Weight10.6 ounces
Remappable Buttons2
Mic MonitoringYes
Pro Aim Focus ModeFour levels of sensitivity

This Turtle Beach controller stays comfortable in your hands even during long gaming sessions, thanks to the Cooling Grip handle, letting you play for longer. In addition, the Pro-Aim Focus mode lets you switch between four different levels of sensitivity for when you’re lining up those crucial headshots in shooters like The Finals.

Plugging in a set of headphones unlocks even more features – including their heavily touted Superhuman Hearing sound setting which they say lets you hear game audio details better than ever. Thanks to this feature, you’ll be able to hear exactly where you’re getting shot from and react accordingly. You can also use the top buttons to switch easily between four different audio presets without having to pause the game to delve into menus.

Finally, the two additional buttons on the underside can give you a big advantage – letting you set them to whichever functions you use the most so they’re always in easy reach.

Is this Turtle Beach Recon Controller gamepad deal good value?

With so many offers on during the Spring – and upcoming Easter – sales, it’s hard to know whether an offer genuinely represents good value, so we’ve taken a look at the historical data of this deal via price tracking website CamelCamelCamel to determine just how good value this deal really is.

As you can see from the graph above, this is actually the best price we’ve seen for this controller in over a year – with its last major discount coming all the way back during 2023 easter sales, and that only reduced the price to $45. It has been this low before – but only during the 2022 Black Friday event.

To note, the graph above doesn’t appear to have been updated with the latest data of this particular sale at the time of writing, but we’ve checked and can verify the deal is currently on. What we can see from this graph is that it’s actually pretty rare for the price to come this low – so now’s the opportune time to grab it before the Big Spring Sale comes to an end.
