Turtle Beach Ear Force Recon 70
The latest headset from Turtle Beach looks set to please those on a tighter budget. Much like their in-ear Battle Buds we reviewed last week, they’re priced be fairly pocket money friendly! The current Turtle Beach range has at least one headset for every price range on virtually every gaming format out there. If you want to spend a lot more (and get more) you’re well catered for. Just check out our reviews of the Elite Atlas, the Atlas One, and the Elite Pro 2! But their new Recon 70 trumps them all when it comes to value, so just how much do you get for your money?
Recon 70 For All!
Pretty much all the Recon 70 headsets available are the same. Despite the fact they’re branded for Switch, Xbox One, PlayStation 4, etc. The main difference here, however, is the colour. Each one is custom to the branding colours of the current console range. I should add, any of them will work on PC, mobile, etc. They’re 3.5mm jack headsets, so very widely compatible with everything else really.

What’s in the Box?
The headset comes nicely protected with a thick layer of shaped cardboard. The whole headset is also in a protective bag, keeping it free from dust and scratches while in transit. The packaging is pretty basic though, and all recyclable which is good. The headset is hard-wired with no other accessories in the box. Just one item, plug and play ready.
