Turtle Beach is back with the Elite Pro’s, their latest gaming headset for PS4, Xbox One, PC and even mobile.

Right away, the first thing I noticed is that the Elite Pro headset feels like a very well built piece of kit, but don’t worry, they aren’t heavy. If fact, these bad boys are very light and comfortable to wear. They also look the part with some subtle hints of orange.

The Elite Pro headset is equipped with a huge range of features. First off the Elite Pro’s features a memory foam band to make for a comfortable fit. The ear pads are also constructed from a thick gel infused memory foam. There are multiple sliders and customisation options at your disposal giving you the ability to fine-tune it for maximum comfort, so if you have a oddly shaped head like me, the Elite Pro’s will work wonders for you. They even have a feature for those that wear glasses, the Elite Pro’s comes with a feature called “ProSpecs”, a glasses relief system. This is where the ear cups have a small groove along the inside so that the headset sits snug over your glasses while your playing.

The headset can be connected to your PS4/Xbox One controller via a single 3.5mm jack. This one connection delivers both the downstream audio and upstream mic input. The only downside to this is if you're using the older type of Xbox One controller that doesn’t already have the 3.5mm jack in the bottom, you’re going to need an Xbox One chat adapter. The upside to to them using a standard 3.5mm jack is that you can also use the headset on your mobile phone or tablet.

The Turtle Beach Elite Pro’s are packed with a 50mm “nanoclear” speaker that sits behind the earcups. Out of the box, the headset come with a standard detachable boom microphone. There is a tournament grade noise-cancelling microphone you can purchase. This optional microphone does make a big difference if you’re someone that plays in a loud or crowded area.

So, how do they sound? Well, seeing Turtle Beach are a company that have a long history of releasing some amazing sounding headsets, the Elite Pro’s are no exception. These are some really nice headphones. In fact, i’ve used nothing but Astro’s for as long as I can remember and I must say, these Elite Pro’s might just be my new replacement headset.

Turtle Beach have done an outstanding job with the Elite Pro’s. They are super comfy, light weight and the fact they use a standard 3.5mm connection, I can use these on any console or even take them with me on my commute to work chilling out to some tunes on my phone.
