The Turtle Beach Recon Controller is a wired gamepad that will release sometime this summer and retail for $60, the same price that Microsoft’s official wireless controller.
As part of its E3 2021 announcements, Turtle Beach, the gaming peripheral company known for its headsets, is entering the game controller market with its first Xbox Series controller designed specifically for the Xbox Series X/S.
Though Turtle Beach says, the standout feature on the Recon is that the controller provides easy access to your audio.
Though Turtle Beach says, the standout feature on the Recon is that the controller let you mix the audio of any gaming headset you plug into it.
The controller includes a small audio control center on the top of the controller with various buttons that adjusts the audio quality in a more accessible way. For example, hitting the button for “Superhuman” hearing enhances the in-game sound, which can be valuable for avid Call of Duty: Warzone or Fortnite players that can use it to hear the steps of their opponents.
Turtle Beach says the audio features on the Recon will work on any 3.5mm gaming headset, not just its own line of products.
Additionally, Turtle Beach has also announced the VelocityOne Flight, a new USB simulation gaming peripheral that Turtle Beach claims will provide the “ultimate flight simulator experience” and was designed in collaboration with aeronautical engineers and pilots, according to Turtle Beach.
It features a 180-degree yoke handle with rudder controls built into the device. While the design includes Xbox system controls and is compatible with the Xbox Series X/S, the controller will also work on Windows 10 PCs with both devices requiring you to connect via USB.
The VelocityOne Flight comes at a hefty $350 price tag and will also launch sometime this summer, making it another option for Xbox Series X/S players looking to buy a controller designed for Microsoft Flight Simulator as the console version releases July 27th. Stay tuned for more info as the Summer of Gaming continues.
