    I purchased these gaming headphones for my husband, as a Father's Day gift, and he loves them. Great quality and sound proof!

    Works Great with PS5

    I was looking for a new headset for my PS5, and the Turtle Beach Stealth 600 Gaming headset checked most of the boxes. While there are several things I like about this headset, it does fall short in a few areas for me. First Impressions: The build feels solid without being too heavy. I like that the microphone folds back into the headset, which is nice when you don't want to use the mic but still want to use the headset to game. The instructions were easy to understand and made it simple to figure out how to connect to my PS5. You will need to toggle the switch on the dongle before plugging it in because it is set to Xbox by default. Pros: Connection: Easy as plugging in the USB dongle and turning on the headset. My PS5 recognized it right away, and I was ready to game in a matter of seconds. After using it for about 5-6 hours so far, I have not noticed any connection issues, and my friends online say the quality on their end sounds great. Battery Life: The Stealth 600 boasts a whopping 80 hours, which is awesome. I haven't used it long enough to run through a full battery cycle, but I will never complain about long battery life—especially since I always forget to plug my headsets in. Controls: All of your controls are located on the left ear cup. Each button and wheel is placed in easy-to-reach areas, and everything is large enough to fine-tune your settings on the fly without having to take the headset off. I really liked the idea of the Game/Chat Mix feature, but unfortunately, this does not work when using it with the PS5. You will still need to adjust that in the system menu. Comfort: This will be a pro and a con. I have a larger head, and even at the max adjustable settings, my head feels like it's being squeezed when I am playing for several hours. That being said, it's very comfortable for the first 45 minutes or so. I hope that it will break in as I use it more. I'm certain that if you have an average-sized head, you won't have any issues with comfort. Cons: Superhuman Hearing: Not being able to hear ambient noise is probably the biggest issue I have with the Stealth 600. From the moment you put the headset on, you immediately lose 70% of the ambient noise around you, even when the headset is powered off. Personally, I'm not a huge fan of noise cancellation when gaming with friends because it makes it hard for me to hear myself talk, and I find that very distracting. I was hoping that the Superhuman hearing mode suggested that this headset had some form of transparency mode, but it's actually to help you hear enemy footsteps better. When testing, I didn't notice any considerable difference and would suggest they add a transparency option instead. Comfort: As mentioned above, so far, the headset is really only usable for an hour or so on my head. I hope this will change as it breaks in, but this is a significant con for me. Conclusion: The Turtle Beach Stealth 600 is a great option. It has all of the features you could possibly want and even works cross-platform. I'm very happy with this setup and hope it gets more comfortable as I use it.

    Battery Life + Compatibility, Good Enough Audio

    I needed a wireless headset that would work with both an Xbox and PC. I’ve used Turtle Beach headphones years ago during the xbox 360 years, so I picked up the Turtle Beach Stealth 600. The added connectivity to other devices and long battery life made it stand out. Pros: - Compatibility with different devices and platforms. - 80 Hour Battery Life. - Lightweight. - Ear Cushion fabic. Cons: - Included instructions missing some steps. - Sound quality is only okay. Setup: Even though I picked this up to use with the Xbox and PC, I tried out the phone pairing method. Sad to say, it took me a few mins to realize you had to switch the headphones into Bluetooth mode to pair them. The included instructions did not outline that the headphones needed to switch modes before you could pair using bluetooth. So, if you are wondering why, you cannot find the headphones from a Bluetooth device, try switching the mode to when you hear a “BlueTooth” audio que. This was mostly my fault, as I was pressing buttons when I turned the headset on and when putting them on for the first time. Otherwise, once I had the right mode, connecting was simple. You will need to download the Swarm II app on your phone or install it on your PC/console. For mobile devices, open the app, power on the headphones, and add the device. Then you can access settings such as additional features, mentioned below. If on a PC or Console, make sure the dongle is set to the right mode: USB for PC or XBOX/PS for Console. Plug in the dongle, open the App, and turn on the Stealth 600’s. Then it is about the same regardless of platform. The compatibility of this headset is a huge pro, especially for those with multiple systems or devices. The Swarm II app is available on all platforms, I found the PC version to be the easiest to navigate and connect too. The App provides additional settings to control the volumes, chat mix as there is a game and chat channel, and controls for the Microphone sensitivity and monitoring. The EQ Controls allow you to select pre-sets or make custom EQs, and switch between them on the fly by pressing the “Mode” button. Then you can customize the mapped button functions for the “Mode” and “Chat Mix” scroll wheel. There are also settings for SuperHuman hearing, a signature Turtle Beach mode that helps focus in on specific sounds while gaming like footsteps or shots. Comfort: At only 0.7 lbs, the Stealth 600 Gen 3 are lightweight, and fit well on the head. The headband provides the clamping force for the headset, which wasn’t too much for me and kept them in place on my head, but for those with bigger heads I could see the pressure to be uncomfortable after a while. Luckily, Turtle Beach opted for using an athletic weave fabric for the ear cushions which a breathable and comfortable against the ear over long periods of use. Controls: All buttons are located on the Left earcup, along with the Microphone boom. The flip up to Mute feature is extremely useful on a gaming headset, I’ve had it on many of my work microphones, but this is one of my first gaming headsets with it. From the button up of the earcup is the Power, Mode, USB-C Port, Bluetooth, Quickswitch buttons. The Bluetooth button is a multifunction button used when connected to mobile devices to answer/end calls and control media playback. There are two scroll wheels on the back of the earcup, the bottom one controls the Channel Mix for console or Mic Monitoring for PC, or custom function you select. The top wheel controls the Master Volume. Each wheel has a different tactile feel to make it easy to distinguish between, BUT I still dislike the default functions of the two wheels. I wish I could swap the functions, because I use the Channel mix less than master volume, but my thumb lands on the channel mix every time. It would be nice to be able to customize more than 2 buttons and with other default functions. Performance: The 80-hour battery life is truly massive. I’ve not put in enough hours thus far to fully drain the battery, I’ve only charged it once so far and gotten in at least 40 hours of use over the long weekend and the battery status is at 54%! No need to worry about running out of power in the middle of a long gaming session. The Audio quality is unfortunately only average, even adjusting the EQ settings only helps so much. The sound is clear and crisp, great for hearing all the noises during a firefight or boss battle, but there is no depth or richness to the sound. This is okay for playing video games, but you will notice during the cutscenes or with music, there is just something missing. I got this headset for the ability to play and chat, which it does good with what it has. The Microphone quality is also good, but not great. The settings allow you to tweak the sensitivity and noise gate, and the monitoring allows you to hear yourself to help balance the sound while speaking. But the Microphone sounds tinny on the other end of the calls, this is fine for game chat as the microphone is clear, but for recording or streaming this will stand out in a bad way. The EQ does help bring out your voice more, but the tinny sound is still present. Conclusion: I’m really enjoying the Turtle Beach Stealth 600 Gen 3’s, the long battery life keeps them ready to go, the multiplatform compatibility allows for use across all the devices, and they’re comfortable to keep on the head for long periods of time. They’re doing everything I wanted them to, without me disliking anything enough to stop using them. That’s worth a recommendation from me. I’d recommend these to anyone who has multiple gaming platforms and who likes to play and chat over concerns for audio quality. These have a good balance of features, quality, and performance for the price point, that makes them a solid option.

    Sneaky good headsets from Turtle Beach

    Turtle Beach takes us back to a time when wireless gaming headsets sounded great, felt great, worked as expected and most importantly, were affordably priced. Nowadays, it seems impossible to find a decent set of wireless gaming headsets for less than a hundred but the Stealth 600 (v3) hits that mark and punches well above its weight at this price point. First let me cover what I feel is the most impressive features of this modestly priced gaming headset. The sound is LOUD. It’s maybe not the most accurate sounding headset, but it handles gaming sounds perfectly with tons of bass, highlighted vocals, and soaring treble notes. The sound stage is also “airy” and does not sound muffled at all. The other feature that really stood out to me was the Bluetooth connectivity and fast-switching between inputs. While this is not advertised as a Bluetooth “Multi-Point” headset, the feature actually works! Meaning you can connect multiple Bluetooth devices AT THE SAME TIME. The only minor thing to note is the switching between sources is not super intelligent and if both sources are playing, only one will play and the sounds are not muxed together. In order to pair a second device, you must disconnect the first device (not forget) and then put the Stealth into pairing mode by changing input to BT and hold the BT button to put it into pairing mode. The LED light is excellent at visualizing which input and what mode the headset is in, and you get the audio notification as well. So change to BT which turns the LED blue, then hold the BT button and it flashes quickly in blue. Then go to your 2nd device and search for devices to pair with and the Stealth 600 should show up. After pairing a 2nd device, you can then connect the first device simultaneously. Play from one source, stop it. Wait a few seconds, play from second source and audio will stream from second source. Brilliant. I was able to connect to my PC and my iPhone 15 Pro Max simultaneously. Great functionality for those who work from home or want to connect and use on a work laptop, and these headsets while geared towards gamers look good enough to use for work without blinding those on your Teams call. These headsets also have a RF USB dongle that works perfectly with PC, and if you get a call and the headset is paired to your phone via BT, you can use the fast input switching to switch to BT, take the call, then hang up and input goes back to RF. The buttons on the left side work well but they are kinda hard to differentiate when you can’t see them, but over time I should get used to them. The BT key also doubles as a media pause/start/hangup button and there is the quick swap button as mentioned. There’s a volume roller that works well and another roller that can be programmed. The wheels have different treads that give you touch cues to tell them apart. Microphone folds up and down and isn’t super flimsily or adjustable which I like. Sound is decent but not something you will want to do voiceovers with. Overall I really just love the usability of this headset, it’s just fast and responsive and does everything you would expect from a much more expensive BT headset, but it also has the added functionality of RF to any device that has a USB-A port. It powers on fast, detects inputs fast, switches between devices fast. And it sounds great! Build quality is also excellent for such a reasonably priced headset. Nothing cheap or flimsily, memory foam, lay flat ear cups, closed circumaural ear cups but breathable athletic fabric so you don’t feel like you’re in a tunnel and sweating. Great headphones from a great brand!

    The expansion of gaming is an undeniable reality, as well as the number of products available for this purpose. One of the most required gaming accessories besides controllers, keyboards and mice, are headphones. I have had the fortune to try different types of gaming headsets, some very good, others not so good, different brands and among them Turtle Beach, which I must admit that over time have improved their product line. I have tried other generations of the Stealth series and this time it has met my expectations, although it is not a perfect product, it does well. In the box you get the headphones, a USB wireless transmitter, a charging cable USB-A to USB-C and a quick start guide. There are two ways to connect the headphones to the different compatible devices. First, you can connect via bluetooth through your phone's bluetooth settings, you can also install an app to access different settings of the headphones, although without installing the app the headphones work without any problem. The other way is with the usb wireless transmitter, this can be connected to consoles and pc. It is important to read the quick start guide as it contains instructions on how to connect the headphones to these different types of devices. The headphones have a set of buttons on the bottom of the left earphone. Power button, bluetooth, “mode button” (used to change the eq preset) and one more to change the connection type. This last one seems great to me because just by pressing a button you can switch from bluetooth to wireless and vice versa, when I finish playing on pc and proceed to do another activity, I just press the button to change the connection and then the headphones connect to my phone (previously paired in bluetooth settings), I find it very convenient. It also has two wheels one is for the master audio volume and one for game/chat mix. The design looks good, although I think they are a little big for my taste. However, one thing that is undeniable is comfort, so the design serves this purpose and I am happy with it. The pads are soft and do not irritate the skin, in my case I have not had any problem in this regard. The adjustable headband is comfortable as well. That the microphone is retractable is already a Turtle Beach signature, I like it. In performance this device is on par with other mid-range gaming headsets, which makes it, in my opinion, a balanced product in its cost/benefit ratio. The sound is very good, although it could be better. The size of the drivers allows you to feel a deeper sound quality. Despite not being headphones with active noise cancellation, it does isolate the outside sound to a good extent. The equalizer presets are fine, although for me only two of them convinced me more, as there are times when the increase of certain frequencies in a couple of presets makes the mids and sometimes the highs are distorted a little, nothing serious but I prefer the Signature Sound preset. In different games the sound delivered by the headphones is quite good, I can play without any inconvenience and get the same results as with my wired headphones. The microphone is loud and clear, it can also be configured from the Swarm II app and this gives it a plus. One thing that makes these gaming headsets stand out to me the most is the battery. I have been using the headphones for days and the battery continues to hold enough charge to keep using them for gaming and playing content on my other devices. This is one of their strongest points and what makes me conclude that, without a doubt, these are headphones that are worth the price and if they had at some point a discount, even better. If you are looking for a good pair of gaming headphones that you can use with your console, pc, phone, tablet, at a reasonable price, I can definitely recommend these Turtle Beach Stealth 600 headphones.

    Top Level Immersive Audio At A Good Price Point

    I was needing a good headset for my Xbox One X. I was looking forward to Turtle Beach's Stealth 600 covering that need. I play role playing games as well as first person shooters, so I needed something that would provide immersive audio for the role playing games and something that would allow me to take part in team chat in the first person shooters. The Stealth 600 more than covered that need. Construction The headset is of good construction. The headband padding is soft and comfortable. The padding for the ear pieces are also made of thick padding and are comfortable to wear for hours of gaming. The weight of the headset I found to be reasonable and the weight didn't cause me to feel fatigued after many hours of gaming. Each earpiece can swivel left or right and can be extended to accommodate anyone. The mic is easy to access to move down when I need to use it and move it up when I don't. When in the up position, it fits in a recessed part of the headset, so it ends up being out of my way and is seamless with the headset, so I don't accidentally move it if I touch the headset during gameplay. Controls and Buttons The controls and mic are on the left side of the headset. There are two dials, one for global volume and one that allows me to adjust the volume mixture of game audio and chat audio. Each dial had it's own texture which made it easy for me to identify each by touch while wearing the headset. There are also 4 buttons. One powers on the headset and also has a light which indicates charge status when charging and it also indicates whether or not it is in standard wireless mode or Bluetooth mode. It comes with a USB-A dongle that is plugged into the XBox. If I am going to use the headset with a PC, then I can connect it via Bluetooth or flip a switch on the dongle to use standard wireless. I prefer to keep the dongle in the Xbox for use with standard wireless and just switch to Bluetooth for use with my PC. There is also a button on the headset for switching from Bluetooth to standard wireless. There is another button on the headset for switching between EQ modes. The EQ and mic can be setup through the Swarm app. And lastly, There is a USB-C charge port on the left earpiece. Charging doesn't take too long and the charge last a while. Audio Quality The quality of audio from the Stealth 600 is incredible. I had been playing Diablo IV with the audio coming through my TV speakers prior to getting the Stealth 600. Role playing game developers put a lot of time, money, and effort into their sound tracks, so if you aren't hearing the audio from a good set of speakers, you are missing out. I immediately noticed a tremendous difference with the Stealth 600. The level of immersion was top level. So much that I don't want to play the game without the headset going forward. I have to hand it to Turtle Beach on the quality of audio from the headset. Final Thoughts I really like the design of the Stealth 600. It would have been nice to see a headset stand included with it, but that isn't that big of a deal to me. At first I didn't like the idea of having to use a dongle on my Xbox, but I realized that it being plugged into the USB port on the back it was out of the way and out of sight so I didn't really think about it as it was out of site out of mind. The level of immersive audio I get from the Stealth 600 is top notch. I can't say enough about that. Overall, I very happy with the headset and, at this price point, I think a lot of gamers will be happy with them.

    A solid gaming headset

    I'm always a bit excited when I get a new Turtle Beach headset. I have had the previous generation of the Stealth and since it was one of the best gaming headsets I've owned (in this price range), I decided to replace it with the new version. So, upgrade or downgrade? Let's start with what's in the box. You get the headset, a USB dongle and one of the shortest charging cables I've ever seen. There's a quickstart guide which covers all functions fairly well and that's it. First contact with the headset was very positive as it feels sturdy and has some weight, which is always a good sign. Buttons and dials are all easily accessible for quick modifications. Getting used to their placement on the headset doesn't take long either. As with previous generations, the mic flips down from the left side and disappears back into the body when flipped back up. That's engineering done right. The wear is comfortable with plenty of foam padding. On the technical side, you get a modern headset with plenty of options to connect it to many different devices. Those include Xbox (all series and previous One/X), PC, Switch and Android. This is made possible by switching from RF to Bluetooth and vice versa, which makes this headset extremely versatile. When used with a compatible device and the dongle, there is virtually no installation. It's truly plug and play in most cases. The Bluetooth might take a couple more steps, but it works fine after that. The initial charging took about 2 hours. The specifications claim 80 hours of gaming on a single charge. I was unable to verify that, but even after several hours of gaming, the Stealth was still almost fully charged. One thing I will mention is that this headset does not have a 3.5mm audio jack connector. I know that most people like to cut the cords, but I do like to connect my headsets to an external DAC. It's not a deal-breaker but it still bugs me. The sound quality for a headset such as this one is more than respectable. It contains a built-in DAC which can improve the audio quality and it allows you to fine tune the headset to your liking. The box mentions the use of AI noise cancellation technology. It's hard to tell whether it's done using hardware or software, but it does do a decent job at reducing ambient noise. One thing that stood out during a Call of Duty match was how well and accurately it renders footsteps and other subtle sounds, which is somewhat crucial in a multiplayer game. You can hear noises that probably would escape you if you'd use a different headset. Music sounds good (nothing to write home about, but good enough) and voice chat is excellent. Turtle Beach played it safe with this refresh by upgrading an already good gaming headset instead of trying to reinvent the wheel. It is extremely easy to use, has a very good sound and it doesn't break the bank. And considering that the previous model I own still works, I think the Stealth 600 is a safe bet.

    This headset just upped my gaming to the next level. I tried them on the Xbox, Nintendo Switch, PC, and iPhone and was pleased with the ease of connection across all platforms. Additionally, I found that they are truly designed with gaming in mind. First off, set up is so easy. To connect it to the Xbox or PC, all I have to do is toggle between the Xbox or USB option on the wireless transmitter and plug it in. With the PC, I had to go to my sound settings and select that it uses the Stealth headset. Bluetooth setup is just as easy. With the phone and Nintendo Switch, I just switched the headset to Bluetooth mode and activated pairing mode. It connected in seconds, and I was good to go. It is ideal to get the Swarm II app because it provides the option to update the headset to the latest available firmware. It also provides customization features and provides battery level information. The build and materials are of high quality. It is sturdy and the buttons and dials are well-placed. It is incredibly comfortable considering its weight. I actually forget I am wearing it. To top it off, they provide really good noise cancelation. The headphones can be turned around individually, which helps keep them flat against my clavicle when I take them off and have them around my neck. The sound is the best part. It is akin to having surround sound and it allows for spatial awareness. Playing Battlefield, I was able to hear footsteps clear and crisply, along with the direction they were coming from. The lower bass sounds of explosions and of the dramatic music intensify the gaming experience. I did try it with music on my phone too, and under the right preset the sound is amazing. It even provides a better experience with my Nintendo Switch. I hear sounds and music that I had not heard before, even when using my regular headphones. With all this in mind, I can tell that Turtle Beach really focused on elevating the sounds that are prevalent in gaming beyond all other types. The drop-down mic is another great addition. The mic will mute and unmute according to its position and the way it tucks in is quite low profile it almost seems to disappear. It does not take in too much ambient noises, my mouse and typing clicks are quite muted. One thing I noticed initially is the my voice came out sounding very low and far away. I was able to fix this using the mic settings on the app though. I believe these headsets are well worth the price. They provide great sound, are well-made, comfortable, and they are designed with gaming in mind.

    Being a long-time owner of the Stealth Gen 2 headset, I wondered how much of an improvement the Gen 3 would bring. Spoiler alert: It is certainly worth the update! First, let's talk about looks. Now they appear a bit less “gamery” and more on the sleek side. The matte-black finish looks classier, and although they are a bit bulky, I could even wear them during business online meetings. The build-quality is still good, despite being mostly plastic. My old headset has survived several years (I do take care of them very well). So, I expect the same from these. While the headphones are comfortable for the most part, I did feel that the clamping force was a bit strong, which is great for keeping the headset on my head, but after a long gaming session, my upper jaw did get a little sore. The good news is that the ear pads are super soft and breathable, so my ears never got too hot or sweaty. Also, the pads passed the glasses test quite nicely. The controls are tactile and easy to find. I appreciate the wheel rocker volume and chat controls rather than touch controls. For connectivity, these headphones have everything covered. We’re talking about Xbox, PS5, PC, and even mobile. I have all these devices and I was able to hook it up with no issues via the 2.4Ghz dongle or Bluetooth 5.3. There is a convenient button to switch between modes. The mic quality is decent. It does not beat a dedicated mic, but I was heard clearly and ambient noise (especially keystrokes), were kept to a minimum. I have always liked the mic’s flip-to-mute feature rather than a mute button. The dongle goes red when muted, which is pretty nifty. The battery life is quite impressive as always. It’s been a few days of heavy use and I still have more than 50% juice left. There is no real improvement on the sound signature. However, this is a good thing as the 50mm drivers deliver the same full, energetic audio. At the default setting, the bass is punchy and there is plenty of that subwoofer feel. The midrange is engaging and the treble soars high without being harsh or sibilant. Just in case, there are four EQs to choose from at the press of a button. There’s great channel separation and imaging, which is great when playing FPS. There is a “super hearing” mode that I really was not impressed with, since it just enhances treble to make certain sounds be heard more clearly. The companion Swarm II Desktop & Mobile App provides a robust set of customizations. From button actions, mappable wheel functions, and a full 10-band EQ, you can set up the headset to your full preference. As I alluded at the beginning, I am impressed with the Gen 3s. Not only do they look better in my opinion, but they also provide more functionality and versatility this time around, without sacrificing sound and communication quality –certainly worth the price.

    Excellent wireless gaming headset for PC/Console

    The Turtle Beach Stealth 600 Wireless Gaming Headset is a versatile and high-performing option for gamers across various platforms, including Xbox Series X|S, PC, PS5, and PS4. This headset combines excellent audio quality, comfortable design, and reliable wireless connectivity to enhance your gaming experience. The Stealth 600 features a sleek and modern design that fits comfortably over the ears. The large, memory foam ear cushions and adjustable headband ensure a snug fit, even during extended gaming sessions. The headset is relatively lightweight, reducing the strain on your head and neck, making it suitable for long hours of use. One thing I was particularly impressed with is that the headset didn’t make my ears feel warm. That has always been my biggest complaint with over the ear headsets, and surprisingly this headset didn’t feel that hot on my ears even after 2 hours of gaming. I also wish the headband could extend just a bit further as I have a large head and it felt like a little bit more extension would have made the fit perfect. One of the standout features of the Stealth 600 is its impressive audio quality. The headset is equipped with powerful 50mm speakers that deliver crisp highs and deep, immersive bass. There is a convenient volume scroll wheel on the left side to quickly adjust volume. The flip-to-mute microphone is conveniently placed and easy to use, providing clear communication with teammates. There is also a feature called “superhuman hearing”. This feature amplifies subtle game sounds like enemy footsteps and weapon reloads, giving you a tactical advantage. The drawback with this feature is that it makes it hard to hear your friends if you’re in the same room; I wish there was a transparency mode. The wireless connectivity of the Stealth 600 is robust and reliable. It uses a USB 2.4 GHz transmitter to connect to your console or PC, offering a stable connection with minimal latency. The headset has a range of up to 30 feet, allowing you to move around your gaming space without losing connection. The headset also supports Bluetooth wireless, but in my experience the 2.4 Ghz connection is much more stable. The battery life is very impressive, offering a whopping 80 hours of gaming on a single charge, ensuring you won't be interrupted in the middle of a crucial gaming session. The Turtle Beach Stealth 600 Wireless Gaming Headset is a fantastic option for gamers looking for a high-quality, comfortable, and feature-rich headset. Its excellent audio performance, reliable wireless connectivity, and multi-platform compatibility make it a standout choice.

    First, these are very good headphones, with a few negatives along the way... They appeal to me because are multi-platform headphones, and I do games on PC. They have the ability to connect via Bluetooth, or RF with the dongle, and the connection can be switched quickly with the “Quick Switch Button”. The mic is muted by simply flipping up the mic arm. When these arrived, I fully charged and began setting up. Included is an X Box / USB dongle, a USB charging cable, and a quick start guide. As I went through the set up process, I did encounter some difficulty. I found setting up for PC was not as straight forward as might seem. Nothing was working, and the first app I was guided to download was incorrect. Did a little more research, downloaded the correct app for Stealth 600 – Gen 3 (which is called Swarm II) and got things going. The construction of these is excellent. Thick foam headband pad, ear cups that swivel and lay flat, and nice woven cover on ear pads. However, when wearing, I found the clamping pressure a bit heavy. And the ear pads, although resilient, were just a little too thin. I found my ear lightly touching the inside fabric cover. The controls are on the left side of the headphones, with two volume controls. One is “master” volume, and the other is a game / chat mix level. These two controls are easy to use and work well. There are four other tactile switches that are not easily felt or used. I had to sometimes remove the headphones to be sure which switch I was using. As to sound quality. With the 50MM drivers and 20 – 20Khz response, one can expect powerful lows, and these do not disappoint. I found the mids and highs were very respectable also. Coupled with the built in EQ, gaming will certainly take on a very realistic sound stage. Even though the main intent is toward a gaming headphone, I also tried these on music and movie sound tracks. And I was impressed – these do a fine job, and can certainly be used as an “all around” set of headphones. I recommend, although I did take one star due to the set up, switches, and slightly thin ear pads.....

      Hello! We are happy to see that you're enjoying your new Turtle Beach Stealth 600 Gen 3 Headset, and we appreciate the feedback about your experience so far! Due to the wide variations in head/ear sizes and shapes, it's not possible to design a one-size-fits-all headset that will fit absolutely 100% of all users. However, we consistently provide a comfortable fit for the overwhelming majority of our customers. Please bear in mind that your headset will break in over time, which should result in a better fit after you've used it for a while. With that being said, if you have any questions or concerns, please reach out directly to our dedicated Support Team so they can lend a hand. They’re always happy to help and can be reached right from the support section of the Turtle Beach website. Best Regards! TurtleBeach

    To say I've owned a TON of headsets over the years would be a dramatic understatement. Headsets at all price points and capabilities, wired and wireless, you name it, I've had them, each have served their purpose and are either still in use or have been retired for one reason or another. Interestingly, Turtle Beach is not a brand I've had a lot of experience with, so it was good to try these out. Packaging: Fairly vanilla packaging, the headphones are wrapped in a plastic sheath inside the cardboard box with the USB adapter and charging cable. Nothing special here but it gets the job done. Fit and finish: When you first take them out, they feel solid in your hands which is a good thing, but strangely when you put them on they feel a little... cheap, that said they are not super expensive, so that may be why. It's not so bad that I would subtract a star, and honestly, they do feel solid in the hand, so I dont feel like they will fall apart. I'm not entirely sure why this is the case, although I will say that the ear cups do a pretty good job as isolating the sound, and the swing down mic has smooth action and disappears well into the side. The ear cups feel like they may be some sort of memory foam which likely helps with the sound isolation as they mold to your body. Sound: Now the important part. The sound is quite good, no they may not measure up to premium headphones that cost 2-3x as much, but they also dont cost 2-3x as much, that said they do sound great. The response from all levels is good, although I'll say that they do a better job in gaming than they do in music, but that's their target, so at least they've done a good job with that. The USB dongle works with XBox and PC, while they also have bluetooth to work with basically every other platform. Again, their target is gaming, and the battery life is great, so there's no qualms here. Bottom line: If you're in the market for good gaming headphones or want to gift them to a gamer in your life, they are a very solid option without breaking the bank. I easily recommend them.

    Turtle Beach upped their game with this headset. For the price, it has a nice, simplified design that feels more current and premium than their prior models that I’ve owned. It’s also a lot more straightforward - I much prefer the built in flip down mic that is streamlined into the design in this model. Sound is great for the price. It’s an all-around great headset. __Design__ Looking at design a bit more, it’s clear that Turtle Beach wanted to offer a more modernized design in this headset. The plastic cups and band feel durable and appropriate, while the cushions are well thought out. Memory foam makes them comfortable and soft, but the fabric on the ear cups are also pleasantly soft (despite looking like a rougher weave in photos) They retain a bit of head in the ear cups while wearing, but I found them plenty comfortable for extended use. I also appreciate the easy to clean, soft covering on the head band's cushion. If you’ve owned a headset and use hair gel or anything, you’ll know the importance of easy clean-ability here and this headset doesn’t disappoint. :) Also nice are the big chunky wheels for control volume and chat levels. Their easy to feel for and have a satisfying feel. _Sound_ Sound quality is quite good for the price. At first it felt slightly airy, but after a firmware update (via the app) and a set back to their suggested ‘Signature Sound’ default, sound was great. Playing on Xbox Series X, it’s responsive, balanced, and easy to plug and play. _App_ I found Turtle Beach’s Swarm II app is modern and responsive. Updating my headset’s firmware was super simple and it allows for easy selection of game presets and ‘Superhuman Hearing’ to emphasize sounds that could help you hear coming enemies in games more easily. Overall, this is a great headset. In a market with so many offerings, Turtle Beach really nailed it this time. Really good value for the price.

