Better Gaming With The Recon 70

This post is sponsored by BabbleBoxx.com on behalf of Turtle Beach

There are three dudes in this house, and all are gamers. My husband’s favorite games are on the PlayStation 4, and my boys love their Nintendo Switch, and all have been enjoying gaming with their new Recon 70 headset from Turtle Beach, which allows them to listen to their gameplay via a comfortable headset with amazing sound, as well as chat with other players online, all without bothering anyone nearby (read: me) who happens to be focused on something else. They are serious gamers, so it’s about time we invested in some quality gaming audio!

When I told my husband I wanted to try out a headset for the boys while they played their games, he asked “Is it Turtle Beach?” Apparently Turtle Beach has a high reputation among gamers for amazing high-quality gaming audio, clear communication, and comfortable designs that are light and unobstructive. Turtle Beach offer a wide selection of award-winning gaming headsets, and the Recon 70 is a headset for all levels that lets the gamer excel while mastering their gaming skills. It’s designed for the Xbox, and compatible with both the PS4 (PlayStation 4) and Nintendo Switch, as well as PC and Mac mobile devices with a separate connector. Since we have both the PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch, we didn’t need anything else to start using it right out of the box, and they quickly snatched it up in turns, and started to play!

The Turtle Beach Recon 70 headset looks good, it is comfortable, and it plugs right into the controller (or Nintendo Switch console). We love that the 3.5mm connection works with all our systems, so we can just switch back and forth depending on which they feel like playing with. The over-ear premium synthetic leather cushions are both comfortable and great at blocking out external sound, and the 40mm speakers are sharp so sounds both high and low come through crisply. Some of their games involve chatting with other players, and the high-sensitivity mic works well to make sure their pals hear them clearly. If they want to mute themselves, they can just flip up the mic (sort of like hanging up temporarily- really easy and intuitive!). The quality is durable, so perfect for my boys.

I’m looking ahead to a summer of my boys playing Forthnight (among other games), and it’s going to be more fun with better equipment. They love their Turtle Beach headset, and I just love making my guys happy. Ready to elevate your gaming? Learn more about the Recon 70 here.
