Stealth 350VR Multi-Format Gaming Headset Review
Peter Donnell / 4 years ago
The Turtle Beach Stealth 350VR Headset is available directly from most major retailers in many regions around the world. You can buy it direct from Turtle Beach for $79.99 and it’s available from many UK retailers for £59.99. This is fantastic value for money given the performance on offer.
VR is a nice tagline for this headset, every company is making VR-Something these days and that’s cool, that’s the market trend and I get it. However, I think Turtle Beach may have cornered this headset into a niche, as it’s a great headset on its own, not just for VR users. At £60 it’s not cheap, but its main rivals at that price right now are the Logitech G430, which is a lot bulkier, The HyperX Cloud, which is bigger too and doesn’t pack bass performance anywhere near as good. The two best alternatives are the Corsair VOID and the Cooler Master Masterpulse, both equally great sounding headsets, but both quite a bit bigger and heavier than the 350VR.
Music, movies, gaming, Skype calls, dank meme compilation videos, it doesn’t matter, everything sounds great on this headset. No fuss with EQ and profiles, just set the volume, dial up the bass to where you need it and it sounds great, making it very user-friendly to use. The built-in amp is a huge bonus, giving any audio source you connect a significant audio boost that’s sure to put a smile on your face.
Ergonomics are a big selling point here, as this is by far one of the most comfortable headsets from Turtle Beach, and one of the most comfortable headsets on the market. Much of the comfort comes from the balanced and lightweight design, as well as that luxurious padding on the ear cups, with sits ever so softly on your head. If you’re already feeling burdened by your VR headset, the 350VR isn’t going to add to your concerns. The only real changes here to make this headset more VR friendly are the light and comfortable fit and the notch in the headband padding, otherwise every feature is just as beneficial to any headset, but still welcome features regardless.
- Lightweight and comfortable fit
- Ergonomics suit wearing over VR headset
- On-headset controls
- Built-in power amp and bass adjustment
- 30-hour battery (for built-in amp)
- PC and mobile type cables included
- Detachable microphone
- Adding VR to name may attract VR users, but wrongfully dissuade other consumers
“The Stealth 350VR is super comfortable, lightweight and easy to use, but despite it’s slimmer design, it packs an acoustic punch that can go head-to-head with many bigger and more expensive headsets on the market. Overall, a great sounding and practical headset at a very fair price.”
