this weekend's PAX Prime in the Turtle Beach Booth. Star Wars Battlefront will be released on November 17 for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
