    Hello everyone, I purchased this headset at BestBuy for an easier and faster return/exchange if needed, not on amazon, but wanted to leave an honest review here. I was deciding between this Stealth 700, Stealth 600 and Platronics Rig 800LX. Stealth 700 has noise cancelling mic and only 10 hours of continuous play. direct connect to X1 Stealth 800 the only advantage 15 hours of play. direct connect to X1 Rig 800 has 24 hours, noise cancelling, BULKY and NOT a direct connect. At the end i was considering Rig 800 and Stealth 700 due to noise cancelling. The reason why i went with Stealth 700 as first model were: 1) Direct connect to X1 2) NOT as bulky as Rig 800 3) Bluetooth that you can connect to your phone and listen to music or talk. Basically this headset so far (1 day old) is AMAZING! I read and read and read alot of comments and people complaining about how this headset is not comfortable, too quiet or the mic is horrible. Well LUCKILY i experienced NONE of those issues. I did update the headset to the latest firmware BEFORE i even turned them ON! Charged them to full battery and updated right away. Immediately i notice how nice they sound and for people who are saying they are too quiet.. HOW? I mean I'm sure some are getting bad pairs, but how the heck is this headset too quiet when I set my volume probably at 50% and it's LOUD.. Like on full volume it's not exactly comfortable as the sound is just too much, so 50 it is. My only real concern that I have and again this could be purely because the audio in a game is directional is that few times it seemed as left side was slightly louder than right side..most people may not even notice this, but this could be due to what i was doing in the game. When I test some music from my phone the sound was pretty much equal and nothing to complain 1-2% difference could be due to hearing or who knows.. I purchased 2 year replacement warranty for $20 so if they break in a year, who cares I get a new pair. Microphone clarity: I checked with people in the game and asked them to report the audio clarity.. No one complained that they could not hear me. Noise-Cancellation, I have not had a chance to test it. Comfort: Ear cups are soft, foam may have been a little more comfortable, but padded leather will work and is easier to clean so no big deal. Another note to consider is that these are not bulky at all. Build quality: Now this is something i was worried about, because the store model that i held in my hands felt loose and cheap. Which is somewhat to be expected since store display models get abused by 1000 weirdos. When i opened my own set, i was impressed the how everything was tight and just felt good holding in my hands. Conclusion: Give this a try, but make sure to fully charge and update to latest firmware prior to using.

    Realest Review from a Fortnite Player

    Posted
    ronny973

    I started playing Fortnite a month ago. I first bought Afterglow 3s....then returned and bought 30 dollar TB(cant remember name) I then returned and bought xo three which is a cool little headset but i knew i needed something better. I returned and bout xo 4s which is basically the same as three. I then bout Stealth 600 which was a ok headset. All the headsets let me hear footsteps but the 600s let me know exactly where someone was. Example: On Fortnite if im in Titled in Umbrella building on middle floor. I knew if someone was upstairs or downstairs. The other headsets let me hear someone on a different floor but i never knew if they were up or down. Although the 600s was ok , i knew i needed a headset with better sound. It was gonna be either the Razer ManOWar headset or the Stealth 700s. I decided last minute to go with these. I am so glad i did. First thing i did was update firmware(very important). The sound is rich and the fact that i can connect with my Mac computer to listen to music blew me away!!!!! I listen to the music on a low level and can still talk on mic and hear footsteps!!!! Some say you cant charge and play at the same time but thats a lie!!! TB doesn't provide a long micro usb but if u pick one up you can def charge and play at the same time. I was buying and returning headsets all month but i knew right away that i wasnt taking these back at all! I will update my review in 6 months- a year if i can but i love these. With a protection plan from best buy im even more confident in my purchase. Only con i ran accross is my Iphone 6+ not letting me pair with the headset. But that might be because i dont update my ios lol. Im fine with it being connected to my mac mini.

    This headset is getting underrated scores due to timing. I’m a 35 year old gamer and have loved spending extra time playing with friends. Let me point out that I’m in no way into competitive (hardcore/professional) gaming and I can’t speak for PlayStation. It is a new headset and with most new tech, can be upgraded and/or fixed with firmware updates. I’ve searched for a year for a good pair of “cans” and finally settled on this. At first, I thought what most people think, “you get what you pay for” so I bought a pair of elite 800x. Terrible idea!! While there was absolutely nothing wrong with the sound quality (I loved it btw) it was like having a vice grip on your head. Omg was it bad!!! 8 months later and I found out about these. It was love at first play. Granted, I didn’t run into the issues that most had when these were first released, but most if not all of them have been fixed with the updates. Honestly, I don’t need “cans!” I have a wonderful surround sound and I got them just because. Sound is tight and everything about them is nice, even build quality and comfort. Mix these bad boys up with the new sonic “spatial” surround on Xbox and I have to say that it’s 100% worth every penny. I would have probably given this a 4 maybe 4.5, but I firmly believe that they got “choked” by the people that got them early on and didn’t give turtlebeach enough time to recalliberate. It is worth it and will give you the extra edge that your looking for.

