Yep, I’m back with yet another Gaming headset review (my latest headset reviews include Roccat Khan Aimo and the Roccat Khan Pro Gaming headset), and this time I’m reviewing the Turtle Beach Elite Atlas Gaming headset.
Well, right off the bat. The Elite Atlas made a good impression on me from the very second that I saw it in all its glory.
You see, most of the headsets which I have tried and reviewed so far hasn’t exactly been built to handle damage all that well (I still don’t know why so many tech companies keep on making Gaming headsets that are almost 100% made out of plastic…).
What I’m trying to say is that the Elite Atlas won’t break if you drop it on the floor or whatever.
“And why is that?” So you might wonder, it’s because a large part of the Elite Atlas headset is made out of some iron-like material. Furthermore, the parts that aren’t made out of an iron-like material, is made out of a hard plastic material (it’s not the kind of plastic material that breaks easily). In other words, the Elite Atlas headset is pretty rock solid on the “rage quit” or “online rage” front.
As for the sound and microphone quality, I have used Elite Atlas headset while playing and recording games such as “Ion Maiden”, “Stoneshard”, “Leisure Suit Larry: Wet Dreams Don’t Dry “, “FAR Lone Sails”, “POSTAL Redux” and “Worms W.M.D”.
Well, I found the sound quality to be excellent, and the same could also be said about the microphone quality (please keep in mind that I have only used and recorded with the headset for PC).
So, what about comfort then? Well, don’t get me wrong now. I mean, the Elite Atlas is indeed a very comfortable Gaming headset with no doubt.
However, I still feel like there is room for improvement when it comes to comfort, because every now and then I have to take off the headset to give my ears some room to breathe (the headset tends to get rather warm after a while).
Nevertheless, all in all, the Turtle Beach Elite Atlas Gaming headset is still with no doubt a really good and affordable Gaming headset. So if you’re looking for a price worthy multi-format Gaming headset, then the Elite Atlas headset might just be the product for you.

The Turtle Beach Elite Atlas Gaming headset is with no doubt a really good and affordable Gaming headset. However, it does come with a couple of downsides (such as the fact that the headset is pretty light on the bass front). Even so, you still get a lot of value for your money with the Elite Atlas Gaming headset, as you could pick it up for about 100 USD.
