Turtle Beach Battle Buds Review – Built for Battle Royale

Turtle Beach Battle Buds
The Turtle Beach headset range easily has more of my favourite headsets than any other brand. I myself rock their Atlas Pro for my daily music, gaming, and music needs. They’re also one of the few brands that have a headset for virtually every price bracket, often more than one for each. The Battle Buds tick the boxes for the budget gamer though. At just £25, they’re pocket money friendly. However, when it comes to specifications, they’re packing enough to please the more serious gaming market too. Can they really be a great all-round headset/headphones for everyone?
“Built for Battle Royale”
This is the product tag line, and it kinda bugs me a little. A “gaming” headset should cater to all games, all gamers, not just one kind. I suspect this is a cash-in tag line to attract that crowd though. But I’m hoping they’re not a one-trick audio-pony so to speak.

What’s in the Box?
Everything comes nicely packaged. It’s only a small box, but hey, it’s a pretty small headset too.
Included, you’ll find the headset, obviously. It features a built-in cable with in-line controller and a 4-pole 3.5mm jack. That means it’ll work on PC, mobile, consoles, etc.
You get five sets of ear buds included. Two standard round sets, and three sets with rubber ear hooks. Of course, the five set is already installed on the headphones.
A small protective bag is included too, perfect for the travelling gamer.
There’s also a detachable microphone, with a flexible boom. Perfect for those who don’t always want to use it, and also makes the headphones easier to store in the carry pouch.
