SAN DIEGO, May 12, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Parametric Sound Corporation (NASDAQ: HEAR) today announced Kenneth F. Potashner has stepped down from the company's board of directors.

"It has been a pleasure serving on the Parametric Sound board, and helping to guide Parametric Sound and Turtle Beach through a successful merger," Potashner said.
