The greatest champions, of games and sports near and far, will all agree to one tenet: it’s the basics that got them to the top. Hundreds to thousands of hours of endless repetition, honing and refining the skills that define the building blocks of their chosen game. Before becoming the fastest human alive, you’ve got to have immaculate running form. Before consistently banging out consecutive killstreaks, you better learn to effortlessly line up those headshots first.
And so, the Recon 50X. All those extra frills, sure they can be nice. But there’s something to be said for picking up a headset in your hands, plugging it in, and knowing that it’s just going to work. And work well. Game audio? Check. Your friends screaming obscenities at you? Check. You screaming right back at them as your neighbors cower in their bathroom listening in terror? Double check.
So class, go pick up the Recon 50X for Xbox One, and let’s get back to basics.
