Gaming headset and audio accessory company Turtle Beach Corporation with offices in La Jolla and Poway, was recognized for an unprecedented fourth consecutive year in a row as the industry’s “Best Peripherals and Accessories Brand” during last week’s MCV Awards 2017 show held in London. Beyond receiving the award for the last four years, Turtle Beach previously received the same award in 2012, making it the fifth time in six years the company has been voted as best in class. MCV is a gaming news and community outlet for professionals working within the UK and international video games market.
The award comes as Turtle Beach announced it held 47% of the total UK console gaming headset market share in 2016, and topped a nationwide poll of over 170 retailers to retain its position as the best quality peripherals manufacturer. Turtle Beach’s roots stem back over 40 years, with the past decade-plus seeing the company pioneer and consistently be a leader in the console gaming headset category. In addition to this latest accolade from MCV UK, last week Turtle Beach announced its 2016 market share, which continues showing the company’s dominance in the space with 42% of the console gaming headset market in the U.S. per the latest NPD data, making Turtle Beach the market share leader in this space for the past seven years running.
“It’s an astonishing achievement to win this honor from MCV and the industry for a fourth time in a row and fifth time overall, and we’re extremely grateful,” said Juergen Stark, CEO, Turtle Beach Corporation. “We’ve had an extremely productive 2016 with the launch of our acclaimed ELITE PRO line of eSports-focused products, and we continue to develop and innovate in all aspects of gaming audio to deliver products with features gamers want. With E3 2017 on the horizon, we’re planning to unveil this year’s all-new products, and we’re confident our upcoming line-up will once again impress gamers.”
“Turtle Beach’s four wins in a row is an incredible achievement – unsurpassed in recent years,” said MCV Editor, Seth Barton. “Year-on-year senior buyers in gaming retail have voted overwhelmingly for the company as their preferred partner for peripherals and accessories. Turtle Beach is undoubtedly at the top of its game.”
