After wearing the headsets for a while the headsets start to overheat and burns my ears a little.
1 reply from Turtle Beach Support team - 19 days ago
Good morning Marcus, Please discontinue use of the headset & provide our Support Team with details about this. The Recon Chat headset is a wired, passive headset so what you described here is very strange. Our dedicated Support Team is always happy to help as needed, and they can be reached right from their Contact Form listed within the support section of the Turtle Beach website. Best regards!

Sooo bad!!! No cushion in the ear part, you can’t adjust it and it is made for someone with a gigantic head. Does not stay on! Sound is terrible even with volume turned up super high. The mic does not stay in place. Just overall a really poor product! Do not waste you money!!! Spend like 20-30$ more for something that can actually be used!

The headphone jack is not the right size and keeps popping out. This product is garbage.
1 reply from Turtle Beach Support team - 1 year ago
Thank you for leaving your feedback! The headphone plug on the Recon Chat headset is a 3.5mm plug that is capable of connecting to a standard headset jack on a PlayStation controller, so you should have no issue plugging it in. However, since you are having that experience, please take the time to reach out to our dedicated Support Team so they can lend a helping hand here. If that plug is damaged in some way, the team would want to assist you in getting this headset replaced under its warranty. We can be reached right from the support section of the Turtle Beach website. Best regards!

The ear piece has no real cushion on it and it is opened on the sides. It might have good sound quality but you can't even hear it with the volume at 100% (and yes, I turned the volume up on the wire itself). I had hopes they would work well as I have the full headset and use it regularly but wanted a headset with only one ear piece. The mic skips as you're talking but I'm not sure if that was my connection while testing them. Even if the mic worked great the earpiece makes them difficult to use. There is almost an inch of space between the piece and your ear. Also, the headpiece is very large. At the smallest setting, it is far too big and doesn't sit right on your head.

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I got this a few weeks ago. I am an avid gamer and needed a headset for my PS4. This is very comfortable to wear, the sound quality is excellent and it is well made. The microphone doesn't pick up my back round noise, which is a big plus! It has made my gaming experience so much better!!

Poor Sound Quality

FlowerMom1417 - 2 years ago

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I didn't too much like this headset mainly because of the poor sound quality and how uncomfortable it was. The headset fit uncomfortably on your head it was hard and the cushioned part that is supposed to go over the ear was also hard. It was really hard to hear because the sound was very low even when you had it and your gaming system on maximum volume and sounded like you were listening through a seashell. It's not good at all for gaming due to that.

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I got the Recon Chat headset for my son. He is gaming a lot here lately and needed a new headset with a mic. This is perfect for him. I like how it is compatible with any of his gaming systems. He doesn’t wear glasses, but it it is made to eliminate pressure from them for those that do. Great sound and mic works great as well.
