There is currently hardly a headset on the market that can keep up with the great feature set of the Elite Atlas Aero. We already reported here at the last Gamescom about the product release and the at least very entertaining E-Sports partnership with Astralis. Now we finally get to test the good piece extensively. The Californian developer Turtle Beach promises with his further development of the Atlas Aero a decisive advantage for competitive gaming through technical hearing advantage. As a big CS:GO fan, I’m eager to see what’s in it.
… the Elite Atlas Aero is looking very good. You can see pretty quickly that Turtle Beach has made an effort in the packaging. A chic cover reveals a black cardboard box, in which the headset is finally comfortably embedded in foam. It is folded very tightly, so that the box could even be a bit smaller.
The accessories are enclosed in an accessories box, also black. Included in the scope of delivery are a charging cable, the USB dongle, a 3.5 mm jack cable, a small sticker with the manufacturer’s logo and a quick start guide. The latter clearly explains the respective connections, all control elements as well as the use of the additional features, which we will come back to later.
Not all things are also explained in German, but with the illustrations and a little knowledge of English one gets along well. One shortcoming shows up in the scope of delivery: the headphones don’t yet have the new USB-C standard, which compares to that and increases the charging time.
But so far everything makes a convincing impression. We are curious what the connected headset has to offer.
