    Product Description

    A new standard in PC gaming audio has been set with the Turtle Beach Atlas Air, the first wireless open back gaming headset for PC. Atlas Air is equipped with low-latency 2.4GHz wireless + Bluetooth for reliable wireless connection on Windows PCs, PS5 & PS4, Nintendo Switch and mobile devices. Designed for the ultimate PC gaming experience, Atlas Air has 40mm drivers with High-Fidelity 24-bit audio mode, high-bandwidth microphone performance, a revolutionary floating earcup design, up to 50-hour battery life and much more. 40mm high-precision drivers paired with an open back design produce ultra-clear, natural audio quality for total immersion on PC. A best-in-class driver frequency range of 20-40kHz brings your games to life, letting you hear audio detail like never before. Plus, with 24-bit audio mode available exclusively on PC, enjoy a 96kHz sampling rate that provides a more accurate reproduction of the original signal for optimal sound quality. Immerse yourself in the middle of the battlefield with optimized audio powered by Waves 3D Audio, letting you hear ultra-detailed sound from all directions including above and below you, accessible via the Swarm II software. Refine your audio preferences even further in the Swarm II software with up to five profiles and multiple dedicated game audio presets, a customizable 10-band EQ, game & chat volume mix, plus activate, or adjust Turtle Beach exclusive Superhuman Hearing sound setting. Unparalleled audio performance is nothing without exceptional microphone quality. We engineered the removable, flip-to-mute microphone to deliver unmatched broadcast chat quality on PC, and extensive adjustability. The uni-directional microphone design inherently promotes noise cancellation, and with the best frequency response in its class from 100Hz – 16kHz, the difference in chat quality is clear. Turn on high-bandwidth microphone performance for pc (16-bit/32kHz sampling rate) for unprecedented chat quality in wireless mode.

Designed to be lightweight, and comfortable over long gaming sessions the Atlas Air has a floating headband as well as a world’s first floating earcup design, at a class-leading weight of 301g with the microphone attached. The floating headband is made from breathable mesh material, for easy adjustability and comfort over long gaming sessions, while also keeping weight to a minimum. The first-ever floating earcup design provides three-dimensional adjustability of the entire earcup to fit perfectly around your ears for maximum comfort over long gaming sessions. Keep your cool in the heat of the battle thanks to the breathable open back design and memory foam, glasses-friendly ear cushions wrapped in athletic weave fabric. Stay in the game longer, with up to 50-hours of battery life plus Atlas Air features quick charge so you can get back in the action right away.
