PROSPECS™ GLASSES RELIEF SYSTEM

For those who game with glasses, adjust the ProSpecs™ Glasses Friendly System for added comfort.

1. The ProSpecs Glasses Relief System creates a channel in the ear cushion to help reduce pressure on your glasses frame. In order to adjust this, you must firmly remove the magnetic ear cushion. Hold the ear cushion firmly and pull it away from the speaker. The ear cushion is held there magnetically and should come off with minimal effort.

ProSpecs

2. Depending on the size of your glasses frame, use the tab adjustment to create the appropriate sized channel in the ear cushion. By default, the adjustment tab is set to the shallowest setting. To increase the size/depth of the channel in the ear cushion, simply pull the tab and attach it to the post based on your preference.

ProSpecs

3. After you’ve adjusted the glasses-friendly channel to your liking, place the ear cushion back on the speaker. The ear cushion is held there magnetically and should snap back into place with minimal effort. Please make sure to line up the magnets on the ear cushion with the magnets on the headset itself, as shown.

Mic/Audio Not Working – Check Setup

If your headset is experiencing any of the following symptoms, please review the instructions below:

  • SuperAmp volume control has no effect
  • Center (“Palm Tree”) logo is always red
  • You can’t be heard in chat

If you are experience any of the above, it’s possible the headset is not set up correctly. If you are having the above issues, please confirm the following to ensure that the headset is set up properly.

Make sure the headset is set up as shown below.

PS4_Setup.PNG

NOTES:

  • The headset’s main cable should be connected to the “Headset” jack in the front of the SuperAmp. This jack will have an icon of a headset above it. If the headset’s cable is plugged into the jack with the word “Out” above it (located on the back of the SuperAmp), the headset is plugged into the wrong jack. The jack with the word “Out” above it is the Stream Out jack. The headset would need to be plugged into the “Headset” jack in order to hear the game and chat audio.
  • The headset’s main cable ends are not interchangeable. The plug with three black stripes should be plugged into the Headset jack on the front of the SuperAmp. The plug with four black stripes should be plugged into the headset jack on the headset itself. Both of these jacks — on the SuperAmp and the headset itself — will have icons of a headset just above them.
  • Make sure to fully insert the cable into the jack on the headset. It is a snug fit, and you should feel the plug slide into place twice. The cable is not fully inserted/plugged in until the plug slides into place the second time. An easy way to check if your headset cable is plugged in all the way is to make sure that the headset and mic icons (located on the headset and mic boom, respectively) are lined up with each other.
  • The mic should be plugged into the mic jack on the headset itself. This jack will have the image of a mic just above it.
  • The mic mute on the headset’s main cable will have a red line showing when the mic is muted. If you can see that red line, the mic is muted; move the mic mute switch so that you cannot see that red line. The mic will be unmuted, and you should be able to be heard.

Update Firmware with Turtle Beach Audio Hub

For the best audio experience with your Elite Pro 2 + SuperAmp for PS4 headset, it is important to make sure your headset is running the latest firmware. Updating the headset’s firmware is simple and easy with the Turtle Beach Audio Hub.

Full instructions for updating the firmware can be found below.

First, download and install the Turtle Beach Audio Hub for Windows or Mac, if you have not yet done so.

**Please NOTE: The mobile version of the Turtle Beach Audio Hub cannot be used to update the headset’s firmware. The firmware update must be performed on a Windows or Mac computer, using the desktop version of the Turtle Beach Audio Hub.**

Once the Audio Hub is installed:

1. Open and run the Turtle Beach Audio Hub application.

2. Plug the mini USB end of the cable into the mini USB port on the back of the SuperAmp. Then, plug the USB end of the cable into a free USB port on the computer, while pressing and holding the Bluetooth button. The LED will blink red.

When plugged in, the connections should look as shown below:

PC_Setup_-_Copy.PNG

3. The Audio Hub will detect that the Elite Pro 2 SuperAmp is connected, and will automatically search for any available firmware updates. If there is an available firmware update, the Audio Hub will automatically prompt you to update the headset.

SuperAmpP_Update_Firmware.PNG

ALTERNATE SETUP — TVs WITH OPTICAL OUT

Alternatively, if your TV/Receiver has a digital optical audio output (typically labeled as Digital OutSPDIF Out or Optical Out) you may be able to connect your Elite Pro 2 Superamp (via Optical Cable) to this port on your TV/Receiver.

On some TVs, the Optical Digital output is disabled by default; you may need to go into your TV’s settings menu and enable that output. The exact names of the settings will vary widely between TV models; you’ll need to go to the TV’s “Audio” or “Sound” settings, look for where to control the outputs, and enable the Digital Optical audio output. Set the “format” of the output to “Bitstream”, “Surround”, or equivalent. If you have a choice between “Fixed” and “Variable” level, select the Fixed level option.

This port is usually illuminated by a red light and may be covered by a rubber ‘flap’. The image below shows an uncovered optical output.

Once the optical cable is connected,

  1. Go to Settings >> Devices >> Audio Devices.
  2. Select USB Headset (Turtle Beach Elite SuperAmp) for Input & Output Devices.
  3. Set Volume Control (Headphones) to the maximum level.

If your TV/Receiver does not have an optical output, please contact our technical support team for other options here.


PS5 Compatibility And Setup

The Elite Pro 2 + SuperAmp for PlayStation is compatible with the PlayStation 5 by connecting the SuperAmp to the console’s USB port.  However, to enjoy the separate game and chat function, you will need to use an alternate setup.  The PlayStation 5 does not have a S/PDIF Optical Out audio port and requires a different setup than the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 4 Pro.