    I just purchased this headset as my first for my xbox one. I've never had one but I consider myself an audiophile so I'm a pretty tough judge. I did my research and watched plenty of reviews. my ulitmate decision was between this set, the SteelSeries Arctis 5, and I wanted to try on the budget friendly Plantronics 400hx. The plantronics was the cheapest feeling headset/set of headphones I've ever picked up. I didnt even test out the sound because they felt so cheap. And the adjustments on the sides were the oddest set up I've ever seen. It has notches. They were the least expensive set I was considering. The SteelSeries was not available at my bestbuy so I tested out the Turtle beach 600 and 700 series. I did not want to spend more than $100. The 600 did not have any leather element to it, which I feel is important to get a good rich sound. So I went with the 700 and I have not been disappointed yet. Pros- Sound quality is impeccable. I mostly play first person shooter games and I hear every blade of grass moving. Customization- there is an app that needs to be downloaded to adjust all of your specific sound settings. There are also two volume wheels on the left earpiece, one for chat and one for game sound. Weight- super light weight on my head. does not weigh down my ears. Price-for the price i feel like it is definiely a good deal. I got them on sale for $120, $30 less than their regular price. Though I still think they are a great deal at $150 Bluetooth or Wired- has the option to do both. connects very quickly just like a controller. Microphone- not awkwardly long. to mute, just flip the piece back. Cons- Head piece- the band that goes over my head was beginning to make the top of my head sore after about 2 hours of gaming. It might just need to be broken in a bit. So far this is the only con. will update if i find anything else. I did see some poor feedback when they first came out, but it seems that Turtle Beach has fixed those bugs with their updates. Great buy!!

    The features of this headset are great for the money, but their are several flaws that I have not been able to resolve with tech support. First of all the need for tech support drops this review one star right off the bat. It loses another star for the other issues. It is adjusted by the apps which are available on PC, Android and IOS. That would be fine except that the apps can rarely connect to the headset. It is really hit and miss. So why do I need to use the apps? That is how you adjust the mic monitor (how loud your own voice is in the headphones). That is the main reason I have had to use it I think. I wish there was a setting for adjusting the loudness of the headphones and the mic levels. This is a huge missing feature if you ask me. I have problems with the mic picking up too much at times and volume issues with BT connected devices. Yes, you can use the headset as a normal non-gaming noise-cancelling headset as you commute on the train or whatever. But if you have an iOS devise it will likely be too loud. If you have an Android device it will be too quiet. So it really would be great if I could adjust those levels. But the ability to connect these headphones wirelessly to the Xbox (and without a dongle/adapter) and simultaneously to a BT device is the way it should be. The volume dials are a bit lacking but get the job done. I appreciate that the are not push button but rather analog dials. All in all I was hoping for more from a headset at this price range and I am tempted to take another star off. This is the second time I have been disappointed by TB so I think I will give some Astros a chance next time.

    Excellent after Firmware Update

    I tried these and the Astro A20 side by side for a week. Both have excellent sound but what sold me on these TBs was the built-in wireless connection specifically for xbox (aka no adapter needed), bluetooth, and comfort. I prefer the leather ear pads to the foam on the A20s (which was a bit itchy to me). My tv is roughly 12 feet from my chair so using a wired connection to the tv or the controller is just a hassle. I prefer wireless. The range on these is amazing to me and definitely improved after a firmware update. I previously used the TB 420x+ which had great range too but this set is better. I can go up to my 2nd floor with these on and stay connected. PROS: - separate volume controls for game sound and chat. - no adapter - connects wirelessly to the xbox like your controller does - flip-up mic mute (simply flip the mic up to mute game chat) - bluetooth - absolutely fantastic sound (especially when enabling Dolby Atmos on the xbox) CONS: - the leather on the ear pads isn't perforated so it doesn't breathe well (meaning your ears will get a little sweaty) - TB has taken the preset audio modes out of the buttons and forced the user to change them via a setting in the software you use to update the firmware. I am not a fan of this approach. The 420X+ had the ability to cycle through these modes by simply pressing a button. - rubberized buttons feel cheap on the headset and are difficult to locate at times

