Gaming Headphones

7
Posted 20th Jul
Please can someone point me in the right direction! My son bought the turtle beach chat recon headset and was disappointed that he couldn't hear the game music/sounds, after a quick search we found out that it was just for chat.

Can someone let me know if you can get any single ear piece headsets with mics that also play the game music/sounds, his budget is only £15-20.

Thanks

What platform (which console or PC)?

At that price point, they’re all pretty similar so just search on Argos or Amazon for gaming headset and pick one that suits budget.

Regarding those Turtle beach ones, there should still be game audio coming through. Just that there’s only one ear cup. Regardless, they’re not that great anyway so just get some new ones.

Here’s some I just found on. Curry’s for 20 quid:

Or these at game: Turtle Beach Recon 50P

If you can maybe help him out a bit and add another 10-15 to his budget, there are much better options. Hyper X Cloud stinger or Corsair HS35.

The stealth brand which Argos sell are pretty decent for your budget but my boy just purchased hyper x headset from curry’s £30 and said is by far the best he’s had in the last couple of years...paying slightly extra does make a difference to a gaming headset and tend to last longer...the cheaper they are...they tend to not last as long and end up paying out more in the long run replacing them...I definitely think paying out a bit more for them pays off in the long run(y)

In which case are you sure there’s not just a problem with settings?

Input and output needs to be set to headset on controller.

I tried all the settings and we couldn't hear the game music, I've sent them back and we are looking for a replacement pair.

I have an exact same set of those. Although I’ve not used them on Xbox, just on PS4. Never had a problem with game audio coming through. That’s why I thought it might be a settings thing.

They’re one of the better budget monaural headsets. So if the ones you had were
not working, they may just be faulty. Can you order them again?

Or google Xbox one monaural headset. There’s quite a few around that price. Some Hyper X ones too that look good for 20 quid.

I think it's an xbox thing rather than a fault, some setups support game audio, some only provide chat.

I can't remember the details, although I seem to remember it varies depending on which version of the Xbox one you have.
