Turtle Beach Releases the Recon 70 Gaming Headset for Nintendo Switch

A couple of years ago, Turtle Beach debuted some of the most affordable, quality wired gaming headsets in the Recon 50 series.  Due to cost and overall excellence, the Recon 50s became the #1 selling wired gaming headset in North America (per The NPD Group/Retail Tracking Service/Video Games/Dollars/U.S. & Canada/Jan-Dec 2017 and Jan-Dec 2018 for Turtle Beach Recon 50X).  That was two years ago and, as technology improves, so do the products we enjoy.  That’s why Turtle Beach is ready to continue the Recon series with the new and improved Recon 70

While there will be Turtle Beach Recon 70 for every console, Turtle Beach has rolled out the first headsets for Nintendo Switch in North America.

The Recon 70 for Nintendo Switch is available now at participating retailers in North America.  It’s selling for the uber-affordable price of $39.99.  Compared to most gaming headsets, this is a massive bargain.  As of May 1, 2019, black and white models of the Recon 70 for Xbox One and Playstation 4 (respectively) will be available in North America, with a Midnight Red version available for PS4.  Right now, pre-order is available at the official Turtle Beach website.

For UK gamers, every Recon 70 edition is available to purchase at Argos, but the rest of Europe will have to wait until April 1, 2019 to fit their heads with the snug new gaming headset.

While you wait, though, take a look at the key features the Recon 70 line will include:

  • LIGHTWEIGHT COMFORT – A lightweight headset design ensures complete comfort during those hours-long gaming sessions featuring a padded headband and ear cushions.
  • FLIP-UP MIC – 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.
  • HIGH-QUALITY 40MM SPEAKERS – Superior 40mm over-ear speakers deliver amazing game sound so you hear every crisp high and thundering low.
  • PREMIUM EAR CUSHIONS – Synthetic leather-wrapped ear cushions provide added comfort, improved bass response and better noise-isolation.
  • MULTIPLATFORM COMPATIBILITY – Designed for the Nintendo Switch and also works great with Xbox One, PS4 Pro & PS4, PC, and mobile devices with a 3.5mm connection.
“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.”

The Recon 70 Wired Gaming Headset for Nintendo Switch is available now in North America.  Playstation 4 and Xbox One editions will arrive on May 1, 2019
