Well, it looks like you may not have to wait in line hoping to beat the rush, as Turtle Beach has already upgraded their hardware in time for the Xbox Series X/S launch!

Turtle Beach Stealth 600 Gen 2
If you’re a regular here, you’ll know that I tested the more expensive Turtle Beach Stealth 700 Gen 2 a couple of weeks ago. It was a tremendous upgrade over the old model, giving us a wireless headset experience worthy of the modern gaming market. If you’ve been here a LONG time, you may even recall my review of the original Stealth 600 almost four years ago! The new one still uses the much-loved 50mm Turtle Beach drivers, but everything else beyond has been given an upgrade. New processing, new microphone, and a massively upgraded design too, which doesn’t happen often in Turtle Beach world.
