Turtle Beach Elite Atlas Aero
Turtle Beach Elite Atlas Aero features
The Elite Atlas Aero runs on the robust Turtle Beach Control Studio software (on PCs, at least. You won’t be able to access all these fancy options for console play). Here you can tweak equalization options, reprogram buttons, toggle surround sound and set up profiles for individual games.
First off, there are a ton of audio options at your disposal in this program. You can adjust options for volume, game/chat balance, mic pickup, 3D sound, equalization settings, macros and more. To detail, every option would take too long; suffice it to say that audiophiles will probably find what they’re looking for, while more casual fans can simply tweak a few settings and hit the ground running.
In fact, I wish there were a few more presets for fans who don’t want to spend too much time setting up their own profiles. While the 3D sound setting has options for movies and music in addition to games, the stereo presets are pretty tame: bass and treble boosts, or a flat profile. It seems almost churlish to ask for more options in a piece of software that’s already jam-packed with them, but I would much rather have an EQ profile designed by a pro than try to construct one from scratch myself.
There’s also the mic, which is crisp and clear: perfect for competitive games, Discord chat rooms, or however else you like to communicate online.