When using the PS5, it is necessary to use an audio output from either your TV or Receiver.  An added benefit of this setup is the ability to listen to any audio your TV would normally play even if it’s not through the PS5.

If your TV/Receiver has a digital optical audio output (typically labeled as Digital OutSPDIF Out or Optical Out) then connect your SuperAmp to this port on your TV/Receiver.

On some TVs, the Optical Digital output is disabled by default; you may need to go into your TV’s settings menu and enable that output. The exact names of the settings will vary widely between TV models; you’ll need to go to the TV’s “Audio” or “Sound” settings, look for where to control the outputs, and enable the Digital Optical audio output. Set the “format” of the output to “Bitstream”, “Surround”, or equivalent. If you have a choice between “Fixed” and “Variable” level, select the Fixed level option.

This port is usually illuminated by a red light and may be covered by a rubber ‘flap’. The image below shows an uncovered optical output.

Once the optical cable is connected to your SuperAmp, go into the PS5 settings and follow the instructions below:

    1. Go to Settings >> Sound >> Audio Output >> Output Device
        • Select USB Headset (SuperAmp) for Output Devices
    2. Go to Settings >> Sound >> Volume >> Headphones
        • Set Volume Control (Headphones) to the maximum level
    3. Set Output to Headphones to Chat Audio. <——- *IMPORTANT*

Audio Hub Features & Controls

The Elite Pro 2 + SuperAmp for PS4 offers features that can be customized with the Turtle Beach Audio Hub for both Android and iOS.

Please note that this article applies only to the mobile version of the Turtle Beach Audio Hub; these customizations cannot be made through the desktop version of the Turtle Beach Audio Hub. The desktop version of the Turtle Beach Audio Hub would be for firmware updates only.

 You can download the Turtle Beach Audio Hub app here.

Once the Turtle Beach Audio Hub is downloaded on your smartphone/mobile device, and the SuperAmp is paired via Bluetooth to that device, you’ll be able to use all of the features of the Turtle Beach Audio Hub, including customizing the audio, the headset controls, and even creating presets to use with your Elite Pro 2 headset!

Please note: While the screenshots in this article are of the Android version of the Audio Hub app, the screens shown for the iOS version of the App will appear either the same or similar.

HOME SCREEN

Page_1_-_PS4.jpg

  1. Game/Chat Mix
    • This will control the balance between the amount of Game audio you hear, and the amount of Chat audio you hear. If this is set closer to the word Chat, you’ll hear more Chat audio than Game audio; if this is set closer to the word Game, you’ll hear more Game audio than Chat audio. If this set all the way to one side or the other, you will hear only the Game audio, or only the Chat audio. For an equal balance of Game and Chat audio, set this in the middle.
  2. Mic Monitor
    • The Mic Monitor feature allows you to hear yourself through the headset when you speak into the mic. This setting allows you to adjust the volume of your own voice in the headset when you speak into the mic. If this is set all the way to the left, you will not hear your own voice. If this is set all the way to the right, you will hear your own voice loudly.
  3. Superhuman Hearing
    • This toggle allows you to engage Superhuman Hearing, which allows you to hear far-off noises like enemy footsteps or weapons reloads in crucial moments — and then disengage Superhuman Hearing when you no longer need it.
  4. Chat Boost
    • When engaged, Chat Boost automatically raises the chat audio when the Game audio is raised/gets louder.
  5. Surround Sound Mode
    • This adjusts the mode the Surround Sound is in. The headset comes with the following four Surround Sound modes: Game, Movie, Music, Stereo
  6. Game Preset
    • This adjusts the game audio you hear through the headset. The headset comes with the following four Presets: Signature SoundBass BoostBass + Treble BoostVocal Boost.
      • You can also create custom Game Presets to use. See Presets Customization below, or click here for more information.

VOICE PROMPT/TONE SCREEN

EPro_2P_-_No_TTS.jpg

  1. Voice Prompt Level
    • This setting controls how loud the voice prompts that you hear in your headset play.  These prompts play when powering the Bluetooth on, and when pairing the Bluetooth. If you turn this all the way down, you will not hear the Voice Prompts at all. (You will also get a message telling you that you have muted the Voice Prompts and will not be able to hear them.)
  2. Tones Level
    • This setting controls how loud the tones that you hear in your headset play.  These tones play when engaging and disengaging certain features. If you turn this all the way down, you will not hear the Tones at all. (You will also get a message telling you that you have muted the Tones and will not be able to hear them.)
  3. Do Not Disturb (Android Only)
    • If your phone supports this feature this will turn on/off its Do Not Disturb function.  This will prevent your phone from ringing/vibrating when receiving calls/texts when you’re trying to take a game seriously.
  4. Mic Noise Gate
    • This makes it easier to ensure your voice is coming through the mic, instead of background noise.

LED/STREAM SCREEN
Page_3_-_PS4.jpg

  1. LED Mode
    • This control allows you to cycle the SuperAmp’s LEDs through the three available modes: Normal (LEDs are lit solid); Stealth (LEDs are off); Audio Meter (the volume LED will vary depending on the amount and volume of the incoming audio).
  2. LED Color
    • When the mic is disconnected/muted, this LED will be Red. When the mic is connected and unmuted, you can change the color of the SuperAmp’s center LED. You can also create custom colors.
      • See Presets Configuration below for more information on custom LED colors.
  3. LED Brightness
    • Set this all the way to the right, and the SuperAmp LEDs will light up brightly. Set this all the way to the left, and the SuperAmp LEDs will be very dim/off.
  4. Stream Preset
    • Use the Stream Presets to adjust your outgoing audio when you stream. The headset comes with the following four Presets: Signature SoundBass BoostBass + Treble BoostVocal Boost.
