Turtle Beach announced today that the official headset of Dr. DisRespect, the Recon 200, is now available at retail. The headset comes in either white or black, retails for $59.99 and works with just about any platform, including XbO, PS4, Switch, PC and mobile gaming devices. The Recon 200 was first announced by the below video back in June by Dr. DisRespect himself.
Looking at the points of emphasis below, if it delivers on it promises at the $59.99 price point, the Recon 200 could be a great headset. I am particularly impressed with it being amplified and having 40mm speakers, so hopefully we will get an opportunity to review one to see if it lives up to the specs. A few of the details as pointed out in the release:
