In this new era of consoles and games, developers and console creators have been putting extra emphasis on elevating the audio heard in games. Thus, gaming technology and accessory companies are having to innovate to capture and elevate that sound. Today, Turtle Beach has revealed the all-new Recon 500 Wired Multiplatform Gaming Headset, fit with never-before-seen features and tech that looks to do just that.
The new Recon 500 Wired Gaming Headset will debut two new proprietary Turtle Beach features, the 60mm Eclipse Dual Drivers and the AccuTune wood composite- injected earcups. Both are set to take video game audio to ridiculous new heights.
Gamers can experience a revolution in gaming audio with the Recon 500. Turtle Beach’s all-new, patented 60mm Eclipse™ Dual Drivers separate high and low frequencies for ultra-detailed gaming audio across a massive soundstage. The Recon 500’s earcups are precision-engineered and injected with AccuTune™ wood composite, lending to enhanced acoustics for realistic sound imaging.
In addition to the latest Turtle Beach technology, the Recon 500 will also include the TruSpeak removable noise-cancelling mic and ProSpecs glasses-friendly design. Two features I absolutely adore. As someone who lives next to a subway, the TruSpeak mic was a big surprise for me last year. My buddies in party chat often never even hear the subway go by, even when the sound fills up my apartment. Also, as a glasses-wearer, the ProSpecs have always been a major plus.
“With our all-new, patented Eclipse™ Dual Drivers, Turtle Beach is once again first-to-market with groundbreaking gaming audio technology that makes the Recon 500 one of the best sounding headsets,” said Juergen Stark, Chairman and CEO, Turtle Beach Corporation. “The Recon 500 delivers some of the most impressive engineering advances our Recon series gaming headsets have ever achieved. It redefines what gamers will expect in a headset at this price point, offering an innovative design, masterful audio performance, and plush comfort.”
The Turtle Beach Recon 500 Wired Multiplatform Gaming Headset will launch in North America on May 30, 2021. It will release in Europe on June 18, 2021. Players will be able to purchase the headset in one of two colors Arctic Camo or Black for $79.95. Pre-ordering is open now.
