- Wired
The Turtle Beach Stealth 600 delivers superlative sound for both gaming and music
Strong virtual surround sound
Excellent gaming and music sound, Plush ear cup, Easy wireless connectivity
The Turtle Beach Stealth 600 are a good gaming headset with very low latency.
The headset is well constructed, stylish, and comfortable, with plenty of adjustability to suit your needs.
Being able to sync the headset straight to the Xbox without having to have an external transmitter means there is one less thing to break or loose.
I’ll also appreciate that the mic automatically mutes when you flip it up and out of the way.
The Stealth 600 has a pretty decent microphone with other party members confirming I sounded clear.

What reviewers didn't like

Fabric on cups is comfortable, but leather still feels cushier.
- Wired
it doesn't fit very well, its design feels too crowded and its awkward PC interface makes updates and maintenance a chore.
Cheap-feeling build
Limited on headset audio settings
their lack of connection options and software support may cause some listeners to choose a competing model instead.
There isn't even a 3.5mm jack for use on a phone or on a PC, which seems odd considering how much usability a simple jack like that could add.
The only issue you may have with the setup is if you are using an older Xbox One,, the instruction are made for the new Xbox One X.
The 600 has a 15-hour battery life and the 700 lasts for 10 hours. That’s more than enough for any one or two nights of gaming, but the problem is that they don’t really come with a dock or stand that I can keep them in to charge whenever I’m finished with them. And something about plugging in a loose cord into a headset seems really annoying.
