Turtle Beach Atlas Edge Review

A different sort of accessory, or well converter as to say is present with the Turtle Beach Atlas Edge. This was included with a recent headset I reviewed from the company as an extra. It’s essentially an adaptor of sorts that takes 3.5mm and converts it to USB.

It also goes beyond that simplistic note I make, as it takes stereo audio and converts it to Waves NX 3D audio which is what the company has included within their recent PC wireless headset. Which is a great headset by the way. That aside, this provides a straight forward concept.

I’ve used it recently for some audio capture on headsets for reviews, and listening to for which is sounds quite great. If this is something you’re needing, it works well for the proposed functionality.


You get a standard end conversion port that is a USB plug-in. This area is thicker than usual, but not something that sticks out too much if your USB ports are close together. The cord itself is rather thick, and features a nice length to it.

It works well as something to connect your 3.5mm headsets to, or even just get better length out of them. There is a boost with that audio feature that I’ve noted prior and it sounds solid. Not a whole lot to go over with this one, it’s quite straight forward. They hit the right notes for length, quality and design on it.

The Conclusion

The Turtle Beach Atlas Edge is a great conversion option bringing in the company’s signature Waves NX 3D audio feature. This acts as a good way to convert 3.5mm to USB, and it functions efficiently.

I didn’t think I’d have a particular use for it, but it did come in handy recently, thus the review of course. It features a good length of cord, a quality thickness and its sleek enough. It servers its intended purpose, and if this is something you’re after it works well in that regard.
