Turtle Beach Xbox One headsets won’t feature surround sound at launch

Eagle-eyed Twitter and Reddit user Hou5er pointed us towards a rather interesting set of quotes that are located on Turtle Beach’s website.

Turtle Beach, a sound card and headset manufacturer, posted on its website that its XO Four and XO Seven headsets designed for the Xbox One, the latter of which is shown above, won’t feature surround sound when when both headsets launch later this fall:

The XO FOUR was designed to deliver the superb surround sound audio sent from the Xbox One Console. While this feature may not be available at the Xbox One launch, you can rest assured knowing that your XO FOUR is surround sound ready.

The XO SEVEN was designed to deliver the superb surround sound audio sent from the Xbox One Console. While this feature may not be available at the Xbox One launch, you can rest assured knowing that your XO SEVEN is surround sound ready.

As mentioned in the excerpt, both headsets are surround sound-ready, though it won’t be used when they launch. As such, the excerpt insinuates that the feature will be enabled at some point after the Xbox One’s launch, though that’s not confirmed.
