Could they best the 'Halo' designs.
Last year, ASTRO partnered with Microsoft and 343 to produce several 'Halo' themed headsets, including the stylish Halo Edition A50 Wireless Headset (see here). Today, ASTRO has announced a venture with Activision and Treyarch in which ASTRO headsets are now the Official Audio Gaming Headsets for 'Call of Duty: Black Ops III.' (Btw, 'Black Ops III' is just this week beginning one of the biggest betas in the new console generation, see here.)
ASTRO is promising new 'Call of Duty: Black Ops III' eSports products, which will debut at PAX Prime in Seattle on August 28-31.
From Aron Drayer, VP of Marketing, ASTRO Gaming, "As we prepare to unveil a new evolution in ASTRO Gaming professional audio equipment, we’re honored to be working with Call of Duty, the leading console eSports franchise worldwide, and of course one of the biggest gaming entertainment properties in history. eSports has grown dramatically over the last 5 years, and with it the needs of the athletes has also evolved. Our new products will redefine expectations of what Pro really means. We will be working closely to spread the message about our new products to all consumers, while simultaneously helping to grow awareness of the eSports lifestyle overall, including competing, spectating and streaming."
The prospect of new headsets that are tuned to the needs of eSports and themed with the regalia of 'Black Ops III' is one worth watching for. Now to wait for PAX Prime.
