The Ear Force Recon 50x gaming headset from Turtle Beach is the right product for you! If you are someone who is just getting in to the competitive gaming scene or is just a serious gamer, look no further. This headset will cover all the needs and expectations you have for your first legitimate gaming headset because it’s price is low, it is comfortable, and it functions very well.
At under $50 this is the best headset you can buy. Since Turtle Beach is one of the most respected headset makers, you know the quality will at least be better than most. However, I’m here to tell you that this is the best low-end option. If you are anything like me, you will look at buying a gaming headset one of two ways. 1) Buy the best headset you can at the lowest price possible, or 2) just go out and buy the very best headset you can for upwards of $300. Since I was a beginner, I chose to stay relatively cheap and go for just an OK headset. I ended up with AMAZING value.
A huge worry for cheaper headsets is comfort. I can’t say the Recon 50x is comfortable as the very expensive headsets, but it is quite comfortable nevertheless. The headset is easily adjustable and has a good amount of padding. Personally I’ve used the headsets for hours on end with no comfort problems. One very minor nuisance is that if you have older Xbox One controllers, you will need a headset adapter. These are fairly cheap but they do slightly make the controller more cumbersome in your hands.
I have now had this headset for four months and everything about it still functions perfectly. I have not even treated it that well. When I bought this headset, the main thing I wanted it to do was enhance the way I hear the games I play. You really can hear the improvement! It is much better then playing without one. Even though this product does not have noise canceling, it does dampen outside noise considerably.
In conclusion, I would definitely recommend the Turtle Beach Ear Force Recon 50x for any serious gamer just coming on to the competitive scene. It really does all you could ask and more for a headset that costs under $50. Again, I hope you consider this product when searching for a gaming headset because it is WONDERFUL!

Great Product for Gaming
Posted by: SPIT from: North Jersey on
After a good 3 year run with my old headset, the mic died out on me. I was previously a Turtle Beach User but didn't want to spend over a Hundred Dollars on a headset. I found the Recon 50 and plugged it in, the audio was amazing and I was hesitant about the plug in Mic,..but it made my voice even more clear in my Teamspeak. I highly Recommend this Headset! A+++

Sounds like a great idea

We purchased this headset for my daughter. She uses them when playing on her keyboard or watching videos on her tablet, and they work great. They've held up well despite some wear and tear, and either they block out background noise wonderfully or she's tuning us out better... it's hard to tell.

Performance and quality exceedes the price
Posted by: rsdf from: on
Crisp, sharp, and detailed sound. Played my movies, music, and of course games and it worked just as well as my speakers, if not, even better. Comfortable and fitting size. Stylish with the colors and matches my rig and set. My eyes nearly popped out when I saw the price for this headphone. I almost felt like I ripped of the store for buying this headphone at its price.
On the other hand though, the only downside was that the build quality was a bit below. The material was made partially plastic so no stress on the headset like bending or anything similar to that or it might snap and break.
But overall, this is a great headset to have and haven't regretted buying this.

Pretty decent for the price
Posted by: Conrad87 from: on
This is the first set of Turtle Beaches I've purchased. At first, they feel like in order to fit comfortably over your ears the headband needs to rest toward the front of your head (Which feels awkward). The mic works great and being able to detach it from the headset is handy when you want to use them as wireless headphones for your TV. The main complaint I have is that they need to be plugged in to the controller. There have been numerous times that I have set my controller down to reach for something and it caused my controller to slam to the ground. I'm most likely going to trade them in for an upgrade to a wireless set solely for that reason. The sound quality is good and the volume is decent. If having a wire doesn't seem likely to bother you, this is a great deal.
