Just plug it in and go.
As enthusiasts and gamers should know, the difference between entry level audio and "it came in the box" audio is pretty massive. Thus, the Turtle Beach Ear Force Recon 50, which can be plugged into the PS4 controller, the new Xbox One controllers, the Wii U, smartphones, PCs, and so on, is a pretty massive upgrade over the PS4 ear bud or the Xbox One mono headset.
The Ear Force Recon 50 series is a 40mm passive design, which comes in 50, 50X (Xbox), and 50P (PlayStation) variants at $39.95 each. Those 40mm drivers in each ear are the perfect from whatever is lying around upgrade. The Recon 50 has a detachable boom mic, and again, this simple crushes whatever dangle mic, many users might currently be using. Being a passive design, the Recon 50 is very lightweight, and as for usability, it has a in-line Volume and Mic controls. (Order here for the 50, here for the 50P, and here for the 50X.)
EAR FORCE Recon 50 / Recon 50X / Recon 50P Gaming Headsets – The EAR FORCE Recon 50 series gaming headsets are multiplatform compatible for PC and Mac, Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and mobile/tablet devices, and feature a brand new, lightweight over-ear design with 40mm speakers built for great sound and extended comfort. The Recon 50/50X/50P comes with an adjustable and removable high-sensitivity boom mic and convenient in-line controls for Volume and Mic Muting. The Recon 50 also includes a PC-Y adapter3 for universal PC, Mac and mobile/tablet compatibility. The EAR FORCE Recon 50, EAR FORCE Recon 50X and EAR FORCE Recon 50P gaming headsets launch on September 25th for a MSRP of $39.95.
(For older Xbox One controllers, a Xbox One Wireless Audio Adapter is required.)
