Turtle Beach is one of the leaders when it comes to gaming audio. You will see the Turtle Beach name connected with a lot of eSports teams and competitors. Their Recon series of headsets add a ton of features that help give gamers a competitive advantage. With the introduction of the Recon controller, players are able to utilize all of the great technology Turtle Beach created on any wired headset. They also integrate some other cool tech into the controller that a lot of competitive players will enjoy for a much lower price than many of their competitors. The Recon 500 headset delivers all of the great sounds that you are used to from Turtle Beach and allows you to use it on multiple platforms.
These two products paired together are a match made in heaven. As a user of the wireless Recon headsets, it is really cool how they are able to apply those features to any headset connected to the controller. The Recon 500 headset has great sound as expected. Even without using the enhancements that the controller provides, the headset produces great sound. The build quality is really good and works well with those who wear glasses. I really enjoy the mesh earcup for longer play sessions. The controller build is very solid but light as well. Compared to the Xbox Elite controller, this is a ton lighter. Some of the materials may be a little bit lower in quality but the controller is a third of the cost. The controller is wired so that does help with some of the weight. Wired controllers also tend to have lower response times which helps with competitive play. The controller is a great alternative to the Elite and Scuff controllers on the market.
There are a ton of cool features for the Recon Controller and the Recon 500 headset that you can find below:
