Turtle Beach is expanding their wireless gaming headset lineup for the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 with a pair of new headsets: the Stealth 600 and Stealth 700. The Stealth 600 and 700 wireless headsets both offer Turtle Beach’s signature sound with their 50mm Neodymium magnet speakers and over 10 hours of battery life between charges. Other Turtle Beach features like the flip-up omnidirectional microphone, glasses-friendly ProSpecs design, Superhuman Hearing tech, independent game and chat control, mic monitoring and foam cushioning in the headband and ear cushions are also present in both models.
The Stealth 700 takes things up a notch with synthetic and bonded leather headband, earpad, and ear cushions, as well as includes active noise cancellation, Dynamic Chat Boost, and Bluetooth connectivity for use with the Turtle Beach Audio Hub app. In addition, the Stealth 600 and 700 for the Xbox One are one of the first wireless gaming headsets that connect directly to your Xbox One without the need for a dongle. Both headsets use the same Xbox Wireless functionality that your Xbox One controller does. I have to admit, it’s about time!
