FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

 

San Diego, CA – August 22, 2019 – Leading gaming audio and accessory brand Turtle Beach (Nasdaq: HEAR) today announced partnerships with Melvin Ingram and Isaac Rochell of the Los Angeles Chargers. The two NFL players join a growing list of pro athlete gamers, including 2019 NBA first-round draft picks PJ Washington and Kevin Porter Jr. and NBA star Josh Hart of the New Orleans Pelicans, who have teamed-up with Turtle Beach to provide all their gaming equipment needs. Whether they’re training and competing at the highest level against the best football players or gamers in the nation, Ingram and Rochell deserve the best equipment and Turtle Beach delivers on all their gaming needs.

“We are excited for Melvin and Isaac to join team Turtle Beach as their personalities and passion for gaming are a perfect match for creating and delivering engaging and authentic content to our fans,” said Juergen Stark, CEO, Turtle Beach. “The competitive instincts that define the style of both players are exactly what we look for in our athlete partners as we continue to expand our influential roster of gamers who are built to win on and off the field.”

Ingram was a South Carolina defensive standout and this year he begins his 8th season with the Los Angeles Chargers, and he is also a two-time Pro Bowler. Off the field, Ingram is also a dedicated rap artist, performing as Supa Mel, and he’s established the nonprofit foundation “Mission Possible” which provides educational resources for low-income children.

Rochell’s college career was spent at Notre Dame and he was drafted in 2017 by the Los Angeles Chargers as a Defensive End. Recently, Rochell took a public stand on the problems with social media and its impact on today’s youth. As such, he began championing the movement #SeeYouOnSunday, which urges social media users to put down their phones on Saturdays and go enjoy life.

Through this partnership with Turtle Beach, facilitated through an extended strategic partnership with Roc Nation and Roc Nation Sports, Ingram and Rochell will step-up their gaming with the highly-acclaimed Elite Pro 2 + SuperAmp Pro Performance Gaming Audio System – the Company’s premier competitive gaming audio setup for Xbox One and PlayStation®4. 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, and the Elite SuperAmp which provides powerful amplified surround sound and a variety of features, and a new way for gamers to control their game audio by connecting via Bluetooth® to the Turtle Beach Audio Hub app on their mobile or tablet device.
