Turtle Beach Elite Atlas Aero PC Wireless Gaming Headset Review



Elite Atlas Aero Wireless PC Gaming Headset

Are you someone who owns a PC along with other consoles? Do you have a PS4 and an X-box? Well if you do then you need a headset that can work on all three devices. Gaming is best done using good quality headsets. Well then is there a headset that works equally well on all three platforms (PC, PS4, X-box)? To answer simply, yes there is.

There are many audio sources when it comes to gaming. Sure you can use large speakers on full volume to enjoy your games, but using headsets is more feasible and beneficial. Loudspeakers annoy others. With headphones, you can use them on full volume without disturbing others.

Keeping three separate headsets for three different platforms is just not feasible. That’s why you need a headset that can work on all three platforms. Not just any headset but a good sounding, comfortable gaming headset that checks all the necessary boxes.

Now before buying a headset, what qualities do you look for? What qualities or features are most important for you? Well, for some the most important feature may be sound quality as that is the main reason you’re buying a gaming headset. For some, it may be comforting, because you use the headset for longer durations so you require comfort. These are basic reasons but there are more features that matter. An example is a noise-canceling microphone.

While in games, you use the microphone to speak with your teammates. Suppose if you’re in a place with noise, you’ll need a good noise-canceling microphone that blocks out all unwanted noise so that your teammates can only hear your voice. Otherwise, the experience for your teammates becomes very unpleasant.

With all these discussed top tier features and compatibility with PC, PS4 and an X-box, the gaming headset we’re going to review today are Turtle Beach Elite Atlas Aero.
