Turtle Beach Recon 150
As one of the biggest names in the business, it should come as no surprise that Turtle Beach has a headset for everyone. We’ve seen so many of their high-end models over the years. However, at eTeknix HQ today we have one of their more affordable products, the Ear Force Recon 150. I’m sure many would love the Turtle Beach Elite Pro, but at £150 it’s not exactly affordable. Most consumers are shopping for headsets around the £50 price range. They want a headset that sounds great, look nice, with respectable build quality. The Recon 150 certainly fits that bill. Of course, with multi-format support, it certainly has added value. Especially so for those with multiple gaming devices.
- Rugged, Comfortable Design – The Recon 150 has a thick, rugged and robust frame just like its XO Four Stealth counterpart, with a plush leather-wrapped headband and breathable fabric-wrapped ear-cushions perfect for those hours (or days) long gaming sessions. Plus, the ear-cups fold flat when not in use.
- Versatile Compatibility – Works great with PlayStation®4 and Xbox One controllers with the 3.5mm jack, as well as with PC, Mac® and mobile/tablet devices with a 3.5mm connection. Older Xbox One controllers require the Headset Audio Adapter.
- High-Quality 50mm Speakers – Hear every crisp high and thundering low with these large 50mm over-ear speakers.
- Crystal Clear Chat – Use the high-sensitivity adjustable mic for in-game and online chat, and then remove it when watching movies or listening to music.
- Convenient In-Line Controls – The RECON 150’s convenient in-line controls place Master Volume and Mic Mute right at your fingertips.
PlayStation and PC Support
“The TURTLE BEACH RECON 150 gaming headset for PlayStation 4 delivers the unbeatable sound and quick access controls needed for multiplayer victory. The RECON 150 provides amazing game and chat audio through large, high-quality 50mm over-ear speakers while Turtle Beach’s renowned high-sensitivity mic picks-up your voice loud and clear. The RECON 150’s fabric-wrapped ear-cushions and leather-wrapped headband offer better breathability and added comfort for those hours-long gaming sessions, and the adjustable mic can be removed when watching movies and listening to music. Convenient in-line controls place Master Volume and Mic Mute right at your fingertips, and the standard 3.5mm connection makes the RECON 150 great for using with other compatible devices.”