    Pretty good sound quality and the headset is well built. It is also not heavy. Memory foam ear cup and head band makes this pretty comfortable to wear. This headset is glasses friendly too so I have no complain when wearing glasses with this. However, some user might not like the shape of the head band, it is flat at the top and you will feel the band is pressing down on one spot on your head. See picture. Other than that, this headset has all the controls you will need on the headset itself and they are well spaced. My friends said my voice is loud and clear so the mic is doing a good job. It is mono channel though with A.I. noise reduction. However, the mic monitoring is amplifying the wind noise from the fan in the room. I can also hear some clipping on all the sound in mic monitoring. The instruction in the quick start guide said to go to https://turtlebeach.com/swarm2 but it open https://support.turtlebeach.com/s/downloads?language=en_US and you have to choose Stealth 600 Gen 3. If you type in the search box, it will show Audio Hub instead of Swarm 2. Installation is straight forward once you got the correct software. Upon installation, it will start to update the firmware. This headset support wireless using the usb dongle and support Bluetooth. The usb dongle also differ from the quick start guide, the guide said there are 2 dongles, one for xbox and one for PC and PlayStation but I only got one dongle and it has a switch where you can select between xbox or usb so I guess if you select usb, it means PC and PlayStation. Using USB will provide low latency wireless connection. The box said it is designed for xbox and a smaller print says also works with PC, Playstation, Nintendo Switch and mobile phone. For xbox, it supports series x/s and xbox one; for PC, it supports windows 10 and 11. I tested with PC using the usb dongle and Bluetooth, I also tested with my mobile phone via Bluetooth. No problem when connected using Bluetooth but when using the usb dongle with my PC, I notice volume is soft at level 50 and you cannot hear anything at all when the volume level is below 20. The volume adjustment is nonlinear too. This is strange and is most likely software issue because I don't experience this issue when using Bluetooth. This happen to two different PC I tested. Battery life is excellent, I believe the 80 hours battery life number stated on the box. This head set has superhuman hearing feature, I feel like it is just suppressing other sound and amplified the sound of interest like footsteps.

    The sound quality is excellent for gaming consoles and PC and the battery life lets me go for several days before having to charge the headset. The fit can be a bit snug at first, but after a couple days will loosen up to be more comfortable; I've been able to wear it for several hours at a time without issue. I would recommend using the Bluetooth mode for Switch because when I tried connecting the dongle to the switch dock for wireless mode the sound would keep cutting out. One thing I would especially recommend is to always turn on the headset before putting it on because the activation beep and notice will always default to max volume for some reason. The headset will also default to max volume when using with Playstation 4 or 5 but will remember volume level when using with PC in wireless mode or Switch in Bluetooth. Only other downside to the headset is the need for an app to update the firmware, but it does help monitor the charge level and adjust certain features.

    It’s a definite comfort improvement over the v1, v2. Quick switch to Bluetooth is very nice so it works with iPhone and AppleTV. There’s customizable eq but you must use the swarm app and sound is acceptable. This is definitely not audiophile quality sound but just decent sound. It’s a fair deal I think.

    Stealth 600s are great! They look good and feel like a good-quality product. The app has sound adjustable modes from increased bass, and footsteps mode to signature sound mode. The bass is solid for the price, but overall bass sounds good when listening to music in Bluetooth mode. This is my first time trying a Turtle Beach product and I am satisfied with it. Price and features are worth it!

    Good Fit, Decent Sound, But Unreliable Connection

    I recently tried out the Turtle Beach Stealth 600 Wireless Gaming Headset, and I wanted to compare it to the Arctis Nova 5 Wireless Headset that I reviewed earlier. Here are my thoughts after using it: Pros: *Larger Ear Cups: The ear cups on this headset are bigger and fully cover my ears, providing a more comfortable fit compared to the Arctis Nova 5. *Decent Sound Quality: The sound quality is decent, with a bit more emphasis on bass, but still well-rounded for a good gaming experience. *Adjustable Ear Cup Height: The ear cup height is adjustable, which is nice for finding the right fit. Cons: *Poor Mic Quality: The mic quality is not as good as the Arctis Nova 5. It’s a noticeable downgrade. *Side Tone Monitoring: The side tone monitoring isn’t great. You have to raise the monitoring volume to at least 80% or higher to hear yourself well. *Clamping Force: Without the elastic headband, there's more clamping force, making it a bit less comfortable over long periods. *Unreliable Wireless Connection: The main issue that made me return this headset was the unreliable wireless connection. Whenever I started talking or recording, the audio would disconnect. I had to switch audio sources or push the quick switch button to get it working again. Sometimes, I even had to unplug and replug the USB dongle. *Software Issues: Despite updating the software and headset to the latest version, these issues persisted. It might be a problem with the Xbox dongle versus the PC version, but I had to return the headset because of these problems. Overall, while the Turtle Beach Stealth 600 has some good features, the poor mic quality and unreliable wireless connection were deal breakers for me. TL;DR Pros: 1. Larger ear cups that fully cover the ears. 2. Decent sound quality with a good bass emphasis. 3. Adjustable ear cup height for a better fit. Cons: 1. Poor mic quality compared to the Arctis Nova 5. 2. Side tone monitoring requires high volume to be effective. 3. Increased clamping force due to lack of an elastic headband. 4. Unreliable wireless connection causing frequent audio disconnections. 5. Persistent software issues despite updates.
