“The Recon 50 has been the best-selling wired gaming headset in the U.S. and Canada for the past two years1, and the all-new Recon 70 builds upon its predecessor with a refined design and our great flip-to-mute mic, all for the same $39.95 price,” said Juergen Stark, CEO, Turtle Beach. “The Recon 70 is also available in more color options and is compatible with all gaming systems, so we believe we’ll see the Recon 70 continue the Recon 50‘s trend of ‘best-seller’ with enough time in the market.”
With today’s longer and longer gaming sessions becoming the new normal, the need for superior audio, crystal-clear communication, and lightweight comfort is larger than ever, and the Recon 70 delivers it all. Key features include:
A lightweight headset design ensures complete comfort during those hours-long gaming sessions featuring a padded headband and ear cushions.
Turtle Beach’s renowned high-sensitivity mic picks up your voice loud and clear to ensure your commands are always heard. Previously available on higher-end headset models, the mic can be flipped up out of the way to mute when not in use, and blends into the headset’s design.
