FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

San Diego, CA – April 4, 2017 – If you’re a gamer looking to replace the chat headset that came with your Xbox One or PlayStation ®4, then it’s time to get more for your money with the all-new RECON CHAT from Turtle Beach Corporation (NASDAQ: HEAR). The RECON CHAT headsets for Xbox One and PS4™ are the latest entries in Turtle Beach’s family of award-winning gaming audio products, and deliver a host of innovative features and functionality that raise the bar for what gamers should expect from a chat headset.

Not only is the RECON CHAT lightweight and reversible, but it’s a significant upgrade over standard chat headsets, featuring a large 40mm speaker and Turtle Beach’s glasses friendly design inspired by the ELITE PRO ’s ProSpecs™ Glasses Relief System, Turtle Beach’s signature high-sensitivity microphone, and a unique open ear-cup which allows players to hear game audio from their TV or home entertainment system through both ears (in stereo).
