Review : Turtle Beach Ear Force Recon Camo Headset

With the New Years sales now on, Turtle Beach have a number of new headsets you might want to consider. Here is our review of the Ear Force Recon Camo Headset.

The Turtle Beach Recon Camo multiplatform gaming headset delivers the unbeatable sound and quick access controls needed for multiplayer victory. The Recon Camo provides amazing game and chat audio through large, 50mm over-ear speakers while Turtle Beach’s renowned high-sensitivity mic picks up your voice loud and clear. The Recon Camo’s fabric-wrapped ear cushions and 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 Camo great for using with other compatible devices.

A Closer Look

Final Thoughts

The first thing you notice when you open the box is the camouflage look of the headset. Well, let’s be honest if you didn’t want a set with camouflage on them then you probably wont be getting these.

The headset is very lightweight so you can wear it for extended periods of time without it becoming too uncomfortable.

The headset works well with Xbox and PlayStation and also with mobile devices, although I’m not sure you are likely to wear these outside the house! You may need to buy a headset audio adapter for your Xbox One controller, depending on which one you have, so take a look before you buy, just to make sure.

The mic is easily added and removed from the headset, and the quality is excellent. There is also a mute button and volume controls easily accessible.

Sound is provided via 50mm speakers and it is of excellent quality – you won’t be disappointed.

If you are a fan of shooting games, such as Battlefield or Call of Duty, and you want a great sounding headset to match, then take a look at the Recon Camo headset.

The Turtle Beach Ear Force Recon Camo Headset for is available now priced around £49.95, but as usual look around for the best deal.
