Turtle Beach Stealth 600 Gen 2 Wireless Headset Review
Peter Donnell / 12 months ago
The Turtle Beach Stealth series is by one one of the biggest sellers of the headset market. There’s a lot of scope in the Stealth range, with some affordable models, right up to their flagships and wireless. However, the sweet spot most people aim for is the Stealth 600. It’s long been one of my most recommended headsets and now they’re back with a new and improved model. I love it when I reviewed it 3+ years ago, when I tested the Xbox One model and the PlayStation 4 model. The new Gen 2 design aims to improve on that and bring it up to speed for 2020 and beyond.
Turtle Beach Stealth 600 Gen 2 Wireless Headset
It’s just as well equipped as the old Stealth 600, with large and powerful drivers, a great quality microphone, and their fantastic glass-friendly design. However, Turtle Beach promises that they’ve tweaked and improved all of the hardware, as well as the overall design to make it better than ever. It’s wireless on PlayStation 4 as well as the docked Nintendo Switch. However, they’re working on the understanding it’ll work on PlayStation 5 based on what Sony has said, but that is pending some further testing. It works on Windows 10 too, although I’m not sure why they don’t list PC on the box though.
