From a Turtle Beach press release:
Leading gaming accessory maker Turtle Beach Corporation (Nasdaq: HEAR) today revealed the Recon Cloud Hybrid Controller as its first mobile gaming controller and newest addition to the brand’s burgeoning and highly-acclaimed controller lineup. Designed and engineered by the same team behind Turtle Beach’s award-winning Recon Controller, REACT-R Controller, and VelocityOne Flight products, the Designed for Xbox Recon Cloud Hybrid Controller is for mobile gamers playing on compatible Android devices, on Xbox and PC. It has a massive 30+ hour battery life with quick, play-and-charge capability for all-day gaming when on-the-go. Once mobile gamers return home and connect the Recon Cloud to Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, or Windows PCs with its 10-foot braided USB cable, they’ll have access to a suite of exclusive, game-changing Turtle Beach audio features like Superhuman Hearing, custom audio presets and more for the ultimate audio advantage.
The Recon Cloud Hybrid Controller combines the best of both worlds for mobile gamers on Xbox and PC. Gamers can play longer and in total comfort thanks to the Recon Cloud’s ergonomic shape and cooling grips. The Recon Cloud’s adjustable phone clip securely mounts all compatible Android phones – nearly any sized phone, even in its case – above the controller, and when the clip is detached, it converts into a tabletop stand.
Of course, it wouldn’t be a Turtle Beach controller without the brand’s exclusive built-in signature audio features. When the Recon Cloud is connected to Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, and Windows PCs in wired mode, additional features – including Superhuman Hearing to hear enemy players before they see you, EQ Presets to personalize sound, controls for Game & Chat Balance to find just the right mix, and Mic Monitoring to ensure no more yelling at others – all come into play.