    Great for reducing Mom/Spouse-Aggro

    Speaking from the point-of-view of said mom/spouse! I work at my computer which happens to be within swinging distance of the TV and gaming system. Best Buy offered for me to test out the Turtle Beach Stealth 700 for Xbox One and I couldn't say yes fast enough. With a spouse and a daughter who are obsessed with Overwatch, I regularly have to ask them to turn down the volume while I'm working (or trying to think straight). The Stealth 700 for Xbox One not only provides the gamer with incredible surround sound (you can hear the directional footsteps of opponents as well as sounds nearby - or faint in the distance. In addition, this headset features Active Noise Cancellation thus blocking outside distractions. The audio controls are customizable and the mic turns off when flipped away from the mouth, something not standard in all headsets! (That's a big deal when you're trying to multi-task playing the game and mitigating roommates/family conversations.) As a bonus, it fits comfortably over glasses! It's a high-quality headset with multiple features and is comfortable for extended wear... and perfect for minimizing mom/spouse aggro.

    Got this one as replacement for a faulty Plantronics RIG 800LX, which got raved reviews and so hyped. However, the RIG did not work well in my complicated RF/WIFI situation which I had to put my xbox by the side of router. It caused terrible drops which rendered the headset useless in my case. Plus the hyped Dolby Atmos is not exclusive to the headset, it is a software that you can buy and used in any headset. OK, back to this one, first of all, it is REAL wireless for xbox one using their encrypted bluetooth called xbox wireless. It uses BT protocol instead of the wifi or other RF bands, so in my case not experiencing interferences or drops like the Plantronics (using wifi transmition via a dongle you need to plug into xbox). It connects like your xbox wireless controller, so no dongle needed, also can be used to power on your xbox. It connects to your laptop or smartphone/tablet via a separate BT chip (you actually see two bt macs for this one devices when you trying to connect to smartphone, use the one with headset symbols) like a regular BT headset. The noise cancelling is a joke, but other than that ,I think sound quality is good. This definitely is better than 3.9/5 rating shown here. A lot of the bad reviews came from early buyers who got all sorts of problems, and ended up returning the device (no follow up or update). I think their effort to make it work (and it did improve) is worth praising.

    Truly wireless with lack luster audio, will return

    Picked these up and updated the firmware immediately on them as suggested. I will be returning these as they do not meet my standards. Pros 1) Truly wireless with the Xbox One, was able to quickly sync them and was ready to go. The settings within the xbox are simple 2) While remembering what all the buttons do is tricky, the bluetooth app itself makes this easy. Its a bit gimmicky but works well. 3) I wore these for 3 hours with glasses and didn't have any comfort issues. 4) Automatically turn off when you turn off your xbox. That just a nice feature so you dont forget and run your battery down. 5) No issues with mic, everyone could hear me fine, the lift to mute worked great. Cons 1) The audio isn't that great, any setting with base boost will cut out when the drivers try and push the base. They were not useable with any base setting. This was enough for me to return them itself. 2) Bulky plastic feel, holding them feels like you are holding a much cheaper set of headphones. While I dont think they are going to break they just dont feel as nice as other $150 headphones 3) Active noise canceling works ish 4) After three hours of use, xbox showed they only had 1/2 battery life left. 5) I had a bit of an eco, when I spoke I could hear myself through the speakers. Playing with the settings i was able to get it soft but never gone.

    Seriously Flawed Out of the Box, but....

    You must update to the latest firmware: ***NEW FIRMWARE UPDATE AVAILABLE - VERSION 2.1.1 - SEPT. 13, 2017*** This seems to have corrected the issues I had out of the box: 1. Audio/bluetooth disconnecting 2. Xbox audio cutting out, microphone intermittent drops. I did not experience "buzzing" as others have mentioned, so I don't know if that has been corrected. They are not as comfortable as my Elite Plus Tournament headphones, and while the sound is good, it's not up to the same standard as the Elite Plus. What I love about these is I am free from cords.. Windows Sonic (simulated surround sound) works well, though it may not be up to par with DTS, but Dolby Atmos (30 day free trial, $15 to purchase) is exceptional. If you get this headset (or already have it), definitely install Atmos and the demos. Mic quality is good, and the active noise cancellation is a plus. I'm not sure of the construction quality -- lots of plastic. Even though in general I don't purchase extended warranties, it may be a good idea to get the optional Best Buy warranty with it just in case. I had the Stealth 500x wireless headset and while the electronics were fine, the headband eventually broke. Turtle Beach should not have released these when they did; the product wasn't ready and it makes Turtle Beach look bad, but the firmware update seems to have corrected the problem out of the box.

