Final Thoughts

The Recon 70 comes in Xbox Black and Green colours so it can match your Xbox (if you have the black one that is).

The headset itself is fairly lightweight, with cushioned ear cups and headband making it comfortable to wear and use for long periods of time.

The headset is easily adjusted to make it as comfortable for you as possible.

The mic is attached but can be flipped up and moved out of the way if you are not using it.

It is a wired headset and can connect to any Xbox controller with a 3.5mm jack on it. The cable length is more than enough for comfortable play however you hold your controller.

The sound quality is very good and so is the mic – I had no problems being able to hear anything clearly and have whatever I was saying heard by the other players.

If you have an Xbox One and want a lightweight good quality headset in Xbox colours then take a look, and listen to the Ear Force Recon 70.

The Ear Force Recon 70 Wired Gaming Headset for Xbox One from Turtle Beach are available now priced at £29.95. The Xbox One version is also available in White and Green, as well as PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch versions.
