Best gaming headset 2019: Our top wired and wireless headsets for PC

With monitor speakers getting weaker and weaker, one of the best ways to make your games sound as good as they look is to buy a gaming headset with a built-in microphone. There are plenty to choose from, too, so I've rounded up the very best gaming headsets around today to help you sort the symphonic wheat from the aural chaff. To make it onto…

Turtle Beach Elite Atlas review: The pro headset that drops the ball

Turtle Beach struck [block id="604477" title="Best gaming headset"] gold with their mid-range Atlas Three, and now it's the turn of their top-end PC headset, the Elite Atlas - and you know it's the big expensive one because it says things like 'pro performance' and 'designed with leading esports teams' on the front of the box. Indeed, at a princely £85 / $100, the Elite Atlas…

Feature: Three is the magic number

Turtle Beach Atlas Three review: A great mid-range gaming headset

Take one look at Turtle Beach's Atlas Three and Stealth 300 headsets and you'd probably swear blind they were exactly the same thing. Apart from the Stealth 300's giveaway blue highlights, both headsets share the same design, the same 3.5mm audio connection and flip-to-mute microphone, and both have the rather baffling need to be charged every 40-odd hours due to their built-in bass amplifier gubbins…

Turtle Beach double down on PC gaming headsets with new Atlas series

I've reviewed a couple of Turtle Beach headsets here in the past, such as the jumbo Elite Pro and altogether tiddlier Recon 150, but you know as well as I that Turtle Beach as a company have always favoured console-orientated headsets rather than good old PC ones - case in point: the Stealth 300 which only comes with a combined headphone and microphone jack connection…

Feature: The least stealthy headset of all time

Turtle Beach Stealth 300 review: Great sound, awkward setup

The new Turtle Beach Stealth 300 is a bit of a weird one. It's a wired headset that comes with a 3.5mm audio connection, but due to its built-in bass amplifier, it also needs to be charged via USB every 40 hours or so - something that, normally, you only need to do if it's wireless. Straight off the bat, then, the Stealth 300 is…

Turtle Beach credit battle royale for selling headsets

Once upon a time, Myst got many to buy a CD-ROM drive. Quake was the reason to own a 3D accelerator. The question asked of new PCs for years was "Will it run Crysis?" And, er, cryptocurrencies are devouring new graphics cards. Now, it seems multiplayer battle royale shooters are boosting sales of headsets. Once-struggling audio hardware company Turtle Beach have credited the mega-popularity of…

Turtle Beach Elite Pro review: Not for those with tiny skulls

A lot of headsets sound like they're playing a game of buzzword bingo these days, and the Turtle Beach Elite Pro is no exception. Are you a pro gamer who's into esports and want to play like the athletes you see on the internet? Well, the Elite Pro and its Superhuman Hearing tech, TruSpeak microphone, Aerofit ear cushions and ComfortTec fit and ProSpecs glasses relief…

Turtle Beach Recon 150 review: A no-frills gaming headset for just £40

As my quest for a comfy pair of headphones continues, today I'm looking at one of Turtle Beach's entry-level headsets, the Recon 150. Available for just £40, the Recon 150 is about as straightforward as gaming headsets come. Unburdened by fancy surround sound features or active noise-cancelling technology, this is very much a plug in and play kind of headset that doesn't require any additional setup,…
