Turtle Beach announced that they are the number one gaming headsets/headphones company for 2011 according to data released by the NPD. The company led the field with 12 of the top 25 Gaming Headset SKUs in 2011, taking an average of 50 percent market share for 2011, with a 58 percent share in December.

“Turtle Beach created the console gaming headset category and we have been the leader ever since releasing our first Xbox headset more than five years ago. We are number one because our products are based on the principle that quality audio is a critical part of the video game experience and the market has responded,” said Bob Picunko, Chief Marketing Officer at Turtle Beach. “The latest NPD data has shown the strongest growth in the history of Turtle Beach and the category itself. The creation of a dedicated Gaming Headset category and our significant market share is a testament to the quality of our product and the desire of players to have a more immersive audio experience.”
