Sisi wearing the RECON CHAT headset by Turtle Beach. This one is for the ps4.

I’ll admit right off the bat that I don’t know a ton about gaming headsets. Well, I mean I didn’t before checking out the headset I’m about to talk about today. I don’t really game a lot, but the kids do. So when we got our PS4 (used btw) it didn’t come with a headset. I’m not sure if that’s standard or not, but a lot of games require an online subscription to be able to play. One of the cool things about that is getting to chat with other players via voice. So that’s where headsets come in.

But… darn a lot of headsets aren’t comfortable when you have glasses! The Turtle Beach RECON CHAT headset has the SpecsFit glasses friendly design, meaning no pressure from the headset pushing on your glasses. Which even after a few minutes with other headsets is a giant pain in the patootie! The special channel in the ear-cushion of this headset makes that a problem of the past. In fact, the ear cushion holds the ear-piece off your head instead of pressing into your ear, so you don’t have that painful “I’ve been wearing a headset too long” ache when you take it off after a long gaming session.

Plus, you want to be able to hear people around you when you’re gaming. Because who wants their mom to be annoyed when she’s trying to get your attention from the kitchen but you’re hunkered down with a double eared headset?  Not me. XD

Granted I don’t live with my mom, I just don’t want to BE that mom. So I was pretty thrilled to find out about Turtle Beach’s RECON Chat headset! Even if your console came with a headset, if it’s time to replace it, you’ll get more for your money with this headset. It’s available for both Xbox One and PS4, and it’s only $20. Seriously though, it’s awesome compared to a lot of $20 headsets I’ve ever purchased. You can even use it for your tablet/mobile phone if they have a 3.5mm audio output.
One feature the Turtle Beach RECON CHAT headset has is a open ear-cup, it lets you hear the game audio from the TV or home theater system (or your parents/spouse hahaha!) while at the same time hearing chat audio clearly. It’s an easy to set up (only took a couple of minutes to make sure we had chat turned on on our PS4) chat only headset at an amazing price.

Turtle Beach is a category leader in console gaming headsets and gaming audio accessories. Var was thrilled because some of his favorite YouTubers use Turtle Beach products and he was so about having something similar to what they have! From beginners, casuals, Pro’s and hardcore gamers, you can find the headset for you from Turtle Beach.

The speaker included in the Turtle Beach Recon Chat headset is a high quality 40mm speaker, with crystal clear chat audio. The high-sensitivity mic picks-up your voice (and your moms, people could hear me talking to Sis from across the room!) and ensures your every word is loud and clear.

I was really impressed when I played a game and was able to chat too. Granted I don’t game much when the kids are awake/around because they’ll need me every 2.5 seconds if I have anything close to a phone near my ears. Yep, headphones count. Var doesn’t seem to notice if I’m doing things that require me to listen and starts talking even if I’m in the middle of stuff. So it doesn’t happen all that frequently here. Late nights are moms gaming time! XD

Oh, I should also mention that I’m glad the PS4 version is blue and black, my favorite color. Aside from the awesome quality, inline controls and great feel of this headset, having it look good is nice as well.

What’s your favorite gaming headset? Have you ever tried a Turtle Beach headset before?

    My oldest son is into gaming. He would love this headset.

    That’s great that they made them comfortable for people wearing glasses. So often we get overlooked. Too bad we’re behind the times and don’t have a PS4 lol.

    Ohh I’ve been wanting to get a friend a headset because they literally use these banged up ones that dont even have full sound. Thanks for this review because now I can gradually narrow down on a headset.

    Oh I never knew this one yet and I guess my cousin will really love this. I need to check this with him as he may be interested on this.

    I love blue and black as well. I have been pricing these, I could really use one. I’ll head on over to check it out.

    This headset would be perfect for my cousin. She does telemarketing overseas.

    My husband and daughter are huge gamers! I haven’t heard of Turtle Beach’s RECON Chat headset but it looks much more comfortable than the one my daughter is using at the moment.

    My husband and I bought Turtle Beach headsets for our PS3 a couple of years ago and they broke within 6 months of buying them. 🙁 We are now in need of new headsets. I hope the Turtle Beach Recon headset will be a good fit for us. I love having the headsets for playing games and watching movies, especially when my kids are sleeping.

      Oh no! I’m sorry to hear that. My son goes through headsets so quickly, and I’ve tried all sorts of brands. So far the Turtle Beach one is holding up really well even though my 3 1/2 year old likes to use it for her tablet too and toddlers are pretty rough. Did the ones you have have a warranty you could make use of?

    I’m not into gaming but it sounds like a great product for gamers. I’ll share this with my hub since he play likes playing games

    Both my boys are gamers. Honestly, I don’t get what it is with those games. I am just a candy crush kind of person. 🙂 Anyway, I think the Recon Chat headset is something they’d love to have.

    My boyfriend and son love gaming and using headsets to talk to their friends while playing. No one in our family wears glasses, so we’ve never had to deal with the uncomfortableness of the glasses/headset combo, but I’m sure the comfort of this headset makes a big difference.

    Even though I am not a gamer, I know about turtle Beach. My kids prefer this brand over others. They love how good they are!

    My daughter has a similar headset. She is into gaming and this sounds like a great headset.

    It sounds like an awesome headset especially if you place co-op games most of the time. I like the sleek design, without a doubt!

  17. May 16, 2017 at 6:42 am

    I think my teen needs this. I’m tired of her never hearing me because she’s wearing bulky headphones lol.
