Turtle Beach Ear Force Recon 200 Amplified Headset Review

Turtle Beach Ear Force Recon 200

Turtle Beach is easily one of the most recognisable brands in the gaming peripheral market. Over the years, they’ve built up one of the largest catalogues of PC and console headsets Furthermore, their history now spans decades of gaming and a couple of generations of gamers growing up with their brand. I’m sure I’m not the only one here who has owned at least one of their headsets over the years. While I am personally a big fan and also a user of their premium headsets, such as the Elite Pro, not everyone has £250 to spend on a new gaming headset.

Louder is Better

The Recon series has long been one of my favourites, especially when it comes to products I review, but also personally. They’re far from the most expensive in the Turtle Beach range, but they’re easily some of the most versatile and exciting products Turtle Beach produces. As Turtle Beach themselves say “Louder is Better!” and that’s exactly what the Recon 200 offers. This headset comes with a built-in battery, which allows it to power it’s built-in amplifier, as well as deliver support for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, PlayStation Pro, Nintendo Switch, and Mobile devices. Oh, and even PC, because everything works with PC.


At around £50, it is easy to see why this headset is going to appeal to a lot of people. It’s not overly expensive, and it promises to work with multiple devices, meaning you only need one headset for all your gaming and mobile gaming needs. The specifications are not exactly lacking either, as it’s powered by their is iconic 40mm drivers, delivering their well-known signature sound. They’re also incredibly lightweight, feature a metal reinforced headband, leather-wrapped memory foam cushions, a built-in microphone, and much more.
