“It is a privilege to work with amazing athletes that bring their sports talents to the digital battleground. This opportunity to partner with talent like Grayson is an honor and an important partnership for us,” said Ryan Dell, SVP, Global Marketing at Turtle Beach. “It is my pleasure to welcome him to the Turtle Beach family, and we are excited to see all the imaginative and fun content that we’ll create together.”
Grayson Allen just completed his third season in the NBA and second season as a member of the Memphis Grizzlies. He shined in the NBA playoffs as an instrumental part of his team winning in the Play-In Tournament and advancing to the first round. He is among the NBA’s leaders in three-point field goal percentage. Prior to the NBA, Allen starred at Duke University where he was one of the most decorated collegiate players in recent history, including being named an All-American, making the All-ACC first team, and one of only three players in program history to be a four-time All-ACC Academic honoree. Off the court, Allen enjoys playing video games, listening to music, going on adventures with his dog Teddy, and volunteering at children’s hospitals to help brighten up kids’ days.
Through this partnership with Turtle Beach, Allen is elevating his gaming with the highly-acclaimed Elite Pro 2 + SuperAmp Pro Performance Gaming Audio System – Turtle Beach’s premier competitive gaming audio setup for Xbox and PlayStation consoles. Turtle Beach’s extended strategic partnership with CAA helped facilitate this sponsorship.
Turtle Beach’s Elite Pro 2 + SuperAmp Pro Performance Gaming Audio System includes the Elite Pro 2 competitive gaming headset that delivers pro-level audio performance, crystal-clear chat, and unmatched comfort. The Elite SuperAmp provides powerful amplified surround sound and a variety of additional features. Gamers can control their game audio by connecting via Bluetooth ® to the Turtle Beach Audio Hub app on their mobile or tablet device.
Named a best wireless gaming headset by IGN, Turtle Beach’s Stealth 700 Gen 2 has been tuned and refined to deliver detailed and precise sound. A large, high-sensitivity flip-to-mute mic enhances chat clarity and seamlessly conceals into the earcup when muted. Aerofit™ cooling gel-infused memory foam ear cushions surround 50mm Nanoclear™ speakers, and a redesigned metal-reinforced headband provides long-lasting comfort and durability. Battery life has been upgraded significantly from Gen 1 with a 20-hour lifespan. Gamers can also use Bluetooth to connect to the Turtle Beach Audio Hub app to easily customize their audio and program the headset’s remappable dial and button, as well as to simultaneously listen to music or take mobile calls while gaming.
