The gaming headset that Dr. DisRespect called “a bass-boosted, shatter-your-skull, extremely tactical headset built to take you to the next level”, The Recon 200, is finally available in North America! More within...
Back in June, one of the biggest names in streaming joined forces with the biggest name in gaming audio to debut the Turtle Beach Recon 200 Amplified Gaming Headset in a glorious 80s action video. Since then, gamers and fans of Dr. DisRespect have been chomping at the bit to give the new wired headset a try. Now, that opportunity is here, but before we get into the nitty gritty details, let's watch that incredible video one more time, for posterity's sake.
If that video doesn't put you in the market for the Recon 200s, there are plenty of other reasons that will. For starters, the Turtle Beach Recon 200 Amplified Gaming Headset is compatible with any gaming device. That means this headset isn't reserved for the Console Elite (PS4 & Xbox One) or the PC Master Race, but instead everyone can amplify their listening experience whether its on a Mobile phone, Mobile gaming platform, or even the Nintendo Switch, like the picture below shows.
While the picture gives an example of the Recon 200 being used with Nintendo Switch, this particular picture gives another important reason why you should consider the latest Turtle Beach headset, it comes in a sleek white design.
Look, don't get me wrong. I love the classic black design most gaming headsets have and even the blue trim and green trim PS4 and Xbox One have, respectively, but the clean, almost futuristic look of a white headset is hard to beat. What's also hard to beat is the price of the Recon 200s. Currently, the retail price of the Turtle Beach Recon 200 Amplified Gaming Headset is $59.95. That's an absolute steal for a gaming headset that can do it all and amplify every device.
For more tantalizing reasons to check out the Recon 200, have a look at the specs, below:
- POWERFUL AMPLIFIED AUDIO – Louder is better! Immerse yourself in your games with rechargeable battery-powered amplification.

It's well documented how much enthusiasm Dr. DisRespect has for the release of the Turtle Beach Recon 200 Amplified Gaming Headset, but matching that is the CEO of Turtle Beach Jurgen Stark, here is what he has to say...
