Turtle Beach Recon 500

We recently got the chance to take the Turtle Beach Recon 500’s for a spin and they have impressed! They are a solid set of gaming headphones that provide great audio. For both games and for your voice. You have always got to have a great microphone for your teammates to hear you and the Recon 500 does just that! Better yet you can hear everything around you! Thanks to technology built into them.

Dual Drivers

This is thanks to the 60mm Eclipse Dual Drivers, they’re designed to separate chambers that control low and high frequencies. Vastly improved audio detail over a conventional driver. Mainly due to the larger 60mm size which produces a massive soundstage for all the gaming soundscapes.

Turtle Beach Recon 500 Microphone

The microphone is one of the best we have used, it has been developed specifically for professional gaming. The microphone is TruSpeak uni-directional, noise cancelling. Helping to deliver clear, reliable chat and it can be removed when not in use.


With the Industry-first Eclipse™ Dual Drivers, the ear cups need to be precisely engineered to help with comfort. The AccuTune precision tuning process uses a wood pulp composite injection in the Dual Driver cap for a new internal design to deliver rich, natural sound.
