From Press Release:

San Diego, CA – May 1, 2019 – Turtle Beach (NASDAQ: HEAR), the global leader in gaming audio, today announced the Company’s all-new Recon 70 series gaming headsets for Xbox One and PlayStation®4 are now available at retail, in addition to the Recon 70 for Nintendo Switch™ that launched last month. With a MSRP of $39.95, the Recon 70 delivers high-quality game audio through powerful 40mm over-ear speakers and features Turtle Beach’s renowned high-sensitivity flip-up mic. Additionally, the Recon 70’s lightweight design, padded and adjustable headband, and leatherette ear cushions provide the necessary comfort during those long gaming sessions as players rack-up more wins on the battlefield.

The Recon 70 is the successor to Turtle Beach’s Recon 50 series – the #1 selling wired gaming headset in North America1, having sold over five million units to date. Further, the Recon 70 for Nintendo Switch launched last month and has already seen strong initial feedback, including a 4/5 review score and being designated as the “best budget Nintendo Switch headset” by Games Radar. The Recon 70 series gaming headsets also come in a variety of colors. The Xbox One and PS4™ models are available in both black or white with green and blue accents, respectively, while the Nintendo Switch version has a black frame with signature red accents. Also available at participating retailers is a unique midnight red version of the Recon 70 for PS4.

“The Recon 70 delivers outstanding entry-level value, elevating its predecessor’s offering with an updated design including our powerful flip-to-mute mic – a feature previously only available on higher-end products like the best-selling2 $99 Stealth 600,” said Juergen Stark, CEO, Turtle Beach. “With an even wider range of color options and broad compatibility with all gaming systems, we’re confident we’ll see the Recon 70 continue our trend of having the top-selling entry-level gaming headset.”

Today’s gamers spend more and more time climbing the leaderboards, making the need for superior audio, crystal-clear communication, and lightweight comfort larger than ever, and the Recon 70 delivers it all. Key features include:

Turtle Beach’s renowned high-sensitivity mic picks up your voice loud and clear to ensure your commands are always heard. Previously available on higher-end headset models, the mic can be flipped up out of the way to mute when not in use, and blends into the headset’s design.

A lightweight headset design featuring a padded headband and ear cushions ensures complete comfort during those hours-long gaming sessions.

Superior 40mm over-ear speakers deliver amazing game sound so you hear every crisp high and thundering low.
