So the cheapest of the new Turtle Beach Atlas range, Compared to the bigger Atlas three and the Atlas Elite the Atlas One seems inferior. This will depend on your use for them and desire for the best quality sound.
Or those of you that have already read my Atlas Elite and Three review you might remember the audio output difference I noticed due to the Amplified Audio, well with only 40mm Speakers and no amplified audio the Atlas One actually performs admirably by comparison. There is a noticeable lower audio output however it still delivers a quality sound at a very reasonable output, you can even say this are more suitable for younger children due to this rather than louder more expensive headphones. The other plus to this is there is no distortion at low Hz even at max volume.
Looks wise Turtle Beach have done well here as the carbon fiber style ear cups look like they should be on a £80 of headphones not £40 and this continues over the headband making them very stylish for the price.
The rigid mic (similar to the Atlas Three) is a little shorter but in testing seems to have no performance difference to the Atlas Three.
It’s the comfort point that’s interesting for me as the size of the cushion on the headband is quite small, however despite using them for a few hours I can’t fault them for comfort during this time.
The adjustable headband and directional movement of the earcups adjusted well to my head size and shape and whilst not quite as comfortable as it’s other new counterparts for the value your getting this really isn’t an issue for me.
There is no need for charging these either so a plus as they are as simple as plug and play (some settings may be required on some consoles initially)
Coming in at £39.99 on release date for the quality of sound and comfort they deliver this is an ideal starter headset that delivers on all fronts with no real cons as the features on premium headsets you don’t expect to get for £40
