Legendary mash-ups duo create new song for launch of the Turtle Beach Recon 500 headset
Featuring samples from multiple gaming scenarios, the track is free to view here
New headset features new designs previously unseen in their category
Thursday, 8 July 2021, Sydney: Australian legends of the mash-up scene Mashd N Kutcher have collaborated with global gaming audio brand Turtle Beach to celebrate the launch of the brand’s new Recon 500 headsets. Sampling all manner of gaming sounds, from the click of a keyboard to the pow-pow and screeches of first-person shooters and racing titles, the MNK boys have mixed up a banger which listeners can find on the Turtle Beach SoundCloud.
The track, WHEN U COLLAB WITH TURTLE BEACH, samples sounds from the world of gaming, including peripheral sounds such as keypresses, headset jacks and some of their favourite games. Clocking in at just over three minutes, MNK leaned into their childhoods to create a retro electronic grunge vibe to give the track a boss battle feel which aims to soothe the itchy trigger fingers of gamers from all walks of life while demonstrating the breadth of aural dynamism available to gamers on a daily basis.
The new Recon 500 headsets from Turtle Beach are an amalgamation of high-end features previously unseen in their category, such as 60mm Eclipse™ Dual Drivers delivering stunning sound and engineered with AccuTune™ wood composite-injection technology for acoustic perfection. The Recon 500s are available now at retail for RRP$129.95. Mashd N Kutcher’s track is free to listen to via the Turtle Beach SoundCloud.
Country Manager for Turtle Beach, Jeremy Cox, says: “At Turtle Beach we’re all about gaming audio, and with the launch of our next-level Recon 500 headsets we wanted to work with Aussie legends Mashd N Kutcher to create something we’d not attempted before: Music.
The boys who brought us lockdown cheers with Get On the Beers absolutely sMashd it out of the park with WHEN U COLLAB WITH TURTLE BEACH and we’re in awe of what they’ve achieved with just a few gaming sounds.”
Matt, one half of Mashd N Kutcher, says: “A huge portion of our audience are gamers, so we’ve relished the chance to create music made from sounds they’d hear every day. WHEN U COLLAB WITH TURTLE BEACH is, for lack of a better word, a banger and listening to it through Recon 500s is a real treat. We’re interested to see how gamers respond to the track, so have a listen and let us know what you think on socials!”
With more than forty years of gaming audio expertise behind the brand, Turtle Beach leads the industry through continuous innovation in both design and manufacturing, and the Recon 500 headset maintains this tradition.
