Gaming headset behemoth Turtle Beach has been releasing high-end gaming headsets for ages, always finding new ways to tweak the previous designs to bring a superior sonic experience to gaming, both in terms of audio from the game itself and creating clear communication between players. Turtle Beach recently announced that they are launching two new headsets this year, the Recon 200 and Steal 300. Both headsets will be available across all major platforms and include several features Turtle Beach has become known for in recent years. In addition to these new headsets, Turtle Beach announced they are expanding their eSports partnership roster.
The Stealth 300 will be launching this July and comparing it to being a wired version of last year’s Stealth 600 isn’t too far off the mark. The Stealth 300 will feature the same level of quality we’ve seen with other Stealth headsets, including the metal reinforced headband, memory foam ear cushions, a flip-to-mute mic with variable mic monitoring, a forty hour rechargeable battery the Turtle Beach’s unique ProSpecs glasses friendly design. The Stealth 300 will be available for both the Xbox One and PlayStation 4, and the Xbox One Stealth 300 is optimized for Microsoft’s Windows Sonic for Headphones surround sound for greater immersion in music, movies and games. The price point for the Stealth 300 is $59.99.
The Recon 200 seems to be the next evolution of last year’s Recon 150 and will be available sometime this fall. The Recon 200 is available in black or white, to provide amplified audio and enhanced bass and looking good while doing it. The Recon 200 delivers crystal clear chat and thumping game audio through 40mm speakers and a high sensitivity flip-to-mute mic, making it easy to cut the conversation at a moment’s notice. The metal reinforced headband and synthetic leather-wrapped memory foam cushions provide durability and comfort which is necessary with the twelve hour battery life. The Recon 200 will have onboard controls for master volume, variable mic monitoring and selecting between the Xbox One and PlayStation 4. Also, this headset will work with PC, Nintendo Switch and any mobile device with a 3.5mm headset jack
These two headsets are available for pre-order starting today from the Turtle Beach website and other select retailers.
