Now’s your opportunity to level-up your gaming gear with a prize pack worth over $299, including a Turtle Beach Recon 500 Gaming Headset.

In case you haven’t noticed, there’s a hell of a lot of games on the horizon, so before you get stuck into them, you should probably make sure your gear is up to the task.

As luck would have it then, we’re ready to stock up two lucky readers with an epic gaming prize pack that includes the following goodies:

Turtle Beach Recon 500 Gaming Headset (Black)

Utilising Turtle Beach’s extreme audio expertise, the Recon 500 provides an outstanding amount of bang for your buck. That’s largely thanks to the headset’s new 60mm Eclipse Dual Drivers, which handles both high and low frequencies separately. What that breaks down to is a clear sound free of distortion even if things start getting loud.

There’s a lot more to love here, but in our own review, what we perhaps enjoyed most about the Recon 500 was its flexibility. By utilising a 3.5mm jack, unlike many wireless option you can use this headset with pretty much any console you like. That includes the Nintendo Switch, PS5 and Xbox Series X. And because you don’t need batteries you’ll never have to pause!

Turtle Beach Recon Controller (White)

Forget about all those shoddy unofficial controllers you were stuck with in the ’90s, because the Turtle Beach Recon Controller not only feels great, it adds some incredible options that most controllers don’t even think to. You’ll have the ability, for example, to not only connect any pair of 3.5mm headphones (like, say, the Recon 500), but to control your most important sound settings within seconds. A couple of handy buttons on the front of the controller allow you to manage both game and chat volume independently without ever having to duck into any pesky menus. There’s also a ‘Superhuman Hearing’ option which hones in on finer details like footsteps in competitive shooters.

Designed for both Xbox and PC, we were amazed at how much more we enjoyed our gaming time with the Recon in-hand. You will too.

Lizard Skins DSP Controller Grips

What good is a controller unless you can deck it out with a little pizazz? Enter Lizard Skins. While the Recon Controller might already excel with a quality grip of its own, Lizard Skins’ DSP Controller Grips are designed to improve how you handle your PS5 or Xbox Series X controller. The grip texture is optimised for the different touch-points of your fingers, while the polymer feel is unlike any synthetic rubber. That’s not even mentioning the different colour/pattern combos available to suit your own particular style. You’ll nab one Camo Black skin for a PS5 controller and one Camo Black skin for an Xbox controller!
