Description

The Turtle Beach Elite Atlas Aero is one for the Best wireless PC headsets I’ve reviewed lately. It’s comfortable and customizable, and it offers first-class sound. And while $150 is considerably more than its counterpart asks, it’s pretty much the going rate for midrange wireless PC headsets. The Elite Atlas Aero offers nuanced wireless sound on PC – and as a bonus, it works wirelessly with PS4 and docked Switches, or in a wired configuration with non-docked Switches and Xbox Ones.

The headset does have a few minor flaws. Putting two separate volume buttons next to each other was probably not The Best idea, and the software is very skewed towards power users at the expense of daily fans. But if you have $150 and want to free your PC from the tyranny of wires, the Elite Atlas Aero is a reliable choice.

The Elite Atlas Aero looks like an upgraded version of the Elite Atlas that fits. You still have the sturdy black plastic chassis with a flexible metal headband and two large foam ear shells. This time, however, there are adjustable rods on the ear shells themselves instead of above them. It’s a bit hard to describe, however, the bottom line is that it’s easier to adjust the headset to get a decent fit – and a little easier to get it out of the way by accident.

The re is no doubt that the left auricle feels pressurized, and it takes a while to learn to navigate by touch. The volume wheel is also a bit on the aggressive side; even a slight tap makes what you’re listening much louder or quieter. But overall, the headset has an excellent design. It’s large, but not heavy, and folds flat for easy transport. By splitting the difference between an auto-adjustable headband and side notches, it also makes it reasonably easy to get a good fit.
