Turtle Beach Corporation have unveiled a Star Wars-themed Sandtrooper gaming headset for the upcoming star Wars Battlefront video game.
Themed after the squad of Stormtroopers donning the signature orange shoulder pauldron who are deployed to the sand-covered desert planet of Tatooine in search of Luke, R2-D2 and C-3PO in Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope.
The Sandtrooper headset features an over-ear design for extended comfort, a removable high-sensitivity boom mic, and thundering 50mm speakers to deliver sound the way Star Wars is meant to be heard.
You’ll be able to find the Sandtrooper headset exclusively through EB Games in Australia, in the UK and select international territories.
Each headset includes one set of removable speaker plates featuring different Star Wars characters for customising.
In the U.S., there will be a limited edition Sandtrooper headset available through Best Buy where each headset comes individually numbered, and includes an extra set of swappable Star Wars speaker plates (two extra speaker plates in total).
Both versions will be available in time for the launch of Star Wars Battlefront in November this year. Attendees at PAX Prime will be able to get a first look at the new headset over the weekend at the Turtle Beach Booth (#442).
The Turtle Beach Sandtrooper is compatible with PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC and mobile/tablet devices.
The standard version will be priced at 69.99 GBP in the UK, AU$169.95 exclusively through EB Games in Australia, and 99.99 EUR across Europe.

The Limited Edition Sandtrooper headset will retail at US$99.95 through Best Buy in the U.S.
Star Wars Battlefront is set to launch November 19th, 2015 on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and on Origin for PC.
