E3 is far too big to contain the power of gaming headsets, and not long after visiting with Astro Gaming we headed over to look at what our equally-loved friends at Turtle Beach had on display. Thankfully, we weren’t disappointed. They had a couple of new headsets to show off, both of which were somewhat more entry-level versions of some of their hottest products.
The Recon 200 and Stealth 300 are both technically less feature-rich products, but their lower-price and signature Turtle Beach quality should still make them appealing for gamers eager to improve their mediocre standard audio experiences. Both are wired for accuracy and sport variable levels of boost and comfy ear covers.
Even better, the Recon 200 retails for $59.95 while the Stealth 300 will set you back a slightly heftier $79.95. Both are designed to work on PS4 and Xbox One consoles, though Turtle Beach assures us the Recon 200 should work fine on that hungry Nintendo Switch and various mobile phones and tablets (thank you, 3.5mm jack, thank you).
I was able to demo each while flailing about helplessly in a match of Injustice 2, which has some of the best sound design in any fighting game; the bass hits harder than Superman and that’s no Joker. Bad puns aside, both headsets did the game more than justice – rather than injustice. Hey, it’s been a long show and Batman just kicked my fanny. I’m anxious to get more quality time with both after the hustle and bustle of the show, so stay tuned for any incoming reviews!
