I've come to fully embrace my sons' enthusiasm for video games. I myself loved the challenge and story lines of early video games and in moderation, consider gaming to be a fun way to unwind. Where else would we pick up the latest dance moves in pop culture?! 

While we enforce a strict policy against playing with strangers, my older guys enjoy "playdates" with their friends and team up to play Fornite on occasion, even when they're not together. It's become another form of socializing, especially for our soon-to-be 10-year old. 

Up until now, they have not been able to speak to or hear the friends they're playing with without the house phone. Needless to say, they were ecstatic to add "gaming audio" to the mix and review a Turtle Beach Recon 70 Gaming Headset

What my boys like most about the Turtle Beach Recon 70 Gaming Headset is that it's lightweight and comfortable to wear. The headsets are super sleek looking and have high-quality speakers and over-ear comfy cushions that allow them to hear sounds crisply and block out outside noise. They rave about the sound quality and say, "It feels like being in the game, not just playing." The high-sensitivity mic enables them to be heard clearly by their friends and can easily be put on mute so they can hear me when I'm yelling that it's dinnertime!

The size of the headset jack, 3.5mm is standard, which means they can use the headphones for any platform they game on as well as non-gaming activities. We can fold them right up and easily pack them for road trips and plane rides as well. 

All this and the price-point, $39.95, make the Turtle Beach Recon 70 Gaming Headset a great entry-level headset for kids and adults alike.

Do you/your kids use a headset while gaming?
