Should you buy the Turtle Beach Recon 70?

PCGameBenchmark has reviewed pretty much every PC gaming headset available on Amazon. We've ignored some of the smaller and generic brands. We've filtered to only show the best gaming headsets wireless and wired available to buy right now - this Turtle Beach gaming headset made our 2021 list.

Now's a great time to buy a new PC gaming headset. So many games are enhanced with great audio, there are always Turtle Beach deals to be had and there's a massive range to chose from. High quality sound is super important when you’re playing and the speakers built into gaming monitors are pretty rubbish. If you’re looking to hear someone creep up on you in Fortnite or love the bass on Apex Legends, you need a proper immersive audio experience and the privacy that comes with it.

PCGameBenchmark ratings are built up from the scores the Amazon community give the most important aspects of a PC gaming headset. We merge those scores to create a percentage rating.

With a customer rating of four stars on Amazon, the combination of an attractive set of features with its competitive price make the Turtle Beach Recon 70 a popular purchase with gamers across all formats, even when it’s not Black Friday. This lightweight and comfortable headset wraps your ears in synthetic leather ear cushions to let you wear them for hours. The 40mm over-ear speakers deliver crisp highs and throbbing lows that increase the sense of audio immersion without sound leaking out into the room. All Turtle Beach products are well known for their high-sensitivity microphones that pick up your voice and deliver your commands and warnings crisply and clearly. The Recon 70’s mic also flips out of the way to automatically mute your voice.

It’s a virtually certainty that the Turtle Beach Recon 70 will be available on a Black Friday 2021 discount deal, so check Amazon to see whether this headset will be in the Black Friday 2021 sale. The multi-platform compatibility of the Recon 70 makes it a hugely popular headset for console gamers, ranking in the Amazon top ten for Xbox One, PS4 and Nintendo Switch. Designed for the Xbox One’s 3.5mm jack, other controllers require the Headset Audio Controller (sold separately), while PCs with pink and green jacks require a PC Splitter Cable (also sold separately).
