Turtle Beach Recon Spark

Turtle Beach

Turtle Beach’s brand is synonymous with top-notch quality. The gaming headset company has a line of luxury models that may be too expensive for some, but investing in any of them is worth the extra moolah. In order to appeal to gamers who want to obtain something on the cheaper side of the spectrum, Turtle Beach has produced a much more affordable headset line. The “Recon” series (sold here) offers up a varied collection of wired headsets priced under $100. The latest addition to the burgeoning gaming accessory line is the brand new Turtle Beach Recon Spark. Like the rest of Turtle Beach’s Recon headsets, the Recon Spark is a worthwhile purchase for console, PC, and mobile gamers alike.

First off, the Turtle Beach Recon Spark is a definite eye-catcher thanks to its cool color scheme. The white and lavender colorway is quite attractive and helps it stand apart from the darker models from its headset contemporaries. When it comes to comfortability, the Recon Spark’s ear cushions feel great after hours-long gaming sessions. The foam cushioning does a great job of comfortably cupping your ears and blocking out any ambient noise. The in-game sound quality is top-notch too, which is pretty surprising considering the cheap pricing for this headset. It may not be on par with a $200-plus Turtle Beach headset model, but it’s good enough to stay in your regular headset rotation for years to come.

The microphone also does its job admirably – coming through clear to your teammates with loud and intense commentary is a regular occurrence. The fact that Recon Spark is compatible with so many gaming platforms is a definite plus – you could theoretically utilize this headset across all your consoles without any major adjustments made to each one. The only issue that arises when it comes to switching consoles pertains to the Switch. The decent length for the headset cable is fine when you’re using your Switch in Handheld Mode, but it presents problems in TV Mode. You’ll be forced to sit as close as possible to the TV since the headset can’t be connected to the Switch Pro Controller (Nintendo’s wireless controller still doesn’t have a plug-in for wired controllers). Hooking the Recon Spark up to your Switch in TV Mode just isn’t an option worth doing on the regular.