    Not good in high density population

    The headphones are above average in performance for the price range. Sound like Turtle Beach boomy as usual however if you live in a highly dense populated area such as a apartment complex it may not be a good option. Even with the updates the xbox built in wireless tech seems to not fair well for full audio and mic bandwidth and tends to chop into what sounds like a broken record. The tech works great for controllers and mics but I don't think it was intended to handle what Turtle Beach is trying to through at it when in a massive wifi populated area. In a quiet place with only 1-3 routers in earshot it works really good but if you have more that 20 and all the wireless phones and everything else it falls apart really bad. The Bluetooth however works way better even in a busy train ride it never faltered for me with my music a fare distance in my pack. Ultimately if you live in a house with router more than 5 feet away they should work great in apartments not so good, just depends on what kind of versatility you need.

    I read the reviews for the headset, but went ahead and got it anyways, because of the black Friday sale, and there was some even newer firmware updates than most the reviews mentioned. All in all, when the headset works, it's great. The issue is at least once a play session either the microphone screws up, and my friends say I sound like a robot, or the incoming audio screws up and either sounds distorted or just cuts off intermittently. I think Microsoft is working with Turtle Beach and they really want the headset to work well, as it's as far as I'm aware the first Xbox Wireless headset (using the same protocol as the controllers to sync to xbox etc.). I think this because I got a message from Xbox Live saying "hey, we think you're using one of these 2 headsets (stealth 600 or 700) these get constantly better, make sure you go update the firmware" Anyways, point being, maybe some future firmware update will remove the last of my issues with it, and the headset will be great. I'm not sure I can wait for that, as it gets pretty annoying to turn off and on frequently, so may end up returning mine.

    I decided that the poor rating on these must be a fluke and went ahead and purchased them. Build Quality: Look cool, but when held feel very cheap. Sound Quality: Even after updating the firmware and adjusting the settings via my Win 10 comp, not great. The game sounds fine, but not spectacular. The biggest problem I have is that people in Xbox party chat sound like they are talking underwater. Xbox Wireless Technology: Not ready yet. Seems simple - press a wireless connection button just like how you'd pair an xbox controller to your console. The result - it does connect rather easily, but once in a while the sound doesn't come through after connecting. The headphones will also drop their connection every half hour or so; sometimes more often; but only for a few seconds. The real problem here is that after reconnecting, you can no longer talk in party chat, you can only hear people. You must leave the chat and re-enter it for the headset to connect properly. Started driving me nuts. Summary: Don't buy these. I look forward to future iterations of no-base station wireless headphones, but it just isn't working properly now. The only thing that impressed me about these (Xbox Wireless Technology) is still a weakness.

    Great Headset to Keep Quiet After-Hours

    As a parent with two little ones, I do most of my gaming late at night. This helps keep things quiet while I do! My first truly wireless gaming headset, Stealth 700 connects effortlessly to the Xbox One family of consoles - just like the controllers do. No USB dongle or any additional gadgets - just pure wireless (it works with some Windows 10 PCs as well). The Turtle Beach mantra is "Hear Everything, Defeat Everyone," and that can be the case here. The "Superhuman Hearing" feature balances things out, making online multiplayer particularly exhilarating. All the little details can be heard, which means it can be easier to hear people creeping up on you. Acitve Noise Cancelling technology helps eliminate background distractions, while the price point (under $150!) brings premium sound into a a much more affordable range when compared to previous headphone releases. The surround sound also makes movies sound great, and since you can also use these with your phone or tablet via Bluetooth, that opens up the possibilities for even more portable entertainment options with BIG sound. I dig it.

    First, do NOT purchase if you have a router using 2.4Ghz and/or 5Ghz bands near your xbox and headset. If you do purchase update the firmware. XBOX: Routers using those bands have caused issues with my connection and others (see other negative reviews) and will cause headset drops and loss of connection. I was lucky that my router was just a satellite and only a nice to have so I was able to unplug and use the headset as intended. The microphone is very sensitive and I did annoy some friends when eating ice cream. Sound on Destiny 2 for example was quite good. If you read this Turtle Beach, Please fix router issues. Bluetooth: I am not having any issues connecting to my PC using bluetooth including headset functionality. App Support: I do not have an IPhone or Android phone so I am unsure how the app works with the headphones. Sound and Comfort: I am quite happy with the sound quality and comfort. I suggest listening to the dolby access headphones videos to see what we should expect when more games start to use dolby atmos in the future. I was happy with the sound produced from the headset when dolby wants to show off.

