Turtle Beach Elite Atlas Wired PC Gaming Headset Review
Peter Donnell / 5 years ago
Turtle Beach headsets continue to blow me away. Their Elite Pro 2 + Super Amp which we tested a couple of months ago, for example, is one of the best they’ve ever made. When it comes to high-performance gaming headsets, it’s up there with the best. However, while the Super Amp is a powerful tool, it’s also not something everyone needs. As a PC gamer, the built-in onboard audio of my motherboard is more than capable of delivering high-end audio for me. Perhaps you have your own AMP/DAC combo too, or you’re simply plugging the headset into a console controller. Either way, as a simple 3.5mm wired headset, this one ticks a lot of boxes. Furthermore, as just £84.99, it promises high-end thrills at a very reasonable price.

What’s in the Box
The headset is in there, obviously. However, you also get a quality boom-microphone, 3.5mm cable with in-line volume and mute controls, and a PC Y-splitter extension cable.
The controller is pretty basic, but still does what you need it to.
The microphone is very nice though, with a flexible boom, and an enlarged head with foam insert to reduce high-frequency noise.
