    I mean they're cool.

    I have used them for 2 weeks now and while they are cool and the bluetooth feature is great it doesn't make up for the lack of comfort. I am a YouTuber, twitch streamer, and gamer so i wear these A LONG TIME! for a short gaming session they're fine but anything over 2 hours i'd recommend Hyperx They're only 80 dollars for a great set and they're extremely comfortable by comparison. For me comfort is a huge factor because of the amount of time I wear them a day (9 or so hours) I will be returning mine. HOWEVER, if you're a casual gamer who wants high end here's your fit. but for long sessions I don't recommend. Pros- wireless bluetooth noise reduction (its good but not much different then other headphones I've used in the past) cons- Comfort, like i said, its not super comfortable in general and after a few hours it starts to get REALLY unbearable. Instruction, the instructions and the app aren't super helpful-pful and miss some important parts. Battery, no real heads up its low. it will say "battery low" then die immediately.

    Xbox one wireless stereo headphones

    So for the roughly three weeks that I had the Turtle Beach 700 stealth headphones I wore them maybe a dozen times the issue was I couldn't wear them longer then 20 minutes to a half hour at a time. The sound quality is very good for the price, it's not a true surround sound like Dolby Digital but it is very good for the price and has great sounding high and lows,not great bass though and has a great app that you could customize the main issue is this headphones can press your head and burn your ears ,they get hot and make your head feel squished and I have a large head , so even people with small heads that I've let try them on said that they're not to comfortable . That's the ultimate reason why I took them back. For someone who has a very small to small head I think that'd be great,like i said the sound quality is very good and has the supersonic hearing and it's on app to customize how you want to hear things and it sinks to your Xbox easily but the quality of the comfortability is not great.

    Great when it works, which isn't enough

    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.

    I've had Turtle Beach in the past some work good and some don't it's a bit of luck really.. but the product is great when it works. Although I would recommend it. I do have to say keep in mind it is a Bluetooth headset and they are known to have problems. These problems include failure to boot up properly and when in group chat services other may hear you sound robotic.. But other then that the product is pretty awesome it can connect to multiple Bluetooth devices at once. I have it connected to my PC and my Xbox One at the same time and I can chat on Xbox One while listening to a Video on the PC with no cables pretty awesome! It has a separate voice and chat toggle which is ideal compared to the single slider on the most recent generations of these headsets. But yeah.. just remember it's not perfect and in fact i'm having power issues after only 5-6 months and the robotic voice was there since day one. But i love the headsets features so i've dealt with these issues.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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!

    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.

    Hot Garbage

    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.

    Good headset, but with issues.

    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.

    I could say that the sound quality (which is amazing) is my favorite aspect of the Stealth 700, but I won’t. These are, after all, top-shelf gaming headphones – so stellar sound quality is to be expected. Though I do have to highlight my immense appreciation of the audio nuances in-game, like hearing the rich detail of footsteps complete with such fantastic directional accuracy thanks to the surround sound. What is my favorite aspect? The ease of use. These are genuinely a no-hassle setup, connecting to your Xbox One as easily as your controller does. Equally easily, I connected them to my phone while I write this to listen to the booming thrum of the Blade Runner 2049 soundtrack. Excellent testing choice, if I do say so myself. Combine the digital ease with the physical comfort – these are pleasantly lightweight, modern design with clean lines and comfy faux-leather cups – and you have quite the awesome and neat little package. I dig the Stealth 700.

    Nice head phones. They sound good. They're relatively comfortable. If you have a large head, they wont fit or will be tight. The problem is that they are cheaply made. My old turtle beaches for my 360 were made of quality stuff. You have to charge then with the cord they came with or it wont work. You have to update them with the cord they came with or it wont work. I occasionally have issues with my microphone fading out, but you just have to turn it off and back on. The buttons and volume wheels are difficult to feel for and use, and to really get the full effect you have to pay xbox $10 dollars for Dolby atmos. All in all, dont spend $100+ on these headphones. They sound nice, but not worth it. If you get them on sale for $60, buy them. Otherwise, use a wired headset on your wireless controller.

    I've been using TB headphones for years. I firmly believe the stealth 500's were the best ones they have ever produced. However, after my last pair died I picked these up. I do like the single button wireless link to the XBOX One without the additional transmitter/receiver. However, these are no where near as comfortable as the previous higher end TB headsets. I feel these are more in line with a $50 headset as far as quality of feel is concerned. I also don't like that there are really only two settings you can configure - Noise Canceling (on/off) and Extreme Hearing (on/off), that's it. With prior versions you had much more control over different sound senarios based on the game/what you were doing. I'm still in my return window and may return to give the Astro A50's a try instead.

    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.

    Bought this headset as I was looking for a new wireless headset to play on the xbox one S and soon for the Xbox One X. Out of the box this headset has had issues with connectivity to the xbox. since it utilizes the same technology as the wireless controller I thought this would be an awesome add; however, before and after the firmware update there are still connectivity issues. I completed the update and my headset will still drop after about 20 mins of play every 3 - 5 mins (which is annoying). Also the left earpiece has a constant ringing which others have described in their reviews as well. I can deal with the ringing once the game play starts but the constant connectivity issues kind of beat the point of having wireless headsets as I've had to pull out the old xbox stereo headset. Works 100X better than the Stealth 700s! These are going back to Best Buy tomorrow after having them for 6 days!

    Have had this headset for a while and should have taken it back. The sound quality is somewhat muffled and sounds like mono audio on Xbox. I do like that I can hear the game and chat but since it doesn’t sound that great hearing enemy footsteps is difficult at times and can cause you to lose games. I also have a Plantronics Rig800lx and I do recommend that headset over this one any day of the week, no comparison. The battery life also sucks with the stealth 700 and if using the Xbox to charge don’t plan on using it because it doesn’t charge fully. I’m lucky to get an hour out of it unless it’s plugged into the wall.

    After reading many positive and negative reviews about these I decided I would go ahead and give them a try. I really wanted something capable of both seamless Xbox connections and Bluetooth these fit the bill perfectly. Heeding the manufactures advice I went online to update the firmware, these already had the lastest so no update needed. I connected to my Xbox just like a controller, press one button on the Xbox then one in the headset and you're done. Sounds great through Windows Sonic, directional sound is excellent for hearing enemy footsteps. Bluetooth connection is great for music. Overall a great headset. Excellent sounds, easy connections and comfortable to wear.

    After spending a good deal of gaming time with the headset i can now say that I fully recommend the Stealth 700. The headset is comfortable for the most part, the ear pads are comfortable and well insulated and offer a noise canceling effect. the drawback to this is the lack of breathability for your ears. at the end of a game, I find myself taking them off to give my ears fresh air. The sound quality is top notch, the blutooth connectivity is good, the battery life is ok, the recharge time is very good, and its ease of use is great. It has all the bells and whistles and the build quality to back it, the price point I wish was a little lower. When you bring them home IT IS PARAMOUNT TO UPDATE FIRMWARE AND FOLLOW THE SIMPLE INSTRUCTIONS :)