    Awesome features and comfort!

    The Turtle Beach Stealth 700 headphones are worth every penny because of the great audio, countless features, and their comfort. There are many features on these headphones that make them awesome, including a nice price tag of $150. They have an active Noise-Cancellation feature that allows you to listen better when you have a fan, voices, or other background noise near you so you can focus more on the game. The cushion surround on the headphones is super comfortable and our son found that he could wear them for much longer periods of time before needing a breather. (As a parent – let me quantify that “much longer periods of time” is measured in two hours blocks. He can wear them ALL day without issue.) Turtle Beach’s unique ProSpecs™ glasses friendly design allows people with glasses to be wear the 700 Stealth headset more comfortably and not have to take away cushions or have them adjusted in a special way. You will get 15 hours of battery life in total and with the Active Noise-Canceling and Bluetooth functions on it can last up to 10 hours.

    3 Strikes, You're out! Would not recommend!

    Strike 1. Poor mic quality. Even with Mic volume all the way up, my friends have a hard time hearing me. If you could adjust the mic closer to your mouth it would resolve the issue. I wish it had the mic like the TB 400 series instead of the hard plastic, non-adjustable boom mic setup. Strike 2. Noise in left ear is so annoying! I can hear it in my sleep now. I believe this is only in the left ear because that is where the battery is located. It is a high pitched buzz/hum noise that is impossible to ignore! There are multiple reports of this issue all over the internet. Strike 3. Disconnects from Xbox consistently! I have yet to have it connect for longer than 10 minutes. Very frustrating in a game. I seriously thought the driver update would fix this but apparently TB still has some work to do. **Final Verdict** The driver update did not solve any of my issues. Nor after contacting TB (who are very friendly BTW) could they provide me with any resolution to these issues at this time. This is going back right now! Would NOT recommend to anyone until they fix these issues!

    This headset is... not good. There is a slight buzzing sound in the left earpiece at all times, and the connection issues are constant. I am using these in a fairly empty living room, with about 5 feet between the xbox console and the headset. The sound is adequate, but in any given hour, I will lose my connection to the xbox 4 to 5 times. This is after updating to the latest versions of the firmware. If you are using party chat when this happens, you will lose the ability to chat with your party. You will either have to power down the headset completely, or leave the party and rejoin. Rinse and repeat about every 10–15 minutes. For a $175 headset, this is unacceptable. The only plus this headset gets is the bluetooth capabilities. It's quite nice being able to stream music from your phone while at the same time being able to chat during a gaming session... when the chat works, that is. Which it barely does. Which makes these headphones nearly useless. Save your money and purchase a different headset. You won't regret, like I did.

    I've had this a month and use it almost daily. It connects quickly with my Xbox One and I have never lost a connection. The sound booms and the headset is comfortable to wear. I hardly ever use the enhanced sound to hear the footsteps in games but it seems to work okay. It appears to just take out the base and ups the treble. I like that there are zero wires. Nothing to the handset and nothing to the Xbox. Occasionally I use the Bluetooth connection which works well with my Note 8. It does decrease the battery life but I just don't use it that much. I like that it's there if I want it. Standard battery life is good. It all depends on how much you use it. I only use it for gaming and not for watching YouTube. Therefore I get several days out of it before I have to recharge. You can also recharge while you are wearing it.

    I was really looking forward to this headset. I made sure I updated them right when I took them out of the box. But right off the bat, I heard this high pitch noise coming from the left ear cup. It was extremely annoying. Then I started noticing randomly, when I was in a group chat, my headset would go quite for a few seconds and the sound was cutting out when the sound came back. I sit about 4 to 5 feet from my tv in my chair and there is nothing blocking the signal and my router is not even close to this headset. So I had no choice but to take these back. I couldn't deal with those problems regardless of the cost of the headset. So I picked up the Astro A20 call of duty edition and so far they're working perfect with no high pitch sound from any of the ear cups. I gave this headset 3 stars because they're very nice quality and very comfortable. I took off 2 stars for the issues they have. Hopefully turtle beach can fix those issues with software, I just don't think they can fix the high pitch with a software update.
