Turtle Beach Elite Pro 2 Review
This is a premium wired headset offering from Turtle Beach that aims to provide the most competitive and intense audio option in their line-up. The Elite Pro 2 + Superamp is a sleek option for audio on your platform of choice whether that’s for general listening or chat functionality. It features a clean white design with magnetic speaker plates that can be swapped out at any time.
This feature provides customization options with an easy process. This is an incredibly comfortable headset that features a cooling setup design. There’s a sleek metal headband that has a soft cushion below it to rest on your head. The ear cushions are super comfy with a cooling gel-infused Aerofit memory foam. These ear cushions are also designed to support glasses if you wear them, so you can focus on what experience you’re having whether that’s with a game or visual treat.
They do a great job of keeping out extra noise which is fantastic for those that want to focus in on their gaming without distractions getting in the way. When it comes to more intense technical elements you’re getting a 500mm Nanoclear speaker with a frequency response of 12Hz-20kHz.
The audio connection on this particular model works great for Xbox One or Windows 10 PC through a 3.5mm and USB connection. There’s also Bluetooth support which was fantastic for splicing in music from my phone. It was really nice to have that option to have gameplay and music intertwined with an easy way to control it.
The microphone is unidirectional and provides a quality voice pick-up for chatting with others. The mic mouth piece is incredibly flexible and dynamic, bend it any way you’d like. It’s also a thick cord, I don’t imagine this would ever break. That similar quality of strength is felt whether you’re touching the top metal band or the cushions that you rest your ears upon. The other wires are also very thick, I imagine unlikely to get damaged. I’ll also note that there’s variable mic monitoring present here. Going back to the Bluetooth setting there’s a phone app for IOS or Android devices that allows for further choices in audio editing. You can personalize settings and even take calls if you need to. This was easy to use, worked well and I didn’t have any issues with the connection.
When it comes to sound options there’s full support for Windows Sonic or Dolby Atmos. The Atmos sound was incredible for the games that did support it. In general, the audio was fantastic whether I was listening to music or the game. You get a true sense of depth within the environment to hear where enemies are coming from. This headset is also great at tournaments, used it at a number of Microsoft Store competitions. I’d like to also note that the Superamp is a lot of fun as it has a bright light system that looks like something Iron Man would use in the Marvel Cinematic Universe films. A neat touch, modern and semi-futuristic at the same time I suppose.
The Turtle Beach Elite Pro 2 headset delivers a premium audio quality that’s excellent for any type of competitive or casual gaming experience you may have. This is a super comfy headset that was easy to use and sounds great. It looks really sleek and the Superamp has a nice futuristic style to it that I appreciated. This was a good option for my gaming whether I wanted music included into the audio streams or if I just wanted to play games and hear that sound.
Its light on my head and it generally looks really professional. There are many essential modern features and everything about this feels of a high quality. It takes that Turtle Beach style and really does elevate the brand to new heights with this entry within their line-up. This is an excellent choice if you’re looking for something that will provide that competitive edge and does so with a bit of style in there.
