Turtle Beach states in their press release that thanks to a partnership with Activision, they were able to obtain unique sets of audio presets designed specifically by the audio teams at developers Infinity Ward and Sledgehammer Games - this allowed Turtle Beach to include custom-optimized presets for these headsets to enhance the overall audio experience for the game.
