Turtle Beach has revealed the Recon 70, the company’s latest series of “powerful and affordable” wired gaming headsets. The successor to the Recon 50, it promises to deliver high-quality game audio thanks to powerful 40mm over-ear speakers.
With a lightweight design that has a padded, adjustable headband and synthetic leather-wrapped ear cushions, the headset has been designed for the Nintendo Switch but works with any device that has a 3.5mm connection.
The headset’s high-sensitivity mic can be flipped up out of the way to mute when not in use, blending into its overall design.
“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 £29.99 price,” explains Turtle Beach CEO Juergen Stark.
“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 is now available at Argos in the United Kingdom priced at £29.99, with broader availability in participating European territories set from April 1st. The Recon 70 midnight red version will launch at retail in late May.
