Turtle Beach Elite Atlas Headset Review

Here we go with another gaming headset review. This one is the new Turtle Beach Elite Atlas Headset. We’ve been the recipients of some Turtle Beach products in the past. The most recent was the Ear Force Recon Chat headset. These headphones are on the higher end of the spectrum of gaming headphones.

Elite Atlas Headset Build and Comfort

The headset has a great build. The ear cups are soft and very padded. The material on them gives the wearer a long lasting comfort to wear for hours. The headband is nicely padded and very giving. They are flexible and durable. The removable microphone is easy to adjust and twists and molds into different positions suitable to the user. The ProSpecs™ design will eliminate pressure on those who wear glasses.

Elite Atlas Headset Sound

Because of the padding of the earcups, the headphones are great for blocking out other noises. With the 50mm Nanoclear speakers, you get quality sound. The braided wired cord does make a little noise when it brushes your clothes, but it’s only noticeable when there is no other sound coming through the headphones. Truspeak™ technology gives the microphone excellent sound quality.

For $99, these quality gaming headphones have great sound, and I think they would make a great Christmas gift for the gamer in your life. You can check them out some more on the Turtle Beach website, and get free shipping there as well.

Turtle Beach Ear Force Recon Chat Review

ReconChat-PS-PackagePhoto-1200x1200For the video gamer looking for a simple way to chat while playing on their PS4 Pro, PS4, Xbox One, or even mobile device, Turtle Beach has a relatively inexpensive answer: the Ear Force Recon Chat.

This product would primarily be used for chatting during a game. If you want to include your family and friends in the room with you during the game, this would definitely be the ideal way. Anyone can still hear the volume coming into/out of the ear cup. The description on the box says that this “Open ear-cup allows you to hear game audio in both ears.” Likewise, you can reverse what side you have your ear-cup on.

The shape of the earcup is unique to allow it to fit over glasses. That might be a bonus to many gamers. There isn’t a lot of padding to the headset, but it does feel reasonably comfortable. There’s not really a fair comparison to other Turtle Beach headsets that are more expensive. They aren’t bad for the price. You get what you pay for. Some gamers might prefer the non-bulky experience of this headset to the heavier ones that weigh you down after a while.

The mic does make your voice heard clearly, and it is adjustable, as well as having the toggle on the wire for volume control, or to mute the mic. This gaming audio product is not yet available in the U.S., but you can pre-order one on the Turtle Beach site for $19.95. It is anticipated to ship starting May 15th. You can either get blue for PS4, or green for XBox.

Turtle Beach Stealth 350VR

Turtle BeachSo, it looks like it is another great day to review a great another pair of gaming headphones, and this is from Turtle Beach with Stealth 350VR. I believe that this would be the first time that I reviewed Turtle Beach product, and I hope that it is not the last.

I’m not certain why it is called the Stealth 350VR, because I am not certain why 350 is in the name. I mean, the VR is obvious because the Stealth 350VR has an ergonomic VR design which is good for VR headband cables like the PlayStation VR, Oculus Rift, and HTC Vive. To this writing, VR hasn’t really taken off, and maybe it is necessary to make it more…comfortable to an average user.

The Turtle Beach Stealth 350VR has large 50mm Neodymium speakers which has over-the-ear cushions that has some great highs and lows. To make this even more great, it has battery-powered amplification, and it is rechargeable to make it good enough for 30 hours. Some of these controls are on the earcups themselves.

Oh, there is also a noise-cancelling microphone, and it will plug in and can be removed for things like listening to music.

So, this is quite something, and the only thing that it doesn’t have is wireless capability. Perhaps there is another time for that. In the meantime, it can be purchased on the Turtle Beach website for $79.95.
