The peripheral maker continues to be splintering the headsets by gaming platform, with a Stealth 600 and 700 for Xbox homeowners and choices made particular for PlayStation avid gamers. Actually, the foremost variations are what they’ve been for some time now: colour and connection kind. For the Stealth 600, you will get a headset that matches the colour scheme of both console (or just in white when you don’t really feel like displaying your allegiance). And whereas the PlayStation model depends on a USB wi-fi receiver, the made-for-Xbox headsets can join on to the console or to a PC when you have an Xbox wi-fi adapter plugged in.

Within the case of the Stealth 600 and 700 Gen 2 made for PlayStation, the USB wi-fi adapter permits it to work with Nintendo Change when the console is docked. Although, simply to keep away from confusion, the earlier iteration of Turtle Seaside’s headsets will work simply the identical with the brand new tech. You simply received’t have the helpful USB-C charging and the opposite tweaks it brings.
Talking of, the most important change that can affect how you utilize these headsets is expounded to the controls. The providing is similar (aside from the USB-C port), nevertheless it all has been moved across the fringe of the left ear cup. Visually, the brand new headsets’ button layouts are an enchancment over the earlier iterations, which had buttons sprinkled throughout the ear cup.
However when you’re coming from one in every of Turtle Seaside’s older headsets, it would take some observe to study the up to date association. The microphone continues to be a fold-out affair that routinely mutes when it’s tucked in, nevertheless it now kinds properly into the ear cup design when it’s off, successfully hiding it from view. Additionally concerning the microphone, it nonetheless has the nice monitoring impact when it’s in use.
In case your opinion of the older Stealth headsets was that they weren’t tremendous comfy, my restricted time with the Stealth 600 Gen 2 tells me that your thoughts in all probability received’t be modified. The breathable mesh ear pads really feel nice and the audio high quality is improbable, however the body actually presses arduous towards my head. I admit my noggin could be bigger than most, so your outcomes could range. The Stealth 700 Gen 2 has a metal-reinforced headband, so maybe that one will likely be extra sturdy and extra forgiving to put on for lengthy durations, too.
The brand new Stealth 600 Gen 2 will value $99.99, and the PlayStation version is releasing today, whereas the Xbox-ready model is coming afterward September 20th. The Stealth 700 will likely be costlier at $149.99 and can launch for each platforms on September 20th. That bump in value will get you an all-black design with plush, leather-like ear pads and the power to connect with gadgets through Bluetooth along with your recreation supply, so you may hearken to extra than simply your in-game audio when you play.
