Turtle Beach is releasing new versions of its Stealth 600 and 700 gaming headphones, upgrading to 2017 models with a refined design that moves its buttons to a more convenient location while swapping Micro USB to search lots of USB-C throughout the lineup. .
The peripheral maker is still sharing headphones with the gaming platform, with a Sneak 600 and 700 for Xbox owners and options made specific to PlayStation players. Indeed, the main differences are what they have been for a while now: the color and the type of connection. For the Stealth 600, you can get a headset that matches the color scheme of a keyboard (or just in white if you do not feel like displaying your loyalty). And while the PlayStation version relies on a wireless USB receiver, headphones made for the Xbox can be connected directly to the keyboard or to a PC if you have an Xbox wireless adapter plugged in.
Turtle Beach says its new headphones will work with the PS5 and Xbox Series X, in addition to the current consoles. In the case of the Stealth 600 and 700 Gen 2 made for the PlayStation, the USB wireless adapter allows it to work with the Nintendo Switch when the keyboard is inserted. Although, just to avoid confusion, the previous iteration of Turtle Beach headphones will work just as well with the new technology. You just will not have the usable USB-C charging and other receipts it brings.
Speaking of, the biggest change that will affect the way these headphones are used relates to the controls. The offer is the same (except for the USB-C port), but everything has been moved around the edge of the left ear cup. Visually, the new cassette button layouts are an improvement over previous repetitions, which had buttons sprinkled around the ear cup.
But if you come from one of Turtle Beach’s oldest headphones, you may need practice to learn updated tuning. The microphone is still a remote issue that automatically shuts down when inserted, but now forms beautifully in the ear cup pattern when turned off, effectively hiding it from view. Also in terms of the microphone, it still has excellent monitoring effect when in use.
If your opinion of the older Stealth headphones was that they were not super comfortable, my limited time with the Stealth 600 Gen 2 tells me that your mind will probably not change. The mesh breathable earbuds feel great and the sound quality is fantastic, but the frame really presses hard against my head. I accept that my eye can be bigger than most, so your results may vary. The Stealth 700 Gen 2 has a metal-reinforced headband, so maybe it will be more durable and forgiving to wear for long periods as well.
The new Stealth 600 Gen 2 version will cost $ 99.99, and the PlayStation version is releasing today, while the ready-made Xbox version is coming later on September 20th. Stealth 700 will be more expensive at $ 149.99 and will be released for both platforms on September 20th. This award will give you an all-black design with plush, leather-like clothing, as well as the ability to connect to devices via Bluetooth, in addition to your gaming source, so you can hear more than just audio within your game while you play.
