My boys are big time gamers. Lil Man is more of a PC gamer, while Big Bro is always on the Xbox One. One thing that rings true for both of them, regardless of gaming platform, is that they’re always chatting with their friends and teammates. Gaming headsets are absolutely necessary is you’re a gamer and we’ve found the best gaming headset under $100. I’ve partnered with Turtle Beach for this post, though all opinions are my own.
When you’re gaming, you want the best sound and the Turtle Beach Recon 200’s powerful amplified audio with enhanced bass are on point. Not only is the game sound high quality, the chat is crystal clear thanks to the 40mm speakers and high-sensitivity flip-to-mute mic. You can actually feel it with Bass Boost and it’s even surround sound ready for Xbox One*. The rechargeable battery allows you to play for over 12 hours each time and the flip-up mic picks up your voice loud and clear.
One thing that I’ve learned living in a house full of gamers is that their equipment often takes a beating. Those great audio features are nothing without durability, so it’s a good thing that the Recon 200 gaming headset has a metal reinforced headband to provide extra durability. The synthetic leather-wrapped memory foam cushions provide comfort during play.
You’ll appreciate master volume on-board controls, variable mic monitoring and controls for selecting between Xbox One and PS4. But the great thing about the Recon 200 headset is that it is compatible with Xbox One, PS4, Nintendo Switch, PC and Mobile.
My boys sure do appreciate the Turtle Beach Recon 200 gaming headset and Big Bro swears that it is the best gaming headset under 100 bucks, which I’ll take his word for. You can pick up the Turtle Beach Recon 200 for a MSRP of $59.95 at Amazon.com and other retailers.
