Turtle Beach Recon 200 Headset Review

If you’re looking for a great headset to get for yourself or the gamers in your life while sticking to a budget, you should consider the Turtle Beach Recon 200 Headset.

My youngest son got his first console for Christmas two years ago. Until then, he would play on my husband’s console or one of his brother’s consoles so getting his own was a big deal for him. For that Christmas, he also got his very own first headset which was a basic one, nothing fancy. 

This year, I was able to give him the Recon 200 and he absolutely loves it. He is thrilled with the difference it has made in gameplay immersion and accuracy and also hearing his friends so it’s a win-win for him. 

Below is his assessment of the pros of the Turtle Beach Recon 200 Headset

Sound

In-game volume is louder than other headsets and you can hear things that you cannot hear with the other headsets. This is convenient and gives an advantage and improved gameplay. 

The controls for volume, in-game audio, and mic monitoring is in the headset in the left ear. Mic monitoring is great and helps you to hear how loud you are. The headsets themselves are well constructed and not flimsy.

There is a built-in amplifier and the audio doesn’t sound muffled but is crisp and clear. The sound is not compressed and bass does not sound muddy.

You can hear enemy footsteps when playing shooters and you can tell exactly where the sound is coming from which greatly improves your accuracy. When you play single-player games it is an immersive experience overall. Audio sounds great while playing music and flipping the mic up to mute is an added bonus. Easy, comfortable feature. Ease of access.

Battery Life

The battery life is a huge plus and lasts longer than I’m allowed to play. 

Multiplatform Compatibility

I like that I can use these headsets to not only play on my Xbox One, but my brother’s PlayStation® 4, and I can use it with my cellphone. No more having to have multiple headsets or beg my brother to use his. 

Overall, the Turtle Beach Recon 200 headsets are a great gift for any gamer. You can find out more here.
