San Diego, CA – April 4, 2017 – If you’re a gamer looking to replace the chat headset that came with your Xbox One or PlayStation®4, then it’s time to get more for your money with the all-new RECON CHAT from Turtle Beach Corporation (NASDAQ: HEAR). The RECON CHAT headsets for Xbox One and PS4™ are the latest entries in Turtle Beach’s family of award-winning gaming audio products and deliver a host of innovative features and functionality that raise the bar for what gamers should expect from a chat headset.
Not only is the RECON CHAT lightweight and reversible, but it’s a significant upgrade over standard chat headsets, featuring a large 40mm speaker and Turtle Beach’s glasses friendly design inspired by the ELITE PRO’s ProSpecs™ Glasses Relief System, Turtle Beach’s signature high-sensitivity microphone, and a unique open ear-cup which allows players to hear game audio from their TV or home entertainment system through both ears (in stereo). Additionally, the RECON CHAT has convenient in-line controls that place Chat Volume and Mic Mute right at your fingertips.
The RECON CHAT has an MSRP of $19.95, and is planned to launch mid-April in the UK and in select EU territories, and in mid-May in the U.S. at participating retailers. Global pre-orders are available now at participating retailers and at www.turtlebeach.com.
