Turtle Beach Ear Force PBT Bluetooth communicator for PS3 unveiled

Jun 15, 2010

Turtle Beach makes a full range of audio devices from sound cards to headsets and more. The latest offering from the company is called the Ear Force PBT. The Ear Force PBT is a Bluetooth communicator for the PS3 game system that can wirelessly connect to the PS3 for chatting and VoIP during games.

The device can pair with two Bluetooth devices at the same time. That means you can pair with the PS3 console and pair with your mobile phone at once. That way you don’t have to stop gaming to answer a call that comes in.

The PBT also has a 2.5mm mic port that turns the Turtle Beach Ear Force X31 or X41 headsets into wireless headsets on the PS3. Those headsets are designed for the Xbox 360, but when used with the PBT they are fully compatible with the PSN chat function. The PBT headset will sell for $49.99 and will ship in July.
